We were looking for a counter top Ice maker that made pellet ice like Sonic ice. They were not counter top and cost a lot more than this model. We use the small bullets that is similar to the Sonic ice my wife was looking for. It takes a while for it to get going.but once it gets going every 7 or 8 minuets or so more ice comes out. The ice is very wet as this unit does not refrigerate the bin area, so if you bag and put in a freezer or put in a bin in your freezer you will have to break it up for use. This is just a small annoyance. We use ours almost every day and let our freezer ice maker make the hard half moon cubes and we bag the ice from this or use it all day for fresh ice and turn it off at night. I don't know how energy efficient it is so I only gave it a 3.

This machine lasted 2 years of constant use by multiple staff members. IT was very quiet and dependable. I feel like it was a good value. Have purchased another one.

I purchased this ice maker in the middle of March and although since I live in Hawaii and had to special order the ice maker It makes ice very quickly as advertised and the perfect shape for drinks. The only problem that I have found was that when the ice tray dumps the ice there have been several times that the ice gets caught between the ice full senser and the ice container which shuts off the ice maker. I found that if I place the ice scoop over top of the senser then I do not have this issue and it will still shut off automatically when the tray is full. One issue that I did not know when I purchased this product that it does not keep the ice cold and it melts pretty rapidly since the storage is more like a cooler and not a freezer. Still works great for parties and afterwork drinks.

I LOVE MAKING OUR OWN ICE! Unit is no noisier than any refrigerator, except when it drops the 9 "cubes" and that happens about every 12 minutes while operating. Our white unit is sleek and easy to clean. Processing one reservoir yields two 1-gallon bags of ice, which must then be preserved in the freezer; this unit MAKES ice, it does not preserve it, but they tell you that, don't they! Remembering that plastic is not as durable as metal, I expect if I treat it appropriately it will serve my needs nicely. These cylinders of ice melt faster than would a solid cube, but that just makes them ideal for use in smoothies!! Nothing gripes me more than a lumpy smoothie! If this machine quits on me, I would order another in a heartbeat. I have used it for a couple of months now and am still excited.

I love this item. Super easy to use, quiet, looks good, sturdy and when you are doing a chore, what could be better than having fun doing it. If it wears out I will replace it with the larger model, but this thing kicks out plenty of ice for now.
