Get a ‘Smart’ Nugget Ice Maker for Only $449 Before Cyber Monday

The GE Profile Opal 2.0 nugget ice maker is on sale at Amazon for $449, down from its usual $579 price. This is a great opportunity to buy one. The unit takes up a hefty footprint on your countertop, but that’s true of most devices in this category. Setting up is a bit cumbersome but wasn’t too terrible for a one-time process. It makes a pound of ice an hour and recirculates any ice that melts in the bin into the water reservoir below. Where the Opal 2.0 shines above its competition is its smart connectivity. The app allows you to control the bin light, turn on the maker, and set a schedule. It also alerts you when the unit needs cleaning. The smart features have worked flawlessly. I set up a preferred schedule when I first got the device, and it worked quietly. It is also compatible with Alexa and Google Home. This is a luxury purchase, but it’s worth the price. If you’re craving chewable ice and don’t mind the splurge, this is the best option.
