Absorbent, Soft Nugget Ice for Drinks and More


When employees or guests reach for a hydrating beverages, chances are they’re hoping it has nugget ice. This soft, chewable ice provides an absorbent base for any drink. No matter what you need it for, this ice is always a crowd favorite.

Also known as cubelet ice, this ice type is popular with hospitals and elementary schools because its soft, chewable texture is easier on teeth than traditional cubes and presents less of a choking hazard. It’s also a great choice for restaurants and sandwich shops that serve a lot of soft drinks to customers.

Nugget Ice Makers Produce Ice in All Sizes


Depending on the type of ice machine, cubes come in sizes ranging from 3/8” to ½" in width and length. We have nugget ice machines that produce up to 800 lbs of ice a day, and plenty of ice machine equipment designed to dispense ice without clumping or causing drinks to spill.


A Functional Ice Cube for Hospitals and Schools


If your hospital needs a way to hydrate patients who have a hard time swallowing liquid, cubelet ice like this is a great choice. Its soft texture is easy on teeth and melts quickly. It’s also a great choice for cold compresses, because it molds around difficult surface areas like knees and elbows, providing consistent cooling.

Kids love this ice because they can chew on it without hurting their teeth.


A Great Choice for Drinks


Nugget ice is a wonderful option for bars and restaurants as well. It's porous, so it absorbs drinks and retains their flavor. If your bar or restaurant serves a lot of sugary drinks, like margaritas or mai tais, a nugget ice maker will make an excellent addition as a commercial bar ice maker to your business.
