There are more than 65 ENERGY STAR Scotsman ice machine models, and there are few that conserve resources the way that ice machines from Scotsman's Prodigy® Series do. The technology and design of Scotsman's Prodigy ice machines allow these units to create ice while using significantly less energy and water than traditional ice machines. With their optional controls, you can program the ice machine to make ice at any time you need it. With these controls at your finger tips, it makes a difference to the environment as well as your bottom line. Since ice will not be made when it is not required, you will save even more by conserving energy and water resources. Your customers will also benefit from the fresher ice as well, as it will not sit as long in the bin before being used or served. Scotsman has truly thought about the end user and their business. We detailed this further in the article "Scotsman Ice Machines- Less to Own, Less to Operate", so you can get a grasp on exactly what a new Scotsman ice machine can mean to your business.

Over time, a Scotsman ice machine or ice maker dispenser is going to make good business sense, as long as you maintain proper care and service of your equipment. This means having proper filtration systems on your water supply and regular cleanings. As Scotsman's optional Smart Board control panel allows you to program your unit to produce ice when you need it (and turn off when you don't), you can place less less wear on the equipment over time, and make your investment last even longer. The fact that Scotsman ice machines use less electricity and water also means you will save more money over time. Scotsman is just a great choice for your bottom line.

Scotsman CU50GA-1 Gravity Drain, 65 lb Gourmet Ice Machine
A Real Machine - I have bought the DCE33 machines in the past 3 years. This CU50 is the real deal. When you open the door you just can tell this is a commercial machine. It makes ice twice as fast as my prior machine. I am very happy with this machine and it was worth spending a little more money!

Scotsman MDT3F12A-1H Ice Maker Dispenser
Great Machine - This machine was just what I was looking for. It makes the perfect ice for what I do. I am a physical therapist and I need to ice my patients everyday. You can form the ice to the person and that's what I like the most. I used to use ice pads but they just wouldn't cut it. This was the best investment that I have made. The only thing that bothered me was that the storage bin is a little too small. Thanks for all your help.

Scotsman C0530SR-1A Remote Air Cooled 500 Lb Small Cube Ice Machine
This remote air cooled ice machine from Scotsman has the ability to produce up to 500 pounds of small ice cubes a day. It is from Scotsman's Prodigy line of ice machines, which, as we mentioned above, use less water and energy than similar, competitor's ice machines. With a remote air cooled condenser, ice production rates will be higher and more consistent than with standard air cooled units. With the condenser moved outside or away from the building, your business's interior will also not be bothered by the standard noise associated with a loud condenser, or the hot air released from the vents into the surrounding area.
Prodigy models like the C0530MR are programmable when equipped with Scotsman's optional Vari-Smart ice level control enabling you to keep ice stocked at ideal levels at all times. They allow users to program ice production up to seven days in advance so the freshest ice is always on hand. The C0530MR produces small or half-sized ice cubes, perfect for mixed and soft drinks. The small cubes also provide a high liquid displacement, so you will to use less product (soda syrup, alcohol), and realize greater profits with every beverage sold.
