I am totally impressed with this company and how they worked through issues I had with my initial delivery on my ice machine. It was damaged and within 24 hrs they had informed me that they were sending out a replacement. I had plumber install but it was not working correctly. Read about troubleshooting in manual and was able to make adjusting accordingly and it is now producing great ice. For my coffee shop it will be perfect and I will continue to order from this website!! Thank you

Just tested my new ice machine last week. Works great, perfect match for small and medium sized restaurant. Installation takes some time, easy to clean.

I needed an ice machine that was low enough and slim enough to fit under my counter, so even if this machine had been awful, I still probably would have purchased it. That being said, it does the work just fine - I'm happy with the ice levels, though sometimes the ice can look a little melted. It does not come with an exterior scoop holster, and storing the scoops in the bin is frowned upon (or downright illegal, I'm not sure which) so that's something to consider as well.

Product arrived promptly, was packaged well for shipment. The third party shipper followed delivery instructions so there was no damage to the unit. Am happy with the purchase.

This is a nice new ice machine for us. It makes about 6 bags of ice per work shift. We bag the morning of a shift, during a shift and the end of the shift thru the week to have a nice supply for hot summer events. See pic attached of one of our drink containers with this lovely ice in it!

Great addition to our kitchen. Makes ice in no time. Does not use alot of room and keeps down the worry of not having ice on hand.

Purchased this ice machine and have absolutely no complaints. There have been no issues as far as performance. It could probably be a little quieter...but Im one of those people who wants something to work and not have any noise coming from it at all (you should talk to my husband about his nightmare of appliance choices in our kitchen remodel and me wanting absolutely whisper quiet appliances!). Other than that, I cannot complain. It works as it should and makes ice as advertised lol

This Scotsman CU0715MA-1 air-cooled undercounter ice machine is an excellent product for light-duty use. It can produce up to 80 pounds of ice per day, while also storing 36 pounds of ice in its bin. This self-contained unit has a small footprint, making it perfect for low-volume cafes, delis, food kiosks, and break rooms that don't have much front-of-house space. This machine’s door also slides upward instead of left or right, so you don’t have to account for extra space on either side of the unit.

Over all I,m satisfied with the Ice maker. The set up and instillation was easy. I would prefer the top of the machine be a little more heavy duty, but that's not a deal breaker.

The ice machine has worked perfectly for six months, since I have purchased it. I use it mostly to provide ice for ice buckets in rooms. With ten rooms, we have not run out of ice, even during the hot summer months. The ice does come out in approximately 4"x4" sheets, but it easily breaks apart. The machine is a bit noisy, as I have it in the kitchen. The water filling process is noisier than the ice dropping down.

Very cute and small size but very good quality. I dont have any problem about this machine, keep producing the ice fast. I put on my restaurant for 55 people occupancy.
Esther S. from Little Lotus Posted on 10/27/2015
Seems to be a functional unit after 2 months no real problems, however... it is loud, like a low end dish washer, and since it appears to have minimal insulation for the ice compartment, the ice melts relatively quickly requiring it to be on often. Additionally, to access the on/off switch (I turn it off when I leave for the weekend) you have to unscrew the front panel, seems a little silly to me. On a positive note, it easily produces enough ice for a family of five and has a huge bin for enough extra ice for when my wife throws parties on the weekend (20-30 people four to six hours).

This is our second ice machine at our busiest location. Half the size of the previous machine, heads and tails above our previous machines. Good Quality!

This IMI Cornelius CCU0150AH1 Nordic air-cooled undercounter ice machine can produce up to 175 pounds of ice daily, and it is the best choice for use in high-temperature establishments. It comes packed with series-specific features that enhance its durability and usability. For example, its special “Harvest Assist” technology dislodges cubes from the evaporator with a probe rather than running water to reduce clumping and lower utility costs. It also utilizes an oversized condenser that doesn’t require an air filter, which eliminates the need to change clogged filters. This feature allows it to function well in hot temperatures, as well.

Nice little ice maker. small enough to fit under the bar and light enough to go on top of a counter. keeps up decently and easy to clean.
Christina L. from CMV Posted on 07/23/2016
This ice machine is great for any small restaurant. It produces enough ice for an entire day and keeps up during dinner service. Great for BOH and FOH use.

For an ice machine that makes small batches of soft nugget ice, go with this Manitowoc RNS-0385A air-cooled undercounter ice machine. It produces up to 300 pounds of ice per day and can store premade ice in its 88 pound capacity bin. Since this unit is the only one that doesn’t make full-size cubes, it’s the best choice for your small healthcare facility, physical therapy office, low-volume smoothie bar, or other establishment where softer ice is required.

We were looking for an ice machine that could keep up with demand and this unit produces more ice in the same time and space as traditional cubed ice. It also uses less water (less run off) which is a huge plus in our dry state. We weren't sure if the ice would work as well in our blended drinks, but with a minor adjustment to our calibration and blend time, ITS PERECT!
