At $229, we can wholeheartedly recommend the countertop appliance, especially if you plan on hosting parties this summer.

GE Profile Opal 1.0 Nugget Ice Maker $229 (Was $449)

GE Profile Opal 1.0 Nugget Ice Maker

What sets the Opal 1.0 Nugget Ice Maker apart from the competition is the type of ice it makes. Instead of a solid cube, you get compacted ice flakes, which GE says retains some flavor and creates an unmatched texture. The company says the Opal 1.0 Nugget Ice Maker can have its first round of cubes done within 10 minutes and make up to 34 pounds of it per day. It can hold up to three pounds of ice before needing to be emptied, so you can leave it running without the risk of it overflowing if you can’t get to it right away.

You’ll have to fill up this ice maker’s internal water tank each time you want to make ice, but picking up its optional side tank—also on sale for Prime Day—will make that task less frequent. It may seem like an indulgence, but the Opal 1.0 Nugget Ice Maker deserves a place in every host’s home. The fact that its stainless steel construction makes it easy on the eyes while it’s on your countertop doesn’t hurt, nor does its single-button controls. If you’re looking for a Prime Day deal that’ll make chilling during the summer a little easier, don’t skip this one.
