Self-contained ice machines are ice makers with internal storage. These units can be undercounter, built-in or freestanding. The benefits to these self-contained ice machines are their compact size, internal storage, and high output. These are a major step up from your freezer ice in production and quality. These are great for any small restaurant, bar, coffee-bar, small office or home.
Please make sure to pair your machine with the appropriate water filter and pump (if needed) on their respective sections.
Ice Maker vs Freezer Ice: True ice makers are not traditional freezers. Ice makers produce ice and store ice in the bin for use, but does not keep the ice frozen. The stored ice is designed to melt over time allowing fresh ice to be produced. Your ice remains fresh and clear ready for use.
