    Not a Sonic within 100 miles and after having their ice, no other ice compares. I’d been looking at nugget icemakers for over a year, but was dissuaded by lack of options and questionable reviews on what options were available. Persuaded by prime day, a coupon and other favorable reviews, I jumped on this one.

    Setup:
    I followed the setup instructions to a “T”. Washing the basket and scoop, wiping down the inside with a vinegar and water solution as recommended in the manual. Also, running that solution through a cycle or two, then draining in between. Also, following the recommendation to let it sit upon arrival for a few hours and also in between moving it. I also ran two cycles of ice and dumped before using the next round of ice.

    Additionally, I made a sure to leave plenty of room on all sides for ventilation. I believe they suggest 3 or more inches on each side.

    Verdict:
    I love this ice machine and the ice it makes. It will fill the basket with about 2lbs of ice in just a couple of hours. Shutting off when it senses a full basket. I have noticed that it will sometimes shut off when the basket isn’t completely full which I fix by scooping ice to the front side of the basket, then when the lid closes..you’re back in business. It seems that when you don’t use ice for a while, you’ll get a little bit of ice clumping together or on thaw. Stirring up the i e, checking the water level and then closing the lid again seems to get it going again.

    Overall:
    I think it’s with the money and we couldn’t be more pleased. Albeit just a few weeks into ownership.

    We moved into a new home that made it impossible to run a water line to the fridge. As a result we were living day to day with bagged ice from a nearby store (we now live in the country, so its bigger deal than it sounds). It became clear that we were looking at moving back to tray ice or buying an ice machine.

    I was close to pulling the trigger on a light-duty commercial ice machine when I found several sites recommending this surface unit and we couldn’t be happier. It creates soft, chewable ice in a very reasonable amount of time. The unit is rather large and heavy, which is not that big of a deal (it feels solid). Noise wise it hums about as loud as a microwave while creating ice, but when done its completely silent. It creates more ice than three of us can consume (and we’re all ice chewers) and adds up pretty quickly. We move unused ice to the ice machine in the freezer and now it too dispenses chewable ice too. It makes so much that I’ve started bagging it and taking it down to a guest house we have on property for visitors to enjoy as well.

    Are we now spoiled? We’ve caught ourselves looking at the ice when we go out now and say “we have better ice at home”. So, yeah.

    I connected it to a permanent water line which removes one more step in the process since we keep it on all the time. If you’re in the market, note that ice production is slow but consistent – don’t purchase one and turn it on an hour before a party and expect ice. There are also some restrictions about moving it and allowing the unit to settle before turning it back on (fridges say the same thing) so while portable, include that into your prep time for ice usage.

    Definitely a thumbs up if it’s what you’re looking for.

    So far so good.
    I have had the unit for a month and no issues.
    I’ve never had the “sonic” ice – but I am happy with the size and texture of these – they are a bit harder than expected – and more like ice pellets than nuggets – but still great for tiki drinks

    I highly recommend hooking up the water line – it makes a big difference – fulling it all the time is a pain

    its not as automatic as id like though – sometimes when I get ice in the AM for coffee its quite low as the cycle has not started – still there is usually enough for a large ice coffee
    also during the day it melts down quite a bit before it kicks in again – if I see it I just open and close it and it kicks in
    it makes enough ice for me – I use a lot of ice during the day – but if there were 3 or 4 people I think you might run out

    cleaning is also a bit of a pain as you have to get to the back of the unit

    although pricey I am happy with it overall
