Keys To Choosing A New Ice Maker For A Restaurant

Lucille Palmer

If you have a restaurant, then you'll need to invest in an ice maker at some point. Then customers can easily keep their beverages cold while they eat. The ice maker marketplace is pretty big but with these search tips, you'll find a model you enjoy using for years.

Get a Significant Production Capacity 

Every ice machine is going to be able to make a certain amount of ice in a day. Usually, this figure is rated by the pound. The best thing you can do is get a significant production capacity so that you can always provide ice to customers that want it.

You should never have to worry about running out and then giving customers a negative experience when getting ice. For instance, if you got an ice maker that could produce hundreds of pounds of ice each day, that would probably be plenty for all of your customers to have enough ice for their beverages. 

Make Sure Major Parts Can be Removed 

Whatever type of new ice maker you get for your restaurant, it will need to be maintained each day. Then you can get a lot of years out of it and still have an optimal performance to look forward to. Maintenance for this machine won't be challenging if your model has major parts that are removable.

You can then take these parts and run them through an industrial washer, getting a thorough clean before placing them back into the right position. Some parts you'll want to remove from this machine might include the ice bin at the bottom, its grill, and vents on the side. 

Verify Anti-Microbial Protection is Offered

You don't want your new ice machine to be able to collect a lot of germs and bacteria because these things would make this appliance less safe to use on a regular basis. Fortunately, there are plenty of new ice machines that have anti-microbial protection.

Their parts will thus resist bacterial growth and make it much easier to keep this machine sterile and safe to use for each customer. You'll still want to clean parts regularly, but bacteria and germs won't get out of control.

If you want to give customers the chance to get high-quality ice in a convenient manner, then you need to invest in a new ice machine for your restaurant. Just make sure you get a model that's long-lasting, easy to clean, and produces quality ice quickly.

Safety First With Industrial Equipment and Supplies

Hi, my name is Lewis McKinley and this is a blog about the safety of industrial equipment and supplies. When working with industrial equipment, employees must implement all safety measures to ensure they stay safe at all times. When I was growing up, my dad was a safety inspector, so my siblings and I were always reminded about safety and he taught us how to stay safe no matter what we were doing. Since I learned about safety at a young age, I always make sure that safety is a priority in everything I do. I enjoy doing research about safety and I keep up with changes in safety regulations for many industries. I hope that after you read my blog, you'll learn measures that you can take to remain safe around industrial equipment and supplies.
