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.

DO NOT PURCHASE - Waste of your money

angdoss 5/10/2022

Do not buy!!!! I recieved a GE Opal Ice Machine as a Christmas Gift in December 2020. It has already stopped working correctly. For the initial cost of this device, I would have expected it to last a lot longer than 2 years. Forget any customer service! I completely understand that "it only has a 1 year warranty" but suggestions as to where to purchase parts or take the device to be repaired would have been nice. I will say that while it worked we really enjoyed it, but WOW for the cost of the machine that was some very expensive ice for the short time that it worked!!!!

Love crushed ice

pbh51 5/9/2022

Excellent product, recommended by a friend that has had one for several months. Makes plenty of ice everyday. Simple to install, only downfall would be size(takes up counter space). Heavy 44 lbs, if you have to move it to clean every few months.

Great for what it is

Sallypants27 4/30/2022

I'd love to see a bigger bin, potentially holding up to 5 lbs. But as a counter top model, it's great for what it is. Has quick ice production and glad it has a self recycling water system to make maintenance easy.

More Frustrated in Oklahoma

More Frustrated 4/24/2022

I really want a nugget ice machine. But, I took back my third unit back to try for a fourth. One last try. I want to say that BEST BUY has been great on returns. I highly recommend buying from them, rather than online. Also, I love the ice. It is soft and easy to chew. But, I am starting to think that the units shipped to Best Buy, were just a bad bunch. They all start defrosting, way too often and melt the ice before the bin gets full. I started my new machine yesterday afternoon about 4:00. By 6:00, the bin was about half full and it started the defrost cycle. It ran all night and this morning the bin was about 3/4 full. I am going to give it a day or 2 and see if it rights itself. If not, I will return for refund. Normally, GE is a much higher quality product than other brands and I am prone to pay more for a better product. I am a little perplexed how the GE Opal 2.0 gets a lot of 5's, and yet I am on my 4th one which is showing signs of not working as promised. My brother has one and loves it (but it is last years Opal - not 2.0). I have done everything as requested as far as cleaning, etc. I have moved the machine from place to place to assure air circulation was good. GE should look into the shipment and see if they are bad and then recall or something. I am now "More Frustrated in Oklahoma". I would love for someone from GE to contact me.

azcarz 4/19/2022

Worst app ever written. You'd think for the price of the unit they might have invested more than $2 to create a working app. I would definitely have bought a different brand had i known this. Might still just get rid of it anyway

Great item -- until it wasn't

Texas ice addict 4/1/2022

Bought this in early 2021, made absolutely great ice and our whole family was addicted to it. Then literally 30 days after the warranty expires, it breaks. Now it just runs hot and recirculates hot water without freezing anything. Sadly this seems consistent with a number of other review and is disappointing for such an expensive item. If you do take the plunge, at minimum get the extended warranty.

Love it while it worked!

Seth72 2/28/2022

We loved our ice maker while it worked! Recommended it to everyone who visited. But it started to slow down and then stopped making ice entirely 11 days after our 1-year warranty expired. Cleaned it nearly weekly as recommended. Wish something this expensive lasted longer than one year but reading the reviews, it appears it does not. I expected more from GE but I guess things aren't made like they used to be.

Disappointment - after one year problems

SCJFLA 2/24/2022

I WAS SO in love with this ice maker. The ice machine was Christmas present from my husband in Dec 2020. We have ROO filtered water with a chiller tank that we use to fill the reservoir tank. We clean it every 2 months as recommended. The bam just last week little to no ice production. So we cleaned it again, with the same result. We are trying one last time and if not it was a really expensive item that lasted a year and is nothing more than a boat anchor. I cannot say how truly upset and disappointed I am. I wish my husband had read the 6 other reviews in which they had the same problem. All other good reviews are incentivized so I presume they were well compensated to say great things. And for as far as the support I have tried to call but cannot get through on the 800 # after almost 45 minutes.

So So

Jmiller87 2/18/2022

I've had the first generation for over a year now. We've only run bottled water through it and clean it with Descaler once a month. The first four or five months no issues whatsoever. Then bam!!! No ice or low ice problem. Start looking at everything and it need x amounts of space open all around it to work properly. No big deal. Then after a year of use we're getting melting ice production and black flecks in the ice. Check the bottom tray and there's black fleck in the bottom of the return tray also. So we do what they asked and inspect the internals. The water tray at the top back right of the machine had a layer of black slime on everything and it was like that through all the internal hoses of the machine. I call customer support, they approved a replacement BUT they want $300 to hold onto while they fix their machine and they wanna hold that for at least 4 weeks because they're behind schedule with all of their repairs they have to do on these machines. Nope not giving you $300 to hold onto while you fix your crap ice maker because I wouldn't steal one of these if you paid me to! I will be giving a second review after I wait the 5+ days to receive the box to return my broken one, wait the 4+ weeks for them to send the replacement and get and try out the new unit. I don't feel like this unit and their customer support is worth the price you're gonna pay for this equipment and that's sad because my wife and her sister love when this unit actually works!

zelin717 2/2/2022

This WAS a great product. But, soon as I hit the 1 year time line it stopped making ice. I have taken such great care of my ice maker because it was a gift and I knew how much it cost. I don't think an appliance should stop after 1 year. Especially at this price. Very disappointed.

Makes amazing while it lasts

LegoZ 1/7/2022

Not sure if I just got a bad one there are several other videos of this icemaker having issues. We purchased this unit on November 10 of 2020 and Ed been using it since then we cleaned it right before leaving on vacation and left it open and off when we were gone for two weeks we came back and said the unit back up it ran and worked great for a day and then started making a horrible scraping and grinding noise. We are working with Amazon to get the unit replaced but it's looking like there's almost a month awake before we'll get the replacement machine. I did reach out to warranty services as suggested in the other review where they had issues and I am waiting her back. When working this unit makes amazing ice and is the replacement unit works well I will update this review.

Nice ice maker but button feature not the best

JessPhilly 11/28/2021

I set up ice machine and have been using it a lot, makes great ice. Bought this one rather than 2.0 because of the size and my tiny kitchen. But the button is faulty. It dims so it works but the one touch turn off doesn't work. Also when it runs out of water it makes loud noise and never auto shut off like it says it will in manual. I ordered a replacement from the store I bought it but really hope this isn't a reoccurring problem!

DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE

JayHove 11/15/2021

Do not waste your money on this machine. While it is a great ice maker and we love the ice it made, it dies after about a year. You would think a machine that cost $600 would last longer than a year. We took great care of our machine cleaned it regularly and only used distilled water in it as recommended yet it only lasted a little over a year. You are better off just going to sonic and buying a bag of ice to keep in your freezer than buying this machine.

Lyss220 11/11/2021

Unfortunately just after a year of purchasing this ice maker, it has died. We absolutely loved it (even though it is a bit loud) and sad to see it go especially after spending so much money on it. I wouldn't recommend wasting your money on this product unless they have a better warranty on it because 1 year is not enough!

JHBVD 10/19/2021

Awesome machine makes the "good ice" haha takes a little bit of time to start making the ice but once it does it makes a lot of ice. The only thing I didn't like was that it does not keep the ice it is constantly melting the ice and remaking it and the draw that the ice gets foggy.

Amazing ice maker!

Juney1 10/11/2021

So... I didn't realize what I'd been missing my entire life! I love the ice in sodas from certain restaurants (you know, the kind of ice that keeps the drink cool, doesn't melt quickly, and has a soft gentle crunchy texture that doesn't hurt your teeth), but I didn't know there was anything that could make this kind of ice at home! This ice maker makes that kind of ice! In fact, I'd say it's even better because I use clean, filtered water, so I know exactly what is going into my ice machine. It's a pretty compact design and looks great on my counter. This is the king of all ice makers!

Great for parties

Thabeast395 9/27/2021

I would like to start by saying this thing is great for parties or a get together. I have some pros and cons of my own opinion. The pros are it runs ice fairly quickly and it's the best ice I've ever had. The recycle feature is great since it doesn't keep the ice frozen in the bin. The cons are minimal as in it needs deep cleaning before use and quite often which can be time consuming. The other being that it's simply an ice maker, so it doesn't keep the ice frozen after it is made. Overall it's a great machine and works as it should every time.

Smart!

Sahark 9/21/2021

My life has totally changed with this counter top nugget ice maker, Now I do not have to worry about ice, I don't have to go to store and buy ice, It is super easy to put on my counter, easy to move, take less space ,super easy to install, it's a very smart ice maker that makes my kitchen or refrigerator room adorable. A portable ice maker is great for any party. No water hookup required, just plug it into any 120v grounded (standard) electrical outlet and fill the reservoir with water. Within only 20 minutes, I enjoy soft and crunchy ice. The Opal produces 24 lbs. of ice per day, and the bin holds 3 lbs. This is a very decent choice to get this gadget and make your own Ice. I am very satisfied and would highly recommend it.

Love this ice machine

Smosts 9/21/2021

This machine is fantastic. It is super fast and true to its word, within 20 minutes it starts to drop ice. The ice is small nuggets that are perfect for putting in things or eating. Having the side tank is absolutely amazing because the machine continuously pulls until the bin where the ice is stored is full. If there is no water, the machine does make a loud sucking noise seeking water. It also does not have a cooling element so the ice does not stay chilled. You have to take it out of the machine and put it in the freezer or a cooler or else it will melt. The instruction manual is also a little confusing. It's a little vague so it's a bit of trial and error.

Best ice maker ever

krisseyv92 9/20/2021

I am in love with this ice maker! I never knew I could get my favorite soft pellet ice at home until I found the GE Opal Nugget Ice Maker. Set up was super easy, and I liked how the instructions show you how to clean out the machine. The side tank is great, so I don't have to change out the water so much. The machine is a little noisy when first starting up, but in general, it's pretty quiet. My only complaint is that the drawer of the ice machine is not on a rail so when you pull it out, you have to be careful not to pull out the whole thing and spill ice everywhere. Overall, I love this product and I highly recommend to anyone who craves that soft drink nugget ice!

GamingGoddess87 9/20/2021

This GE Profile Opal Nugget Ice Maker with Side Tank is fabulous! Stainless steel is very nice looking. It is easy to use and maintain. They recommend cleaning the tank and main machine once a week for health purposes. From start to a full ice bin took about 3-4 hours. Comes with a handy scoop. Wish there was a place to keep the scoop. If you keep it in the ice bin it gets covered. So we let it sit out on the drip tray. Not too noisy. Really loving this machine!

Amazing

jbubman 9/20/2021

This ice maker is seriously a dream. I've had other counter-top ice makers in the past but they were difficult to clean and always leaked. The set up of the Opal was very easy and the cleaning/care is very straight-forward. The Opal produces ice around 15 minutes after being turned on but takes around 3-4 hours to fully fill up the bin. The side tank has a magnet that allows it to be docked on either the right or left-hand side of the Opal depending on user preference. The ice itself is wonderful, perfect chewable ice. One thing to note is that it does put out a significant amount of heat while making ice but cools down when not in an ice-making cycle. Highly recommend.

Exactly what I was looking for

Nannette66 9/17/2021

I needed a portable Ice machine for my basement kitchen bar area. Never found anything I liked until this. I love this machine. It is perfect for what I need. It makes perfect nugget Ice. It's quiet, you can hear a hum when its making the ice, but nothing that is annoying or loud. Has a cool LED button that comes on when it's making ice. The water tank is magnetic so it sticks to the side of the ice maker. It has a self clean mode, a drip try to catch melted ice and water. It takes about 15 minutes for it to make ice, and it stops once the bin is full but will sense when it is low and , as long as you keep water in the tank, it will make ice when it gets low. It's all self contained so you can take it anywhere. It weighs about 46 lbs. The look of this machine is awesome. Sleek and matches with any décor. So happy with this.

Tlaw ny 9/17/2021

This ice maker makes a good amount ice super quick. It's great for entertaining. The ice nuggets are good to chill drinks or if you have recipes that require a little munch to them. It makes enough for a small party so the machine is a little on the larger side, but it's worth it. It's also a bit on the heavier side but it's sturdy and durable. Add the fact that it has nice polished finish and it really adds a modern look to your countertop. Love it.

Perfect for our needs

DaniPea 9/15/2021

Our current refrigerator doesn't make alot of ice and when it does its clunky and stuck together. We also didn't want to sacrifice any freezer room by buying ice bags and storing it . This ice maker works out perfect perfect us .i was super impressed with its packaging, it had actual board inserts inside the box to protect it ,impressive. It's a large capacity ice maker for sure. It looks great with the stainless steel finish and matches our other appliances. We have an airbnb and ice is something every single group uses as well as us so we needed to have a quality machine that can make ice and the nugget type is versatile it worked out perfect . This produces a ton of ice very quickly and it's that tasty little nugget ice you can crunch on . Love it

The best ice machine!

Ard2021 9/15/2021

What a cool addition to our kitchen! The set up was super simple with easy to follow instructions. My family loves this ice maker and has been using it nonstop since we plugged it in. It takes up a little more counter space than I had imagined but well worth it! It makes good soft ice. Once you scoop some out, it immediately starts making more. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great ice maker.

Great Ice Maker

SelfMadeMike 9/15/2021

This is my second GE Opal Nugget Ice Maker. I wanted one for the downstairs bar as well as the kitchen. Goes to show how much I love it. I appreciate that it's stainless steel and fits right in with the other appliances. It's super easy to get from box to counter to making ice. I haven't used the cleaning feature yet, but I can tell you from my other GE Opal ice maker that it's easy to do. I'm as happy with this one as I was with my first.

Perfect chewable ice nuggets

Kevin in Austin 9/15/2021

We have been using the GE Ice Maker for a couple of weeks. It was bigger and heavier than I expected but we didn't have any problems unpacking it and finding a spot for it on the counter next to our fridge. The assembly is easy and the instructions provided are clear, include pictures and reference parts that are labeled to avoid confusion. The ice maker comes in two parts - the ice maker with the bin and a water tank that attaches to either side of the ice maker using magnets. It's easy to refill the water tank by simply lifting it out of the base, turning it upwards to unscrew the nozzle and fill it up to the top. It will consume water quickly if you are using the ice. The best part is the ice itself. It's the little chewable ice nuggets that are so enjoyable from some of our favorite fast food places. If you like that kind of ice, I recommend the GE Ice Maker.

Omg, I love this ice maker

lmhilly 9/14/2021

I love eating ice. It was easy to use. The instruction were good to follow. It comes with a side tanks for more water to make ice. I plugged it in and had ice cubes within a half hour. The ice cubes tasted really, really good. I like that it recycles the water from the melted ice cubes and makes more ice cubes. The ice cubes were small and soft and good. If you love ice and are looking for an ice maker, buy this!!!

Great

Allman 9/13/2021

This is by far the best ice maker I've owned! I have had a few! Love the size of the ice and the fact that it holds a lot before you have to empty it! It has drain hoses on it for easy cleaning! I like that you can have the storage tank on the side to help with refilling it! Comes with a drip tray so it doesn't leave a mess for you to clean up! Has a switch on the back for cleaning/ice. Very convenient to get to. Over all there is nothing I don't like about this machine.

Best counter ice machine ever!

Brighteyed22 9/13/2021

I absolutely love my ice machine. It makes ice so fast that you'll have ice in no time to use for drinks or even simply chewing on. Instructions and set up were a breeze. Directions were very clear. It's almost addicting watching the ice drop in such a short time. It's no overly loud making the ice but has a fan type sound. You only hear it when it's actually making ice. I love that it's so much easier use this kind of ice in my insulated water bottle because the ice is small enough to slide right in. The ice box has drain holes which is very helpful for any ice that melts and the water drains back into the water fill area. It's not a freezer so the ice can still melt over time if it sits in their too long. I love that the side take is magnetic and sticks to the side of the ice machine to lessen the risk of it moving around. I haven't had to use the side tank yet as I'm still learning how much ice our household goes through. Also, just a FYI, keep the sides of the ice machine away from walls. I originally had it too close the wall and the heat from making ice didn't release well and actually would melt my ice, oops. But it's all good now that I pulled it away from the wall. The vents are on the sides. But I am very happy to have this in our home. The only thing I wish was different is having the option to turn off the led light that lights up the box.

Love this ice!

KUgirl 9/12/2021

This product makes amazing ice!  The set up and cleaning process takes some time, but the ice is definitely worth it.  Instructions were clear and easy to follow.  Thought it would take less time to fill the entire ice bin.  Great for everyday use as well as for small parties.  It makes some noise when making ice which is to be expected.  We love this ice!

Ice Maker Minus the Freezer

LynnLan 9/10/2021

Let's start off with a positive note, this whole concept is amazing! Although there are always ways to make a product better, let's start with what makes this Nugget Ice Maker great! Pros: - it makes delicious ice, even my 6 yr old could crunch easily! - you do not need a water line to your sink or filter, because of the included water canister on the side. - contains LED light inside ice bucket for night time scoops! You don't have to turn on your lights just to get ice! - Set up is fairly easy if you watch a YouTube video (see con below). - it really starts making the ice nuggets in a very short amount of time. - it has ventilation on both sides , very necessary for this type of product! (See con below) - the ice box comes out at an angle and machine has a drip try so it's easy to scoop out the ice with the included scooper. - it's great that once ice melts from the bottom , that water is filtered back to make ice again. It doesn't bother me that it does maintain the ice frozen. But if you're looking for a ice maker that keeps the ice frozen, this may not be for you. Cons: -if you're picking up this item at a store, make sure you have help… IT'S HEAVY! - Beware of the packaging, as it's helpful due to the weight but if the straps come off while carrying, it can be very dangerous. - the instructions are not great. Had to look up videos on how to set it up, but the ice maker worked well. - the side water canister was dripping from the top once it was flipped into the side compartment. Not sure if I just got a faulty canister. - the ice maker get very hot on one side (right) so you must make sure you have space for it to allow for air flow for ventilation. I don't currently have enough space for this on my kitchen counter, which is where I had intended to keep it. Going to bring it down to the family room , eventually. To heavy to move around easily. To end on a positive note, I've had this ice maker on only a couple of hrs within the last couple of days and after I turn off the machine for the night, I noticed that there is still frozen ice in the ice bucket. This is amazing, considering it does not contain a freezer to keep ice frozen.

Restaurant ice at home

Emily Walz 9/9/2021

Ok everyone needs to stop what they are doing and read this review. Gone are the days of the instant pot and air fryer, this is the new holy grail of kitchen appliances, the nugget ice maker. I love ice. Like really love ice. Extra ice in all my drinks and love a slushy margarita. This makes the good chewable ice like you get from a fountain drink machine. It comes with an owners manual as well as quick start instructions that were very clear and easy to follow. I had it cleaned out and set up on my wet bar within 15 minutes. It has a built in cleaning function which is super handy, and after that I got started making my first batch. Within 15 minutes it was dropping ice nuggets into the holding container and after 2 hours it was over half full. It has an additional water reservoir that can be used on either side and magnetizes to the side of the machine. It is not necessary though, if you are lacking space, and water can be added directly into the machine. As far as the noise level, it makes a humming noise, similar to if you keep your freezer door open and it kicks on an extra notch. Nothing unpleasant or overbearing. Important to note, this is not a freezer and will not keep the ice frozen for long periods of time once the machine is off, but my favorite thing about this is that once the ice melts, it goes right back in the water holder to be recycled and be re-made back into ice! The machine also provides a small ice scoop so you don't need to go out and buy one. Lastly, this is a big machine. It's definitely portable and can be moved around and placed wherever you need it, but it's about as easy to tote around as a microwave would be. I would recommend having a permanent place to keep this to avoid that. Overall, this is a great product and I look forward to using it regularly and when hosting parties!

LindseyK 9/8/2021

I couldn't set this up quick enough! So glad I got this! It has that perfect ice. You know what I'm talking about. That small, crunchy ice that you have to search forever to find! It's not incredibly loud, and fits nice in the corner on my counter. Love it already!!
