Provide Your Patrons with Ice Using a Commercial Ice Machine, Perfect for Large and Small Businesses Alike
Commercial ice machines are designed to provide ice for a variety of applications and businesses. Hotels, hospitals, schools, businesses, bars, and restaurants are just a few of the venues benefitting from commercial ice machine use.
Self-contained ice machines require ice to be scooped out and have both ice production and ice storage capacities. Modular ice machines only produce ice and need a separate ice bin for storage. There are also ice dispensers, which are designed to dispense the ice directly into a cup or other receptacle. Some ice dispensers also dispense water.
Available with production capacities from over 80 to over 1,000 lbs. of ice per day, there is an ice machine perfect for any size business or venue. Undercounter self-contained ice machines are great for smaller applications, like office break rooms or luxury suites, while modular units are perfect for large scale use in restaurants, school cafeterias, or other foodservice industry needs. Hands-free dispense pearl ice machines are designed specifically with healthcare applications in mind.
Another factor to consider other than production needed is the type of ice you would like your commercial ice machine to produce. There are many types of ice varying in size and softness. Clear, cubed ice is a common type for large-scale foodservice needs. A popular ice type offered by Ice-O-Matic ice machines is pearl ice, which is much like the soft, chewable, nugget ice provided at your local Sonic. Pearl ice is a popular option for home, office break room, small business, and luxury suite applications. Both pearl and flake ice, which are both soft and chewable, are imperative in the healthcare industry. Gourmet ice machines are ideal for bars, restaurants, and luxury suites that specialize in cocktail service.
Whether your business is large or small, consider providing your patrons with clear, delicious ice by using a commercial ice machine.
