IKICH Ice Maker Countertop

Whether you’re blending up a recipe like today’s or simply enjoying your favorite iced beverage, there’s nothing quite like the soft, crunchy texture of pellet ice! Now, ice aficionados know that the GE Profile Opal Countertop Nugget Ice Maker is the crème de la crème… but it’s definitely a splurge. However, we’ve just learned that trusted brand IKICH has a top-rated model under $100 on Amazon! Podcast Mikey & Jamie swear by their IKICH… Jamie raves about how much easier and more enjoyable it is to get her eight glasses of agua a day. Definitely worth a spot in your Amazon cart. And of course if you decide to go with the Opal, we wouldn’t exactly blame you…
