If you’ve ever lost two hours of your life scrolling through TikTok (just us?), you’ve likely come across a few items you didn’t know you needed. Consider, for example, the GE Profile Opal Countertop Ice Maker, which is $121 off for Cyber Monday 2021 (an even steeper discount than the previous Prime Day sale, FYI). We thought our plastic ice trays were fine and functional until we realized we could make nugget ice at home.
What’s nugget ice, you ask? It’s what TikTok-ers consider the superior ice, and you’ve probably experienced it if you’ve even eaten at a Chick-Fil-A or Sonic. Instead of hard ice cubes, nugget ice is made from compressed flakes of ice, so it’s smaller and much softer—some would say chewable (although our dentist would probably frown upon that).
