When it comes to energy efficiency and reliability, Manitowoc ice makers are known to lead the market in both categories. And Manitowoc undercounter ice machine models are no exception.
Bar and restaurant employees particularly appreciate how easy it is to quickly access needed ice with Manitowoc’s NEO line of undercounter ice makers.
Ice-Masters is proud to offer the NEO line by Manitowoc through our all-inclusive rental program. Our customers get access to these high quality ice machines, plus deep cleaning, maintenance, and any necessary repairs all for one low monthly payment.
Learn more about the Manitowoc NEO ice maker below to determine if it would be a great fit for your establishment and your customers.
The Convenience Factor of Manitowoc NEO Undercounter Ice Machines
Why are undercounter ice makers an ideal choice in bars, restaurants, cafes and other eateries? The convenience of having ice right at hand can’t be beat! Bartenders, baristas and other staff can easily get the ice they need and get back to serving customers. This is far more efficient than having to refill bar wells and wait stations.
Manitowoc undercounter ice makers ensure the process is as easy as possible with a slanted bin door that enables employees to grab ice from a standing position (instead of having to kneel down).
The Performance Factor of Manitowoc Undercounter Ice Machines
Our ice machine experts vouch for the dependability of Manitowoc NEO ice makers, specifically Manitowoc NXT indigo ice makers. Like other ice makers from this brand, the NEO line also surpasses other options in reliability and durability.
As far as production, expect the Manitowoc NEO UDF0310A ice maker to deliver up to 286 pounds of dice ice per day. Dice ice, or traditional square shape, is one of Manitowoc’s most popular types of ice and looks great in soft drinks and craft cocktails.
Some features that make Manitowoc one of the best commercial ice makers include a vertical plate design for the evaporator and front-to-front ventilation. The evaporator’s design helps ensure a Manitowoc ice machine will use the cleanest water for cubes and that minerals will be drained away, making only clear and attractive cubes. The ventilation system keeps heat away from the ice machine. This is important because a hot machine can’t produce at full capacity.
Another feature that customers love is the Manitowoc NEO undercounter ice maker display, which provides vital performance information, including electrical information and details like when the bin is full. The display also comes in handy for reducing utility costs at times when ice isn’t needed, such as after hours or during holidays.
The Sanitation Factor of Manitowoc Undercounter Ice Makers
Manitowoc NEO ice machines cleaning is simplified by a self-clean feature that keeps ice safe and sanitary. Users can start the cleaning mode at the push of a button from the front display.
Of course, periodic professional cleaning is still important for eliminating mold or slime growth inside the bin or the ice machine itself.
While this cleaning mode will help keep your ice supply safe, professional cleaning is still needed to eliminate mold or slime growth from in the ice bin or throughout the machine. For our rental customers, we handle scheduling and performing this deep cleaning for free.
You can keep your machine in tip-top shape by making sure employees clean the ice machine air filters at least every two weeks. Manitowoc NEO ice makers make this easy too. Employees can easily slide out filters, wipe them down, and replace them in a few minutes.
Lastly, with maximum sanitation front of mind, Manitowoc designed the NEO-series ice machines with an easily accessible ice scoop holder built directly into the bin. This decreases the chance of accidental ice contamination.
The Ease of Servicing Manitowoc Undercounter Ice Machines
Another reason Manitowoc is an ice maker industry leader is because they build their machines to be easy to service. One way they do this is by designing them with easy front access to the vital machine components.
For Manitowoc NEO undercounter ice makers, this means the removable bin can be pulled out of the way to reveal the machine’s internal components.
If the unit breaks down for whatever reason, ice machine technicians can fix it quickly, so your employees can get back to serving iced beverages to your customers. If you own your Manitowoc NEO undercounter ice, the time and money it takes to fix should be reduced due to its accessibility.
However, if you choose a Manitowoc ice maker lease from Ice-Masters, machine repairs are included in your low monthly cost. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
