Uses for an Ice Machine in Your Business

Commercial Ice Machines

Most businesses that serve food need a way to produce ice, but other types of companies can also benefit from ice machines – here are some of the most important uses of these great, energy-efficient and economical appliances:

  • Small cafes and bars that don’t need huge quantities of ice can use modular machines to supply their ice needs. The units come in sizes ranging from 22-48”;
  • Countertop dispensers are compact units that are often used in offices or in health care facilities, even in pharmacies. Many of these small units come with a water dispenser function, so they can provide not only ice, but cool, tasty and clear water as well.

Ice machines vary in terms of the size of the ice that is dispensed, too. The most common types of ice are cubes, nuggets and flakes – the first type is the largest and the most common, the second is smaller and easier to chew, therefore more frequently used in the healthcare industry, while the third type is the smallest, mostly used in bars for cocktails, in restaurants to keep vegetables, seafood and meat fresh and in offices where employees can add the flakes to their refreshment, such as lemonade, coffee or tea.
