Welcome to my site dedicated to the infamous and relatively unknown Crosley IcyBall. I’m sure you are asking “What is a Crosley IcyBall”? It is an ammonia absorption refrigerator that was used in the late 1920’s & early 1930’s for homeowners that did not have electricity.
I’ve always been fascinated by non-electric refrigeration such as natural gas or propane refrigerators. My interest in Crosley IcyBalls is not as old as my original interest in non-electric refrigeration because honestly, until a few months ago, I had no idea what a Crosley IcyBall was!
IcyBalls are now popular with doomsday preppers, survivalists, campers & off-grid homesteaders. See my site for a history of Crosley IcyBalls plus photos & links to show you how to build your own Crosley IcyBall.
