My word of advise, it seems that the ratings are either great or horrible and I have a theory on this. Being in the industrial commercial HVAC refrigeration business I know a bit about these units (even as small as they are). During shipment this product is in a box which is in a box which is in another box, this tells me that no one really knows which end is up, refrigeration units need to have the oil and refrigerant in the sumo and the lines clear in order to work properly so after shipping let the unit stand upright for 24 hours to allow all the fluids inside to settle before starting it up for the first time. Not doing this could cause some of the symptoms people are reporting, "runs noisy" "only made one batch of ice then stopped" "didn't work at all" etc. It may not be the cause for every problem but I guarantee it cause some of them, the excitement of receiving the product and running it right away could be the culprit, let it settle in till the next day. BTW this is true for any refrigerator or freezer, if it was on its side for any length of time then it would also need to stand upright before starting it back up, new or used.
I would recommend this product to anyone
The best way to use this is to turn it on when you need to make ice, unless you are going to need a lot in a hurry - then you can freeze the cubes ahead of time.
1) How much ice does it make?
Well, each time it makes a batch, it makes between one and two cups ... that's every 6-10 minutes. So in an hour, it will make 6-10 cups of ice.
2) How much ice does it hold?
I was able to empty 2 trays into a gallon freezer bag (barely), so I'd say that it holds about 1/2 gallon of ice before it automatically shuts off.
3) Do you need to keep it turned on?
You can, but you don't have to. Put the ice you've made into your freezer and turn it off. When you aren't going to use it for awhile, you drain any extra water out so that you can be sure your water to make the ice is fresh and healthy.
4) Will it keep ice frozen?
Actually, Yes. I don't know for how long, but the sides seem stay cool, and it is well insulated, so the ice I made the night before was "still" ice in the morning. The ice sits in a basket over the water supply, so if there is any melting, it drips down and is remade into ice again. I suggest for long-term use, that you simply remove the ice and place it in your freezer.
5) Do you need anything special?
No. You take it out of the box, wash the parts, add water, and turn it on. I'm using purified water, but that's for flavor, NOT because it's required. And, just a "green" note - for the environment and to keep a little green in your pocket - don't buy bottled water for this - it's a lot cheaper (and no bottles to recycle) if you use a purifier or purifying pitcher.
6) Is it noisy?
You can hear the ice cubes clink into the basket every few minutes while it is running. They freeze around little poles, so the only sound is that of water dripping and a small fan which removes the heat (kind of like the one on a refrigerator).
It's a nice solution for those of us who don't have an ice maker in our freezer and who don't have the patience to keep filling those little ice trays to make enough ice!
***Updated June 28, 2010 I have noted that with our recent heat wave, that the ice does melt, however, as I mentioned above, it simply melts into the bottom and then the machine remakes the ice. Not only am I using it for my frappes, but I also found it awesome when I froze four gallons of ice for a large event where I knew I'd need more ice on hand.
*** Updated June 2011 - I have continued to use this machine for a full year. It continues to work well, and I have had NO problems with it. I always like to know how things work over time, so I wanted to come back and give an update. I consider it to be one of my favorite purchases!
*** Updated March 2012 - after our recent move I began experiencing problems with this. I managed to get it working again for about four months, but it has finally stopped working. Because this was such a work horse while I had it, I am considering purchasing the same model. Over time, the little poles on which the ice freezes did develop some corrosion, but it ran almost constantly for nearly two years.
Note I ended up replacing this with the Polar PIM10BLS Stainless Steel Portable Ice Maker which fits under the cupboards better because it opens in the front. However that one died after only five months, and I am repurchasing this one.
*** Updated May 2013 - I finally went ahead and bought a new one as the weather began to warm up. It is so nice to hear the steady clunk of ice again, and to see my familiar friend sitting on the counter. It looks and feels sturdier than the polar one, and I've already gone through two gallons of water. I have noticed on my new one that when I set it on large cubes, they tend to be connected.
But for me, it is frappe time again! .
* July 2016 - just got rid of my second ice maker. Yep, three years. So if you are wondering, my experience with two of these is three years each. AND I keep them running 24/7 for convenience.
UPDATE: After the six months, I realized that by changing the setting from large to medium, it would still make ice. It lasted another three months and then died. NewAir was great about replacing it. I sent in the old one, and had a brand-new one a few days later.
To be fair, we ran the unit 24x7 the whole time we had it, and we go through 20+ pounds of ice a day. I'm expecting the replacement unit to last about a year under the same conditions. So if you do the math, this really is a bargain. If I get 18 months of service from the two units, I would have purchased 540 bags of ice at roughly $3/bag, for a total of $1620. Instead, I get the same amount of ice for $180 (plus the cost of RO water & electricity) and no need to lug ice home from the store!
With regard to cleaning: This unit needs to be sanitized every couple of months. I found that white vinegar in a spray bottle works great. Spray the inside, let it sit, and then rinse it out. I then refill the unit with about a cup of vinegar and run it through a tank of water. One more clean tank of water, the vinegar taste is gone, and the machine is sanitized.
Update 7/3/17 - My replacement unit died today. Functioned as expected, lasting a little less than a year. It's clear that the manufacturer sells this exact unit to multiple brands with custom badging. I'm going to buy this same unit from one of the other brands here on Amazon and keep the NewAir around for spare parts... If you go this route and use the machine daily, expect to get 9-12 months out of it, and buy the 4 year replacement plan!
