Product Details

This 150 lb Self-Contained Cube Ice Machine - Prodigy Series (CU1526MA-1A) from Scotsman showcases flexibility at its finest. It makes medium-sized cubes that are perfect for a wide range of uses, including champagne chillers, cocktails, fountain drinks and more. The under-the-counter design ensures that the unit stays out of the way and takes up less floor space than a free-standing unit. It can easily be used on hotel floors, behind a bar or in a break room. This ice maker uses significantly less water and energy, exceeding federal energy efficient regulations by up to 15 percent to provide a highly effective ice machine that is less expensive to operate.

Ice Style

  • Classic cubes are a common, yet versatile cube type
  • Great for drinks of any kind, displays, retailing or dispensing

  • Easy to remove door, top panel and storage bin
  • Recessed front panel on/off switch


  • Auto-Alert indicator lights constantly communicate operating status; signaling when it's time for descaling and sanitizing
  • WaterSense adaptive purge control delivers maximum reliability by reducing scale buildup for a longer time between cleanings

Editorial Review

One Advanced Undercounter Ice Machine

No one likes having to lug heavy tubs of ice from a large, centralized ice machine in a back room up to the bar or satellite station in a restaurant, and one of the best things about the 150 Lb Self-Contained Prodigy Cube Ice Machine from Scotsman is that, with it, you won’t have to. This small, self-contained ice machine is only 33 inches tall which means that it can easily fit under most standard countertops and bars giving you a compact, remote ice station that produces its own ice. Additionally, the machine makes and stores ice, so you don’t have to worry about where to place a separate storage bin. It uses an advanced air-cooled condenser that is remarkably efficient and has even helped the machine earn the coveted Energy Star® certification. Another great, practical feature of this ice machine is that it is front breathing with the air intake and exhaust on the front of the machine, so you don’t need to leave any clearance on the sides or back. All of these great features together make this simply one of the best self-contained ice machines available on the market today.

Customer Reviews

150 lb Self-Contained Cube Ice Machine - Prodigy Series is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recently had this ice machine installed at my lake house. So far, I am very pleased with it. I also purchased the filtration system to go with it (my water supply is pretty skunky if not filtered), and it produces perfectly clear cubes that are perfect for either drinks or for filling coolers. The only negative thing I would point out is that it is rather noisy when it kicks on, so if you are buying it for a house, keep that in mind. I would say its noise level sounds comparable to a clothes dryer running. Lastly, I would give FSW's customer service very high marks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough Ice!!! Purchased this machine two months ago. Makes good ice cubes but not the quanity as advertised. No matter what I do, the max I can get in the bin in a 24 hour period is about 100lbs.  I contacted customer services for Scotsman and explained the concern. Their answer was to move ice to the front and back of the 80lb bin to allow more room for the ice to fall before the machine cuts off. Problem is the bin never fills up before the machine cuts off. I started empting the bin at 12 hr intervals which yields +/- 50lbs/12hrs. Looks like I should have purchased a larger machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We own an open party fishing boat in Santa Barbara, and would buy ice from our landing. When we realized how much we paid each year for ice we saw it would be more cost effective to just buy an ice machine. After purchasing the machine we have already saved $1300 for the year. We take the whole bin when we leave the dock, and by the time we return the bin has totally refilled and we can offer ice for our customers to bring their fish home on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ice machine works well and is a replacement for my Scotsman AC-125 which was 15 years old. Hope to get as much service from this machine as I did the old one.The only negative about this machine so far is that when the ice dumps into the bin there is a lot of noise associated with the ice falling into bin.I have the unit in a utility room adjacent to my kitchen so it is very noticable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I hooked the unit up the day I got it, after reading the instruction manual of course. Installation didn't take very long. The previous machine was the same manufacture so I could use the same water supply line and drain. I turned it on and the ice machine has been making ice ever since. Looks great and is easy to clean. Very little maintenance. Works Great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must in any hospitality set-up! When the average temperature is 85 degrees in winter, there is ample opportunity to exercise this appliance. The output is such that I can run a 9 room bed & breakfast and quench the thirsts of everyone and still have ice to supply the jungle top bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This unit was installed in a landfill scale house and the size of the unit worked out perfectly for the small area we have to work with. Also the amount of ice that it produces is an adequate amount for the staff onsite. I would definitly recommend this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am a retired man that uses lots of ice to keep my fish cool and my beer cool. Living in Texas you need lots of ice. This icemaker is perfect for me. The received excellent service from your company and quick delivery.

What is the best size cube to use when filling coolers to hold beverages such as bottled water and soda for up to six hours?

What is the best size cube to use when filling coolers to hold beverages such as bottled water and soda for up to six hours?
Asked by: Anonymous
The best size ice cube for coolers, especially when holding items for six hours, would be the full size cube. Full size cubes melt slower and therefore last longer, making them ideal for coolers.
