An ice bucket is a container used to hold ice and keep beverages cold. It is usually made of plastic, metal, or glass and has an insulated lining to keep the ice from melting quickly. The lid of the bucket helps to retain the cold temperature and prevent ice from spilling.
Ice buckets come in various sizes and designs and are commonly used in households, bars, and restaurants. They are also frequently used for entertaining, as a way to serve drinks on ice. Some ice buckets also come with tongs, which allow you to pick up ice cubes without touching them with your hands.
