U-Line vs. Sub-Zero Clear Ice Makers (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by John Ramsay V

Clear ice makers spray the water through a sheet of metal so the impurities and air bubbles are drained and removed from the water resulting in higher quality clear ice. Clear ice takes longer to melt and does not change the flavor of the drink. Regular ice makers simply freeze tap water impurities, just like an ice maker in a refrigerator.

U-Line and Sub-Zero are both premier and highly popular undercounter ice makers. We will compare both and even look at the differences between clear and regular ice makers.

U-Line vs. Marvel Clear Icemakers (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

by Paul Gillis

When you call someone to ask them what they need you to bring the party or to that special occasion, more often than not, some say, just bring yourself. You can always bring a few bags of ice as they are always needed.

However, your good intentions and thoughts can often lead to a leaky bag in your car on the way over, or there will be no room in the Refrigerator or coolers for it. Many times the bag will break open and make a mess when you’re trying to break the blocks of ice. Drinks are better with ice, but not a dirty clunk of ice from a cooler at someone’s backyard barbecue. Now you can even buy icemakers with clear, not cloudy ice cubes.

The Difference Between Regular and Clear Ice Makers (Reviews/Ratings)

by Paul Groux

An undercounter icemaker is a great way to have extra ice available for drinks, parties and even for icing down injuries. There are two types of icemakers, clear and regular, both kinds need a 120 volt power source and a water connection. They are different from the icemakers inside your freezer because they produce more ice on a daily basis with a better quality of ice.
