Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kmwf Great concept; worthless appliance
This item worked great for about 6 months and then the red light of death appeared, telling me to ADD MORE WATER. Seems the motor has a very short life span and no longer will pump the water from the reservoir. Reading other reviews, I see this is a common problem. Sadly, the 4 and 5 star reviews are written soon after purchase. I could have written a 4/5 star review the first 3-4 months. In case you are wondering how often we used this appliance: less than 10 days a month and then only part days. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS ITEM!

It is really nice to be able to have ice on hand at all times instead of having to run to the store. It is also nice that the ice machine has a feature that allows you to choose from either large or small ice cubes. The ice maker is made from quality material and is a really good buy for the money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike sensor died within a year = no ice
Two little sensors talk to each other to sense when ice is full to stop ice production. Well, they seem to have rusted internally within one year of use. They think the ice is full and therefor no more ice will be produced. One year?! It should be covered by warranty, but where did I put that .... receipt and why do I have to deal with this little ....?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Popiye1happycustomer *** Awesome *** Magic Chef *** Best Portable Ice Maker on the Market ***
Magic Chef Ice maker: Plugged it in and 6 minutes later had ICE !!! Great Item for the $ amount. Very quite with no vibrations. Easy to clean, fill, drain & empty basket. Drain plug on bottom is a plus. Just slide edge over sink, unplug to drain, plug up, refill water and continue making ice within a couple of minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shar Best for events. Makes ice quickly.
This product hardly had any assembly, easy to use you just add water and it makes a lot of ice. Best for events as the ice doesn’t stay cold and will melt into the water reservoir .

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Grandmasandi Add Water - Red Light Issue
Purchased this item in May 2015 as our refrigerator ice maker quit several years ago and I was tired of constantly filling up ice trays. Worked like a charm for 6 months then the "red light - add water" happened. Motor would not push water up to the fingers. Took this item back to Home Depot as was on my charge there and returned it. There were no items like this in the store as it had been clearance for $77 (I paid over $100). I could have ordered on line for $160 but ordered another brand instead. I liked the concept and this machine made enough ice to fulfill our needs. Just wish it would have lasted.

We had it for 6 months when it just quit working. It says the ice is full when it's empty. I tried everything. We only used it for special occasions. Very poor quality for a lot of money!

Excellent product, there are cheaper ones out there and I have one of those as well. This one works better with less button pushing than the cheaper one does. I like it.
