Q:Will My Ice Maker Work Without a Water Filter?
Check the owner’s manual that comes with your ice maker to determine if it will still work without a water filter in place. However, a water filter is important part of your commercial ice maker. Restaurant and fast food kitchens need to serve clean, sanitary ice cubes. Studies have shown that contaminated water and dirty ice machines are just as likely as spoiled or undercooked food to give customers symptoms associated with food poisoning! What’s more, operating an ice maker without a water filter installed may void your manufacturer’s warranty. At Culinary Depot, we stock all the filters and cleaning chemicals you need to serve clean, cold ice in your drinks.
Q:Will My Ice Maker Work Without Water?
No. Ice machines need a supply of water to make ice cubes. Most ice machines are connected to a water line in your building’s plumbing system. However, if this isn’t possible in your kitchen, you may be able to connect your ice machine to a separate water tank which you fill manually instead. You can also fill the ice maker directly - however, you’ll need to do this often to get an adequate supply of ice.
Q:Does My Ice Maker Need a Drain?
Yes. A drain is required to remove ice melt and excess water from your ice maker. Most ice makers are installed to a gravity drain - a simple drain pipe like you’d find in your shower or bathtub. If a gravity drain isn’t available where you intend to install your ice maker, a drain pump can be installed instead.
Q:How Do I Clean my Ice Equipment?
To properly clean your ice equipment, first remove all ice from the machine and get the machine completely dry. Use a cleaning solution to wipe down all the interior surfaces and any removable components. Then, sanitize the machine to keep your customers safe. A regular deep-clean and santiizing of your ice equipment should be part of your seasonal deep cleaning process. This will prevent growth of bacteria and mold and ensure the best performance and quality from your ice equipment.
Q:Which Ice Equipment Should I Choose for My Kitchen?
For your restaurant or bar, an ice machine is essential. Ice makers can be installed as standalone appliances, installed under counters or sit on top of counters. Additionally, you can purchase ice bins to store large quantities of ice without melting. Ice dispensers are great for cafeterias, hospitals, buffets and fast food joints that want to allow customers to dispense their own ice. Combination ice and water makers are also available. Finally, if you want to make ice available to customers to-go, ice bagging machines and ice merchandiser freezers are perfect for corner stores, gas stations and supermarkets.
