We advise you to buy silicone ice buckets, since rigid ice buckets tend to be more delicate and break and deteriorate more quickly. Although they are a little more expensive, invest in silicone ones because they can be handled without breaking and they tolerate the passage of time better.
Also pay attention to the size of the ice bucket you select, since it will be taking up space in the freezer and it must fit perfectly, to prevent it from moving more than necessary and its contents spilling all over the interior of the appliance. Try to make the holes large and square so they have greater filling capacity.
