    I’ve owned this for a week now. here’s my take on it. If you can swing by once an hour to empty the hopper into a container in your freezer, it’s great. That said, if you don’t have time to sit and babysit this bad boy, the ice in the hopper will melt and you have to start back over and wait awhile to get ice. I’m in construction in Texas.. its freaking hot here like anywhere else in the summer. I use a ton of ice in my water jug and the cooler. every night when I get home I have to set a timer for 1 hour and just swing by and empty the hopper and fill the water reservoir, until I go to bed in order to have enough ice for the next day. On my day(s) off I’ll try and spend as much time filling up bags of ice. I bought myself a box of 8lb bag ice bags. In a week, I’m up to three 8lb bags, of reserve ice. I’m not sure how anyone claims this can do 26lbs in 24hrs. Realistically… 9 cubes, every 7 minutes… the hopper holds 9 rounds… 81 cubes. It takes an hour to do that. You can math it from there…. Final take… for $130 and not having to wait on conventional ice trays it’s worth the money, IF you have the patience. 😊 it’s not loud while it’s running, and it’s pretty easy to use. just have to babysit it.

    We are always running out of ice and this has solved the problem. I wish I would have bought this a long time ago.

    This ice maker is excellent and will delivery the 26 lbs. of ice per day. What a lot of people don’t understand about countertop ice makers is that when the ice is made it is about 27 degrees and the ice maker is not a storage freezer. Think of it like the ice that was just made will sit in the ice maker which is like keeping ice in a cooler. It won’t get colder it will just slowly melt and then gets turned back into ice again.

    Keep in mind when you pull ice out of your kitchen freezer that has been in there for several hours it is around 0 degrees vs. the 27 degrees right out of the countertop ice maker. So, ice from your freezer is going to last a lot longer in a drink than ice out of this countertop ice maker. So, that may not be ideal for some if you are having a drink outside on a hot day and not using an insulated cup. For best results take the ice out of the countertop ice maker and put it in a gallon ziplock bag and place it in the freezer for a little while so it will get down to the 0 degrees. That is not necessary though. The ice that comes right out of the machine is plenty cold enough for drinking beverages indoors. If you want to use the ice outdoors just place the ice in an insulated cup.

    Very quality built machine.
    Very easy to use.
    It uses lights to notify you of the status rather than annoying beeps.
    It really does make 26 lbs. of ice in an hour.
    First ice in about 8 minutes.
    Full basket of ice in about an hour.
    Pauses itself when ice basket is full and will resume ice production automatically as soon as some ice is removed.
    Light comes on when water needs to be added (keep in mind you still have a full basket of ice when this triggers).
    Melts very slowly and if you leave it on over night it only comes on once or twice to replace the ice that melted.
    Quite operation.
    It doesn’t take up a lot of countertop space so we are able to leave it out and it matches our stainless steel fridge.
    It comes with a nice ice scoop which is great for parties.
    This ice maker keeps dropping ice every 8 minutes.
    The cord is very long so it doesn’t have to be right up against the outlet.

    The only con I have about the machine is trying to drain the water remaining when you are done using it. There is a drain plug underneath it that is a little tricky to use because you can’t see underneath the machine and you can’t just turn the machine upside down to drain it per their instructions. That will harm the machine.

    What I found to be a great solution is instead of using the drain plug I use a microfiber towel to soak up all the water left in the machine. That only takes a quick second and you don’t have to move the ice maker over the sink to drain it. I then leave the lid open to make sure it dries out. So it really isn’t a con if you use the microfiber towel. It is so easy this way which means I never mind using the machine even to make a small amount of ice.

    Tenía meses batallando con la máquina de hielos de mi refrigerador y un montón de dinero tirado porque no quedaba bien y esta máquina vino a resolver todos mis problemas , siempre hay hielo suficiente para todos , fácil manejo , cabe en cualquier parte , de buen material y combina con el acero inoxidable del resto de los aparatos de cocina . Ligeramente ruidosa al principio pero luego te acostumbras y ya ni lo notas . Los hielos son un poco más pequeños que los del refrigerador pero enfrían bien y no se derriten rápido en la bebida . Muy contenta con mi compra

    We love our ice, but only particular ice for the cylinder shaped cubes. This ice machine gives perfect ones! We have a container in our fridge we keep full and only have to use this maybe once a week to keep our container full. Machine is easy to drain when done, just make sure you put a towel underneath the machine when sliding on counter. One of the screws on the bottom scratched our counter top. We now have a small towel under it and it sits on our counter top ready to be used whenever we need. I highly recommend this machine!!!!

    While I have a newer fridge with the fancy built in ice machine, I also have a husband that doesn’t usually finish the projects promised (such as adding the water hookup). I myself am not at all verses in any area of plumbing, so me attempting would undoubtedly lead to the need for fixes, which like projects, never seem to get finished. That being said, this little gadget has come in pretty handy!

    While I could just have gotten ice trays for a fraction of the price, (A) I’m inpatient and don’t want to wait the eternity for those to freeze and (B) don’t always/ever want the huge ice cubes in my drinks. I know, there are smaller ones, but been there, tried them, still took too long when I finally remembered to refill the trays. Anyways, on the the important pro/con list:

    – 2 sizes, both same shape, just slightly different in size
    – small enough to keep on the counter without being in the way.
    – first batch comes out pretty quickly, and follow-up batches don’t take too long either.
    – plug under the fill area, so you can empty it once done without having to turn whole machine upside down (or leave it in there to get gross)
    – kids love watching the little arm push the ice into the bucket once frozen

    – water reservoir doesn’t hold much, so you need to refill frequently if you are constantly making ice
    – ice basket is also smaller so needs to be emptied frequently as ice is produced
    -machine doesn’t get super cold, so ice can sweat, which will lead to it sticking together a bit of you move to freezer after

    -cleaning looks like it could be an issue, unless you have really tiny hands to get in all the tight spots

    Considering the size and cost of it, I would definitely recommend.

    The media could not be loaded.

     Lo unico malo y raro es que los hielos duran menos que los que uno compra en la tienda, la cantidad de hielos que se ven salir en el video la saca cada 10 a 12 minutos

    Es util si estas cansado de los moldes para hielo, la desventaja es que se tarda en hacerlos y va haciendo de poco en poco, pero sabiendo esto la puedes echar a andar desde temprano y ya tendrás hielo para todo el día. Los puedes almacenar en el congelador para alguna emergencia. Hace hielos chicos en forma de bala por lo que caben muy bien en cualquier vaso. Si te gusta enfriar las bebidas y tener una maquina de hielo practica y económica es una buena opción

    Yo la compre por que me enfadaba mucho meter vasijas para los hielos porque se me tiraba el agua cuando lo hacia y esta maquina la lleno con facilidad y solo vacio los hielos una vez hechos en la charola del.congelador
