The Best Ice Scraper

We polled you guys for your favorite ice scrapers — thanks! — then used that info to winnow down the field to 16 top contenders. After 15 hours of research and clearing ice attacks during Polar Vortex single-digit temps, our pick is the Hopkins 14039 Sub Zero Extendable 50" Crossover Snow Broom ($25).


It has deep, ice-scoring teeth and and an adjustable, ergonomic handle that helped it clear an iced window almost twice as quickly as the average scraper. And while it's a beast at scraping ice, its plastic design keeps it gentle on the paint compared to less effective brass competition.

For a great option for larger vehicles and a handy emergency scraper that fits in your glove box, check out our full guide.
