Have you ever wondered how ice makers are made? Discover how the internal workings of commercial ice machines turn water into fresh cubes on the TV show “How Its Made”.
Humans aren’t the only ones who love ice. Dogs love ice too, especially puppies! Watch these ADORABLE golden retriever puppies playing with ice. The cubes stick to their noses and paws, but they don’t seem to mind.
Want to add a bit of class to your cocktails? Learn how to make really big ice cubes for your next party.
Let’s face it, portable ice makers make cubes that are pretty tiny. They’re fine for filling a cooler, or every day use, but what if you want something truly unique?
Big ice cubes for your drinks don’t just look good, they also take a lot longer to melt. You can have a few ice cold rounds of your favorite mixers without refilling your ice.
The age old question has finally been answered: why do ice cubes crack in drinks?
Long story short, ice cubes crack because of differential expansion. This is basically saying that when the ice hits your drink, which is warmer than the ice is, the outside of the ice warms up faster than the inside of the ice.
Since the outside warms up faster, it begins to expand. This expansion happens faster than the cold inside, which causes the cubes to crack up.
Just found this video and I think that it’s really neat. This guy has a solar powered portable ice maker setup. Imagine getting free ice powered by the sun!
