NewAir AI150SS Ice Maker Review and Giveaway!

newair-logo-256x100NewAir has been a company I have been familiar with since I first became a homeowner.  NewAir is the premier provider of appliances built to fit your home.

Recently we received the  NewAir AI150SS Ice Maker which is a portable ice maker that makes 24 pounds of ice daily. This portable ice maker has been so useful, as we added in a home wet bar in our basement. While a wet bar is great, there was no way to get ice to the drinks, other than going upstairs and taking the ice from the freezer. This inevitably added to spills and not enough ice being brought down in one trip. With the  NewAir AI150SS Ice Maker, I can put the ice maker on my countertop or below on my shelves, to make ice right there.  The ice drawer opens on the front so if you want to hide it, you can put it like I do under your cupboards. Long gone are the days when I have to rely on my refrigerator to make ice.

portable ice makerThis ice maker features a sleek design, which takes up hardly any counter space. Set up of the ice maker is virtually seamless and in no time at all, I had ice being made in my basement. Of what I read, this is one of the smallest portable ice makers on the market, but one that will make a great deal of ice. The dimensions of this ice maker are  only 13.5 inches long and 12 inches tall, so it will fit anywhere you need it – kitchen, office break room, office, bar, living room, etc. What could be better!

The NewAir AI-150SS starts making ice the minute you turn it on and produces fresh ice in as little as 10 minutes.  To use the ice maker once you have it on your counter, simply  plug it in, add water with the included cup, and press the button to start making ice! LED indicators light up to tell you when to empty the ice bin or add more water. That is it! Pretty neat if I must say so myself! I can get easily confused with appliances but the NewAir A1-150SS makes it so easy to use with the easy one button control and no installation process.

I love using my NewAir A1-150SS to make ice. 24 pounds of ice a day assures me that I will never run out. I am also a huge fan of being able to have the push out draw to get the ice, once I make it. With other ice makers I have to bend high and low to try to get the ice out. I never have this problem because of the front pull-out draw. This ice maker is portable so with your summer barbecues coming up, simply unplug it and bring it to a friends house. Then turn it on and in no time at all, that house with have ice. Long gone are the days where you have to ask a friend to go out and get a bucket of ice. This ice maker will do it all for you! Take it on vacations, picnics and backyard barbecues. You’ll never run out of ice again!

    My daughter sleeps on ice packs. We live in Texas where it is over 100 degrees from May to October so ice melts quickly. She is up several times a night changing out the ice. This would be so helpful for her. She could put it in her room and also take it with her when she travels!

  57. ten b says

    While our frig ice maker is broken, if I won this ice maker, I would give it to the teacher’s at the kids’ elementary school. Their break room has a frig, but the county wouldn’t pay for an ice maker, and won’t let the teachers or PTA buy an ice maker and have it installed.

  58. Bias says

    Oh my goodness do *I* want to win this! Our refrigerator needed some work… because the motor hasn’t been opening the fan between the fridge and freezer. Anyway, while it was undergoing repairs, the repairman pulled out the icemaker. DISGUSTING! Have you looked at yours? The plastic coating is all degraded and peeling off. That gets into the ice. Now wonder it tastes disgusting. This would be wonderful by allowing me to stop buying bags and avoid running out of ice. So glad I found this giveaway!!! :D
