Choosing the Best Commercial Ice Cube Machines
Published by Viktoria Brown on January 5, 2023
Looking for your next commercial ice machine to suit all your business needs? Here at ICE4 we’re experienced suppliers of commercial ice cube machines, available in numerous different capacities to suit your needs. When looking for your next ice cube maker machine, there’s a few important considerations to make before you buy. We’re here to help you figure it out…
Determine the Correct Machine Capacity
It may sound obvious that ice cube machines have many different uses. But determining how much ice you’re roughly going to need is essential. Every business is different, and will operate at various capacities, according to the number of people it serves within a given time. For example, on average, food or drinks businesses such as restaurants and pubs are likely to use less ice than a hotel or hospitality. And a health or pharmaceutical company is likely to sit at the top of the tree when it comes to ice usage.
With this in mind, our website here at ICE4 allows you to browse ice machines according to machine capacity, from the smallest, middle of the range, and largest capacities (from 30kg all the way up to 650kg). Each product offers a detailed description of which industry the machine is suitable for, to help you choose. For peace of mind, why not monitor roughly how much ice you’re using on your busiest trading days to help you with your choice?
Which Type of Ice Should I Choose?
Each commercial ice machine specialises in producing one type of ice for a particular use, so the next step is to think about what the purpose of your new ice machine is going to be. Here at ICE4, whether you’re looking for ice machines for hospitality, restaurants or perhaps bar ice machines, we offer both ice cube and granular / nugget ice machines, each suitable for different uses…
1. Granular / Nugget Ice
Layers of flaked ice freezes together to form soft pearl-shaped ice, known as granular or nugget ice. With a slow melting rate, this type of ice is great for industries which require products to cool immediately, such as in wellbeing centres like gyms and spas, large catering companies, and pharmaceuticals.
2. Ice Cubes
Larger in size than granular / nugget ice, ice cubes are widely recognised as being great for pub ice machines, as well as for use in bars and restaurants – though nugget ice is also suitable for these settings too.
