Product Spotlight: Frigidaire Ice Maker

From soothing sore muscles to blending in your morning smoothie, ice cubes are used for a variety of things around the home. A Frigidaire ice maker is an easy and simple way to keep your kitchen stocked with all the ice you need. Since 1916, Frigidaire has been selling unique and innovative products to homes across America. Frigidaire sold the first-ever electric refrigerator in 1918 and has been selling exciting new products ever since. The company is known for offering high-quality appliances that are time-saving and easy to use. Frigidaire is also dedicated to protecting the environment by creating products that are energy efficient. In 2011, Frigidaire was named the Energy Star Partner of the Year for their dedication to smart energy management. 

Types of Ice Makers

Frigidaire’s Ice Maker Kits allow you to add ice-making capabilities to your current refrigerator. Each kit includes all the hardware and instructions necessary for a quick and easy installation. Frigidaire offers ice maker kits for both top mount and French door style refrigerators. The Frigidaire Smart Choice Universal Top Mount Refrigerator Ice Maker Kit is compatible with any top mount refrigerator manufactured from 2014 and onward. The kit is easily installed in the top freezer portion of your fridge, where the ice will then be continually made and stored.


The Frigidaire French Door Bottom Mount Ice Maker Kits are made to fit both standard-depth and counter-depth refrigerators manufactured from 2013 and onward. The Frigidaire French Door Bottom Mount Ice Maker Kit is capable of producing two pounds of ice within 24 hours and can store up to nine pounds of ice at one time.

Frigidaire also offers a portable ice maker. The Portable Countertop Ice Maker is a freestanding appliance and does not need to be installed inside your refrigeration unit. Making ice is as simple as plugging the ice maker into an electrical outlet and adding water. The first batch of ice is made in as little as six minutes and can make up to 26 lbs. of ice in 24 hours.

Choosing the Ice Maker That Is Right for You

Although they perform the same function, making ice quickly and efficiently, the Frigidaire Ice Maker Kits and Frigidaire’s Portable Countertop Ice Maker each have their advantages. Understanding the features and benefits of each ice maker will help you decide which model best suits your needs.

Once installed, Frigidaire Ice Maker Kits will continue to produce ice as long as your fridge is running. The ice maker runs automatically until the storage container is full, and it begins running again once any ice is removed. There is no need to fill the machine with water each time you need more ice. The ice machine is attached to a water line. You never have to worry about remembering to turn on a machine or fill ice cube trays again.

The most obvious benefit to the Portable Countertop Ice Maker is the ability to take it with you anywhere. With a compact stainless-steel design, it is the perfect ice maker for small areas such as RVs, dorm rooms, and boats. The flexibility of a portable ice maker allows you to store the appliance anywhere you choose, and it does not take up precious space in your refrigerator or freezer.

Caring for Your Frigidaire Ice Maker

Keep your ice tasting fresh and your ice maker clean and running smoothly by using filtered water. Limescale build-up is a common problem in many appliances that use water and can interfere with the ability of your ice maker to function at its best. By using filtered water in your ice maker, you can reduce the amount of time needed for cleaning and maintenance and extend the life of your machine.

Whether you choose one of Frigidaire’s Ice Maker Kits or a Portable Countertop Ice Maker, there are a variety of filters available to ensure your ice is being made with clean filtered water. Frigidaire Refrigerator water filters provide you with the certainty that only the purest water is being used in your Ice Maker Kits. Or you can feel confident filling your Portable Countertop Ice Maker from your kitchen tap with an inline water filter.


Frigidaire’s at-home ice makers provide you with quality, fresh ice while saving you time and money. With your personal ice maker, you no longer need to rush to the store to buy a bag of ice or remember to fill ice cube trays. Whether you are hosting a dinner party or cooling down on a hot summer day, use a Frigidaire ice maker and never run out of ice again.
