Observe your kitchen for a while and think of what appliances you may need. There may be a lot of items that are going to fill your list, but now, we will explore three reasons why you need a portable ice maker.
Ice Makers Make Ice Fast
You have to bear in mind that an ice maker is not a freezer. You will not use it to store foods and drinks, but to make consumable ice blocks. Consequently, it can make ice relatively faster than the fridge because of the power and design efficiency.
For instance, ice makers like the Avalon Bay AB-ICE26S, and NewAir AI-100R can make 27 pounds of ice in more or less fifteen minutes. It will be your best reinforcement when you need to serve many drinks all at once.
Ice Makers are Perfect for Party
When you host a party, you will probably feel uncomfortable with people going back and forth to your fridge for the ice cubes. It will make you lose some privacy and reduce the refrigerator’s lifespan. A portable ice maker can give you an excuse to make your kitchen unaccessible to your guests. In fact, you can place it in the outdoors, and it will be your best ice source for a barbecue and grill party.
However, ice makers cannot keep ice cubes for a long time. Once the cubes are created, they will begin to melt, and the ice forming process will restart again. Therefore, you may need some adjustment before you can get used to the machine. Nevertheless, it will still be a helpful appliance.
Ice Makers Make Your Outdoor Activities Cooler
Portable ice makers use little electricity to run (approximately 120 volts) which makes it handy enough for camping. You can bring a $300 worth portable generator and have the ice maker making you some chilling ice cubes. It will be perfect if you are going to spend hours outdoors, like when you go fishing, hiking, or birdwatching.
Besides, you can bring along an insulated container and turn it into a cooler box. It can help you to keep your food ingredients and beers cool in a hot temperature. Imagine having a plan to grill some freshly hunted venison, but then there is nowhere to store it. A hunter would have understood precisely how vital a cooler box is to them.
