BrylaneHome Portable and Compact Ice Maker Review & Giveaway!

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.

  1. `Jen Voss says

    We recently moved into a new house that does not have an ice maker in the fridge. I had no idea how much I would miss it! I never remember to refill the ice cube tray. So I would love one of these.

  2. says

    This would be the perfect gift for my sil who absolutely loves to chew ice. She fills up her glass and really just nibbles on ice through out the day. I’ve never seen a portable ice maker, and this is space efficient and pretty dang on cool.

  3. says

    I have an ice maker that we bought at Target that is similar to this one and it works great. I recommend them since they’re such a lifesaver when it’s party time. We never run out of ice now. Great review!

  4. Birdiebee says

    I would love to have one of these. I go through quite a bit of ice cubes in a day as I only drink water and this would be so helpful especially during the warmer months when my water gets warm very quickly.

  5. says

    I have got to get one of these!!! Living in the country our well water is not good for the fridges with the water and ice on the door! I would love to have a portable ice maker!

  6. Birdiebee says

    I sure could use this. Thank you for the review. I also would like to know if this is a giveaway. If so, how do I go about entering? Thanks againn!

  7. Susan Watson says

    oh man, I need this sooo bad……my friends always complaining about NO ICE…….and we are always hosting something every weeknd

  8. Shayne says

    I feel that drinks taste better with ice, so I put ice in every cups of my drinks.
    The problem is I don’t have any ice makers at home, so when I need some I have to drive to the store. That would be nice if I have one at home that way everyone in the family can enjoy our drinks together

  9. Jennifer Garnick says

    I love the fact that the ice isn’t going to have that chlorine/gross taste that some tap water has. I drink a lot of bottled water and if I had this I could actually use ice cubes instead of having funky tasting cubes. My daughter loves to drink water, especially in the summer, and now I can give it to her ice cold after playing outside. Thanks for the chance!

  10. Cherie Thomas says

    We never have enough ice at my house. I would love to win this prize to keep the ice cubes coming and on hand when we need them.

    I use ice in every cold drink; even when it’s cold outside! This would be a great machine to have. I don’t have a deep freezer, so our little fridge freezer can’t make enough ice in trays for me! *LOL*

  14. Tena Osborne says

    We do a lot of outside work and our trays cant keep up with us. We buy bagged ice in the summer but then we don’t have much room in out fridge.

  15. Sandy Cain says

    We go through SO much ice in a day, even in the winter, We currently have 10 ice trays in the freezer, and still run out of cubes!

  16. Linda Meyers-Gabbard says

  20. Sandy Cain says

  21. Birdiebee says

    I drink water everyday and my refrigerator does not have any ice maker nor enough room for ice cube trays. I really could use this. Nice giveaway!

  22. Sandy Cain says

    I need this ice maker. I REALLY need it. 10 trays of ice a day are not enough for my brother, all we do here is fill up ice trays! OMG!

  23. Ann B. says

    I have a side by side fridge, and having to stack ice cube trays takes up much of my precious freezer space…hubby must have his ice, but Mama can’t save any money if she cant buy stuff to freeze….I would love to win this prize.

  24. Lori Hodge says

    I would so love to win this! I can think of many reason why this would come in handy. Large family that uses tons of ice! Extra ice for when we go camping, fishing and hiking!

  25. Birdiebee says

    I would love to win this so I have ice all day long for my water. I have health issues and water is the only thing I can drink and the tap water is warm.

  26. Emilie Proctor says

    This would be nice to keep at my Grandpa’s house. My mom and Grandpa constantly have to have a cup of ice tea!

  27. Sandy Cain says

    I’d like to win this because we go through 10 ice trays a day. Although right now, there’s enough ice outside to furnish us for a week!!!!!

  28. Renee Patterson Travis says

    This would be awesome for outside in the summer, could plug it in on the porch and have my cold tea!

  29. Ann B. says

    I went grocery shopping yesterday….had to remove a stack of ice cube trays just to fit my frozen groceries in the freezer. I sure hope I win this so I don’t have to do this anymore!

  30. Sandy Cain says

    I SO need this! My brother goes through 10 ice trays a day……OMG, someone help! Ice, Ice….all he wants is ice….

  31. Dennis R. says

    These ice makers are the greatest. I’ve used one before and it really is a nice product. The shape of the little “cubes” will chill down a drink in a flash … very nice.

  32. Ann B. says

    I can see myself out shopping in the frozen isle already, once I can get all those darn ice cube trays out of my side by side freezer!

  33. Virginia Rowell says

    This would be awesome. We don’t have an ice maker so I use trays and I take a little cooler with me to work everyday and use it all. Then we never have ice for the house.

  34. Linda Meyers-Gabbard says

    It would make a great addition to our new house. We could put it in the basement next to the bar/entertainment area

  35. Birdiebee says

    I have to drink water all day long for my health and the water that comes out of the tap stays warm forever. The refrigerator we have is an apartment-size refrigerator so there is no room to have ice cube trays in the freezer compartment. I would use this ice maker everyday.

  36. Sandy Cain says

    I’d love to win this because I am tired of refilling my brother’s 10 ice trays every day! (although now, there is enough ice right outside to supply the whole neighborhood. Go away, winter!!!)

  37. Judy Mitchell says

    I have a large family that get together other (groups of about 30 of us) and this would be perfect for making ice for all our drinks the day of the party instead of buying ice.
