The Opal Nugget Ice Maker – Ice cubes are just too…square

Opal Nugget Ice Maker

When it comes to making the perfect drink, ice can mean everything. You’re not going to find ice cubes in a martini, or crushed ice in a mimosa. The best type of ice for most types of libations is nugget ice. If you’ve ever had it before you already know why, but it is the best at becoming one with your drink as it absorbs the flavors, chills your drink pretty quickly, and is easy to crunch in your teeth without locking up your jaw.

Of course, the difficult part about this type of ice is that you can’t just find it anywhere. Most of the time it is exclusively at restaurants and bars, but what if you could have it at home? The Opal Nugget Ice Maker is sure to make all of your house parties the most coveted of all, because you’ll have the best ice. Sort of a silly and trivial thing, but who doesn’t need a better ice maker for house parties from time to time?

All you’ll need for this is a 120V power supply and clean water to get things started. It’s all touch control, can make up to 24 pounds of ice in a day, is made of stainless steel, and holds 3 pounds of ice at a time. It’s not even two feet tall, so it can be wherever you need it to without being in the way. This is going to cost you $399 as part of a crowdfunding campaign, but what you will save on ice for gatherings will likely make it worth it.

Available for crowdfunding on indiegogo
