The most common ice machines range from 300 to 600 pounds of ice produced daily. However, there are ice machines that can make up to 2500 pounds of ice in a 24 hour period. For any operation, your ice needs
will vary day by day. For this reason, it is important to purchase a machine that will meet customer demand on your business’ busiest day. It is also a good idea to plan for future growth, and purchase an ice machine that produces 10 to 20 percent more ice than your current needs dictate.
