Manitowoc Ice Machines: There’s More!

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

The Manitowoc ice machines love continues over here at the What’s Cooking blog.  Last time out, we profiled a couple choice products, including the Manitowoc Ice Machine SD-0322A and the Manitowoc Ice Machine SD-1402A, the latter a real workhorse capable of pumping out 1,450 lbs of ice in a 24-hour period.  (This blogger, it might be pointed out, uses a lot of ice.  This blogger, however, cannot conceive of a way to use 1,450 lbs of dice-cut ice outside of a commercial kitchen environment.  But we’re trying.)

This time out, we’re going to pick out two other products, both of which are just as deserving of the praise we heaped on the aforementioned ice machines.  Why?  Easy!  It’s because we’re huge, unapologetic fans of the Manitowoc brand, and we just can’t stop writing about them!  It’s not hard to see why, either: With nearly uniform accolades from every corner of the restaurant world, accolades that manifest themselves in Best in Class nods by Food Service Equipment Supplies Magazine and Energy Star compliant designations from the U.S. government, Manitowoc products are simply a pleasure to write about.

And the first on the block is…

Manitowoc Ice Machine SY-0604A

The Manitowoc Ice Machine SY-0604A!  This handsome model is a highly reliable, easily serviceable, top-of-the-line product made by those restaurant equipment craftsmen up in Wisconsin.  There’s a thoughtfulness, an attention to user-friendly simplicity put forth in this model’s design, something that’s gratefully noted when it comes time to clean.  Here’s something else it’s got going for it in the user-friendliness department: a production rate of 650 lbs of half-dice ice cubes in a 24-hour period.  That’s a pretty hefty and satisfying clip, for those of you taking notes at home.

And if you are taking notes, get ready to turn the page, because…

Manitowoc Ice Machine SY-0324A

The  Manitowoc Ice Machine SY-0324A is our next topic!  A nifty little machine, the SY-0324A is capable of pumping out 325 lbs of ice per day, all while exhibiting all those wonderful characteristics we’ve come to know and appreciate from Manitowoc ice machines.

That’s all she wrote for today, folks!  See you next week.
