FOOING 26lbs/24Hrs Portable Countertop Ice Maker Review
FOOING ice maker is a portable countertop appliance that like most produces up to 26 pounds of ice cubes in 24 hours.
FOOING ice maker uses R600a /23g refrigerant and pure copper columns to make ice cubes. It makes a batch of 9 ice cubes every 7-9 minutes.
Just like most countertop ice maker this one also makes bullet shaped ice cubes with hollow middle. Ice cubes of this shape have larger contact area with you drink which increases cooling ability but also makes them melt faster.
It offers two ice cube size options – small and large but the difference between them is insignificant to the point you might not even notice it. Even the large ice cubes are rather small.
Ice basket is not refrigerant so ice cubes will slowly melt unless you put them in your freezer.
For optimal performance FOOING ice maker machine should be used in ambient (air) temperature that ranges from 50°F to 89.6°F (10°C to 32°C) and water temperature should be from 46.4°F to 82.4°F (8°C to 28°C).
FOOING ice maker has 2 buttons and 5 indicator lights. One of the buttons is obviously for turning ice maker on or off while the other is for selecting ice cube size.
Two of the indicators are simply for warning you when ice basket is full of ice cubes or water reservoir is empty and you should add water. Then two more are for showing which ice cube size you have selected, each size setting has its own indicator. The fifth indicator which is located in the middle simply indicates that ice maker is turned on and making ice.
FOOING ice maker is not particularly feature rich but it does have some like sensors that detect when ice basket is full or water reservoir empty, drain plug at the bottom of the ice maker and transparent lid so you can see how many ice cubes are in the basket without opening the lid.
Water reservoir capacity is 2 liters or 68 oz.
This is a decent ice maker. It makes ice cubes well enough but not at a rate it would keep up with demand if you are having guests over. It’s not significantly different than most other portable/countertop ice makers that make up to 26 lbs of ice cubes in 24 hours.
