The Vision low-profile ice and beverage dispensers have an optional ice water bath used to chill the beverage water and syrup before the carbonation process. According to the manufacturer, this allows the water to absorb more carbon dioxide, producing a beverage that is closer in quality to bottles and cans. The ice water bath also helps avoid the dilemma of summertime warm water conditions that can produce a “flat” or “foamy” drink, said the company. Available in 150 or 300 pounds of ice storage, the undercounter dispenser can be positioned in an island counter or away from the wall without restricting visibility.
