Making Ice is Easy With Ivation's professional-grade automated icemaker, it takes just 6 minutes to make ice! That's right: In less time than it takes to drive to the nearest store or gas station for a bag of ice, you can have a fresh batch of ice cubes made right in the comfort of your own home. It requires neither a glaciology degree nor Mount Everest or North Pole accolades. Simply pour a 'drop into the bucket', and press a button or two. Once the icemaker is done doing its thing, you'll enjoy beautifully solid chillers that remain separated and don't agglomerate. 26-pound output. 2 ice sizes You're busy entertaining and can't afford to serve drinks that are any less than perfect. That is precisely when our icemaker proves to be your ultimate hostess' weapon - from holidays to bridal showers to graduation parties to birthdays to charity events. To keep up with all the glass clinking, it features 2 selectable ice cube sizes so you can satisfy everyone from the whiskey sipper to the juice junkie. At maximum output, it can produce as much as 26.5 pounds of ice in a single 24-hour cycle. Another superior feature is the water recycling system: Unused ice melts back into the water reservoir and is turned into fresh ice during the next ice-making session. Light-Up Alerts Inform You of Cold, Hard Facts When the water level in the 2.5-quart (80-Ounce) reservoir runs low, a red indicator alerts you to add more water. When the ice bucket is full, another indicator alerts you to remove them so more ice may be created. There's even a flashing snowflake icon to keep you informed when an ice-making session is on standby. And for your peace of mind and safety, the unit shuts off automatically when the ice bucket is full. To make way for new ice, store ready cubes in cooler or freezer for later use.
