The average customer rating is 4.3 out of 5 stars by 24 users at the time of this product review. It has a powerful and energy efficient 120-watt R600a/0.8 oz compressor that can help make 9 solid ice cubes each cycle and running fairly quietly. It consumes roughly 1 kWh every 10 hours, which is like 40% less than a standard ice maker. The total daily capacity of 28.7 pounds or 13kg. is equal to enough ice cubes for 100 glasses of cold drinks.
These are small bullet shaped ice cubes that can fit in the bottles and glasses. The ice cubes are quite solid and melt slower than normal and they do not stick together. This makes them ideal for chewing as well if you like chewing ice. It has an aluminum fin condenser, great heat dissipation with the built-in cooling fan and better thermal efficiency. The noise level is specified as 43 decibels with the integrated spoiler that helps decrease the noise. So it will not disturb your conversation, music or TV.
With the infrared light-receiving diode it senses when you need to add more water or when the ice basket is full and gives you smart notifications with the light indicators of “Add Water” and “Ice Full”. The upgraded cyclopentane thick foam layer offers better insulation, isolating the external heat. You can have ice cubes in there for a little bit- depending on the ambient temperature, but for better fresher taste you’re better off using them in your drinks or transfer them to your freezer. The ice basket has a 31 oz. (880g)capacity and the reservoir has 62.6 oz. (1.85L). The ice hardness or density is 1 g/cm3.
You have the convenient buttons on the user-friendly LED-backlit interface and the ice maker is easy to operate. You just add some water into the reservoir, turn on the ice maker and wait for it to make 9 solid ice cubes. The ice cube size is standard- there is no ice selection option on this model and with one basket of ice you can make 7 cold drinks. It can’t be connected to a water or drain line as you just add water yourself and use the included drain plug at the bottom to be able to clean it easily.
