A machine producing balls of ice instead of cubes has been launched to create more theatre for serves in pubs and bars.

Manufacturer Hoshizaki has created a first-of-its-kind ice ball machine with 26kg per day capacity and 17kg of storage to provide an alternative to ice cubes for bartenders.

As well as the novelty factor, the company said ice balls make a “stunning visual statement”, especially when served in hi-ball glasses; melt more slowly than ice cubes; and prevent sticking due to their rounded surface.

Each ball is made individually with a jet spray to “ensure the highest possible ice quality” and the storage bin has high density foam injected insulation to slow down ice melting.
