Ready to say goodbye to those pesky ice trays that take up way too much space in the freezer? The Zafro Countertop Ice Maker offers a near-constant supply of cubes, ready to cool you down on the hottest summer days. All you do is pour water into the reservoir, turn it on and, thanks to its water circulation cooling system, you'll have ice cubes in just eight minutes. It cranks out about nine cubes in one go and can make 26 pounds of ice in 24 hours.

"Absolutely wonderful!" wrote a rave reviewer. "The ice maker has been so convenient for my family and I since I purchased it. The ice maker is very fast, even with four people who constantly use it. I love the shape and taste of the ice as well."

With that kind of speed and volume, you'll have plenty of ice for your next party — no need for a mad dash to the convenience store if you run out mid-party!

"I'm in love with this machine," reported a happy shopper. "You fill it to the max fill line with water (holds about a drinking pitcher full of water) and forget about it. It's super easy to operate and the ice is great. This would be ideal for an on-the-go ice need like camping or outdoor party."

FYI, though: While the Zayfro does make ice fast, it's not a freezer, so you'll have to store the ice in your regular freezer.

Its compact size is another one of the features shoppers love about this little ice cube powerhouse. At 12 inches high and 8 inches wide, this summer-saving wonder is designed to fit right on your kitchen counter, so you can have ice at your fingertips whenever you need it. No more rummaging through the freezer or dealing with giant unwieldy bags of ice.

"I can get a basket of ice in very little time," shared one cool customer. "I do not have an ice maker, don't want the space used by ice trays. Attractive on the baker's rack, small footprint."
