So far I am having a great experience. Product was received in excellent condition. Followed the instructions to the letter. Ice was exactly what I was hoping for. I am in day 2 of making ice. As long as I don't have any malfunctions in equipment I will forever be a trumpet for this product. I know many people that love the nugget ice and would definitely buy this machine!

ckonfrst 5/27/2020

Love the ice that comes out of this machine - perfection. Compact size makes it easy to put on the counter and the continuous ice all day is great. The whole family loves this thing and the ice it makes. My only complaint is that this thing is LOUD. It's mostly white noise which isn't too bad, but it's louder than our main fridge, mini fridge, and wine fridge combined.

KM2004 5/27/2020

Today is our first day making ice with this machine and it has gone well. Easy to follow instructions and up making ice in under an hour. Ice is a bit harder than what you get at the drive in restaurant but still good. Dont forget to order a filter it doesn't come with one.

Debbie858 5/26/2020

Our household is a huge fan of wet ice. This unit does a good job of making it, however the process is LOUD and produces a lot of heat exhaust. Still on the fence if we are going to keep this or not. Great product design but the noise and exhaust on this unit are the biggest downsides.

And have had no issues works smoothly and is so quiet compared to the reviews I had read of it being super loud. Easy to clean and it's wonderful to have all that extra freezer space! And ice that doesn't taste like a old freezer!

SO FAR SO GOOD!

Lori Fn 5/26/2020

We've had this less than a week but so far it's a huge hit! I bought this for my husband as a gift because he's an ice snob lol and he LOVES it!! He was like a little kid he's so excited about having "good ice" on demand. And it really does make ice very quickly. Per the other reviews it is kind of loud (it sounds like the dishwasher when it's running so not terrible just some background noise), and it takes up counter space, but for someone who really loves Ice its totally worth it. We are hoping it continues to last.

Excellent but loud

Iceisnice 5/26/2020

The machine makes the best ice you can get at home. It pumps out hundreds of soft, small ice nuggets that are perfect for any drink. It starts making ice within 30 minutes of turning it on. My only complaint is the noise. The machine is not loud enough to distract from normal conversation during the day but it is distracting when watching tv or listening to music. This may not be an issue if your kitchen is not directly connected to your family room. That being said it is simple to turn the machine off when not in use.

Frozen Tundra1 5/26/2020

Works great, and it helps us to get through the COVID-19 Pandemic. We even bought 100 plastic ice bags on Amazon, that we use to store ice in the freezer and then to use in the Ice Chest later. My favorite is to have a cold brew coffee and chew the ice as I drink it.

Chick-Fil-A ice dupe

AmandaLeigh 5/26/2020

I love this ice maker. The ice reminds me of the popcorn like ice from Chick-Fil-A. After using in multiple times now I have a few suggestions. Use a tape measure to see where it will fit on your counter. While it is quiet yes you can hear it. I suggest putting it in a cabinet or separate room but if you kitchen is similar to mine and open just turn the tv up a little more.

Gsteeleky 5/25/2020

This is our second one of these to buy. The first was a Christmas gift to me from my husband, and we liked it so much that we went together with my siblings to get one for my parents for Mother's/Father's Day. We are all very happy with this ice maker. The quality of the ice is excellent and there is nothing else available like it. It is very versatile, too. You can leave it on to recycle and have fresh ice all day, or you can turn it off after it is full and the ice lasts for several hours and doesn't stick together. It was a big investment for us, but we have been so happy with both purchases (the original Opal and now this GE version).

the_rockkk 5/24/2020

We love this ice maker so far. I really like that it makes the small cubes, what some people call "chewy ice". Just so you know, you do have ice in about 6 minutes, but you only get about 6 cubes at a time so it takes a bit longer to have enough usable ice for a beverage. If you want to put this in your kitchen note it is a big loud, but of course it is an ice maker. We put ours in our laundry room. Overall the install was super easy. The side tank was equally easy to install. If it seems like it's not drawing water from the side tank make sure the connecting hose is laying flat and not arched upward (this can happen when you push the maker back against a wall, not that I'd know anything about that..). We've only had it installed a few weeks, but so far we are very happy with it.

Love the Ice - Hate the Noise

Mike in Eden 5/23/2020

The ice this machine makes is nice and crunchy - fun to chew. However, the machine is really very loud - it really is! We think it's a little louder than a normal kitchen microwave and it's constant while it's making ice - hour after hour. While not unexpected, be aware that it puts out a fair amount of heat as well.

Great ice, but it is LOUD!

jbro55 5/22/2020

I bought this for my wife for mother's day so she didn't have to continually go to Sonic for the "good ice." It makes great ice and she loves it. BUT, we have an open floor plan kitchen and living room and this thing is LOUD. When it first starts making ice it is the loudest and it gets a little quieter after the water gets flowing but is still very lout. It is very difficult to watch TV. The noise is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. The only other complaint is that about 1/4 to a 1/3 of the ice melts over night. I guess once it shuts down thinking its full the ice maker doesn't come back on until the bin is opened.
