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.
