These are the solutions from Lidl and El Corte Inglés to make ice cubes at home

Life never stops surprising us with things that we would never have thought to see in real life. Because after the crisis of toilet paper, flour and yeast experienced in the hardest part of confinement due to covid, or more recently the lack of oil that we experienced a few months ago, now it’s time for ice cube crisis.

As our colleagues from Directo al Paladar have explained, in the coming weeks our country may experience a lack of ice cubes that will affect restaurants and hotels, fairs and festivals in cities such as Malaga or Huesca, but also ordinary citizens. In fact, if you have gone shopping at the supermarket, chains such as Mercadona or Consum have already limited sales to a few bags per person.

Luckily, and to solve this problem if you like to have your drink or drink at home, or if you have to organize a birthday party with friends or a barbecue at home with the family, we have been looking for several options of machines to make homemade ice cubes


In El Corte Inglés we have found a Taurus ice cube machine, the MG12 Legend. This machine will allow you to obtain your first ice cubes in just 15 minutes. If you put it at full capacity, you can prepare 0.63 kg of ice per hour, being able to reach 15 kg of ice in 24 hours. The device has a digital LCD screen with acoustic warning for lack of water in the tank, and costs 259 euros.
