Why choose a Hoshizaki Ice Machine?

Despite being a world leader in commercial ice machines, you can rely on the following:

Two-sided stainless steel evaporator: Smooth, durable surfaces makes twice as much ice per cycle. Increased energy efficiency producing consistent cube size - no adjustments, no clusters to break-up.

Individual crescent cube production: Impurities are flushed away each cycle leaving hard, crystal‐clear ice that lasts longer and has better displacement.

CycleSaverTM: HOSHIZAKI KM Cubers will produce more ice, using less energy and cycling half as many times resulting in longer life, less maintenance, and increased customer profits.

Simple controls: By eliminating the problem areas such as complicated electronic controls, plated surface evaporators, extrusions, and critical adjustments, Hoshizaki machines are considerably easier to operate.
