Are the ice cubes hollow or solid?

Don't care for hollow ice cubes, they melt too fast!

49 lb. Portable Ice Maker in Stainless Steel is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes lots of ice! We bought this same ice maker 2 years ago and loved it! Makes lots of ice quickly. It worked great and then stopped working. I bought another one just like it because my husband couldn't stand not having a good ice maker (we have a refrigerator that has a bottom drawer freezer so the ice making capacity is dismal!). In the meantime, my husband contact Whyner and is working on having the first ice maker serviced. Once that's fixed, we will bring it to our condo at the river to use.

I've owned two smaller ice makers from different companies that were adequate, but not great - this ice maker is incredible! It makes ice quickly and I n large quantities. Directions were not real clear, but you can figure them out. Only issue might be size - it does take up a lot of counter space. However, if you use a lot of ice, this one is a winner.

The footprint is bigger than expected but makes plenty of ice for a family of 3. The ice basket is about double the size of the Igloo. Very happy with it so far. We have had it for about 2 months.

Once we ran through a few cycles on initial set up - we produce more ice than we can use in a day, being there is only 2 of us. We also have plenty when company comes over. Nice to never run out when you need it.
