EdgeStar IB120SS Ice Maker Review

The EdgeStar IB120SS Ice Maker is a rather traditional design of home ice makers, which is built in and requires ventilation. This ice maker was first listed in 2008, and hence may look a little “old-school” for some who may prefer a more modern looking product. The machine also stops producing ice once the bin is full, which is a useful auto shut off mechanism to have.


The EdgeStar IB120SS Ice Maker has a 25 foot long 1/4″ water line connection included. It also has a reversible door for left or right hand swing. Requires ventilation at the side and front.


At 12 pounds per day, this ice maker is considered one of the lowest in output- it may not be sufficient for those who hold big parties regularly.

Consumer Ratings

Almost 100 customers have reviewed this product positively. While we agree it may be a good choice overall, it is rather bulky and has a more “traditional” function similar to a refrigerator or chiller.


Reasonably priced for its size, but the smallish output may be a concern for some.
