Ice is something that a lot of people are very particular about. Some are hardcore cube fans whereas others need their ice crushed. And if you’re one of those people who prefers that very specific bullet-shaped ice, you’re in luck. You can now get “the good ice” at home any time you want it thanks to the countertop ice maker sale at Costco. 

The Frigidaire Ice Maker is the ultimate kitchen accessory for anyone who won’t drink cold beverages without ice. It can make up to 26 pounds of ice in 24 hours, starts making ice in under 10 minutes after turning it on, and makes that perfect bullet-shaped ice you crave in two different sizes. 

It’s compact enough to fit snugly on your counter and features an automatic cleaning mode, but reviewers say you should still clean it by hand regularly to prevent any mold from growing.

It’s perfect for daily drinks, but even better when you’re hosting a crowd. You can make ice ahead of time and store it in your freezer to ensure you’ll always have a full ice bucket ready to go.

“​​Purchased for Thanksgiving,” one person commented on the Costco Buys Instagram post. “We love it! Makes small and large bullet-shaped ice.” Another added, “I bought one over a year ago and it’s great. Easy to clean, fits on my counter, and makes ice in no time.”

The Frigidaire Ice Maker is a Costco in-store exclusive and not available on, but you can shop the Frigidaire Ice Maker on Amazon for only a few extra dollars. It features a slightly different design and comes in four different colorways. Apartment Therapy’s Shopping Director, Jada Wong, tested this exact Frigidaire one and says it’s great, which makes it a really sound alternative if the Costco is unavailable to you.

The Frigidaire works for picky ice eaters and hosts alike, and it’ll be a game-changer on days when you’re in the mood for something ice cold.
