Retro Ice-O-Mat Ice Crusher

R320.00

I think you’ll probably find that in America and the UK these vintage ice crushers are a dime a dozen, but back home we really don’t see them for sale very often at all. I was lucky enough to find one a few months back, but before that I think it had probably been a good few years since I’d found one in decent enough condition to justify buying!

The ice-cube crusher made its debut in the homes of Americans in 1938 when the Kansas City-based Rival Corporation brought out their Ice-O-Mat! Looking at the style of today’s olive green version I’d guess that this was one of their slightly later models – possibly dating to the late 1960s. Manual ice crushers eventually gave way to electric versions, but I’m sure that none of them could compete in looks with the style of the vintage versions – they’re just such great looking bar accessories!

Note: Today’s Ice-O-Mat is in good overall condition, with only minor signs of wear. It sits very comfortably on a table, but if you want to mount it to clear some counter space (or just because it’ll look cool!) it does still have its original wall mount

Dimensions: 24cm tall x 11.5cm wide x 10cm deep

Please note that we’re away until the 16th December so there will unfortunately be a delay in the couriering of items
