Valera Freezers: Catering Equipment Review Show, Season 2

By Phil Scoble

Valera are a budget brand that provide basic equipment that won’t break the bank. If you are considering buying a freezer, it’s really important to know what you need it for, and where it’s going to live before you choose your model. But the chances are Valera has a model which could fit your needs.  

What do Valera Freezers do?  

Valera freezers do a job without any bells and whistles. These freezers ARE basic. But, if you choose the right model, for the right place in your business, they will be a great addition to your equipment portfolio.

Who are Valera Freezers for? 

Valera are a budget brand, aimed squarely at new and smaller businesses, who don’t have a huge amount of capital to spend to large pieces of equipment. Cafes, pubs, coffee shops could all benefit from this budget range. 

How does the range perform?  

Valera freezers are available in two flavours: category 4 and category 5. Cat 4 only guarantee they will maintain temperature up to 32 degrees celsius. This means most professional kitchens will be off limits. 

Cat 5 machines can handle up to 43 degrees celsius before they begin to struggle. That makes them more hard wearing and ready for a professional kitchen.

With Valera, cat 4 freezers have a V at the start of their product code and Cat 5 have a U. So if you need a freezer for a hot environment (e.g. in a working kitchen) then go for the Cat 5. If you need it for inside a cafe or somewhere front of house, Cat 4 is fine. 


Valera are a budget brand in refrigeration, but they do the basics well and you can depend on their equipment. This is especially true of the Cat 5 machines. Make sure you spec your equipment correctly and you won’t go far wrong with a machine from this brand.
