Opal Nugget Ice Maker

The Opal Nugget Ice Maker does, predictably, one thing: makes nugget ice. And lots of it. Fill its reservoir with water and the machine gets to work making ice, first creating flakes that are then compacted into frozen nuggets composed of about air, half ice. The first bits of ice are ready about 15 minutes in and Opal continues churning it out at a rate of 1 pound per hour. Else it’s wrapped in a handsome stainless steel body, features capacitive touch controls, plugs into standard 120V outlets, and boasts a crystal clear easy-access ice bin. A large reservoir also catches meltwater from the ice bucket should it accidentally be unplugged, turned off, or sit through a power failure.
