Your Source for Quality Ice Products and Services in West Hollywood
In most cases, when you need ice, you simply head to your refrigerator. In cases where we need more than that, we usually make a trip to the market. But there are those situations where this will not suffice.
You might have a wedding you are planning, or perhaps the electricity is out at the house and you need to stop food from going bad. It could be that you run a restaurant and need special ice for drinks and serving, or maybe you want to add some special effects to your next Halloween celebration. What do you do in these cases?
You turn to Crystal Ice. In West Hollywood, we have long been known as the company to turn to for reliable ice products that need to be delivered in a hurry. In fact, we have been the top ice provider to West Hollywood for over 60 years. Our product offerings are diverse and our service is top notch, ensuring that you can always get the ice products you need, when you need them.
Can there really be that many different types of ice products? Yes, there can! We hope that you are both surprised by and pleased with the many different ice products we offer. Below are just some of the ice products you can purchase from Crystal Ice.
Block ice is pretty much what it sounds like: a large block of ice. Due to its density, it melts very slowly, making it ideal for situations where you need to keep items cold over an extended period of time. This type of ice was once used in most every American home before electric refrigerators and freezers were invented. Now, it is used for various purposes, such as keeping food fresh at outdoor markets or on buffet lines, or even for helping slow the melting of other ice used for display. Crystal Ice carries blocks in 25-lb, 50-lb, 75-lb, 100-lb, 125-lb, 150-lb, 175-lb, 200-lb, 225-lb, 250-lb, 275-lb and 300-lb sizes. Choose your preferred size as a completely clear product or with your desired level of cloudiness.
Dry ice isn’t ice in the way we tend to think of it. Rather than frozen water, it is made from frozen carbon dioxide. As it melts, it creates gas, not liquid, releasing a foggy vapor. This ice is incredibly cold, so it is ideal for long-term needs, such as hauling perishable goods or using it in laboratories. It is also a great choice for creating special effects. However, when used improperly, dry ice can be dangerous, so if you purchase it from us, we will discuss the precautions you need to take. We offer dry ice in many different sizes, ensuring you can get what you need.
Cube, Crushed, and Cocktail Ice
For most of us, ice is used for little more than cooling our drinks. But even when used for this purpose, there are many options available to you. You might choose your type of ice based on personal preference or the look it gives the drink. However, many cocktails call for specific types of ice. So, if you are looking to impress the guests at your next party, it is vital that you keep different types of ice on hand. We can supply you with many different types of ice in whatever quantity you need.
Here in West Hollywood, we don’t get to see a lot of snow. In fact, we don’t get to see it at all unless it is through a special effects snow production. Because of this, we are very pleased to offer our snow productions to West Hollywood residents, allowing them to experience this magic despite living in such a warm climate. To create our artificial snow, we use filtered water that is misted into a freezing chamber, turning it instantly into white, fluffy snow. We can then place this snow wherever needed to give you the look and experience you desire.
Whether you want an ice sculpture simply for decoration or want it to have a functional purpose as well, we can create it for you. Ice sculptures are a great way to add a little extra something to your special event or restaurant. In the hands of our master sculptors, a block of ice can become most anything you want it to be, from angelic forms to beautiful flowers to simple serving bowls and trays. You can even some to us with your sketches and we will create something 100% unique to you. In all cases, you can expect to experience no unexpected surprises and get the high-quality product you were seeking.
With all of our products, we are more than happy to deliver them to you. In many cases, you will not have the type of transport needed to get the products where they need to be safely, so we don’t want you to stress about it. Our delivery service strictly adheres to deadlines, ensuring that you have the product you need when you need it.
As we operate three ice docks in the area, we can reach any local address within an hour and a half for standard delivery. For items such as ice sculptures and snow productions, it is important that you schedule delivery at least a week in advance. For emergency orders for most products, we can reduce our delivery time and get to you as soon as possible.
Delivery services include unloading the product, getting it inside, and setting it up as needed. We also handle display setup and equipment loans when appropriate. Our goal is to make your purchase from us as stress-free as possible.
