The first step towards learning Commercial Ice Machines is to learn the kinds of ice production that is possible. Would you believe that the technician onsite is the most influential individual when it comes time to recommend new equipment? The technician is almost always the trusted advisor for business owners since they are perceived to have seen the best and the worst. Ice production is equally important as learning about the intricacies of the mechanical workings.

What kinds of ice are commonly used in hospitality and service businesses?

The most common type of ice used in hospitality and service businesses is the cube or cubed ice. Cubed ice is excellent for garnishing drinks, chilling food, and providing relief from the heat. This type of ice is usually made with a commercial ice machine which utilizes water filters to create clear, fresh-tasting cubes that are easily stored and served.

Flake or nugget ice is also a popular type of ice used in hospitality and service businesses. This type of ice is produced by an ice machine that crushes larger cubes into smaller pieces, making tiny flakes perfect for blending drinks, chilling salads and other food items or providing cold therapy for first aid. Also, flake ice is easier to chew than cube ice, so it is a great choice for hospitality businesses that serve soft drinks or other beverages.

Finally, crushed ice is another type that can be used in the hospitality and service industries. Crushed ice is produced by an industrial-grade machine that grinds large cubes into small pieces of ice. This type of ice is ideal for cooling drinks, adding texture to cocktails and other beverages, and making slushies. Crushed ice can also provide quick relief from the heat in first-aid situations.

No matter what kind of ice is needed in the business, commercial ice machines are essential to the hospitality industry. Did you know that the onsite ice machine often does not produce the correct or optimal kind of ice needed by the business?

What kinds of ice are needed for beverage service

Cube ice is ideal for adding to beverages and providing cooling relief from the heat in first-aid situations. Cubed ice is the most commonly used for water and soft drink service. Flake or nugget ice can also be used for these applications, as it provides a softer texture than cube ice and makes drinks more refreshing. Crushed ice is the best choice for slushies and other beverages requiring a smoother texture. Crushed ice offers a uniform coldness that is perfect for creating an icy beverage.

Premium Ice

As the popularity of craft cocktails continues to grow, so does the demand for premium ice. Unlike the cubed or crushed ice typically used in mixed drinks, premium ice is made from pure water and has a more consistent shape and size. This type of ice can be used to cool drinks without diluting them, making it the perfect choice for bartenders who want to create cocktails with high precision and consistency.

Premium ice can be produced in several ways, but the most common method is to use an industrial-grade machine that grinds large cubes into small pieces of ice. This type of machine creates a much finer texture than traditional cube or crushed ice machines, resulting in smaller pieces of premium ice ideal for cooling drinks without affecting their flavor or potency. Also, premium ice is made from pure water and requires high-end water filtration, so it doesn’t contain any impurities or contaminants that could spoil the drink or cause it to taste bad.

Note: This course, Commercial ice products, does not discuss water filtration and treatment. These topics are discussed later in the Professional Ice Machine Technician program.

Gain an understanding of ice’s intended uses (and applications) and the machinery that creates it. Persons involved in sales, technical support, and technicians benefit from this introductory course.
