Ice Machines in School
An ice machine is one of the most important equipment in any restaurant or commercial kitchen. Whether it be for chilling beverages, making smoothies and frozen drinks, packing around food, or even soothing employees’ wounds and burns in case of accidents. Ice serves multiple purposes not only in food service establishment but also for offices or even schools. Of all places, Ice machines have found themselves over the years a place in schools, from primary schools to colleges and universities.
Size and Capacity needed
Schools are an example of a non-restaurant commercial kitchen that would require an ice machines. However, purchasing this equipment for schools can be very tricky, as its needs are often very different from those of a restaurant. The main thing to consider when buying an ice machine in school is, just like any other business, the size and the capacity of your school. For bigger schools will probably require high capacity ice machines to meet the demand for the day, particularly for school cafeterias that serves soft drinks or other beverages that requires the service of an ice. Larger schools with limited kitchen floor space, bigger capacity equipment can be practicable to produce large amount of ice within a small area. A 90 kg Ice Cube Maker allows you to double your ice production without taking up additional space in your kitchen. If existing kitchen space is already too crowded to add a new ice machine, 25kg Compact Ice Maker is a great solution for keeping your school kitchen organized while producing sufficient ice supply.
Type of Usage
The next thing to consider is where and how your ice will be used in your school. Will it be limited only to the kitchen, or are there any other uses for the ice? For most applications, full or half cube ice is typically the most versatile among the other type. However, if the budget allows for multiple ice machines, having many different types of ice ready in your kitchen, may end up being be useful in different situation. For example, Flake Ice Maker is fantastic when used to soothe pulled muscles, bruises or burns obtained by student athletes during sports events or other activities, by placing a packed ice closely around the injuries. Flake ice is also perfect for making smoothies, snow cones, and frozen beverages, making it as a useful addition if your school have a concessions stand.
In addition to your kitchen and concessions stand, staff and faculty break rooms are another ideal location to put your machine. Several ice machine companies offer some small, Compact Ice Cube Maker that are designed for residential and office use, and would be the perfect equipment to any school’s break room.
Even if your school doesn’t serve any soft drinks or beverages that require ice, there are still a lot of reasons to set up your establishment with the convenience and reliability of a commercial ice maker.
