There are a few Scotsman ice makers that are available to buy, and one of them is the Scotchman No-Melt ice maker. I was going through a tough time finding an ice maker that would fit in with my home decor as well as perform the functions that I needed. My wife especially, really likes to have them around the house for summer time fun. The last thing I want is to be outside on a cool Sunday afternoon and have to run an ice maker. When I found the Scotchman No- Melt ice maker, it was the perfect addition.
One of the things I like about Scotsman ice machines is that they can be adjusted to the exact temperature that I need. Most are made for a cooler room atmosphere. I wanted one that could handle the heat of our room as well. I did some research and discovered the air cooled Scotsman nugget ice makers are a great way to cool off your kitchen and drinks while keeping your drinks hot.
The Scotchman nugget ice maker has two adjustment dials on the side, one for low temperature and the other for high. This makes it very easy to switch between low and high without having to re-do the settings on the machine. The self-aligning front panel shows the temperature and the time left on the freezer. It also has three indicator lights, a power light, a water indicator light and a glass indicator light. All of these lights let you know what is going on with the machine.
The heating element has three settings: low, medium and high. I like the fact that the heating elements come with three years parts and are extremely durable. The large adjustment wheels make it easy to move the unit around and give you more access to the interior parts.
When the ice machines first came out the quality of the machine was questionable. They were cheaply made and even though they lasted for decades there was always the risk of them breaking down. These new models are constructed of much stronger materials and built to last many more years. The ice machines also use much less air than older models. These new models are about double the size of old Scotsman ice machines.
The ice-cube tray has two compartments and is included in the price of the unit. The model number is stamped directly onto the box, which makes it very easy to locate the right ice cube tray for the specific machine. There is also a storage bin inside the unit. The air cooling system uses a self-contained refrigeration system that takes in cold air from inside the storage bin and brings it to the exterior where it warms up and turns it into a drinkable ice.
The two-piece cube system allows you to make many different varieties of drinks including traditional Irish cream, buttermilk, rocky road, blueberry orangeade, lemonades, and sherbet. You can make your favorite flavors of ice with this great little ice maker. The two-piece design allows you to place the frozen cube inside the freezer before you even add the other ingredients. Once added, all you have to do is place the frozen cube into the dispenser and turn it on. The heating element is responsible for the melting process and once the desired temperature has been reached, you simply take the lid off and your drink is ready to be served.
This is one machine that not only make excellent Irish cream, but any other kind of ice you can think of. Plus gourmet tea, hot chocolate, and even cold drinks can be made from this versatile little ice machine. You can store the Scotsman nugget ice maker in a spot where it will be free from odors as well so that it is easily located and taken with you when you need it. The manufacturer recommends that the unit be placed in a cool and dry location and be kept away from dampness. This will prevent the unit from breaking down prematurely.
