Smart Ice with the Manitowoc NEO

Manitowoc NEO Ice Machine

Running out of ice because the ice maker isn't performing like it should is a good way to waste money and lose customers. There is absolutely nothing cool about crawling around on the floor of your restaurant, with a bag of tools in tow, because the ice machine has gone on the blink again. Avoid the no-ice shuffle with the Manitowoc NEO ice machines, which are sure to keep you calm, cool, and collected through any situation thrown your way.

Manitowoc’s NEO ice machine comes equipped with a slew of options and conveniences. Let’s take a look.

Performance to Meet Demand

The NEO delivers from 130 to 225 pounds of ice per 24 hours, which is up to 40 pounds more per day than its predecessor machines in the Q series. All that comes in a space-saving 26-inch-wide undercounter design. That compact design coupled with its production capacity makes the NEO the industry frontrunner in performance.Manitowoc NEO Ice Maker

For those searching for a machine that can actually communicate with you, it’s here. The NEO ice machine has a handy, LED-lit panel to provide feedback at a moment’s glance. The panel includes four indicator buttons including power, delay, cleaning, bin full, and service. The unique delay option allows the operator to delay ice production for 4, 12, or 24 hours allowing for lower energy and water consumption. The service button takes all the guessing out by simply illuminating when routine maintenance is necessary. This machine is most definitely made with you in mind.

When running a business, convenience is certainly a good friend. The NEO offers fingerprint-resistant exterior panels, a removable ice bin for easy access to internal components, thumbscrew component access (no tools required), and even a new hygiene-focused scoop to affix to the machine’s right or left, whichever is more convenient for you. In the midst of a busy work day, it’s good to know someone else provided a few conveniences just for you. gvhk

With constant traffic, the importance of cleanliness can’t be stressed enough. But more importantly, the importance of time may be an even greater factor. The Manitowoc NEO ice machine is built with both of these very important issues in mind. The machine is equipped with a removable ice bin and pop-out air filter- again, no tools required - that can be simply cleansed in the dishwasher. These features make quick and clean an achievable reality.

There is a lot of talk around energy efficiency these days but let’s talk about energy savings. The Manitowoc NEO undercounter ice machine offers a 10% reduction in energy and a 25% reduction in water consumption. Those are savings that will quickly add up. This ENERGY STAR model outperforms in energy conservation more than ever before.

Routine maintenance shouldn’t take up half your day or require redecorating your workspace to create enough room. With the NEO ice machine forward sliding bin, simply slide the exterior shell forward to access internal mechanisms for quick and easy maintenance. Even better, NEO takes the guessing out of when to provide service and notifies you by illuminating the exterior service button.
