Ice makers that deposit ice into bins is one thing, but ice makers that dispense ice from a dispensing chute are another thing entirely. Hotels, hospitals, cafeterias and other food service establishments may find that ice dispensers are the answer to their operational dreams. Choose a floor model or a countertop model depending on your application and yield requirement.
Hotel ice dispensers are ideal for hotel and motel hallways where guests are serving themselves, filling their ice buckets for afternoon cocktails or late night room parties. Ice-O-Matic does well to make sure that operation is simple. Buttons labeled “Push to Dispense” ensure that these products are completely user-friendly, dispensing a set amount of ice per second to control output. The hotel type dispensers are also insulated with an average of four inches of foam for supreme ice preservation.
Choose a countertop model for food service environments like healthcare facilities, cafeterias or even restaurants in which a dispenser is more practical than a soda fountain or a traditional ice machine and bin. Dispensing ice like this is best for filling one cup or bucket at a time while maintaining a high standard of hygiene. Countertop models may be placed at self-service stations, such as near an iced tea dispenser, to give customers the best opportunity to get as much ice as they want.
