BASIC, RELIABLE, LOW PROFILE MODULAR ICE MAKER
This machine is great for: Construction and mining sites, hospitals, nursing homes, hotels and clubs, nightclubs, pubs, sporting facilities, restaurants, cafes, ice bagging, convenience stores, fast food chains and supermarkets. This machine can be used for any application.
Same compact height as the Manitowoc M-Series 0420 , the Manitowoc M-Series 0500 delivers 226kg/day of ice per day thanks to its slightly wider profile. This tried and true ice machine has been engineered to do its thing autonomously so that in the meantime, you can do your thing. Quality and simplicity are the main ingredients of the M-Series 0500: the result is an affordable, no-nonsense unit that’s easy to operate and to clean. Only three controls: On, Off, Clean. Only two screws and a lift-off door to access the foodzone and the evaporator; the inside parts are removable and white plastics indicate surfaces that require cleaning. A great extra, the CleanAir packs slow down bacteria and fungi spawning for a sanitary foodzone in between cleans. Did we mention that this modular ice machine is standard width and only 546mm tall? That way you won’t have to compromise on space in your already chock-a-block commercial kitchen. Basic? Yes, although it doesn’t drink Starbucks lattes nor does it have an Instagram account for its dog. But also quality and reliable, with a promise of no gimmicks used in its assembly whatsoever.
