Please note that the water line does not come with a built-in filter. The ice that goes into the ice bin will stay frozen for up to 18 hours, which will also depend on the ambient temperature.

It is a great quality 3-in-1 Ice Maker & Crusher that produces ice very quickly and is built to last with the good quality components. The crushed nugget ice it makes is a bit like sonic ice and we like the ice cold water dispensing function very much. But it is not a particularly small unit and will take up some space on your countertop.
