Ice Machines For Different types of Ice

There are several types of ice shapes available, some easily chewable, some harder, which is good for other uses such as keeping cold food displayed safely.

When choosing your ice machine there are two important factors to keep in mind: which ice shape fits your needs and how much ice you will need per day.
