Edgestar Titanium Portable Ice Maker Review

If you’ve grown weary of trying to lever ice cubes out of little plastic trays from the freezer portion of your refrigerator, and hate having to leave your parties and family gatherings to buy bagged ice when you run out, a standalone ice maker like the Edgestar Titanium might be just the thing you’re looking for. It’s portable, so you can bring it out on your patio if you’re entertaining outside, or bring it with you on an RV or camper excursion. The low price of the Edgestar could actually save customers money by making it possible to avoid purchasing a refrigerator with a hard-piped icemaker installed, and use the Edgestar Titanium to supply their entire daily and party ice needs instead.

Reviews and Final Word
Purchasers of the Edgestar Titanium portable ice maker are overwhelmingly pleased with their purchase, with over half rating it at five stars, and over 70 percent rating it at least four stars. Some of the few users that express disappointment with the Edgestar Titanium don’t like that ice cubes in the bucket don’t stay frozen, but others point out that this is not a design flaw. The bucket is not a freezer, and the unit is designed to produce ice continuously, not make it and store it for the long term.

Reviewers used their Edgestar Titanium on their boats, RVs, campers, at getaway cabins, at church functions, and at large family functions without any problem. Reviewers not that the low current draw of this machine lets you use it with success even if you’re relying on a generator for electricity.
