The WEBstaurantStore.com, a leading vendor of restaurant supplies and restaurant equipment, has recently introduced Arctic Ice Machine Cleaner. Arctic Ice Machine Cleaner is specifically designed for removal of mineral buildups which can lead to bacterial contamination in ice machine equipment. This product is specifically formulated to protecting nickel and tin plated evaporators in ice machines.

Steve Ziegler, Product knowledge expert at the WEBstaurantStore shared that "Many people in the food service industry tend to overlook the cleaning and sanitization of ice machines. Machines that lack a proper water filtration system are particularly vulnerable to bacteria and slime growth." Steve also shared simple but important habits like not storing the scoop in the bin with the ice, and making sure to never return unused ice to the storage bin.

Gastrointestinal illness like Norovirus and others can be spread in ice. Proper procedures and regular cleaning with a product specifically designed for ice machines will drastically reduce the changes of ice spread illness. Dedicated scoops designed to prevent hand contact with ice or other foods during use are also an important item to prevent contamination.
