Ice Makers

Ice is nice, especially in Australia where the temperatures can soar. With customers pining for cool, refreshing drinks, every eatery or bar needs to be able to produce high quality ice - and lots of it. Accordingly, commercial kitchens of all varieties need the right ice makers, in order to continually produce large volumes of great product.

The choice of which ice maker is best isn't so simple however, and there is a broad range of different shapes and styles of ice that a business needs to consider before making a purchase. Here at Comcater, we pride ourselves on our wide range of different ice production machines, with a solution available that is sure to suit each and every one of our customers.

The right ice machine
The first type of ice that typically comes to mind is the classic cube - a staple of bars and restaurants across Australia and throughout the world. There's far more to discover though, with flakes, pebbles and granules all providing something a little different, along with specialised products such as fast ice. Regardless of which type best suits your business, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind.

First of all, not all ice is created equal. It may be a relatively simple product, but there can be huge differences in quality between a high end unit and a cheaper one. For example, a better ice maker will be able to create harder cubes or pebbles, which in turn means each piece of ice takes much longer to melt and subsequently dilute a beverage. Similarly, a higher end ice machine will be more efficient in its use of water, which just like with commercial dishwashers is a huge talking point within the industry. Water usage doesn't just impact your bottom line in terms of costs, but can have a substantial environmental impact too, so it's well worth exploring the most efficient options possible.

Sustainability is important to the Comcater team, which is why we stock and supply ice makers from Brema - some of the most efficient on the market.

Ice makers from Brema
Brema have been producing ice makers since 1985, so have been specialists in the field for over 30 years now. The brand's products are designed specifically for the global market, not just Europe where they're produced. This is especially relevant down here in Australia, where the high temperatures can make life difficult for other brands. Fortunately, Brema machines perform exceptionally well, regardless of location, allowing staff to get on with more important business functions.

Another key point of difference that separates Brema from the pack is the wide variety of ice types that can be produced. If you need classic cubes, then of course that's an option, but there's no need to be limited in any way. For example, Brema's pebble-producing ice makers aren't just perfect for making cocktails, they're also more efficient than cubes. It would take two and a half litres of water to produce a kilogram of cubed ice, but only one litre for the same amount of pebbles.

The big thing to keep in mind when selecting an ice maker is what the specific needs of your business might be. While cubes still account for a massive portion of the industry, a bar, pub or club can create a slightly unique point of difference by taking a fresh approach.

Regardless of which style best suits your needs, Brema has an ice maker that can help. To find out more or see a unit in action, get in touch with Comcater today.
