The Northair Countertop Nugget Ice Maker outperforms other nugget ice makers on speed. It is the fastest countertop nugget ice maker that we have reviewed. The first nuggets are usually available within 10-15 minutes of turning on the machine. However where the Northair Countertop Nugget Ice Maker falls down on performance is the volume of ice produced. According to users the machine fails to deliver 44lbs of ice a day. In addition, it’s a bit noisy and some users commented that the ice melts rather fast in the ice bin (Approximately 1/3th of the ice will melt within the hour). Some users reported that the melted ice ran out the front and on the floor which can be annoying.
