Sizing your ice bin properly is one of the most important factors to consider when purchasing a new ice maker. You might opt for a bin that's too small, resulting in not enough ice available during a busy service. Or perhaps you feel like you're covering your bases by purchasing larger ice bin—think again. A larger ice bin with too little ice production is no more efficient than a smaller one. Why? When there's not enough ice in your bin it can start to melt, which not only makes a mess but it can also aid in bacteria growth and alter the flavor of your ice Not to mention that sizing up unnecessarily so can increase your energy costs too.
Before purchasing your ice bin first consider how many pounds of ice you'll need. Restaurants often require about 1.8 pounds of ice per guest, while a bar requires at least 3 pounds. Consider the total amount of ice you'll need for service as well as its frequency. Do you host a steady stream of visitors all day? Or do you just specialize in dinner? Understanding your ice needs before making any purchase can reduce your risk of wasted ice and unnecessary energy costs.
Choosing the right bin for your ice machine is just half of the process. Be sure you secure the right ice maker for your business.
