Meet Opal

Opal is the ice maker that’s designed for your life, with a broad range of features that make it easy 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.

FirstBuild is a co-creation community that is changing the way products come to market by letting a community influence the product from the very beginning. Backed by GE Appliances, we have access to world-class engineering and design talent.

Opal could not have been possible without countless contributions from community members who share our vision for superior ice. FirstBuild’s development of Opal started with an idea submission by Alan Mitchell. Ismael Ramos’ challenge entry made Opal into a beautiful and functional product that real people will use.
