When you need ice and you need it fast these portable ice makers get the job done.

Like the Luma, this compact ice maker byFrigidairealso helps ease countertop real estate woes. Coming in at 17.8 x 11 x 14.9", this ice maker produces 26 pounds of ice in 24 hours in two different sizes of ice (small and large, naturally).It’s easy to use: Close the drain plug, fill the water reservoir (below the water line, of course), insert the ice basket, cover, plug it in, and press the power button. Once the green light comes on, a batch of bullet ice cubes will drop down from the Evaporator Fingers (yes, that’s what they’re called) to the ice basket. The manual claims the first ice making cycle will take anywhere from eight to 13 minutes (a quick turnaround compared to other machines)—and we were pleasantly surprised to see that it actually does. Once the basket is full, the machine will stop automatically; scoop out the ice, recover, and the machine will start again unless the water level is too low (at which point an Add Water indicator illuminates).

Also, like the Luma, the ice basket needs to be empty for a proper cleaning. A rear drain cap makes cleanup fairly simple so it’s beneficial to have your ice maker set up next to your sink for easy draining.At only $130, this product won’t break the bank, but will still produce solid (though not clear like the Luma) ice at great speed.
