Loved the ice.

Jeepgirl2 6/26/2020

The ice was perfect I loved it! The bad review is after having it for three weeks the unit started making a horrible and loud noise. It struggled to make a bin of ice even if it ran all night. Opal is working on a warranty swap, but for the price I expect better quality and for it to last more than a few weeks.

This ice maker is the best way to get perfect nugget ice for any cocktail calling for crushed ice. As summer settles in and tropical tiki drinks beckon, this appliance is the perfect companion to any home bar and a must-have for summer parties and get-together.

That Good Ice

AllergicRock 6/24/2020

This ice machine was easy to set up, and gave us that good ice within minutes. It's side tank allows for extra production without having to refill the main compartment up. We've enjoyed it every day since we received it.

Great ice.

Pfef1379 6/24/2020

I've had it for a month. Works well so far. Takes about 4 hours to fill up. Makes great ice. We will see how it does in the future. One thing I did is I let my machine sit in its spot for a full 24hrs so all the freon could settle. Which is very important. The app needs work. The schedule doesn't work well at all.

I have waited and waited to make this major purchase. I hesitated to buy is due to some of the reviews but I took the plunge and ordered and I'm so delighted I did! I absolutely love my ice machine. It's quick, silent, and takes up little counter space. But a problem has surfaced now....my peeps at my local Sonic are missing me!!! But it, you won't regret it!

MJSD 6/23/2020

This is the second generation of this particular ice maker. I enjoyed the first unit for the 4 years it lasted. This new unit exceeds my expectations. It works great and provides fresh nugget ice for the whole family. The new side water tank is a very nice option along with the bluetooth connectivity. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone.

Flawless so far

NVCraig 6/23/2020

It took me at least a year to make this purchase. Every time I'd come back to the site to order, I'd read some of the negative reviews...especially those about noise. Well I obviously took the chance and so far I'm thrilled I did. Unit has been flawless with one user related mistake that caused the unit to squeak like crazy. Not saying this is what others experienced and complained about, but seemed awfully close. Turns out that you can easily pinch the feed/drain hoses on the back of the unit by pushing the unit to close to the back wall. The hose to the external tank was getting pinched causing the unit to run dry and make that horrible noise. Pulled the unit out a few inches and problem solved. Love the ice.

Jones 6/23/2020

Because of the price, I was extremely hesitant to buy this at first. However, my wife loves Sonic style ice and so was very excited at the thought of being able to get that from a machine at home. So far the machine and ice have more than lived up to our expectations. We have both shared that we purchased this ice machine with friends and co-workers.

GE Profile Opal Nugget ice maker

HowardA 6/22/2020

First follow the instructions that come with the ice maker. The setup of the ice maker was not complicated; it took maybe less than 1/2 hour( you have to clean the unit before making the first batch of ice). The ice maker is heavy, so either find a location that is close to your sink, or use a pail for draining the water when cleaning the unit. I have been using distilled water to make the nugget ice. So far,so good, with no complaints.

Ice nuggets are too solid

RBLNV 6/21/2020

I received this appliance as a Father's Day gift and am quite excited as I really enjoy this type of ice both in beverages and also just for chewing on. We are disappointed in finding that the nuggets produced by this machine are quite solid. We've been told other appliances have the ability to change the density of the ice, but haven't seen that it is possible on the Opal.

It makes ice!

Frozone 6/21/2020

It's a lot of money to make ice but I'm very impressed with the ice it makes. I'm pretty impressed with how long it keeps the ice as well. I never write reviews, ever, but as long as this keeps working well, we'll be extremely happy. Only downsides so far is that it takes a little while to make the ice (plan at least an hour or two ahead) and it makes some noise, but that's to be expected. Also, it's very heavy, so when it comes to cleaning this if you have to move it be prepared to lug something the equivalent of R2-D2. Otherwise, two thumbs up.

CO Gal 6/19/2020

We bought an Opal and loved it. It broke down within the first year. We sent it in they sent us another unit. Less than two years in with this unit it breaks down. I was told all they could do was send a link to buy another Opal. Why would I do that if their units cannot last even two years. The guy even told me that the unit should last longer than two years but there was nothing they could do except send a link to purchase a new one. Buy from companies willing to stand behind their product.

I'm only about three weeks in with the ice maker, but the family loves it. It's exactly what we wanted. While it is a little loud, it's nothing unbearable. I was a little hesitant based on the price tag, but now I can't see how we did without for so long. Didn't realize it had a Bluetooth enabled app. Nice feature although it's not necessary for or needs.

Some family members had one of these at their house, so I was able to try it before I bought it. At first I didn't think it would be worth the money, but my wife is pregnant and loves to chew ice, so this has been a huge help. I use it all the time as well, I've had it for about a month, and it has been great the whole time.
