Have you ever heard the term “ice box” used? While the term isn’t so common anymore, it is something you will hear older generations say, and you might notice it when watching older films and period pieces. This is because refrigerators and freezers are fairly recent inventions; before we had them, we had ice boxes.
And that is where block ice originates. Block ice refers to large blocks of ice that can be used for refrigerating, freezing, and even ice sculptures. While they were once used to cool ice boxes and preserve food at home, they now have a wide variety of applications.
The main reason block ice is so desirable is that it is a solid mass, and that means it takes longer to melt. When compared to other forms of ice, it has the ability to last a very long time, making it the more efficient and economical choice. We offer block ice in many different sizes and levels of clarity.
Here at Crystal Ice, we produce clear, super dense, structurally sound slabs of pure ice. We can work with you to determine your specific needs and deliver the perfect block of ice to you. Whether you need it for food display, long-term cooling, or sculpting, our superior block ice will meet your needs.
