The Hoshizaki KM machines produce clear, crescent shaped ice. The unique shape of ice is extremely versatile and extends from the splash-free serving of post mix soft drinks through to diverse applications such as fish transportation and display. This range includes a double-sided stainless-steel evaporator, which requires fewer cycles to produce a full bin of ice, thereby reducing energy consumption. Crescent-shape ice moves around freely yet packs together tightly in its bin maximizing storage capacity. Individual crescents do not stick together as there are no air pockets so that each piece of ice comes across distinctive in a glass.
