The bottom line is most of the customers who have tried this product liked it. They said that it has been very helpful to them, especially to those users who needed ice every day and at every hour. They said that they were amazed at how fast the machine created ice. There have also been many users who said that they have been using it for months and the product still works fine.
There are cons however, as observed by some users. One user said that the machine smelled of plastic, and so did the ice cubes that it created. Although one user also said that with water and vinegar, plus time, the smell of plastic would disappear. There were also comments regarding the noise. A lot of users said that the machine makes noise when its operating, which can be distracting for some.
There have also been reports of bad manufacturing, where there machines had parts that just stopped working. Fortunately, most of them gave good reviews when it came to customer service. Most of the parts were replaced soon enough.
As for the ice cubes themselves, there were others who said that the ice cubes were clear and tasted just like water. However, there were also others who said that the ice kind of looked blurry and tasted weird. There have also been complaints about the ice melting fast.
A few people complained about problems with the drainage, so it’s better to put it near the sink so that draining the water can be easy and the machine won’t break. With regard to durability, there have been positive and negative reviews. The negative reviews were that after many uses, the machine can break. Plus, there were “add water” problems wherein the machine kept on asking the user to add water even if they think they’ve added enough already.
