Manitowoc Ice Machines for Small Spaces: The NEO™ Undercounter Ice Maker

Monday, October 7th, 2013

Operating a quality eatery in a small space comes with plenty of challenges… but fitting the proper restaurant equipment in shouldn’t have to be one of them. The necessary quality implements like Manitowoc ice machines, decent storage, ranges, and proper refrigeration can be the difference between subpar service and a successful operation.

Though Manitowoc ice machines’ new NEO™ Undercounter Ice Maker is small, it packs a big punch of productivity. Sporting a ton of Manitowoc technology, this bad boy fits snugly in the smallest of places, making easy for you to find a home for it in your restaurant. And once you do? Fresh ice every day, all the time, at a moment’s notice. The NEO™ Undercounter Ice Maker has a compact design, and lots of small features that put it above the rest. The NEO™ Undercounter Ice Maker is both easy to clean and convenient to use, since it has…

• Rounded corners of components make cleaning these Manitowoc ice machines much easier and more thorough.
• An ergonomically-designed ice scoop that can be attached to the Manitowoc ice machine’s left or right side—whichever is most efficient for your restaurant’s layout.
• A removable bin.
• An angled door for easy access and visibility.
• Relocated key components, now outside the food-zone for convenient servicing.
• Fingerprint-resistant external panels.

And because of its small design, it can fit in an unused corner or a low countertop, making the most of the space you’ve got.

If undercounter Manitowoc ice machines aren’t quite your style, opt for head-only dispensers, countertop ice makers, or dispensers. Check out ShortOrder’s ice machines for all kinds of restaurants.

Buying a Manitowoc ice machine means you’re getting the industry standard. Tough, dependable, efficient — those are all qualities of a Manitowoc ice machine. If you’re a restaurant owner, bar owner or commercial kitchen owner in need of ice for cooling, food prep or just drinks, a Manitowoc ice machine will help you get the job done.

Manitowoc Ice Machine: Where’d They Get That Name?

So you’re thinking about getting a Manitowoc ice machine — or maybe you already have one — and you have a pretty important question: Just how’d they get that name? Tough to get right on a first try, the  name is pronounced “man-ih-tah-wuk,” and it comes from the city in Wisconsin. The Manitowoc ice machine company is actually based in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, which is on Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Manitowoc River.

Started in 1964, the company has always been dedicated to putting out quality products that help reduce operating costs and emphasize food safety.

Manitowoc Ice Machine: Ideal for Commercial Kitchens

A Manitowoc ice machine is ideal for commercial kitchens, including restaurants and bars. When customers demand cold drinks to be ice cold, there’s no other option. A reliable Manitowoc ice machine is the way to go.

And the company realizes that not all restaurants, bars and commercial kitchens need the same Manitowoc ice machine. So that’s why they’ve made different models that produce different types and amounts of ice. For example, a bakery may only need a Manitowoc Ice Machine QM-45A. This unit produces 95 pounds of dice-sized ice cubes every 24 hours. On the other hand, a bar may need a Manitowoc ice machine that can produce much more ice. Something like the Manitowoc Ice Machine SD-1402A.
