I don't know about you, but during our parties, our portable ice maker gets overloaded. Wouldn't it be nice to have a bunch of ice- maybe even shaved ice for margaritas- on hand? A portable ice maker will spare you driving to the supermarket in the middle of your party. This way, your social gathering will be a success. See below for the top 5 portable ice maker reviews.
This compact, quiet, and energy-efficient ice maker is a huge hit. Ice can be ready in 6 minutes and it can make up to 28 lbs per 24 hours. It makes ice in two sizes: small and medium bullet-shaped cubes. The melting water is reused to make more ice. There is also an automatic shut-off function when the basket is full. This is a great machine for parties, Sunday Funday by the pool, or the office. It comes with an ice-scooper. The best part? It is affordable at $130.
This machine comes in four colors: black, grey, red, and titanium. It is small so easy to take with you on the boat or RV. It holds up to 2.5 lbs of ice at a time and will make 28 lbs in 24 hours. It will make ice in 3 different sizes: small, medium, and large bullet-shaped cubes. It is easy to use with touch buttons that allows you to choose your size of ice.

This is the top-of-the line ice maker, and the price reflects it at about $500. However, it seems to be the only machine out there that makes ice into the small crushed nuggets. I have met people, who are very particular about their ice and swear this machine changed their lives! It produces 1 pound of ice an hour and holds 3 lbs. It is a compact machine and fairly portable.
I am forgetting the most amazing part: it is programmable by bluetooth! That's right, it is a "smart ice machine."
Choosing the portable ice maker all depends on what you are going to use it for. If you want to have extra ice for cocktails, then you only need the ice machine- and the HomeLabs one is a great option. However, if you like ice nuggets and don't want the extra step of crushing ice, then you should spend the extra money to get the bluetooth-operated Opal Nugget.
