The speed of the machine gained mostly positive reviews. Most of the customers thought they had enough ice at a certain time they did not expect, which was a compliment. They also loved the fact that there are three choices, so they can use any kind of ice cube they want, depending on the occasion. There was also a good review when it comes to draining and cleaning. One user said that it was easy to drain and clean. It was also easy to refill. Plus, according to one user, the reservoir can hold an ample amount of water for the amount of ice needed. There was one user who said that the manual was easy to read and follow.
There were several cons about this machine, however. One glaring negative feature was the durability of the machine. A lot of users said that the machine kept on getting broken. They also said that it was good at first, but after several uses, parts of the machine broke, or the machine all in all stopped working. There were even problems like the ice getting stuck.
In connection with the feature written above, the customer service also got negative reviews. There were several users who said that they called customer service when something from the machine got broken, but ended up getting non-friendly answers. Also, there have been users who said that the parts that they asked for arrived at a very later time.
For the other bad reviews, there were users who were bothered by their observation that the machine does not have a cooler effect. Instead, when you leave the ice for awhile, it immediately melts. There was also one problem regarding the taste of the ice. One user said that the ice they made tasted like plastic. Plus, they didn’t like the fact that when the bin gets full, the machine stops producing ice. Maybe if they had a bigger ice container, it would be better.
