Nugget or sonic ice is softer and airier than the regular hard ice cubes and you can chew on them. You can use the ice it makes in a variety of your cold beverages and the pellet ice maintains the flavors.
This countertop ice machine generates a batch of nugget ice in 18 minutes for a total of 26 pounds in 24 hours, and you may have 3.3 pounds in the ice bin at a time. It has a good quality compressor and a powerful fan for starting the freezing process and decreasing the heat. And it works quietly at a reduced noise level of just 50 decibels. With the smart sensors it will stop making ice when the ice bin is full and will continue when you remove the ice. As the ice melts, water will get back into the water reservoir for making more ice.
The ice making machine can be connected to a water supply for hassle-free Auto Water Refill. And you have the option to put water in the reservoir manually. To use the Self Cleaning function you just press the Clean button for 3 seconds to start a 5-minute cycle to flush water through the interior. And you may wipe it clean manually with a diluted detergent. It is also easy to drain the used water through the pipes. Please note that it does not work as a freezer and you need to transfer the ice it makes into your fridge freezer or use it in your drinks.
The pebble shaped ice it makes are only found in restaurants and you can have fun chewing on them after soaking in your beverages. If you fill the water tank with cold filtered water from the fridge the ice making will be faster. It makes great quality ice quickly and in decent amounts. The ice it makes is soft nugget ice layers of flaked ice frozen together with pockets of air in the nuggets that make them chewy. In the box you’ll get the RaySonics Nugget Ice Maker, a user manual, 3.3lb. capacity ice bin and scoop. It is offered with a warranty of 12 months from when you buy it and 18 month extension with registration, and good customer support for any problems or questions you may have.
