Is this available in panel-ready style, for custom panels, to match cabinetry?

Asked by: JudyL
No, we only carry the SM-50 with the stainless steel looking front. Manitowoc does not advertise that they have an option for a custom finish.

Does the SM-50A make clear ice cubes? Also I have a gravity drain, so I probably don't need the pump, is that correct?

Asked by: Jerry B
The clearness of an ice cube largely depends on your water quality, but with the right filtration this will produce clear cubes. Also, the cubes from the SM-50A are not actually cubes, you can see them on Manitowoc's website: You are correct, if you have a drain available that the machine can drain into, you would not need the pump.

 Is it made in USA

Asked by: booboo
Unfortunately, no. While the evaporators and several other components may be made here, most of the production takes place in Mexico or China.
