Any suggested portable ice makers?

We're all hoping Mother Nature will start granting us better camping weather soon. When the weather is hot, and you NEED those thirst quenching drinks (some with those little umbrellas) you'll be needing ice cubes to cool them down.

Anyone found a good portable unit for a decent price that can stand up to the challenge and is still relatively small???

Cheers!

See you around the camp fire!

I saw this in a Heartland America catalog...
Heartland America: Portable Ice Maker

And, no, I am in no way associated with them! (This is the second time I have posted a link to them...don't want anyone to get any ideas!)

As for the product, I have no idea about the quality/functionality. Just seemed like a better price than I have seen elsewhere.

We bought a cheap one at Menard's ( building supply store) , last year. It was around $99 or so. Works great and doesn't take up much space. The make is a Bellini. It even took a tumble off the countertop last year when we hit rough seas on a houseboat vacation, and it still works great! Best $100 we ever spent. Can make up to 20 lbs. A day.

We also bought one at Menards and used it all summer long. Very happy with this product and has already paid for itself.

Have had our ice maker for about 3 weeks. Bought it from Kohl's online. Wife had discount coupons from them paid about $135 including shipping. We choose the Magic Chef ice maker after reading the online reviews from RVers. Makes ice every 7 minutes and have 3 sizes to choose from for the ice cubes. Capable of making 35 lbs of ice in 24 hrs. Would definitely recommned the Magic Chef ice maker.

I saw some at Canadian Tire for $149.00, but this ad says it is $199.00, must have others that are cheaper.
