This bestselling portable ice maker can be yours for a cool $78

'I love the compact size,' raved one of this countertop appliance's thousands of fans.

Love iced coffee? Can’t drink a Coke without at least a few ice cubes floating in your glass? Or maybe the unofficial start of summer has you daydreaming about daiquiris on the deck. (Yes, please!) But let's be honest — those flimsy ice trays we keep in our fridges are the worst. The ice is hard to get out without a good whack against the counter, and by the time it does release, the tray is probably bent and/or cracked. Luckily, Walmart has a markdown on a gadget designed to eliminate this very situation: the bestselling Ionchill Quick Cube Ice Machine is down to $78 (from $102). So get your cart ready — you'll want to grab this deal before it melts away.

This appliance might be compact, but it can produce ice cubes faster than traditional freezers.

This is one of the lowest-priced ice makers we're seeing at Walmart, and the fact that it's a bestseller with thousands of perfect ratings sets it apart from the rest. Plus, time is money, which this speed demon will save you lots of.

Just how fast is this ice maker? Well, it can make nine ice cubes in just nine minutes, so ... pretty darn fast! And, thanks to its large water reservoir, it can produce up to 26 pounds of ice in one day. Oh, and according to the brand, it’s surprisingly quiet when it’s in action.

Made of stainless steel, this is a stylish addition to any kitchen countertop or outdoor cooking space. (It has a handle so you can even bring it to cookouts or campsites.) Aesthetics aside, it boasts a self-cleaning feature (you've gotta love that) and comes with a scooper, and its user-friendly design means all you have to do is fill it with water, turn it on and presto!

The Ionchill has melted the hearts of over 2,500 Walmart customers.

"Perfect countertop ice maker!" exclaimed one fan. "I love the compact size, it doesn't take up a lot of counter space and it makes ice really quickly! I really like that it is quiet, I can barely hear it."

"It was easy to set up and the kids got a kick out of watching it dump the ice," shared another. "I do not want to buy a bag of ice for every holiday. So much waste. So this little machine was the perfect solution. It makes a lot of ice!"

"We bought it for our RV, since we always seem to need more ice when camping," explained a third. "Who likes to get ice for your drink from the ice chest that everything else is in? Not me! This works great! I may get another for my kitchen so I don't have to take it in and out for camping trips. I have been using it to fill up gallon zipper bags and putting them in my freezer in prep for our ice chest for July 4th!"

"The only downside, in my opinion, is that it doesn't have an insulated ice tray, so the ice melts while you don't use it," wrote an otherwise pleased buyer. "Other than that, it's super cool and I totally recommend it."

"Make sure it always has water," noted a final fan. "If it has to tell you, it's a bit of a challenge to reset. Most times I unplug, then start over."

Cheers to not drinking lukewarm beverages this summer!
