Valera Fridges: 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 fridge, it’s really important to know what you need it for, and where it’s going to live before you choose your model.

What do the Valera Fridges do?  

Valera fridges do a job without any bells and whistles. These are basic fridges. The key, as with all refrigeration, is to pick the right machine for your situation and your business needs. If you choose , there’s no reason why these can’t be a great addition to your business.

Who’s it for? 

Valera are a budget brand, aimed squarely at new and smaller businesses. If you don’t have a huge amount of capital to spend to large pieces of equipment, check these out. If you are a cafe, coffee shop, pub or small restaurant, these models can do a great job for you.

How does it perform? 

Valera fridges are available in two types: Climate Class 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 much more hard wearing and ready for a professional kitchen.

With Valera, Category 4 fridges have a V at the start of their product code and Cat 5 a U.

So if you need a freezer for a hot environment (for example, 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.

The Valera range has a bit of something for everyone. Undercounter fridges with up to three doors for businesses with tight space constraints. Upright fridges with up to 1200 litres of space for larger pubs and restaurants. Check out the range and chances are it will have something for you.


Valera are budget, but they do the job well. As with all catering equipment, and especially with refrigeration, take your time and make the right choice for your business. There will almost certainly have a model to suit your needs and it could be a great value addition to your business!
