It freezes quickly, runs quietly at a noise level of less than 50 decibels and uses up as little energy as possible. You can run it all day long and you’ll not get disturbed by its noise.

Red MILcea HK23001 Ice Machine weighs 16.96 pounds and measures 14.6 x 13.2 x 10.2 inches, looks nice and can have a permanent spot on your kitchen counter if you have enough space. You get into the auto self-cleaning function by pressing and holding the Clean button for about 3 seconds when the ice maker is in stand by mode. You can adjust the cleaning time (normally 10 mins) through the control panel as well. There is a drain plug at the bottom to empty the unused water easily. You are recommended to replace the water every 24 hours to keep it clean.
Add Water indicator lights up when the reservoir is running out of water and you need to add some more water and the Ice Full indicator is when the ice basket is full and needs to be emptied before the machine continues to make more cycles. You can view the ice making process clearly through the transparent window without needing to lift the lid. And by not opening it you will keep the interior ambient temperature. The ice cubes will be fresh and tasty consistently but it is a good idea to run it for a couple of cycles before using the ice cubes. Just like the water you drink it is a good idea to use pure filtered water in this unit, rather than tap water.
