The worst part about bringing a cooler along on trips is eventually, the ice melts. While the melted ice may keep your snacks or beverages cold, it doesn’t last for long. There are also times when going on a road trip and staying in a hotel, walking to the ice machine can become a trek. These are instances when having a portable icemaker would make things easier. I am working with NewAir as a Brand Ambassador this year and am excited to share our experiences with you.
The NewAir Portable Ice Maker is not only beautifully designed but loaded with ease of use features.
Ease of Use
The NewAir AI-100R Portable Ice Maker is very easy to use. Simply plug it in, fill the water source and hit a button on the front panel. On the front LED lit panel you can choose from small, medium or large ice cubes, you also have a power button as well. Once you have filled the water source and turned it on, you will have your first batch of ice in 15 minutes. The ice automatically is placed into a little basket under the lid for easy access and the basket fills up in about an hour. It is recommended that you empty out the machine at the end of each day you use it, just to keep things clean.
The Portable Ice Maker by NewAir uses new technology to make not only the machine smart, but the ice as well. The machine has sensors on the inside to let you know that the basket is full. If the machine is full, the machine will stop making ice. If the ice melts, the water is recycled to make more ice. The recycled water makes it so you don’t have to worry about filling up the water source constantly. The ice itself comes out in a cylinder shape. The shape allows for more surface area of ice to cool more liquid, faster. It also makes so the ice melts faster, together the ice can cool your favorite cocktail or drink, and melt away in a short amount of time.
When To Use
We have used the ice maker at home during parties, but there are so many uses for the machine. The portability makes it so we can take it outside for BBQ or pool parties, we can bring it with us on a camping trip. If you are traveling by car, you can bring it with you to the hotel and never have to make a trip to the ice machine that always seems so far away. The NewAir Portable Ice Maker makes keeping things cold on the go very easy, or even in places where ice isn’t easy to get to right away. We mention in the video that we used the machine to make ice for margaritas, which became easier having the ice machine right next to the blender so party guests could just walk up and make their own drink on the spot.
