Ice Bins and Dispensers
Unless you buy an Undercounter Ice Maker you will need to give some thought as to how you are going to store your ice. When you buy an ice machine you will also need to buy a ice bin or dispenser to go with it. Pairing an ice maker with a bin is a good option for businesses that need the ability to store large amounts of ice and access large amounts of ice quickly (think restaurants and the server stations). A ice dispenser is what you will need if you will be using your ice maker where your guests can get their own ice (fast food restaurants, and hotels for example). Both bins and dispensers store ice and both come in varying storage capacities, the main difference is how you access the ice. With a bin you will need to manually scoop out the ice, with a dispenser the ice will be delivered right to your glass, no manual labor required.
