Hoshizaki has introduced the industry’s first hydrocarbon crescent ice maker.
The KMD-210AB-HC means that environmentally-conscious operators can now source a greener ice machine that produces crescent-shaped ice.
Simon Frost, director of Hoshizaki UK and Ireland, said: “With zero ozone depleting potential (ODP), negligible global warming potential (GWP), and outstanding efficiency, the brand-new KMD-210AB-HC well and truly excels when it comes to sustainability.
“This unique design allows for a high quantity of ice to be produced in approximately half as many cycles as similar competitor models, thus allowing operators to make significant energy savings – benefits which will particularly appeal to large, fast selling establishments such as nightclubs, stadiums, entertainment venues and hotels.”
Crystal-clear crescent ice makes for an aesthetic addition to any drink and its curved shape allows for a splash-free serving.
The ice structure is particularly ideal for operators that wish to slot bottles into filled champagne buckets and can be blended more easily than a standard square cube.
Meanwhile, the only element of manual cleaning that needs to be done with the KMD-210AB-HC is the cleaning of the machines air filters. The rest is taken care of by the unit’s double flushing system with built-in self-cleaning.
The price of the KMD-210AB-HC starts from £4720 plus VAT.
