I bought one off of amazon.com, $99 at the time, works really well. Draws 60 watts at 120 VAC.
It and the vacuum food
sealer were according to my wife, the best things we have bought.
One we got was an ivation but I think they are all about the same, shop by price
These things take a little while to get into their stride, the way they work is a little bucket gets filled with water
and there are metal fingers that stick down in the water
, ice freezes on these fingers and then they are heated a little and the ice falls off. The extra water flows back into the water tank and if any ice melts, that water too goes into the tank. This makes the water very cold and the colder the water, the faster ice is made. So after the first 30 min or so, it gets to making ice fast. It beeps to let you know the ice hopper is full and beeps to let you know it's low on water.
We make ice and store it in gallon zip loc freezer bags, best to make ice when there is excess power, like when motoring or plugged in, generator
