Flaked vs. Cubed Ice

I posted previously that One Fat Frog Restaurant Equipment recently got in a used Hoshizaki 800lb flaked ice machine, but what’s the big deal with flaked ice? What are the pros and cons of flaked and cubed ice? You should base your ice machine preference based on the needs at your location.

Cubed ice is the most common style used for beverages. Because of its density, it melts slower than flaked ice and fills the glass more through displacement. Filling the glass more will save you money in the long run.

Flaked ice is commonly used to chill salad bars, sushi bars, buffets, etc. and not commonly used for beverages. It’s also used for packing fresh food displays with seafood and chicken.

Large food chains hire entire teams of people to figure out the most economic ice to use for their beverages, but if you’re a mom and pop restaurant, head into One Fat Frog Restaurant Equipment. We’d be happy to sit down with you and figure out the perfect ice machine for your location.
