The Whynter UIM-155 Ice Maker is a compact, sturdy home ice maker designed to fit into most kitchens. It has a built-in form with external water line, so that you would not need to keep running to the tap. What stood out to us was the 6 pounds of ice storage which is rare for ice makers at this price range.
This home ice maker comes with a 9 foot 1/4-inch, food grade water line connection. The product does not have a drain but has an auto shut off mechanism that kicks in when the ice bin is full. Produces crescent shaped ice.
At 12 pounds per day, this unit’s output is somewhat lesser than most of its rivals. However, what it lacks in output, it makes up for in its external water line connection, as well as a good storage capacity (see below).
The Whynter UIM-155 Ice Maker has an impressive storage of 6 pounds of ice- this means you do not need to store it separately unlike most ice makers in the market.
