There are currently many portable and compact ice makers on the US market and this compact Ivation is a great contender among many with a score of 4.9 out of 5 stars at the time of this review, we’ve come across many happy customers online: Nice looks, functionality, solid build quality, ease of use, speed and high capacity per day which is like ice every 6-10 minutes and bucket after bucket to add up to 26 pounds per day (24 hour cycle) and you can comfortably use it all day and you will have enough ice for as many people as you want and you’re not limited with the size of ice as it will let you have three different sizes which also means you may put ice in any jug or glass for your cold drink and the ice will fit in without dramas. You just need to fill the reservoir with water and turn it on for ice to be ready in about six to ten minutes depending on size and it will turn itself automatically for safety when the ice bucket is full- it has a 2.2 pound storage capacity (2.8 liter water storage). The ice that you leave inside the unit will melt and go straight into the water till you switch it back on next time so you will not be wasting any water and try and use filtered water if you want that great fresh tasting ice. It has a vent on one side and fan on the other (not super quiet and not loud) and it needs some space around it for proper circulation so it doesn’t overheat. Instructions on the manual and on LCD panel are very clear and it is a simple to use unit but make sure you wash it properly with soap before using it for the first time.
