EdgeStar 65 lb. Capacity Full Size Ice Maker with Filter Kit - Stainless Steel/Black
Whether you're constantly dealing with the hassle of refilling ice trays or your freezer's ice maker just can't seem to keep up with the demands of your home, the EdgeStar 65 lb. Capacity Full Size Ice Maker with Filter Kit (IB650717) is the perfect solution to all of your ice supply troubles. This full size ice maker is capable of producing up to a whopping 65 pounds of ice per day, eliminating the need to make expensive trips to the convenience store or gas station. The key is in the powerful air-cooled condenser, as the unit automatically operates, using the built-in compressor protection system to maintain the perfect temperature for making perfectly clear, bullet-shaped ice. And with a large storage capacity of 24 pounds, you can be sure that you'll always have an ample supply, even when accommodating the needs of large amounts of people. The sleek, professional-style stainless steel and black build add to its overall appearance, and also enable the ice maker to easily blend in with your existing kitchen or home bar decor. The front-exhausting ventilation system gives you increased power when choosing where you use or install the machine, as it does not require extra space around the unit for venting. As long as there's access to a water supply and a drain, you're all set.
The beauty of the EdgeStar 65 lb. Capacity Full Size Ice Maker with Filter Kit is that it comes with an AquaPure In-Line Ice Maker Filter Kit. This triple-action water filtration and treatment system effectively removes chlorine, dust, rust, and other contaminants that can cause bad taste and odors in your ice. Furthermore, as a preventative measure, the filter kit also protects the ice maker from lime scale build up which can negatively affect the machine's operation and build. As a fully-automatic appliance, the EdgeStar IB650SS monitors the storage levels and stops making ice when the bin is full. Once full, the ice maker switches to the cold preservation stage to keep the ice ready for use. It then automatically resumes making ice once any is removed. Additionally, the fan motor responds to the ambient temperature to create the perfect environment for ice whether the unit is in a hot or cold location. Included with this kit are an AquaPure In-Line Ice Maker Filter Kit, large ice scoop, and gravity drain line.

Do all ice makers produce the same type of ice?
No, there are several varieties of ice shapes and consistencies depending on which unit you purchase. Clear ice is restaurant-quality, gourmet ice whose impurities have been removed so the cubes do not have the "cloudy" appearance of regular ice. This ice is completely odorless and tasteless, however, clear ice makers are usually more expensive. Ice may be produced in a variety of shapes, including actual cubes, cylinders, shot glass and crescents. Cylindrical ice is rounded and often has an indentation in the top and a rounded out bottom. Crescent ice cubes are similar to what many ice makers in refrigerators make, long with flat tops and round bottoms and resemble the shape of a crescent moon. Ice may also be produced in whole cubes, crushed or flake style.
Do you offer a built-in ice maker that will produce crushed or flake style ice?
Since crushed and flake style ice is typically found in commercial settings such as restaurants and hospitals you would need to purchase a commercial grade machine. We do offer commercial grade machines on our website that produce crushed and flake style ice but they are typically in a much higher price range compared to the average consumer model. We suggest purchasing one of the electric ice crushers offered on our website in order to achieve the same result at a much more affordable price point.
How much ice will the average consumer built-in ice maker produce?
Production amounts vary greatly depending on which machine you purchase. Please check the specifications section of the ice maker you are interested in on our website as the production and storage capacities should be clearly listed. The majority of built-in ice makers offered today are capable of producing far more ice in a 24 hour period than they are able to store.
Do all ice makers require a drain?
The vast majority of consumer oriented built-in ice makers do not offer a refrigerated storage bin. At some point the ice produced will melt and the resulting water may need to be drained from the machine. The most common way to achieve this goal is to establish a permanent gravity drain line. The gravity drain line will exit the back of the machine and carry the water to a nearby drain located below the ice maker. If your drain location is not below the machine, or is located several feet away, you may need to purchase an additional condensate pump to transport the drainage. Some ice makers will offer a built in condensate pump if you prefer to have the pump included within the body of the unit. If you do not have access to a drain and are unable to establish a permanent drain line for your ice maker you may need to periodically manually drain the water from the machine.
Are built-in ice makers designed for outdoor use?
If you wish to install an ice maker outdoors you should purchase a unit that includes an “outdoor use” designation from the manufacturer. An ice maker designed for outdoor use will include additional insulation throughout the unit as well as better shielding of the electronic components from the elements. The additional insulation will allow the unit to produce ice without overworking the internal compressor as the unit will be located in what is typically a warmer outdoor environment. You will still need to allow for drainage of the unit as you would with an indoor model. Should you choose to install an indoor ice maker in an outdoor environment you run the risk of shortening the unit’s overall lifespan as the internal compressor will be required to overcompensate for the lack of additional insulation. You will also run the risk of invalidating the warranty for your unit since indoor rated models are not designed for outdoor use.
