Hoshizaki is claiming to have produced the world’s largest machine-made ice cubes, thanks to its IM-65NE-LM
Measuring a massive 48 x 48 x 58mm, the cubes make a dramatic statement in any drink served in any glass large enough to accommodate them – typically a highball or rocks glass.
The IM-65NE-LM is designed with hygiene as a priority and utilises a closed cell ice making system that has an automatic rinse and flush cycle. This means that, after every new batch of ice, the water reservoir will drain, rinse and then refill with fresh water.
Importantly, each cube is made individually by a dedicated jet spray to ensure the highest possible ice quality.
The storage bin has high density foam injected insulation to slow down the ice melting, while a gasket on the insulated door ensures the tightest possible fit to prevent particles entering the storage bin that could contaminate the ice.
The IM-65NE-LM produces approximately 40 kgs ice per 24 hours and has a storage capacity of 26 kgs.
