    best ice maker i have used so far

    Love the ice machine. Makes ice quickly when it is needed such as during the hot summer months. However, when you turn it on trought out the 1st 3 baches since it would take some time for it too chil the water and for the coolent to get to the correct tempertures. Also there is no clening of ice trays it is all done by the cooling pips that sit in a water dish. As soon as it freezes it it would add a small amount of heat to release the ice. The only drawback is you would have to fill the water tank every so often so there is suficent water for it to make ice. Does who do not have a freezer this may not be a good fit since the unit is inselted but the ice bucket is not chiled but inselted so ice will not stay frozen for a long time but it will recycle any melted ice that is in the unit

    So far this is working real well. It is a little noisy but nothing that is a problem. The ice is very nice and it does provide enough for us through out the day. We tend to run it throughout each day. So far the only things that I would say it could improve upon would be the indicator light really needs to be brighter. It is hard to tell if it is on or not when it is not actually making ice. The other thing is ours turns off and we aren't sure why. It could be a small child pushed a button or we accidentally bumped the button, not really sure. Otherwise we love it.

    Ordered online and had shipped to the house. Product arrived on time and was to be used for a New Years Eve party. Set it up and plugged it in a few days early. It made one batch of small thin bullets, after that it would just dump water into the ice basket. Never made ice again. For the price I really expected it to at least do it's job and make ice. Returning item.

    We obtained the Whynter portable ice maker and were excited about its appearance, functionality, and cleaning feature. However, after one week, it stopped working. We called the Whynter toll free number and left messages with no calls back. Finally, we got a hold of someone and now have to go through a lengthy returns process. Very disappointed!

    When we have company over the ice maker in our refrigerator can't keep up. I would always have to run the corner convenience store for more ice. Now that we have this ice maker, I am the one who can't keep up! Makes ice fast and very quiet. We have had it a month now and are very happy with it.

    Stopped working shortly after one year. No warning that it was going out. The water tray that holds water up to the cold rods stopped moving. This is my second one of these models. Be sure to buy at least a two year warranty.

    I have had several icemakers on the counter and this one is by far the best. I love the size and amount of ice it can put out. I can do lots of ice by placing it in the freezer. The bucket holds enough ice to almost fill a gallon size ziploc bag.
