Cubelet Ice

Soft and chewable nugget ice.


A hard, solid cube isn’t always the best option for all businesses. Many industries prefer a soft, chewable ice cube to meet their business needs. Cubelet ice, otherwise known as ‘nugget ice’, is popular with hospitals, schools, or restaurants looking for a different, non-traditional type of ice cube that serves many purposes.

A Healthy Choice


Cubelet ice comes in different sizes depending on the machine model ranging from 3/8” to ½” in width and length. It’s a small, soft cube that is easy to chew, making it an excellent choice for patients who need to hydrate but have a hard time swallowing liquid. Its texture also lends itself well in school settings where kids can enjoy chewing on ice without hurting their teeth.


Perfect for Drinks


Beyond the special uses of Cubelet ice, many bar and restaurant customers love this ice style for its porous nature. Cubelet ice absorbs liquids, retaining the flavor of drinks and is particularly ideal with sugary beverages like margaritas and slushes.

Cubelet ice is also malleable enough to mold and hold its shape, making it usable for elaborate seafood and salad bar presentations.


A Reliable Supply of Chewable Ice


Both Manitowoc and Hoshizaki cubelet and nugget ice machines use an easy to service auger design that produces high-quality ice. Combined with our routine maintenance, we keep auger systems running smoothly and prolong the overall life of the machine.
