Overall Rating: 4.2/5
Owners of boats, yachts, and RV’s are going to love the Whynter MIM-14231SS ice machine because it was designed primarily for them. This under counter marine ice maker is just what you need to organize cocktail parties on your yacht or when you are on a camping trip with your friends.
It is compact enough to fit into small kitchens, and it can produce enough ice for a small party. Read on for more details.
The Whynter MIM-14231SS can fit on most medium sized boats and yachts, as well as RVs. Since it was designed to be used out of the house, it can produce 23 lbs of ice every day. To do so, you’ll need to pour 3 gallons of water into the machine, and you’ll have enough ice to last you the entire day. The machine is designed for mobile use which is why it doesn’t have a drain. It also reuses any melted ice to produce ice once again. All you have to do to get it started is to plug it in and press the on button.
The entire ice maker is made out of marine-grade components with a stainless steel finish.
The machine is more robust and durable than other models because it’s meant to be used outside of the house.
The ice bin can hold up to 12 pounds of ice you can use at any time.
The ice producing process will restart automatically when the bin is empty if there is still some water left in the tank.
The Whynter MIM-14231SS is resistant to corrosion and UV light making it perfect for harsh environments. It can withstand the corrosive effects of salt water. All you have to do is clean it from time to time, and it’s going to keep working for many years. This ice machine comes with a 6 foot braided stainless steel waterline that’s also resistant to corrosion.
You can use it without connecting it to a water source by pouring the required water in the tank yourself.
If you connect it to a tap in your yacht or RV, the ice production process will turn on automatically, without you having to pour the water in yourself.
The unit is 14 inches in width and it can fit under, or in most cabinets without the need for additional clearance around the side. You can choose whether you’ll open the doors from the left or the right side, you get to choose that yourself. Also, the doors are secured with a latch so that they won’t open in case of massive waves pounding your boat. These are all unique features designed to be used in harsh sailing conditions.
What Makes the Whynter MIM-14231SS so Special?
As we said before, the thing that sets this ice maker apart from others is its mobility. This is not an ice maker for your home (altho it could be), it’s meant to satisfy your ice needs when you’re fishing from your boat all day long, or when you go camping with your family.
The designers wanted to come up with a unit that can efficiently produce ice on the road, and that is exactly what they came up with.
This ice maker can fit under most counters, but it can work as a stand-alone unit in your RV, or boat. It is heavy and it’s made out of durable materials that are corrosion resistant so you know that it’s going to serve you for years to come. You can also decide which way will the door swing so you can set it almost anywhere. You literally only have to connect it to a power source and turn it on to produce ice.
