Summertime, and the livin' is easy with a cold refreshing drink in hand

On hot summer's day, there’s nothing like an icy cold drink to quench your ravenous thirst.

Scotman Makes drinks cool

Summers on the way so we all love a cold drink with swirling ice cubes chinking your glass.

With another Scorching summer Predicted Are you ready? Are you sure?

As the temperature starts to soar. Are you starting to panic as you just remember how your Ice Maker was struggling to cope last summer?

It's too late as the sun belting down on another blistering summer & you realise your Ice maker was not going to keep up with your demand for icy cold drinks.

When you give your customers, a drink swamped with glistering ice you put a smile on their face.

Don't get caught rationing Ice like it's on a diet, because you can't make enough Ice.

Don’t fret with Scotsman Ice Machine you will never get caught short without ice.

Scotsman has been on the cutting edge of ice machine technology since introducing their first crystal-clear, slow-melting ice cube in 1950.

SCOTSMAN EC206 PWDA Ice Maker with Drain Pump

They have sold over a 1 million Ice Making Machines.

Before you rush out to get an Ice Maker, you need to decide what type of ice you want to serve.

Ice comes in loads of shapes, sizes and varieties, each with its own application.

Gourmet Ice

For Scotch on the rocks or a perfect G&T you want the best looking ice, with the slowest melt rate, and that has to be the gourmet Gourmet Ice.

SCOTSMAN Gourmet Ice

Crystal clear, pure, hard and long lasting ice cubes. Individually formed by spraying water onto a subcooled horizontal evaporator.

Its fast cooling action and slow dilution make drinks chilled for a long time.

Available in three different sizes and weights to meet any requirement regarding ease of use and quality results.

The Gourment Ice is regarded as the very best ice but, because it is so hard, it’s murder on blenders (and customers' ears).

If you’re making crushed ice for cocktails, blended drinks or food display, and want to use Gourmet Ice, then you need a Scotsman,

Dice Ice

If you’re after big volumes of ice fast, then dice or half-dice cubes are ideal.


Classic six sides ice cube. Its greater surface for heat exchange allows a fast chilling of all drinks.

The vertical evaporator technology of this ice cube guarantees large ice production at lower operating costs. Available in several different sizes.

They still look attractive, but are also practical and are ideal in venues which have high peaks in demand, such as bigger pubs, event catering and in fast food outlets.

Dice and half-dice cubes are also softer than the Supercube, so they’re gentler on blender blades for crushed ice in smoothies and iced coffee.

It’s crystal clear and longer lasting, so it’s perfect for presentation drinks, such as Scotch on the rocks.

It's also a softer ice cube, so it's ideal for blended drinks, such as cocktails or café frappé,

since the softer cube is gentler on blender blades.

Its versatility makes it a truly all-round cube!

Nugget & Cubelet Ice

Cubelet and nugget ice "cubes" are incredibly versatile. Made from compacted flake ice, so production is fast, they can be used for all sorts of purposes, including chilling drinks, foodcdisplay and blending.

SCOTSMAN Cubelet and nugget Ice

Compressed flake ice available in two different types: Nugget, regular micro-cubes and Cubelet, irregular chips. Nugget & Cubelet are suitable for multiple uses and are the fastest moving ice-type in QSR applications in the last few years.

Excellent when used with carbonated drinks as well as smoothies and perfect for food and plates display.

Long lasting ice, easy to use, high and fast displacement and no manipulation need are the success reasons of this type of ice.

Scotsman offers a wide range of cubelet ice dispensers.

All are ideal for self-serve or bottomless drinks.

Flake Ice

For Scotch on the rocks or a perfect G&T you want the best looking ice, with the slowest melt rate, and that has to be the gourmet Gourmet Ice.


Ice in its most natural shape, it is made at a temperature just below zero degrees Celsius.

Highly versatile and suitable for multiple applications: fish display counters, buffet display, frozen drinks preparation as well as fast chilling of wine & champagne buckets.

It comes in two different variations: Flake with 25% residual water content and Super Flake with 15% residual water content

Flake ice is ideal for keeping delicate perishables such as fish chilled, as it's gentle and effective. Scotsman flake machines produce the ice fast.

Flake ice has a high water content and melts quite quickly.


25% residual water content

Scale Ice

Scale Ice is Scotsman’s coldest and is only used in big commercial applications, such as on trawlers for fish storage.


The ice is formed at temperatures down to -12°C and is also used in food processing and for supermarket display. Scotsman offers scale ice systems making ice from either fresh or saltwater, for marine use.

With less than 2% residual water content, it's dry, and it’s the coldest form of ice.

It’s made by irregular fragments of ice with a variable thickness that can be adjusted between 1 to 2 mm.

Ideal for industrial processes, for fish and seafood display and perishable goods transportation, as well as to optimise dough temperature.Versatile, moulding at any shape, melts at a slow and regular rate to keep food at maximum freshness

No More Smelly Stagnant Drains

The Scotsman solves the biggest problem with Ice Makers, lack of drainage. The EC & EF models now come PWD Water Drain Pump, so there's no need to install an expensive floor drain.

SCOTSMAN PWD - Progressive Water Discharge

PWD - Progressive Water Discharge is the smart, pressurized discharge system

It allows you to reach remote water drains so you can dispose of the left over water at the end of each production cycle.

Also any water caused from your ice melting over time in the storage bin.

Install your ice maker just where you need it, up to 12 metres away, and as low as 1.2 metres lower than your actual drain outlet.

You'll have all the Ice, when you need it with a Scotsman
