Operating the EdgeStar IP210TI Ice Maker

The EdgeStar ice maker has a simple control panel: a couple of buttons through which you can choose the size of the ice cubes (small, medium, and large) and an on/off button. The last two indicator lights warn you when the ice bin is full or when you need to add water.

Installing the ice maker is fairly simple: you just plug it in, add water, and after ten minutes you can enjoy your first batch of ice. It requires no drain, so you can add either tap or bottled water. Just as mentioned in the specs, the ice bin cn hold 2.5 pounds of ice at a time; after producing this much, the ice maker will stop until some or all of the ice is removed. Although it doesn’t have an insulated ice bin,  the EdgeStar IP210TI has a recycling function that allows it to reuse the water resulting from meted off ice cubes.

What Users Say

John says that he very much likes this EdgeStar ice maker and mentions that if you use filtered water, the ice cubes are tasteless. The bad side is that you have to manually fill the EdgeStar ice maker. Nevertheless, his family virtually loves this ice making machine.

Another user was unlucky. After a couple of months, the ice maker started making small ice cubes. Although his unit had coverage under the warranty and the company helped the customer with the issues he had, he is displeased with his investment. He does not recommend this ice making machine to other people.

The third user, RickMan, comes from a family of campers and is very satisfied with this EdgeStar ice maker. Although they were a bit worried by some of the negative reviews posted, decided to buy it. They put a gallon of water and leave it running. They mention that they do not have any problems with the ice maker.

Verdict

There is no perfect recipe for the perfect, unbreakable, not too costly, yet not too cheap ice maker. But the EdgeStar ice maker with its titanium finish and solid construction is sure to last and to keep on offering high-quality ice. With three size choices, fast ice making, compact size and lightweight build, this is a safe bet.
