For kitchens where space is at a premium, refrigeration specialist Katermart has launched a durable, slim-fit counter refrigerator for salad and cold food preparation.

The stainless steel unit has a blown-air cooling system - vital for long service periods - and space-saving compressor. Despite its compact size, it offers fast cooling to between -1°C/+7°C and maintains a uniform temperature to keep food in peak condition.

With two good-sized doors, chunky recessed handles for both safety and hygiene, and two adjustable shelves, the ST1230 offers easy access and flexible storage.

On top, the unit can accommodate up to 12 Gastronorm pans. Easy to clean, it has an automatic defrost system, temperature logging facility, and prominent digital display panel for foolproof operation. A five-year warranty on the compressor is standard and all other parts are covered for two years.
