Scotsman limits ‘ice machine of the future’ to a production run of 250 units

The Legacy icemaker

Scotsman has said it will only make 250 units of an ice machine that it claims will be the future of the category.

The Ali Group company said the Legacy model will test the market’s appetite for a high-concept ice machine and urged any operators wanting to get their hands on a unit to place an order quickly.

Scotsman said the self-contained icemaker features a variety of innovations, ranging from the materials it is made from to its internal components.

And while these innovations deliver significant benefits, not least in increased production capacity compared to the equivalent EC Scotsman machine, it believes the unit’s striking looks – black, sleek, glossy and contoured – will be the thing that really captures the imagination.

The Legacy is built using black stainless steel, a special alloy finish, and tempered glass. It combines a modern retro aesthetic with a 3D grid profile and will make a statement in any back bar or front of house setting.

The concave front improves the internal airflow, boosting production, while the high-performance insulation enhances operation.

Meanwhile the cutting-edge evaporator has been tested using the hardest waters and carries TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) verifications.

The Legacy is available using eco-friendly R290 refrigerant and, despite its compact size, it can make up to 44kg of gourmet supercube ice per day, 10% more than the equivalent EC model. It’s integral storage bin holds up to 19kg of ice.

The Legacy also features Scotsman’s XSafe, a special hygiene system that destroys viruses and bacteria as well as significantly reducing the formation of mould, yeast, mildew, slime and odours in icemakers.

“The Legacy is a truly exciting and innovative project that points the way for future icemaker design,” said David Rees, marketing manager of Hubbard Ice Systems, which distributes the Scotsman range in the UK.
