SOOPYK IC1202 / IC1201 Countertop 27-lbs/24h Ice Maker Review
SOOPYK IC1202 (or SOOPYK IC1201 in silver color) is portable countertop ice maker that can make up to 27 pounds of ice cubes in 24 hours.
SOOPYK IC1201/IC1202 makes 9 bullet shaped ice cubes with hollow inside per batch. Eatch batch takes 7-10 minutes to make.
Ice quality is pretty good – ice cubes are soft and chewable. Only thing you might dislike is the size – they are pretty small.
Ice basket isn’t refrigerated so already made ice cubes will melt but they melt slowly (ice maker is probably well insulated).
SOOPYK ice maker has very basic and simple control panel. It features only 1 button which obviously turns ice maker on or off if you press it but it also doubles down as self-clean button – if you hold it for 3 seconds it will enter self-cleaning mode.
It also has 3 indicator lights. 2 of them warn you about either water reservoir being empty or ice basket being full of ice cubes. The third indicator light is simply power indicator.
SOOPYK ice maker has 2 infrared sensors – 1 of them detects when water reservoir is empty and the other when ice basket is full. If if detects either it will pause ice production, light up appropriate indicator light and start beeping. The beeping part can be very annoying because they are loud and seem to go on for a long time.
Ice water reservoir is 1.8 liters which equals to about 61 oz. Ice basket can hold up to 0.8 kg or ice cubes (about 1.76 lbs).
SOOPYK IC1201/IC1202 ice maker also features translucent lid window so you don’t have to open the lid to see how many ice cubes are in the basket which would allow warm air to enter inside and potentially negatively impact quality of next 1-2 batches.
SOOPYK IC1201/IC1202 ice maker also has self-cleaning mode.
SOOPYK ice maker feels well made and really solid.
SOOPYK IC1202 ice maker machine measures 8.7 inches wide, 12.6 inches deep and 12 inches high.
SOOPYK IC1202 / IC1201 is not the most advanced ice maker on the market but neither it’s priced as one. For the money it’s pretty decent. It’s up to you to decide whether you need a cheap basic ice machine which does a decent enough job of making ice cubes or something more advanced.

I would not recommend this product to anyone. It was giving to me for Christmas, it worked great for 5 months. Now it won’t stop making ice until it runs out of water, or I shut it off.
