What is the development history of the ice maker
Before the invention of the ice maker factory, without refrigeration technology, people in ancient times wanted to store food in their own underground cellars in winter, and moved blocks of ice to the cellars in the frozen rivers. The food to be preserved is placed in the ice cellar to achieve the purpose of keeping the food fresh. However, there is more snow in the north. In the subtropical areas of the south, there is no ice and snow 365 days a year. It is conceivable that it was more difficult to preserve food for longer periods in the south.

The inventor of the ice machine is Dr. John Gory of the United States. Dr. John Gorrie is a doctor, scientist, inventor, and humane self-righteous. He showed the ice machine to the world in 1851 and obtained the design patent of the ice machine, although Dr. Gorri never made the ice machine Used in business, but he is still considered the father of refrigeration. In addition, he invented the air cooling system for Florida hospitals. However, Dr. Gory is not the only inventor of the ice machine. In 1853, Downing Alexander and James Harrison of Australia in 1855 were also the inventors of the ice machine. These two inventors also obtained relevant information about the ice machine. Technology patents. Thaddeus Lowe invented the first commercial ice machine in 1866 and used it in commerce. This was the first ice machine used in commercial production.

Ice making technology was invented in the middle of the 19th century. After that, after technological development and improvement by different people in different countries, household refrigerators began to appear and replaced the old-fashioned ice boxes, but there was no refrigerating room in the early household refrigerators. Until the 1920s, household refrigerators began to be widely used in the West. Freezers and ice cube trays were gradually added to new refrigerators, so that people could make ice cubes at home.

Servel first introduced a built-in ice maker refrigerator in 1953. The technology gradually evolved from manual filling of water to the hook, to connecting the water pipe in the house to the ice maker to automatically make ice. By the end of the 1960s, built-in ice machines in refrigerators had become commonplace.

The indoor refrigerator discharged by Polaris in 1965 can be equipped with a water dispenser so that ice and water can be automatically distributed without manual switch equipment for distribution. By 1985, the ice maker had improved the storage equipment in the refrigerator so that it could store up to 12 pounds of ice.


Nowadays, people buy free-standing ice machines and bar table ice machines on the market. It takes at least 10 minutes to produce small ice cubes. Of course, this is a fully automatic ice production and does not require manual operation.
