Nugget Ice Dilemma: Keeping It Chewable - Exploring the Best Storage Solutions and Gevi Perfect Complement
We came across an interesting topic on Reddit: Keeping Nugget Ice Chewable: Freezer or Fridge? Share Your Tips!: IceChewersAnonymous(See details).
This question has surely been encountered by many ice enthusiasts who can’t resist the pleasure of chewing on nugget ice. How should one store these ice cubes after buying bags and bags of them from the supermarket or Sonic chains?
The number of responses under this Reddit thread isn’t significant (as the IceChewersAnonymous subreddit itself doesn’t have many members), but the answers are quite intriguing:
Undoubtedly, this method exemplifies a practical approach to the problem. After all, if you keep the ice in the fridge compartment, it gradually melts into water. If you store it in the freezer compartment, within a few hours, it forms one big, irregular block of ice, losing its original form—a collection of small, soft, and chewable nuggets.
So, is there a better solution to this problem? As you can see from the Reddit thread, people have tried everything.
One option is to invest in a Nugget Ice Maker. However, it can be quite expensive. Some individuals have also calculated how much money they spend on buying ice over the years, and it often exceeds the cost of a $300+ Nugget Ice Maker.
Furthermore, with a Nugget Ice Maker, there is no need to struggle with a hammer every time you want to break the ice apart. We made a video ourselves to test how much force it takes to break apart Nugget ice after being in the freezer compartment for about four hours:
You can probably imagine (or perhaps you have already experienced) how inconvenient it is to break apart the ice like that. It is also a bit unhygienic since your hammer is not a kitchen utensil. Additionally, it is important to reiterate that the resulting ice is no longer the soft and chewable Nugget Ice.
In contrast, Gevi ChillMax Tumbler is an excellent companion to Nugget ice, truly like two puzzle pieces that fit flawlessly together. You can transfer the ice cubes made with the Gevi Nugget Ice Maker into the Gevi ChillMax Tumbler, and it will preserve 60% of the ice for up to 12 hours. The ice won’t freeze into a solid block; instead, it will remain convenient to use. The best part is that you can easily take it with you to your car, the gym, or by the pool. You can enjoy your homemade refreshing beverages without even needing to open the lid.
We believe that this is the perfect solution.
