For those of us who have spent time in the hospital, the experience is often unpleasant. Days and nights may be spent doing nothing more than lying in bed, and unless you’re a fan of all-you-can-eat Jello, the food is usually sub-par as well. If there’s one thing people look froward to during a hospital visit, it would definitely be the hospital ice that is served. This ice- for those that don’t know- is usually soft, chewable, and delicious. It is usually the most missed part of peoples’ stay at the hospital (unless you really enjoyed your sponge bath). And now, you don’t need to call 911 to have access to this ice all the time. You can have hospital ice (which is also called nugget ice or Pearl Ice) in your own home with the Ice-O-Matic GEMU090 undercounter Pearl Ice Machine.
Hospital Ice is Popular!
The ice found in hospitals is affectionately known as “hospital ice” by those that have been fortunate enough (or unfortunate enough depending on your situation) to stumble upon it. People who have never had the chance to enjoy this ice may not understand what makes it so delicious. It’s all about the composition of the ice. The soft, air-filled ice pellets are crunchy and chewable, leaving ice chewers looking forward to the moment that their glass is free from liquid. You can find Facebook Pages dedicated to Sonic Ice, nugget ice, and hospital ice, with “ice addicts” across the country uniting in their bond over delicious nugget ice.
We’ve heard testimonials from people who admit, “I cannot stop chewing this ice!” and will buy it by the cupful or by the bagful. (Don’t believe us? Check out this blog post from Rachel, a dedicated ice chewer). Now however, you can bring hospital ice home with you – with the Ice-O-Matic GEMU090. This undercounter ice machine from Ice-O-Matic will give you all the hospital ice you can handle, without the pain and inconvenience of a trip to the hospital. The Ice-O-Matic GEMU090 can create 85 pounds of hospital ice (called Pearl Ice by Ice-O-Matic) in a 24 hour period – enough for even the most serious ice chewers. The internal, self-contained storage area holds up to 22 pounds of ice when filled completely. The only thing that separates hospital ice from the ice created by the GEMU090 is its size. Pearl Ice is fractions smaller than some hospital ice cubes.
Hospital Ice at Home with the Ice-O-Matic GEMU090
While the hospital may use a large nugget ice making head to provide delicious hospital ice to its patients, you can have the same kind of ice in the comfort of your own home, in your office, or in the break room at work. The Ice-O-Matic GEMU090 measures a slim 15 inches wide, and stands less than 35 inches tall. It can be fit under bar counters, or next to existing appliances in your home. The Ice-O-Matic GEMU090 takes in and releases air from the front, so it does not require any side clearance to create ice effectively. If you’re the kind of person who has faked pneumonia to secure a visit to the hospital, or have contemplated calling 911 to get your next hospital ice fix, the Ice-O-Matic GEMU090 may be the perfect ice machine for you.
