Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good ice, but rusted within a few months We were very excited to add this ice maker to our new bar/kitchen at our lake house (to conveniently pack our coolers for boating, and entertain afterwards). Upon installation, it functioned as expected and yielded good quality ice in high volumes. However, after a few months, I was cleaning/inspecting the inside and noticed a very dark rust-colored stain on an inner surface. Come to find out, a small hidden bracket that holds a sensor in place in the upper interior of the unit was rusted. The purified water supply does not come into contact with this bracket, so it's very odd that it rusted in such a short amount of time. After some phone calls to KitchenAid, they agreed to a warranty replacement. I'm now thankful to have a new unit, and am hoping that this one has a stainless bracket that will not rust. Hopefully I can post a more positive rating once the new unit runs for a longer duration without issues. Thanks to KitchenAid for replacing the unit, and hopefully we'll have more luck with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Ice Maker So far works as expected. Handle on door is a great feature. If it came with a scooper it would be even better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Amenity Very pleased with the ice maker. Easy to install. Wish there was a way to dump the entire bucket of ice without having to use the scoop for everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ICE-ICE-ICE BABY We have been spoiled to an ice-maker for 9 years. When it went out I realized how dependent on it we had become. However, I would trade it in, in a heartbeat, for this new Kitchen Aid ice-maker! It makes ice at twice the speed the other one did. The cubes are a little slimmer which makes them attractive when serving a beverage. The new machine maintains the ice longer than our previous one did, and I am delighted this Kitchen Aid ice-machine is now part of our kitchen appliance family!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This thing was terrible. Obvious cheap build right out of the box. Parts are plastic and fit is flimsy. I know ice makers are notoriously noisy, especially in a residential application, but this one is right up there. Made ice fine for the first year then began to produce inconsistent cube size and quantity, even with recommended cleanings. Limped along with it for another year when the compressor went out. Our appliance repair guy said it wasn't worth the cost to fix. The only reason I went with this one is a kitchen remodel to stainless and we had an 18" space. KitchenAid seems to be the only one making this size. My new ice maker will be a 15" Scotsman commercial grade unit. I'll gladly install fillers on each side for the new fit. If I'm going to pay almost as much for an ice maker as a full size refrigerator, it better last as long as I need it to. My 20 year old one is in the garage and still making ice!
