I paid $119.99 CDN on sale for this little machine, and it works very well for the price. It's certainly convenient not to have to deal with ice cube trays, and have ice in minutes, not hours! As I live in a rented home, I can't purchase a fridge with an ice maker, so this was a great solution for my family. Admittedly, I was a little disappointed at first with the small size of the cubes and that it didn't keep them frozen for me when I first bought the machine, but I was totally sold on it after just a couple of uses. I now wouldn't give it up unless I had a fridge with an ice maker! I also love the extra room in my freezer now that I don't use ice cube trays anymore, and my ice doesn't have that awful freezer taste it sometimes used to get. The pros far outweigh the cons for those like me who are looking for a reasonably priced and convenient ice maker for simple everyday use.
This machine is also great for uses other than at home. At the school I work in, we were in need of an icemaker in our Physical Education department as a means of having ice readily available in case of injuries. We purchased a machine like this. Not having to send someone to fetch ice from the staff kitchen or Food Studies Lab, but having a machine right in the Phys. Ed. office that can create ice quickly has been invaluable! As the office is very small, the compact design of the machine made it very easy to place without taking up much room.

The reservoir and ice storage area seems to be of appropriate size for the intended use, which is clearly small bars or poolsides. This is not intended to serve a party of more than about 6 people with constant ice. Remember, the ice pieces are small and you’ll likely use a whole batch of 9 for one large drink, or about 6 pieces for a smaller drink.
The unit was easy to ‘clean’ by running water through it, though I will say that when the ice melts, the water has a slight taste of plastic. The taste mostly went away after a few dozen batches and further purging with clean water and it is no more noticeable than a regular reusable plastic container.
Final notes: This device is very useful for people who like small pieces of ice frequently. It will not be the answer for people looking to add ice to more than approximately 6 drinks per hour. The ice pieces are small but are good for packing into lunches, using in a water bong, or for fitting into the mouth of a water bottle.

First ice maker ever purchased. Don't have much to compare it to. But it's pretty much plug and play. And it's very quick to make itPublished 19 months ago by Christopher Garcia
