As luck would (not) have it, I need to replace my walk in cooler box and that will eat virtually all of the cash on-hand (short story: First kitchen space. Bought new refrigeration, got panels for free, 8x10 size. Cut said panels to fit this first kitchen space. Moved. There is not enough silicone or foam on the planet to seal the seams now that panels are re-fitted so need to replace the box. Refrigeration parts only being 2 years old so still keeping those.)
I was intending to buy a high end pastry case (curved glass, glass shelves) but now I can't afford that. What I can afford is an Omcan unit, shown here:
Not necessarily from that particular seller though.
Because so many people told me NOT to buy a Leader brand refrigerated case because of reliability issues; I am trying to do some due diligence and find out whether this brand is worth it or not. The bottom line is I need something in place by mid-September. I like the looks of this (all that glass, and a defogging switch); I do not care for white wire shelves like the True units have, but I know that True units are really good, and they are also about 9K which is what it is going to cost me to replace the walk in cooler (between pulling and disposing of the old panels, buying and installing the new box, reconnecting the refrigeration, the electrical ....)
Anyone have one of these? or know someone who does? What do you think?
