After using a few ice cubes, we left some in the reservoir. When those ice cubes started melting, to our surprise, the melted water got collected in its reservoir again, and it got reused for making ice. Due to this water reusability, this Crownful 26 pounds ice maker became a perfect choice for us. We were happy to see that the melted water does not get wasted and can be automatically reused.
Keeping this countertop ice maker machine clean was the one thing that troubled us since it was recommended to clean once a week for better efficiency. But it made us feel relaxed when we saw that its cleaning process is not at all stressful. We could easily wipe with a clean and soft damp cloth to remove any stains.
Another advantage of Crownful table top ice maker that it offers is smooth working without making any noise.
