3 Best Portable Ice Makers with Water Dispenser In 2023

If you are reading this article is because obviously, you want the best of two worlds, a portable ice maker with a built-in water dispenser, which is perfect for outdoor activities.

One thing I want to make sure you are aware of is that we picked the best ice makers with water dispenser but you will order it based on your own criteria.

Northair HZB-22BF

The Northair 2 in 1 with water dispenser is a great countertop ice maker, it is able to produce 40 pounds of bullet-shaped ice, averaging 12 ice cubes every 10 minutes. With a removable 4 pounds ice basket that makes it even more practical.

This powerful machine will be able to produce ice and cool the water. It gives you the option to fill up the water tank manually or use the 5-liter water jug intake option for automatic water feeding.

The straightforward control panel makes it easy to use. There you will have light indicators that tell you when the machine is on when to add water, and when the ice is ready, you can also choose whether you want ice or water plus the ability to choose from three different ice cubes sizes (small, medium, and large) and a drain plug that allows you to drain away from the reminded water.

Despite having a sleek design, the stainless steel, and ABS plastic material makes it even more durable without forgetting the 1-year warranty and the 30-day return policy that adds even more confidence to the quality of the machine.

We want to be as transparent as possible and we do not have partnerships with any ice maker brand so what we state here is what it is.

The majority of reviews on this stand-alone water machine are very different which makes us think those are isolated issues and not general issues, BUT the one issue that seems to be more common is the water take and this is because it doesn’t have a separate water reservoir for the water dispenser, therefore, if you want a cold glass of water after a couple of days of not using it you might experience an odd plastic taste.


The COSTWAY 2 in 1 countertop ice maker with built-in Water Dispenser is a more compact machine than the previous one on the list, it is a light 21 pounds machine, 16.4 pounds lighter than  Northair HZB-22BF, therefore, it is perfect to have in your kitchen or to carry it with you.

One of the things that you should pay attention to is the average cycle time, being able to make 9 bullet-shaped ice in as little as 6 minutes, that is really, really fast, and 36 pounds of ice per day. Without any doubt, despite being a light machine it has a powerful compressor that makes it a high-efficiency ice maker that has a 1.6 pounds ice storage capacity.

The control panel might not look as technological as other ice makers, but it is one of the most practical control panels. Despite the previous machine, instead of pushing a button to pop out the water sprout and then pushing another one to make the water run out of the spout, with this machine you just have to put the glass below the water faucet and press the water button if you want wanter and the ice button for ice just as simple as that!

You can add water through the 2-liter side water reservoir, it will give you the option to select 2 different ice sizes (large and small) and, one of the features that I like the most is the timer delay, which allows you to set it to start or stop after your set delay time, it is a very useful feature since you can set it so when you come back home you will have clear bullet-shaped ice cubes ready for use.

Well, this is a darn good portable ice maker with water dispenser, we found a few bad reviews and that’s great since it is more likely that consumers will give feedback about a product when they are disappointed than when they are happy with it.

The bad reviews found about this machine are about the ice size, a couple of consumers claimed that the bullet-shaped ice sizes are too small. Given the speed of the machine and unless the ice size is way too small I don’t think this issue would not stop me from purchasing it.


The KUPPET portable ice maker with water dispenser with bullet-shaped ice was created thinking all about efficiency, making it a pretty good solution for your drinks. This model is similar to the COSTWAY 24509US-SL-CYPE in its design in general.

This standalone ice machine can give you 26 pounds of ice per day, with a production rate of 9 bullet-shaped ice cubes every 6-13 minutes and an ice basket capacity of 1.3 pounds of ice.

Other ice makers can be difficult to use, you can get any ice machine to work but getting it to work efficiently is another thing, keeping in mind that ice-making can be noisy they took into count the noise reduction on this machine.

With the automatic shut-off capability, it can power off whenever there is no water and the ice sensor will stop it when the ice basket is full, this will help to avoid over freezing and build-ups.

Customer Reviews

Out of the three countertop ice makers reviewed in this article, this one is the best rated on amazon, which speaks very well of the product, but since nothing is perfect we will tell you what is the most common issue consumers complain about.

The few bad reviews on this machine were very random, talking about not having a waterline capability (which is not a defect) you just have to do your homework and make sure the countertop ice maker you choose has that capability, but going straight to the point, there were a couple of reviews talking about low ice production but most of the consumers were satisfied with the product in general.

In Conclusion

As stated in the introduction of the article, we will not tell you which one is the best instead, you will decide which is the best product for you based on your needs and likes.

But since we are experts on making your life easier we can tell you that if you want convenient to use and hassle less water feeding you can get a Northair HZB-22BF; if ice making speed is a deal-breaker for you we advise you to buy the COSTWAY 24509US-SL-CYPE, but if you just want consistency and quality the best one would be KUPPET HZB-12E. There you have our opinion, you just need to choose one and buy it.

Please let us know in the comment which one you bought and why!
