What are the different ice types?

ice types

Cubed ice is the standard ice option for beverages. Cubes come in half or full sized dice, but either option is great for use in all types of drinks.

Nugget ice also known as chewable ice or “Sonic ice,” was originally designed for healthcare use but has become a favorite in fast food, convenience stores, and many other businesses’ beverage service due to its unique consistency that allows it to be easily chewed.

Flake ice is perfect for displays in buffets and retail food cases. It can also be used for blended drinks.

Gourmet ice is used by high-end establishments to add a signature touch to any drink. Gourmet ice cubes have a bigger surface area, which can prevent the drink from losing its flavor while still being served at the right temperature.

Other Ice Machine Options

If a combo unit isn’t what you’re looking for, we have a variety of other options available. A modular unit allows for more customizability, so if that’s what you want, check out individual ice machine heads and ice storage bins/dispensers. We also have undercounter ice machines that provide smaller ice capacities for compact spaces.
