The Ice-O-Matic ICEU070 Undercounter Ice Maker is highly sought after for its gourmet style ice cubes and its compact design. The Ice-O-Matic ICEU070 is a self-contained, air-cooled model that produces up to 84 pounds of clear gourmet ice every 24 hours (under optimal temperature conditions of 70 degrees F air and 50 degrees F water). The Ice-O-Matic ICEU070 is just over 34 inches tall (without legs attached). With its narrow 15-inch wide design and built-in storage bin with a capacity of 24 pounds, the Ice-O-Matic ICEU070 can be installed in nearly any space, including under commercial counters. Note that with the legs attached, the ICEU070 ice maker is 39.5 inches tall.
The requirements for the ICEU070's installation location are a standard 115-volt electrical outlet (the ICEU070 comes with its own cordset, so it is "plug-and-play"), a potable incoming water line for making ice, and an external drain for runoff water that is purged at the end of the ice-making process (either a floor gravity drain or a drain pump).
The clear, gourmet ice produced by the Ice-O-Matic ICEU070 is crystal clear, cylindrical "shot glass" style ice. The Gourmet ice measures 1 1/4 inches high and 1 1/8 inches wide, so it is a large form of ice. A typical beverage will only require 2 to 4 of the Gourmet cubes to keep it chilled. Gourmet ice is hard and melts more slowly than other ice types. This translates to less dilution of the liquid it is cooling. Therefore, it makes the perfect compliment to high-end beverages, such as "on-the-rocks" drinks. Many executive suites and bar applications are ideally suited for the Ice-O-Matic ICEU070 and its gourmet ice.
