  1. Ice Bucket Challenge Numbers

    Like you, we’ve been watching the ALS ice bucket challenge spread like wildfire around the Internet. People have been challenging their friends, neighbors, celebrities, and even orange traffic cones to take the challenge.  They’re complying, too (well, we haven’t seen the orange cone video yet).  Judging by the number of Youtube videos, over 1 million people have taken up the challenge.  

    This is incredibly encouraging news, because not only does it draw attention to a degenerative disease, it also means that more than one countertop ice maker out there is working a little more to make perfect cubes of ice.  Yes, there are some people out there who are putting ice in their ice buckets to make it extra cold! We wondered just how much ice has been used in all those bucke

  2. The Benefits of an Ice Machine Filter

    Most of the time, the ice in your restaurant stays unnoticed, like the owner’s manual of any small appliance.  When something goes wrong, the ice in your ice machine takes center stage.  By installing a water filter, you’re taking a positive step to keep that ice maker away from the spotlight.

  4. What Can You Expect from Scotsman Ice Countertop Ice Makers?

    Each variety of ice machine serves a definitive purpose and function.  The modular machines are the stand alone workhorses that you’ll find on hotel floors and in commercial kitchens.  Undercounter machines can be found in many bars, as they are perfect for bartenders to just grab a scoop of ice to put into their bar blenders.   Countertop ice machines bridge the gap between the front and back of the house.

  5. What’s wrong with this Crazy Ice Machine?!

    Ice machines are often taken for granted, right up until they go on the blink.  No ice can mean drinks aren’t served.  No ice can also mean that a hospital patient might not get that soothing relief for their tonsillectomy.  Ice machines need to be working at all times and any down time has to be minimized.   Waiting for a repair person to come out can be excruciating.  Companies like Manitowoc Ice know this and have come up with solutions to lower the down time and keep the ice flowing.
