With a 150-watt power (110V, 60Hz) it is designed to make ice cubes quietly and without using much energy, thanks to its decent modern compressor and Energy Star rating.
It doesn’t have the side drains like some of the other models but has an underside inner bottom drain plug. There is no need to lift the ice maker for draining water. You will see the ice making clearly though the good size transparent window. The indicator warning light will tell you when you need to put more water in or when the ice basket is full. You’ll get a detachable ice basket and a BPA-free plastic ice scoop. You can email or call their customer support team if you have any questions or problems. It is easy to operate with a control panel with a user-friendly design. You probably want to use pure filtered water rather than tap water for the better tasting ice.
You can use the ice it makes for other purposes as well, like relieving pain after a surgery, curing burns etc. The stainless steel exterior is easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth. It is pretty much a plug and play type unit that doesn’t need any complex installation. You just put water into the water reservoir below the ice basket manually and there is no permanent water hook up. You won’t need to stock a lot of ice in the fridge, because this ice maker can get your ice cubes ready within just 7-9 minutes to keep your drinks cool, especially in the summer.
