I own one and use it all the time, I have measured its power consumption at 120 VAC with a Watts up meter and mine draws 60W, I think, about the same as my fridge does. It should not even take your Honda off of eco RPM much less strain it, If it draws that kind of power, I'm honestly surprised it hasn't caught fire, I would not turn my back on it

We purchase one of these Gourmia GI500 Portable Compact Cube Machine.

Smallest one we could fine, but still make as much ice as the larger machines.
Works Great.
