EdgeStar 65 lb. Capacity Full Size Ice Maker with Filter Kit - Stainless Steel/Black
Whether you're constantly dealing with the hassle of refilling ice trays or your freezer's ice maker just can't seem to keep up with the demands of your home, the EdgeStar 65 lb. Capacity Full Size Ice Maker with Filter Kit (IB650717) is the perfect solution to all of your ice supply troubles. This full size ice maker is capable of producing up to a whopping 65 pounds of ice per day, eliminating the need to make expensive trips to the convenience store or gas station. The key is in the powerful air-cooled condenser, as the unit automatically operates, using the built-in compressor protection system to maintain the perfect temperature for making perfectly clear, bullet-shaped ice. And with a large storage capacity of 24 pounds, you can be sure that you'll always have an ample supply, even when accommodating the needs of large amounts of people. The sleek, professional-style stainless steel and black build add to its overall appearance, and also enable the ice maker to easily blend in with your existing kitchen or home bar decor. The front-exhausting ventilation system gives you increased power when choosing where you use or install the machine, as it does not require extra space around the unit for venting. As long as there's access to a water supply and a drain, you're all set.
The beauty of the EdgeStar 65 lb. Capacity Full Size Ice Maker with Filter Kit is that it comes with an AquaPure In-Line Ice Maker Filter Kit. This triple-action water filtration and treatment system effectively removes chlorine, dust, rust, and other contaminants that can cause bad taste and odors in your ice. Furthermore, as a preventative measure, the filter kit also protects the ice maker from lime scale build up which can negatively affect the machine's operation and build. As a fully-automatic appliance, the EdgeStar IB650SS monitors the storage levels and stops making ice when the bin is full. Once full, the ice maker switches to the cold preservation stage to keep the ice ready for use. It then automatically resumes making ice once any is removed. Additionally, the fan motor responds to the ambient temperature to create the perfect environment for ice whether the unit is in a hot or cold location. Included with this kit are an AquaPure In-Line Ice Maker Filter Kit, large ice scoop, and gravity drain line.

Ice Maker Basics
Types of Ice
Ice can be divided into several different colors and shapes. For example, clear ice is a restaurant-quality gourmet ice whose impurities have been removed (as well as the "cloudy" appearance of regular ice). This ice is completely odorless and tasteless, and this helps to make clear ice makers more expensive.
Also found in a variety of shapes, ice can be formed into cubes, cylinders, crescents, and more. Cylindrical ice is rounded and often has an indentation in the top and a rounded out bottom. Crescent ice cubes are similar to those made in refrigerator ice makers: long with flat tops and round bottoms. At present, crushed ice cannot be made in family-sized ice machines, but only in commercial machines.
Portable Ice Makers
The biggest benefit of a portable ice maker is that it does not require a permanent water line. Instead, they plug into a standard outlet and water must be poured into them to keep them running. These portable units make ice very quickly, but since they are not freezers, they will not keep the ice frozen. When the ice melts, the machine will recycle the water to make more ice. If you need a ton of ice made, you will need to empty these units frequently, as they only hold a small fraction of their full ice-making capacity.
Built-In Ice Makers
Built-in ice makers require a permanent water line, and therefore should be installed by a professional plumber. Some of these units also need a drain line to easily drain residual water from the ice makers. Built-in ice makers can store much more ice than a portable unit, and they can also keep the ice frozen longer.
Some built-in ice makers can be used outdoors, but only those that specifically say so. Otherwise, they will not be able to keep the ice frozen in high-temperature environments like the outdoors. Some ice makers meet ADA standards to be easily used by the elderly and disabled. Some built-in ice makers can accept custom door panels to blend in with existing cabinetry, and their descriptions will specify whether or not this is the case.
Storage of Ice
Most ice makers have a greater production capacity than storage capacity, which means that you can only store a fraction of what ice makers produce in a small amount of time. Keep in mind the storage and production capacities when deciding on which ice maker to buy.
