Having an ice maker at home can be a worthwhile investment if you entertain a lot or have a large family. Most refrigerators are able to produce ice, but it's not as efficient as having a dedicated ice maker. Whether you're replacing an existing ice machine or looking to buy one for the first time, the NewAir 50 lb. Portable Ice Maker is a great choice.
“It's lightweight, truly portable, doesn't take up a ton of space on the counter, and looks nice,” our tester said of this ice maker. In terms of downsides, our reviewer noted, “The ice it makes isn't as thick as other models, and it has a tendency to melt faster while it sits in the basket, possibly because the machine isn't as well insulated.” The takeaway? “It's worth buying if you have a small space or an RV, or need to take the ice maker on trips,” she explained.
Along with this, it’s large, but certainly not as large as it first appears – and we mean that in a positive way. It’ll still fit perfectly in your office, your bar, or even the family RV for a convenient and simple hydration station for you, family and friends. Furthermore, it boasts a vast interior space that you might struggle to fill. Nah, we know that’s not true, but never worry about wanting for fridge space ever again.
When choosing from our commercial ice makers, it’s important to know your environment. Air cooled units are cost-effective solutions for cooler spaces because they don’t require additional water costs to operate, whereas water cooled models are ideal for extremely hot establishments. We also carry remote machines that operate more quietly than other ice machine equipment because the condenser is stored outside. You’ll even find space-efficient undercounter units for use in bars as well as combination machines that dispense ice and water.
Many people prefer to have ice in their drinks, and there's no doubt that ice can instantly provide you with additional refreshment on hot summer days. Owning an ice machine can not only make it so that you can enjoy chilled drinks at home, but they can also turn into a money-making machines during the summer months. Find new and used ice machines at various price points on eBay.

Speed How quickly do you need your ice? Whether you prefer to make a lot of ice ahead of time or want a constant supply flowing will determine how important speed is. Some machines can supply the first ice quickly, so you can get the party started, but if you don’t have sufficient storage space for ice, it’s wise to get an ice maker that can keep up with hourly demand.

“The ice maker makes great ice and it's very quiet,” our tester said. She also liked that it features a timer and a self-cleaning cycle. However, while it can hold a lot of ice, our reviewer pointed out that its bulkiness makes it difficult to store or transport. She concluded, “If space isn't a concern, or if you need an appliance that can produce a large amount of ice, it's a really great appliance.”
