In 1955, Kold-Draft began producing automatic ice cube machines that produce the best ice in the world. Kold-Draft ice is the standard in the cocktail industry. In a recent Penn State University study, Kold-Draft exceeded the purity of all competitors and contained the lowest amount of calcium carbonate of all tested machines. For more than 50 years, they have been creating the perfect cube - more pure and slower melting than any other. Kold-Draft ice machines make perfect one and one-quarter inch cubes using a unique evaporator and water plate system. Kold-Draft's design produces perfect, pure, clean, clear, hard ice cubes - every time.
