Kitchen equipment manufacturer Hoshizaki has launched the Hoshizaki IM-65NE-Q, an ice machine that creates balls rather than cubes. 

Product details:

The Hoshizaki IM-65NE-Q is a 26kg per day capacity machine with 17kgs of storage. The machine is designed to be hygienic and uses a closed cell ice making system with an automatic rinse and flush cycle. After every new batch of ice the water reservoir drains, rinses and refills with fresh water.

Each ice ball is made individually by a jet spray to get high ice quality. The storage bin has high density foam injected insulation to slow down the ice melting, while a gasket on the insulated door prevents particles entering the storage bin that could contaminate the ice.

USP:

Apart from the obvious novelty factor, ball ice has some advantages over cubes:

  • It makes a visual statement – especially in hi-ball glasses
  • It melts even more slowly than Hoshizaki’s slow melting cube ice
  • Its rounded surface prevents sticking

Availability:

For further information call 0845 456 0585, or email: hxfnyrf@ubfuvmnxv.pb.hx

Why you should buy it:

Bartenders can use the ice balls to give their drinks a special edge and the machine has been designed for ease of use.
