Why should you buy the DECO Chef Portable Ice Maker?

The ice maker has a storage bin where you can keep the ice for a certain time, with the capacity to hold 1.5 Lbs of ice. So if you are going on a road trip on a summer day, or taking a small fishing trip, the Deco Gear portable ice maker will make things a lot easier for you.

However, since the storage bin is not a refrigerator, the ice will eventually melt and should be used only as storage not as a refrigerator. To slow down the process of the ice cubes melting the storage bin has proper insulation that will keep the outside heat at bay for a certain time. 

The control panel on the DECO Gear portable ice maker is simple, and you can choose the size of the ice cube from it as well as turn it on and off as required. The control panel will also indicate if the tray has reached its capacity or if the water needs to be refilled in the reservoir. You can also easily keep an eye on the ice with the transparent window to know when it is time to remove the ice or add more water.

It also has a removable tray which makes it easier for you to transfer the ice cubes once they are done instead of having to pick one cube at a time which can become inconvenient and messy.
