Shopping for a quality ice machine in a convenient undercounter design? Scotsman’s slow-melting, crystal clear, mineral free, and odorless ice cube will ensure your customers have a refreshing drink in hand. Consider the Scotsman CU50 for energy efficiency and a simple design.

Scotsman is a leading name in the ice machine industry. In 2011, Scotsman won the Energy Star Award for Excellence in energy-efficient product design. Scotsman has been working to make your kitchen more energy efficient for over 60 years - saving you money in the long run.

The CU50 is a reliable undercounter. Scotsman’s Water-quality sensor will detect when the water filtering over the evaporator is too particulate laden and replaces it with new purer water. This process will increase time between cleanings by reducing scale buildup. When it is time for cleaning, the easy-to-use control panel will alert you to sanitize and descale. This Energy Star undercounter is a user friendly ice machine that works to simplify your job.

Scotsman CU50GA-1 - 50 lbs/day Undercounter Gourmet Ice Machine w/Storage - Air-Cooled is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ice maker This is a great ice maker. This is what Scotsman does so I knew I would have a well made unit. The super clear ice with no air bubbles is the best. It not only looks great but is very slow to melt in your drink due to the high density. Fit, finish, and function are second to none. The only drawback might be the sound of the ice falling into the bin as it is being made. That only exists as it is filling up so no big deal.
