The product is easy to use and the ice maker is working well.

Nice - but I prefer my GE Profile nugget ice machine.

This is a nice machine, but my GE ice maker (in the same price range) is a superior machine. This Gevi does not have a light in the interior, like the GE Profile. Also, the GEVI cannot be connected to Bluetooth like the GE. I also like the fact that the GE has a separate side tank, which is a great feature, eliminating the need to fill with water as often. With the GE, you don't have to pull the ice bin out to get your ice; just open the door and take all the ice you need. Both machines feature a "Clean" mode, which is a nice feature. I do not empty the ice into the freezer; I just use it from the bin throughout the day. I do remove the bin when filling with water rather than pour water down the lid (which I find a strange way to fill an expensive machine!) I will say, though, that of all the nugget ice makers besides the GE Profile, this is the nicest. Had they incorporated a couple more things, this unit could have been top notch.

Newer Model, Still Great Ice!

I loved the earlier Gevi nugget ice maker model 1102, so I decided to get their upgraded model 1000. They both make great ice. First, I will discuss things which both ice makers have in common. Later in my review I will discuss what is different and improved in this newer model 1000.

While there are many nugget ice makers out there, please understand that if they are not easy to clean and drain, it will detract from your enjoyment of the machine. As with the original model, this Gevi is extremely easy to clean because it has a clean mode which circulates water through the machine without using the condenser. Equally important is the ease of draining the machine. There are two tubes which connect on the back, and it is very easy to disconnect them and drain the machine. To make ice, I fill the bottom with filtered water, all the way to the max line, which is the top of the water chamber. The water is easily added by pouring on the open lid. Unlike the first model, the water can be added without removing the ice bin. It flows down the lid, under the basket without touching the ice, into the water chamber below. It is easier to overfill than the first machine, so be careful, because the water chamber is set back and harder to see. As the water reaches the top, you will see it in a small overflow area. The machine makes ice by freezing water in small tubes, then pushing the frozen cylinder of ice up to the top of the machine, where it breaks small nuggets off the frozen cylinder of ice, and they fall into the bin. It begins to make ice within 10-15 minutes. The sound is not loud and is produced by a fan keeping the machine cool and is similar to the first machine. It will automatically shut off if the bin gets full, which it will also do if the water runs out. There is a UV sanitation light which further cleans the water before it is frozen. The ice tastes great. It is really nice to be able to leave the machine unattended for two hours or longer; it will just keep making ice. (One of my other machines needs to be unloaded quite often.) You can use the ice right out of the machine using the included scoop. However, I prefer to empty the ice bin into bags about every two hours, and refill the water. The bags go into the freezer. Please understand the ice will freeze together, but I have found a solution: After the bag is frozen, wrap it in a towel, and gently hit the bag with a hammer. The towel will protect the bag, and the shock to the ice will separate it back into beautiful frozen nuggets. You only have to do this once, as once the nuggets are separated they will remain this way in the freezer. When I am done with the machine, I always drain the water out by disconnecting the tubes in the back. This is very easy and keeps the machine clean.

Now I will highlight what is new and improved in this model. The machine itself is a different shape. While the first machine has a lid that opens at the top, this machine has a door which opens in the front and swings all the way down horizontally. You can pull the ice bin out and it will sit on the door. I would recommend that you empty the bin quickly (described above) and replace it, because while it is out, ice will continue to fall into the water chamber below. Do this quickly, and replace the bin, and you won’t lose any ice. Unlike the first machine, you can refill this one by pouring water on the lid (I like to elevate the lid a little bit from horizontal) while the bin is in the machine, as the lid has channels which guide the water into the chamber. Fill until you see the water begin to rise onto the overflow area. This is a nice improvement. Also improved is the consistency of the ice. In my opinion, the ice is made a little bit faster, and the size of the nuggets is a little bit more consistent than the first machine. Also, the machine is slightly quieter than the first one. All you hear is the fan. The first machine’s internal ice making sounds are more obvious. Otherwise, both machines make very enjoyable, great tasting nugget ice!

Great Nugget Ice!

I bought the Gevi Model 1102 several months ago and this machine makes great nugget ice. While there are many nugget ice makers out there, please understand that if they are not easy to clean and drain, it will detract from your enjoyment of the machine. The Gevi is extremely easy to clean, because it has a clean mode which circulates water through the machine without using the condenser. Equally important is the ease of draining the machine. There are two tubes which connect on the back, and it is very easy to disconnect them and drain the machine. To make ice, I fill the bottom with filtered water, all the way to the max line, replace the basket, and turn the machine on. The machine makes ice by freezing water in small tubes, then pushing the frozen cylinder of ice up to the top of the machine, where it breaks small nuggets off the frozen cylinder of ice, and they fall into the bin. It begins to make ice within 10-15 minutes. I can hear the ice squeaking a little bit as it is pushed and cut, as well as when it drops into the bin below. The sound level is no louder than my refrigerator. It will automatically shut off if the bin gets full, which it will also do if the water runs out. There is a UV sanitation light which further cleans the water before it is frozen. The ice tastes great. It is really nice to be able to leave the machine unattended for two hours; it will just keep making ice. (One of my other machines needs to be unloaded quite often.) You can use the ice right out of the machine using the included scoop. However, I prefer to empty the ice bin into bags about every two hours, and refill the water. The bags go into the freezer. Please understand the ice will freeze together, but I have found a solution: After the bag is frozen, wrap it in a towel, and gently hit the bag with a hammer. The towel will protect the bag, and the shock to the ice will separate it back into beautiful frozen nuggets. You only have to do this once, as once the nuggets are separated they will remain this way in the freezer. There is only one shortcoming to the process, for which I have an easy solution. When you remove the ice tray to put into bag or to add water to the machine, while the tray is out, nuggets of ice will continue to drop into the water tank below. While it is just a few nuggets, they are precious, and I don’t want to lose them. Therefore, I have put a small piece of dense packing foam (not styrofoam) measuring 2x3 inches and one-half inch thick into the slide where the ice comes out. There are little grooves built into the machine which will hold the foam perfectly in place and prevent the ice from dropping into the water tank. You can then empty the bucket into a bag, fill the water, and replace the tray. When you remove the foam a minute later, the nuggets that were temporarily trapped will just fall into the tray. Please do not leave the foam in the machine! When I am done with the machine, I always drain the water out by disconnecting the tubes in the back. This is very easy and keeps the machine clean.

Gevi Household Nugget Ice Machine GIMN-1102 (Black)

Gevi Nugget Ice Machine GIMN-1102 (Blue)

Love It!

This is my second counter top ice maker. This one is by far the more superior of the 2. I did a lot of research and knew I wanted something quieter than the first one but I definitely wanted a nugget ice machine. After reading several reviews and checking several web sites. I chose this nugget machine...I LOVE IT! Makes much more ice, so quite we forget it's on!

Amazing

I was so excited to get “nugget” ice… and I love that I don’t have to leave my home to go get a bag of chick-fil-a ice now! So easy to use and love that it has the self cleaning function! Definitely game changer!

Gevi nugget ice cube user

I’ve always wanted a machine that made those type ice cubes. Now I have one and it is well worth it. The machine is quiet and makes more ice than my freezer and better tasting too. I will recommend this machine to everyone I talk to that’s how impressed I am of the technology.

Perfect soft chewy ice every time

This product is amazing. It provides exactly what you'd hope: the best ice for drinks and digestive issues. Ours was damaged in shipping and caused it to start to whine terribly during production of ice. I contacted the seller (Ed) and not only did he answer all of my questions, he sent a new unit out to replace the old one with the caveat that I use the new box to return the old product since the original box had to be tossed due to its previous damage. Seriously amazing customer service and just good people. Worth every penny.

Perfect ice

This ice maker is everything I hoped it would be and more. It makes the perfect ice and I no longer have to make trips to sonic. The ice bin holds twice the amount of my friend’s GE Opal and keeps it cold all day. The ice is slow melting, but also light and soft which is both perfect for crunching and keeping my drinks cold for a long time. I cannot recommend enough.

5 STARS

AS GOOD AS THE REVIEWS SAY THEY ARE. GET ONE.

Obsessed with this quiet, delicious ice maker. Worth every penny.

Quiet, easy to use and set up. Very fast. The ice is so crunchy and satisfying!

Great Nugget ice maker!

Makes ice just like that Favorite drive restaurant!!??

Great Ice Maker

I choose this model because it was one of the highest rated of the nugget ice makers. Unfortunately, it leaked badly after the first batch. I emailed back and forth with the GEVI repairperson to see if it was a simple fix, and she recommended I simply exchange it through Amazon. Amazon was wonderful. They arranged for UPS to pick it up at my door, and two days later I had a replacement. It is a great ice maker and even though I had a hiccup in the beginning, I still highly recommend this product. It's relatively quiet and I love the nugget ice.

Ice is delicious and just right

Everyting is great

Best nugget ice!!

Works great, self cleaning, and makes great nugget ice.

YOU NEED THIS MACHINE IF YOU WANT NUGGET ICE IN YOUR LIFE!!!

If your sick of running to sonic or any local establishment to find that yum yum ice… We'll stop hunting your local establishment… get yourself this nugget ice machine! Hands down the best investment our household has made!

Works great

It would be nice if the bin area where the ice is dropped were cooled so it didn't melt to quickly. Otherwise it's great so far. Ice is the size we like and it's super simple to use.

Perfect

I love this machine. its easy to use and clean.

Great Ice Maker

Easy to operate, makes good ice, fast.

Good size on counter

It is getting hot and needed this guy for summer. Perfect size for my counter and affordable price. It was not good to mix all meat and ice, ice cream, fruits in one freezer. So I purchased ice maker, chest freezer to separate everything. I happy that found this ice maker which is easy to use and make ice fast and perfect fit on the counter and match my other appliances. But little bit noisy when making ice so consider the time to make ice.

Excellent company to work with!

I originally had an Opal nugget ice maker that only lasted for not quite 2 years. When I started my search for a new machine I did a lot of research and read all of the comments before I settled on the Gevi Nugget ice maker. I do not regret my decision at all! Besides being very easy to set up and understand the instructions, it makes ice faster than my Opal ever did, but probably the most important thing about this machine is the customer service department at Gevi. When I first got the machine I wrote a quick review about pretty much what I said here as well, but I also casually mentioned that when I unloaded the machine, there was some small damage in the lower rear corner that probably happened during shipping and probably won't affect anything. Well, apparently the awesome people at Gevi read my comment and sent me a $21.80 refund for the slight damage done in shipping. That is one awesome company!! Its also a better machine than the Opal ever was! I highly recommend this nugget ice machine, and this is coming from someone who is addicted to chewable nugget ice!!

Best at-home ice machine for two

This is the best at-home ice machine I've bought, and my husband and I have purchased two other models that we didn't like as much as this one. It's HUGE so you need to have a lot of counter space for it, and it needs a few inches of clearance on all sides for proper ventilation. The massive size is completely worth it to always have “Sonic ice” on hand. We've had it for a few weeks and we have yet to run out of ice, even using it to refill our water bottles all day every day. It's easy to use once you get it set up, and the instructions are easy to follow. If you're still searching for the perfect ice maker, you've found it. You won't regret this purchase.

Ice Maker is Amazing!!!

I love this ice maker you just fill it to the line with water and it gets to work.. Very easy to clean just detach the tubes in the back and the water pours right out. Never had a better ice maker ever!!!
