"Be patient."

Item arrived in a strapped box with a crushed corner. You just pour water into the basin, choose your ice size, and hit start. It also includes a 1 year warranty by GE when you register the product. The other deciding factor for me was the built in cleaning function. The other deciding factor for me was the built in cleaning function. You need to understand how these work. But of course I had to refill it with water several times.

EdgeStar IB120SS Final Thoughts

"Be patient."

So we are a family of 7 and it keeps up with us. Because it's so easy to setup, don't be tempted to start making ice until you read. Looking over the mixed reviews, I debated buying this. I am very pleased with this ice maker. The second unit arrived and we setup according to the instructions. Now, as far as the ice maker goes- it has worked flawlessly for the past week. I will certainly work it like a dog.

"It's how they all work."

Also, read the instructions on how to work the machine and how the machine works. It's compact and can fit on your counter, but I wouldn't say that it's small. Ultimately deciding to give it a try. It is outlined well in the user's guide. I accessed the motor and lubed the rubber gasket with some white lithium grease. Ultimately deciding to give it a try. It circulates the pump for 6 minutes.

"Of ice per day."

The ice cubes are dome shaped and you can select 2 different sizes. Also, read the instructions on how to work the machine and how the machine works. Friends and family all like to take a cup home. I actually had a commercial sized unit that had a hard waterline and plumbed drain. Because it's so easy to setup, don't be tempted to start making ice until you read. You need to understand how these work. They literally sell bags of their ice and we bought ice there for years.

EdgeStar IB450SS Final Thoughts

"Right or wrong."

My last one was a trooper and I hope this one is too. This bad boy allows you to quickly spin up some new icy cube thingies. It's compact and can fit on your counter, but I wouldn't say that it's small. The unit fits perfectly on the counter next to my refrigerator. But of course I had to refill it with water several times. Honestly, more of the manual is legal safety stuff. Maybe twice the size of a rice cooker.

"6A to make ice."

Starts making ice in less than 5 minutes! My biggest issue is that my fridge cannot keep up with the ice demands. Make ice is pretty straight forward. When the box arrived I was so excited. It makes perfect nugget ice and quickly too! They are soft enough that you can chew them. It has way of making small or large Ice.

"Love this!"

This bad boy allows you to quickly spin up some new icy cube thingies. The package contains a helpful measuring cup and an ice scoop. I've only had for 24 hours but so far it's awesome and makes ice quick! Not to mention the fridge ice maker has been repaired four times in seven years. It holds much more ice, so I don't think i can discount points for the size. The ice cubes are dome shaped and you can select 2 different sizes. The setup instructions were straightforward and easy to follow.

"Very easy to use."

This time, the unit started to make ice within 15 minutes. There is an illuminated, round, touch sensitive, button on front. It is also not plumbed and there is no option for a direct plumbed line. It holds much more ice, so I don't think i can discount points for the size. The squeal would disappear during or slightly after the defrost cycle. Been waiting two months for a new ice maker. I will certainly work it like a dog.

"After that, it's fine."

It holds much more ice, so I don't think i can discount points for the size. It is outlined well in the user's guide. It makes soft, chewable, small, nuggets. There are 10 batches of ice per cycle, with each batch taking between 9-10 minutes. That is, if you aren't using it the minute it gets made. I could already feel my blood boiling. I will try and post an update in a few months.

That is, if you aren't using it the minute it gets made. It also has a function of self cleaning it. Read all of the instructions before you start. Instead, it makes the ice, which falls into a clear, plastic, ice drawer. This is why I keep shopping at Amazon- they make everything right!

"It cost a lot more."

I actually had a commercial sized unit that had a hard waterline and plumbed drain. Maybe twice the size of a rice cooker. Starts making ice in less than 5 minutes! Item arrived in a strapped box with a crushed corner. I buy sonic and Zaxby's ice by the bag. It is soft enough to chew and hard enough not to water down pop or vodka. We initially ordered the GE Profile Opal because we wanted great Ice for our drinks.

"It has worked ever since."

So we are a family of 7 and it keeps up with us. You need to run the cleaning cycle before first use but it's easy to do. But, after a while, it too became an expensive habit. I like the fact that it cleans itself. It circulates the pump for 6 minutes. The machine does make some noise but not too terrible. I spent a couple weeks looking at ice makers.

"I would recommend."

There is an illuminated, round, touch sensitive, button on front. Our biggest complaint with our last ice maker is that it constantly beeped. I've only found one very small issue with the machine overall. I have had a magic chef ice maker for the last 5 or 6 years. Also, the ice maker isn't obnoxiously loud. It is soft enough to chew and hard enough not to water down pop or vodka. Clean off any grease that may have gotten on the motor or surrounding areas.
