New undercounter clear ice machines are a perfect match for top-shelf libations
Greenville, Mich. (September 1, 2016) – Luxury appliance manufacturer AGA Marvel released its new collection of Marvel Clear Ice Machines with Illuminice Lighting and new energy-saving features to conserve up to 25% water and electricity.
Still the quietest and the clearest, Marvel engineered its new clear ice models with design and performance attributes that align with the company’s national consumer research. This resulted in greater operating efficiency, flexible functionality, improved service reliability and a bold aesthetic like no other. Vivid waterproof LED lighting illuminates clear ice from below, and models are available with sapphire blue or arctic white Illuminice Lighting. And, ice production is now up to 39 pounds of clear ice daily, the equivalent of nearly five convenience-store bags of ice.
“We’re poised to change the way purists and cocktail connoisseurs enjoy fine spirits and beverages,” says brand manager Leah Kalemba. “Ice quality is a critical component in the composition of a drink, especially with rare, ultra-premium scotch or bourbon. Dilution affects flavor, and the purer the ice, the better a drink tastes as ice melts. Marvel clear ice is unrivaled in clarity, and this new line will certainly elevate the home entertaining experience.”

Marvel employs a fractional freezing process to create high-density, slow-melting ice with pristine purity, much like a fine chocolatier tempers chocolate to a solid state for the best quality and flavor. Other clear ice machine brands reuse water run-off with inconsistent and sometimes cloudy results.
Marvel Engineering Director Jim Holland took the physics of ice melting into great consideration when developing the new line, “The ice shape is optimized to provide maximum cool down with minimum dilution. This was accomplished by utilizing a 3/4” cube to maximize the density of ice in the glass to cool the drink quicker, which minimizes melt.”
Other new features include multi-function Marvel Intuit Integrated Controls with intelligent settings and alarms to optimize production rates and ensure ice quality. A full-featured delayed start prevents wasteful water use and Eco Ice mode moderates ice production to a conservative rate to save 25% on utility bills.
And while it’s already the quietest clear ice machine brand, Marvel further improved sound suppression to make this new line of clear ice machines quieter than most dishwashers.
Finish options include stainless steel, black and overlay. Low profile, ADA height models are also available for universal design applications and areas with limited space or thick flooring.
