The Ice Machine of Your Desires


Let me set the scene. 

There we had been, in Palm Springs- me, Michael & all our mates. Gillian began describing this ice maker that each one of her mates in Dallas have. She mentioned it’s this superb machine that makes crushed ice so if you’re hungover you may stroll proper into your individual kitchen, seize an enormous glass of espresso bean-esque crushed ice & make your very personal lemon water snow cone. Instantly I used to be intrigued. 

Gillian went on to clarify that one in all her mates makes use of it for iced espresso snow cones, skinny margaritas, grapefruit Spindrifts & contemporary mint SPORTea. I used to be offered. Influenced. HAD to have it. Proper then & there I went on Amazon & purchased the actual ice maker she was speaking about. However lately I acquired this improve.

Okay, so let me break down this machine for you:

♡ It would match proper in your countertop. ( Ours is in a nook of our kitchen ).

♡ It solely takes 20 minutes to make superb, crunchy, completely sized pebble ice.

♡ The ice bin can maintain as much as 5 lbs of ice at a time.

♡ You don’t want a water hookup. That is very handy as a result of it means you may transfer your ice maker round. You refill a water reservoir & then it simply must be plugged in to a normal outlet.

♡ When the ice melts it GOES BACK into the water reservoir. That is very best as a result of it means your ice bin gained’t have an enormous frozen brick on the backside.

This is without doubt one of the greatest purchases I’ve made this yr. It’ll in all probability be yours too. You’ll be capable of go to your kitchen, load your favourite cup with espresso bean-esque ice nuggets, fill it with water, tequila -whatever- & a cute silicone straw, kick your heels up & loosen up together with your freezing chilly beverage.
