Ice machines made for commercial usage tend to
Whatever kind of food or drinks business you are managing space is forever at a premium, and whether a machine will be able to slot into somewhere inconspicuously and perform its work without becoming an obstacle is one of the more important considerations that as the purchaser you will need to reflect upon before committing to a particular model.
Another major consideration is of naturally speed. If you manage a busy operation in which ice is constantly being used you will need to ensure that supply is able to keep pace with demand. When purchasing an ice machine you might first consider it prudent to establish just what a machine is capable of producing within a given frame, including at the busiest and most demanding times. Conversely if the operation you run is sufficiently small as not to justify constant, heavy production you may prefer to opt for a slower and more economical model. Overproduction, after all, wastes valuable energy whilst working up costs that you need not incur.
