Chef Bases

Elevate your commercial foodservice operation with high-performing, durable kitchen chef bases.

When specifying chef bases, reliability and flexibility must be taken into consideration. With Randell, commercial foodservice equipment operators can rest assured that they’re not only getting well-built, high-performance refrigeration equipment, they are also getting our most customizable kitchen equipment product as well. Our flexibility in sizing allows customers to specify any base configuration that suits their needs — all without sacrificing the ability to withstand the high-heat, high-grease environments often found in today’s commercial kitchens.

With valuable kitchen assets in the balance, Randell self-contained chef bases are engineered to take on the challenge. Every unit from these lines of commercial foodservice equipment comes with our patented heavy-duty drawer cartridge system and a three-year warranty on the entire drawer system.

With elements like reinforced 12-gauge sub-tops, Randell equipment bases can hold up to 225 pounds per linear foot, making them an indispensable workhorse in every corner of the kitchen.
