Check out this helpful review…

My refrigerator ice maker died a few times and we gave up trying to fix it. I have been without an ice maker for over a year. Making ice cubes in trays really puts the kibosh on wanting to use ice. For Mother’s Day, I decided that I wanted an ice maker. This is the one I decided on. So far it has been great. I put three cups of water in, and it makes nine ice cubes at a time. It probably takes about two hours to use up most of the water. Towards the end, when the water is almost gone, the ice cubes start to look the size of sliced olives. If you don’t take the ice out as it makes it, it could start melting as there’s no way for the machine to freeze it in there. Also if you don’t take the ice out, it could stop making ice because there’s a point where it stops making ice if it is too full.

When the machine is finished with a batch of cubes, I use the little scoop that came with the machine to put them into a silicone measuring cup I already had. Then I dump the ice into the place in my freezer where they are supposed to have been made by my freezer ice maker. Sigh. I can use the ice dispenser in my refrigerator this way. That’s why I use three cups of water. For our average use for three of us who actually use the ice, that’s enough for a few days. I learned that you don’t want to make too much because the ice freezes together and it doesn’t break up that easily.

Once it has made all the cubes it can with the water I supplied, I turn it off and wait a bit until whatever ice it’s trying to make melts again. Then I unplug it and take it to the sink to drain it. There’s a little drain plug on the bottom right corner for easy draining. This machine is making me happy because I can have cold beverages again!

    While I don’t have this one, for anyone on the fence just buy it. It’s a decent price and while it doesn’t make ice instantly it’s not hard to adapt a habit to. I turn mine on as soon as I get home from work as I pass by it into the rest of the house. Given the cost to get into the car and go buy ice, this to me is a no brainer as I don’t have the freezer space to make ice. Just remember to take it apart every once in a while to clean inside the top (not hard – YouTube is great).

    I have this ice maker and it’s so convenient ! I like using bottled water and making ice when needed then I store any extras in the freezer. It’s nice for parties too. It’s not too noisy and so far easy to keep clean.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      That sounds great! Thank you for the review, Kimsole!🙌🙌

    I have it and we like the ice it makes, but it’s annoying that the ice melts in the ice maker pretty quickly. I go to grab some to put in the freezer, and it says it’s full but it’s not. I have to push it down and then there’s room for more ice

    Thanks to H2S for posting this deal, and thanks to those who posted reviews here. It helped me make the decision to buy one of these for my mom for her birthday. She loves ice and uses about 10 ice cube trays that take up almost all the room in her small freezer (and are a hassle to keep refilling & stacking on top of each other), so this will be perfect! With the record heat waves we’ve had during past summers, this ice maker will be so handy to have on hand. I don’t mind paying the extra $10 to get her the mint color, since that’s her favorite 🙂

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Justine! Hope she loves it! Happy Birthday to your mom! 🥳❤️
