Scotsman builds 250 limited edition high-concept ice machines

Scotsman Legacy ice machine

Scotsman has unveiled its Legacy at the Host 2021 with a concept that the company believes shows the future of ice machines.

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

These innovations are designed to deliver benefits such as an increased production capacity compared to the equivalent EC Scotsman machine, as well as a striking look – black, sleek, glossy and contoured.

Scotsman is using the Legacy to test the market’s appetite for a high-concept ice machine. Consequently, it is a limited edition, as only 250 machines will be built.

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 for deployment in any back bar or front of house setting.

The advanced construction materials should ensure this is a robust machine that is built to last. The concave front improves the internal airflow, boosting production, while the high-performance insulation is designed to enhance 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 can make up to 44kg of gourmet supercube ice per day, 10% more than the equivalent EC model (the EC86). Its integral storage bin holds up to 19kg of ice.

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