In recent years, an insidious trend of “fast fashion” has emerged as a widespread issue, tempting consumers with the lure of cheap clothing designed to fall apart after only a few wears. To achieve maximum profits, companies produce these garments in mass quantities, using the lowest-cost materials and labor possible. This approach, however, contributes to a culture of overconsumption and waste, with significant environmental consequences from production to disposal.

Unfortunately, the commercial refrigeration industry has also succumbed to the siren call of fast manufacturing practices. Dubbed “fast appliances,” these shiny and low-cost refrigerators and freezers are tragically short-lived. Instead of focusing on performance and durability, manufacturers anticipate frequent replacements. They are designed to yield quick profits, not serve as long-term investment for consumers. As a result, more and more of these appliances end up in landfills, contributing to the already significant waste problem.

In a market where disposable appliances are becoming the norm, Everest Refrigeration is a refreshing exception. Instead of chasing the latest trends, we prioritize durability and longevity for our commercial refrigerators and freezers. We craft machines that are built to last and back them with the longest warranty coverage in the industry. With a remarkable three years for parts and labor, five years for electrical components, and ten years for the compressor, Everest provides a sound investment that promises to withstand the test of time.

Everest saw a marked surge in product longevity with the advent of our patented Blizzard R290 technology, another industry first. This is a unique, slide-out cooling cartridge engineered for long-term performance, stable cooling, low energy usage and a hassle-free replacement when required. The cartridge is made up of all the electrical and mechanical parts that run a refrigerator or freezer and comes in a single, compact unit. The swap-out process is simple, taking as little as 30 minutes, with no on-site brazing or welding necessary – effectively giving users a brand new appliance.

The Blizzard R290 comes with additional features that ensure efficient operation and prevent breakdowns. Auto-reverse condenser fans keep the compressor cool and the condenser coil clean, and an auto-diagnostic system constantly monitors the refrigerator and freezer with audio-visual alarms to alert users of any issues. Moreover, the R290 refrigerant used in the Blizzard R290 has zero ozone depletion potential and low global warming potential, making it an environmentally-friendly option that is both efficient and safe.

Investing in a refrigerator or freezer for your business is a decision that can make or break your success, and choosing long-term durability should be the top priority. A disposable machine has no place in your shopping list. As a business owner, the last thing you want is to worry about whether your refrigeration can keep up with your growth. Whether you’re in the market for reach-in refrigerators and freezers, glass door or open air merchandisers, undercounters, chefbases, prep tables, meat dry agers, kegerators, bar coolers, or sushi cases, Everest Refrigeration has a dependable product backed with the industry’s longest and most comprehensive warranty, ensuring that your investment and your peace of mind is never compromised.
