KBice Nugget Ice Maker Review









Our Rating



If you’re looking for the most user-friendly and practical nugget ice maker, then the KBice Self Dispensing Countertop Nugget Ice Maker is the best choice!

Users were extremely satisfied with the efficiency of the self-dispensing feature. Some people commented that it’s better for hygiëne, especially if you live with a lot of people.

In addition, people reasoned that the portable crushed ice maker is very easy to install and it has a clean “high quality feel” design. 

Similar to the other ice makers, the KBice nugget ice maker has its own cleaning function, which a lot of users áppreciate, as it saves a lot of time in maintenance.

The biggest downside of this model is that it’s relatively loud. In addition, some users claimed the dispenser tends to drip water from time to time, and refilling the machine with water can become tedious after some time.

However, considering the self-dispensing ice machine is so practical and easy to use, the general consensus among users was that it’s worth every penny.
