I know what you are thinking; yes I do want a portable icemaker, but I don’t know where to begin. Lucky for you we did all the legwork for you and all you need to do is sit back and read.
When you are shopping for a portable ice maker there a few questions you need to ask yourself before you actually make a purchase.
The first question to be answered is how much ice do I need? The amount of ice you need will help you decide on the size of the machine that will best fit your requirements. Some countertop ice makers can make up to 35 pounds of ice a day. If you are planning on entertaining, you want to make sure you purchase a unit that can produce enough ice for your guests.
The next point to consider is how much ice can the machine store? Ice makers make ice, but they are not freezers. So, the size of the storage bin varies depending on how much ice the machine makes. The more ice it can make, the larger the storage capacity. The bottom line is that you need to use the ice.
The next question you need to ask yourself is what size ice cubes do I want? Most compact ice makers generate cubes that resemble bullets. Some higher end machines allow you to choose the size of the cubes, usually small, medium, and large cubes. Typically, the large sized cubes are comparable to traditional ice tray cubes. Think about what you prefer, as well as what you need.
Ok, now you have decided on an ice maker, how do you keep it in good condition? It’s pretty simple actually. You just need to wipe the outside down and clean the water reservoir after each use. Also, you can occasionally clean the unit with a cap of lemon juice or vinegar. These easy steps will keep your portable ice maker in great condition.
