Cleaning Your IcePlate: A Practical Guide

Keeping your IcePlate clean is simple and easy.  Here are a few helpful tips: Dishwasher Safe or Hand Wash IcePlate, including the hose and Bite Valve/Dust Cover Kit, are Dishwasher Safe.  Simply unscrew the cap (this can be stowed in the silverware compartment of your dishwasher) and place the IcePlate cap side down in the lower rack.  If your IcePlate includes our Quick Disconnect feature, the upper portion of the tube can be removed and placed in the top rack. Run the IcePlate through your normal wash and dry cycle.   Another option is to hand wash your IcePlate with a mild soap and water solution.  After filling your sink with hot soapy water, clean IcePlate with a non-scratch surface...

Purpose Built, Customer-Driven: The Design Evolution of IcePlate

Did you know the first "IcePlate" was nothing more than a coil of plastic tubing? It's true (here's the picture from our first Patent filing to prove it!)   We've come a long way since then, but IcePlate's central attributes have remained constant: it's Thin, Light, and Strong; it Drains, Stacks, and Hangs. Any chance we get to make IcePlate work better, we take it.

Even the name "IcePlate" itself came from an early customer....

With this first snow we realize winter is coming and just because it is cold outside doesn’t mean we stop hiking, camping, exploring, or working out in the cold. So that brings me to the point of this article, hypothermia. Let’s take a few minutes and talk about some ways...

Thermal Conductivity and the Qore Performance IcePlate

Grit and efficiency are my strongest core values.  I was taught from an early age to max out every day, accomplishing as much as possible - learning, working, and effecting positive change.  As a result, my life is extremely scheduled and carefully planned out.  What I eat, when I eat, how I work, when I work, the relationships I engage in, and the activities I spend time on are fairly strategic.  I never want my external environment to affect my ability to get $hit done.  In the winter, this is particularly tricky, as the weather is cold and lot of the boxes I need to check on a day-to-day basis still occur outside - commuting to work, walking the dog,...
