Drive-in ice — you know, the nugget-shaped ice you can get at certain fast-food spots — is one of summer’s greatest pleasures, and now you can re-create it yourself at home, thanks to the cult-favorite GE Opal Nugget Ice Maker, on sale now at Amazon in a few different models.
This cult-favorite, pellet ice-producing product is up to 19% off at Amazon right now. You’ll at least score some savings if you’re after that chewable, crunchy ice flake texture.
Originally up to $649 for the stainless black 2.0 model with a convenient side tank (undoubtedly a hefty price tag for a machine that produces frozen water), the ice maker is now marked down for a variety of models. Though that’s not the best discount we’ve ever seen, you’ll at least score some savings if you’re after that chewable, crunchy ice flake texture.
If you tend to take on hosting duties, it’ll be your best friend: The machine can turn out 24 pounds of ice each day in batches of 3 pounds at a time. Plus, it all comes in a compact and portable (!) package that can be easily left out on your countertop or transferred outside for your next barbecue. Just fill up the reservoir with water and get icing.
Be sure to shop soon if you intend to add nugget ice to your kitchen offerings; the machine is likely to sell out fast.
