Avalon Bay Ice Maker 1

Our refrigerator’s ice maker quit on us. Everything else works fine, and we aren’t ready to renovate our kitchen until next year, and the cost of having it repaired is more than I want to spend, since we will replacing the fridge, so we are stuck with no ice maker.

Yes, I could do what I we all did before refrigerators came out with ice makers built-in and fill up the ice trays with water and wait for them to freeze to get ice, but who had time for that? Really? And buying bags of ice at $2/3 a bag two to three times a week is a pain, too.

I was thrilled to receive an Avalon Bay AB-ICE26 Portable Ice Maker to review… it was a great solution to my ice making problem.

Although I used it in my kitchen on my counter to fill up my ice maker in my fridge, it would be an excellent appliance for outdoor entertaining. You could have ice stocked up and keep the Avalon Bay AB-ICE26 Portable Ice Maker cranking out the ice during the cookout or whatever outdoor gathering you have going on.

It’s so easy to use and you don’t have to babysit it… it will not overflow. To fill up my ice box in my freezer takes filling it twice with water and takes me about two hours. I empty the basket of ice out several times, but I just go about my business and come back to empty it throughout that time. It will produce up to 26 pounds of ice a day.

The Avalon Bay portable ice maker comes in black, silver, and red… I was hoping for silver, but they were out of silver at the time I received mine.

  22. I love the idea of a portable ice maker. Every single one of mine that are in my refrigerator breaks and they are not worth fixing. I am currently without an ice maker AGAIN plus they take up so much freezer space!

Thank you for the review.

  23. I think these are amazing, someday I do hope to have one. I have a bad habit of chewing on ice and I know the Dr said it really isn’t good for the stomach but either way, I still want one for all the cold drink I make 😉 and love the way this one looks, very sleek
