    I bought this for use at my office. I can make enough ice in one day to last at least 10 days in an office of 20 people. The self clean feature is easy to use. The ice doesn't have a weird taste and there are 3 sizes to choose from. The only draw back is that the tray the ice cubes fall in to fills up faster than the water is used up to make the cubes. You have to empty it about 4 times if you fill the water level to the mark. We bag it and keep it in the freezer. The machine needs to sit right next to a sink to drain. The plug is set in the side of the machine and there is no hose to help it drain.

    Overall this is ONE GREAT ICE MACHINE!. Easy to operate. Makes enough ice in one day to last 4-5 days, for Hubby and I. Love the fact that it holds a gallon of water at a time and makes the gallon baggie of ice. I put back enough ice in the freezer for a 4th. of July cookout. We used a large open top drink container which I put our drinks and ice in and still had plenty of ice for glasses also. (We had 6 people.) The only thing bad about it so far has been that the tiny plug for the drain got lost the first time I used it. I put plumbers tape around the threads of the cap to stop it from leaking, so be prepared just in case.

    This ice maker was mostly outstanding for the first 14 months. It made tons of ice and fast! Occasionally, the only problem we encountered was that it would turn itself off periodically for no known reason (not low on water or anything). However, it recently stopped working. None of the warning/error lights are on. The display appears that it should be working, but it will not make ice. The warranty was only good for 12 months, so it's time to purchase a replacement. It was good while it lasted, but it should have lasted longer than 14 months!

    Overall, very pleased with this purchase. It makes a great amt of ice in a short time. It touts a self clean feature. This means you have to measure 1c vinegar and 1 c water to run through unit in self clean mode. You must then run a normal batch of ice through to get rid of the vinegar smell/taste. To me, that doesn't completely seem "self cleaning" bc I still have to go a considerable amount of effort. Like I said though, we are glad we made the purchase bc it does what it's supposed to do: make ice.

    We purchased this ice machine as a temporary solution for ice while our office kitchen is being remodled. It has been fabulous! With our old industrial ice maker we would constantly run out of ice. Since purchasing this we have not run out of ice once! Which is a huge feat considering we have over 100 people that use it though out the day. It's user friendly and has exceeded all of our expectations.

    Great ice maker for the price

    Great little ice maker for the price! It produces all the ice I need in a day and starts producing quickly. I like the shape of the ice, which is similar to a hollow bullet. It's easy to fill and easy to drain. The quality of the unit appears good, but I guess time will tell. I have been using this ice machine for 3 weeks. The only negative I have is the sound of the ice dropping and being deposited in the plastic basket. The noise can be a distraction at times.

    When the icemaker in our refrigerator died we found it would be expensive & difficult and difficult to replace. Then we looked at standalone ice makers and found this unit. It is quiet, simple, and makes lots of Ice very fast, way more than our refrigerator ever did. We now fit 3X the ice in the same space in the refrigerator freezer. We also take this outdoors whenever needed. We have absolutely no regrets.

    Does my family of four great and along with a couple employees ( we supply water bottles and soda pop in a 100+ qt cooler and fill with ice each day) The basket on the ice machine isn't very big therefore I keep dumping the ice into a tubberware bin in the freezer to get enough ice for the end of each day for all our coolers.
