Factors to Consider when Purchasing a Beverage Dispenser

If you are considering purchasing a Cold Drink Dispenser, there are a number of factors that need to be considered to find the piece of equipment that will best meet your needs. These considerations include the configuration of the dispenser, if it features a manual or automatic load and the storage capacity it offers.

Configuration of the Drink Dispenser

A beverage and ice dispenser can be purchased as a counter top unit where the ice is stored inside the dispenser cabinet over the valves, or as an under the counter unit, where the ice is stored below the counter. The decision between the two, will be dependent on the level of convenience, safety and aesthetics for the particular operation. An under the counter model is usually preferred for locations where appearance is crucial, where the dispenser is going to be used at the front of the facility, and locations where manual loading is preferred.

Manual Load vs. Automatic Load

The popularity of the automatically loaded beverage and ice dispensers is growing for many locations, there are a number of reasons to select a manual load dispenser. If you do select a manual load dispenser, the type that is selected should be done so carefully in order to maintain safety and efficiency. For example, if you purchase a counter top model that is 38″ and place it on a counter that is 36″ tall, then you will have to use a step stool for loading purposes, causing a potential safety hazard.

If you still want a manual dispenser, then you should consider a model that will sit down in the counter, rather than on top of it, eliminating the potential for an accident.

Storage Capacity

It is also important to consider how much capacity the drink dispenser you choose offers. If you choose one that is too small, you will be wasting a large amount of time refilling the ice and beverages. Additionally, if you choose one that is too large, you may wind up wasting money due to unused product. You need to carefully consider the size that will be right for your restaurant or operation to avoid wasting time or money.

Choosing a drink dispenser is an important decision, which should be given ample consideration. When this is done, you can feel confident that you have found one that will meet your needs and the needs of your customers.
