Luma Comfort offered me the opportunity to do a review of one of their products. They have several interesting products that I was interested in and I decided that one of the portable ice makers would be an interesting product to try. I was sent a free sample of the Luma Comfort IM200SS Stainless Steel Portable Clear Ice Maker in order to do the review. I was not compensated to do this review, my opinions are my own and not by any means influenced by any other part.
Now that summer is approaching and temperatures are finally warming up, the Luma Comfort IM200SS Portable Clear Ice Maker is a great addition to your home kitchen or bar. The compact unit is stylish and compact which is a must for us in our condo.
The unit is fairly light weight as I was able to lift it with no extra help. It is very easy to install, all you need to do is free the unit of all packaging, wipe clean the inside of the ice maker, plug it in for about an hour to let the unit set and then turn it on.
Since there is no plumbing involved with this unit, you will need to manually add the water to the reservoir. The unit has 3 different lights right on the top of the cover ( on/off light, ice full and the need water sign).
The unit is fairly quiet. It blends in with the refrigerator noise (I have it sitting beside the fridge), so that is pretty much all you hear, the same noise you would hear from a fridge with the occasional sound of ice falling when the ice is made. The Luma Comfort IM200SS Stainless Steel Portable Clear Ice Maker delivers small sets of clear ice.
In the inside of the unit, you will find a set of flaps…whenever the flaps are down the unit is at rest, if you take ice out and the flaps are lifted, the unit will start with the ice making process once again.
The Luma Comfort IM200SS Stainless Steel Portable Clear Ice Maker features a sleek stainless steel finish that looks great in any modern kitchen. The unit produces up to 28 lbs. daily….according to Luma comfort the Clear ice melts 5x slower than cloudy ice, so I put it to the test and filled two glasses with ice from my freezer and ice from the ice maker.
I let both glasses stand for twenty minutes and the ice on both look good…I added water and let them sit for ten minutes and the ice was still there, so I don’t know how accurate the statement that it melts 5x slower is , but I can tell you it does last quite a while!
The Luma Comfort IM200SS Stainless Steel Portable Clear Ice Maker comes with a small scooper to serve the ice and works nicely while blending neatly with my kitchen décor. We are planning to entertain quite often during the summer and the extra ice is certainly very appreciated not only during the times when we have friends over, but also on weekends when DH usually takes a cooler to the soccer fields and leaves the house without any ice! And of course this is a nice thing to have when spending time by the pool or beach and you need some extra ice to bring along…So we definitely like having the extra ice source at home.
One thing to keep in mind is that Luma Comfort recommends to change the water in the water reservoir every 24 hours which is very easy to do and will guarantee you get your clear, clean ice. To change the water, simply use the drainage port located on the back of the unit ( white rounds screw on piece), unscrew this piece and you will find a small tube with a small plug. Pull the plug and let the water drain( make sure to place both the screw and plug in a safe place , you do not want to lose those)!
The Luma Comfort IM200SS Stainless Steel Portable Clear Ice Maker is available at selected retailers with an average price of $239.99!
