Ice machines come in two main categories: water-cooled and air-cooled.
Water-cooled ice machines are a great choice. They use cold water to cool the inside and create ice. This means that they do need to be plumbed in to your water system. But once they’re in place, they need very little maintenance, and are very straightforward to run.
These ice makers are especially useful if your kitchen or bar area doesn’t have a consistent temperature. Because the water provides the cooling, there’s no need to rely on the air temperature. If you don’t have an air-conditioning system in your kitchen or bar, a water-cooled ice machine might be the right choice for your foodservice establishment!
Water-cooled ice machines are often quieter than their air-cooled equivalents, as they don’t rely on noisy fans. If noise is an issue in your kitchen or bar, this could be an important consideration for you.
Ice machines are one of the most important appliances in any bar or commercial kitchen. You need ice for drinks, food displays, helping to chill pre-prepared food, and countless other uses.
When you’re choosing a water-cooled ice machine, you will need to remember that there are many different types of ice. Do you need to produce full or half dice, nugget or flaked ice, for example?
It’s also important to consider how much ice your kitchen or bar uses each day. Many machines have different capacities, and you may also need to store the ice before use.
We’re confident that there will be something for you in our range of ice makers!
