Igloo ICEB33SL 33 lb. Automatic Countertop Ice Maker
Igloo ICEB33SL is a 33-pound daily capacity, automatic, electric countertop style ice maker. It is offered in three color options of silver, black or black stainless steel. 9 large or small ice cubes in cylinder shape are created in just 7 minutes.
The 33 lb. Ice Maker is compact in size and has a very modern design to look good on your countertop and fit well with your other appliances and kitchen decor. You can move it easily within your house or out and make ice wherever and whenever you want. It has a larger 33 pound daily capacity if you keep its 2.5 quart water tank filled. And you’ll have enough ice for your drinks all day long.
The LED-backlit digital control panel is easy to operate and read. And it will tell you when the ice basket is full or when the tank is running out of water and needs to be replenished with water. You can see the ice cubes clearly and easily through the large transparent lid. It comes with an ice basket or scoop that are easy to remove, letting you transfer the ice cubes to your freezer, ice bucket or directly into your drinks.
Igloo 33 lb. Ice Maker weighs 22.3 pounds and measures 14.09 x 9.65 x 11.54 inches. It has a drain plug at the bottom for draining the unused water and cleaning. The ice making is very fast on this unit and the cubes it makes are larger than normal. It doesn’t have a built-in freezer and the ice cubes it makes will melt back into the water tank for making more ice in the next batch. If the “Ice Full” indicator is on after a couple of batches, you can simply move the ice to the front from the back.
The voltage is 120 Volts and you can plug it to any regular power outlet. All ice makers are a little noisy and this one is as noisy as the other standard machines, and not more than a dishwasher. You may want to put ten ice cubes in the water tank and fill it with cold water for getting full size, better quality ice cubes. Overall it is a great quality, sturdy, durable and functional ice making machine. It does not have the self cleaning function but with the drain plug at the bottom and the easy to reach interior, it is quite easy to clean.
The ice cubes it makes are very nice and taste good as long as you use filtered water. It is very easy to operate with just a couple of buttons to press. You will not have to keep going to the stores to get ice for your drinks or when you’re entertaining. It makes a cup of ice in half an hour and fills the two-pound ice basket in two to three hours. It works as promised and we are happy to recommend it if you’re looking for a compact, fast and functional ice maker for home, office or similar use but not commercial use. It comes with a year of standard warranty and Igloo is a well-known company that stands behind its products.
