Our Most Popular Ice Machine For The Home


Whether you’re looking to buy or rent, an ice machine is an invaluable addition to your home. No more waiting for the slow, loud ice maker in your refrigerator! In this blog, you’ll find the following information:

  • Common questions our customers ask about home ice machines 
  • General explanations for why a home ice machine is a smart choice
  • Our most popular home ice machines with product descriptions and features

Before we get started, think little picture. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • How many family friends or guests visit your home on a monthly basis?
  • How much space in your home is dedicated to food preparation? 
  • Does your refrigerator’s ice maker frustrate more than it makes the ice you need when you need it?

There’s a lot to consider, which is why we write these blogs (check out our blog, The Scoop, for more!) and offer dedicated customer support during our business hours. You don’t have to make a big decision like this alone.


Why Have a Dedicated Ice Machine In Your Home?


We get it— you already have that ice maker in your refrigerator. And, for the most part, it can get the job done. Why bother with a dedicated appliance just for ice if I have one that already makes ice?

The most compelling reason to have your own dedicated ice machine is to serve guests! It’s absolutely fantastic if you regularly host dinners, parties, backyard gatherings, or just end up as the house on the block that every kid seems to end up at. An empty ice maker isn’t an option.

Instead of leaving your home, driving to a grocery store or gas station, picking up ice, coming back home, then worrying if you have enough or when it melts, just buy or rent your very own home ice machine. All you need to do then is walk to your kitchen or any space the machine is installed, scoop some ice, and you’re good to go. 

There are a handful of other great reasons why you should have a dedicated ice machine in your home, like crystal clear ice that tastes great and melts slower whenever you want or no more dealing with that cramped, slow, and grimy refrigerator ice maker.
