Manitowoc is the manufacturer of the #1 selling ice machines in the United States. Manitowoc has proven that their dedication to building top-quality, dependable, long-lasting ice machines was always much more than just empty words. Simply put, Manitowoc ice machines are high-quality, dependable, longest-lasting ice machines. That's why Manitowoc is so popular with their customers and has become THE name in ice machines.
I bought this machine almost a year ago. It is top of the line as far as ice machines go. However, due to the small space I have in my store, it is relatively hot where I placed my ice machine. So this machine does not run as efficiently as it needs be. This is largely my constraint and will probably not affect you if you properly place your ice machine in a more effective area. But let's be honest, who actually follows the manufacturer's guidelines? You'd need a working space probably 5x bigger to be able to optimize equipment placement in terms of letting the heat out. Oh yeah. this thing has got a brain box which tells you what's wrong with it. A nice feature, but not really necessary.
Purchased this 7 months ago and it has worked perfectly! Thrilled with the taste of our water and with the ease of assembly to integrate with the fountain. I have heard employees say they only drink soda and ice from our fountain and it's definitely from this filter system!
i am glad i bought this works great. great price and great quality
We needed to get a small ice machine for our bakery as we have limited power. Overall, this machine worked great until it didn't work any longer. Our service person said this was a consumer product and not for use in a commercial application which I find odd. He wanted to charge us $800 for a new compressor after spending about $275 attempting to repair it so I think we're going to replace it. I think if we had done a better job of maintaining it and keeping the vents clear it would have lasted a bit longer.
Ice bin is a great size and comes with a large ice scoop. When lifted open all the way, the door latches open for ease of use. It is simple and functional, and it looks good too. Great product!
