Manitowoc Ice, Inc. has long been a leader in commercial ice machines and other restaurant equipment. For years Manitowoc has worked to ensure your beverage tastes as it should—free from what we call "ice funk."

Not only does Manitowoc continue to push for better ice quality, but the company consistently meets demanding criteria for sanitation.
At Tundra Restaurant Supply, you'll find a variety of Manitowoc commercial ice machines. From under ice machines, to modular units and hotel ice machines (the self-service ice machine great for hotels, break rooms and more), Manitowoc features a variety of sizes that are NSF and Energy Star® certified. Plus, did you know that with Manitowoc ice machines you can clean your machine with ice in the bin? You can save hundreds on cleaning alone!
The key difference between commercial ice machines and ice makers found in your home is the way ice is made. In a commercial ice machine, ice is made over an evaporator. These heavy duty ice machines are designed for making ice in bulk all day long, which if you consider service (breakfast, lunch and dinner) plus bar and kitchen needs...you're looking at a lot of ice. Commercial ice machines from Manitowoc meet stringent food safety guidelines and use environmentally friendly non-CFC refrigerants all while improving your energy bills.
When it comes to your ice machine, keeping a cleaning routine is key for a long lasting machine; this includes both cleaning the unit itself (like the ice machine bin) and regularly changing your water filter. Water filters remove harmful contaminants from the water, which includes bacteria and minerals that affect the taste and smell of your beverages. Poor water filtration will not only affect your diner's experience, but it can do some irreparable harm to your machine. Kitchen equipment like coffee machines, ice machines and steam tables use water regularly in their operation, and over time the minerals found in water (like calcium) will building in the tubing and around the heating elements. When this happens, your best case scenario is a service call. Worst case? A new ice machine.
Manitowoc sells water filters and other restaurant equipment parts and hardware to help you keep your commercial equipment running for a long time. Some Manitowoc parts you may be looking for include a dump valve, thickness probe, float valve, magnetic bin switch and more.
