Domestic ice makers and freezers for foodstuff storage are made in a variety of sizes. Amongst the negligible is a 4l Pelletier fridge advertised as being clever to hold 6 cans of beer. A big domestic fridge stands as high as a person and may be on the subject of 1m wide with an ability of 600l. Some models for little households fit under kitchen employment surfaces, more often than not about 86cm high.

Fridges might be combined with freezers, moreover stacked with ice maker or freezer above, underneath, or side by side. A fridge without a true ice make may have a minute compartment to make ice. Freezers may have drawers to stock up food in, or they possibly will have no divisions (chest freezers). Fridges and ice makers may be self-supporting, or built hooked on a kitchen.

Compressor ice makers are by far the most ordinary type; they make an obvious noise. Absorption or Pelletier units are used where settle down running is required; Pelletier coolers are used in the smallest ice makers as they have no bulky mechanism.
Compressor and Pelletier refrigerators are always powered by electricity; amalgamation units can in principle be intended to be powered by any heat basis. Gas-only and dual power gas/electricity units are obtainable.

Icemakers are divided into two basic types; flex-tray and hard tray.


Flex-tray icemakers have a flexible plastic ice mold, or "tray," similar to manual ice molds. Also like manual molds, when it comes time to eject (harvest) the ice from the mold, it inverts and twists, "popping" out the ice. The tray then turns back upright and refills with water for the next freeze cycle.


Hard-tray icemakers have a metal ice mold which is coated with a non-stick coating. The ice mold remains upright, and cubes are ejected by some mechanical device which pushes the ice out of the mold and into the ice bin.
