Popular Mechanics; Courtesy AGLUCKY

Calling all ice connoisseurs—yes, we know you’re out there—Amazon is having a secret sale on countertop ice makers right now. While most refrigerators feature a built-in ice maker, they usually can’t keep up with demand once summer rolls around. A countertop ice maker, on the other hand, will keep you stocked up on ice at all times, whether you’re chilling drinks, filling a cooler, or playing bartender. Plus, for ice lovers, you can get a machine that makes your favorite shape of ice, from bullet ice to large ice cubes to Sonic-style nugget ice. And best of all: no more panic trips to the convenience store for a bag of ice when entertaining guests.

Besides being discounted just in time for peak summer heat, all of the ice makers included here have some of our favorite features to look for in a countertop ice maker. They all feature a clear plastic window on the top so you can see how many cubes you have left without opening the machine and letting in hot air, causing ice to melt faster. They also all have refillable water reservoirs that don’t require direct hookup to a water line, which makes them portable. Beyond your kitchen countertop, these compact and portable ice makers are also a handy appliance for camping, tailgating, road trips, or anywhere where you might want to cool down off the grid.

Ahead, shop the best countertop ice maker deals on Amazon, many of which are models that have been tested by our product experts. We expect these deals to sell out fast, so be sure to act now if you’ve been considering adding an ice maker to your collection of kitchen appliances.
