Hoshizaki’s KMD line of crescent ice makers is designed for fountain dispensers. The KMD-410 is 22″ wide and produces around 15 lbs of ice an hour, making it a perfect option for delis and self-serve stations. This model features side-to-back ventilation, so heat is emitted behind the unit rather than towards the user. It’s clean, stainless steel exterior makes it excellent for front-of-house use. Since the KMD-410 uses the same evaporator design as all KM models, you never have to worry about ice clumping in the drop zone and backing up the unit. Each customer will have fast access to ice whenever they need it! Crescent cubes are great for sodas and other soft drinks because they are clear and slow melting. Drinks stay crisp and retain their flavor longer than cubelet or crushed ice. Also, the cubes’ narrow design means more cubes can fit in a cup, giving drinks a fuller appearance.
