Today, on Redhead Mom, we’re sharing about the NewAir Countertop Nugget Ice Maker in partnership with NewAir.

NewAir Countertop Nugget Ice Maker

During the last month or so, we’ve been experiencing some HOT weather here on the California Central Coast! Being able to enjoy the “Good Ice” all day long has been something everyone in our home has enjoyed! When we saw the announcement from NewAir that they were going to be releasing a Countertop Nugget Ice Maker that makes up to 40lbs. of the “good ice” a day, we knew we wanted to have it in our home. This ice maker not only makes ice quickly, with the first batch in 5 minutes, but the ice tastes so good! It’s perfect to enjoy with your favorite soda or water or even alone.

There are many different commercial nugget ice makers out there, but they cost thousands of dollars and don’t fit seamlessly into the home. I love that the NewAir Countertop Nugget Ice Maker is compact and fits easily on our counter and under our cupboards. Plus, you can get your first batch of the “good ice” in just 5 minutes with up to 40lbs. of ice a day. Yes!!

NewAir Countertop Nugget Ice Maker


  • Get the “good ice” from your kitchen counter
  • Fresh first batch in 5 minutes
  • Melt-resistant, insulated interior
  • Makes up to 40lbs. of ice a day
  • Certified BPA-free parts



1. The “Good Ice” Has Never Tasted So Good

The nugget ice you love has never tasted crunchier or good to chew. The NewAir nugget ice is smaller than a sugar cube, but just as delightful to chew and just as satisfyingly soft. It’s the snowy pellets that instantly chill your drinks. Someone with pica, or who simply loves to chew this crunchy ice, knows that nugget ice is hard to find. Curb your cravings from home with an ice maker that gives you your favorite ice in an instant.

2. Fastest Nugget Ice Maker on the Market

Most compact ice makers take 20 minutes to make a full batch of ice. We designed the NewAir Nugget Ice Maker with a high-power cooling process to make it more efficient and faster than any other model on the market. Get a first batch of ice in 5 minutes.

3. Keep the “Good Ice” Insulated and Ready to Enjoy

An extra-thick wall keeps the crunchy NewAir ice colder-for-longer for unmatched ice retention. Our Nugget Ice Maker makes sure the “good ice” stays the “good ice”, so it is ready to enjoy when you are.

4. Clean Ice and Drinks that are Safe to Sip

Our nugget ice maker comes with a simple-to-use, self-cleaning function. It is also built from BPA-free parts, so you get clean ice that makes your drinks safe to sip.
