Slushie Machine - Frozen Drink Machines

Frozen drink machines – sometimes referred to as slushy machines, slushie machines, slushy makers, and other various spellings – bring a fun visual aspect to your establishment, along with the capacity to serve exciting frozen drinks. Merchandising options typically consist of one or more clear hoppers that hold the drink and sit front-of-house for customers to see the churning, slushy goodness. Other options produce large quantities of frozen drink without the display aspect in back-of-house use. Both types have a cooling system, dispenser, and some sort of churning device to keep the product from freezing completely. We'll go over KaTom's selection of slush machines below and answer some common questions. More

Common Questions About Slushie Machines

Should I get a front-of-house or back-of-house frozen drink machine?

Front-of-house slushy makers are the kind you might see in a convenience store, stirring tasty frozen concoctions where customers can see them. The visibility of this type promotes sales since the stirring motion and bright colors attract the eye, drawing attention to the drinks. For some establishments, this can be a big money-maker, but for others, the brightness and noise might detract from a carefully maintained ambiance. For restaurants that want to serve frozen cocktails, back-of-house units give you a place to keep frozen drinks ready to serve without disrupting the atmosphere. Back-of-house units can also achieve higher production volumes than most clear hopper units.

Can all slushy machines freeze alcoholic drinks?

Not all frozen drink makers can reach temperatures low enough to freeze alcohol. The freezing point of pure ethanol is incredibly low at about -173 degrees Fahrenheit. Drinkable alcohol is not pure ethanol and doesn't require such frigid temperatures, but alcoholic drinks still require significant refrigeration before they freeze. For each individual drink, the freezing point varies based on what else is in it. Because they have low amounts of alcohol, beer and wine will freeze a little below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, but stronger drinks can require temperatures as low as -17 degrees Fahrenheit. Some of the machines KaTom offers can reach temperatures low enough to make frozen cocktails, but not all. If you'll be making alcoholic drinks in your machine, ensure it is rated to freeze them.

Can I serve non-frozen drinks in slushie machines?

Some of the machines KaTom offers provide more than one function, featuring temperature regulation options that enable you to serve frozen drinks or chilled beverages with the same machine, depending on your needs. However, not all of the models we offer have that capability. Consider what drinks you plan on serving before purchasing a slushie machine to ensure the model you purchase can fulfill all your needs.

How many hoppers should my machine have?

Machines with multiple hoppers – or beverage compartments – provide operators with an eye-catching merchandising opportunity, as well as an expanded menu. Complementing colors spinning side-by-side are an appealing advertisement for the drinks you offer, and multiple hoppers mean multiple flavor options. However, more hoppers also mean more space is taken up by the machine. Balance the space required against the possible drinks you can offer when deciding how many hoppers you want.

Where can I put a slushie maker?

These slush machines require an open space to vent the heated exhaust from their refrigeration systems. Not all of the machines vent the same direction, but they will all need space to vent. Their exhaust ports cannot be put against a wall, so when you are purchasing a machine, ensure your expected location has sufficient space on whichever side your machine will be venting.
