*I am NOT a paid reviewer. I do NOT work for the company. I REALLY did purchase this product.* Simply said: WE LOVE THIS ICE MAKER! Very pleasantly surprised by the exterior quality - very attractive & extremely durable. Doesn't take up a huge amount of counter space, which was nice - but it DOES need space for the fan on the side. The stand-by mode for the initial cleaning (which you do before using it) was a bit confusing - it didn't function in the way the instructions said it would, but we ran the clean mode a few times and felt confident it was adequately cleaned. The first round of ice took about 15-20 minutes - but then the ice came faster than expected, and it was quite impressive. The 3 different sizes of ice is nice -- we've decided it's worth the extra minute or two to get the largest size. You can set it to a timer - which is WONDERFUL -- so it will turn on and off automatically based on what you set. Love it!! You will not be disappointed in the quality of the ice, or the machine! Highly recommend!! **As one reviewer noted in their video review - it DOES beep for some reason when it really shouldn't be beeping. Not sure why it does that. As well, we agree that the instruction manual is not very helpful.
**** UPDATE **** It's beeping to tell us it doesn't have enough water to make ice. We have it set to make ice for 2 hours - once each day, however, it continuously tries to make ice anyway (thus the notification beeps). I'm pretty sure we aren't setting the timer correctly - thus the instruction manual being completely unhelpful. But the ice is soooo nice, that we really don't care. :)
