The payback of the ice maker RRS feed

  • Question

  • The payback of the ice maker depends on many factors: the scope, intensity of operation, reliability of the selected model, brand value of the manufacturer, etc. The average payback of the most popular ice machines of low productivity (up to 100 kg / day) from well-known German and Italian manufacturers is usually estimated within 2-3 months.

    With such a short payback period, it is obvious that buying an ice machine is preferable to buying ice on the side. The main thing is to determine the need of your company for ice. Large retailers and stores selling frozen and chilled products make ice on their own through lines of flake ice makers. It is advisable to determine the need for a food enterprise in ice on the basis of actual costs, taking into account all types of ice consumption: cooling finished drinks in glasses and bottles, keeping a salad bar, cooling dishes, etc.

    A very approximate calculation of the need for ice can be made on the basis of empirical data - for an average restaurant you need 350-400 g of ice per serving. The need of the bar is calculated taking into account the fact that for every glass of drink half the volume of a glass of ice is needed. Cooling a salad bar will cost 52 kg of ice per 100 liters of refrigerated volume.
