Follett LLC announced the launch of the newest and largest capacity member of the award-winning Horizon Elite family. The 2110 series Chewblet ice machines have the same patented scale-inhibiting design as the 1010 and 1410 series with greater production capacity. Offering foodservice operators a low cost of ownership and superior performance even in the most challenging water conditions, Horizon Elite’s design dramatically reduces scale build-up and the associated costs of scale mitigation, all while using 35-50 percent less water than comparable cube-type ice machines.

“Horizon Elite Chewblet ice machines incorporate breakthrough technology that takes ice machines to the next level of performance,” says president Steve Follett. “In scale-prone waters, Horizon Elite ice machines can save operators significant cost by doubling or tripling the time between required cleaning and descaling, and they can use less than half the water required by similar sized cube-type ice machines. With an overall decrease in both water availability and water quality across the country, Horizon Elite represents a huge win for operators and for the industry.”

The benefits of this innovative design have already been recognized by major industry associations. Horizon Elite was awarded Kitchen Innovations 2016 Award presented by the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show, and was named runner-up as 2016 Foodservice Consultant Society International (FCSI) Product of the Year.
