Bought this at Target a few weeks back after I noticed it was on sale for 109.00. Been wanting one for a long time, but didnt really want to spend 200+ on one. So far so good, Small, pumps out ice quickly, we use Ice in everything we drink, so it keeps right up with us. I would have given this 5 stars but the only issue I have with this, is that its very noisy. When the tray lifts up to drop the ice into the basket the elevation noise is quite loud. but have gotten used to it I think :0.. Friends of ours have several different brands of these ranging in high and low pricing, and for the money, they are all the same.. I would recommend this product without a doubt.

I desperately needed to get one of these portable ice makers, since I live in an apartment where the fridge does not have an ice maker and getting one is not an option. I waited until I found a unit for a price I was willing to pay and this Emerson unit fit the bill.

Yes, the unit is big and heavy. But it is so great to be able to have as much ice as you want whenever you want. The unit makes ice beautifully, in three different sizes. The cubes are a bit smaller than I expected, but that's OK. You can always select the large setting for bigger cubes. (I usually use medium.) The unit makes 9 cubes at a time, and it takes maybe 20 minutes to make the first batch of ice, maybe 10-15 minutes for consecutive batches.

The cubes are tubular in shape, with holes in the middle. The design makes them easy to put in Ziploc bags and store in your freezer until needed. (No need to run the machine every single day!) If they stick together, a little whack should separate the cubes.

A couple of things to keep in mind:

Before using the unit for the first time, add a little vinegar to the water and let the machine run. Dump the ice and and drain the water. Then, do a run with some lemon juice in the water. Again, dump the ice and drain. Then do a few runs with clean water. If you don't do this, the ice will have a bit of a chemical taste, even after several runs. (I thought several runs of plain water would clear up the taste, but it didn't. The vinegar and lemon juice, however, did the trick beautifully.) Also, you should probably use filtered water for a cleaner taste. (I use water from my sink that has gone through my Pur facuet filter.)

The plug for the water drainage is VERY small. Be careful with it.

Some really straight talk here:

The Emerson Emerson Portable Ice Maker and Magic Chef MCIM22TW Magic Chef Portable Ice Maker White MCIM22TW units and those "identical to these" (available on Amazon/elsewhere) (Description: 12"w x14"d x15"h case, curved but relatively flat front case w/diagonal canted front control pad, and left-side drain plug ---- are the best units to buy (reliable, reasonably quiet, good ice volume). We have had problems with the Igloo (narrower case slightly different design and appearance. 9'W x 14"d x 12"h significantly curved front case also with diagonally canted control panel). The narrow case units are generally ~$40 cheaper than the recommended larger square case units. The best of these units will work for at least ~2-years. That's a lot considering they are mechanical devices with a small sealed refrigeration system in them. Commercial grade units are substantially(!) more expensive, use more electricity, and generally require a water supply hookup. When you consider the cost of bagged ice and the hassle of trips to buy/lug it, these units are a time saver - but they are not commercial grade, with the commercial grade price so please keep your expectations realistic.

How to identify the unit you want:

The units come in many colors but generally white or silver. They are similar in appearance and size to counter-top bread makers that were popular years ago (and that made your house smell so good).

Our National Guard unit is currently serving in Afghanistan and amazingly, ice here is hard to find. So...I did what the next guy would do and started searching the internet for a compact and convenient ice maker. I decided on this product by luck of the draw I guess, and it was bad luck that I ended up purchasing. This piece of crap failed to work right of the box after following the instructions exactly. I contacted customer service at Emerson to see what they could do for us. Well, turns out that since the item was shipped out of the U.S to us here in Afghanistan, the warranty is now void and there is nothing they can do. So much for standing behind their product! So, needless to say, this is the last item I will be purchasing from Emerson. Well, since the warranty is now void, we employed our electricians to troubleshoot the unit and possibly repair it. Well, it turns that the compressor motor is siezed which in turn burnt a portion of the circuit board. Repairing the circuit board was quite easy, however, the compressor motor is a different animal. Amazingly, this so called "brand new" product arrived to us in an unusable condition and the manufacturer refuses to warranty it. As far as we are concerned, Emerson can keep their junk and their slogan, " We at Emerson Radio are committed to your satisfaction and will work diligently to help satisfy your needs" is a bunch of crap!
