Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

TTEWard 7/1/2020

We love having our nugget ice machine! It sits on our counter next to our refrigerator, and we use it to fill out freezer ice dispenser (which no longer makes ice, hence the need for a machine), so we always have nugget ice available. It is a bit loud, but about the same as our dishwasher, so it's nothing that we are bothered by. It is easy to clean (which our previous countertop ice maker was not).

Great Ice Maker

Will S 6/29/2020

This ice maker does a great job at making pellet ice. Others have complained about the noise but I do not feel it is any more excessive than an in-refrigerator ice maker. Here are my thoughts: Pros: - Makes GREAT pellet ice - Easy to setup - Easy to fill Cons: - You need to continually make sure the ice is not piling up in the center of the bin as the device will see the bin as full when it is not. - This is not a "silent" unit. It is quite but not silent. - We have four people in our house and all use Yeti Rambler 30 oz. tumblers, while it fills quickly enough, we often reach the bottom of the bin.

The GOOD ice!

sarasmile633 6/29/2020

It's been a month and so far so good! My 2 yr. old LG fridge ice maker has been broke for months. Repair company said $500 to fix and good luck finding anyone to even work on it. This made more sense to me then throwing money into a "possible" fix. Easy to clean, extra side water tank is a given.

Idaho FAM 6/29/2020

We have loved our first weeks with this. We bought it for DAD for Father's Day. It makes a quick batch of ice, yummy!! I saw some concerns and questions about noise. We can hear it running but it's NOT loud at all. It is a perfect "running sound" that lets us know its still working. Setting it up was VERY EASY! I had it running the first batch in about 15-20 minutes.

Great ice

Tmax68 6/28/2020

I've always wanted great ice and hate refridg ice , so I got this one for Father's Day. The ice is perfect!! The machine looks modern and great on our counter. It is a bit loud and only makes a gallon of ice at a time...so here is how I am using it. I run it at night. Each morning I dump the ice container into a gallon freezer bag and place it flat in the refrigerator freezer drawer. I have about a 3 gallon ice bin in the freezer also. Since the ice is wet out it the maker it freezes into a flat thin cube in the freezer bag. I take the bag out of the freezer, drop it onto the granite counter which breakers it up into the perfect little cubes I love and then empty those into the freezes ice bin. Now they stay perfectly frozen and separate for my drinks. If this sounds like a lot of work it's really not. I always have at least 3 gallons of perfect ice on hand and never even hear the machine! The only system I like better is my sisters $3000 free standing unit...but the ice is the same! I think you will love this ice maker!!

Jeepgirl2 6/26/2020

The ice was perfect I loved it! The bad review is after having it for three weeks the unit started making a horrible and loud noise. It struggled to make a bin of ice even if it ran all night. Opal is working on a warranty swap, but for the price I expect better quality and for it to last more than a few weeks.

Sosa21 6/26/2020

It's a good product, but the ice is not as soft as the way they promote it. also gives off a lot of heat on one of the side. Which might be a problem later with the side tank. Heat is out of the right side. Over all I still love it and happy I got it.

I purchased this product with great anticipation for our newly being remodeled "out door kitchen" - decided to spend extra dollars ($500+) because of GE Profile name and quality I have come to expect from other GE Profile appliances ( ovens, refrigerator) and in general have been pleased ( for indoor kitchen) - this arrived and did not work - the button to turn it on did not depress - I did receive a refund but decided not to replace - very disappointed

Pfef1379 6/24/2020

I've had it for a month. Works well so far. Takes about 4 hours to fill up. Makes great ice. We will see how it does in the future. One thing I did is I let my machine sit in its spot for a full 24hrs so all the freon could settle. Which is very important. The app needs work. The schedule doesn't work well at all.

Flawless so far

NVCraig 6/23/2020

It took me at least a year to make this purchase. Every time I'd come back to the site to order, I'd read some of the negative reviews...especially those about noise. Well I obviously took the chance and so far I'm thrilled I did. Unit has been flawless with one user related mistake that caused the unit to squeak like crazy. Not saying this is what others experienced and complained about, but seemed awfully close. Turns out that you can easily pinch the feed/drain hoses on the back of the unit by pushing the unit to close to the back wall. The hose to the external tank was getting pinched causing the unit to run dry and make that horrible noise. Pulled the unit out a few inches and problem solved. Love the ice.
