    Very Effective Dedicated Ice Maker
    8/22/2010

    Customer review by MountainDave

    5.0 stars 8/22/2010 by MountainDave
    by MountainDave

    We are building our own home and needed a better, more robust source of ice for drinks during hot weather. A compact refigerator with ice cube trays just didn't work well. This Magic Chef MCIM22 unit is fantastic. The water well holds about a gallon and makes ice amazingly fast, just as the specs say. From first startup, I timed 10.3 minutes for the first batch, which includes about 1-2 minutes of startup initialization. Following cycles were 7.8 minutes each. These times are for small cubes. Medium and large sizes seem to take several minutes longer and are not that much larger. Let me explain the sizing: The "cubes" are actually like thick-walled thimbles formed around 9 freezing "fingers" that stick downward into a tray of water (see photo). Medium and large sizes just let the ice grow thicker walls. The most efficient freezing occurs in the early stages when the walls are thinner, and actually, drinks chill faster with lots of small cubes. As others have said, noise is fairly subdued. Compressor and fan operate with a hum similar to any standard refrigerator. Air intake is from the rear, and warm air vents out the left side, so those two sides need several inches of clearance. I think the right side could go nearly flush against a wall, despite the instructions for clearance on all sides. The rattle of cubes being dumped every 8 minutes is louder but not objectionable (unless perhaps it is located in a small conference room). The features are quite easy to understand. Water-empty and ice-bucket-full have dedicated indicator lights. One caution: the sensor for ice-bucket-full is a shiny, temperature-sensing peg about twice the length of a pencil eraser located in the ice bucket near the top right corner. If you park the ice scoop near or over that sensor (see photo), cubes will not contact the sensor when full, and overfilling and/or jamming will very likely occur. This seems like a good way to damage the unit. For the energy-conscious buyer, rated load is 1.9A, or about the same as two 100-watt light bulbs. When the ice bucket is full, electric consumption is essentially zero. As a dedicated ice-maker, this unit is superb, amazingly fast, and pretty simple to setup and operate.

    My wife and I have been using an ice machine for several years because we got tired of messing with ice trays... besides, the ice trays took up valuable room in our refrigerator freezer. We had previously bought a refurbished machine on eBay, but we discovered the machine had issues. It was loud (compressor?) and the metal ice bucket was a magnet for mold. When the old one went kaput we bought this ice machine online from Wal-Mart. It is a little bit smaller than our old machine, but we soon learned that it makes ice at a rate that is nothing less than amazing. Also, it is so quiet that you can only hear it when it dumps ice into the easy-to-clean plastic bucket. We love this machine and use it about twice a week. We have even started putting large freezer bags of ice in our big freezer for fishing trips and outdoor barbeques. You can buy a bigger, more expensive ice machine but I doubt you will find a machine any better than this one. An added bonus is that it doesn't take up much counter space. Again, we love it and give it our highest recommendation.

    This arrived in good time, Site to Store, and was easy to pick up. It's a little heavy and takes up a bit more counter space than I would like but it makes Ice fast and plenty of it. I move the Ice to the freezer in plastic bags when the bin becomes full. The next morning it's easy to drop the bag onto the counter and bust up the lumps. Some have said it's noisy but we don't find it to be annoying at all. We us it in our RV and by making one or two bins in the evening we have plenty of Ice for the next day without using too much space in the freezer. We bought through the Discover Card shopping portal and received $6.00 cash back bonus.

    • A. Ice maker of this size may or may not have a compressor. It depends on the design spec. In place of compressor, they can use a semiconductor thermoelectric heat/cool pump working on the principles of the Peltier-Seebeck effect. This is what they use on some of the portable cooler/refrigator.

    • A. Yes, you need the power of the compressor to rapidly cool the water into ice. Other types of cooling would be much more expensive than it would be worth to sell. It is the most economical way at this time.

    • A. All the cubes are about the same size. The difference is the thickness of the cube. The size is really based on thickness of the cube. So, assume a small cube is 1/8 of an inch thick, medium is 1/4 of an inch and large is up to 1/2 inch thick. They're all less than 2 inches tall by 1 inch or more round. The size is based on the amount of time the freezing coils sit in the water bath. As time passes, all the cubes melt over time and the water gets recycled. I now use this instead of my slow fridge icemaker. I use only filtered water.

    • A. Without measuring let me try this... The smallest cubes will be about the size of the last joint of your pinky (little finger) and the largest will be about the size of last joint of your thump. They will probably be larger than this, but I am a very large man and this is the easiest way I can think to describe the size. I think you will find that the largest setting will give you the best ice for beverages.
