IglooMWC750 Water Cooler/Dispenser with Ice Maker
Igloo MWC750 is a 2016 model modern, free-standing, durable and all-in-one, compressor type water cooling and dispensing unit with a built-in ice maker, so you’ve got a unique concept that brings the water cooler and ice maker in one and let’s find out if the product lives up to its promise. Igloo is known for great quality coolers, refrigerators, and ice makers and this is the first Igloo brand water cooler we’ve reviewed so far.
Firstly it has an ice making capacity of 26 pounds in 24 hours with a cycle of 7 to 12 minutes for ice making. It can reach the highest temperature of 194 degrees Fahrenheit with a 5 liter per hour heating capacity and the cold water temperatures between 39 and 45 degrees, with a cold water cooling capacity of 4 liters per hour. You will find three switches on this unit, for heating, cooling, and ice making.
It has a pretty appearance and is suitable for use in home kitchens, office kitchens, waiting rooms, warehouses among other places and you can use it for events and parties for when you need ice, as well as hot and cold water instantly. You will see three buttons at the front: Blue on the right for cold water, white in the middle for room temperature and red on the left for hot water. It is built as a solid heavy duty product with good components, and you have the option to get it in either black or white or in rugged stainless steel, which is about 40-45 dollars extra at the time of this review.
If you don’t have a lot of space in your house or kitchen this will nicely fit anywhere as the Igloo Water Cooler measures just 14 x 12.3 x 40.1 inches with the weight of 47.3 pounds. And it will give you the convenience of instant hot and cold water as well as ice so you don’t have to go down to shops each time you run out of ice, this is especially good for those that spend a lot of money on ice and will save them money, time and effort. It will generate a standard round shaped one-inch long ice cubes with a hole in the center as you can see in the photo.
It will keep the ice frozen for a while and will melt a little- not long so you’re better off transferring it to your freezer but the water in the reservoir underneath will not melt. You can certainly plumb the drain in ice section if you own a quarter inch drain pipe. You need to make sure that you have water at all times if the unit is on or you’ll see a flashing light indicating overheating or simply turn it off if not in use. It doesn’t run super quietly but not noisy either and does the job well, with hot water very hot, cold water very cold and good ice making capability. This is a good product overall, with minor flaws.
