The front panel of the Maytag Skybox lights up and can be customized by adding different graphic panels. The side panels of the machine are also customizable, but are not back-lit. There are four beverage selection buttons beneath the front panel, and each button can be labeled with one of the 20 included beverage cards.

Drinks are stored and cooled inside the top section of the Skybox and dispensed below the beverage selection buttons. A matching base with extra room-temperature storage space is sold separately. The unit can be locked, and individual selections can be made unavailable for dispensing. There is an indicator light for low beverage levels and jams, and the unit does not dispense while the door is ajar.

Reviews of the Maytag Skybox are mixed, with the dispenser receiving 3.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon.com. Some reviewers warn that the Skybox doesn't cool drinks properly and jams often. Others praise the aesthetics of the unit, say there are no problems with dispensing and state that unit keeps beverages at an appropriate temperature.
