Today, we're going to review the advantages of choosing a Follett upright ice bin over a slope front upright ice bin. In a Follett upright bin, the first ice made is the first ice dispensed. This creates a continuous ice turnover that prevents ice from going stale. Slope front ice bins fill the bin from the bottom up, but you scoop ice from the top of the bin. This means the oldest ice waits at the bottom of the bin. You never know when you'll serve your customers old ice with a stale taste or odor. Don't forget that ice is food. Ice can be contaminated when an employee bends into a slope front bin. Their arms, head, and hair can come in contact with the ice. Not to mention, congealed ice is difficult to break with a scoop. When using an upright bin, you'll notice that bending into the bin is not required to scoop ice, which reduces the opportunity for ice contamination. Follett's patented Smartgate ice shield makes it easy for anyone to break the bridge and control the ice. An upright bin not only dispenses fresher ice, but it often requires less linear floor space compared to a slope front bin. When comparing these bins of equal ice storage capacity, the upright bin is narrower, conserving expensive commercial floor space. To find out how you can give your customers cleaner, safer ice while saving on floor space, contact Follett today.
