If you consider yourself an ice connoisseur, you’re not alone. In fact, there’s a whole community on TikTok that stands by #TheGoodIce, referring to small, chewable nuggets of frozen water that absorb the flavors of your drink and somehow make whatever bev you’re sipping taste better. It’s the kind of ice you might find at a restaurant that plastic and silicone ice molds just can’t replicate. Luckily, the best machine to make these frozen gems—the GE Profile Opal ice maker—is discounted for Amazon Prime Day 2, an epic two-day sale that begins on October 10 at 3 a.m. EDT and runs through October 11. It’s one of many Early Prime Big Deal Days that you can snag before the event kicks off.

While this particular kind of ice has been around for a while, the reason it’s popping up everywhere is because people have realized that you can make nugget ice at home with the help of this wonder machine, which is now $64 off in the color Stainless Steel. That’s an impressive discount for a device that can produce up to 24 pounds of nugget ice per day.

Not only is this machine considered the most beloved ice maker on the market, but it’s also known amongst TikTokkers as one of the coolest gifts. We have to agree—did you see how drool-worthy Ice T’s iced tea looked?!

And remember how we said it makes your drinks taste better? It turns out that there’s a scientific reason behind that. According to the craft cocktail experts at A Bar Above, nugget ice is made from flaked ice that’s been compacted into nuggets, creating pellets containing a lot of air. The airy composition makes each pellet chewable yet crunchy (your teeth will thank you), plus allows your beverage to penetrate the ice.

Bottom line? The GE Profile Opal Nugget ice maker keeps ice lovers happy—and you can get it on the cheap if you buy now.
