I have heard more than one horror story about used commercial built in refer 
units. I guess there are some seriously expensive parts on those puppies that 
break, so used ones without warrenty may be a risk. At Sharingwood we have an 
old UGLY used family sized refer. It is less than optimum but it works and it 
was free. I am hoping we can someday buy a newer, better designed unit 
someday. Family sized however, not commercial. I have to agree that I see no 
reason to buy a huge, energy sucking, commercial unit since you really only 
store leftovers. 

If you were going to do a major food coop service, with lots of group cheese, 
etc. then maybe having all that space makes sense.

 We regularily clean our small UGLY refer out and chuck (compost actually) all 
manner of leftovers, which seem to be the items which take up the most shelf 
space. I also hope someday we get smarter about not feeding so much food to 
the worms.
