Many people are addicted to soft, chewable ice and consume it by the cupful. This ice is popular and has even helped make certain fast food chains famous. Whether you are looking to please patrons looking for a chewable textured ice or to provide quality ice for patients in a healthcare facility, the Manitowoc RNS-20 will get the job done.

Awarded “Best in Class” overall for ice makers by the Foodservice Equipment and Supplies magazine for the past four years, Manitowoc leads the commercial ice machine industry. They back up their quality with customer care, providing their customers a warranty of two years parts and labor with five years on compressor.

The RNS-20 brings this legacy of quality to a countertop near you. This ice maker produces up to 261 lbs. of standard ice daily and stores up to 20 lbs. Manitowoc’s DuraTech exterior front panel is coated with a scratch and stain resistant finish. Nugget ice necessarily contains both water and ice, with the best cube being the driest. The average ice content in these soft ice cubes ranges in between the low 80s and the low 90s in percentile. Manitowoc is proud of being on the higher end of this industry average, having a 90% ice content rate. Drier ice will prevent watery drinks. The RNS-20 is a quality dispenser that produces a better cube.

For dispensing options, you can choose lever-activated or touchless dispensing, whichever best fits your needs. For convenient dispensing, choose the RNS-20.
