27in Sandwich prep an 10 cu. ft. fridge or 48in sandwich prep - Wed, 11/7/12 12:40 PM

I cannot decide on my last piece(s) of equipment. I have 59" wide space to spare for my refrigeration.
 
I need a sandwich prep station but cannot decide on a 27" single door unit and a small 10 cubic foot refrigerator or a double door 48" sandwich prep station.
 
I am trying to think what I will store in the refrigerator on a daily basis. Likely it will be extra meat that is prepped in pans, extra condiments, extra toppings and extra cheese. I already have an area for a cold drink cooler, so drinks are not needed in the refrigerator.
 
The benefit to the 48" unit is that I can get 18 toppings pans versus the 8 pans that I could fit in a 27" unit. With the extra pans, I can have more toppings up top versus taking up storage space in a refrigerator.
 
Also, I am thinking that in the case of events where I need to have more food on hand, I can have a ice cooler with extras. I have seen food trucks use ice chest to store back up supplies.
 
Input?

If you have the space go with the 48" sandwich prep station.
You'll end up with extra cooler space for now but at some point down the road you'll be so happy you did. Cooling space and counter top/prep space are the two things you can never have to much of.

Thanks for the input. I was thinking the same thing plus the single 48" unit will use less current. It seems that 48" prep table is the way to go.

I have a two door, wish I had room for a three sometimes.
Go with the two door.

Thanks. Decided to go with a 48" double door unit. There is a guy selling one on CL and  will deliver it to me for 1175 total.

yeah, you're gonna wanna have extra storage rather than wishing you had extra storage. it fills up fast. I have a one door prep and a  2 door work top and i pack that thing to the gills to the point where it hurts to see it struggle to keep cool, but i manly keep cases of soda in the 2 door when doing big events.

48" sandwich prep arrived. The depth due to the chopping board is 34" so it will stick out a bit. Now to get it into the truck.
