The ICEU150 from Ice-O-Matic: If It’s Ice You Want, Ice You Shall Receive
Too many people nowadays are concerned with the technological revolution that is overtaking the world. While I don't want to bore everyone with an ultra-conservative, anti-progressive, "back in my day, things were better" rant, even I must admit, some things were better the way they used to be. They were better when you could buy a product and reasonably expect it to perform up to its capabilities, and your expectations. Ice-O-Matic's steadfast commitment to creating an undercounter ice machine that outperforms its competitors is something that has changed little over the years. With the ICEU150, you can receive ice production greater than any other undercounter ice machine in the same class.
When it comes to the ICEU150's ice making capabilities, Ice-O-Matic puts all their eggs in one basket. There is no complicated electronic configuration to sort through. There is no touch screen or laser beam to detect your presence. No, the Ice-O-Matic cannot babysit your kids or make you breakfast either. The ICEU150 lives up to Ice-O-Matic's slogan: Ice, Pure and Simple™. It was designed to make ice, and as an undercounter unit, it was designed to make a lot of it. When it comes to comparing the smaller undercounters, if you need a lot of ice, you need the ICEU150 from Ice-O-Matic.
While Ice-O-Matic's pricing remains extremely competitive, this does not insinuate that this ice machine is a cheaply built unit. Quite to the contrary, Ice-O-Matic offers the longest warranty in the ice machine world, and extends it with the purchase and replacement of a water filter. The ICEU150 is covered by this same warranty, so you can rest assured that you will be receiving a well-constructed, sturdy undercounter ice machine.
Measuring just 24 inches wide and 39 inches tall, the ICEU150 can fit just about anywhere. Its overall footprint is not affected by clearance requirements either. Some ice machines may require up to eight inches on both sides, so while they may be advertised as "space savers" they really measure 16 inches greater than advertised. With the ICEU150, no side clearance is required for the ice machine to operate, as it takes in and releases air from the front of the machine.
The ICEU150 from Ice-O-Matic is fitting in the home, private club, or behind the bar. Many nightclubs and bars are coming to rely on two or more ice machines for their ice making needs. If your establishment has a smaller bar, or a bar with minimal ice needs, then the ICEU150 will probably be a great fit. In its self-contained bin, this undercounter ice machine can hold up to 73 pounds of ice at full capacity. It will produce up to 174 pounds of ice per day in ideal conditions. Higher temperatures in air and water will negatively affect production with any ice machine, and the ICEU150 is no different.
The ICEU150 is a true ice maker in the sense that all this ice machine does is make ice, and make it in great quantities. For a long lasting undercounter ice machine that produces large amounts of ice every day, there is no other choice than the ICEU150. With all of its ice making power, it is no surprise that the ICEU150 is one of the most popular ice machines available from Ice-O-Matic.
