In this EUHOMY commercial ice maker machine review I'll be focusing on the machine's features, performance, pros and cons, as well as a few improvements I'd like to see from the manufacturer.
This compact and affordable ice maker fits nicely under just about any counter, making it ideal for commercial as well as residential (home) use.
Impressive Features & Performance
The EUHOMY Commercial Ice Machine is designed to produce 99 lbs of ice per day and can store up to 33 lbs of ice at a time. This capacity ensures that I never have to worry about running out of ice, even during busy periods. The machine's stainless steel construction gives it a sleek and professional look that blends well with any setting.
One standout feature is the multi-function control panel, which is equipped with a smart LCD panel. The panel provides information on the temperature of the surrounding environment, allowing me to ensure optimal ice production. It also allows for customization of the size of the cubes by adjusting the ice making time, ensuring there is always enough ice in the ice bin.
Additionally, the ice maker has an automatic cleaning function, activated by pressing the clean button, ensuring the machine remains hygienic and efficient.
Efficient & Quiet Operation
The EUHOMY Commercial Ice Maker Machine operates efficiently without making much noise (very low noise compared to my old fridge). The powerful compressor allows for quick ice production while maintaining a comfortable environment.
Moreover, this ice-making monster is energy-efficient and has an energy certificate, helping to reduce electricity bills in the long run.
Easy Maintenance & Cleaning
As hinted at before, regular cleaning is recommended. The manufacturer suggests to drain water once a day- after heavy usage - by pulling out the small hose on the right side of the water tank. This gravity drainage system helps prevent any buildup or clogging.
It is also important to keep the machine upright for at least 24 hours before initial use. The "Cleaning Program" initiated by pressing the "Timer Clean" button for more than 5 seconds ensures thorough cleaning before the first batch of ice is made.
While the EUHOMY ice maker is an impressive stand alone ice maker, there are a few improvements I would like to see (for purely selfish reasons). Firstly, adjustable and taller feet would make it easier to level the machine on uneven surfaces.
Additionally, increasing the overall height of the cabinet would eliminate the clearance between the ice maker and the countertop, providing a more finished look after installation.
Lastly, replacing the plastic ice shovel with a sturdier alternative would be appreciated, especially when using the machine at higher cube size settings. I ended up getting myself this scoop - here!
In conclusion, the EUHOMY Commercial Ice Maker Machine has been an excellent addition to my small coffee shop. It's an industrial ice machine (considering the amount of ice it produces) yet it's high efficiency and compact design would make it a fantastic household ice maker as well - something the entire family would appreciate.
It delivers consistent and abundant ice production, and its compact size makes it a versatile choice for both commercial and home use.
With easy-to-use controls, efficient operation, and convenient maintenance, this ice maker has met my expectations. Although there are a few minor improvements I'd like to see, overall, I highly recommend the EUHOMY Commercial Ice Maker Machine for anyone in need of a reliable and efficient ice maker.
It's definitely the best ice maker I have ever owned!

To clean the EUHOMY commercial ice maker, follow these steps:
- Daily Drainage: The manufacturer recommends draining water from the machine once a day. You can do this by pulling out the small hose on the right side of the water tank. This helps prevent any buildup or clogging.
- Initial Use: Before the first use, keep the ice maker upright for at least 24 hours. This allows any refrigerant to settle properly.

A high output commercial ice maker, like the EUHOMY, works by using a refrigeration cycle to freeze water into ice cubes. Here's a simplified overview:
- Water Supply: Water is supplied to a reservoir inside the ice maker.
- Freezing Process: A refrigeration system, including a compressor and evaporator, cools the water in the reservoir. The evaporator has molds or trays in which the ice forms. The water freezes layer by layer, trapping impurities and creating clear ice.
- Harvesting: Once the ice cubes have fully formed, a heating element or hot gas is used to loosen them from the molds. The ice cubes then drop into a storage bin.
- Storage: The ice maker's storage bin keeps the ice cubes frozen until they are ready to be used.
- Control Panel: Some commercial ice makers, like the EUHOMY, have control panels that allow you to adjust settings such as ice cube size and initiate cleaning cycles.
