For maximum convenience and customization, the door is reversible for fast access during those times where you can’t spare a second. It also provides a range of temperatures to suit different food and drink.  All in all, it’s an excellent little dorm fridge that’s served many a cramming student long into the night, especially with midterms right around the corner. Our handy guide to the best soft sided coolers features more great products like this.
For a top-rated nugget ice maker that has plenty of convenient features, we recommend the FirstBuild Opal Nugget Ice Maker. It produces 1 pound of ice nuggets per hour, and the bin can hold up to 3 pounds. The clear bin lets you see how much ice you have available and it’s easy to pull forward when scooping ice (ice scoop included). The bin is also insulated to keep the ice cold, but as it inevitably melts the ice maker will sense the lower level of ice and automatically make more.
“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.
Our writers spent 5 hours researching the best ice makers on the market. Before making their final recommendations, they considered 12 different ice machines to buy overall, screened options from 11 different brands and manufacturers, and read over 20 user reviews (both positive and negative). All of this research adds up to recommendations you can trust.
Small enough to move on and off the counter, this impressive unit can make up to 48 pounds of ice per day, and it holds nearly 2.4 pounds for easy retrieval. Unlike other machines on this list, the Sentern Ice Maker only produces cubes—not bullet shaped ice. You can choose from small, medium, or large cubes by adjusting the cooling time, and depending on the size you choose the first batch of ice will be done in about 15 minutes. The clear, dense cubes melt slowly, keeping your cocktails cold without diluting them. Other handy features include a digital control panel for easy programming, a see-through window so you can monitor ice production, and a stain resistant exterior.

According to our tester, the highlight of this ice maker is the fact that it makes “thick, robust ice that doesn't melt quickly.” Our reviewer also liked that it has an option for three different sizes of ice and is super quick. The downside? “It doesn't have a timer function and takes up a fair amount of space in small kitchens,” she explained. However, our tester said, “If you need a portable ice maker it won't disappoint, and though it's not as small as some on the market, the ice it makes is fantastic.”
Ice storage capacity If your ice maker can produce a lot of ice quickly, but it can’t hold much, you’ll need to keep removing the ice and storing it elsewhere. That’s great if you’re planning ahead and you can check the machine regularly, but a machine with a larger storage capacity might be able to hold enough ice so you’ll never need to unload it to make more room.
Bringing the 50s straight into the 21st Century without the slightest hint of irony, Igloo RCA Retro Blue Bar Fridge is a small refrigerator that will fit nicely in any bar across the country, and any living room, bedroom, dorm, or den, too. Using compression cooling, it delivers incredible chilling results, and the adjustable thermostat makes it easy to switch up the temperature if you haven’t found the magic level yet.

This Danby Compact All Refrigerator is our second Danby pick for the list, but don’t think it’s any less effective than the first. The sleek black design makes it stand out by not standing out and means it can sit modestly in your room without tempting you too much. Again, there’s a CanStor beverage system for simple retrieval, and removable shelves to make the most of the space.
