I use this one:

I've been using the same model since 1997 but buy new ones every few years. This model may cost more than others to use but it's strong. If you want a cheaper de-icer (as for electricity), get one of a smaller wattage and put an air stone underneath it. Air stones really help keep holes open.

Kevin, I use the same one for my ponds I get them from Tractor Supply for $29.99, the only difference is the color, mine are blue & they work well.
