In order to make the benefits of using the Ice
Appliance more accessible to a larger number of people, HappyHill
SpringWorks is now offering an Ice Appliance with a plastic case. By using
the plastic case there is a substantial reduction in the amount of labor
involved in building the Ice Appliance and I am therefore able to reduce its
cost. This makes it much easier for multiple members of the family to
obtain and reap the benefits of continued use of the Ice Appliance. Each
and every appliance is hand made by me in my shop. The Economical Ice
Appliance (IAP) has the same central core composed of high carbon steel
separated by two pieces of glass and surrounded on all sides by ¼” thick
carbon plate that the copper casing Ice Appliance (IA) contains. It also
shares the same hand ground, chemical free, natural hardwood charcoal that
goes in the copper casing. The wires and literature for each appliance
the same. The only difference between the two appliances and what you
receive with them is the (IAP) has a plastic case made out of white
HDPE 2 plastic and the core and ground charcoal are sealed with hot melt
glue and mildew resistant white silicone while the (IA) has a copper case
sealed with canning wax and topped with a high strength 3m epoxy resin.
Much, much, more labor is required to build the (IA) with the copper casing
and thus its higher cost. The Economical Ice Appliance is also good
for a lifetime of use. Buy it with confidence.
The new IAP casing has a 20 oz. capacity, therefore it has
much more of the ground charcoal surrounding the central core than the
previous casing which had a 16 oz. capacity.
