The Scotsman CU0715MA-1 is a self-contained, air-cooled ice maker that produces 80 pounds of crystal clear, Full Cube style ice every 24 hours (under optimal temperature conditions of 70 degrees F air and 50 degrees F water). The CU0715MA-1 undercounter ice machine is only 15 inches wide and the unit has a built-in storage bin with a capacity of 36 pounds.
When considering if the Scotsman CU0715MA-1 is a good fit, note that the unit is just 32 inches tall with legs removed and with the available ADA compliance kit (sold separately) installed. This means the ice machine can fit under most counters in compliance with ADA standards. When the standard 6" legs (included) are attached, the CU0715MA-1 reaches up to 37.6 inches tall. Therefore, the unit will still fit under 39" counters. Per the manufacturer, you will need 4" of clearance at the back of the ice maker for electrical and water connections.
The Scotsman CU0715MA-1's potential installation location requires a 115-volt electrical source, an incoming water line, and an external drain. The Scotsman CU0715MA-1 requires a drain for any unfrozen water that is purged at the end of the ice-making process, plus for any melted ice in the bin. The drain can be a gravity drain or a condensate drain pump at the back of the unit. If using a pump, prepare for additional space at the back of the ice maker.
Scotsman has designed the CU0715MA-1 to produce crystal clear, hard and long-lasting Full Cube ice. Therefore, the Scotsman CU0715MA-1 would be an ideal selection for use in bar applications, particularly for "on-the-rocks" beverages. Since the Full Cube melts more slowly, there is less dilution of the drink.
Note: The Scotsman CU0715MA-1 uses only 30 gallons of water and 11 kWH electricity for every 100 LB of ice it produces.
