what’s the difference between crescent ice and cube ice?

Cube ice

Cube ice, simply put, is the ice we all know and love. The uniform cubes are best for all types of drinks, keeping your drinks chilled longer without diluting your drink. And our ice cubes come in both large and small sizes, such as 22*22*22mm, 28*13*23mm or 28*28*23mm, but our 38mm cubes will keep construction workers cooler on site longer, perfect for sports clubs and perfect for bagging and resale.

Crescent ice

Crescent ice is widely used in cafes, bakeries, cold drink shops, fast food restaurants, Japanese food shops and other places. Crescent ice is crystal clear, hard, not easy to stick, not easy to melt, and has a beautiful appearance. It can quickly cool drinks and show beautiful form.

The quality of crescent ice is also difficult to ensure because the ice is so thin, meaning it melts too quickly and freezes unevenly. Cubed ice is also easier to use for other purposes, such as resale, because it retains its shape and temperature longer. You can easily promote your business by selling bagged ice and there is nothing a Crescent ice maker can do for that.

Crescent ice may be common in self-serve beverage machines, but it is unacceptable as an ice solution for cocktails or other products where taste and ice quality are important. Cubed ice holds its shape better, melts more evenly, and keeps drinks pure and flavorful. Therefore, you need to reasonably determine the shape of the ice cubes according to market demand so that customers can have different experiences.
