Hoshizaki has introduced the super-compact DSM 12 ice dispenser, for use when only relatively low volume is required or when usage is occasional.

The DSM can either be wall-hung or counter-top mounted and produces 13kg of thimble-shaped cubes every 24 hours.

The model dispenses the required amount of fresh ice directly into a glass, so that it does not have to be touched by a scoop and air is not allowed to enter the machine, ensuring hygiene.

According to Hoshizaki, the DSM is suitable for situations where iced drinks only account for a small percentage of sales.
