Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Love it! Made more space in my freezer!

TW82 3/25/2021

I bought this because I wanted the convenience of ice on demand, the durability of GE products, and who doesn't love nugget ice?! It does what it says without any issues thus far, and we have more space in our freezer! We have a pretty small fridge without an ice maker so it was a pain to make several trays of ice and empty them into the bucket. Inevitably, someone would leave an ice cube or two without filling the ice trays. And ice trays also get dirty and cause all that stuff to go in your ice. Now i don't have to worry about it anymore! I use distilled water in mine, and I've found it doesn't use too much of the water from the reservoir, just the water from the ice as it melts. Cleaning it is easy, and I've heard it should really be kept up on, on a weekly basis. The machine starts making ice as soon as the ice level drops, whether that means it's melting, or you open the door to pull some out. Basically, you'll always have ice unless you use the scheduling feature on the app. I definitely recommend this to others!

I love nugget ice and absolutely love this ice maker. I was actually surprised how quickly it makes ice. We go through a lot of ice in my household and this machine is able to keep up. We just had our first cookout of the spring and summer and I was able to bag some ice ahead of time to be able to keep up with demand.

Chewable Ice At Home

Sgt Jay 3/24/2021

I use to have to stop at certain places within our town to get chewable ice. Now I have a steady supply right at home! The app allows you to program the run time on the machine so the ice is ready when you are. I've even turned my machine on remotely before I left work!

Our refrigerator ice maker went out twice so we really wanted a freestanding ice maker. We had a cheap ice maker at work that only worked a few months so I didn't want to waste money purchasing an ice maker I was going to need to replace. Read great reviews on the 'sonic' ice maker so we went for it. Love it so far. I did hear the ice maker at first but I must be used to the sounds now because I don't hear it at all.

Awesome ice!

Rick Santa Clarita 3/22/2021

This is a great machines. Makes ice quickly, easy to setup and prep. It is a bit heavy, so just realize they when first setting up donuts placed properly to minimize having to move it. The ice is amazing! Love the fact that it recycles the melted ice/water. The ice does not melt quickly and is easily chewable too, so not hard ice. Very efficient. Love the scheduling ability to run when we sleep, or not at meal times when we're near it. It's not really that noisy, but it's constant white noise when it runs. Certainly would recommend this unit without hesitation to anyone looking for a quality unit.

Pkbolin 3/22/2021

I am the lady who pulls up at Sonic to order 4 bags of ice at a time and then races home with it in a cooler hoping it will not completely melt in this South Carolina heat. Now I have it waiting on me anytime I want it. It is actually even more chewable than Sonic ice.

Smile 61 3/22/2021

I normally had to purchase bags of ice from Sonic, or get it by the cup at Arco gas stations. Now I just go to my kitchen and get all the ice I need. I also love the fact that I can connect and control it using my iPhone. Running low on ice, no problem. I can get a new batch started before I leave work and it's ready and waiting when I get there.

This was our second unit because we returned the first one because it stopped making ice. I was extremely impressed and excited about this machine but after we brought home our 2nd new machine it started making a loud noise and stopped working on the SECOND day! This is poorly designed or has some quality issues. Going to save my money and just use my fridges ice maker.

TomPhillips 3/20/2021

My daughter loves ice from sonic and Chick-fil-A and we've tried a few other icemakers that just did not deliver but this one does. We opted for the Opel 2.0 got it and setup up was easy and absolutely love it it is on 24 x 7. I saw some reviews that said it was loud honestly it's not loud at all it just has a little hum to it. It's it's in our kitchen countertop and is perfect. The instructions could be a little bit clear I'm getting Wi-Fi up and running I called learned the secret trick and it's good to go. I also opted to buy from GE direct because you get a second year warranty for free. Yes it is expensive for an icemaker however you get what you pay for and in this case it is phenomenal. I would wholly recommend it and buy it again. And this is NOT review review for my promotional offer I paid full price for it.

The good ice 3/19/2021

This ice maker is worth the money! It's quiet and I can have it running all day without noise or it getting hot. The ice is to die for, but make sure you are using filtered water and not tap. Easy to set up, highly recommend running a couple extra cycles than what is recommended after the bleach. 10/10 it is a must buy!

Nothrin 3/18/2021

In general I love this machine, I find it's noise level acceptable, and love the quality of the ice. The main cons are the price, and how cleaning requires me to move the machine around to access the drain hoses. That said I used to barely use ice in my drinks and I bought this for a crushed ice replacement in cocktails. Now I use ice in nearly every cold drink I have at home. There are now other nugget ice makers out there for less expense, but this one is really much better build quality.

TGal07 3/17/2021

Where to begin? The ice is perfect - in shape, consistency and chew (yes, I have ice chewers!) from kids drinks to adult beverages it's great. My husband especially likes the wifi capability and scheduling so that the ice is ready when we want it. Once it gets going it keeps the ice container full and much to our surprise there was still ice the next day in the bin. Can't wait to use it poolside under the cabana this summer!

Excellent functionality, but noisy

Mike_W 3/16/2021

The product makes great ice very quickly and the ice bin holds it frozen. The WiFi feature allows for easy status monitoring. The one downside is that the ice maker is a bit noisy throughout all of its cycles. Since we have set this up in the basement, the noise isn't an issue for us. It is not ideal as a kitchen countertop appliance.

Family love this unit, couple trade off's though

Hoski 3/16/2021

Well I'll start off my saying my wife and 6 year old are obsessed with chewing ice. My kitchen floor is constantly wet due to the fact my GE fridge spits out the ice at million miles per hour so it's hard not catching all of it. With this I knew we'd fix that problem and also the fear of my kid busting a tooth on harder ice. There is a couple other options when it comes to nugget ice but it's still limited. This obviously is probably the most expensive one but between all my Kitchen appliances being GE cafe, I wanted to keep it universal. Plus the fact this one is shorter then other ones so it fits under the standard cabinet height. As far as function, it does what it's meant to do. Add water and make ice. There is a reservoir inside that you fill with water and also the external one. It's highly recommended filling both options however pro tip, fill the external tank prior to the internal tank. If you do the internal first, it fills up the external base for the external tank And when you side the tank in, water shoots out everywhere. Ice quality I feel is good, it's soft and crunchy at the same time and absorbs the liquids nicely when used in drinks. Nuggets do not stick together so I feels that's also a good plus. My only two issues are A)The noise, it can be loud and louder than I was hoping it would be. For some reason it's has a good vibration noise if I don't have the external tank installed down the side. My kitchen is separated from the house as far as not being a open floor plan so thank goodness for that, I still can hear it from the next room over. It is louder than my GE dishwasher to give you a idea. B) Water.... it does use a lot of water, both tanks of water will be used in a couple days with minor use. It's an expected problem but I don't know if it melts quicker than expected but then again it reuses the melted ice. If you're able to attached an actual water line, go that route!

Family favorite

Makes nice chewable ice, like "Chic-fila" the kids say. Very handy. A bit noisy for the kitchen counter but reasonably quiet. Will get another for bar downstairs.

The best ice, just gotta treat her right.

Nugget ice is a cruel mistress but Opal makes it possible to have everything you need right at home. No more late night trips to sonic, or running around town looking for the beloved ice. I had the original but she quit on me, it was due to my own misgivings. The harsh water of central California could be to blame as well, but I could have tried harder. I swore when I replaced her with 2.0 that I would do everything I could to ensure a long life. Just ordered a five pack of filters and cleaning kits and the distilled water is on the way. Nugget ice is important in our house to restore peace and good function. Opal make that possible. Just treat her good and you'll hear the low hum of her pump from across the house like clock-work.Or you can even set a schedule using the app, as well as check on what stage of ice making shes in. 10 out of 10. RECOMMEND
