Commercial ice makers generally produce more ice than other kinds of ice makers and they are usually used in homes, offices, and businesses to produce ice in large quantities. They are smaller than industrial ice makers but bigger than domestic ice makers. They come in different sizes and production capacities.
Under the counter, commercial ice makers are preferred in situations where space is not adequate for a bigger machine and where ice production is not required in high quantities. They often come with a bin inside the ice maker, making the ice maker compact and they normally produce an average of 350 lbs a day, making them suitable for use in small restaurants.
