It’s no mystery that in the world of undercounter ice machines, the ICEU150 from Ice-O-Matic is one of the most popular. As one of the leading producers of commercial undercounter ice machines, Ice-O-Matic has put every bit of their focus into creating an undercounter ice machine that does what Ice-O-Matic does best: Make a great amount of ice. Ice-O-Matic ice machines outperform similar ice machines in the same class, creating the most ice when air and water temperatures are ideal. For their price, these ice machines make the most amount of ice per dollar spent, which is one of the main reasons for their popularity among ice machine owners.
One of the reasons Ice-O-Matic’s ICEU150 remains in the good graces of consumers is its increased ice production and its versatility. In terms of output, the ICEU150 can produce up to 174 pounds of ice per day. For an undercounter, this is a great amount of ice. As this ice machine measures only 24 inches wide –the slimmest commercial undercounter ice machine to date – and it can be placed almost anywhere. Its size and output have made this ice machine popular for commercial use, under-bar areas, and also for private residences and clubs. The ICEU150 produces the greatest amount of ice for its size, and it can also be used in the home if desired.
Ice-O-Matic’s ICEU150 can be either air-cooled or water-cooled. This refers to the way in which the condenser is cooled- by means of air or water. Air-cooled ice machines tend to be more sensitive to air and water changes around them, and realize a greater drop in production when temperatures increase. Water-cooled ice machines tend to be more consistent, but they use a great amount of water to keep the condenser cool. In the case of the ICEU150, it uses over 150 gallons of water to cool the condenser for every 100 pounds of ice created. Because of this, the water cooled ICEU150 is not ENERGY STAR qualified, while the air-cooled ICEU150 is ENERGY STAR approved.
Those who are interested in the ICEU150 can choose the cube style they desire as well. The ICEU150 can produce either full cubes or half cubes, both of which are perfect for use in beverages. Half cubes tend to displace more liquid, but full cubes generally last longer, and melt more slowly in drinks. Ice-O-Matic ice machines are also covered by the longest warranty in the industry, assuring quality operation of your appliance for years to come.
In a popularity contest Ice-O-Matic’s ICEU150 takes the blue ribbon, captures the gold medal, and wins first place. If you know Ice-O-Matic, it should come as no surprise that this ice machine remains one the most desirable for both commercial and residential use. If you need great ice output from your undercounter ice machine, few do it better than Ice-O-Matic’s ICEU150.
