The silver Frigidare EFIC206 weighs 17.86 pounds with the dimensions of 14.9 x 14.7 x 11.4 inches, is smaller in size than some other different brand ice makers. But it can be a little heavy to lift for some people and they may need a permanent spot. Please note that this ice maker can also be shipped to a few countries outside the US and Amazon will tell you automatically on the product page. It makes solid ice cubes that make the liquid you put them in cold quickly. You can select from two sizes of ice, large and small through the control panel.
Please refer to the user manual or the seller- customer support for cleaning instructions in case of mold at the back or other issues. It is always a good idea to run a cycle with some vinegar in for cleaning the interior. There is no hose to plug into a water line and you need to put the water in yourself- about half a gallon. The compressor runs fairly quietly and the ice maker makes noise only when it’s dropping ice as it is also getting ready for the next batch. There is a “prop 65” warning on the box for those that live in California as required by the politicians in the state for any plastic product.
The ice cubes that it drops will melt after a while and keeps recycling and you need to use them straight away or transfer them into your freezer. According to the instructions manual the ice will be kept frozen up to 18 hours, which we haven’t verified yet. We doubt that this would be the case and it shall melt. What kind of water you want to use is up to you- tap city water or bottled water but it will determine the quality of the ice. It is shipped very quickly via Amazon, does not need any assembly work, is easy to use straight out of the box and makes good quality ice cubes very quickly. You’ll receive good customer support in case of any problems or questions you may have. It offers great value for the dollar.
