You may or may not heard of True, but it’s safe to say most of us have use their products without even knowing.

Grab a bottle of soda in any supermarket or convenience store and you are probably grabbing from a True commercial product.

True

They’re a staple in our supermarkets and convenience stores. In 1945 the Trulaske family built their first Rail Roll-Top Bottle cooler. By 1948 the 7UP company made their first order to store their Missouri warehouse. That legacy has driven True for over 70 years manufacturing of commercial refrigeration.

The standards for reliability in commercial seem better than residential. Most manufacturers do not want the liability of a Whole Foods or Trader Joes refrigerator case being broken. Have you ever seen a commercial refrigerator actually broken?

True Icemaker

New for 2015 True has introduced the most energy efficient ice machine on the market. The new True ice machine is capable of producing 70 pounds of ice per day to be stored in the 28 pound capacity. The current largest production is 60 pounds, while most are 40-45 pounds per day.

TUI-15-R-SS-B -- Right Hinge Model

Let's Look at the specs:

  • Zero clearance hinging
  • Built in water filter rated up to 1,250 gallons
  • Auto clean system
  • Ice scooper integrated inside door
  • 300 series stainless steel or panel ready
  • 70 lbs of Clear Ice in 28 lbs storage capacity
  • 14 TriLumina LED lighting

First, it is designed and manufactured to a different standard. True is UL approved to be placed inside or even outside. It is warrantied for three years with a 6 year limited part guarantee.

Like many decent icemakers, it filters impurities for clear ice. However, it has a built in pump to move the waste water to a drain. Pump models have much less drainage issues and service than regular gravity drained models (you can buy the others as an option).

Clear Ice vs. Regular Ice

True also offers an auto clean cycle, because icemakers should be cleaned 1 or 2 times a year.

It will look seamless with panels with the zero degree hinge and really fancy when opened. It has 14 different LED color settings.

Final Thoughts

True will be the dominant icemaker on the market, because it is the largest with the best warranty. The features are better than any residential icemaker. You will also like the commercial reliability.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
