Scotsman Ice Featuring Russell Davis

Russell Davis from Bar Rescue explains the importance of ice in a cocktail. Learn about the different types of ice and the part Scotsman ice machines play in making ideal ice for your cocktails.

Equip your bar or restaurant with all the essentials, including an undercounter ice machine! These space-saving machines are designed to be placed underneath countertops so they won't get in the way of your busy bartenders and servers at work. Our selection of undercounter ice machines will help you keep up with high demand by producing dozens to even hundreds of lbs. of ice in a single day! We offer two types of condensers - air cooled or water cooled. You need at least 6" of clearance around air intake and discharge areas with an air cooled unit, but these machines are the most cost-effective. If you only have the space for water cooled ice machines, just keep in mind that water consumption will be higher than it would be with an air cooled unit. The ice machines will also produce different styles of ice cubes. Often times, this comes to a matter of preference, but there are certain types of ice cubes that work better for certain places. For example, cubelet ice and flake ice is easier to chew, making it better for healthcare applications. Full size ice cubes melt more slowly, which your guests are sure to appreciate!

If a malfunction occurs, a machine must be back in service fast. A special feature of Prodigy ice machines assures that problems are quickly found and corrected. When a machine is making ice normally, the function lights in the upper left-hand corner are out. However, when a problem arises—like in this case where there is a problem with the water fill--a status light blinks red and the machine shuts down. The water solenoid valve automatically opens and tries to refill the reservoir. If it succeeds, the warning light goes out and the cycle continues. The controller will repeat water fill attempts every 20 minutes until successful or until a manual intervention. If these attempts fail, the machine remains shut down and the front panel must be removed to find the source of the problem. This reveals the controller that can guide the technician to the cause of the problems. If the machine were working properly, the code display would show 1 of 3 codes. F shows a free cycle is underway. H shows that the harvest cycle is on. B shows a full bin of ice is ready. However, now the display shows a number 3, telling the technician that there is a slow water fill. At this point, he might want to know if this problem has happened before. He can find this information out by pressing the off button for 3 seconds and then repeatedly pressing the manual harvest button that shows, in sequence, the previous problems. In this case, the recent problems have been slow water fill which is shown by repeated a repeated code 3. For the sake of illustration, the technician could also see any other problems that the machine had in the past. For example, if code 1 appeared, it would indicate a past problem with slow freeze time. A code 2 would represent a slow harvest time. A code 4 would be a high discharge temperature. A code 5 would be a temperature sensor failure. A code 7 would be a discharge temperature sensor failure and code 8 would be a short freeze cycle. In this case, however, the problem is slow water fill, so the technician reads the indicator lights that show which components are operating at any stage of any cycle. In this case, he may press "on" to start the initial startup cycle. In the starting stage, the water pump light, the purge valve light, the water solenoid light, the sump empty light, and the curtain switch light come on. The water pump light shows that the water pump is working. The purge valve light shows a purging reservoir. The water solenoid light shows that the machine is trying to refill the reservoir. The sump empty light indicates an empty reservoir and the curtain switch light shows that the curtain is closed. The technician now begins zeroing in on a cause. First, he makes sure of adequate water pressure and then checks each component to verify that they are all working. In this case, he may find a water solenoid that needs replacing. In the same way, the indicator lights can lead him through every stage of every cycle. The technician sees which components should be operating which enables him to quickly find and correct the source of any problem. The result is that the technician has a diagnostic path leading to the right solution in quick time! Added up, the leading qualities of Prodigy ice machines have a longer and trouble-free service at a lower cost with greater flexibility, starting with the stingiest energy consumption in the industry that translates into lower utility costs. A control panel with auto indicator lights that signal the need for service before emergencies arise and point the way to early solutions. Water sends automatic adaptive purge controls to fight scale buildup, earning longer intervals between scale removals. An optional ultra-sonic ice level control reduces ice levels in the bin, ensuring fresh, easy-to-handle ice. An optional Prodigy smart board advanced controls display data on-scene or transmitting to a remote computer for early alert and fast diagnosis of operating issues. The same control, paired with the very smart ice level control, can be programmed to match ice levels to varying day-to-day needs with no monitoring needed. Plus, there's an optional Smart-Lock remote lockout control that enables leasing companies to switch the machine on and off to encourage timely lease payments. Introducing the Prodigy line of cube ice machines--easy to service, repair, and maintain. Recommend Scotsman ice machines to customers with confidence. They'll love the performance and you'll love how simple it is to accurately diagnose and fix problems. Get ready to think smart! The Prodigy is here.

The ice system requires 3 types of maintenance. They are scale removal, sanitizing, and filter and condenser cleaning. To remove scale, remove the evaporator cover of the harvest and push the "clean" button which drains and refills the reservoir. Then, circulate Scotsman's scale remover for at least 10 minutes. Push and release the "clean" button to drain and refill the reservoir for at least 20 minutes to purge the cleaner and residue. When done, push the "off" button. Then, remove the curtain, the ice-thickness sensor and the water distributor, making sure all distributor holes are open. Wash all of these parts with a solution of scale remover and water. Do the same thing with the water level sensor. Then, thoroughly wash these components in a solution of sanitizer and return them to their original positions. Using the same solution, wash the inside of the freezing compartment, including the evaporator cover and right-side panel. Push and hold the "clean" button to drain the reservoir. Push and release the "clean" button again, and when the "purge valve" indicator light goes out, immediately pour the remainder of the solution into the reservoir and let it circulate for 10 minutes. Then, push and release the "clean" and let the machine drain and repeatedly refill the reservoir for at least 20 minutes to purge the sanitizer and residue. When you're done, push the "off" button. Finally, reinstall the evaporator cover and front panel. To resume ice making, push and release the "on" button. As a last step, pull the reusable air filter from the side panel. Wash it using a mild detergent and reinsert it into the side panel. We strongly recommend never operating the machine without a filter except when cleaning. The condenser itself can be cleaned only by a refrigeration technician.

What we're gonna do here, guys, is I wanna introduce you guys to Scotsman ice machines and what they're doing. People don't realize how important of an ingredient ice is in the cocktail. So the cocktail is an American invention, okay? It was invented in 1806, it's a defined term. So when you think about the culinary world, Japan's known for sushi, the French are known for their culinary techniques, and then America's known for being the inventors of the cocktail. And the cocktail is defined in 1806 as sugar, water, spirit, and bitters. And one of the most important ingredients of the cocktail is the water. Now what's the water? It's the ice, guys. So the ice is the most important ingredient that goes into a cocktail. If you think about it, what is the one ingredient that's in every cocktail? Ice. So ice is specifically very important and Scotsman's been around since 1921 as far as making ice machines and for 50 years they've been in the residential aspect of this, and they've really perfected what they're doing. So I really enjoy being able to work with them on this. And I'm gonna show you a couple of different kinds of ice cubes and we'll make a couple cocktails. We have a couple of different types of ice cubes that we're working with here. First, is this nugget ice. You guys all know what this is right? Everybody that's been to Sonic. This is a very iconic ice. Now when we make cocktails and when we're doing this, we're trying to make sure that we take you to a place. A cocktail is a visceral experience, it's a piece of my heart whenever I make it for you. Now what's amazing about this ice is that no one else can do this ice. This ice, it takes on flavor, it seeps in the flavor, and so it actually holds flavor so that you are able to kind of chew it up after. It is the original chewable ice. Okay guys, the other style of ice that we are doing is the original cubed ice. Beautiful, colorless, flavorless, crystal clear ice cube, right? Pretty damn sexy. Cool, yeah? It's alright to say yes. So I'm really lucky to be working with these guys, it's such an iconic ice that's been around since 1921. They have perfected the residential market for the past 50 years and they're just killing it. Killer company, killer people, and they have a killer product. So when you think of the most important ingredient that's in a cocktail it's the ice. The ice goes into every single cocktail, right? Even more than any other ingredient that's behind the bar. Besides my love.
