Portable ice makers can be a useful tool when entertaining at home. While many models of refrigerators and freezers come with ice makers in them, they often do not produce enough ice to serve a large group. Rather than making many trips to the store to stock up on bagged ice, consider a portable ice maker that can provide a time- and money-saving ice solution. For those who entertain frequently, purchasing a portable ice maker can be a wise decision.
