Versatile, Satisfying Nugget Ice

One of the most popular forms around, nugget ice is light, airy, chewable, slow-melting, and even retains some of the drink's flavor. Popularized by Scotsman machines through partnerships with well-known fast-food franchises, nugget ice enhances the overall drinking experience, dispenses reliably, and works well for many different types of applications.

Compact Size

You can rely on this combination ice and water dispenser to make the most of limited counter space or floor space when used with a dedicated equipment stand (sold separately). Its specially designed, contoured sides facilitate greater breathability in tight spaces and allow the use of an external air filter.

Integrated Antimicrobial Technology

The durable stainless steel evaporator and exterior panels ensure ease of sanitation, while greaseless bearings reduce the need for maintenance. In addition, the large, removable sink and grill, as well as the spacious dispensing area, make it easier to clean the hard-to-reach places. Plus, the antimicrobial material molded into key components lets you rest assured that your ice will be safe for consumption.

Convenient Maintenance

The Scotsman Meridian ice and water dispenser comes with intuitive features that ease the burden of keeping it up and running. For maintenance, take advantage of a built-in LED diagnostic light system, which is hidden behind the bin's front panel to maintain aesthetic appeal. The system will help to reduce service times, and there's also a convenient USB drive for quick software updates.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

Should I buy an air-cooled or water-cooled ice and water dispenser?
Air-cooled combination ice and water dispensers are the most common choice. They're more energy-efficient and use much less water than a water-cooled model. Unless you are replacing an existing water-cooled dispenser or are operating under very high ambient temperatures, you probably will want an air-cooled dispenser. It's a great idea to check what your existing dispenser is before placing your order so that the installation of the new one will go smoothly!
Does adding optional accessories impact the lead time on this product?
Yes. If optional accessories are added to this product, this product may require additional lead time. If you have any questions prior to ordering please contact Customer Solutions.
Why is a water filter automatically added to my cart with this item?
The use of poor quality feed water may void your equipment's warranty. Therefore, it’s important that your water be filtered to the highest quality and a compatible water filter will be included when you add this piece of equipment to your cart. You may remove the filter from the cart prior to purchase.
How long does it take this ice machine or ice bin to ship?
*Because this ice machine is stocked in WebstaurantStore warehouses, we are able ship orders placed before 12:00 PM EST on Monday through Friday within 4 hours. Due to carrier pick up schedules, any orders placed after that time will ship the following day. If the unit comes with both an ice machine and an ice bin, the two components will ship at the same time.
Will this ice machine meet my business’s ice demand?
Every business type has unique demands for ice. If you have any questions about how much ice you’ll need please reference our Types of Ice Machines buying guide.
My ice machine has been shut down, or not in use since the COVID-19 shutdowns, how should I restart it?
If your ice machine has been shut down or not in use for a prolonged period time, please reference your machine's user-manual for a restart procedure, often called “Winterization." Please reference your user manual or contact customer service with any questions.

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.
