Many ice makers that we have examined did not have a proper window to view the ice inside them. So, it was a relief to see a large see-through window in Red countertop ice maker. It gives you a good view of the ice cubes so that you can know when your cubes are ready to be removed.

No Indicator To Fill Water
One thing that we wished this Ice Maker had is an indicator to tell us when we need to add water in its bin. We constantly had to keep looking to check whether it needed more water or not. Instead of doing that, we think it would have been better if there was a red light to indicate that.
