Ice flakes. There a certain machines that can create ice flakes rather quickly. The Scotsman Ice Flakers are able to do this. They make the ice in the machine in the form of flakes. The ice forms small flakes that are ejected from the machine. The ice flakes have a very satisfying appearance and texture that are used often in certain cocktails. It can also be added to novelty drinks if you choose to create your blend.

Crushed ice. Scotsman has a variety of machines that can make crushed ice within a few minutes. Previously, people would make the ice first and then use an ice crusher so this was quite a lengthy process. However, technology advancements have made this process much simpler. Restaurants benefit greatly from this advancement in ice machines because it speeds up their service. Crushed ice is used for a variety of different cocktails.

And gone are the days when people used to manually crush ice to get it to the desired texture for their drink. Now there are ice machines that can make ice the way you want it, whether that is gourmet cubes, flakes or crushed ice. It is wonderful to know that this long process has been shortened to a mere few minutes. That is good news for restaurants and bars that have to serve a lot of customers within a short space of time every day. So go ahead and have fun with the different types of ice you can make.
