Last week, Short Order extolled the virtues of the fabulous flake ice Scotsman Ice Machine C0322MA-1B. Today, we feature another extraordinary piece of restaurant equipment in the Scotsman ice machine category, a nugget icemaker, the Scotsman Ice Machine MDT6N90A-1H. This is an extremely reliable counter top ice machine even the emperor penguin would love to order for his Antarctic home.
This TouchFree® air and water cooled ice maker and dispenser comes with a shiny European design with rounded corners, produces up to 720 pounds of nugget ice in 24 hours and stores up to 90 pounds in the bin. That’s enough ice to nearly create a mini Antarctic iceberg, but you’ll probably be adding this ice to beverages, a salad bar or for restaurant cold display.
With 25 percent less fan noise, the MDT6N90A-1H machine is also very quiet, and documentation suggests it can be installed even in the “quietest hallways.” The TouchFree feature allows the user to dispense the ice with just one hand, keeping both machine and ice clean and sanitary. With dimensions of 35.19″W x 45.75″H x 29.25″D, this ice machine is big enough to power your cold, icy needs but small enough to remain unobtrusively out of the way.
Our editors give this machine a 5-Star rating because of its great efficiency, low-operating costs and long-term reliability. And of course, all Scotsman ice machines come with an impressive warranty.
If you’re looking for something a bit on the smaller side and one that dispenses flaked ice, rather than nugget ice, look no further than another of the remarkable TouchFree® ice makers, the Scotsman Ice Machine MDT3F12A-1H. With dimensions of 14″W x 34.25″H x 23.67″D, this compact and beautiful machine will fit almost any nook and cranny. This counter top ice machine also gets a 5-Star rating from Short Order and a friendly little wings-up from our penguin here too.
