Can't say enough good things about this ice maker. Have had it for over a month now. Own a small restaurant and have needed to buy ice by the bag at great cost. Since the day I received it, this little wonder has been cranking out ice at an amazing rate. Now we need another freezer. It is compact, efficient and quiet (for an ice maker) I don't understand the problem that some have, all you need to do is follow the directions and use good water and soon you will have more great tasting ice than you know what to do with. At the rate is is going it will more than pay for itself in another couple of months. I highly recommend this machine for anyone that needs a lot of ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 This product works
I decided to try this unit after reading the online reviews and doing online research comparing the user reviews and ratings services. Its only been about a month or so of daily icemaking but it is chugging right along. I make several batches each day and freeze the cubes in gallon plastic storage bags. One or two solid whack on the 2" wooden cutting board separates the cubes for putting into refrigerator/freezer ice tray for serving. I had previously brought from a different manufacturer but the item was malfunctioning on arrival and refused to make ice cubes. Decided to try this unit - it is meeting or exceeding my expectations so far.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mark outstanding!
I love this thing! I let the first few batches of ice go back into the water so it cools the water prior to freezing making the ice even more dense and last longer in the tray. I have my own home bar where I have a good amount of friends come and drink and the machine keeps up with the demand it's great!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by IceLover Pretty good for ice chewers
I read a lot of the other reviews before purchasing this ice maker. I'm an avid ice chewer, going through about a 10 pound bag a week. This ice maker has been great so far. It makes the ice really quickly and it's softly frozen. If you want harder ice, just stick it in the freezer. I read one review that said the ice tasted "plasticky". Clean the ice maker as directed, fill it with water and then add a little lemon to the first couple of batches. After that, you'll have perfect ice.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by a017124 Disappointed
The unit produced 1 cycle of ice, then the "needs water" light came on and no amount of water would make it go out. Called Magic Chef and was told that using distilled water would prevent unit from sensing water. I was advised to add teaspoon of salt if using distilled water. Did so and the unit produced very soft ice. So soft that it was easily crushed between two fingers. Contacted Magic Chef again and was told to fax my sales receipt to them. Did so and received acknowledgement of receipt but have had no further contact with Magic Chef.
