35# ice maker
We ordered this product because our new refrigerator did not produce enough ice cubes for our family. We have been delighted with this product. It produces plenty of ice cubes for our family of four. I would recommend it highly for family use.

This ice maker works very good!
The ice maker produces ice as stated in the ad. It replaces a Danby unit that was five years old. The unit seems to be constructed well except for the plastic ice bin. It's a bit flimsy compared to the Dandy's metal one. Overall it's a good unit that makes plenty of ice for our family of four!

Can't live without it!
Strengths: Works perfectly!
Fill it full of water, start it 1 hour before you start drinking.And it will supply six people with frozen, or cubed drinks. Using the medium size cubes, it produces 12 cubes every 10 min, and requires water every four hours, and that is with continuous use! Works great with Rival ice shaver for frozen drinks!! We have had it for eight months and has been 100% reliable, with everday use!

Strengths: Delivers ice quickly.
Weakness: The tray the ice is made in is made of plastic.
We love our icemaker. I don't know how we lived without it. We live in our 5th wheel. It doesn't take up much room.
Only problem we have had is the plastic tray that hold the water for the ice to be made is made out of plastic. One side cracked. Maybe I tried to clean it too hard and was my fault? Other than that..it has been a wonderful machine.

Wouldn't buy again
I was given this ice maker, which came from Home Depot, as a Christmas gift in 2011. On December 27, 2012 it quit working. When I contacted manufacturer about the problem "Sabrina" said it was out of warranty (which is one year) and they wouldn't be able to help. It is useless now. Buy a different brand. Poor customer service.

Looked good BUT needed further instructions.
Product did NOT work. I returned it for a refund. We followed the only instructions that came with it but needed further help. Did nothing but cool the water and kept recycleing same. Machine got hot but did not freeze the water.

Worked Like a Champ for 3 Years!
We used the ice maker for 3 yrs prior to purchasing a new refrigerator with a built in ice maker. The machine does a great job and can produce ice very quickly. Only downside is that the tray where the ice cubes are made is hard to get to so that you can clean it. Other than that, it has been a good investment.

Product was exactly as specified
Excellent product which performed well and shipping was also good.

Only Lasted 2 years
Ice maker quit freezing almost 2yrs after buying. It was great while it worked but expected it to last longer.

It performs as described
We purchased this for our handicapped son and he loves it. We noticed some critical reviews that said their ice maker quit on the 90th day of warranty, so we purchased an extended protection plan -- well worth the money and piece of mind.

I must have got a good one!
Bought this unit in 2005 for use at the office I worked at. I left for a new opportunity in 2006, and ended up returning to my previous employer this year (2012). The ice maker is still in the exact spot I placed it and is still working, nearly 7 years on? Can't say much more than that.

I have had two of these. The first went out the first year, thought maybe it was just a lemon, so replaced, the second did the exact same thing. The motor goes bad. I wouldn't buy this type again. I am going to replace with a different type. It did work good when it worked though. Made enough ice and was satisfactory until the motor just gives way. They just stop pumping their water one day with no warning, and it's done.

By dog67 on Home Depot - Jul 24, 2012
looks nice good features BUT
IT DID LAST 13 MO. AND STOPPED WORKING I WOULD NOT RECOMEND ONE AND I WOULD NOT BUY ANOYHER...
By RUSS on Home Depot - Jun 21, 2012
Not worth buying
The first unit made so much noise, it was a challenge to be in the same room. The distributor decided it was a compressor problem and sent me another unit. After 2 months, this one wouldn't work at all. The distributor said I could fix it myself or pay the shipping to return for warranty work. When under warranty, I don't feel I should be paying the shipping to return it. Not worth buying.

Pretty Good Ice Maker
The ice maker was bigger than I expected and takes up a lot of counter space. It makes ice quite quickly and lots of it- which I love! However, there is no refrigeration in the unit so the ice is wet and melts quickly if not removed. When I pour it in my refrigerator's freezer bin it sticks together because it is wet. Also, when you shut the unit off, the water needs to be drained and this is difficult to do. Other than that, it works well. I've had the unit about 1 month.

Didn't even last a year
It worked great while it lasted! Just stopped working.

SPT portable icemaker
Icemaker looks and works great. Great buy for the price. Makes plenty of ice in a short period of time.

Don't buy this Ice maker
I wish I would have seen the Review posted on Dec 20th before I purchased this Ice Maker. I had the Ice Maker for 98 days and it stopped working. The excange policy is good for 90 days. The company SPT offers a 1 year warenty but it will cost you $40 to ship it back to SPT for them to fix it. I also had a hard time getting any of their costumer service people to call me back. I would not have purchased this Ice Macker if I had it to do over again.

ice is made quick, i love that
I love how its made quickly but i hate having to change out the water every so often, and i wish the ice wouldn't melt. I'm a busy man who works a lot and its something I hate doing,, but overall I still love it and it was worth every penny.
By MeDiNa on Home Depot - Apr 10, 2012
I purchased this for a small office, and it's worked out great. A-1 support from the manufacturer - the first one to arrive was terribly noisy but they were easy to reach & immediately sent out a replacement along with a return shipping label. The instructions are a little shaky in places (not unusual for translations) but a fast & quickly answered phone call took care of that as well.

Great addition to our kitchen
Our old freezer went up and we got a new one. Instead of getting a built-in ice maker, we bought this portable one. Only complaint is that when it makes the ice, since the storage area isn't actually cooled (it's insulated like a cooler), the ice gets moist and sticks together when we put it in the freezer. Our primary use is just to make ice for our freezer, although we will use it for parties and so forth. Yes, it's a little loud but it's quieter than the dishwasher, FWIW. Amazing how fast the ice is made. Very impressive. We are very happy with the purchase and have had it for about a month.
By DaveO on Home Depot - Apr 3, 2012
Great service, came fast, very easy and makes ice quickly. Way better than replying on refrig ice machine that never seemed to work right!
By ross on Home Depot - Mar 27, 2012
The computer icemaker is great.
I love my ice maker. It makes three different size cubes. I have even had a special cover made for it when we are not using it
By CYNDY on Home Depot - Feb 1, 2012
This ice maker exceeds my expectations
This ice maker is wonderful. It has an expensive look.The amount,the quality and the size of the ice is perfect.
By Cindy on Home Depot - Jan 31, 2012
This product did not last 4 months, and the 'one year' warranty covers NOTHING- do not waste your money. Buy anything else.
By Karin on Home Depot - Dec 20, 2011
WORKS AS ADVERTISED!
We needed a source for ice since our RV refrigerator is so slow in making ice. A friend had a similar ice maker which worked so well it resulted in us purchasing this product. It has performed as advertised...we got ice within the first 10 minutes and it has continued to performed beyond what we expected. No problems running out of ice now.
By Charlie on Home Depot - Dec 20, 2011
my daughter has one and I liked the way it worked.
I know how good they work and how convenient so I purchased one as a Christmas present so it has not been out of the box. I have seen my daughters and having the ability to make three sizes of ice is great.

GREAT ICE MAKER
I have had it about 5 weeks. Been using it everyday. Works GREAT.
By rustler on Home Depot - Nov 15, 2011
Very Good Overall
The machine was placed in our lunchroom. It replaced all the ice trays in the freezer. It seems to work like a dream. There are no problems that I have been made aware of. Everyone has commented on how well the machine works and that it is more germ free from the ice trays. I would recommend this machine for both home and office use.
