Thought I'd pass along info on my latest favorite kitchen appliance.
this thing!! I opted against having an ice maker in our refrigerator for several reasons. They take up way too much room in the freezer and our tap water is terrible. Since we use large amounts of ice in the summer, we ordered this nifty ice maker the other day and couldn't be more pleased! We use bottled water in it, and the cubes can be made in three sizes.
I have a shelf for it on the service porch, off of the kitchen, because of my limited counter space. It's nice looking and it would be fine on a counter if you have room.
