Party Hosting with a Portable Ice Maker
No matter what kind of party you're hosting: a kid's birthday, a graduation, or even a 21st birthday, a portable ice maker is an ideal accessory to have on hand. With a portable ice maker you can mix simple drinks, blend slushies, or make margaritas for you and guests.
There's never a need to buy bags of ice from the store or wait hours for your fridge to produce what you need. Simply set one of these units up and plug it in. This handy appliance is easy to use and includes options that are guaranteed to make any party you're planning a great success. Here are a few product features to look for.
Size and weight: You need to be able to handle the machine. It should be portable so you can carry it outside and set it up by the pool and compact so it'll fit on countertops easily. Choose a model that's lightweight and compact in size so you can handle it on your own.
Operating cycle: You want an ice maker that'll meet your needs. Look for one with a quick production time. Most models make ice in as little as 7 minutes, so you can start making beverages for your guests quickly. You also want it to produce enough ice in one sitting so you all of your guests can enjoy a fresh beverage when they want it. Most models produce 9-12 pieces of ice at a time.
Daily production: If you're someone that likes to entertain, then you need an ice maker that'll make lots of ice. Look for a model with a daily capacity of at least 28 lbs. If you plan to mix drinks or blend beverages all day then try a larger model that can make up to 50 lbs. per day. The NewAir AI-215 is capable of meeting this need.
Ice sizes: Most ice makers make 3 different ice sizes for making the perfect drink. So whether your just mixing ingredients by hand or blending them, making any beverage is easy.
Quick and easy maintenance: Look for an ice maker that's easy to clean, drain, and operate. Choose a model with a drain plug to remove excess water. Also look for a removable ice bin, so you can access the ice easier and store what isn't used. Moreover, look for indicator lights that let you know when the ice bin is full or when water is needed for production.
If you invest in a portable ice maker that includes the benefits mentioned above, you're bound to enjoy a successful event!
