We purchased this model(Kitchenaid version) a few months ago. I am disappointed in the noise it makes. The bin that holds the ice is NOT a freezer so it is constantly melting and making ice.Very noisey,lots of pops,draining,refilling and dropping of ice.We purchased the optional pump, which is also very noisey.The pump created a problem with condensation in the drain trap under the sink from the near freezing water it drains.Be prepared to insulate your drain or have a bucket under it.The ice is thin and during the summer it was very thin.This is due to heat which the unit creates from being built in.We had a fan blowing on it all summer and the ice did get thicker.The ice is barely frozen when it is made so it melts quickly.It also doesn't work well to take it to another freezer, you end up with a solid chunk when it does freeze.So, would I do it again,no,I'd look for one that has a freezer,not a insulated box to hold the ice after it is made.It does make a ton of ice once you have a base of ice built up.Again,this is due to it not being a freezer the first few layers melt pretty fast. The biggest disappointment is the noise. You can not take a nap in the same room with this ice maker,it is too noisey!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
