Ice never tasted so good, and ready when you need it the most. The Manitowoc QM-45A Compact Ice Maker produces up to 95 pounds of 7/8-inch rhomboid-shaped dice ice cubes per day, and has a storage capacity of up to 30 pounds. Specifically designed to fit beneath counters, this petite sized machine is ideal for coffee shops, stadium boxes, or refreshment break areas. This ice maker is air cooled, meaning it uses air to cool down the mechanical parts, instead of water, making it much more energy efficient. This machine vents completely through the front, as air flows in from a filter on the left, and out through the right, and since there are no side vents, it is ideal to install under countertops and next to other equipment. The reusable air filter slides out from the bottom front without tools and is easy to clean, protecting your condenser from lint, grease and dust. The easy to use front-access control panel can turn the machine on/off or set it to clean. The bin door is ergonomically angled, providing visibility and easy access to the ice without you having to bend over, and it slides up and out of the way for maximum access.
