NewAir AI-100S Review

The NewAir AI-100S has been a favorite among portable ice makers for years. It makes ice fast, it’s easy to use, and it has a large, removable ice bucket. It’s a product that just works, and that’s why people love it so much.

Large, Removable Ice Bucket

This is by far one of the largest ice buckets available in a model of this size. This means you have more ice available at any given moment, compared to some models which only hold one cycles worth of ice at a time. You won’t have to dump the bucket into a larger container as often if you want to have a lot of ice on hand.

No Installation Required

Perfect for taking camping in the RV, to an event, or anywhere you need ice fast. You don’t need to connect your ice machine to a water supply, you simply fill the reservoir and enjoy fresh ice in minutes.

Customer Reviews

At the time of creating this review, the NewAir AI-100S had received more customer reviews than almost any other portable ice machine on the market.

Most people had positive things to say about this ice maker. Some of the reviews were not so kind.

Follow the link below this section to see what real customers had to say about this item.

Some solid advice about leaving your unit “right side up” for 24 hours before using. Several reviews commented on their machines being noisy or not working at all, and this is likely to blame.

Of course, like most portable ice makers, there’s no internal refrigeration to keep the ice from melting. The ice melts and the water from the ice melting drains into the reservoir, and fresh ice is made. It won’t melt immediately though, these machines are insulated, so it’s kind of like a little cooler.

This model has been around for a long time. It might not be the fanciest, or the most advanced portable ice maker, but it certainly is time tested and reliable. The huge number of ratings and overall scores allows me to gladly recommend this ice machine to anyone.
