We’ve been recommending the Edgestar IB120SS to a lot of clients lately, due to it’s great value and it’s performance. Edgestar has actually been making this model for over 5 years and it has a great track record. It’s been available on Amazon since February of 2008, and has a lot of great feedback from reviews.

This could be the most perfect built in, residential ice maker on the market today. It’s minimal installation requirements and lack of any drain requirement makes it perfect for so many applications. Boat, recreational vehicles, kitchens, basement bars, all great places for the Edgestar IB120SS.

Edgestar IB120SS Ice Maker Pros and Cons



  • Refrigerated ice storage
  • No Drain Required


  • Only 12 pounds per day of ice making capability
  • Only 6 pounds of ice storage

There are A LOT of residential, built in, ice makers out there, but very few actually have a refrigerated ice storage bin! And I can’t think of any at this price point. This is a great feature and one that shouldn’t be overlooked. With a height of 25 inches, this ice maker will fit under pretty much all counters. And because of the refrigerated ice storage area, it doesn’t require a drain, making it possible to install anywhere you want, assuming you have a water access point nearby. It comes with a 25 foot water hose in case the water access isn’t super close.

Edgestar IB120SS review

The Edgestar IB120SS has a reversible door for even more installation options and now has a redesigned water pump for better reliability and performance. The compact IB120SS model makes up to 12 pounds of beautiful, clean, crescent shaped ice cubes per day and stores up to six pounds in the bin.

This little guy (25 1/4″h x 15″w x 18 1/2″d and a weight of 54 pounds) has a lot of great features that you usually have to pay twice the price of this unit to get. While installation is pretty simple, The Ice Experts (and the manufacturer) recommend you have a licensed plumber install this Edgestar ice maker to ensure proper installation and highest and safest performance.

This is a superb built in, or free standing, ice maker for our residential clients who don’t require a large quantity of ice per day. It is also perfect for small spaces. In fact we often recommend the EdgeStar IB120SS over any of the portable ice makers, due to its great reliability, and its refrigerated ice storage. You won’t find that feature on a portable ice maker.
