Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Golfrat53 I would not recomend this product.
After purchasing this product online, it was delivered to the house. Since it was delivered I have had to do repairs to the Ice machine several times. (The machine was used in a private household not a commercial setting.) The BLUESTONE help desk had me take the system apart and do the repair work myself. After getting the results, I would have to call and wait several hours to several days for them to get back to me. After several problems and finally after working on the system freezing up and not making ice for about 4 months, they said it was now out of warranty and I would now have to call and PAY for a technician to come repair it. If you are not a qualified technician, I WOULD NOT BUY THIS MACHINE FROM BLUESTONE!! This is not the service I expected from a Home Depot provider.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Oooops Started Off Good
Bought this unit for my little restaurant I own. We are open for 8 hours a day and most of my traffic is take out business. This machine worked excellent, kept up with demand and was quiet. Problem is it was purchased in August 2012 and it has quit working as of February 2014. Working with the help desk has produced no resolution and for what it cost, it just isn't worth how long it lasts. For the hours of operation, this failure was not due to over use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pointer Very good ice maker
I finished the installation at 6 PM and started making ice. By 9 in the morning, the machine was 3/4 full. The overall look is nice, but I am a little concerned about thelong term durability of the door which is plastic. Also, it does not open all the way which makes getting to the ice a little harder. Given those minor drawbacks, it's good ice maker for the price and does look good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CMCC This machine is adequate for our needs.
This icemaker has a small footprint and fits nicely in our community center. My only concern would be energy efficiency and insulation. Haven't had it long enough to know yet. Icecubes are watery on surface. Don't know if that is just the process or if more insulation would help.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Danielle Very cool :)
We just bought this machine a few weeks ago, and we love it so far! It arrived on the hottest day of the year and in the midst of a heatwave (100+ everyday) We've set it up in our garage which stays well over 95, maybe even 100 during the day, and this little machine has kept up, still producing a full bin of very solid clear ice. We started out using the smaller cube size, but because of the extreme heat changed the cube size to the largest setting so the cubes don't melt as fast. We've been bagging up the ice and filling up a large cooler for my husband to take to the jobsite every morning. We did buy the water filter because we have well water, and have to use filters in the house too, and so far the ice is very clear with no funny taste. I would recommend getting the filter when you get the machine..you will need a few more connectors and tubing than what comes with the filter, but just like the ice machine,the filter was really easy to install

This is an excellent choice. It does produce the volume as advertised. Very simple installation that you can do yourself. It's compact enough to take in the back of a large SUV on vacations with you. Should have invested in this before......

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Edgar Perfect for my needs
The ice maker is nice looking and makes ice quickly (32 large bullet shaped cubes every 22 minutes). It can fill its bin in about 6 hours. It makes a little more noise than my last one but that is really not a problem for me.

Makes ice at rate advertised. Love the shape and heft of the cubes. We no longer have to buy supplemental ice for our pub on Friday nights!
