This product is easy to use/easy on the eyes!
For seniors that need ice from time to time, this is just enough! When we need extra ice, we bag several refills and put in our freezer. Nice price for a nice product! Don't know how to put a photo with this, so 2 80 yr old people can't try for the $1,000. We did make a moving shelf under our counter so we could pull the ice maker out to fill and drain without picking it up to move it. So depends how you want to use the one you purchase for your use. Enjoy!

    Nice little ice maker
    I bought this to supplement the ice maker in my freezer which has been on vacation making its own frozen drinks for a year or three... stopping and paying for ice at the grocery store was expensive and one day it dawned on me to get an ice machine. This one. The machine came promptly thru the mail, packaged nicely, no issues. I un-boxed it and let it rest so the oil could drain back into the reservoir. The next day I filled it up and it was generating ice cubes within 30 mins. Within 2 days I had re-filled the heavy duty plastic bags from the ice I had purchased and saved, life is god. My only complaint is, I keep my house warm in the summer (TX summer) and this machine is that well insulated. The cubes come out wet and when you put them in the freezer, they all stick together. Minor complaint but that's my only one. Machine is very nice looking and seems well made.

    Works great so far
    Makes ice in a short amount of time and is quiet except when dumping the ice. My only complaint is you have to get the ice out very quickly when the ice full light comes on or it starts to melt.

    Great little machine for patio parties
    We had to return this product because we needed much more ice than it could produce at a time...but if you are looking for something for a party, or family usage - this unit it excellent. Constantly making ice.

    Works great! We have a boat and bag up ice for the weekends.
    This machine looks really nice and works great. It keeps up with our heavy use. We have a boat and bag the ice during the week for the weekends. This machine pays for its self in no time.

    Makes Ice fast. Price is excellent when compared to others
    Plugged in, added water turned on and full tray of ice was ready in about 90 minutes. So far the ice maker seems to work extremely well. It's too soon to assess durability. Assessing energy efficiency is impossible to do since there is nothing to measure. However, the unit is relatively quiet so that me some indication. Satisfied so far.

    Works great but terribly noisy
    This products looks great in my kitchen. It makes 3 different sizes of ice cubes and keeps them till you need them. But it is so noisy. You cannot talk over the machine when it is making the ice cubes.

    LOVE my ice maker!!!
    We recently got soft water and didn't want to eat the ice with the stuff in it. So, we got this and we LOVE it. It does take a little time to make enough ice, but we take the time and bag it up to use over a day or two.

    Good little machine!
    This machine looks nice and makes ice quickly. We bought it because we are remodeling our kitchen and had to move our refrigerator to an area where we can't hook up the water, so instead of buying ice every day or two, we decided to get this machine. It does the job and we are very happy with it.

    Wow it works
    I bought this ice maker about three weeks ago. And I make ice every three days or so I make enough ice to go about three days. This ice maker is fast I fill my freezer up and that's all there is to it. I love this thing.

    Awesome machine!!!
    This thing makes 8 ice cubes every 9 minutes. It is very quiet while running but does make a sound when dumping the ice into the reservoir. Much faster than any freezer ice maker. I've had it for over 6 months with no issues. I would buy it again.

    very nice, makes ice fast
    I got this for my dad because our fridge could not keep up with his ice use. When my husband would go to get ice, there would be none! Now my dad uses this and fills the freezer with ice. Makes ice very fast! We are pleased with it and it looks very nice in my dads room.
