It has come to my attention that DR is lacking something I can provide. I have notice that whenever I want ice for my drink it using involves someone bringing out a bowl of frozen water and beating away at it until you get pieces of ice that are small enough to fit in the glass. In my house this usually involves the person grabbing my good knives and chipping away at the ice. Out of 8 knives I have only one left with a point on it. I have also seen people use a hammer or furiously beating the bowl of ice on the countertop. So I have realized that no one knows what an ice cube tray is and Im going to import them and start selling. Disclaimer: This is a sarcastic post :cheeky:

A friend of mine went into the bagged ice business in the tropics. Made about $200/week net bagging ice into ten pound bags. The main prob in the DR is needing potable water. You always want two machines because they break down often, then a chest freezer for vending.

Buying a machine is way more complicated than I thought.. There are numerous shapes of ice "engineered" for different purposes. Restaurants use lens shaped ice so they need less soda to fill a glass and ice vendors often sell round tubes of ice to make the ten pound bags bigger. Square cubes are the easiest to produce.

For now, wouldn't it be better ... and more profitable ... to just sell more knives? :laugh:

Ice cube trays will never work. Requires that you pour water into all those little holes. No Dominican will ever do it.

Ice changes potable water into portable water!

In defense of Dumbinicans, a large block of ice will survive a blackout, cubes not so much. There is no excuse for using good knives.

We let them play with machetes and steak knives already. A little ol ice pick doesn't concern any more than those.

How about selling ice picks instead? They can also be used as a weapon.
