This ice maker makes up to 50 lbs of ice per day, and can store up to 25 lbs. Tahe unit provides clear ice cubes every time and with each scoop you get fresh, tasteless ice that is perfect for chilling your beverages.

WHIRLPOOL ICE MAKER PRODUCT SPECS
This Whirlpool ice maker is an under-counter built-in version with a field reversible door. The sides are black and front is great looking stainless steel. The dimensions are 14 7/8 inches wide with a depth of 24 3/8 inches. Ice makers serve the specific purpose of providing ample ice quantities for those who use ice frequently. The fast ice feature helps the ice maker keep up with the demand on especially heavy-use days and makes up to 50 lbs. of ice every 24 hours.
The interior light and scoop make for quick access, and when it's time for a cleaning, the clean cycle indicator reminds you on time, every time. A service indicator lets you know of malfunctions, should one occur.
This Whirlpool ice maker unit doesn't require a drain pump because they designed its drain system for connection to an external drain. Many people like this feature because a bad or restricted drain pump shuts down the system. A direct gravity drain connection eliminates the need for pump repairs and ensures proper draining every time.

The price of this unit comes with loads of expectations and it doesn't disappoint. A modern electronics feature is the Intuit Integrated Control for programming ability. For green minded individuals, an Eco mode is included for conservative use of ice. Design of the scoop moves away from established norms and this scoop is great looking and matches the appearance of the unit.

KENMORE 89592 15″ ICE MAKER
We rarely find crescent shaped ice from a mid-range ice maker like the Kenmore 89592. Ice afficionados enjoy their special ice, and crescent shapes are a favorite for many of them. They're easy to chew and provide a stylish way to chill your drinks. We like the Acceler-Ice feature that cranks out over 50 lbs of ice quickly and keeps up the pace regardless of demand.
The large ice bin is easy to reach with its included ice scoop. Presence of excess water does not interrupt ice production levels thanks to the factory installed drain pump. No more waiting for ice because excess water gets drained automatically. At the heart of the unit and with its high-output operation, they installed a high-efficiency compressor operating in a steady temperature environment to provide smooth and dependable operation.
Priced at about $1500, this unit's availability varies by region. This model is available at Sears, K-Mart, Nextag, and some outlet stores. Always call ahead to confirm price and availability.
