We like the ice maker. It has some drawbacks. One, it isn't refrigerated, so in effect when it drops ice into the basket it begins to melt immediately. Two, the ice that it makes is soft, and melts quickly when put directly into a drink from basket. You need to put it into the freezer to keep it from melting so fast in a drink. Third, the ice is wet when produced, so it sticks together when stored in your freezer. You need to be sure to store the ice in a container that allows you to ice pick it to break it apart. Plastic containers break easily. Four, the water that it uses comes from your tap. Need to filter it for better ice. Five, a dedicated person needs to be available if you are harvesting ice for the freezer. The ice that falls into the basket needs to be transfered quickly because it starts melting when it hits the basket. It has good points. One, the machine drops ice in about 10 minutes. Two, the cubes that the machine makes are like little cups and size is adjustable. Smaller makes faster. Three, it is a convenient way to make ice for a small to medium get together. In conclusion, we are happy with the machine and would have bought it even with the drawbacks. I would recommend it to a friend,

I purchased this ice machine because I enjoy ice. It did not let me down. I took it on a trip out of state and used it to make enough ice for a party of 40 people and it did great keeping up. It was a big hit.
Ice in 6 mins, indicators on the front to show it is out of water or the bin is full
A little heavy to carry around, needs to have delay setting so I can have fresh ice first thing in the morning.
All in all it is exactly what I expected and works great. I would recommend this item.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DAlbemarle Definitely worth the investment
We had one of these ice makers in the past and loved it. Unfortunately, our first one died and I had to go searching for a new one. This one seemed a good deal - price and features.
Only issue I had was the delivery - the box was slightly crushed on oneside and the vent cover on the unit was popped out as a result. Obviously NOT handled with care either in the warehouse or in the delivery - we don't know which.

We purchased the first one and it worked for about two hours and died. When we got the second one, we again set it up expecting to have ice in a few minutes. What we got instead was a flood. It had a leak in the bottom tray. One defective product is not good, but understandable. Two -- bad news for this manufacturer!

This lil machine is great for making ice in just a few minutes, but the noise is unbearable. I've located the noise problem to be the little fan on the side viberating like crazy and nothing will stop it. Other than that its a great ice maker.
