Are you sick of lugging bags of ice from the store and just want a dependable ice maker that does what it’s supposed to without any fancy bells and whistles? If so, I would recommend checking out the Mr. Freeze MIM-18.
It’s a 26 pound per day model that has a removable ice basket, an adorable plastic ice scoop that will fill a pint glass almost perfectly, and an attractive stainless steel finish to match a modern decor.
It may cost a tiny bit more than the competition, but it makes up for it in dependability. Some people have reported running machines from this brand for well over ten years without a problem.
