Makes lots of ice
I have an older refrigerator whose ice maker stopped working. I had lots of room in the ice compartment and I tried this ice maker to see if it would fill my ice needs. I love ice water, and especially in this summer's heat. I got it off the shelf, plugged in, washed and cleaned it and seven minutes later ice fell. I am not sure about using it everyday when one desires a cold drink, but if stored in a large plastic bag in your freezer, why not? It makes a lot of ice with only 24 ounces of water, it drains with ease, easy clean, fresh ice, clean water, money saver, and fast.

    Amazing!
    I have a vintage apartment that gets very hot in summer and my freezer is way too small to keep up w making enough ice via trays - so I got this machine to be able to have ice and I’m shocked how amazing it is! Phenomenal value for the price! Highly recommend! I am just one person so this is perfect for me. It produces about 10 cubes at a time. I am currently working to fill a huge container to keep in the freezer, it is taking a few hours but that’s bc my kitchen was very hot when i started. I noticed the cubes are much stronger and way less melty now that it’s been going for a while, when I first started it they were a little watery. I’m sure it’s bc my kitchen was sunny and hot and I used room temp water. A few tips: use cold water in the reservoir not room temp, keep the machine out of the sun otherwise it will take longer to make the cubes, that’s a mistake I made. Had I known that I would have put the machine in the living room where the AC is the coldest and i’m sure it would’ve taken half the time. All in all, highly recommend!

        This is really nice! It had some mixed reviews. After reading the instruction manual I understand why they’re mixed reviews. People didn’t read the instructions first. You have to let it sit for 24 hours before you plug it in or the coolant will not work. So read your instructions people and your equipment might work.

        I haven’t had this machine for a month yet and it stopped working. It says ice full but there’s no ice in it. It literally just made ice & I just emptied the basket when it said ice full. Now it doesn’t want to make ice apparently. I’m highly disappointed. I literally just bought this on 7/5/20. I’m really annoyed like seriously MagicChef come on.

        Not bad at all
        I absolutely love ice I’m a ice eater. I eat ice any chance I get and crave it when I don’t eat it. I love this ice maker however, it’s so slow it takes forever. I hate how this machine makes 5-7 cubes every 6 minutes, that’s too long for me. It’s not enough ice dropping in that period of time. It goes through 3 maybe 4 runs depending on how much water you put in for the ice to be full and taken out. I have to keep checking to see if the red light come on so I can empty the basket so more ice can be made. Moreover, I managed to start making ice right away when I get low and put it in a large zip loc bag.

          Great Gadget, has flaws and will be returning. Sad had high hopes!
          I've been eying this for a while, my kids and I love Ice and they're Rootbeer freaks! So we go through a lot of ice, but I have to buy bags of ice, It takes up a lot of room in my freezer and ALWAYS sticking together. I need to use a meat Hammer to break it up every time. So I finally bought this the other day, very cool concept however, the Ice is very small and not hard enough. The chamber doesn't hold too much Ice, yes it will produce a lot in a day but you'd be needing to empty it to your freezer. A glass ( like in my picture ) almost empties the chamber ! Not Cool ! The bigger issue is the Ice melts down in the unit rapidly, and the ice get's stuck together. Also the unit can't keep the ice cold enough, and the ice is very soft, way too soft. .. Which in turn, melts into your drink rapidly as well. Not sure what application this would be suitable for, possibly a pool area but it's really not practical. Fun to watch and the amount of water it uses makes a lot of ice in that respect. Bummer, had high hopes for this and now I'll be back to bagged Ice.

            I've owned this a few weeks now and had no issues with it. We have a similar one at our office, and now WFH it's one thing I miss. It makes new ice every ten minutes, meaning it doesn't take long to fill the basket. It is louder than I expected but not so loud to be unbearable. I'm using filtered water to ensure the ice, and machine, are clean as possible. I recommended this to my neighbor as a good value for the price.

              I bought last year this ice maker stop to works error lights "add water" or "full ice" finally stop to work , I tried to return to Home Depot only was returnable 90 days . I use the warranty they told me that cut the cord send a picture with the model and I got a new - because they don't provide service in Northen VA . The second one brand new ice maker broke less than a year , no extended warranty, just waste money.

                We have had this ice maker for 3 weeks and we are very happy with our purchase. On Saturdays I make ice throughout the day to fill the bin in the freezer and we have ice all week. I have a clip on fan that I use to help the unit bring in cool air while making ice and it helps to dry the unit out after making ice. I use cold water from the refrigerator which I believe helps in getting the machine to freeze the ice a little faster. Easy to chew cubes when you are done with your beverage.

                I have had the Magic Chef 27 lb. Portable Countertop Ice Maker (in Silver) for a little over a month and we love it! First off, the website makes a big deal about the color... that is subjective and has nothing to do with operation. We thought the camo one was neat, but certainly did not go with our stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. Pro's: Freeze cycle is relatively short for large cubes. Easy to operate. Easy to clean. Drain is on bottom of unit, not side like competitors. Simple design and intuitive controls anyone can operate. Includes ice scoop and removable ice basket. The small cube setting will produce a cube that will fit into a 16.9 oz water bottle. When the ice tray is full there is a warning light on panel. When the water level is too low it will trigger a low-water light on the panel. If you get either warning light, there is no other warning to tnd to the machine and if you wait too long the ice will begin to melt. Con's: This unit is loud, in several ways. The sound of the cooling unit creates a fair amount of white noise. This is not a soft hum, but probably about 50 decibels when the circulation fan is running and just a bit louder when the cubes drop. When the cubes hit the empty plastic tray, the first few cycles make a loud clatter. This stops by the fourth or fifth cycle and you just hear the ice rattle a bit as the cubes drop. The ice compartment is not refrigerated and requires you to stay on top of removing ice or it will begin to melt. The cubes can be a little wet if you are not on top of emptying the basket, which leads to them sticking together in the freezer. I try to shake them up as I add to our freezer, to keep them from freezing into clumps. Those are the straight facts. My opinion of this model is high. My wife and I spent a few weeks researching all of the 'top 10 ice maker models' for the last three years online and found the best balance of price versus operational features with this model for our needs. The first two or three cycles when you first turn the unit on, whether set for large or small cubes, produces only small cubes. This is because the fingers that create the cubes are not cold enough. We have gotten in the habit of keeping the catch-basket out for the first few cycles, to let the undersized cubes drop into the water reservoir to be recycled. I checked the cycle time for large cubes against their claim and I think it produces cubes faster than their estimate. Once at operating temp, it will drop 9 cubes every 5-6 minutes. I took the 5 lb bag from the last commercial ice I purchased and filled it in about an hour to an hour and a half. I have heeded the warnings of others that left comments and reviews and am only using bottled water in it. Others have stated if you use tap water and it is hard or soft, you will get a buildup of minerals and it will make it tough to clean and make the ice taste funny (my wife's biggest issue with ice-tray ice). The other caution is to empty the machine when its not running and to wipe it out between uses. So far we have not had any issues with cleaning or taste. We use it almost every day to fill a 5 lb tray in our freezer. I will also note that the cubes are not clear. I understand this is because of oxidation in how the ice is released from the fingers. This does not affect the taste of the ice at all. So far we love this unit and can only hope to get a long life out of it. I would highly recommend this product if you want to make ice to fill your freezer. My only caution is if you purchase this specifically for entertaining, do not expect it to keep up with demand for more than a few people. I use two cycles of ice typically for an iced tea, lemonade or mixed drink. If you are in a party environment and use the same amount, it will only make 4 - 5 drinks an hour. Expectations that it will keep up with demand at a family picnic would be unreasonable, unless you started making ice hours or even a day in advance.

                Works great! Our ice maker in our freezer has not worked for quite a while and this is better than ice trays or buying ice. Some reviews talk about the ice being wet. Well, it is made from water so not sure what they expect. Makes ice quickly. I dump it into the dispenser on my freezer and the turning mechanism breaks it up so it dispenses easily. Can choose from 2 sizes and dispenses bullet shaped ice. This is NOT a freezer and you cant store ice but the description explains that Definitely worth the money!

                  Works well. In about 5 hours I filled up a one gallon size Ziploc freezer bag. It makes some noise but nothing extreme. It doesn't keep your ice frozen in the basket but that's not a problem for me because I plan to store a couple bags in the freezer. Overall I like it, it's much faster than using ice cube trays and way cleaner than buying bags of ice from a random store where they might not even clean their machine.

                    Bought this to replace an older model Magic Chef ice maker that I got at a yard sale yeeaaarrrrs ago and it ran like a champ until the water pump died on it after faithfully making ice for many moons. Ordered a no-name on Amazon that died after about 4 months...should've known (if it ain't broke don't fix it). So I went back to Magic Chef and I'm well pleased thus far. Runs quiet, kicks out plenty of ice and is much more stylish and more compact (same ice making capacity though) than the first Magic Chef I bought. Stick with what works is the moral of this story...

                    This unit works very well! It's not too loud, and makes Ice very quickly! The only reason it's not getting 5 stars is because the ice builds up at the drop in location, and therefore registers as if the ice bin is full, and stops producing ice until you notice and move the ice out of the way. This usually happens around the third or fourth ice making session however, so if you are regularly dumping your ice into another container, or using it as it's being made, then you won't have that issue.
