Selecting the Right Storage Bin
When selected a bin make sure it will hold enough ice to meet or exceed your daily needs.
You will need a bin that is at least large enough for the daily production capability of your ice
machine. There might be more than one bin that is compatible with your ice machine.
Storage Bin Selection Tips:
- If you run out of ice during the busiest part of the day, your bin is definitely too small.
- If your bin is always full, and you notice a lot of melting, your bin is definitely too large.
- The perfect bin will supply enough ice during your busy times, with little ice lost to melting.
- Bins are available in different shapes and sizes to fit a variety of different kitchens.
The ice machine and storage bin
are contained within a single unit.
Self-Contained Ice Machines
If you need less ice, or have space constraints, consider
a self-contained machine. Self-contained ice machines
combine the ice machine with a storage bin – all in a
single unit. Many of these machines fit under most
40” counters, making them popular choices for small
bars or cafes.
