Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for NewAir 28 lb Drop-down Portable Ice Maker. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.50 stars, and the price range is $165.36-$205.37.

The NewAir 28-lb Drop-down Portable Ice Maker is an easy to use ice maker that is useful for those who want to stop buying bags of ice or are looking for a portable way of making ice cubes. This product is both quiet and easy to use, pumping out ice in a matter of minutes after turning on and adding water. Coming in a variety of colors, the ice maker is also customizable, allowing users to choose the size of ice cube they desire, from a normal square to small ice chips. 

The machine stores up to two pounds of ice cubes at a time in a refrigerated container, but continuously produces ice cubes when the bin has room and as long as water is present. This means there can always be a constant stream of ice in the bin that also comes with a scooper to keep it sanitary.

The only concerns some customers have shared is that the ice sensor may corrode over time, making it so the ice maker stops working as it cannot sense if the bin is empty or full. However, most reviews raved about this product, calling it innovative and very useful for on-the-go ice needs like at outdoor parties or campsites

Our strategy is to remove ice cubes every couple of batches, to a bag in the freezer, shaking the bag each time to make sure that cubes don't stick together.

Buying ice gets a tad expensive and our camper freezer isn't really big enough for ice trays.

The product is awesome, but it's also very important to know that NewAir Customer Service is equally awesome.

We've countered this by keeping an ice bowl in our little trailer freezer until it's frozen solid & then transferring it into our cooler outside.

The only set up was cleaning it out with soapy water and then adding filtered water.
