Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect and Plentiful Ice!!!!! Unlike the puny output from a refrigerator ice maker, this under the counter appliance keeps up with larger commericial machines in supplying ice for our family and friends. Thanks to a superb filtration system, the ice is clear and void of any chemical taste. The motor is quiet and the appearance is pleasant.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Size of ice. What a joke! No choice for ice size - you must accept the little one that is programmed. Add ice to a beverage and in a short time ice has melted and diluted your beverage. My last icemaker had 3 choices. Did not receive a gift.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You don't really buy these units, you rent them. This is NOT a sweepstakes entry - I actually spent money buying 2 of them and lived with them - one after another and had the same exact problem. Both units had a complete failure of the sealed system. 2 for 2. How lucky am I. Instead of repairing the first unit Kitchen Aid offered me a discount on a new unit. They felt a repair of this magnitude was extreme, and I felt the offer price for a new unit was reasonable, as I had the prior unit a few years and it was outside of the full warranty period. The second unit had another complete failure of the sealed system after about 2 years, still under full warranty, but this time they wanted to replace all the parts by a local service provider. Quality isn't what it was in the past. At this price point one would expect a reliable product. I see no value in paying more and getting less, just to have a brand name.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice machine but something's missing This new ice machine replaced my KitchenAid I've had for 9 years. The old one didn't have a water filter. This one has an "Ice2" filter that twists into the front control panel. Logically, you'd think if a filter is required for the machine to work properly, KitchenAid would have installed it at the factory during assembly. Think again. For the price we paid, KitchenAid should have sold a complete product that worked straight out of the box. That was not the case. I was not happy getting a new machine and then discovering all the parts to make it function properly are not included. You have been warned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Purchased a new Kitchen Aid under the counter icemaker model KUID308ESS in Jan. of 2016, now in July of 2017 it has stopped working. After spending several frustrating minutes on the phone with a Whirlpool / Kitchen Aid customer service representative trying to convince her that I had warranty coverage for 3 years verses the 1 year she was telling me (thank goodness I still had the paperwork on the machine), they arranged for a repairman. The repairman came a few days later and is telling me the condenser coil had a leak and needed to be replaced. I'm pretty much a hands-on guy with mechanical knowledge and this type of leak don't just occur in a year's time span. My guess, it's a known factory defect or design problem. Nonetheless, I'm out an icemaker for several weeks during the peak of the summer when ice is needed for drinks, adult beverages, etc. I'm not happy about this and wouldn't recommend this purchase to anyone, especially the way I was treated on the phone with their customer service.
