Five Appliances to Consider for Your Next Semester

It’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter. Nights are a little cooler, and summer vacation is winding down. This can only mean one thing – No, not that football is almost back, but that the new school year is on the horizon. In order to ready yourself or your college student for the upcoming semester, we compiled five of our most popular items that will fit perfectly in the dorm room, frat house, or college apartment. Whether you need an ice machine for your “up-all-night” events, or require a compact refrigerator for your dorm room, Ice Machines Plus has something to suit you perfectly.

Ice-O-Matic GEMU090GEMU090- Nugget Ice Maker. Those three words should be enough to get you interested. Now you can have the most popular ice in America in the comfort of your own room. This ice has been made extremely popular by Sonic, Zaxby’s, and Taco Time. With the GEMU090, you don’t have to go far to get your favorite kind of ice. You’ll also quickly become the most popular person in the area when news spreads about your possession of one of the coolest undercounter ice machines around. This ice machine makes a decent amount (85 pounds) of ice every day too, so you can go ahead and share the wealth if you desire. The GEMU090 stores around 22 pounds of ice in its self-contained bin, so it takes about six hours to fill completely.

Ice-O-Matic ICEU150ICEU150- If this ice machine was a former president, it would speak softly and carry a big stick, because this is one of the smallest, quietest ice machines available… but it packs quite a punch in terms of ice making. Measuring only 24 inches wide, the ICEU150 is the slimmest commercial grade undercounter ice machine, but it has the ability to produce up to 174 pounds of ice per day. No other ice machine in its class comes close to matching this type of production. If you need an ice machine for a fraternity or sorority house, don’t have a lot of space, and have limited funds, this is one of the best options you can find.

U-Line ADA Compliant Undercounter RefrigeratorU-Line ADA24RGLB-13- You’re going to need a quality refrigerator to keep your beverages cold, and if your fridge looks anything like mine did in college, you may need a backup to keep additional beverages cool. With the ADA24RGLB-13, that is exactly what you will receive. This compact refrigerator can fit nearly anywhere as it stands 32 inches tall and just 24 inches wide. It also makes use of a feature called convectional cooling, where air is fanned and forced throughout the cabinet to ensure that all of your drinks stay cool and at a consistent temperature. The ADA24RGLB-13 from U-Line is Energy Star qualified, and can be set to remain at any temperature from 34 to 45 degrees.

Manual Ice Crusher from Master of LifeMaster of Life Ice Crusher- If you love crushed ice but are tired of banging a bag full of ice with a hammer to get the desired outcome, maybe you should consider this manual ice crusher from Master of Life. Simply operated, the operator need do nothing more than turn a handle to get the crushed ice that is desired. This ice crusher is excellent for making frozen margaritas or strawberry daiquiris for a fancy night in. Crushed ice also melts more quickly, so it cools drinks faster, making this an affordable, quality investment, especially on those warm late autumn or early spring days (or every day at Arizona State).

U-Line BI95 Undercounter Ice MakerU-Line BI95B-00- This ice maker from U-Line isn’t going to produce like the two aforementioned ice makers, but it is one of the most compact units available at Ice Machines Plus. This makes it an incredible convenience to own, as it measures only 25 inches high and 14 inches wide. The BI95 produces up to 23 pounds of ice per day and stores 12 pounds in its self-contained bin. This ice machine costs almost nothing to operate too, using less energy than a 75 watt light bulb. If you’re not going to be throwing parties on a nightly basis, this ice machine should suffice perfectly for your day to day ice needs.

These five appliances are sure to help cure the back to school blues felt by many at this time of year. Whether it’s your first year away and the dorm life seems a bit mundane, or you are the head of your fraternity and want to make a splash with a new addition, these five products should receive a bit of consideration. We can guarantee that the purchase of a new ice machine (especially the GEMU090 or ICEU150) will greatly increase your popularity and notoriety around campus.
