Hoshizaki KMD-450M

Modular Crescent Cube Ice Machine

The Hoshizaki line of ice cuber machines feature an exclusive stainless steel evaporator. The evaporator design freezes the purest water, resulting in crystal clear crescent cubes. With no plating to peel or flake off and no plastic to crack with our evaporator, Hoshizaki offers the simplest icemaking system in the industry which means dependability, longer machine life, and energy savings for you. All KM Cubers feature the CycleSaver® design and the EverCheck® control board.

Typical applications include restaurants, cocktail lounges, lodging, food and banquet service, guest ice, beverage service, convenience stores, fast food and salad displays. With Crescent cubes, the output has excellent displacement because of their unique shape. Better displacement produces higher profits. And the unique shape of Hoshizaki Crescent Cube ice allows liquid to flow over it more easily, whether pouring from bottles or dispensers. So there's no messy splashing and less waste.
