Commercial ice storage bins are a necessary requirement to make the most out of your commercial kitchen ice maker and ensure there is always crushed or flaked ice ready to go! An ice storage bin comes with specially insulated walls to protect the unit from overheating and creating an excess of melting ice. Insulated storage solutions to keep ice chilled and usable for longer are both cost saving as they reduce waste, but environmentally friendly also for the same reason. With the ice maker placed on top, the storage bin comes with a liftable lid to make the bin easily accessible for busy restaurant or catering staff looking to refill their ice buckets quickly. Likewise, chefs looking to cool ingredients or bartenders wanting to serve chilled wines, beers and cocktails, all require instant access to ice cold flakes or cubes.
Ice makers were first invented in the middle of the 20th century. With rapid developments in refrigeration technology, a refrigerant liquid was able to be passed through metal tubing within the interior of a unit, creating a significantly chilled temperature with which to preserve foods or make ice. Storage bins for ice can be especially useful in a range of food service or hospitality locations such as restaurants, cafes, hotels, event venues, petrol stations, hospitals, as well as music and sports arenas. Ice is a highly desirable addition to the dining experience for consumers, helping diners experience a meal with one another that they would not be able to produce alone at home. Commercial kitchen ice storage bins hold high volumes of ice at super chilled temperatures to serve large numbers of customers ice at one go and over extended periods of time.
