NewAir – 28-lb Portable Ice Maker – 3 Ice Sizes – Stainless Steel
– March 16, 2021
Bought this because we don’t have an icemaker in the fridge and we use ice cube trays. Ice cube trays take up room that I can use to store other foods so we purchased this stand alone icemaker.
Ice produced fast.
Compact machine can be used for tailgating out of a van.
Does not keep ice frozen so transferring to freezer the ice tends to stick together after 30 minutes.

Got this a month or so ago and has been a great unit to help with the ice supply during summer BBQs and stuff instead of having to grab bags of ice. This machine just kept popping out fresh ice for drinks and that was awesome!

we’ve had this one a couple of weeks and so far so good. We had one that looked exactly like it but had another brand name and it lasted for over 7 years. I hope this lone does as well.

I like it so far. Purchased awhile ago and finally used it. Makes ice quickly. Nice, large water reservoir.

We like this ice maker and it meets our needs because we don’t need large quantities of ice. It takes a bit of time to make the ice so you need to plan ahead. It takes an hour to fill the little ice cube holder inside the unit. That’s enough to fill about a 32 oz glass for an example of the volume. I am okay with that, we just let it keep going and stick a ziplock of cubes in the freezer. The ice cubes are hollow as they drop off the freezing rods- I’ve never used hollow cubes before! But the medium size is plenty big and they do not melt right away. There are three sizes, just haven’t used them all yet so can’t comment. Small probably freezes much fast than medium. I expect large would take way too long for me to wait. The ice does not melt too quickly- so happy with that. It’s bigger than I thought it would be, but worth finding a place for it! I am really happy we purchased it!

Bought this unit in January 2020. Worked great for 15 months, then just stopped making ice. I’m glad I bought the 4 year Geek Squad Protection Plan.

Wonderful Ice Maker. We have had it running non stop since March 2020. Our freezer makes only a traditional amount of ice for my family. Right now there are 4 adults but we had up to 6 adults for lengthy periods of time last year living with us. I am very impressed with how fast it makes ice. It is larger than I thought but I cleared off what was going to be a temporary space in the coolest part of the kitchen. Well, we know how that went down in 2020. Every Thursday, I just bag up the ice and let all the water run through, then do my cleaning. We use bottle water to make the ice which helps to insure having any deposits are a minimum. If the sun is shining, I prop open the clean ice maker lid and out it goes to catch some germ killing rays. My husband did not originally want it but I saw it as a basic necessity like toilet paper when this whole pandemic started. Now, our control panel is out on our refrigerator and zero ice. We are waiting for the magic chips to come from China to fix it, don’t worry the fridge is still working. It will be at least a month or longer before we get it repaired meanwhile this little baby will keep us in ice. Yesterday, my husband said this little machine was the best thing we bought all year. I think so too.

I had a fridge with an icemaker and loved it. I moved to an apartment with a furnished fridge, no icemaker. So I bought this because the reviews on it were so good. I love it too. I get a little low on ice and I just turn it on and have ice very quickly. It takes up a little space, but I have plenty where I am. Fast and efficient.
