I love this ice maker. I bought it for our small office. I love that it recycles the unused ice cubes and starts up a fresh batch. It can be a little loud in close quarters, but doesn't last long. Very easy to clean, low maintenance. I can't really see a big difference in the two sizes, maybe thinner if anything. Otherwise, big thick bullet ice cubes each time. First batch is always small and thin, needs a minute to get cold enough to generate good ice cubes.

There's not a negative thing I can say about this great little device. My wife and I have well water--full of tannins, iron and who knows what--here in Southwest Florida and we weren't keen on the taste of it, in spite of our filtration system. Showering and running the dishwasher with it is one thing, but drinking it isn't an option. We have spring water delivered and had been buying ice at the local market. We noticed that when the ice in our drinks would melt, there would be a sediment of some kind--so, we decided to opt for ice made from the water that we know is pure and clean. That's where our little ice maker comes in. We absolutely love it, for it's diminutive size, efficiency and simplicity. I've got two other folks in my office on board to order one! My advice? GET IT!

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!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. I was beyond pleased with this Koldfront Ice Maker....It as been worth every penny I paid for it.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Everything that was posted about this product was right on the money, EXCEPT that it is better than expected.
The ice maker worked great for the first 3 months, and then quit making ice all together. We cleaned it out, tried all the suggestions the manufacturer recommended and still nothing. Very disappointed as we bought this to use while we're camping and now we have to hunt for another one.
We live in a small apartment, and of course our fridge doesn't have a ice maker. I was so tired of buying bags of ice, that I decided to look for a counter top ice maker. I came across this and for the price figured I would give it a try. I love it. We have a small kitchen so it is a bit bulky, but other then the size it is awesome.
We have owned and used this product daily for 6 months. Honestly, we love having a countertop ice maker! It has served us well for 6 months. But, for the price I paid, I definitely didn't expect it to be acting up already! Fortunately we purchased the 2 year warranty because it is already in need of repairs. Hopefully, repairs/replacements will be easy.
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.
Does this machine require a hose, or do you fill with water as needed?
Does the water need to be drained daily?

Fill as needed....don't need to drain daily....ice usually uses up all the water.....we do drain if we are going to unplug for an extended period of time.westie0506 on Dec 18, 2013
You add water directly into a reservoir, and I leave the water left with no problems.dinky111 on Feb 8, 2014
