BrylaneHome Portable and Compact Ice Maker Review & Giveaway!

BrylaneHome-Ice-Maker Don’t you just hate it when you feel like a homemade iced tea or coffee, and you have no ice?! This has happened to me on far too many occasions. I honestly hate using my ice cube trays because the cubes are just way too big, and are not small enough for me to chew. They take forever to turn into ice, and take up way to much space in my freezer. I am one of them people who loves to chew soft ice in my cold beverages. I just cannot help myself, and love the soft crunch, and icy goodness. I was spending $6 a week on store bought ice because my refrigerator’s ice machine is out of commission.

Before I had the opportunity to receive and review an ice maker from BrylaneHome, I had no idea that portable ice makers even existed! I totally would have invested in one years ago while I was pregnant because that is when I craved ice and lemon water the most. I was thrilled to discover that my favorite “everything home” online store had the perfect model for our home. BrylaneHome’s Portable and Compact Ice Maker is really ideal for any sized home, and is stylish, and small enough for everyday use!

Isn’t this such a cute ice maker? It fits perfectly on my table, counter, and little cabinet. It has such a modern look that I actually do not even mind leaving it out when not in use. It arrived packaged so neatly from BrylaneHome. They have the BEST shipping packagers ever! My items are always on time, and packaged with extreme care, and caution. Even breakable items arrive in one piece-safe and sound!

Brylane-Home-Ice-MakerAfter unboxing our ice maker, my husband and I thoroughly cleaned the interior with warm, and soapy water. It had a faint plastic smell, so I advise everyone to wash the interior before use. This model works best with bottled or filtered water so filling it to the desired cube amount with purified water will keep your ice cubes clear, and taste free.

ice-cubesAfter reading the manual that came with our ice maker, we decided to make three different sized ice cubes. As you can see, these cubes vary from small-large. They are solid yet very easy on the teeth if you are like me and love to chew ice. Each batch takes just 10 minutes to form ice cubes which is amazing!! This machine comes with a little scoop too which is adorable, and very handy. I made 5 batches of ice cubes, and stored them in a clean freezer bag for later use.

The BrylaneHome Ice Maker is fairly quiet in my opinion. It does not have a loud buzzing or humming sound, but more of a quiet one. Of course, once the ice cubes are ready to be popped out it gets a bit louder, but that is to be expected! This ice maker is one of the best items I have reviewed in a while and would make an amazing addition to any household that does not have the convenience of a built in refrigerator ice maker.


This is one batch of ice cubes

  39. I could have ice any time I wanted.

  40. Jennifer Garnick says:

    I love the fact that the ice isn’t going to have that chlorine/gross taste that some tap water has.
