    Ice-O-Matic HISU050 compared to ICEU070To clarify, Ice-O-Matic is offering a new undercounter ice machine to both males and females, but Ice-O-Matic has labeled these new units with the acronym “HIS”.

  4. A Quiet Ice Machine is Key for Hotel Guests' Rest

    Do Not Disturb Sign on Door KnobWhile recently browsing hotel reviews, we noticed a recurring trend coming to light - a lot of people are unsatisfied with their overnight hotel stays due to the noise created by an obnoxious ice machine! The negative reviews were varied – some complained about room cleanliness or poor room service, but the ice machine was the number one culprit when it came to ruining guests’ sleep time. Whether it was from a whirring condenser, the clanging of a malfunctioning machine, the sound of ice dropping in the middle of the night, or the noise made by people accessing ice - a room next to the ice machine was often conducive to a poor night of rest.

    For most hotel and motel owners (save for ski resorts and those in more temperate climates), the summer months bring the greatest influx of visitors. This is the
