Bars and restaurants are hardly ever found without an ice machine for serving cold beverages or for keeping display foods chilled. Inevitably, there will be times when chunks of ice melt together slightly, forming a large mass of solid ice. In situations like this, an ice chipper or ice pick comes to the rescue. Although they might look like something out of a horror movie, these ice chippers and picks are handy tools when it comes to breaking up large chunks of frozen ice.
They are also quite useful for the defrosting process when cleaning freezers and refrigerators, although it is important to be careful not to scrape the stainless steel interior. These tools are also essential for ice carving. If you are considering ordering a few hunks of ice for decorative purposes, make sure you have the right tools for the job.
