The technology of the Manitowoc ice machine allows users to put the fan of the machine outside the building. This helps reduce the amount of noise and extra heat that goes into the kitchen and dining area. This type of machine is ideal for big businesses such as stores, hotels, hospitals, and restaurants. It typically holds 1320 pounds of ice, and it also produces large amounts of ice in a short period of time. A few brands that sell this type of ice machine include the following:
For a top-rated nugget ice maker that has plenty of convenient features, we recommend the FirstBuild Opal Nugget Ice Maker. It produces 1 pound of ice nuggets per hour, and the bin can hold up to 3 pounds. The clear bin lets you see how much ice you have available and it’s easy to pull forward when scooping ice (ice scoop included). The bin is also insulated to keep the ice cold, but as it inevitably melts the ice maker will sense the lower level of ice and automatically make more.
To camouflage your bar refrigerator, try using a butcher block slab as a makeshift counter and attach a magnetic caddy for silverware storage. For a secret stash, tuck your refrigerator into a repurposed dresser. Want more personality?
