Crushed ice to quench thirsts

New Sirman Alaska Ice Crusher available from FEM

Slush-type drinks, frappuccinos and cocktails are just some of the refreshing, cold drinks that are in increasingly hot demand. All can be made using crushed ice. Foodservice Equipment Marketing (FEM) has launched the new Sirman Alaska ice crusher, which produces large quantities of crushed ice fast.

The Sirman Alaska ice crusher allows users to crush ice to different sizes by simply adjusting the blade. The 150 watt motor rotates the blade at 750 rpm to quickly and efficiently crush the ice to the desired consistency. The crushed ice then falls into the unit’s large capacity ice hopper, or it can be used so that the ice falls directly into a glass or cocktail shaker.

Sturdy stainless steel and ABS construction makes the Alaska ice crusher durable, long-lasting and able to withstand the toughest of kitchen or back bar environments. Measuring 217 mm (w) x 324 mm (d) x 630mm (h) the crusher can easily fit behind the bar or in the kitchen.

Crushed ice can also be used for display purposes, such as on fish counters, and chefs often use it for rapid chilling or keeping food items cool.

FEM supply the Sirman Alaska ice crusher with a full 12- months parts and labour warranty.
