Frost Tops and Cold Slabs

Frost Tops are either drop in units or full cold counters or serving stations with the frost top integrated into a cabinet (which is typically mobile thanks to casters). With a frost top you gain several benefits. Most drop in frost top units are designed to be inserted into an existing steam table or serving counter and are available in several sizes. These units can hold multiple food pans, which sit directly upon the cold top and keep food items extremely cold. Full Frost Top stations provide you single, large chilled surface to use as a serving location for plates, bowls, and trays of food product that require freezing temperatures for preservation. These units are ideal for displaying bowls of pudding, slices of pie or cake, and other cold and frozen desserts so guests can grab them as they go through your buffet line or salad bar. The refrigeration system is typically integrated and mounted on the bottom of the frost top. The bases of the frost top serving stations can be open, enclosed, or include integrated cabinets for more storage. Some models can utilize breath guards and lighting. Most frost top units come with NPT Drains that remove condensation.

Cold Slabs are designed to provide a chilled surface for your employees to prep ice cream with mix-ins. Put on a performance and mix your frozen treats with sweet snacks using ice cream spades. Most Cold Slab units are drop-in models and create a continual cold surface.
