Ice is one of those things I appreciate the most when I don’t have it. When I go camping, for example, our family relies on a cooler to keep things cold, which usually involves buying lots of ice from the camp store and pouring it into said cooler. Summer heat can be relentless, and defeating it takes plenty of ice.
For the average person, there are a few ways to get ice. Many refrigerators have ice makers, and if one doesn’t, an ice tray in the freezer can do the job. In a pinch, the local gas station or grocery store (although, sadly, not Aldi) typically sells 7-pound or 20-pound bags of ice.
Another solution? A dedicated ice maker. This little appliance will turn water into ice without the need for a freezer or a trip to the store. And Aldi is selling one.
What We Know:
The Ambiano Countertop Ice Maker (Product Code: 814587) is an Aldi Find, which means it’s only in stores for a limited time. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, and it won’t be back in stock until Aldi brings it back, whenever that might be. Aldi doesn’t ship its products online, so if you can’t find it in stores, you won’t be able to get it.
At the time of this post, the ice maker is priced at $89.99. That’s lower than most other portable ice makers on Amazon.
Here’s more information on the ice maker, according to Aldi:
- Features 2 selectable ice-cube sizes
- Includes large viewing window
- Scoop and basket included
