The machine got good reviews on its speed. Most people agreed with the description that the machine does make a lot of ice in a few minutes. Users may find it useful to bring to parties or bars, for immediate consumption of ice. One user said that you can use this anywhere as long as you have an electrical connection of 110v ac. The good thing about this, according to one user is that it uses the temperature of the ice to keep it cold, so there isn’t much electricity to use.
The indicator light was also helpful to some, although there were others who complained about it malfunctioning.
Having three choices attracted this product to a lot of users, and it didn’t disappoint them in this regard. This allowed users to make ice according to their taste or event.
The machine, however, is experiencing bad reviews when it comes to its durability. A lot of users found that the machine does not work for a very long time. On an average, users who have used the machine for around three months found that the machine isn’t working anymore, or that some parts are broke. Plus, when they call the customer service, a lot of these users complained about bad service. It also took a long while before the parts were given or replaced.
The ice cubes also melt fast, according to most users. They said that this can be an inconvenience since you have to keep on transferring the ice to the refrigerator so that it won’t melt. There were also some users who were bothered by the machine’s noise. Also, there was a user who said that the medium and big ice cubes were too thin for him.
As for ease of use, most people found it easy to use, although there were also some who found it confusing, especially when there were broken parts. The weight isn’t also efficient as observed by some users. They said that it’s too heavy to bring around with you.
