Is a portable ice maker a good idea?  Any recommendations for brand/model?

Have any of you purchased a portable ice maker for your house? My refridgerator has a built-in ice maker, but it can't really keep up when the house is fully occupied and the weather is hot.   I would really like to install one of those under-the counter models, but I don't have the space in the main kitchen, so a portable sounds like a good compromise.


If you have one and like it, I'd love to hear the brand or model and whether your guests can figure out how to use it.

    NO!  I've had fairly rotten luck with them. They are expensive to fix and frequently break.  Plus, if they are in there, the guests expect them to work.  Some of the condos had them installed when they were first built and now they are sitting there taken up a space in the design of the counter unused.
