I am so happy that I purchased this product!! My husband wanted to purchase a new refridgerator/freezer with an ice maker so he could have all the ice he ever wanted when he wanted it. This little machine saved us that expense, which would have involved plumbing costs as well!! He says I need to say it does all it was supposed to do and more!! We are very happy with this item--the ice is made quickly, and I empty it often so the cubes stay dry. If left in the basket, they will begin to melt as this is NOT a freezer unit, only an ice maker. I bag the ice as it is made, and we make ice maybe twice a week. Love this!!

This makes ice in 8 minutes. small amount but adds up fast. If it was a freezer instead of just refrigerated it would be fantastic . Ice melts and remakes. I put the ice in the freezer.

I purchased this product to use in my business tea room. I am not going to use alot of ice, but will need glasses of ice from time to time for Iced tea when I Have orders for it. So I wanted a compact, out of the way, on the shelf Ice maker. This one came with good reviews and it seems simple enough. IT IS WONDERFUL!!!! My 18 year old wants to take one of them to college now. LOL. I would say the only hard part is keeping up with putting it in the freezer. I have noticed that the bag seems to form a lump and you have to keep breaking the ice apart. BUT that is fine with us due to the fact that the sound is so quiet, and the ice is just the right size to fit into water bottles for on the go and the sizes are really good. I would suggest this Ice maker to anyone who wants to have ice at will and don't mind having to empty the basket every 20 minutes to freeze it. LOVE my Koldfront compact ice maker! I bought TWO!

After a very disappointing run with the Koldfront portable ice maker - I had three of them die on me within a month of service, and very bad experiences with their customer service, Overstock allowed me to return and refund the Koldfront machine so I could purchase another brand. I selected this model due to the ratings and increased capacity over the other available models. I have now had this unit for about a month and am totally in love! It reliably makes more ice than my family can use. It is attractive on the counter. Only cons, not that I'm complaining, are that the compressor is very loud, and there are some sharp edges on the metal housing around the back that can cut your skin while moving the unit if handled from the back or bottom. A pair of gloves would be recommended while unpacking and positioning the unit to avoid potential to cut yourself on these edges. The company should smooth out those edges, but they are not in areas where they will present a problem once the unit is in service. Highly recommend this unit. The higher price is worth it for the higher ice production, reliability, and slick look to the unit on the counter.

Great ice maker. Perfect for home or RV. Just wish it kept ice colder after making. Must be transferred to freezer or cooler.

This ice maker is perfect for a small space. I have only a kitchenette and this fits just fine on my counter top and doesn't take up much room. It makes ice pretty fast. I don't have a freezer to save ice, so I make ice everyday. My grandchildren love the "cute" ice cubes.

This machine has paid for itself already with the ice we make and use. Love the fact that it makes ice so fast when the need arises and you havent kept up with your ice needs.

The cubes are small and it does make alot of ice. U have to get used to the noise. Smaller than my last ice machine. Does its job.

We bought this for a party so we wouldn't run out of ice. It is awesome. Makes alot of ice quickly with no mess. It fits on counter no problem and is fairly quiet when on. It is my husbands favorite new kitchen toy. I would totally recommend this to anyone looking for a small ice maker. The one draw back is that the ice maker doesn't keep ice cold in its machine.

I love my little ice maker. I love that when I'm making dinner I can just turn the machine on and by the time I'm done I can have myself a glass of Ice with my drink. The only thing I don't like is that the ice melts if you don't use it fast enough.

Best gift ever. Mom has set this up in her kitchen and fills her ice bin about once a week. Ice is made quickly and the machine turns itself off is there is not enough water or the ice bin is full. It just doesn't get any easier. This little machine has more than paid for itself already in bags of ice not purchased. I read some reviews where people claimed the machine was noisy. I disagree ... it whirrs a little when filling with water and you can hear when the ice is realeased into the empty bin, but it's neither loud nor distracting. We love this ice maker.

One of the best purchases I ever made. Set-up was easy. I am an ice lover and use a lot of it every day. Since I don't have an ice maker on my refrigerator I was buying bags of ice, several every week. With this machine I just make a couple of Ziploc bags of ice and then turn it off until I need to refill. The size is uniform and I find it very quiet.

I love this little icemaker. I have a smaller refrigerator, and I didn't add the ice maker because one of the most frequent and most expensive service calls is ice maker repairs. This machine fills the gap. While it doesn't make a lot of ice quickly, it makes plenty for my purposes and no more trips to the store for bagged ice. If you don't ask too much of it, it's a great buy.

I didn't want to pay a huge amount of money on one of these. I also was worried to pick up the sometimes offer of refurbished. Sometimes those work out sometimes not. This provided an option and I went for it a decent price as these items go and not as heavy or big as some of it's similar sisters/brothers out there. This one is under 30 pounds and I can manage it on the go. I bought it to be able to make ice to keep our coolers in ice while camping and on the road. As it makes up to 10 pounds or more over night. Now the cube sizes aren't all that selective. And they are quite similar in size with little difference but I'm after the ice. I wish it made solid cubes but none do that I looked at anyway. Also if you are in a humid area the ice seems to melt quicker than when it's drier air. So living mostly in the Northwest this is a rare issue for us. It doesn't get a lot of use just seasonal. Also we purchased a portable freezer that Overstock sells too from Overstock because you could get the warranty. I did not buy the warranty for this item. The freezer being roughly 4 times more expensive I did. It's now 1.5 years later and no problem as of yet. We camp with others with campers so often have power to keep it making ice. Can make ice in a motel room too. And with our portable freezer we could keep ice made with this frozen for cooler giving a day or two off from need to make more. But turns out we are using the freezer more often as a fridge. Who knew. I think overall this is a nice less heavy ice maker that does the job we expect from it and so happy campers. I'd like to plug it into the car 12Volt system and need to see if that's possible at some time. It might be or might not be as they make all sorts of gadgets that allow you to do that sort of thing safely. The portable freezer came with both cords to do just that.

Works great. I'm thrilled to use it at our lake cabin as a store for ice is quite a jaunt away. Takes longer to make ice than stated, but still it makes it within 30min. I would recommend this machine.

I love this little machine!! It is a lot faster than expected and does a great job after the first "batch". The first ice cubes that are made come out small and thin. Afterwards, the ice cubes come out the way they are suppose to. I would recommend this to a friend.

The icemaker on our four-year-old French door Samsung refrigerator stopped working along with the introduction of several new problems with the fridge that we had to have repaired at a hefty cost. These issues went on for almost three months. During part of that time we were getting bagged ice from our corner store which didn't last for more than a couple of days in our cooler. (We're in Florida and even with AC it's hot here in August and September!) I originally saw this icemaker in an RV magazine and decided it would fit the purpose to give us ice as well as provide more ice later if we had company and the icemaker in the fridge couldn't keep up. Well, the refrigerator is now repaired but the cost replacing the fridge icemaker was beyond what I wanted to spend. So, this portable Koldfront icemaker has been the perfect answer and we'll look to be using it for quite some time. Other people in other reviews have complained it is noisy but it's really not that loud and only if you are standing right next to it in the kitchen do you even hear it most of the time except when the new ice is released to the bin. And it is no louder than the icemaker was in the fridge and I also have better things to do than stand around in the kitchen listening to the icemaker! It is "portable" but it's not extremely light in weight so I would consider that once you get it placed on your counter or in your RV that's where it is going to stay.

We bought this for an RV. It is a bit heavy, but it does what it is supposed to do. The price was excellent and it arrived quickly. The first batch of ice cubes are a bit small but within minutes they are solid. It just takes the machine a few minutes to get cold, but then it just hums right along. There are much fancier units out there, but this one does exactly what we wanted which is make ice! Very pleased,

This is my second try at a ice machine the first one didn't very long and could not find anyone local to work on it so I am trying a different brand this time. I'm loving the new one lets see how long it can keep up with my ice demand.
