Happy almost Valentines Day! In honor of Valentines Day, we thought we’d change up the ice machine topic just a bit. We tend to talk about cuber ice machines a lot, but today I thought we’d change it up a bit and discuss flaker ice machines! I know change can be hard to deal with, but don’t worry, we will make your transition for the day as seamless as possible ;).
Anyways…Unlike cube ice, flake ice is great for using to aid food storage in coolers, plastic bags for seafood, etc. For example, when people order fresh seafood such as shrimp, mussels, crab, lobster (anything in the shellfish family really) from a seafood counter, it is generally served on ice. The best type of ice to serve these items with is flaked ice because it allows for the largest amount of surface area to be covered in ice in order to chill the food rather then freeze it. Flaked ice is also great for chilling other restaurant supplies and even medical supplies.
The 213 lb. Flaker Ice Machine and Bin from Ice-O-Matic can prepare up to 400 lbs of ice, and store up to 213 lbs to use later. This stainless steel machine is great for smaller establishments, and comes with a variety of space saving solutions.
