When you need ice on the go, a countertop ice maker is a valuable tool to have at hand. These convenient units will give you fresh, cold ice at a moment’s notice. If you enjoy frequent travel, boating trips, camping trips, outdoor entertaining, or pool parties, portable ice makers will simplify your life. When you have a reliable supply of fresh, clean ice, you can relax with your family and your guests.
The Benefits of a Countertop Ice Machine
Nowadays, it's not uncommon for your refrigerator to include an ice maker. These are great for anyone that uses ice on an occasional basis. But for many homes, the ice maker in your fridge may not be able to keep up with the demand. This is where a secondary ice machine could benefit you.
Quick & Efficient
It can take a couple of hours for your refrigerator to produce a new batch of ice. This is simply not quick enough. Portable units can produce ice cubes in ten minutes.
Always Fresh & Free of Odors
When ice is stored for too long, it will slowly start to change in flavor. If your ice is stored in a freezer or fridge, it may take on unpleasant odors from food and liquids in the freezer. This won't happen with portable ice makers. In these units, you will always have a supply of fresh ice ready to serve.
Save Money By Eliminating Bags of Ice
If you’re hosting a party or traveling away from home, you’ll likely need a consistent supply of ice that your freezer just simply can’t supply. Instead of driving to the store for large bags of ice and hoping they don’t melt, you can use a countertop ice maker in the comfort of your own home, RV, boat, or garden.
How A Countertop Ice Maker Works
One of the benefits of portable ice makers is sheer efficiency. These units are designed to produce ice quickly and reliably. As soon as you switch them on, they start making ice. It can take as little as 10 minutes for the first batch of ice to appear. Even a compact portable ice maker can give you up to 30 pounds of ice per day, making it ideal for parties and barbecues. Once the ice is produced, just scoop it into a clean bag or bucket and use it to keep your food and drinks cool for hours at a time.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
