A 15 pound!
Follett's new 15 pound ice machine has the same sleek look as the 7 pound along with the popular drainless feature, but its little extra height gives this model the ability to store 15 pounds of chewblet ice.
Today, ice is no longer a convenience, it's a neccesity. New Kurig options, such as, Snapple Ice Tea require ice as part of the brewing process as well as the growing demand for ice coffee. Follett also delivers clean, sanitary ice, which is a paramount concern in today's workplace.
Thinking Ice? Consider these Follett features:
– only 22.5” (57.2 cm) tall and 14.62” (37.1 cm) wide to conserve counter
- no drain is required, you can place the 15 Series anywhere there are water
and electric utilities
– capacitive touch dispensing eliminates direct contact with ice
– energy and water consumption is less than similar sized cube type ice
– stylish design complements any work space
– Agion® antimicrobial treatment¹ of critical components inhibits bacteria
and biofilm growth on the treated surface
– consumer preferred Chewblet ice and optional filtration provide high

We recently visited Three Guys From Brooklyn to witness the savings they realized when installing Waste to Water's machines. Starting with one, they are now up to four machines. The room is remarkably clean, dry, and odor free. Even with the lid up, all that you can smell is the last product that went in, this case oranges.
These machines, available in three sizes, take organic waste and turn it into water - in 24 hours.
Regulations in NYC - water must be drained into a grease trap.
This account has seen savings of over $14,000 a month with these machines and with newer, tighter and more expensive waste regulations coming the savings will be even greater.
This is one purchase that makes perfect cents!
When induction cookers were introduced some years back they were somewhat troublesome. You had to use very specific cookware (you still need induction cookware but the cookers have become much more forgiving), it was expensive and misunderstood.
Fast forward to 2013 and induction is everywhere: front of the house, back of the house and now even in small items like soup warmers.
In Europe, ranges that only feature induction, are being referred to as "cold ranges". This is because induction is very efficient, using nearly all of its energy for cooking and transferring very little of it to the kitchen.
Induction is accurate, giving the chef a greater control on the temperatures he is trying to maintain.
This new soup warmer from Vollrath, is a game changer:
Induction heating means no water required, faster retherm times and better temperature control
Digital controls set temperatures in F and C, or use presets for SOUP, CSOUP, CHILI, MAC & CHEESE
Includes Vollrath induction ready inserts and cover

In the aftermath of SuperStorm Sandy, the National Restaurant Association has posted tips for restaurant insurance.
East Coast operators affected by the recent hurricane and snowstorms can follow a few basic steps to make the insurance-claims process easier, according to a recent client alert from the insurance recovery experts at the Pillsbury law firm.
Compliments from Foodservice Equipment Magazine as passed on by the National Restaurant Association:
Follett ice machines with RIDE™ Remote Ice Delivery Equipment push Chewblet® ice through a tube to automatically fill a drink station, storage bin or jockey box – without the need for any human contact with the ice.
GREATER DESIGN FLEXIBILITY A Follett ice machine with RIDE offers the ultimate in installation flexibility, because it can be positioned almost anywhere – under a counter, mounted on a wall, or in a back room up to 75 feet away
MORE INVITING FOR CUSTOMERS Traditionally, dispensers are “auto-filled” by placing an ice machine directly on top of them. This creates heat and noise in the retail area. A Follett ice machine can auto-fill through a tube from outside the customer area, creating a more attractive, open, inviting fountain area for customers.
MORE SANITARY Unique RIDE technology pushes the ice through the tube. There is no opportunity for contamination from human contact or from dirty buckets or other receptacles during transport.
EASIER MAINTENANCE When a Follett ice machine with RIDE is installed out of the customer area, cleaning and service of the machine always takes place out of the customer’s view. It’s also easier to clean and service the beverage dispenser, since there is no machine of any type on top of it.
CUSTOMERS CHOOSE CHEWBLET ICE! All Follett ice machines produce Chewblet ice – uniformly shaped pieces of chewable ice that are preferred by up to 70% of consumers. Chewblet ice is higher in quality than other forms of nugget ice and dispenses more reliably.

When buying (or selling) a new piece of equipment, do yourself a big favor and find the serial number upon purchase. In the food service industry, pieces get dirty quickly and serial numbers become illegible. One facility I visited had a big binder with all the pieces of equipment they had purchased along with a copy of the invoice and serial number. This simple system will make sure your piece is covered under warranty, that the parts you purchase for it in the future are correct, and will save you countless hours on the phone.
