I really like this small, easy-to-use ice maker. It has a very small footprint, makes lots of top-quality ice, and performs exactly as advertised. My wife drinks quite a bit of water all day, so she uses a few pounds of ice daily. We had to keep six or seven ice trays in the freezer at all time, and an ice bucket to hold more ice. The new ice maker means more space in the freezer for food, which is great since my wife makes all the food for our baby. We have more room in the freezer for the baby's food, and plenty of ice for my water-chugging wife. Only one, small complaint - the start-up instructions tell the user to clean the new machine by running a solution of vinegar and water through the system for two days. It actually took about four days for all the vinegar to get cleared out of the system. The ice bucket on this unit would get full of vinegary ice, which I dumped. I then had to refill the unit with clean water to continue rinsing out the system. We were very happy to finally get untainted ice on the fifth day. I recommend using the alternate cleaning method using a solution of lemon juice and water, which will not leave a nasty taste in one's mouth.

I just received the ice maker, and saw the exterior. The front was stainless steel and the sides were cream colored plastic that was peeling. My first thought was "Uh, oh... this is going back!" Then I realized that the machine's exterior was entirely made out of solid stainless steel and the plastic was just a protective coating so that it did not get scratched during production and shipping.

And that shipping was SUPER FAST, by the way! Ordered Sunday, received Tuesday. Amazon Prime speed, but merely listed as "free shipping".

Back to the body of the ice maker. It was annoying to have to peel off the protective coating - and I didn't quite get all of it off, but many new appliances come that way. Underneath the plastic, it looked like some scratches had made it on the machine, but I was able to rub them away with my index finger.

I thought the unit didn't come with instructions, but my son had "helped" me unpack the unit, and I eventually did find the instructions and warrantee card.

We are very excited to get started, but the instructions say that the machine has to sit upright for 2 hours before you start it so that the coolant can settle into place. I have cleaned the machine and the removable water pipe and plan to fill the tank with water and vinegar. Another reviewer said that it took five days for the vinegar taste to cycle through, but I am doing what is listed as routine maintenance, and the instructions with my machine say:

1. Take out the basket.
2. Add a mild cleaning solution mixture to the water reservoir. Use a 10:1 ratio of water to either white vinegar or lemon juice.
3. Run the ice maker to make a couple of batches of ice (at least 2). Discard the ice.

This ice maker is all that it's advertised. Makes clear square ice just like in a restaurant. it's easy to use and clean. I thought that I would be constantly filling it up, but as the ice in the bin melts, the water is recycled. I have been drinking 10 time more water these days thanks to clear -no freezer taste- ice.

I love that the ice is clear, it's the reason I bought it vs. other machines. However, the cubes are not a solid cube of ice and therefore tend to melt very quickly. Since I keep a glass of water at my desk all day long, it's a bit irritating that I have to keep getting more ice so often. Thus, making it necessary to make more ice more often. Had I known this prior to buying this machine, I would not have made this purchase. I would rather have had a machine that provides solid ice instead.

Pros. My third counter-top ice-maker--all similarly priced. My first EdgeStar. Every day, all day use. First one made tubular, opaque ice, small amounts, ice melted rapidly, device lasted about 1 1/2 yrs and stopped functioning. Second unit similar to EdgeStar, made clear ice, came out in almost solid blocks, very difficult to break apart, took about 45 mins or longer to make first batch each day, loud, and almost impossible to get into crevices to clean. It, too, lasted about 1 1/2 yrs and began leaking what looked like freon into the water. Have had the EdgeStar for a few months. Very quiet. Produces beautifully clear ice, large batches, sheets break apart very easily, only takes a few minutes for each batch, and entire bin is over-flowing in very short amount of time. More exposed areas (fewer inaccessible crevices) for easier thorough cleaning than with the two prior ice-makers. Very helpful online video covering main points of unit's operation--but could be a little more detailed. At this point, I'm extremely happy with it. Would recommend.
Cons. A thick protective coating is not just wrapped around the assembled unit. Unit is assembled with the coating already on the separate pieces, which makes it almost impossible to remove. In other words, the screws, outer edges, etc., are all assembled on top of the tough plastic coating. The coating is stuck in between all the seams. Especially difficult to remove from the bottom of the unit, since you can't tip it on its side. It takes two people to get the stuff off--one person holding the unit over the edge of the counter, and a second person getting underneath to remove. When we opened the box, a couple of screws were just floating around loose in the bottom.
