My refrigerator ice maker couldn't keep up with the ice my family goes through in a day. Since we purchased the portable ice maker we hardly even use the one in the fridge. this little machine can keep up with the families ice demand.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
How is the quality of the product? great, better than I expected
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
This is a great product. Worth the bucks. We are a business and purchased this product because we share a kitchen with other offices. We each have our own refrigerator, but none of them have ice makers, and we do a lot of catered events. Unfortunately, purchasing an icemaker for the freezer of the refrigerator and installing a water line was not possible. This icemaker was the perfect solution!
I bought one of these for my sister who telecommutes. She had to go downstairs every time she wanted ice. It is in her her home office and she loves it.
When I took a new job they didn't have ice in the offive fridge. I am an ice freak(I use it all of the time) and I didn't hesitate to order one to share with my office mates.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was accurate

I purchased this ice machine in July 2014 and it stopped making ice. I purchased the two year warranty so I called the company to find out what they would do. I was asked some technical questions, then sent an email which required me to take the machine apart and check for various things that may be broken. I'm not a mechanic, nor do I have alot of extra time to be messing with this but I did it. Nothing was wrong that I could see. When I called back I was told I could ship it back to them at my expense, probably $50, and they would fix it and return it in about 2-3 weeks. Having only used it for a few months I think it should have been replaced and broken one returned at their expense. I have purchased countertop ice makers in the past and they last upwards of 3 years. Dont buy this brand.
This is very very noisy. Do no use over night in a small house or apartment, it will wake you up every 30-40 minutes. It makes less ice than expected and will not be enough for a small party of more than 6 guests.
Received the unit and followed the simple but semi-lacking instructions. Once I plugged it on it started its whirling and whining (Little louder than you might expect) and i waited the 10-14 minutes for my first batch then another 15 minutes then 30 minutes more and no ice produced. I noticed the cheap plastic computer cooling fan wasn't working but still not sure if that was why it wasn't working. Basically it didn't work.
Called their customer service but they are west coast and only work Mon thru Friday. Long story short I will be returning to Overstock and looking for something else.
I didn't realize that I would have to babysit it to make sure to empty it so often. It works really well according to the instructions. It will fill a small cooler in about six hours. Not sure what I was expecting.

Does this maker keep finished ice cubes frozen in the machine or do they have to be transferred to a freezer?hand7 on Apr 21, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The unit's wall is insulated, but unit does not produce any cold air to keep the ice frozen. The ice basket does sit right above the water reservoir, so as the ice melts, water is dripped back into the tank to be reused.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 23, 2012
