One Response to Ice Machines Made in America

    I do not presently have an ice making machine, but I am here, because I am trying to figure out what is the best “American Made Ice Making Machine that I can find. I do believe in 100% American made products, so that is why I am sending you this message.

    OK, what am I going to use this Ice Making Machine for? I am planning on building a shed that will be 136 feet by 60 feet. I do plan to have a kitchen in this shed, as this shed will be able to sit around 250 people or more for a sit down dinner. I am looking for an American Made Ice Making Machine, that is free standing, where it makes ice and you simply use an ice scoop to get the ice out of the machine.

    Please tell me, if there is such an American made Ice Making Machine made, that I am looking for? Please tell me the Brand and or name of the machine that I am looking for, how to find a place to order this machine, and the measurements of this machine, as I am designing the kitchen now.

    Thank you in advance for you help and advice.

    Eldon Sweet
