Choosing the Best Commercial Ice Maker

A commercial ice maker is a must-have appliance for any foodservice business. There are so many options available and finding the best ice cube maker can be a great challenge if you lack an appropriate guide. Get the right ice machine for your bar, restaurant or construction site and consider these factors when purchasing the best ice maker machine to serve your needs:

What will you use the ice for?

There are many different types of ice, all suited to different uses. Cooling drinks, food storage or display, medical purposes. etc. This will determine the type of ice and shape most suited to your intended use.

What type of ice does an ice maker produce?

Most ice makers are designed to produce only one type of ice. Depending on the model, the ice could be half cube, full cube, large cube, gourmet, crescent, chewblet, nugget or flake. Check the ice maker specifications in our online store. Half-cube ice is considered one of the the most versatile type of ice, making half cube ice makers very popular. It is best suited to Post-Mix beverages, cocktails, blended drinks and dispensed ice. When serving or displaying seafood such as prawns, crab or oysters, a flake ice machine would be more suitable for you.

How much ice will an ice maker produce and how much will it store?

You may not use much ice for an extended period, then need a lot of ice in a short time. If so then an ice maker with a larger ice storage bin may be a suitable solution. Matching the storage capacity of an ice bin to your usage can help ensure that you don’t run out of ice when you need it.If you are unsure of the right size ice machine for your business, try our ice maker size guide to help in choosing the right size ice machine for your needs.

What size is the ice maker?

Ice makers come in many sizes. Make sure you have plenty of room to install the ice machine where you want it. Measure the installation area and make sure your new ice machine will fit in the intended space. Don’t forget to leave an air gap around the ice maker and allow good air circulation to prevent overheating and breakdowns.

Are the correct services for an ice maker installed?

All commercial ice makers require three essential services in close proximity to the machine. Power, water and drainage.

Remember to check the specifications of the machine you intend to purchase and make sure to contact a licenced trades-person to have these services installed if they are not within one meter of the intended installation location. See our online store for specifications on a wide range of ice makers or visit our FAQ section for more information.
