Deciding on the right ice machine for you depends on a number of factors. One of those being the form of ice you wish to serve your customers. The most appropriate ice for you, depends on the items you’re selling and the speed at which you need the ice. Perhaps you operate a luxury bar that sells whiskey, if so, you’ll want a different type of ice than what is sold to put in soft drinks at a family restaurant.
Cube shaped ice is the most popular choice for many of our clients and is great for carbonated drinks as it takes far longer to melt in comparison to other forms of ice. Cubed ice can come in a variety of sizes and is the perfect choice for bars, pubs and family restaurants.
Flaked is where the ice forms in irregular shapes and is most often used in fisheries, laboratories and commercial factories. As the ice is not so solid, it shapes itself around items and provides a cooling environment. Flaked ice can also be used in the production of cocktails and smoothies as they are less abrasive on equipment such as blenders.
Cubelet ice is the toughest form of flake ice and produced at below zero temperatures, but compressed to remove excess water. This decreases the size of the ice to around one tenth of its original size.
This form of ice produces random irregular sized ice that derives from hard compacted flake ice with a slow melt rate.
Crescent ice is transparent crescent shaped ice which can take advantage of free space, thus maximizing storage capacities. The shape of crescent ice means that it is less prone to splashing compared to cube ice and can be used in beverages and for cooling fish.
After you have decided on the type of ice you want to serve at your establishment. You’ll also need to consider the positioning of your ice machine. Where your ice machine is situated is important as you will need power, drainage and a water supply.
