About ICE

ICE was founded in September 1997 as an importer and wholesale distributor of the ANVIL brand of commercial counter-top catering equipment. Our aim was to offer the market an economical and reliable alternative to what was being offered by local manufacturers and other importers. Following the growth and success of the ANVIL brand, ICE expanded the range to include other brands of equipment as well as commercial refrigeration. We now offer a comprehensive range of refrigeration including counter-top, freestanding, upright displays, upright storage as well as a range of under-bench models.

The International Catering Equipment brands

Sydney Commercial Kitchens has been selling the International Catering Equipment products since our beginning in September 1998.

Their range now also includes ORVED vacuum packing machines and bags, a full range of Hamilton Beach specialty and bar blenders, as well as equipment for the Pizza industry.

They continue to strive to offer the market value for money products, available ex stock, which we back with our one year parts and labor warranty.

ICE brands include:


The Anvil brand has now expanded into several sub brands.


The Anvil Axis range includes the original Anvil products, which are the sandwich press, bench top griddle plates, deep fryers and the stove top boiling units. Many of these original Anvil products have stood the test of time and ICE have now added a Gold Star warranty of 2 years parts and 1 year labour.

The Anvil Axis range now includes panini presses, waffle bakers, convection ovens, proving cabinets, pizza ovens, salamanders and chicken rotisseries.

The Anvil range is variously sourced from South Africa, Brazil and China.


The Anvil Alto range of products includes planetary mixers, induction cookers and warmers, a food processor and a heavy duty mincer.


The Anvil Aire range of products is mostly ICE's refrigerated range of products but also includes the hot food displays.

While other manufacturers often build their refrigerated cabinets to order ICE mostly carries stock of the entire range of products. This means that if your fridge has broken down and is unrepairable then you can replace it almost immediately.

Anvil Axis Belgian Waffle Baker

Posted by: Sydney Commercial Kitchens |  Thursday, October 23, 2014

Anvil’s Belgian style waffle baker is ideal for use in kitchens, coffee shops, outdoor markets and ice cream parlours

Anvil Waffle Maker

A commercial waffle maker is a professional cooking appliance used to make waffles. It usually consists of two hinged metal plates, molded to create the honeycomb pattern found on waffles. The iron is heated and batter is then poured between plates, which are then closed to bake the waffle.

Waffle Recipe

Most modern waffle irons are self-contained tabletop electrical appliances, heated by an electric heating element controlled by an internal thermostat. The Anvil Waffle Bakers feature digital temperature display and programmable heat and time settings and the plates rotate through 180°.

Professional waffle makers are usually made of cast-iron. Many have a light that goes off when the iron is at the set temperature. Cast iron waffle makers are usually not teflon coated and require seasoning like a cast iron frying pan.

The most common shapes and thicknesses of modern waffle makers are often labeled as "traditional" or "classic". The Anvil models make a thicker "Belgian" style waffle.


 Ideal for kitchens, coffee shops, fast food outlets, outdoor markets and ice cream parlours


 2 or 4 x 500W high power heating elements
 Programmable heat and time setting
 Stainless Steel construction
 Digital read out display
 Buzzer timer alarm
 180°C rotating waffle plates


 Programmable heating and timing with audible timer alarm buzzer
