    Perfect for One

    Machine performs as claimed. It works quietly, and regularly churns out ice every 15 minutes. Ice 'cubes' are shaped like little thimbles. Machine stops operating when basket is full or water is out. You must manually pour water into this machine. Melting ice is re-made into ice on a regular basis. The ice provides its' own "refrigeration.' Water left in the unit CAN grow moldy and stale. A full ice basket is just about enough ice to fill a large coffee mug. Combined with the production rate, this means the machine is just right for one person on a hot summer day. For the single person, this machine is a great supplement to a 'dorm' fridge.

    What a pleasant surprise the little gem has been. Although it's somewhat noisy, it cranks out more ice that a grown group of three people can keep up with. When it's full, it simply stops making ice until the top ice is removed. The ice is a little soft and bullet shaped with a hole in it, my favorite. The ice you leave in the unit does not stay frozen, but in my experience it doesn't melt either. It just sticks together somewhat and is easy to break apart. We couldn't be more pleased with our purchase. We also got the 5 year extended warranty plan, as it was so economical.

    Great until it stopped working

    I had this since March and it is now September. When it was working, it was great. It gave you 2 options of small or large bullet ice. It made me drink more water since I had ice readily on hand. I always used filtered water and it always stayed on my counter. But a few weeks ago, it stopped working. It leaks out the water that it pulled and does not make ice. It also says that it is full, when there is no ice in the basket. I was happy until this happened. The product should last longer than 7 months. Very disappointed.

    When our refrigerator ice maker ran out of ice during one of our hot summers, I went online and purchased this ice maker. It's compact size allows me to use it on my kitchen countertop and is very easy to use. It has different settings for the size of ice you want it to make. I found the right size that can dispense through my refrigerator ice maker without a problem. I'm glad I made this purchase.

    This machine was a waste of money. After about three cycles of creating ice cubes, the machine flashes the red ADD WATER light (even though there is plenty of water in the reservoir) and then cuts off. The machine then needs to be turned off and re-cycled. Usually after two or three attempts at this, you can get a couple of successful batches of ice and then it's time to start re-cycling it again. If you make the same mistake we made by purchasing this, then good luck.

    There 3 adults in my family we live in the hottest part of AZ we never run out of ice we empty the ice basket in a tray in our freezer all day and shut it off at night. The nice from the machine is wet ice nou when put in freezer turns solid in short time , we love it it will pay for itself in short time compared to buying bagged ice.

    The icemaker in the fridge is broken. Purchasing a counter-top icemaker was cheaper than fixing the fridge. It was a good decision. I always have an ice supply. It works fast, and the best part is that it never overfills the ice bin. When it's full, it just melts some ice and starts over.

    Works better that prior counter top ice maker but I'm getting the impression they are all temperamental. Frequently have to turn off and on when full of water and "Add Water" light comes on. Once it gets going will make great ice and lots of it.
