Hoshizaki equipment is made using sustainable, cutting-edge manufacturing methods. Features like CycleSaver and CleanCycle technologies extend the life of the equipment and give you a reliable performance. These features are why Hoshizaki ice makers remain some of the most trusted in the industry.
You can choose between five types of ice when considering Hoshizaki ice machines.
Crescent cubes are the most popular Hoshizaki ice cube style. These cubes have one mostly flat side and one curved side to keep them from sticking together and prevent clogging in dispensers.
Square cubes can be used for soda, tea, and cocktails. These are larger than crescent cubes, so they melt more slowly.
Top hat cubes, also known as gourmet cubes, are the largest option. They are commonly used in cocktails where a slow melt is most important.
Cubelet ice is also called Sonic ice. These small, chewable nuggets are popular among consumers for use in sodas, and are also ideal for blending frozen drinks.
Flaked ice is often used by grocery stores and produce stands. This ice is soft and can be molded around items such as seafood and produce.
What is infrared bin control?
The infrared bin control is an optional feature that prevents the bin from overflowing. A sensor uses an infrared beam to read how much ice is in the bin at all times, and when the ice reaches the specified height, the sensor shuts down the compressor and halts ice production.
What are air-, water-, and remote-cooled condensers?
The type of condenser determines how coolant is cooled down after it runs through the system. An air-cooled unit pulls in air from the surrounding area while expelling warmer air. Water-cooled condensers are usually only installed in buildings that have a recirculating water system to avoid excessive waste. Remote condensers also use air but are installed away from the ice maker, often on the roof. These units are preferred by many because they take some of the noise and heat out of the kitchen.
