Flake Ice

Soft. Malleable. Perfect for Presentation.


Ice isn’t just for drinks. Many Easy Ice customers need ice for presentations and salad bars as well. Both Hoshizaki and Manitowoc offer flake ice machines that produce soft, moldable ice that can be formed to create dazzling presentations or hold bottles and cans in place.

Create Dazzling Presentations


Flake ice is soft and small with roughly a 70% ice to water ratio which allows it to stick together. Businesses everywhere use this functional ice style for a multitude of reasons.

Many of our customers in the seafood industry use flake ice to create elaborate seafood presentations that showcase their offerings and amaze guests. Flake ice makers are a must have for oyster bars. Not only does flake ice keep oysters cool but also holds them in place on a tray.

Some of our customers in the bar and nightclub industry get creative and use flake ice to hold bottles and cans in place so guests can see a selection of drinks.


Great for Specialty Drinks


For customers who prefer crushed ice for their drinks, flake ice is a great choice for a Mai Tai or margarita. Its porous structure allows it to absorb liquids and retain flavor.


A Reliable Ice Supply


Both Manitowoc and Hoshizaki flake ice machines use an easy to service auger design which delivers a steady flow of ice. Combined with Easy Ice’s routine maintenance, we keep auger systems running smoothly and prolong the overall life of flake ice makers.
