Chill Out: The Crucial Importance of Maintaining Your Frozen Drinks Machine

Polar Krush Group beverages are a delightful treat and a profitable offering for hospitality and retail businesses.

Yet, amid the whirlwind of serving eager customers, it’s all too common to inadvertently sideline a critical aspect: the upkeep of your Polar Krush or Calippo drinks machine.

Let’s dive deep into prioritizing regular maintenance for your frozen drinks machine, guaranteeing customer satisfaction and ensuring your machine works at an optimum….

Weekly Cleaning:

Choose your quietest day, and thoroughly clean the machine’s components weekly, including dispensing nozzles, bowls, lids, and removable parts. Use warm water and mild soap to clean these parts.

Remove any leftover slush from the bowls and wipe down the exterior surfaces of the machine.


Regularly sanitize your machine using washing-up liquid with anti-bacterial properties or Milton Sterilising solution. This helps prevent the growth of bacteria and maintains the quality of the product.

Lubricate any moving parts

Using petroleum jelly, lubricate any moving parts of the machine. This can help keep the machine running smoothly and prevent excessive wear and tear.

Empty and Clean the Mix:

If you’re not using the machine for an extended period, empty the slush mix from the bowls, clean them thoroughly and store the machine in a dry and cool place. This prevents any residue buildup and potential damage.
