BOSSIN BZ5812C 26 lbs/24 hrs Countertop Ice Maker Review

BOSSIN BZ5812C countertop ice maker can produce up to 26 pounds of bullet shaped ice cubes with hollow inside every day.

Ice production

BOSSIN BZ5812C can make ice cubes in two sizes: small and large. It makes 9 ice cubes per batch. Batch of small ice cubes takes 6-9 minutes to be made whereas a batch of large ones about 13.

Bullet shaped ice cubes with hollow inside have larger contact area with your drink than square shaped cubes – because of this they melt faster however also do a better job of cooling your drink. When ice cubes melt water goes right back into water reservoir.
