The ice maker that’s designed for your life
With a broad range of features, it's not hard to see why FirstBuild made this product easy to use and convenient to enjoy. Opal is smart enough to know when to start and stop making ice. It’s equipped with a sensor that will identify the fill level of the bucket to turn the ice maker on and off. Just like in any cooler, ice will slowly melt within the air-insulated bucket. Opal will automatically turn on to make sure that the bucket is refilling with ice.
The Good Ice: anytime, anywhere
Opal only does one thing: make chewable, craveable nugget ice. But it does a really good job at that one thing. Opal is an ice maker designed for the enthusiasts: people who drop by their favorite restaurant on the weekend to pick up a bag of that special soft ice or have googled “nugget ice maker for home” only to find that home nugget ice makers start at $2000 - $3000.

How does Opal make nugget ice?
Traditional ice makers freezes water into a hard ice cube. Opal nugget ice is made by scraping the ice flakes off the inside of a chilled stainless steel cylinder. The flakes are extruded through a round hole, compacting them into chewable nuggets similar to a snowball.
How big is Opal?
Opal's exterior dimensions are 10.5" wide x 15.5" deep x 17.25" tall. Opal was designed to be stored under standard height kitchen cabinets. If you are planning to install Opal on your kitchen countertop, we suggest that you measure the distance from your countertops to the bottom of your cabinets to determine fit.
Can I install Opal in a cabinet?
Opal can be installed in a cabinet as long as adequate clearance is allowed for airflow around the sides and back of the unit. We suggest clearances of 3" around the sides and back of Opal. Note that if Opal is installed in an enclosed cabinet, the rate of icemaking will be reduced due to higher temperatures within the cabinet.
