Amazon Find of the Day: Countertop Ice Maker (Ice in 6 Minutes!)

File this highly rated find in the WORTH IT category. The compact ice-making machine produces perfect ice in six minutes flat. It’s a tiny FRACTION of the price of similar models, and it comes with a 2-year warranty. Choose from small and large cubes. (Lisa is OBSESSED with small pellet-like ice!!) It’s also eco friendly AND super quiet…
