Why should I buy a Scotsman Ice Maker?


In just 15 inches of space below your counter, a Scotsman Ice Maker will create odorless, taste-free, crystal-clear ice on demand. For those of you who don’t think about the quality of your ice, think again. Whether you are enjoying a premium cocktail with your friends or making a fun drink with the kids, a key ingredient in your beverage is always ice and the quality of that ice actually does make a difference in your drink experience.

Scotsman introduced the Original Chewable Ice® to the foodservice industry back in 1981 and made that same quality of ice available for homes in 1995, with the introduction of their Brilliance® Nugget Ice. The Scotsman Ice Maker delivers ice that is soft, compact and chewable, which allows the ice to absorb the beverage’s flavor to enhance the beverage experience. This ice is perfect for soft or blended drinks, smoothies, food displays and every day uses.

Ice for the purist!

Scotsman’s Legacy and Brilliance® Gourmet Cuber ice makers offer unique features. Both take up just 15” of cabinet space and can be seamlessly integrated into your space by ordering your model to accept a custom cabinet panel. Both offer the unique cube shape, which won’t clump or dilute your drinks. So, what is the difference between the two models?

The Legacy Gourmet Cuber Model DCE33 produces up to 30 lbs. of gourmet ice in 24 hours. It maintains ideal bin capacity with automatic shut-off and restart. This model can be ordered to accept custom wood panels to match your cabinetry.

Scotsman Ice Maker - Brilliance® Cuber Model SCC30

The Brilliance® Cuber Model SCC30 also provides 30 lbs. of gourmet ice in 24 hours. The front panel can be ordered with the Scotsman front panel kit or unfinished to accept custom cabinet wood panel. The major difference is that it uses less water and energy than the Legacy model.

The Brilliance® Cuber Model SCC50 is the most advanced model, providing up to 65 lbs. of gourmet ice in 24 hours and also uses less water and energy than the Legacy model. It can accommodate your cabinet panel to seamlessly integrate into the environment. However, this model is also available in an outdoor stainless steel version to enhance your outdoor entertaining.

What makes Scotsman Ice Makers unique?

Scotsman Ice Systems pioneered the development of affordable, reliable ice-making machines in the 1950s. They were the creators of the original nugget ice (which became ubiquitous in soft drinks in fast-food and fine dining restaurants across the U.S.). After over a half-century of research and innovation, there are more than a million Scotsman ice machines around the world in more than 100 countries. As an American manufacturer, Scotsman became ISO certified in 2001, and every ice maker is end-of-line tested and must produce ice before it leaves the factory. In 2006, Scotsman was named “Top Manufacturer in the USA,” by Industry Week magazine. Scotsman has led the residential ice maker industry since 2011.

Scotsman has a long history of providing reliable ice makers to home and industry.
