Gevi Nugget Ice Machine – Countertop Pellet-Ice Maker Machine

With the summertime already here, there’s nothing like a refreshing ice-filled drink. While you could simply use standard ice cubes to prepare some summertime drinks at home, having a pellet ice maker machine would allow you to use pellet ice instead, which is better for preparing drinks. Essentially, pellet ice (AKA nugget ice or sonic ice) are particularly small ice cubes that measure only around 0.39 inches long and are even narrower in diameter. Their small size allows them to fill a beverage glass more efficiently than the lumbering ice cubes you’d get from standard ice bags. Unlike standard ice, which has rougher edges, pellet ice also has much smoother sides, so it doesn’t clink that loudly, and instead makes a soothing and gentle shuffling sound inside your beverage cup. Lastly, pellet ice cubes also have more air pockets than standard ice cubes, which not only gives them better insulation and allows this type of ice to melt more slowly, but also makes them lighter, fluffier, and easier for people to chew on without harming their teeth. Now, to make pellet ice at home, all you need is something like the Gevi Nugget Ice Maker.

The Gevi Nugget Ice Maker is a countertop pellet-ice maker machine that can make some crunchy, chewable pellet ice in just 15 minutes, and up to 26 lbs. every 24 hours, featuring a removable ice basket with 4.8L capacity, a thick insulation layer that gives it a 70% ice retention rate for up to 12 hours, along with an intuitive control panel with intelligible indicators, a 2.8L / 3 Quarts water reservoir that supports both a manual and an automatic water-refill methods, and an internal Hygiene System that gives it an automatic self-cleaning function.

With this sleek countertop nugget ice maker, you can easily prepare delicious and super-refreshing summertime drinks at home, all without ever having to worry about going to the grocery just to purchase your typical ice cube bags, which, as you now know, tend to be of a much lower-quality than pellet ice.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the Gevi Nugget Ice Maker and check out exactly how this countertop pellet-ice maker machine is designed to work, and also talk a little about everything that it has to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

So, starting with the machine’s size, as said before, this is a countertop pellet-ice maker machine, meaning that it is meant to be set-up on your kitchen’s countertop. With that said, know that the Gevi Nugget Ice Maker comes at a fairly compact size, measuring just 9.7 inches long by 17.6 inches wide (14.6 inches wide at its base-level) by 16.9 inches tall, so it won’t really take up much space from your kitchen countertop. Note that the whole unit still has some weight to it, with the whole thing weighing exactly ‎40.3 lbs. (18.27 kg).

Measurements

As said before, this countertop pellet-ice maker machine comes equipped with a removable ice basket for storing its pellet ice that has exactly 4.8 Liters. of maximum capacity, which measures just 7.7 inches long by 5.9 inches wide by 6.2 inches tall.

Eequipped with a removable ice basket

Since the machine’s ice basket can be easily removed, you can easily wash it whenever necessary, which can be done either by hand, or alternatively, by putting it into your dishwasher machine, as its ice basket is made of a high-quality BPA-free Plastic, which makes it 100% machine-washable.

Moreover, the unit also comes together with a neat Plastic Ice Scoop that measures 5.7 inches long by 1.7 inches wide, which makes it both easy and quick for users to fill up their home-made summertime drinks with some freshly made pellet ice directly from the machine’s 4.8L Ice Basket.

Now, note that this countertop pellet-ice maker machine features a gorgeous, ultra-modern and fairly minimalist design, which allows it to blend in nicely with the rest of your kitchenware.

Not only that, but the Gevi Nugget Ice Maker also features an extremely durable construction, as its outer shell is completely made of a high-quality ‎Stainless Steel.

More importantly, sitting just under its Stainless Steel, this countertop pellet-ice maker machine also integrates a thick insulation layer throughout its internal housing that gives its pellet ice cubes an outstanding 70% retention rate (at 80°F ambient temperature).

An internal Thick Insulation Layer gives its pellet ice an oustanding 70% retention rate that greatly slows down its melting process

This thick insulation layer basically helps to prevent its pellet ice from melting fast, ultimately allowing it to last up to 12 hours before starting to melt.

Furthermore, the Gevi Nugget Ice Maker also comes equipped with a built-in Infrared Sensor and a Smart IC chip that together control its whole pellet-ice making process, which will trigger the machine to pause that process whenever its ice basket is detected to be full, as well as whenever the machine’s water reservoir is detected to be running low on water.

The machine will then automatically restart its pellet-ice making process whenever its basket has been emptied and/or its water reservoir has been refilled.

For producing its pellet ice, as said before, this countertop pellet-ice maker machine uses a 2.8L / 3 Quarts water reservoir, which ultimately makes it capable of making some crunchy, chewable pellet ice in just 15 minutes (around 0.27 lbs. every 15 minutes), which equates to around 1.08 lbs. of pellet ice per hour, or up to 26 lbs. every 24 hours (if you just leave the machine running).

The machine’s 2.8L / 3 Quarts water reservoir can be filled in two (x2) different ways, as it supports both a manual water-refill method, as well as an automatic water-refill method.

For manually refilling this pellet-ice maker machine, you simply have to manually fill up its water reservoir with exactly 2.8L / 3 Quarts of water.

Alternatively, you can also have the Gevi Nugget Ice Maker directly connected to your household’s tap-water system via a dedicated 1/4” Water Inlet Hose, which will allow the machine to automatically refill its 2.8L / 3 Quarts water reservoir with tap water.

Finally, we’d also like to point out that this countertop pellet-ice maker machine is electric powered, for which the unit features a Voltage of 120 Volts and a Rated Wattage of 170 Watts.

INTERFACE / CONTROL PANEL

As stated before, this countertop pellet-ice maker machine also comes integrated with an intuitive control panel (located at the top-side of the machine) that features simple and straightforward Button Controls, which makes the machine very easy to use and operate.

Going from left to right of the machine’s Button Controls, we have a Making LED (which informs users that the machine is currently making its pellet ice cubes), a Cleaning LED (which indicates that the machine is running its self-cleaning cycle), an On / Off Power Button, a Clean Button (which lets users set the machine to run its self-cleaning cycle), a Add-Water Warning LED (informs users that the machine is running low on water), and a Full LED (that tells users the machine’s 4.8L Ice Basket is full).

MAINTENANCE

Last but not least, in terms of the machine’s maintenance process, as said before, the Gevi Nugget Ice Maker also comes equipped with an internal Hygiene System that gives it an automatic self-cleaning function.
