Ice owes its cooling properties to the large amount of heat required to melt it. 2. Concreted sugar. --Johnson. 3. Water, cream, custard, etc., sweetened, flavored, and artificially frozen. 4.

Ice house, a close-covered pit or building for storing ice. Ice machine (Physics), a machine for making ice artificially, as by the production of a low temperature through the sudden expansion of a gas or vapor, or the rapid evaporation of a volatile liquid. Ice master. See Ice pilot (below). Ice pack, an irregular mass of broken and drifting ice. Ice paper, a transparent film of gelatin for copying or reproducing; papier glac['e]. Ice petrel (Zo["o]l.), a shearwater (Puffinus gelidus) of the Antarctic seas, abundant among floating ice. Ice pick, a sharp instrument for breaking ice into small pieces.
