The Perfect Cube

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.

The Right Machine

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.

Clean, Clear Ice. Guaranteed.

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.

A Perfect Option When You Need More From Regular Ice

Shaped like a half-moon, crescent ice is a solid block that looks like an elongated cylinder with an almost square base. It is slightly thicker at its thickest point. These ice cubes are best made in a Hoshizaki ice machine. The machine creates large, clear, and hard crescent cubes like no other ice maker in the market hence, setting your drinks and business apart in the beverage industry.

Top Benefits of Crescent Ice

Here are the top benefits of using crescent ice in your beverages:

High Drink Displacement

It is crucial to understand that crescent ice is made differently. It’s not made on the usual grid-style evaporator plate. In fact, the Hoshizaki ice machines that we offer have slight bumps and no horizontal breaks. This reduces the flow of the water cascading over it while allowing the ice to form. Furthermore, it ensures:

The crescent ice cubes have no bridges, eliminating the need to break the ice in the bin to fit easily in the glass when serving drinks. Put simply, crescent ice cubes fit the glass beautifully, making beverages look fuller.

The cubes are smooth and consistent in size and shape, providing high drink displacement, which adds to your business profits as you save big on operational money as less drink is needed to fill the glass.

Superior Durability and Adaptability

Crescent ice is preferred among restaurants and bars for its excellent durability and adaptability. As it melts slowly, your staff doesn’t have to use the ice machine frequently to keep beverages cold. Besides this, crescent ice can be used for multiple purposes, like keeping cans and bottles cool and prepping food.
