  1. Thanks for taking the time to review the Igloo ice maker. I just got an advert from Sams Club that has the 20 lb ice maker on sale for $99. I’ve read about 20 reviews so far. Some were great and some not so good. There were only about  and it was nice to see the machine in action.

  2. Nice review. If I had a bigger van I would probably get one of these. I love having ice available for sodas and stuff. That ice maker is a tad too big though. I think that is the smallest one can expect though for an ice maker.

  3. thanks for the review, I need to know how do you clean it, there is some black dots appering in the back side of the moving try

  4. I bought my icemaker on Amazon it is a Chinese manufactured product, I paid $99 on sale. Very similar to the igloo that you purchased. I’ve had no trouble whatsoever with this product. It’s amazing how fast it makes ice cubes. The drain plug is on the bottom so you can’t knock it off. Thanks for the video.

  5. The more ice that fills the basket the colder it gets.I don’t take any out until the basket is full. Empty into a plastic bag, or poor basket into your freezer ice bin, and obviously, keep in freezer. in two hours, I have enough ice for several days. The first day or so, the ice is small. we use distilled water because we have hard water. Our Igloo was $80 at Walmart. it paid for itself pretty quickly, we use a lot of ice. This makes clear ice with distilled water. the New Air brand doesn’t.
