This post is a continuation of last week’s post where The Back Burner features a restaurant equipment manufacturer every week. Up this week: Hoshizaki ice machines.
Over 60 years, Hoshizaki has built a reputation across the globe for quality, design, and performance. Since 1986, Hoshizaki’s plant in Peachtree City, GA has supplied the U.S. market with domestically produced ice makers and bins. As one of the largest producers of commercial ice machines worldwide, Hoshizaki understands that quality, durability, and performance are the keystones to customer satisfaction.
Food service industry professionals recognize Hoshizaki for their commitment to these prinicipals by buying Hoshi ice machines again and again, and they have selected the company for various awards, including “Best In Class” in FE&S Magazine.
Cuber ice machines are the standard in food service. Hoshi builds a variety of capacities, with optional stackable bins and air, water, or remote condenser cooled.
Nugget ice machines are a consumer favorite because the porous ice is chewable and it soaks up the flavors of the beverage. Hoshi makes an air, water, and remote condenser cooled version of their nugget ice machine.
Flake ice machines make ice perfect for salad bars and fresh fish or meat displays. You can also get air, water, and remote condenser cooled versions of this flaker ice machine.
As with all ice machines, you should have a water filtration system to prevent breakdowns and reduce maintenance. Hoshizaki makes their own water filter systems for their ice machines. Usually, for warranty reasons, it’s best to use the water filter system recommended by the manufacturer, which of course is the one they make.
