  1. Broken Ice Machine? Here are Some Tips to Get By

    Ice is the backbone of the foodservice industry. There is not a bar or restaurant in the United States that cannot go about their day to day operations without a properly working ice machine.

This machine is unlike any that has ever been created before. Manitowoc has in essence infused the technology of their Indigo ice machines with the compact convenience of an undercounter ice maker. The result was extraordinary – a smaller ice maker with a greater output, which used less water and energy than any of Manitowoc’s previous undercounter ice makers. It is fair to assume that the NEO will soon become the new standard for the undercounter ice makers of the f
