We use this at home, on the road, pretty much everywhere, and so far so good. There really is nothing better than throwing a party and not having to run out and buy ice because youve been storing it from this baby for the past week. Not to mention this ice is so much better than the stuff youd get at the store. This has been a great investment for us. Plus my wife likes the stainless steel look in our kitchen so it really is a win-win!
