GE Opal Countertop Ice Maker
From time to time major appliance brands come up with new cutting edge products that can be used when camping. This week GE through their new venture called “First Build” rolled out their new counter top ice making machine for your home called the “Opal”. But this ice making machine is small enough to fit in your RV or trailer camper. You can even pack it in tent camping gear and take it along as long as your camp site has electrical power or you have a generator. I am not sure if a solar power generator can generate enough current to power the Opal. I hope some early adapter will purchase one and try it out using solar power.
From the Opal website: “Opal makes the chewable, crunchable, flavor-saving nugget ice you love. Estimated Delivery Late Fall 2016.
PRE-ORDER PRICE: $449.00

If it had not been for the CNN Money article today, I would not have known about “First Build” or the “Opal”. Click HERE for the CNN Money article. First Build sound like a great GE venture. I am sure there will be many outdoor recreation enthusiast who will become members and submit ideas for cutting edge outdoor recreation appliances.
Until next time, be safe in the sun and have a great day in the great outdoors.
