Product Details

Would "Nugget” ice by any other name still taste as sweet? Actually, it wouldn’t taste like anything. The best ice has no flavor whatsoever – just pure and simple ice. And no matter whether you call it nugget, pearl, pellet or “sonic,” there’s something special about the soft and chewable texture of pearl ice that’s got nothing to do with the name. 

Perfect for smoothies, cool summer drinks, cocktails, carbonated beverages and more, the unique texture adds a decorative touch to any beverage and even displaces more liquid than cube ice. Ideal for smaller applications, the 85 lb Self-Contained Ice Machine (GEMU090) by Ice-O-Matic makes pure, nuggetl ice in a sleek, compact undercounter machine. 


  • A built in scoop holder on this machine prevents the spread of germs to ice.
  • No extra space? At only 15” wide, it’s powerful and petite enough to fit just about anywhere.
  • This machine operates so quietly – you can even install it in the front-of-the-house
  • Should something go wrong with your nugget ice machine, you’ll be covered by a two year parts and labor warranty

Take advantage of an exciting opportunity to extend the evaporator warranty on your new Ice-O-Matic cube ice machine. Simply add the IFQ1 water filter from Ice-O-Matic and replace it every six months to extend the evaporator warranty to an incredible seven years, parts and labor.

Customer Reviews

85 lb Self-Contained Pearl Ice Machine is rated 4.7778 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sonic Ice in your own home!! This is a great ice machine. It started making ice before installation was even finished. Started making ice about 15 minutes after being plugged in and water connected. Its not very loud when making or dropping ice either. If you end up needing to add the pump because you can't gravity drain then it gets a little noisier but it really isn't too bad and the pump doesn't run all the time only when needed. The shipment arrived in less than a week via fedex freight. It was easy to hook up mostly because we already had an ice machine before and knew what we were doing. This is the classic "sonic" type ice, soft and chewable but also great for drinks. Some things I think that are lacking for this machine are no interior light, no hinge covers, and not feet covers for the bottom. Those are all cosmetic and in no way effect the wonderful ice making.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my ice machine I searched and searched and the best price for this machine was here. I would get rid of my oven before getting rid of this machine. I have had it for 7 months. No problems. I had to get a pump and it does run multiple times a day. Makes the best ice ever. I am the most hydrated person on the block.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from problems Plastic wheel that distributes ice broke and machine froze up and quit operating. Ordered part from factory. Installed and waiting to see if everything operates ok. Part supplied at no cost but did not reimburse for tech labor. Waiting to see how machine operates before recommending this product to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Price! I purchased this machine a few weeks ago, and after many searches for the best price, Food Service Warehouse had the best price with excellent reviews. I received my Ice O Matic very quickly and it matched the description exactly. This ice machine makes the sonic style ice, which my whole family loves. Love this machine. Would recommend this ice maker to anyone in the market to purchase one.

Customer Questions

Does this include the drain pump or must it be purchased separately?

Asked by: janm
The Ice-O-Matic (GEMU090) - 85 lb Pearl IceĀ® Self-Contained Ice Machine does not have a built in pump. The Ice-O-Matic (KPU090) - Sump Pump would have to be purchased separately.

Can I use a simple heat exchanger with this unit, if yes do I use a tube heat exchanger or a Plate heat exchanger and what size do I use?

Asked by: Consumer24
The Ice-O-Matic (GEMU090) - 85 lb Pearl IceĀ® Self-Contained Ice Machine is an air cooled self contained machine, no, you cannot use a heat exchanger with this unit.
