Is the ice bin removable? If so, is it easy to remove and replace? I'll be using it to fill up coolers each day.

Answer: 
Yes, super easy , but..... It makes & holds about 2.7 lbs before you empty. It takes several hrs to cycle 2.7 lbs. If you have a large ice chest, you'd be better off buying a 10 lb bag from Wally world each day. You probably won't have time to sit around waiting for 10 lbs of ice from this ice maker. This is not designed to fill ice multiple ice chests, if, in fact, even one.

Answer: 
the ice basket is removeable very easy to remove and replace but if you are going to be filling coolers everyday I would suggest when bin is full empty into a freezer proof container and store in you freezer so the ice machine can make you plenty of ice

Does this machine keep the ice frozen after it is made? It says "stores 2.7 pounds."

Answer: 
Yes Ice stays frozen...if it does thaw a little over time the water goes back into the holding tank and recycles back thru to make more ice.. Has auto shut down mode when ice basket full

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't make 49 lbs. I compared this with my NewAir ice maker and found they both make exactly the same amount of ice, approx. 25 lbs. The quality of ice was very good. September 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 49 lb. portable ice maker in stainless steel The ice maker performs to all of its listed features. September 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ice maker works fantastic! It is quieter than most ice makers and it makes a ton of ice. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 49 lb portable ice maker in SS This ice maker is not cheap...neither is a BMW. You get what you pay for...usually. This is a winner. Makes 'em fast, tray holds a lot if you let it fill up...& it doesn't take long to fill up. Totally pleased. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it!! So glad I went up a size! Drops ice every 12 min! Didn't think it could keep up, but it does great!! Highly recommend this machine!! Spend the little extra and get this 49lb one! July 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Keeps our teachers cool! The ice maker was a teacher appreciation gift for our staff and has been well received. It works quickly and supplies our daily needs! May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by don't know why I didn't purchase before now This ice maker is everything it claims to be and then some.. I was sceptical about durability and production of this machine but with 2 teenage boys in the house that never fill a ice tray and really not enough room to purchase bagged Ice I decided to try this method it has not only kept us in ice around the clock when we need it it has also kept a little peace in this moms world one of the best purchases I've ever made and very easy to set up and use just plug it up fill with water and set the cube size you literally have ice in just a few short minutes and I was impressed it is actually Stainless Steel and not plastic to look like it is July 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT purchase! Got this before Christmas, works like a charm. Makes more ice than we really can use. It is NOT a freezer, so ice must be removed and put into your freezer or it will eventually melt, but it IS a 'maker' not a freezer. Easy to fill, remove ice, and clean. No more juggling ice trays in the freezer!! January 6, 2016
