We don’t have an ice maker in our refrigerator. The reason we don’t is that our kitchen wasn’t set up for one. So rather than run the pipes needed we made do without. Now with the holidays I wanted to make ice rather than buy it. Thanks to the NewAir ClearIce40 Countertop Clear Ice Maker we are able to do just that.
You may be more familiar with NewAir than you think. They are a premier provider of custom built and luxury home appliances that I am certain you have most likely seen if not used in the past.

Their products are not only stylish but also energy efficient and eco-friendly. My sister-in-law has one of their wine coolers and let me tell you she loves it. She said she couldn’t live without it.
We received the NewAir ClearIce40 Countertop Clear Ice Maker to review and I have to tell you I had the hardest time deciding where to put this. I have no idea why! It’s not like we have a ton of room but I ended up putting it on the counter. I will tell you that it is a little heavy or at least it was for me. I am also like 5 feet tall (with the bones of an eighty year old) and had to stand on a step stool to place it on the counter without hurting myself. That could have been my issue. Anyway, once I got it up there I put some water in and waited for the ice.
It came with a little basket and scoop. The scoop is perfect for when you need a cup of ice but the you can take the whole basket out when you need a pitcher of ice. I love that because the kids can get their own ice when they want it.
It took around thirty minutes for us to have ice. I used bottled water since we don’t drink the water from our facet. It tastes funny sometimes and the EPA has been out here. It’s from old pipes in the neighborhood and the county hasn’t updated them yet. When the first pieces of ice fell it scared the bejesus out of me. I hadn’t been expecting it really and got startled.
As you can see we got some great ice and are loving having this machine. We no longer have to buy ice and bring it home. In the winter months that is not so bad but it can get above a hundred here in the summer. Ice is melted before we ever make it home most of the time. Also when we go on picnics or hiking I can fill the little cooler from our NewAir ClearIce40 Countertop Clear Ice Maker rather than having to go into to town only to turn around and head back this way to get to the trails.
