This is an NSF-Certified commercial refrigerator for your milk source. If you are getting a commercial espresso machine that has a milk input, and if you are using it professionally to make espresso-based drinks (e.g., cappuccino and latte), then your local Board of Health will likely require a commercial refrigerator for the milk to ensure that it stays fresh.
This refrigerator holds a 1-Gallon milk jug. The milk input tube to your espresso machine will go into this refrierator. That way, your espresso machine can draw milk to make cappuccinos and lattes on demand. This is a real, 24-hour refrigerator with compressor cooling units. There is no need to empty it at closing.
The refrigerator opens at the front (see photo), which makes it easy to load and unload even when you've put the refrigerator under a counter. The refrigerator has three access holes for your milk tube to enter: one on the top of it, and one on each side. This way, you can run the milk tube into the refrigerator on either side, or on its top, whichever is most convenient depending on how you've chosen to place it. The refrigerator comes new with all of the access holes sealed with plastic plugs. Simply take out the plug that you choose for access, and insert the milk tube.
The refrigerator allows you to set the temperature. The thermostat knob is on the back of the unit with the power switch. You can set the temperature to your liking, turn it on, and you're done! There's an NSF-Certified thermometer inside the refrigerator that will regulate the temperature as you've set it.
The refrigerator door seals magnetically to prevent it from opening by accident. In addition, there is a lock and key on the front of the unit. You can lock the door shut to prevent anyone (but you) from opening the refrigerator.
The body of this refrigerator is black, and it has a polished steel door. It holds a 1-Gallon milk jug into which you'll run your milk line. The milk line can enter the refrigerator from either side at a height of 11.5", or you can run it into the top of the refrigerator.
