Improved Ice Bin Invented by InventHelp® Client (PTL-536)

Share Article

An Oregon-based InventHelp client has invented the Bar Friender, which is being submitted to companies for review.

"I had to wait a long time for a cocktail because glass had broken in the ice bin, and the bartender had to empty and clean it," said an inventor from Gresham, Ore. "Considering other forms of ice contamination (such as sneezes or bacteria buildup), I decided that there needed to be a convenient way to replace contaminated ice."

The patent-pending BAR FRIENDER is a modified ice bin that can be cleaned more quickly and easily and allows for timely replacement of contaminated ice. It avoids downtime, which doesn’t endanger patronage, and it ensures clean, safe ice. Overall, it saves time, effort and money, as well as reduces messes and liability. Ergonomic and easy to use, the bin is ideal for bars, clubs, restaurants, casinos and fast-food establishments.

The original design was submitted to the Portland office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
