Whether your commercial kitchen is cooking for a country club, retirement home or university dining hall, there are Manitowoc ice machines to suit every need for volume and type of ice. There are many varieties of ice shape, size and style, including half dice or whole dice cube, nuggets and flake. Different ice machine models will produce different ice types, so it is recommended to consider the primary uses for ice in your kitchen before making this big purchase decision. For certain uses, certain ice types are preferred. If your establishment frequently arranges frozen or refrigerated items in a visible display to patrons, flake ice machines are a wise choice.
Flake ice produced by Manitowoc ice machines is ideal because it works great in display functions such as food buffets or chilling seafood, but it can also be scooped into beverages for basic cooling purposes. The machines are designed in a streamlined way that improves the water-to-ice ratio, resulting in better quality ice that won’t stick to surrounding items. The generous surface area of Manitowoc flakes means a longer-lasting chill.
One characteristic of flake ice is its soft and flexible texture, which is designed to not bruise or puncture the items placed upon it, such as produce or fish. Meanwhile, with Manitowoc ice machines you get flake ice that holds its shape, serving as a nest for displayed items. When selecting flake ice machines, there are also different unit size and production specifications to consider. Self-contained units will produce smaller ice of a finer grain. When you choose larger modular flake ice machines, you’ll yield a combination of smaller and larger flakes, which work together for a slower melt.
As we’ve mentioned many times both here and on our main restaurant equipment blog, Manitowoc ice machines are known in the industry for their reliability and ease of service. So whichever model you choose, be it the Manitowoc Ice Machine RF0399A or the high-producing Manitowoc Ice Machine RF0650/B-570, you’ll be satisfied with the choice for years to come.

Remember the Manitowoc Ice Machine SD-0302A sighting this blogger had over two and a half months ago? We certainly do! We won’t get into the thrill of the sighting all over again; after all, seminal as the event might have been, that was a while back, and while we’re huge Manitowoc ice machines fans, we’re not insane. Really!
Nevertheless, we will say that the Manitowoc Ice Machine SD-0302A is a top-notch product, and worth every pixel of digital ink we spill about it and then some. Why? Oh, let us count the ways:
1) First, it’s a Manitowoc product. Knowing this, you know that this product is going to be an industry leader for whatever class of ice machine it is. And you know what? You’re right! The SD-0302A was voted Best in Class by Food Service Equipment Supplies Magazine, which is no small shakes. Not enough accolades for your accolade-demanding self? Fair enough! We’ve also designated the product an Editor’s Choice, which means that we folks here at Short Order are particularly proud of this piece of restaurant equipment.
2) You get quite a bang for your buck with the Manitowoc SD-0302A. It produces a solid 325 lbs (or 147 kg) of ice in a 24-hour period. This prodigious production is not all you get with this ice machine, however. You also get excellent sanitation considerations, with patented cleaning and sanitization technology standard, including select components made with AlphaSan anti-microbial. What’s more, this Manitowoc product is thoughtfully designed. The water distribution tube is removable without the use of any tools, for example. It’s touches like that that let you know you’ve bought an excellent product.
3) The warranty is an excellent one, and is truly tough to beat. In addition to 5-year parts-and-labor coverage on the ice machine evaporator, there is also a 5-year parts and 3-year labor coverage on the compressor and a 3-year parts-and-labor coverage for the rest of the machine.

Manitowoc ice machines hold a special place in our hearts, as you all likely know, so imagine the thrill this blogger got when he saw a real-life Manitowoc Ice Machine SD-0302A in a Mexican restaurant last weekend! That’s right. We were sat at a table stuck near the kitchen, which was less than ideal, but we’re not big complainers. Over a plate of breakfast tacos (migas and bean and cheese at our favorite morning spot, thank you very much), we looked up and saw it: the SD-0302A in all its gleaming, stainless steel glory. This blogger, all aflutter, nudged his breakfast partner-in-crime, and proudly intoned, “That machine is capable of making 325 pounds of full-dice ice cubes in a 24-hour period.” Needless to say, she was floored.
We’ll say it: the SD-0302A sighting was a Moment. If you ever see this masterful machine in the wild, you’ll likely experience one too.
Or not. But it was kinda cool to see one.
