We weren’t sure about this as a Father’s Day gift but it has been a huge success. It was making ice just minutes out of the box!
Works great, easy to use and it’s not that noisy. The only thing I wish it had was a drain plug on the bottom that could be unplugged to let any excess water out, as the unit doesn’t make ice out of every drop. Would still highly recommend.

Received it and let it sit upright unplugged for 24 hours before I used it as I do with all refrigerate products. Powered it up following evening and fill to the line with distilled water and set to small. After few minutes it produced some ice cones, first few where ultra small as it was getting to temp. After the third dispense it was perfect size and in less than an hour basket was full and when it’s full it pauses until ya dump it, which is great. Great product made 22-26 pounds of ice in 10-12 hours

Our other brand, fridgeair kept breaking, went through 2 in a year. However it wasn’t because it was cheap, I left it on 24/7 making ice for a family of 4. This will probably suffer the same fate, but it is more quiet and quicker than the other similar model.
Debby Mochwart –
icemaker on our fridge has broken twice due to computer pieces fritzing – we have given up and decided to buy this countertop icemaker. I make it – then toss it into the freezer’s ice bin and use it until its gone and make more. very easy to use. you literally turn it on, pour in water and select cub size and let it do it’s thing. i wish it kept the ice cooler while making……and that it had a cleaning option. But hey – for the price this works well and has helped me out of a jam. Don’t want to run around buying ice when we are supposed to stay home 🙂 problem solved!
Yes it makes a little noisy, but it is not obnoxiously loud. The machine is very easy to use and clean. I have used it for trips and gathering. So far I’m satisfied with my purchase.
This has been the funnest thing to add to our home bar. It is also good to keep in the camper and use for parties. We have really enjoyed it !

Love the ease of use and small counter footprint. Red is beautiful. I use filtered water but it’s not necessary. You can open and grab ice before the basket is full, so you can have cubes for one drink in 9 minutes. The cubes (large and small) fit into a typical water bottle opening. You can leave cubes in basket and machine will keep them frozen, but not frozen forever. After a few hours the cubes will melt into reservoir and refreeze into new cubes.
Charles and Sharon Johnson –
Great product … no more buying ice from 711. The unit is quiet and makes 2 different size ice cubes. The smaller cubes fits in our water bottles perfectly.
This is perfect for what we needed it for. Ice maker on our fridge broke. This machine makes ice quickly and is a great replacement!
jamie austin –
Bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas and we all love it! Makes ice pretty quickly! We kept it going and filled up bags of ice! Super cool buy!
LaDonna Shadlow –
This was a gift for my mother but she reports it works great and she loves it. I did think the ice would be large pellets but they are instead round cubes. Still, she loves it and it works well and fast!
Annmarie Trace –
My friend has this same one and absolutely loves it and has had no problems with it. I had to return mine as it would not fit on my counter because my cupboards are not high enough.
Rita Lauer –
Had issue with it when I opened the box n started it rite away, it started smoking, n an wasnt working, wasn’t making the ice, if anyone is having issues w that turn it off n let it sit for a few hrs or a day, thinking when I got it all the free-on wasn’t were it should have been when I first started it, n when I took it out to do a video for the company I didn’t have any issues w it, everything worked, I had it sitting back in the box for a few days and now its working perfectly, so if anyone has an issue w theirs to just let it sit for a few hrs or a day for it to settle from the moving around, I just love this sooo very much thank u
Makes plenty of chewable ice. Spits out cubes every 5 minutes. When basket full, I just dump in my frig ice maker basket. I have turned off the frig ice maker. I have had about a month.
Love this ice maker…my indoor ice maker in my fridge broke…this is great.. makes ice quickly. It’s quiet. Makes either small or large cubes….couldn’t be happier!
Kelly McKenzie –
I’ve had this countertop ice maker a couple of weeks now and I LOVE it. I always have ice when I want it. The large size ice is perfect. It’s quiet. It’s so much better than the crappy ice maker in my fridge. I go through a lot of ice so this is the best thing ever.
MIke Q’s old school music –
just got it and it makes ice fast and keeps making ice until it fills the basket an then it stops and keeps ice cool.

I purchased this little counter top Icemaker for my mother( she does not have one in her freezer ) she’s had it for about a year now and it still working great!! just make sure you keep water in it that’s about it good product and good quality.
Caren Shivel –
This little counter top ice maker is FANTASTIC! I was leery of something do small. It begins producing ice so quickly and keeps producing it about every 6-7 minutes. It’s amazing. While the ice doesn’t stay well frozen in the maker, if you empty it when it’s full is great!Definetly a good buy!!!
Got to use distilled water for best results. Now there is always ice ready to be used. Doesn’t take up much room. Glad I bought it.
Randy Jackson –
We purchased this for our trailer. it makes plenty of ice. i have had it for 4 months now, still works great.
Eddean Ballard –
I really like that you can keep it plugged in and it keeps refilling ice or you can freeze the ice in a regular freezer and disconnect the unit till you need it again…. Makes really cool ice cubes
I disinfected the ice machine, added water, and set it up per instructions. I used ice-cold water and the Large setting, and my first batch of ice was ready in just a few minutes. Really neat. The unit is quite loud in operation, akin to a hair dryer on low setting. But I’m going to keep it under a counter so it won’t really matter long term. I’m also going to use filtered water, as I know the hard water from my city would cause buildup.For a first usage, this machine is tremendous. I’ll try to update if I have any issues, but I’m going to allow the unit to go through its first fill of water as a cleaning cycle before I make use of the ice. So far, so good.
We turned our ice machine off in our fridge and only use this ice. It makes bullet ice cubes. We love it. We run the machine every other day. It makes ice in about 7 minutes. I used a gallon of water throughout the day and it makes all day long! Best purchase ever!
Compact design, easy set up and clean, the stopper at the bottom to drain the water when done is very helpful and easily accessible. Makes ice pretty quickly too. I got this to replace the broken ice maker in my fridge and it worms well for that. But the machine itself doesn’t keep the ice cold enough to keep it from melting so make sure to put the ice in your freezer.
At first it worked great. Then about 20 days in the ice was melting. I contacted the vendor and ZERO response. I had already purchased a 2nd one for a friend too. Then after 30 days you can’t return it.The issue is it doesn’t keep ice frozen. Also, when it runs out of water, you have to turn it off and on for it to recognize it’s full again. Great machine if it worked correctly and TERRIBLE customer Service. BUYER BEWARE!
I never post negative reviews but I want to warn people. I ordered this ice maker which looked so nice. It didn’t work. I tried everything suggested and was on multiple phone calls with customer service who at the time was very responsive. They asked me to send them a video of it not working. I felt warm air and no ice was made. A couple weeks later a new ice maker came. I was so excited to finally have ice. That day ice was made. By the next morning all of the ice was melted and no new ice was made. Hot air was coming out of the fan. I tried letting it rest a few days to see if that worked but I could not get it working. I called customer service on two separate times to work with me and have yet to receive a call back. I am really disappointed in this product. Im going back to using old fashioned ice cube trays I guess. One star is only because the color red is cool
Rodney D. Feltman –
My daughter wanted an ice maker for her college apartment. It seems to work great, she tells me it stays full of ice and had not failed once. So I’d say this is a good product and worth the price.EDIT – So after 6 months oil (or some time of brown liquid) started to leak into the Ice chamber. When I contacted the warranty dept. they had me send pictures and a video etc…which is fine….BUT they would not fix or replace the unit….they would give me a 50% refund….that is crazy!!! Oh and by the way I even paid for an extended warranty form Allstate….what a joke, they just told me it’s still under manufactures warranty…I have to go back to them!!!! Last appliance I am every ordering from Amazon!!!!!
Georgeann Perez –
It stopped working. I bought insurance for it and they said since it was less than 1yr that I had to file a claim with the manufacturer. There is no website, no phone number, no customer service. I will have to wait till it is a year old to file a claim with the insurance I already paid for. Not worth the hassle.
michelle pickett –
We bought a new fridge without really noticing there was no ice maker and this little guy has picked up the slack. Makes ice pretty quick and you can change the size of the cubes to your taste.
Karl Walter –
Didn’t know how it would work but we followed the directions and the ice maker was cranking out ice within 10-15 minutes. Have used it maybe 3-4 times so far and just bag up what comes out and stick it in the freezer for later.
Kindle Customer –
1/3 of the cost of fancy one I was looking at. Great little ice maker!Pros:Freshest ice, (whiter cubes), fun to chew.Makes ice quickly.Great for super cold ice water in my water bottle.Cons:Ice melts a little too fast for large glass of soda.Occasionally (briefly) a little noisy.

Love it! Could have some changes done to make a bit better but over all great ice maker! I also forgot to say in my video that it dosnt keep the ice cold! So if u shit it off cause it’s full or something they will just melt n u will have to turn it back on n re make them! Or make them n save in freezer idk! Or just make them as u need them like we do! The do stay frozen for a bit tho!
John & Manuela –
What a great find! I waited a long time before buying a portable ice maker. Really happy with this one. I was never a fan of ice at all, really, I hated how ice would change the flavor of things I was drinking. We bought this one after a lot of research and fellow RVer’s recommendations. We do like the portability of this one! When out in our TT (travel trailer) we can make ice and take it into the house when home. Few thoughts on making ice:1). Have patience, the first or second drops of ice will be smaller than later on.2) Use as clean water as possible for best results. We take the water from our dispenser and run it through a Brita filer pitcher.3) place the unit is as open a space as possible, there are two vents you need to keep clear of. (Intake and a warm discharge)4) let it work with out opening and removing ice.5) the basket holds a lot of ice, the smaller beginners will melt back into the water tank6) One tank of water will make about (depending on your choice of ice size) 2-3 gallon zip bags of iceEnjoy it, we have!
Once you get past the new plastic taste by running several quarts of vinegar water through the system it is surprisingly very good. It produces plenty of ice in a short time. I’m well pleased with this purchase.
Bought after my ice maker on fridge wouldn’t work. Cheaper that a new fridge and satisfies my need. Doesn’t take long to make ice. I don’t use it at night because it does make noise when dropping the ice
Kaylee Grady –
I bought my mother in law one for mothers day because she had an icemaker that broke a long time ago, i loved hers so much I bought myself one. Then, I bought my dad one whose addicted to eating ice. The flavor is honestly impeccable & the ice bells are so soft and easy on your teeth if you’ve also got a bad habit of eating it. It’s the closest thing to “whole shaved ice” . I love mine, it’s definitely worth the money and infact not nearly as expensive as most.
Heather A –
I like how easy this is to use. Can make a good amount of ice in under an hour. The ice tastes good and has no weird flavor. I’d been eating and using a lot of ice since getting this machine.
Perfect for on the counter. Can be put away when not in use. It makes ice quickly and all you do is add the water. Love it!
Jamie Miles (and Mr. Otis) –
I really like this machine. I keep it out on my back porch and it is perfect. It maintains the frozen ice for the most part come out perfect for a small barbecue. Always making ice.
Allison in Arizona –
I’m in love with this little machine! I downsized to an apartment and missed the built in ice maker fridge like crazy. My hands just couldn’t stand making ice in old school trays. And then I discovered this! Great price, great quality, very quiet, and doesn’t take up a ton of counter space.
Carlos R. –
This little thing works fantastic we had friends over enjoying some adult beverages.Simply fill with water and a few minutes later ICE!Great for gatherings and keeps up producing ice.I wouldn’t recommend for larger gatherings of 6 or more guessing on the consumption on my group.I would recommend filtered or bottled water quality in quality out.
Super easy to use. Makes tons of ice and literally does make a new batch every 6-7 minutes for large cubes.
It worked well for about 6 weeks. Then it kept saying it was full of ice, when it in fact was empty. Called Amazon and they tried to help me over the phone and told me I couldn’t return it. Only had a month to do that. Then they said they would have the people that sell these call me. I don’t think they’ve called. Now I’m out of money on this piece of crud!!!
Works great. I did follow the directions and wash it out theoughly before I used it. Then I filled it with water and let it make all the ice it could with one batch of water. I disposed of that batch and started making ice to use. I didn’t notice any unsavory flavers or odors to ice by doing it this way.I am a little disappointed that I can’t really make as much ice with it as I originally intended. Yes technically it will make a lot of ice in a day, but the basket fills quickly and you’d have to be constantly be attendeding it to empty basket or refill water… whose gonna do that? So making a big batch to fill a cooler would be kinda of a pain.It does make noise when operating, could possibly be annoying at times but it’s not terrible.
happy buyer –
My name is ***** and I am an ice-a-holic. I use a lot of ice in my morning protein shakes and smoothies, I drink herbal iced tea all day long, and we both enjoy a nightcap or two, on the rocks, in the evenings. Our refrigerator’s ice maker broke and we were buying 2 bags of ice per week so this little countertop ice maker has honestly already saved us at least a couple hundred dollars, more than double it’s price! We have an open concept kitchen/family room and there’s no problem hearing the tv in the evenings when we’re relaxing on the couch and making ice in the kitchen to refill the bags in our freezer that we use up each day. It was definitely an excellent purchase for us!
Charles J. –
Bought as a gift, that has been well loved and used non stop for the last 8 months. Found some small pieces of white plastic in the water the other day, and then water tray started malfunctioning. I’m assuming something broke (hence the small plastic pieces). Either way we get no ice! Super bummed.
Amazon CustomerAmazon Customer –
I thought this was the best item I had ever bout. I only put triple filtered/softened water in, then after 10 months the mechanism stopped working, and the whole ice delivery system just retracted to the back and quit working altogether. I tried turning it off and on, and even unplugging/plugging it. The mechanism just would not work anymore.
This was perfect for my kitchen and i didn’t have to do any extras it sits right on my counter and the color is great! (more room in the freezer) no ice trays needed.
DJ LJ –
Great table top ice maker…..it’s a little noisy if the house is quiet but is not a deal breaker, it doesn’t make a ton of ice but will make enough for several 8oz cups in no time
Magali A. ChretienMagali A. Chretien –
I bought this item to replace having to fill ice trays and free up space in freezer. Ice in my household is a must and I was tired of getting bummed out by forgetting to fill the trays when I wanted a cold drink. So I decided to invest in this little machine that would fit on my counter with limited space. Oh boy was I excited to get ot out of the box and start making cubes. After setting it up which was so easy (don’t forget to remove all the pieces of tape inside) I had beautiful ice in less than 10 min. I use water from my Britta filter, hit the switch, selected small or big cubes, and there they were! The only time I hear it is when I leave it on and it collects the melted cubes I don’t use and makes more. The sound of the cubes hitting the tray may be loud for some people but it makes no difference to me since my ht system is always on. Clever kitchen tool for parties too since you can make lots of ice and bag it up in your freezer. Perfectly priced for what I wanted to spend too!
Great for those of us short on space. I fill it once, let it run, and store little ice cubes in baggies. Then put the unit away.
We bought this to use while camping in our RV. It works perfectly – exactly as described! Very reliable and easy to use. I had ordered another brand which didn’t work at all, so I was absolutely thrilled when this one made perfect bullet cubes!!
LaVonne Stucky –
Don’t order this. Quit within a month and I am stuck with a dead icemaker. I did get a refund, but they didn’t want it back. $35 to take it to the dump.I gave it one star because I had to give it something. That’s for the color only!
Works as expected keeps ice in the house. Set up was easy. Wish the max water line was a contrasting color for my mother to see easier but over all easy to use product
C Nickel –
Today the icemaker started smelling bad, almost a burning smell and stopped making ice. What a complete waste of money.EDIT** I contacted the seller and they were very prompt in issuing a refund. Thanks Heat Zone
DT Townsend –
I bought this April 10th, 2021. It was darn near 1 year to the day it died. If you want a great machine for 1 year this will work but if you’re looking for something that lasts don’t buy it.Thx
Patrick Snow –
Product performed as advertised. Only criticism I have it is louder than I thought it would be. Good for parties and entertaining when need I’ve for drinks
Jeff Franklin –
Great product, and if it stops working I will buy another. I have it sitting in the garage to fill my water containers for tennis 3x per week. It will fill about 1 40 oz container every 20 minutes or so, perfect.
Lisa L –
The ice bullet size is great can fit in a bag for easy storage and not so bulky to squeeze into small spaces in freezer to store. The taste is so fresh not like freezer ice cubes. This has made life so much easier. After a surgery it was so difficult to get myself to drink as much as I needed to but this makes it so easy mostly because of the fresh taste.
Kam J –
Don’t have an ice maker on my frig and no desire to get a new frig. Very happy with this ice maker. Doesn’t take up a lot of room and quickly makes ice. Like the two size options. You don’t really hear it until is dumps the ice. No issues or problems. Just mad that I waited so long to buy one.
Bought this to mainly use for a knee surgery that needs a lot of ice for swelling. Very reliable and I’ve also started using it for drinks . This has become a regular appliance for me.
Annie Beth –
This is a great product, looks good on our counter. Ice making is quick and efficient. Recommended.

UPDATE ** I never got my money back , they never fixed nor sent me a new one. The warranty listed in the description is bogus. Sent video, photos and am stuck with a broken machine. Not worth the money or the time wasted on all the month back and forth emails. They waste your time so the Amazon dispute expires.Purchased in Sept, thought it was great. As I do every year, I unplug everything and visit my son in Colorado. After two months away, I plug in my ice machine to find a loud noise and tiny see throw chips. The machine is not working as before so I cleaned it again but still no ice just little chips of melted mess. Even on large setting. Notified seller who had me make video and send video somewhere else, @ lucy Brown company, only to wait a week for the IT team to tell me to ‘unplug machine wait 10 minutes and plug it back in’. What part of it has been unplugged and unused for months do they not understand. Still doesn’t work. Trash it goes, warranty doesn’t mean anything to this seller. I want a replacement and they can have this one to do their investigations as to why it doesn’t work.
I love ice water and ice in all my drinks! This has been going strong for 3-4 months on all day every day and has had no problems what so ever! Easy to use and doesn’t take up to much space! I highly recommend it!
Jason Mackey –
We use this in our kitchen. We barely notice it running while sitting at the table just net to the kitchen, just a slight fan hum. The ice tastes better that the trays from the freezer.It holds quite a bit of water. The ice basket holds just enough to fill 3 glasses. And the machine works fast keeping fresh ice ready.
Ronda M. Polca –
My daughter bought this (her money my account) and I love it. This suckered stays on pretty much from when I wake up until I go to bed many days.
Kindle Customer –
This is perfect for small spaces like a camper trailer. Hubby likes small ice for his evening cocktail and, being from the South, we we both like our iced tea. This came highly recommended by our RV group on Facebook, so we decided to try it. Glad we did. Over time, this little ice maker will certainly pay for itself by saving us money from buying bags of ice, which is always a pain trying to figure out where to store it. Ice chest, fill the entire freezer? No, just use this ice maker!
cindy stuart 2013 –
I’ve not had good luck with these ice makers. Until this one. It’s the best so far. Way quieter than any of the others. Totally recommend this ice maker it’s legit, a good one.

I bought this to replace the ice maker in my refrigerator and it was the best decision I’ve made. It is very convenient and it works great! I also loved the fact it is red and the cost didn’t break the bank.
Nancy Watkins –
Easy to use. Makes lots of ice very quickly. My ice maker quit again on a newer refrigerator! They wanted $900. To fix it. So I opted for the ice maker. Very happy
Rita Fisher –
It makes ice very fast. Doesn’t take up to much counter space. Great product and great price.
Awesome little gadget don’t expect a pitcher of ice on the first round however it does its work and you avoid going to the corner store for ice we try to run ours atleast once a week and fill our fridge container we are a family of four with 2 young boys that over fill their cups with ice and the machine does its job
Stacey Brown –
Works great and very easy to operate
Carrie L. –
Bought this for my husband who drinks cold water all day long. He love this machine and uses it every day. It makes 2 sizes of ice pellets and they are great. Highly recommend.
I’ve only had this a few days and only used it once. Worked great. Easy to use. You do get ice in under 10 minutes, one cycle, but you have to wait for about 3 cycles for enough for one drink. So start it up early. I only use ice once a day for an Iced Mocha. I just let it run till full, didn’t time it, but aprox. several hours. Put the Ice in a zip lock in the fridge. 3-6 days of ice. The size of the cubes are perfect. When I use the last of the ice in the freezer I start another batch. No more of those cubes that have been in the freezer for months at the bottom of the ice tray. Don’t know yet how it will hold up over time but if it quits I’ll update my review.I’m adding an update, April 12, 2022. Still working great.
Scott J. Hamilton –
If you are looking for tons of ice for a crowd, this just won’t work for you. If, however, you need to supplement your refrigerator’s ice maker or to provide ice for a few people, this is just perfect. Looks cool, works like a champ, is quiet to operate, and you have two size options. For the price, you just can’t go wrong.
Joanne M. Davis –
Makes cute little ice cubes that easily fit into water containers.
This machine makes ice quite quickly…surprisingly quickly. It’s a great idea to be able to use bottled pure spring water to make your ice cubes. Often, ice from your fridge is made from less than desirable city water…this solves that problem.
Gerald Brown –
Works wonderfully We use bottle water most of the time every now and then we use sink. The ice always taste clean. It recycles melted ice water and automatically makes ice. Wonderful product. I have two.
I was doubtful when they claimed a 2 amp draw.BUT It’s TRUE, it’s running right now on a 400 watt solar system and making ice as I watch the volt meter charging the battery bank @ 14.1 volts. How is that possible on a 400 watt system???? And it’s MAKING ICE ????I live in the Rocky Mountain high country near Hartsel, CO and it works as claimed – hardly uses any electricity – UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!! How did they do that????? No more trips to town every three days for bag ice!!VERY SATISFIED.
I a Man in Uniform –
We chose this little guy as a starter ice maker. With so many very positive and very negative reviews for each option, we decided to go lower budget to find out if an ice maker was something we’d like.General Info:* Read the directions. They are pretty clear.* Be sure to get the tape in the back by where the ice is made. I almost missed it.* The maker takes about ten cups of water to get to the fill line. I used filtered water.* It really does give you your first ice cubes in 6 minutes, and immediately starts to work again.* You can adjust ice cube size. Ice cubes are clear and are hollow bullets. They are pretty chewy. I’ve never had sonic ice, so can’t compare.* Here’s how it basically works: Water is taken in from the bottom. It cycles up/back into the ice maker section, where the freezing process starts. When the ice cubes are done, they drop into the basket and the process starts again.Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Ice, Good Quality Ice, Water seems to not need refilling oftenCons: It’s not *quiet*. The feeding system requires a fan, and it sounds like a fan working at high speed. I’m not sure how other ice machines work, but I can’t imagine getting a machine that works this quickly that’s much more quiet. You can also occasionally hear water moving. It also doesn’t make a *lot* of ice at once, but with a new batch every 6 minutes, I’m not sure this is terrible.I’ll come back if things change, but as of this moment, this little guy gets two thumbs up.Update: It’s mid July. I got this product in June. It’s still making ice like a little…ICE MACHINE…but the low water sensor no longer works. That would possibly be a problem if I left it on and unattended.
TONI Gregg –
Only thing that sucked was the price I say it cheaper a week later at Costco n was pissed. It was literally half the cost I paid Amazon. Besides that i freaking love it awesome buy awesome find. Makes the good ice, n we makes bags n bags from 1 fill up. Perfect ice for drinks, smoothies the dogs bowl. Best buy on Amazon so far !!! highly recommend it
It set up easily and I have been using it daily since I received it. I tried the small cubes but they are much too small for what I need them for. The large cubes were a surprise. Not quite as large as I expected but work well. Being smaller than refrig cubes, they tend to melt faster. Otherwise, it works quite well and I am happy with this. I was very tired of using refrig. trays!
Easy to unpack and use. It is very compact and clever in design. It made ice quicker than I expected. Note that this is a small unit, so that basket fills quickly where the unit has a good auto shutdown. I bagged up the ice, and the unit started right back up making more ice.
Sheldon DamewoodSheldon Damewood –
Amazing ice maker! My wife and I have always had the issue of not having enough ice, this was the perfect solution! Makes more ice than we could ever want in a short time. Highly recommended!!!
Kenneth E. Watkins Sr. –
Makes ice quickly and is a good size for my camper.
Easy to use. Instructions were clear and precise. Very low noise.
Lauren Zuccarello –
I purchased this item with in the last month and it’s worked perfectly with no issues. It was super easy to set up and get started taking less than 5 minutes. At first the noise is slightly noticeable but after the first couple times I tend not to hear it abs got used to it. Takes about 1 hr to fill up the basket. It took about 3 baskets to fill up the ice container that came with my freezer/fridge.
Mark Hawkins –
I wish I bought this years ago. It makes enough ice for two people to keep their water bottles full all day long. Continuous production means we never run out and ice fits in every type of bottle we have.It’s also great if your tap water or freezer makes ice with an “off” taste. You can use any water you like and there’s nothing to impart any flavors in it.
I use a lot of ice throughout the day and got tired of making ice in my refrigerator freezer, found it annoying to keep refilling trays. I decided to try this ice maker. I figured it wouldn’t be too good because they do not keep the ice cold. Wow! Was I pleasantly surprised. I set the ice size for Large. The first three batches came out quickly. The ice was small and rather thin, but I was satisfied. When the fourth batch came out the ice bullets were fatter and much larger. Since then all the ice has been large and lasts a long time in a glass before melting. I think the refrigerant needed to settle from being transported by the mail carrier. Within 3 hours I filled up a one gallon freezer bag with ice. I keep it for backup. I just let the ice stay in the ice maker basket and scoop out what I need all day. It lasts a very long time and I have never run out of ice just scooping it from the machine. It is very quiet. I highly recommend this product. If you get one let it sit upright 2 hours before plugging it in so the Freon can settle. Don’t judge the ice till the third or fourth batch comes out.

Could be a little bigger but well worth the money. Good for chewable ice..
Luis A. Resto –
It stopped making ice!! Worked for about a month and that was it. The red “ice full” light stays on even if there is no ice. I was skeptical when I made the purchase but went ahead and gave it a shot. Well I should’ve gone with my first instinct.
A little pricier than I would’ve liked to pay but so glad I ended up getting it! Typically pretty quiet unless it’s short on water then it sounds like it’s working harder to make the ice. Overall, works great, ice serves its purpose, and I’d recommend it!
Janet Acker –
It produces two sizes of ice. After the tray is full I pour the ice cubes into my ice maker that has quit working in my refrigerator. I still have ice and tried to have my ice maker fixed three times. This was my best bet.
bought this to use in our RV. we bring it home for an extra ice source when we have parties. we love it and everyone is crazy about it. actually makes ice very well, and is fun
T. Stanley –
This is our 2nd ice machine. First was for the RV but died after 3 years. This one is so much better! Very quiet. Holds more water so makes more ice. Basket a bit deeper so fewer times it triggers the basket is full. We use small cubes and is very fast at making cubes.
Amazon Customer –
I bought this ice maker as a birthday gift and my friend is very happy with it, compact and efficient. It exceed her expectation, ice was ready in 10 minutes I highly recommend this product , and super fast delivery.
Ice maker stopped working after a few months and seller immediately refunded money. I’ve bought this ice maker in the past and it is worked great so I purchased another. It is quiet, makes great ice, easy to clean and looks nice. Seller was quick to reimburse without hassle and did not require me to ship back. Will definitely purchase again and am very happy with customer service 5 stars
Works perfectly and this baby will make some ice. I run it once a week to store in quart backs. Just tap it on the counter and your have a quart bag of fresh ice. It’s the best thing I have purchased this year.Update: 6/6/22Just purchased another one for my office. Got $20 off coupon on the silver model. Seems the large cubes are a bit larger. Still highly recommend this little ice maker. Easy to clean as well!
My daughter (who is an ice eater ) loves it! I bought it for her and she is so happy because she is plenty of ice in her office.
I’ve only had it for a day & I already LOVE it! It’s easy to use & the ice is perfect for munching on! 10/10 would highly recommend!

It’s easy to use super convenient

The ice companies may close due to this machine. I love it. I used to buy lots of ice because mine tastes funny. Anyway… it was super easy to get running. I got a gallon of water from the store. And taadaa I had ice. It makes bullet shaped ice that is hollow in the middle. As the ice is used or melts it makes more. I have no complaints at all. It doesn’t make a huge amount of ice, maybe 64oz a batch. It’s pretty quiet running. The ice makes a plink sound when it drops down.

We bought this to use at home when it is hot because our fridge ice maker is small and my husband uses a lot of ice in his drinks. We were also thinking we could use it in our small travel trailer when we go camping. It is very easy to use, the color is so pretty, and it matches my red kitchen well. You just pour the water in the compartment (we used a Britta pitcher to do so), and then wait a few minutes for the first pieces of ice to fall into the bucket. It is quick and not super loud. I think within an hour, we probably had at least a cup or two of ice. It keeps going until the water has run out. The lights are handy to find out what size ice you are making and the status of it. The “large” ice takes longer to make and is just thicker than the “small” ice. I think it will come in handy, especially in the summer and is worth the money.We left the lid open so it will dry out between uses, so I hope it will not get moldy like some people talked about in the reviews. Since we dump the fresh ice cubes into a bucket in our kitchen freezer to keep for later, we ordered a metal scoop to use. The plastic scoop it came with was thin and not super helpful because the ice cubes were fairly wet and stuck together after they refroze.
So, I had the idea to get this rather than hassling with making ice cubes. I was wrong…. This ice cube maker is high maintenance. If you don’t use the ice cubes right away, they melt. The idea is that they melt and the water gets recycled to make more ice cubes. But what’s left over becomes a big glob of ice. The machine is not quiet either. You know its working. The machine stops when its full or it runs out of water, then the melting begins. When the water runs out it makes a loud suction noise. You have to turn it on and off for it to stop. I gave it 3 stars because it does what its suppose to do… it makes ice. From researching other brands in this price range, they all work this way. To get one that actually keeps the ice cold you would have to pay around $500. Im not quite sure what this machine would be good for. Buying a bag of ice and putting it in a styrofoam cooler would give you the same results if you want it for camping. I returned mine and filled up the ice cube trays!
We purchased this to use when we are camping with our RV. It works great and replaces the need to store bigger bags of ice. We have found that we like the bigger size ice cubes better and we are able to store a quantity in the RV freezer for use as we need it. It stores easily under one of the chairs when we are traveling and it’s quiet when running. Perfect for what we use it for.
Christina Johnson –
I got this for my elderly father who loves ice, but does not have an ice maker in his fridge and is having some difficulty walking.He actually set it by his bed and will munch on ice cubes, which has helped him stay hydrated (he hates drinking water itself). The little ones are perfect and they are hollow.He is not super tech savvy, but this has been very easy for him to use.
Ronald Meade –
We bought ours a month or so ago. I’ve used it every day! We have also taken it camping twice. It’s well designed and well made. While camping in 90 degree weather just plugged it into the campground power, had constant ice all day right on the picnic table. What I like the most is that I just pour in more water from a gallon jug of high quality water we bring with us. I don’t trust campground water. This thing cranks out ice pellets, once it gets going. Like any refrigerated item, takes about 40 minutes to get to full throttle from first start. I unplug ours at night, pellets just melt back into the reservoir and I turn it back on in the a.m. Highly recommend this ice maker!

My refrigerator’s ice maker broke. Took months for the part to come in. In the meantime, I purchased this little ice maker. It did the trick. Could start making ice around 4 pm and we had plenty of ice for the entire evening. The only criticism is that the ice is very wet and it freezes together in large clumps. Other thank that, we love it.
Samantha B –
I love my ice maker. We have the standard ice from the freezer, but it’s so big and hard to crunch (yes, bad habit but…). This ice maker makes soft ice and I love the size of it (small setting – haven’t used large yet). The ice is made very quickly, so by the time I make another drink, the basket is full again. Best money I’ve spent – has made my cocktails even better.
This ice maker is wonderfuuul! The ice is soft for nibbling, which I do often with no fear of jacking my teeth up. If I had known the machine was this nice I’d have gotten it years ago. I do freeze some for harder ice since it works better in like soda. Love, love, loving this baby!
Dale Penn II –
Makes ice quickly – seems to have several cubes within 6-8 minutes and a full tray well within an hour. Great buy!
This is my 4th ice maker. The others all lasted about a year and a half, then died. This unit is awesome, works great. Makes plenty of ice, runs very quiet and takes up minimal counter space. .
H. Porter –
We bought this for our home bar and it is perfect. Makes ice quickly and is super easy to use.
bought this for our camper. Currently using it at home and filling bags for use later. Looking forward to never having to buy ice again or running out on camping trips. Great little ice maker and it’s great crunching ice too. If you know, you know! Super easy to use and doesn’t take up a ton of space.
Dorothy Jackson –
This is one of my best purchases. We’re into the heat of summer & don’t have a new refrigerator that has water & an ice dispenser in the door. I saw someone in an RV use this because of space & convenience. We live in a small condo with limited space. This product is perfect!!! It produces enough ice all day long for the two of us.
Joyce Carol –
Wanted to free up room in freezer so tried this ice maker. I was amazed that it made ice within 6 or 7 minutes. We use only spring water so the ice is fresh and clean tasting. The ice does not have the density of ice cubes but it still works very well in beverages. At times seem a little noisy.
Judith Cascio Bryant –
So for we love it Use down stairs and brought camping! Did a great jobs
Proud Mom –
It’s a great little machine. Makes ice fast. Love it!
David B. –
I bought this ice maker hoping for chewable ice. I didn’t expect Sonic ice, and it’s not (more on that at the end.) The biggest problem is the machine doesn’t keep the ice cold. There’s no refrigeration inside besides the little parts that form the ice nuggets. So the ice in the basket slowly melts and sticks together. We tried emptying it and storing it in the freezer, but it still stuck together. Unless you can use up the ice as fast as it’s made, you end up with a frozen ball in the basket eventually.Because the cubes are hollow (like a thimble shape) they melt incredibly quickly in your drink, leaving behind thin pieces and mostly water. They’re also less efficient at cooling your drink. You could try adding more ice, which will just water down your drink more. So we couldn’t find a good use for this ice maker unless you really need portable ice somewhere. Cubes are superior in every way.About chewable ice: ice cubes are notoriously bad for your teeth. The hollow nuggets produced by this machine are much easier to chew than regular cubes, but there’s a thick end, so I’m not sure it’s 100% safe. Fans of Sonic ice know that it’s soft and easy to chew because it’s extruded (basically shaved ice formed into nuggets.) I was hoping for a reasonable alternative, but for the reasons above, this ice maker didn’t fit the bill. As far as I can tell, the cheapest machine that makes extruded ice is the GE Opal which costs several times more.
Amazon CustomerAmazon Customer –
I bought this to go in our home bar that is being built in our basement. I put it in our kitchen because our refrigerator icemaker isn’t working. My wife says it is the best thing I ever bought on Amazon. I guess I’m gonna have to buy a second one.
Amazon Customer –
I’ve had this ice maker exactly a year today. It was a great little ice maker. We all loved it. Unfortunately about 3 or 4 months ago it stopped notifying us on when the water ran low and it also started to make ice very slowly. This week it’s barely making any ice. We’ve turned it off and on and unplugged it. Basically did everything we could to get it going. I’m disappointed that it’s hardly working now. Great little machine but it doesn’t last long.UPDATE: WOW! This seller is by far the best i’ve come across on Amazon. I have to say i am extremely pleased with the sellers customer service. Shortly after I wrote the above comment, I was contacted by one of their representatives and was offered me a full refund!! I was not expecting a full refund after having had this handy ice maker for a year! The manager was also very kind, polite and understanding about the situation. I am so pleased with the fact that this seller cares about its customers. This seller’s customer service just made this ice maker even better hehe. HIGHLY SATISFIED CUSTOMER I will definitely be repurchasing this same ice maker with my refund as we love it so much! In my family, It’s considered the best item we’ve purchased on Amazon!! Buy it! It’s from a good honest seller. Not to mention the ice maker is actually really good!
Size is perfect for small areas. A little noisy when is water is moving but I don’t mind. Great for classrooms when you aren’t near the lounge and you a cold drink all day. 🙂
Marcia Jo Lunsford –
It was delivered a day ahead of schedule. Packaged beautifully and easy to get started. Lovely ice cubes-9 at a time- in as little of 6 minutes per batch. Now I can get rid of all the ice trays taking up precious freezer space.
Filipino PowerFilipino Power –
These are the kind of ice cubes I like.I never ever have to go get ice.Ever.I only use my bottled water dispenser to fill this.It’s perfect.I do only turn it on when I need it.I rarely leave it on overnight.Because when you do need ice, it only takes 6 minutes.
Carl B. –
my husband loves to have ice all summer long. I bought this as a suprise gift. he has been using it non stop. it is very easy to set up, makes ice quickly and is very user friendly!
S. Thompson –
I have this where I can hear it, and it’s not too loud to distract you, but it’s just loud enough to remind you it’s on, so I remember to shut it off. After a good number of cycles, the ice is very good and I’m happy with the purchase.
Michael Howard –
This machine is easy to use. A little noisy, but becomes a steady background noise. Great for an office or bar.
Kim Castro –
Feel like I hit the jackpot! I am an ice Connoisseur- lol! This is the best ice- perfect size and hollow in the middle! My favorite!
D. Paul –
This thing worked perfect for 3 months. Then it stopped working. You turn it on and it acts like it’s turning then the “ice is full light” comes on but it isn’t and won’t make ice.
Jane Pilecki –
First, the color (red) is gorgeous!!! Second, this machine makes 2 different sized ice cubes, you choose, and quickly. Depending on the size, it only takes 6-13 minutes to make ice. In about 90 minutes, I can make 4 cups of water into a gallon sized plastic bag on ice. It is very easy to use,. There are only 2 buttons. So, being visually impaired is not an obstacle to using it. I am so very glad I purchased this. I have no room in my freezer to make ice, but I store a plastic bag of it. So this is the answer to having ice! It’s worth the money.
This little machine turns out ice fast. I don’t know how I lived without it. Love having ice handy without filling up trays.
rose Lang kunlev –
This product was wonderful and so easy to use, just fill it up, and dump out the ice when it’s done. The only problem I have with this machine is that the ice comes out very wet. I use it everyday and I don’t know how I managed before I got it. I go through so much ice and this is the cure.
Amazon Customer –
Baby ice cubes perfect for a quick drink on hot summer day.
I am 76 and I have had surgery on both shoulders, so I needed a countertop icemaker so I didn’t have to haul bags of ice home. I like this icemaker January 27 and it works well. My problem is that it looks like the bottom corner of it near the drain spout is not flush with the red part and leaks a tiny bit, causing corrosion. It doesn’t seem to be enough to drip on the countertop, but I can envision problems down the road. I bought the extended warranty, but at my age and physical condition, I don’t know now that I would be able to box it up and send it back for a replacement. I don’t feel like I should have to be dealing with this. However, if you’re looking for an icemaker that works well and looks good, I would recommend this as long as it didn’t come with a defect like mine.
Matthew J. Artibee –
This was out of the box ready. A quick rinse and I had great, unflavored ice in an instant. Okay 7-8 minutes. But so easy. It looks great on my counter. It take less space than the cookie jar!! And the ice lasts more than 20 minutes in my iced tea. I am so happy. Buy one for everywhere you want ice!!
Chris NJ –
Love it. It’s compact and fits nicely on my kitchen counter. It has a long chord which gives me flexibility in where I can place it. It’s quiet but loud enough so you don’t forget that it’s running. The ice cubes are small and melt quickly in drinks but it’s still worth having this machine. It’s a huge convenience to make ice instead of running to the store or waiting for a fresh tray to freeze.
peppermint pattie –
Nice size cubes, really quick to make new cubes. These grind right up in your blender for smoothies. Great purchase, doesn’t take up a lot of counter space, but makes a lot of ice.
Amanda H. –
Amazing! We use it every few days because we use soooo much ice! We love this lil thing! Its super easy to use, not much bigger than our coffee pot, looks great, and makes lots of ice super fast! I was impressed at how quite and efficient it is! We have had for a few months now and so far we have 0 complaints!
Kathy Gogerty –
This ice maker is very easy to use. Great for dinner parties and small get together. We also take it along in our RV. It makes ice very quickly which is nice in the Florida heat. I’d recommend this product to anyone!
Cathy Brown –

Worked great when I got it. Then it just stopped working about a month after I got it. Don’t buy.
Makes ice very fast, the ice will clump together and freeze into one block after about a day sometimes, but that doesn’t hinder my use for it as I throw them in a large container anyways
C Bridge –
love it, it for sure replaced buying bags every other week or so. I make a batch about every few days. This maker is not a freezer so it needs to be stored in the freezer.
Melinda De La Rosa –
We absolutely love this ice machine. Me and my office coworker went halves on this purchase, it is the right size and makes enough ice, for us both, all day. We HIGHLY recommend!!!
This machine works well. I would advise that if you want ice for a party to start the machine early. It takes about 30 minutes to see a good amount of ice. It also melts quickly so if you freeze it lay it flat on a tray or it will stick together.
I love this countertop ice maker! It didn’t take up a lot of counter space and it’s fairly quiet… but loud enough to hear when the ice drops. I’ve gotten it timed to approximately 1 hour to make a full basket of ice and the red light comes on. So, I just fill it to the max line, set a timer, and get on with whatever I’m doing. I usually fill up my freezer ice bin twice a week…about 4 hours per fill. To drain it between uses, I simply pull it to the edge of the counter and use a bowl…no need to really pick up the machine at all. It’s so much better than buying bags of ice weekly for about $6 (I eat a lot of ice). Love it!
DEBORA QUAMMEN –
Makes ice fast and easy. Now I know what’s in my ice versus store bought bags. Very happy with this product.
We bought this for our RV. My husband did a test run on it. It is fairly quiet with noise level you would expect. It is slightly larger than I expected, but it will be ok. It will be nice not to buy bagged ice.My husband got excited everytime the water filled the ice tray, and excited when it spilled ice holder. Fast. Quiet. Husband has a new toy. Two sizes of ice, and an ice scoop.
Helen J. StrupczewskiHelen J. Strupczewski –
LOVE THIS!! Our condo is small and our fridge does not have an ice maker … ever since chemo, I like my drinks cold … this is perfect!! Very easy to use … follow the directions at set up … like the large ice better than the small … a life saver for me!
Lilly Daro –
This was a great purchase for our home – the cycles are fairly quick – and I love that it keeps running as long as there’s water and the ice bin isn’t full.
Amazon Customer –
Simple to use. Very little noise. Ice tastes like the water you use to put in it. I have a Berkey water filter system. So my water always tastes great and I use this water to make my ice, so the ice tastes great too. In one afternoon makes enough ice for me for a week. Wish I had bought this sooner. I don’t have an ice maker in the refrigerator. I bought bags of ice for years. Don’t have to do it anymore.
Charles Ewing –

I love this little machine. The noise doesn’t bother me. All I do is pour the water in and it takes over. Yes the ice cubes or little nuggets are small. Look at all the ice I got and it doesn’t take that long.
S. Lowery –
This thing is super useful. I Put it on my wet bar and plug it in twice a week for boardgame night with the group. It’s fast enough for casual use. I dry it out at the end of the night with a paper towel and leave the lip slightly open to finish air drying; it stays sparkling clean with no mold as others have reported. No moisture = no problems.The drawback I see is that there’s zero chance of saving the ice in your own freezer. It holds I’ve long enough in its own tray, but it really is wet ice. Putting it in the colder freezer just creates a giant block. This is an ice maker, not an ice storage solution. The only cold parts are the stainless steel bits that make the ice. Again – not a freezer. It’s great!
Roseann Llewellyn –
This ice maker is fantastic! The cubes are small or large. Easy to chew if you like to chew ice. Breaks up easily but not slushy. Runs quietly and makes ice in a short amount of time. Compact and looks nice on the counter. I got a red one. I highly recommend this one!
FRED H BLISS –
Makes a load of ice every 9-12 minutes. Very quiet too. We use special filter/treated water in our machine. Wonderful purchase.
It worked great for the first 6 months and then it stopped. Definitely would have been cheaper to buy bags of ice or ice trays. The warranty on this sucks not even 1 year warranty. The seller honored the warranty on the machine and sent me a full refund.
Got the silver one. So far works exactly as it should, hasn’t been set up very long and already spitting out ice. Was surprised how quick it started! Will update if any issues come up
Kindle Customer –
I spent alot of time looking at reviews of different ice machines and I purchased this one I love ice cold and I’m so glad that I did..the ice has great flavor and the machine works so quick I’m so happy with this ice machine
We have a small refrigerator, but no freezer in our camper. We bought this as an experiment and saved the box in case it didn’t work. I’m in love with it and it’s just perfect for Happy Hour! We just threw the box away. Yes, the ice cubes are small, but they do the job and it makes plenty of ice for us.
Works exactly as directions explain, and it takes about 6 minutes for the first ice to appear! The machine is quiet, easy to use and clean, and very fast making ice!
Works great, you just keep an eye on the basket, we it the ice in a ziplock bag into the freezer! Our little ice maker is great!
It works so fast. I make a batch of ice and then I turn it off. If you put the Ice it makes in the freezer, it’s very nice ice. If you use the ice immediately out of the machine, it’s a bit more watery.. but that’s to be expected out of such a small refrigeration unit.
Leo Free –
We’ve been buying bag ice for some time… So glad to discover this little gem. Works better than we thought it could. No more trips to store for bag ice… Totally recommend.
I got one use out of this thing. Unplugged it and left it in a cabinet for a few months then tried to use it again. Water got everywhere. When it is sucking up water the machine takes maybe 10% of it then dumps the rest all over the counter. It still makes ice but it’s not worth having to clean up 3-4 cups of water off of the counter each time it makes a batch of ice.
C. Elliott –
What a great little ice maker. We’re really happy with it. Makes nice, cocktail-size cubes. Very easy to use. Good quality. Set it up and let it go. The only note would be that you can’t be in a hurry. It is a bit slow to complete a full cycle of ice making. We just plan ahead and no issues. Definitely would recommend, especially if you don’t like using or have room for ice trays.
I’ll admit I’ve only had this for two days but once I got past a very short learning curve, I’m thrilled to death with this ice maker. I tried to put a picture with this review but couldn’t figure out how to paste it here. I’ll add it later if I can ever figure out how.Update: months later and still love it. Works like a champ.
I gave more stars that it will show up on the reviews! I have found out if you put one star no one can read your review! Do not waste your money!I would not recommend this icemaker. It only worked a couple of days. Then started to not make ice, and if it did make ice it would not stay cool enough to keep the ice the ice would be completely melted. I’ve tried to contact him about replacement and haven’t heard back yet. If I am able to get a refund or get it replaced I will then leave another review about customer service and the new icemaker until then… Do not buy a waste of your money
Kindle Customer –
I bought this ice maker and I love it. I put water in when I need ice. In a few minutes ice is made. I move the ice to my freezer and it continues to make ice until all the water is gone. I move the rest of the ice to my freezer and I power it off until I need more ice. The cubes taste great, just like my well water.
Carli Denning –
I use bottled water so there is no bad taste. It works fast, I like that it melts to make fresh ice all the time. Great price!
Manuel S –
I’m so happy to finally have an ice maker with summer just around the corner. So my initial ice maker I received was defective and didn’t work at all, I sent the company a message and immediately I was contacted by their customer service, after a quick exchange they had a new replacement sent to me. That service alone is worth more then the machine. So after plugging in my new Ice maker, it started making ice In about 13 mins. I like the ice because it’s crunchable and semi soft, but not to the point where it will melt right away (hope that made sense). So buy yours with confidence, you won’t regret it!
STAR STRUCK –
It has made great ice since we got it. Suddenly it kept saying it was full when it wasn’t. I looked inside to find what was wrong. The paddle that moves the ice from the back to the front into the basket has come unhooked from one side. I tried to snap it back into place, but it wouldn’t stay on. It didn’t look broken. I tried for some time to snap it back down. Couldn’t do it. It would still make great ice but it couldn’t push it into the basket and the machine thought it was full because the ice would block the sensor. I texted the kismile company about replacing the part. I got a reply immediately. They said they would be glad to replace the part and talk me through replacing it into the machine. They called me a few days later and said it’s the Chinese holidays and would take a very long time to get the part. She asked if I would be agreeable to them refunding my purchase price and they would still send me the part. But reminded me it would take a very long time to get the part. I said yes. They refunded the full price right away. They were so quick to respond and we’re so friendly I was impressed. They really went out of their way with calling me and speaking personally with me. I’m sure they’ll send the part and I would not be afraid of ordering from them again! The customer service made this a 5 star! Thank you!
Jacob Bond –
My mom got this for my dad for Christmas because we’re constantly buying ice. I was given the job of finding the right one, and this seemed to have some solid reviews and wasn’t insanely priced so we took a chance on it. We got the red one because, honestly, it was the cheaper version of the three colors.It really is an awesome little machine! I was a little worried it couldn’t keep up with our ice use but it actually does a great job. Plug it in and check it every once in awhile to remove the ice and it will build up a good supply in no time. It’s pretty quiet, too.Taste-wise I guess depends on what you use. We’re just using tap water but I haven’t even noticed anything.Overall I would definitely recommend this machine. We’ve been using it a lot over the past month so we’ll see how well it stands up to heavy use, but so far so good!
I can not speak to longevity, I have only had two months. I will say it works like a champ. I filled up a one gallon zip lock in 3 hrs.
Ken Morris –
Works just like I expected. While the cubes aren’t huge, they are decent and as long as you dump it often and place the cubes in the freezer, it works great. It really does create a lot of ice in a short amount of time…just as is advertised.
I can be having friends over and start this in the morning and by 5 have plenty of ice for drinks!! I love love love it!!!!
Krista hebert –
Great product!! Ice is made extremely fast and the product is well made once the ice is all made it makes quite a bit!
Christine M. Kovar –
This is an awesome little ice maker for your counter. My freezer is tiny and I’m sick of freezer burnt ice trays, so this was a perfect purchase. It can be a bit noisy when it cycles ice, so I unplug it when I go to bed. The ice pieces are the perfect texture, not too hard, great for chewing. There are two sizes of cube options, small and large. If you enjoy ice on hand at all times, I highly recommend this ice maker!
Reece Hittin the Piece –
Cool and very useful product. Ran some test batches and it was a breeze. Makes enough ice but on the first cycle the ice is small even if you chose the large option. So I dump it back in and it melts and I have had zero mechanical problems. The fan is quiet not to loud. I don’t use the ice scoop it’s a small cheap scoop.
First unit we bought only lasted one year. Switched brands and this unit has lived up to the ratings and comments that favor it. Ice making speed is faster than previous one. Very satisfied customer.
Worked well for 8 months now sensor always says ice full and it won’t make any ice. I really liked this machine but it stopped working this week and I can’t seem to get it to acknowledge there isn’t any ice in the machine and it’s not full.
Lady Shopaholic –
I purchased this product because my large family goes through tons of ice and our poor little ice trays could not keep up with the demand.So I went online and read the reviews, like you are doing now, and said what the heck….let’s try it. I AM SO GLAD THAT I DID!!! This is an amazing product that lives up to the description and our demand. I have no idea what I was doing without this machine in our lives…..Thank God we have it now!!!
I bought this ice maker when our in-fridge ice maker couldn’t keep up with my pregnancy demands for crushed ice. I really wanted a pellet ice machine, but at $500+, this was a practical compromise. I planned to take the ice from this machine and put it in our fridge unit to be crushed into easy to crunch pieces. To my delight, I found they these “cubes” (they’re not cube shaped) are usually soft and crunchable right from the machine. The unit is quiet, except the expected noise of ice dropping. The ice cubes, even on small settings, are far larger than pellet ice, but because they’re soft and crunchable, I don’t mind. Love love love this icemaker.

This ice maker is perfect for our Lake House, no more bags of ice. Unit is very quiet, makes 9 cubes in 6min. The picture is of a large size cube. Very well packaged in shipment. so far so good. the reviews were very positive.
We bought this for our RV and it performed like a champ. Fill it with water, do some things and when you come back there’s ice in it. It kept churning out ice the first night of our stay and we never had to use ice trays or buy ice. Really works.

Bought this unit because our freezer’s ice maker consistently makes the ice cubes in strips instead of individual cubes. 1st world problems, I know. Doesn’t really take up much space either.

Great little ice maker! Does everything they say. This is just an update. We have been using this ice maker for a while now it is an amazing machine. Reliable and well worth the money. I recommend it highly!
Nice machine so far. Seems like it will hold up well. The only small complaint is that the basket for the ice moves around a bit when ya get the ice out but it doesn’t affect the use
Been using this ice maker consistently for about 3 weeks now. I purchased the ice maker back in July and used it occasionally for about 2 weeks, it worked great for small dinner parties.About 3 weeks ago I started using the ice maker more often, making 1-2 batches of ice per day and that’s when I ran into issues.After about 3 weeks of using it consistently, I did as I normally do and filled the ice maker in the morning when I woke up, went to the gym and when I came back there was about 1/2 gallon of water sitting on my floor. I thought it was odd but didn’t put the blame on the ice maker. I looked into the machine and there was no ice and no water, I turned the machine over and there were 2 large holes in the piping underneath the machine, letting all of the water escape.Long story short, I was never hard on this machine and never made more than a few batches per day, the ice maker sat in the same spot on the same table the whole time I had it, and never did more than move it over to a new spot on the table.This isn’t a horrible ice maker, but this definitely isn’t one that you should buy and expect to be super reliable. I recommend spending the extra money and buy something more reliable.

I love this machine – it makes ice very fast and it is not that loud. I use it every night.

This ice maker is just what we needed. We have a small freezer compartment in our refrigerator, and having ice cube trays took up needed space. This little machine works hard for us and keeps us in ice all day. We love the small and larger bullets. Now I don’t know how we got by without it. The only negative is the noise level, but we are getting used to it, love hearing the ice drop!

Fast Service Packaged Safely. The Use Of the Ice Maker Was Easy,Including Add Water ,Removing Ice , Drain Water After Making Ice. Suggest Buy Water That Has Little Or No Minerals..I Use My Ice Maker For Personal Use In Computer Room,As I Have No Freezer.Recommend Product And Seller……..Also I Purchased Warranty.
This makes ice very quickly, so I am able to stick up fir when I have guests coming over. Toes Mt take up much space and very easy to use. I love it.
I love everything about this ice machine except for the black stuff it keeps growing inside the water Tank. I have cleaned it thoroughly. I went on Amazon and asked what this black stuff is? Someone told me it is algae. They recommended I clean it thoroughly with vinegar or Bleach. They told me to go on YouTube to see how to clean. So I did. I cleaned it thoroughly. A few hours later the black stuff/Algae was growing back. It’s a real shame because I really like this machine. I am going to return it.Update: I realized after I got a new ice machine that the black stuff is from the filter in my Brita water pitcher. This ice machine is a beautiful color and worked fine. But ice machines are a lot of work. They need to be cleaned regularly! Weekly.

It is great! Makes ice quickly. If you don’t use the ice right away it melts and the ice is remade until you do use it. Perfect for Friday and Saturday get togethers. Keeps out drinks cool.( Margaritas)
This ice maker is practical and very functional. It is perfect fo everyday ice making. Helpful when entertaining.

This ice maker is easy to use and fast. I don’t have to buy ice anymore.
This was a great value for the price within a day had a whole bucket of ice pretty fast not much noise, works great ! Nice alternative due to ice machine not working it’s about size of a regular coffee maker
I’ll start off by saying I’m pretty much an alcoholic. My go to drink is vodka and seltzer water. I’m on my third as I’m writing this review right now. I bought this machine because our fridge doesn’t have an ice maker and I’m tired of buying ice every week. Plus, if I don’t have to buy ice every week, I have more money to buy vodka. Two weeks in and this thing keeps up with my raging alcoholic lifestyle. Pumps out out nine ice cubes at a time, but keeps my 32 ounce glass of vodka and Waterloo nice and full of succulent bits of ice cubes. It’s so fun to watch operate, that even when I’m not drinking yet, mostly in the morning hours, I run it and bag the ice in case I need an emergency drink. It makes two different sized cubes, but I run the larger ones only. You are supposed to clean it before you use it, but your standards go down when you’re a drunk, so I just put this bad boy to work right away. It will be great for our camper too, cause I always get drunk when we are camping. Would recommend.
Super easy to use and the color red is real fun! We use it in our camper. Super easy and not loud at all. Highly recommend!

It’s hot it’s summer and ice sells fast but we have a never ending supply now. Do have to monitor a little to empty full basket and refill water reservoir.But with a house of 8 we never run out of ice. No funny taste medium size round cubes take as much space as a coffee machine. Great value for the price pays for it self in 3months

Hello from our beautiful Dine Nation! I got this ice maker because our new refrigerator wasn’t making our ice quickly. So far were enjoying our ice maker. You don’t need to hook up a water line. I use the water from our refrigerator and i pack the ice in plastic ziploc bags. The ice maker makes small and big ice. It makes the ice quickly, not complaints and enjoying our ice maker! Hagoone’
I was skeptical about this one because it is a good price and I didn’t recognize the brand. My family loves it!!! I leave it on 24/7 and pour fresh water in when it’s low. It makes a little bit of noise when it makes fresh ice but you get used to it and it’s not disturbing. I’ve had it for about 8 months and I would recommend this little gem to anyone!! It’s holding up great!!!

Great little machine. Easy to use and makes ice all day without an issue. We put the ice in the freezer when the basket is full.

This is a great little ice maker. As long as you prep ahead of time you’ll have plenty of extra ice for the week
Hesitated to buy an ice machine, but the convenience awesome. This is easy to use and quick, in less than 10minutes we have ice! Perfect for everyday use or special occasions.
