My fiance insists that I declutter our freezer so that our ice maker can do its job. But I haven't been able to do so. While looking at end of year best lists, a blog mentioned this small counter top ice maker with rave reviews from other sites. And it does exactly what it says, quick turn around on ice cubes within minutes (depending on the ambient temperature).
The machine is about the size of a bread maker and though it would fit on the counter top, it is large and rather bulky. It is a really simple machine and thus easy to use. Plug in, fill with water, select ice cube size and push power button. In about 15 minutes, you'll have your first batch of ice. It makes an incredible amount of ice with just one water filled tank.
The ice does come out kind of wet. However, if you place it into a bag and into the freezer for later use, it is perfect. There is really no "off" button, so I typically unplug it when I am not actively making ice. It does not refrigerate newly made ice but the insulation of the machine may keep it coolish over some time; however it will melt and the water will be recycled to make new ice. From that standpoint, it does not work like your fridge ice maker.
Overall, this is a really good price for the product. The bright red reminds me of old fashioned Coca-Cola coolers without the insignia. The machine looks well made and after several uses, there have been no problems. Other reviewers suggested that the machine sit for two hours to let the refrigerant settle before making your first batch of ice. O.com packed it well and it was delivered in a timely manner.
I'm excited about the party potential of this machine. And when there are no parties, my Vitamix will be happy to have more ice.
Purchased for a rv where space is premium. It makes ice quickly, quietly and cleans easily. The cubes are hollow which melt quicker than solid ice. This ice-maker does not have a freezer container to store ice; so the ice will melt eventually. There is an interior sensor which shuts off ice production once the ice container freezes about 6-7 c of ice. If you need ice for a long period of time, you will have to bag it and store in a freezer. If you are aware of its limitations; this is a wonderful accessory for your rv freezer which does not have an ice-maker.
We fish alot. Now there is no reason to buy ice. Just start it, put it in a bag in your freezer . Keep adding to the bag till you get all you need. Always stay ahead of your fishing trips.Great way to save your money... Love it
Pro it does make ice Every 6 min
Con it is only 7 pieces at a time.
This does add up pretty quickly though.
It is very stylish, I think it good for the price. One thing I was disappointed in, was the fact I enquired if it made clear ice. I was told that it does. Actually as a matter of fact I does not make clear ice.

Does the machine only work when plugged in? Will it work, say, when I am at a picnic? Or out having a BBQ?ccancer703 on Aug 6, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Is the section where the ice dumps cooled by any other source other than the ice it makes? Meaning is the ice dump section like a little freezer, so that it will keep the ice hard?promolady on Nov 18, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi promolady, This ice-maker is not insulated and is not a small freezer, if you need to keep your ice frozen for an extended amount of time you will need to remove the ice and place it into a freezer. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 27, 2013
