Make the Best Ice with the New Air Countertop Nugget Ice Maker

 *Disclaimer - I received the product in this post from New Air, in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own and my experiences with this product.

Are you looking for a great ice maker that will make plenty throughout the day?

If you know me very well, you know that I love ice - and not just ANY ice, I love hospital ice that you get when in labor or in the ER for that matter; and I finally found out the kind of ice it is called is nugget ice. 

So, I have been on the search for quite a while for nugget ice that was affordable, and then I searched into other options and wanted to possibly work with a brand to review a nugget ice maker - and I found the perfect brand and nugget ice maker with New Air!!! 

I was really excited when I found out that my search was over and that once they re-stocked, I would be receiving my own Countertop Nugget Ice Maker, from New Air!!! The really awesome thing that I like about this one is that it can make up to 40 lbs of ice per day if you want it to; that's a lot of ice!

Use that link in the above sentence to place your order for your own countertop nugget ice maker, and use the code: CHITCHATMOM , and the SKU is: NIM040SS00 . 

It was very much worth the wait, and once it arrived I knew from seeing online reviews and hearing from customers that it's a good idea to open the package but to leave the ice maker off for a full 24 hours prior to plugging it in and using it.

Of course, 24 hours seemed like a long time, but once it got here and was time where I could turn it on I made sure that I was familiar with the how to use it booklet before turning it on as I didn't want to mess anything up and want this maker to last me a long time! Personally, once I turned it on have kept it on continually just in case I want more ice through the evening without having to plug it back in. 

It told me to wipe it with a wet rag to clean it before using, so I did that and removed the ice tray and cleaned it as well. And then, I looked in the lid once opening it and poured warm/lukewarm water into the tank, and where the bump on each side is, is where I stop with the water. I removed the small scoop that was inside the tank prior to adding water to it. 

Once you do that, place the ice tray back in place and turn it on. I did that and then it was red and it said to press the button again to start the ice making. I pressed it again once I closed the lid. At this point, it took about 20 - 25 minutes for the tank to fill with my new nugget ice and the tray was mostly full of ice, and ready to eat and also be added to our glasses for adding with my Dr Pepper and our kids water! 

The ice at first seemed like it melted pretty easily, but once I made my second batch, it was like normal ice and stayed cold and frozen until I was done with it. First, I used it for water for myself as well as for our three year old daughter's water, and we both APPROVE 100% and love it so so much!! 

I used and use my scoop that came with my nugget ice maker each time I'm getting ice out to put in my glass. It's nice and small which makes it really easy for scooping it out each time. Look at how perfectly it came out! I have never owned an ice maker of any kind before and very much approve of this one and couldn't be happier! 

The only thing you should know is that the flap that is closed when you open the ice maker should be open while ice is being made to make it a lot easier on you, as you'll automatically have the ice filled in the tray, versus if you keep it closed you will have to open it everytime to get the ice out and into the tray. 

My glass half full with nugget ice and it was great. I use it multiple times a day for my own drinks which is easy and very convenient as a mom of five. I use to not want to drink much water, but now I love water with nugget ice to put in every glass of water or water bottle full for it. 

She wanted some ice in her own cup and she's had it everyday almost since! She likes eating it, as well as having it in water to make it a lot colder.
