The Ice It Makes

When buying an ice maker, the type of ice it makes and how fast the machine can make it is obviously one of the most important features you will be looking at.

The countertop ice maker machine by Euhomy can make 24 ice cubes every cycle, with each cycle lasting 12 to 18 minutes. That means every 24 hours, you can create up to 40 pounds of nugget ice cubes.

Best of all, the thickness of the ice cubes can be adjusted to suit your demands, allowing you to produce flawless cocktails or have the ice fit into any glass or cup.

Because it is able to produce ice quickly, this machine will be great for garden parties in the summer, or any other large event, as it will be able to accommodate a lot of people’s ice needs.

Water Needs

The Euhomy Ice Maker features a large 2.2 litre water tank, which will provide enough water for it to produce five cycles of ice cubes.

This means that you can get around 120 ice cubes out of one tank of water. One of the biggest issues with ice makers is that water waste is a common problem.

This happens when the ice in the tray is not used fast enough, and so it melts.

This can be very annoying as the water may spill out of the machine and make your countertop and maybe even your floor all wet.

The Euhomy has a clever system in place to fix this problem though.

Inside the machine is a water recycling system that catches melted water.

Once it has gone through an internal water filtration system, this water is added back into the water tank so that new ice cubes can be made with it.

LCD Display

This machine features and LDC screen display for you to control all of the settings of the mchine.

From here you can turn the ice maker on and off, set a timer for how long you want the machine to make ice for, and also increase or decrease the amount of ice that the machine is making.

This last feature is very useful as it allows for more control over ice production and lets you make sure that you are not left with a lot of excess ice at the end of the day.

The machine will also let you know when the water level is low using the digital display, and you can also check the water level using the electronic indication.

This display also solves another issue that is common with ice mkers.

With some machines, the ice may begin to overflow out of the bucket once the bucket is full, but keeping an eye on the ice level all the time can be very distracting and keep you from enjoying your party.

However, the Euhomy ice cube machine will alert you when the bucket is full, allowing you to quickly remove the cubes.

The machine would then begin producing new ones, making the entire process seamless and convenient.

Efficient And Quiet

This machine has the most modern refrigeration technology available right now.

To ensure that your ice maker produces the best quality ice cubes, it uses efficient compressors to make the ice quickly and perfectly every time.

This is also not a heat-producing unit, so there is less chance of the ice melting inside of the machine.

A lot of ice makers have the downside of being quite noisy machines, but because of the advanced technology in the Euhomy, this won’t be an issue for you.

This machine uses a speedy but silent chilling system. This not only saves energy but also keeps the nugget ice machine cool and the environment quiet.

Self-Cleaning Function

While you may not think of it at first, like all kitchen units you have to clean ice makers, even though they just use water.

Cleaning an ice maker can be very annoying due to all the small parts and tubes that can make up the machine. 

This is another issue that the Euhomy has solved though, thanks to its self-cleaning function.

All you have to do is press the timer button for longer than 5 seconds and the cleaning cycle will begin. This will save you so much time when you’re cleaning your kitchen.

User Friendly

The Euhomy ice cube maker is really simple to operate thanks to the easy to understand LCD display.

Turning on the machine, cleaning it, and transporting it is all quite straightforward, with the light weight of the machine being a big benefit here.

With the removable ice basket and scoop, you can easily remove the cubes and store up to 2.2 pounds of cubes at once.

As a result, you can enjoy fresh and perfect ice cubes at any time. This machine is made of stainless steel, ensuring that it will not rust and that you will be able to use it for an extended period of time.

The automatic cleaning mode also allows you to clean your machine with a single press of a button.

Takeaway

The Euhomy Ice Maker Machine Countertop 40lbs/24H: Portable IM-F has been designed to be as easy to use as possible.

While it doesn’t have all of the extra features that some other ice makers have, this machine proves that sometimes basic is better.

If you are looking for a small ice maker that will be able to accommodate a large party of guests then you can’t do much better than the Euhomy Ice Maker.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Efficient but quiet – you will get a huge amount of ice from this machine, and it will be super quiet when it is turned on
  • Removable ice bucket – not all machines have this feature but it is very useful. It allows you to take a large of ice to another place (you could put it in a big bowl and add bottled drinks to keep them cool) rather than moving the ice scoop by scoop.

Cons

  • Doesn’t make clear ice – while this isn’t really a downside as it makes no difference to the taste of the ice, some people like the aesthetic of clear ice over cloudy ice.

Euhomy Ice Maker Machine Countertop Buying Guide

Whether you are buying an ice maker for the first time or are looking to replace an old one, here are the most important features you need to take a look at before making your purchase.

Types Of Ice

You may not know this, but there are many different types of ice, though it is all made of water. Ice machines usually advertise that they make one specific type of ice. These are cube ice, flacked ice, bullet ice, and nugget ice.

While all of these are just water frozen into different shapes, each type of ice has its own uses.

Bullet ice, for example, is very good at going into bottles to keep your drinks cold from within. It’s best to know what type of ice you want before you buy a machine to make sure that you get the right one.

Noise

As small ice machines will usually be kept in the kitchen, you’ll want to make sure that they are not noisy or distracting to you and your guests. Most ice makers will advertise their noise levels, and if they don’t that usually means that they will be very loud.

The best machines to get are ones that produce noise at levels lower than 40 decibels, as this is whisper quiet.

You will always hear a slight humming noise with ice makers, but the quieter it is the less noticeable it will be.

Speed

You will want your ice maker to produce ice quickly, especially if you will be catering to a large number of guests.

Like with noise, most ice makers will advertise how much ice they can make and how long this will take.
