This little wonder makes ice as fast as advertised. It couldn't be easier to use. If you want ice and you want it fast, then this is the unit for you. If I had one small criticism it's that it isn't easy to completely clean and we are talking about ingesting ice and want and need it to be clean.

We purchased the ice maker after receiving good reviews from a friend. We used the ice maker on a 9 day trip, and we never had to buy ice. The campground was over 90 degrees every day, but we kept the machine in the shade. Every 11 minutes a new batch of 12 large cubes was produced, and it took care of our drinks and maintaining a large cooler. It can be noisy when dropping ice, so you probably wouldn't want to run it overnight if you are keeping it inside.

Very pleased with this ice maker and Camping World. I had this ice maker at my doorsteps in least than ten days from date of order. It works great and easy to use. We purchased the ice maker to use when we are camping. We are camp hosts for 3 to 4 months at a time. After getting it we have decided to use this to make ice at our home too. We make ice for about 6-7 hours ever couple of weeks at home. Makes about 5-6 gallon bags of ice. Will be using it this summer when we are hosting. I wish we had purchased it sooner. When we are done we drain it and wipe it out and its ready to go next time.

I can't say a thing wrong about this machine!

May 09, 2014
I've owned mine for over 5 years now & love it more every time I use it! I use it at home since our city water sends out their out-off-federal tolerance letters about quarterly over the years. We use it for a day every couple of weeks, we freeze enough ice for 2 people. Cleanup is a breeze, we wipe it dry, drain the water line (just suck the water out of the drain plug) and allow it to air dry before closing it for next time. We get to use our bottled water and all the nutrients included in it. To fill, simply fill the tank, open the drain for one second (to drain the air & prime the pump) & you're making full-sized cubes with the first batch! Instructions say to throw away the first batch but if you drain it well enough you can begin using with the first batch! (I like to throw the first two batches back in the tank to pre-chill the resevoir even faster!) So turn the water off on your home icemaker & begin filling your ice bin with your good, spring water! We fill our icemaker bin & up to 5gallon zip-lock freezer bags & make ice only twice/month. And love every cube! My wife quilted a very nice cover which further eliminates dust. Its a countertop mainstay at our home!

I was very impressed how fast this ice maker makes ice, the first time making ice only took 11 minutes, I am looking forward to using this machine for our trips for a long time, I know in the long run it will pay for itself. The only drawback that I can see is I do wish it had a way to keep the ice cold in the collection basket.

I love this ice maker. We camp a lot and it's nice not to have to run out and buy ice all the time. I have even supplied my other family members with ice for their campers. They have since purchased an ice machine too. It's nice to have in the house when having a family get together too. I highly recommend this product.

April 02, 2014
Bought this ice maker in hopes it would keep up with our demand for ice, we use a lot of ice when camping in our motor home. First time using it was a real pleasure, it works fantastic, making more ice than we can use. I’m very pleased and hope it will continue to work as well. It’s also very fast in making ice which was a surprise but very pleased. We use to buy bags of ice all along our traveling but found that most ice we bought was not good and tasted like dirt. We use filtered water in the ice maker and find the taste is fine. I’m very pleased and would recommend it to anyone that uses a lot of ice while camping.

January 25, 2014
We have enjoyed this machine everyday since we received it. I purchased it for my wife, to use when she goes camping. We were buying quite a lot of ice on our outings. I don't think we will need to buy any more. We have not run out since we turned it on.. We found a couple of small dents in the cabinet, when we unpacked it, but they have no effect on its operation. We turned it on at home, just to check out its operation, before we took it camping, haven't turned it off since. I think I am really going to miss it, on those rare times that my wife goes camping without me. As for complaints from others, about noise I think it is very quiet.

You better have lots of muscle to lift this one

November 30, 2013
I won't comment on the ice making capabilities of this machine as we haven't been on the road with it and the vast majority of the reviews say it really produces ice. My concern with the machine is the weight, as it is almost 40 lbs. The recessed handles are offset from each other and at different heights, making it very awkward for seniors to lift it. The company should make/offer a carrier of some sort to go with the product. A simple set of straps that fit down and under all four sides and connect to a common handle would do the trick. As it is, the recessed handles seem to be set so you bend over, put your fingers in the recessed handles, and quickly bring the ice maker up to chest/waist level and then walk with it. That doesn't work for us 74 year olds. However, a set of straps and a handle similar to a luggage handle, would work as it is easier to lean over, grab the handle, lift a short distance and walk. Our solution was to use a large Home Depot orange stretchable shopping bag. We struggle a little to put it in the nylon collapsible bag and then we pick it up like a piece of luggage to carry it. We are definitely going to be very careful where we store it in the RV as we wouldn't want this machine to come flying around in case of an accident.

This thing is the bomb for campers/outdoors or any occasion. We have a fifth wheel camper, we installed it inside the cabinet where the washer/dryer could be. Just add water, within minutes you have ice. It dumps about every 10 minutes. When the try is full, just dump into ice chest and no more buying ice or having to unhook the Camper to go get ice. We LOVE IT.

Great little icemaker, and fast

November 20, 2013
I had no idea how nice it was going to have ice available so conveniently; I wish I had bought one of these a lot earlier. When I got it, I cleaned it per the directions and ran it for about five days, filling the tub with ice and dumping it frequently to get rid of the original plasticy taste. After that, it's been great. We use the large cube size and it's perfect for just about anything. Just be aware that this is an Ice MAKER, not a freezer. Although the cube bin is pretty well insulated, the ice will eventually melt (and recycle) if you don't use it. We ran ours continuously for five months this year with absolutely no issues, so I feel good about recommending it.

We used this ice maker in our RV for the summer of 2013. We tour a lot with our race team and often dry camp at the track. This machine runs great on a generator. It provides more ice than we need. I end up giving ice to neighbours at the track that don't want to run into town to pick ice up. It is large and heavy. I only wish the smaller unit was available when I purchased this one.

Lots of ICE

November 20, 2013
We entertain fairly frequently on our lanai and always seemed to run out of ice. The Dometic Portable unit does an excellent job of keeping up with requirements. If you will need lots of ice, you might need to start it early and store up a little extra in the freezer. Even in 90 degree weather, it was making ice within minutes. We move it from our lanai to our motor home whenever we travel. Excellent unit.

I purchased the ice maker for my husband for his birthday and our motorhome because you always need ice and our Monaco Executive's ice maker quit working the first year we owned it back in 1994. This is the best ice maker we could not be happier. It is so quick and easy and so portable that we use it for all occasions. Picnics in the back yard, house parties and with the holidays coming up we are never without ice again. Thanks for making our life so much easier and my husband loves it

October 26, 2013
This ice maker is wonderful! It produces the first batch of ice in 15 minutes. And continues producing all day! I love that we didn't have to run a water line to it, so it's completely portable. I just pour a gallon of water in it when the water light comes on. So simple. It is not a freezer, so the ice will melt, but it's insulated, and we usually use the ice before it has a chance to melt. The ice it makes is pretty wet, so if you want to put a batch in your freezer for later use, you will have a big chunk of ice. That's fine for filling a cooler, but doesn't work well for cups. Fits perfectly on Camping World's Adjustable Height Aluminum Table, Catalog Item # 69103. All in all, we are delighted with this ice maker!

September 23, 2013
My wife and I debated on getting an ice machine for our camper. I read the previous reviews on line and thought we would give it a try. The product works fast, great quality ice cubes and simple use. The product is bulky and somewhat heavy but well worth it. We used drinking water in a one gallon jugs because of our preference. Sometime campground water does not smell or taste good. I made ice faster than I anticipated. The machine is not a freezer. Once the machine cuts off at full level, the ice needs to come out to not stick together. We ran the machine a steady 7 days and it did great. We highly recommend this product.

The larger unit is not light weight. More like lugable than portable. But as for producing ice, it does a fast job of pumping out the ice. And that is what it is built to do. You won't want to leave it on in your RV through the night. Just a tad noisy. Might keep you awake as it dumps ice every few minutes.

We have run this ice maker for a month 24 hours a day and it has been perfect. Makes three different sizes of ice cubes for different uses with precision. Fills the basket/about a quart every hour. Need to take ice out as it will melt slowly. Also the machine will turn off if basket gets full.

Bought ice maker in July 2013 runs great I never cut it off. When it is full it cuts off, when it is out of water it cuts off, just use some ice or add water. I do not bag the ice I leave it in the ice maker and always have ice. ice that melts is recycled, I add water every other day. As I stated in an earlier comment, Best money I have spent at Camping World .

Camping World The Best

July 25, 2013
I purchased the Ice Maker when it arrived the box was damaged but I opened it found it covered in oil. I tried it out anyway no ice at all. I called Camping World the service person was very disappointed in this news. He said he would send another right away and the damaged one would be shipped back. Now this is the surprise I have had to return items before to other companies and what I got was a shipping label and told to UPS it back to them my problem. 3 days later UPS shows up to pick damaged unit up 4 th day new unit arrives and works fine. Now that is true customer service.

Size is perfect for an RV. It's quiet except when the ice falls, works fast and doesn't draw a large load. The only complaint I have, if you want to call it that, is that you have to remove the ice tray to add water to the unit (or pour it over the ice that is in the tray!). I would have preferred an fill tube molded into the tray to allow you to add water with the tray in place.

July 19, 2013
Best thing I could have purchased. Ice maker in m/h quite. And was very expensive to have it replaced by dealer and don't know how long the fridge is going to last as my m/h is 12 years old . Ordered a portable ice maker from camping world, free delivery was great and the sale price was awsome. Received it in good time and have used it ever since makinig great ice cubes for us when we are out on the road but also use it when we have friends and relatives over at our home. It makes such great ice that we have quite using the ice trays in the house and just use our portable between the m/h and our home. We also have taken it over to my brothers home when he had a family party and it was a hit. I think he is thinking of getting one for his m/ h but is slow at deciding as it is a small m/h and he is worried about space. We think it is great and we keep it plugged into our m/ h in a compartment just out side the door and use zip lock bags to store the ice in our main freezer or our m/ h freezer. Nice thing about the bags is you just give them a hit and the ice separates every time some. Should have bought one years ago. To us its the best. Robert & Estelle Hart

This unit has done all that we had hoped. Cycles quickly. Only downside is the ice is a little on soft side so when transferred to a cooler, it tends to stick together. Love it for beverages and a steady supply of ice. Great addition to camping trips and have already saved most of the cost in not buying bagged ice at the campgrounds!

Buy it......it's the Energizer Ice Bunny


0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
June 12, 2013
Unit arrived on time. Although the top left side seam of the stainless steel cabinet arrived a little dented, (cosmetic damage), I cleaned the unit, filled with water, selected medium size cubes and the first 12 cubes of ice dumped in 9 minutes. The unit ran for 4 and 1/2 hours before running out of water. The last half hour the unit made shorter cubes because of low water, I assume. Hubby wasn't convinced we needed this unit until he experienced the efficiency of the Energizer Ice Bunny today. He was pleasantly surprised. We used a lot of ice to refresh drinks in 100 degree heat. I dumped the extra ice in a plastic tub in the freezer. The ice did not stick together because I dumped it often. The longer the ice sits in the unit basket the more it melts together. But you could store it in a ziplock baggie and then after freezing, hit it on the counter to break up ice cubes if you didn't want to dump it often. When we camp/RV the ice will be dumped into the ice chest. This unit will pay for itself in 1 to 1 1/2 seasons for us. Not to mention the inconvenience of traveling to buy ice. Thanks Camping World and Dometic for what seems to be a quality product that actually performs the way it is advertised. I would highly recommend this unit if you have electricity and a continuous need for ice. May you bask in God's abundant blessings each day!

I bought one for a 10 day trip to Lake Havasu dead center summer. My usual campground charges $5.00 for a pound of cubes. We ran it to death...litterally. I ran it over because I forgot it was under my RV making ice.. Camping World laughed, Dometic said replace it! My newest unit I carry along on my sailboat. I now keep it far enough out that I can see it.

We had some unfortunate experiences with two ice makers and also some people misinformed us regarding returning the ice maker. A Dometic customer representative contacted us via email and was very accommodating in that they sent us another ice maker. The jury is still out on the ice maker because we still need to use it but the customer service is top notch and Dometic should pride themselves in this. They even threw in some extra things for our frustrations. Nice job Dometic!

Purchased ice maker mid summer '11 following July trip to State Park on Cape San Blas FL. Camped with bro-n-law and together bought $30 ice. Next trip that summer IM made enough ice for both MH's. Worked exactly as advertised. We let the basket fill, empty into gallon freezer bag and store in MH freezer. Rap on counter will break ice for use. Why do wealthy people puchase coaches(a BUS by definition) when Motor Homes are beautiful. Great product!

We used this ice maker all summer. It performed right out of the box just like it was advertised it would. Good enough that I bought a second one to use in our house on occassions and in our truck camper when we traveled. (Since we had many days over 100 this summer we put it inside the camper to keep it producting ice quickly. But it made ice outside quickly till it got above 90 degrees.) Great item.

December 04, 2012
We've had ours for several months now and it works great. We are able to have ice for drinks and also for filling our ice chest. We found that if you keep a gallon jug of water in the refirgerator or ice chest to keep it cold, the ice makes much faster. We are able to make plenty of ice, sometimes more than we need. After finding a spot to put it in our camper, it's become one of the appliances we rely on the most. Great idea Dometic...

Works like a charm, first used at Lake Havasu, AZ in September, in 110 degree heat. We were there 3 weeks and never had to buy a single bag of ice, which saved us a minimum of $80.00. The trick is to keep unit in the RV and not outside. Our friends kept their unit outside in the bay and had no where near the ice we did. Takes about 3 hours to get going at maximum performance. There are complants of it being loud but if on carpet and A/C fans running you won't hear it. Highly recommend it. Brought it home over Thanksgiving as we had a housefull and it kept up with ice needs. Great unit. Does what it is suppose to.

I bought it eventually for my RV, but since I am a truck driver I decided to try it in the truck.Other reviewers have said it is not a cooler, but if the ice melts, it will make cubes from them again. I have only used it for a couple of weeks, but so far I am very pleased with it.

works better than anticipated, first half hour slow, then drops ice about every 10 minutes, large is sufficient for ice chests, if you store ice for later use have bags ready so you can put in freezer immediately, we buy a lot of ice for camping and every drop on the maker is the sound of $$$ saved, probably would be ok for refreshing cold drinks - but not why we purchased it, absolutely recommend

We are full time RVers for the last 6 years. We are on our 3rd machine. They last for about 2 years of continuous use then break. The last one we purchased broke within 3 months but my husband was able to fix it (for now). Good ice production when working. A little loud. And gets kinda moldy about every 3 months you have to clean with bleach.

Home fridge just couldn't keep up, so bought this unit as supplement. Set up was a breeze, yes little heavy as stated by other raters. Now at 6-weeks we love it and hate it. Provides ice needed, but freezes on the right side of water tray, so have to unplug and let it thaw then proceed...and the noise..Oh! my goodness. When filling the water tray, very loud and noisesome. Not sure if unit will be returned for possible replacement yet. Only if we can tolerate the freeze and noise. If not for these 2 issues, 5 stars.

Portable but not a freezer

September 11, 2012
Unit was shipped to us in its original box which was found. After unpacking it, I found that several of the screws holding the back on were basically stripped and loose. I tightened those as good as they could be. Also I didn't realize that it wasn't a freezer so you couldn't store the cubes in it because they will eventually melt. They don't have to be removed immediately though.First time we ran it, it took nearly two hours for the first cubes that were kind of soft. However, after that it began making cubes within the first 30 minutes of turning it on. Several people have said that it is quite. Ours is not. Placed in a wash room of our home, you can hear it in the living room. It makes a pretty loud whooshing sound. But it does make ice quicker than my home refrigerator, a Samsung. So when company comes over or we are working outside and will be drinking lots of ice water, it comes in real handy. We haven't tried it in the motorhome yet so can't comment there. tk

easy to set up makes ice as advertised in about 10 to 13 minutes the only draw back I have is the ice sticking together and they plainly tell you to remove the ice after it makes because it is not a freezer. if you leave it the ice will melt together.

When the closest available outlet for ice cubes is 25+ miles away, what do you do? Well, we just plug in our nifty little ice cube maker and relax! It draws little current when plugged into shore power as well as letting the generator idle along in eco-mode. We recommend this beauty without reservation.

Wouldn't Go Camping Without It

Worked as advertised right out of the box. Have used the Dometic Portable Ice Maker on three camping trips so far and it has kept the cooler and other ice needs topped off eliminating the need to buy ice at the campground. At this rate it will pay for itself by the end of next year's camping season. At home it has supplied ice for large family dinners and for gatherings at the pool. Except for adding water and emptying the ice, it takes care of itself. No worries if left unattended for the day as it will shut itself off if it runs out of water or if the ice bin fills to capacity. Love it.

Its Great ! After finding space to put it , We enjoyed the ice it made. I noticed after using the machine for an hour ice was made faster. Location has a lot to do with the performace of the ice maker. In other words you would not put it in the sun but some where shadey or in the coach. Ours was in the coach. A great addition to our RV.

This ice maker worked as described. It makes very little noise, only when dumping a batch of ice. Bought ice to start a week long trip and the ice maker did the rest. You will go through two gallons of water a day running all day long with the largest ice setting being used. The rubber feet kept the ice maker steady in place on the RV counter during travel. A quality built piece of equipment.

This is simply the best... it makes and holds ice even on the hottest of days 116 degrees! Always have fresh ice for drinks with enough for you cooler also. WARNING: The ice maker PUTS OUT A LOT OF HEAT. Its cooling fans throw off lots of heat... so much so we ducted ours out the window behind it to assure the AC worked without fighting off the heat wave from the icemaker. Note the heat vents from both side corners and vents in the back... blows lots of hot air you can feel! Venting out the window (with a few simple seals around the window and the ice maker) cures the problem. But Ice Maker is a must have; You will love it!

It does indeed make ice rather quickly. I like being able to choose the size of the cubes it makes as well. Runs very quietly. Just bear in mind that this isn't an ice chest. Once it makes the ice, it begins to melt as it sits in the holding bin. The good thing is the ice water recycles back in to the process.

We purchased the Ice Maker due to having to travel 5-12 miles for ice while camping. We just returned from a two week camping trip where we only had to purchase 4 bags of ice. The ice maker produced ice to keep drinks cold in the cooler and still provide ice for drinks. It stores in the front closet in our travel trailer and is easily moved to an outside table under the awning. Very happy with the product and friends are impressed with it also.

Works good. Easy to clean. Is heavy but it stays were you put it. Is well insulated. From pressing the on button at room temp. it takes about 2 hours & 45 minutes to fill the tray with ice. The next tray of ice fill up takes about 2 hours. The ice in the tray weights 2 1/2 up to 3 LBS. Of course I would like to make ice faster But for the money and minimal power draw I like it in my house and the RV.

June 14, 2012
Bought this item to ensure I would have ice when it wasn't available elsewhere. Read all the other reviews and found most fairly accurate. It makes great ice (I mostly use the large size) in a very short period of time. One thing I do agree with from previous reviews is that it makes ice, but is not a refrigerator. So, if in a hot area, you have to pull the ice out and put into the freezer of a good cooler to preseve the ice. Otherwise, it will melt over time and just remake the ice again. Cooler weather and out of the sun/heat, it's not a problem and you can let it run to make a full basket of ice before you have to remove. Bottom line is that it's a great ice maker, does what it claims to do by making it fast, keeps making ice as needed and saves money not having to buy ice in bags. I did not find it a problem keeping up with filling the reservoir.

Dometic Ice Maker Review


0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
June 12, 2012
We use lots of ice when on the road and using up half the freezer space for a bag of ice just didn't make sense. We looked at the Dometic I/M and were initially put off by the price but it went on sale and we thought, let's give it a go. We are very glad we did, it has performed flawlessly! The only criticism we have is that it weighs alot and is very bulky. We have traveled with it twice and are going to be trying out another location strategy on the next leg of our trip, hopefully it will be better than inside the camper, time will tell.

Great Ice Maker

June 10, 2012
The ice maker works really well, and provides plenty of ice in a short amount of time. However, since the cubes are not a solid block cube like from a refrigerator/freezer, but rather have a hole in the center, they don't last as long as a regular cube does. They also come out very wet so they tend to stick together when moved to a freezer, but we used ours on last camping trip and it kept us in plenty of ice the entire time - I just had to bust them apart with an ice pick. We also had to return our unit due to a cracked lid - can't say whether it came out of the box like that and we didn't notice it, or whether a couple of days of repeated opening and shutting caused it - but we already have received another one and it's fine. All in all, this is a great item, but I think a little on the pricey side.

When we received our ice maker it was not as heavy as I thought it would be. We tried it out and were surprised at how fast the ice formed and how it worked. Made several batches of the little thimble shaped ice cubes. Highly recommend this to anyone who uses high volumes of ice -- it's a real money saver.

Awesome machine, produces a dozen ice cubes every 5 minutes, in 3 easily selectable sizes. Produces more than enough ice for an enjoyable day camping, or party at home. Don't forget to make an extra batch for the black water tank....let your ice scrub your tank as you drive. Unit will pay for itself in one season for sure.

Always wanted one of these and finally found it on sale and got it. I probably won't be taking it camping in my new 10' trailer, too heavy. I do have it in my laundry room set up to stay and make ice about every 2 or 3 days and put it in the freezer. I had my first cubes in 10 minutes!! My favorite is the medium cube.

Purchased the ice maker just before a long camping trip and it did exactly what I wanted it to do - make ice. Read all the other reviews prior to using and used their experiences to enhance my ice making. Found that keeping up with the water levels was a piece of cake with1 gal containers and after each bin full office, I would transport the ice to our freezer. Makes ice fast (sizes determine time to make); had plenty of time to enjoy our camping ans still keep up with our ice use (always make large cubes, so time was not a factor); never ran out of ice regardless of where we were camping. Am very happy with this product, would recommend to all those who don't want to continuely buy bags of ice and have it slowly melt in your cooler and have sucessfully used it on several camping trips since.

Caught this icemaker on a great off season sale and I must say this an awesome piece. As advertised dumps the first dozen ice cubes in 15 minutes. After I ran a few cycles I figured out that for just drinks use the small cube setting, it makes the cubes more quickly. Looking forward to using the Dometic portable for camping, fishing, hunting, and just anytime I need more ice.

Makes a lot of ice, but you have to stay on top of the process. You'll have to watch the water level constantly if you want to make a lot of ice. The unit does not keep very cold, so you will need to empty the ice as soon as it fills up. Do not put the unit in a warm area as the ice melts quickly. It is amazing how fast it makes ice.

I was camping in 90+ degrees, for over a week. I bought ice to fill a large cooler for beverages the day I left. The Ice Maker kept if topped off for the entire week! I had it set up on an end table outside the trailer, under the awning. Would start it after breakfast, and let it run through cocktail hour. I like the size of the ice cubes, so I now use it for cocktail ice at home.

Very easy to use. 3 settings for ice cube sizes. Once it is chilled down, mine will make 12 small cubes in 7 minutes. Medium in 9 minutes and large in 11. Even comes with a small ice scoop. I even rigged up a direct water feed through the side drainage plug. This way I'm not running back and forth filling the 1 gallon + reserve up all the time. It is well built and insulated. Keeping it out of direct sunlight helps a ton in the cooling process.

Best investment I've made for the RV

Best investment I've made for the RV. We were spending $1.80 each for three bags of ice every 3 to 4 days for the ice chest (our freezer is too small to make ice). I bought this on sale. By mid month it will have more than paid for itself. My husband loves it, now he can have as much ice in his drinks as he wants and still have enough for the ice chest. Works just like it says it will.

Ice maker did not want to work right away. Directions did say to let set for several hours after we received from shipper, to let freon settle. Did find a helpful hint on internet to tilt machine forward about 45 degrees and then try again. Website claimed the float inside line can get stuck in shipping. Did not have any trouble making ice the next day. Made a couple of ice cream buckets of ice throughout the day. Looks like it will be a asset for our camping adventures though.

We bought this rather than repair the ice maker in our home refrigerator. (It takes about 2 1/2 hours to fill our ice bin with medium-sized ice cubes.) Although we haven't taken it in the RV yet, we look forward to not having to deal with multiple ice cube trays! People should note that the ice made is wet ice. The ice maker is not a freezer for storing ice, so when you put the ice into the refirgerator freezer, the cubes will freeze together. We solve that problem by putting the ice in Ziplock bags. When we need loose ice, simply dropping the bag on the floor will break the cubes apart to then put in your ice bin. (Actually, in the RV we use the Ziplock bags to store ice anyway.) The ice maker is HEAVY at nearly 50 pounds. It has a rather large (for an RV) footprint and may present storage problems in smaller RVs. Also, the rubber feet will leave black marks on countertops if it slides across the surface. (For these reasons, I only gave it four stars.) We solved the black mark problem by putting it on a small towel. The water reservoir holds enough water to make about 7 pounds of ice. This is enough to fill the icemaker's ice bin 2 1/2 or 3 times. When the bin fills with ice, a sensor will shut off the process until the ice level drops (either by melting or you removing the ice.) If the water reservoir level gets too low, another sensor will shutdown the icemaker. We are very well pleased with our purchase, so far. The machine does all the manufacture claims for it. It works for us exactly as I hoped it would. (I hate dealing with ice cube trays!)

I was thrilled to have purchased an ice maker, we were going on vacation with a lot of family that likes frozen drinks. Plugged it in and gave it plenty of time to make the ice which it did just like the instructions said, however I am very disappointed that the ice couldn't be stored in the machine. If we didn't keep taking it out it would melt and remake the ice, not sot bad if you don't need yo use it right away and could put it in your freezer. Putting in the freezer makes it all clump together and makes it hard for use in a cup or blender.. The size of the ice maker is BIG and the amount of ice it makes is not proportioned. It works well and was quiet, just not happy that it won't store the ice...

This ice maker was easy to set up. Once the water was added, plugged it in and in 14 minutes had the first set of ice cubes. Within 1 1/2 hours had the first basket full of ice. Took it camping and it sure saved on having to purchase ice for drinks on a hot day. It's small enough to fit in the exterior storage compartment of our RV. I would highly recommend this ice maker to anyone.

Performs as advertised, however there are a few things to know. Says it will make 30 lbs a day, probably so, but doesn't have room to store but maybe 3 blenders full. The front half of the machine is combination water reservoir AND ice storage. The back half is compressor. 4 rubber feet that will leave gummy residue on your hands or counter if you slide it. Also, beware of sharp edges of the metal on bottom corners if you pick it up that way. 7 stitches from mine last week. I duct taped the corners. Cubes are not solid, but hollow round. So will melt a bit faster. Good for what it is.

I have only had this portable Ice Maker for a little over a month and wish I had bought it earlier. It works great. I get up in the a.m. and start making ice and within a short amount of time we have ice for the entire day. Just love it.

Really nice to have for drinking ice around the campsite and for filling small coolers. Don't expect to fill a huge cooler as it would take too long. Normally, I buy one 35lb bag of ice for my large cooler for the adult carbonated beverages to get started and then keep it topped off with ice from the Dometic. Very convenient for quality mixed drinks and iced beverages. A bit noisey which can detract from a peacful and quiet setting but not so much so that it should prevent you from using it. If using outside, it's a good idea to check the water resevoir occasionally as small water loving bugs do find their way inside. It's easy to scoop a bug out with a clean papertowel. No regrets on this purchase!
