Frost and a Light Show with the Beverage Air RC-500
Is your bar looking for a little flash to go with that frost? Beverage Air introduced their new rapid chill glass froster at the NAFEM show in February. Our buyers and salespeople loved it. It’s great for chilling beer, champagne and cocktail glasses without watering down the drink. The froster uses a blast of CO2 (canister sold separately) and takes less than ten seconds per glass. It is counter-mountable and requires two AA batteries to power the LED light show. We wrote about the RC-500 on our May 11th blog titled The RC-500: Frost and Flair from Bev-Air. Check out it out for more detail, including a video of the froster in action. We know you are hooked! Buy one now.

Ice Machine Improvements
You say that there isn’t much innovation in ice machines? Our new offering from Scotsman says otherwise. First, we added their new Meridian™ series of nugget ice makers with touch-free ice and water dispensing. They are an update from the now discontinued MDT line. These countertop machines feature 260 lbs. to 500 lbs. of ice production a day in a space-maximizing footprint and are more energy and water efficient than their predecessors. While these units are popular in healthcare environments, they are perfect for any establishment when ice and water are frequently dispensed. Check out our three models, the HID312A-1 (260 lb. production with 12 lb. bin), the HID-525A-1 (500 lb. production with 25 lb. bin) or the HID-540A-1 (500 lb. production with a larger 40 lb. storage bin).Upgrades have also come to the Scotsman line of cuber heads with the move to Prodigy Plus® technology. Scotsman moved the air filter to the front on air cooled models to allow more efficient ice production and tighter installations between walls or other equipment. Service and maintenance are simplified with new Industry-exclusive QR codes that allows your technician to easily connect with serial number-specific service history and user manuals for your unit. Plus, new AutoAlert ™ indicator lights lets you know the machine’s operational status and warns of possible production interruptions. Finally, a hard water condition detector will purge mineral-laden water with every freeze cycle, reducing scale buildup and extending time between normal cleanings. These new features are available throughout the entire line of Scotsman modular cube ice machines.

Some restaurants need to prep a variety of food for key menu items. Have you ever wanted to eliminate some of your prep work? Now, you can! Process soups, sauces, marinades and more with a Waring LiquiLock™ Food Processor! LiquiLocks come with a sealed, clear-view bowl that prevents leaks and spillage.
The Waring LiquiLock™ Food Processor comes with a slicing disc, shredding disc and grating disc. The single speed with pulse option is perfect for a slow chop, or you can use the easy on and pulse/off controls for breaking down a large amount of food. Reduce your prep time with the help of the extra-large feed chute that keeps a continuous supply of food down into the processor. LiquiLocks come with a high-impact, unbreakable polycarbonate bowl that even resists scratching!
You may think that all food processors are treated the same – but only the Waring LiquiLock™ Food Processor has a limited 5 year motor, 2 year parts and labor warranty, one of the best in the business! The motor is protected from overuse and heavy-duty loads with the help of Thermal Overload Protection. LiquiLocks are the only food processor to have a Sealed S-Blade that locks into the bowl for added safety. The Seal System allows you to pour from the bowl while keeping the blade locked in. Thanks to Waring’s Safety Interlock System the machine will not operate until all of the parts are securely in place.
Now… what to create with your Waring LiquicLock™ Food Processor? Meet Chef Ralph Perrazzo. With the help of this video, you can learn how to make his very own “Strawberry Confetti”. Chef Perrazzo demonstrates the ease of slicing strawberries with the slicing disc. The disc is so delicate it slices without bruising the berries! He also uses the Sealed S-Blade system to scrape out the cream without having the blade fall out into his sauce!
