Product Details

Nugget ice is quickly growing in popularity, and the 1,053 lb Modular Nugget Ice Maker (GEM0956A) from Ice-O-Matic is one of the best nugget ice machines out there. Able to produce up to 1,053 pounds of ice each day, it certainly produces plenty of nugget ice, and it still just 21 inches wide. The ice machine is also constructed with a rugged, stainless steel auger and evaporator, and it features industrial-grade roller bearings and a heavy-duty, sealed gearbox all designed to ensure reliability and maximum longevity. For maximum protection, the ice machine is even fitted with Ice-O-Matic’s SystemSafe load-monitoring system which constantly checks the stain placed on the gearbox, shutting down the system before any problems develop and preventing costly repairs.

Editorial Review

Great for Buffet Display too!

Pearl ice has become really popular lately because it’s a nice chewable ice, but besides that it’s very versatile. Food can be displayed on a bed of pearl ice and works great because it gives a really nice even surface. Because of all the air in it, it chills food faster and keeps it at that cold temperature that’s important when food is in open air for a long period of time. Flake ice is also used for presenting food (especially in deli’s), but is rarely used in drinks so you would need 2 completely different machines. This GEM0956A works for drinks AND food, so it’s a good two-for-one deal.
