Scotsman Ice Makers Help Reduce Cross Contamination

Now more than ever, maintaining a safe ice supply is paramount. According to the FDA, ice is a food, so you want to protect it the same way you would any food item.

Despite being rare, ice can carry germs for a short time. However, like any high-use appliance, an ice maker can produce dirty ice if the machine has been contaminated – and on to the next user.

While ice safety practices are the best way to limit accidental contamination, Scotsman ice machines come with several features to keep customers and employees safe.

Scotsman ice machines come with AgION™ antimicrobial compounds molded directly into key components. This technology helps to inhibit the growth of pathogens, helping to keep your ice supply safer.

Our lineup of Scotsman touchless ice dispensers take safety a step further. Models like the Scotsman Meridian HID312A-1 air cooled touchless ice dispenser, comes with hands-free ice dispenser technology. Users simply place drinkware underneath the ice chute and the ice is automatically dispensed. Users never have to touch the surface of the ice machine to dispense ice. Ice machines stay clean and pose less of a risk for transmitting harmful pathogens.

Scotsman Ice Makers Are Easy to Service and Clean

Many Scotsman ice machines, including our Scotsman Meridian ice dispensers, come with a durable stainless-steel exterior. Stainless-steel is easy to clean and protects against the rigors of busy workplaces.

Scotsman ice machines – as well as their countertop ice dispensers, are easily accessible from the front of the machine. This makes service quick and easy for ice machine technicians and users.

Preventive maintenance and cleaning are a necessity if you want to avoid an expensive repair or a dirty ice machine. Well-maintained equipment runs significantly better than ice equipment that doesn’t receive routine service.

Professional cleaning helps to rid your machine of any mold or scale that may have formed. Not only can this lead to dirty ice, but scale can lead to big repair costs if it damages any of the ice machine’s components.

Preventive maintenance and cleaning are so important to keeping ice machine running smoothly, that we include them in all of our ice machine subscription bundles. Ideally, ice machines should receive at least two maintenance and cleaning visits a year.

Many ice machine service companies change service by the hour, so an easily accessible ice machine speeds up service time and leads to smaller service costs.

An easily accessible ice machine is also easier to clean. Technicians can clean machines more thoroughly, leading to cleaner ice and better performance.
