Ice Making Machines for Home Use

Who doesn’t love an ice cube or two in their drink during the summer? Even when it’s not a scorcher, there is nothing better than a nice cool drink to help you cool down and enjoy the day (or evening).

Of course, while making ice cubes is reasonably easy, having enough of them to last the day isn’t quite as easy as you’d think. The bigger your family, the more chance there is of running out, just when you are all in need of something to slake your thirst and cool you down.

Fortunately, we have just the solution.

How about an ice-making machine to solve the problem for you?

Wouldn’t it be great to have a machine that made ice cubes without any hassle? All you’d have to do is fill it with water and set it running, and in just a short amount of time you’d have ice cubes to use.

It may sound too good to be true, but that ideal situation can now be a reality. The iceQ stainless steel deluxe ice machine maker is now available to purchase, and it couldn’t be easier to use.

Here’s how easy it is. The machine can take 2.2 litres of water, which you pour into the receptacle provided. When it’s all set to go, you can leave it alone and get on with your day. Mind you, if you were to go and check on it after 15 minutes, you’d have your first nine ice cubes ready to use. (Far quicker than the traditional route of using the freezer and some ice cube trays, wouldn’t you say?)

After those first nine cubes are ready, another nine will appear after around 10 minutes. The process continues until all the water has been used. Put more water in and it will keep going. It’s that simple.

How difficult is it to make your own ice cubes the traditional way?

We know – the average freezer comes with ice cube trays purely to make it easy for you to create cubes to use whenever you need to. All you have to do is fill them and pop them in the tray in the freezer designed for that purpose.

Sounds easy, doesn’t it? And yet it is usually anything but. Filling them is the easy part. Carrying them from the tap to the freezer without spilling anything is difficult, as is the process of tipping the trays to get them into the freezer… again, without spilling anything. It’s a job that should be easy, but it really isn’t. Then of course, you get all the spilled water freezing in sheets in the ice cube drawer. Sounds like a lot of fun, but in reality it is anything but.

And let’s not forget the trouble you can sometimes have getting all the ice cubes out of their trays once they are ready. This can be really tricky, and it can also make your hands ache (not to mention cold). Suddenly the idea of having your very own ice cube machine sounds rather appealing, doesn’t it?

Choosing the easy ice cube machine maker option

Ice Maker Open

You are probably starting to see why buying an ice-making machine makes a lot of sense. If you constantly find yourself struggling to break ice cubes out of their trays, or getting the trays into the freezer with minimal spillages, this could be just the solution.

Another advantage is that this machine really comes into its own for large families, summer BBQs and parties. If you empty out the ice cube compartment as it fills up, and keep topping up the water, you could create up to 12kg of ice cubes in just 24 hours. So no matter how many guests you have, nobody need run out of ice. You could even transfer the ready ice cubes into bags to put in the freezer, so you can carry on creating more. Do this a day or two ahead of the party and you won’t have to send anyone out for more ice again.

While you can get all manner of different ice cube trays that are easier to use than the ones you get with the average fridge freezer, they all have their limitations. Some of them are rigid while others are malleable and easier to handle when the contents are frozen. However, you may still end up with the situation of having your newly-frozen cubes skittering off across the floor, when you really wanted them in your glass.

As you can see, making your own ice cubes can be very easy and convenient. It doesn’t have to be a source of frustration. Consider purchasing your own ice cube machine today and you will soon be wondering why you never thought of buying one before.
