Hoshizaki’s signature crescent ice, also called the KM Cube, is a hard, individual cube with a unique crescent shape. Crescent ice is clear and slow melting, which maintains the taste of soft drinks, cocktails, and high-end scotches and whiskeys. The ice cube’s flat, crescent shape allows more cubes to fit in a glass, making drinks look fuller. The cube’s design also prevents liquids from splashing out of a container when poured. Crescent ice is an excellent choice for prepping food or keeping bottles and cans cool in beer troughs.
Across a wide spectrum of industries, bar owners, restaurant managers, and facilities managers choose crescent ice for its adaptability and durability. Slower melting ice also means your employees make fewer trips to the ice machine, increasing productivity.
Hoshizaki ice makers come in a wide range of sizes to fit any business, large or small. Laicemachine carries Hoshizaki crescent ice machines that produce as little as 260 lbs or as much as 1900 lbs of ice over a 24-hour period.
The KM evaporator freezes the cleanest water and rinses out many minerals and impurities, guaranteeing clear ice every time. KM evaporators also form each ice cube individually, preventing crescent cubes from clumping together. Hoshizaki KM evaporators are made of stainless-steel, so they stand up to acid-based cleaners.
