Product Details

This 150 lb Self-Contained Cube Ice Machine - Prodigy Series (CU1526SA-1A) from Scotsman is versatility at its best. It makes small-sized cubes that are perfect for a wide range of uses, including water, soda, cocktails and more. The under-the-counter design keeps the unit out of the way, but still within arm's reach. Because it 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 conserves water and energy, exceeding federal energy efficiency regulations by up to 15 percent, in order to provide a highly effective ice machine that is less expensive to operate.


  • Sleek and compact design
  • Easy front access
  • Small cubes
  • Front air circulation
  • Agion protects against bacteria, molds and microbes for better tasting and sanitary ice
  • WaterSense adaptive purge control reduces scale build up, extending time between cleanings
  • AutoAlert™ uses LED lights to signal when it’s time to descale, sanitize and more

Editorial Review

A Popular Ice Machine for Meeting Areas

The Scotsman CU1526SA-1A is an incredibly popular machine for churches, fraternity houses, medium-sized companies, and meeting rooms. The reason they are so popular is becasue they make ice fast and produces the perfect amount of ice for any medium-sized group of people. Even though they do not have the most attractive design, these Scotsman ice machines are very versatile and will last a long time. If you assume that each person in your establishment will need between 1-2 pounds of ice, then this ice machine will easily serve 150-300 people on any given day. That's great for large meetings, sunday pancake breakfasts, fundraisers, or any other event with an organization. However, that will not be enough for high traffic restaurants or industrial shops. These ice machines have a few other perks, including a sliding door, which allows for easy access to the ice bin, and a computer that will alert you when something's wrong. These are just great all around machines.

Customer Reviews

150 lb Self-Contained Cube Ice Machine - Prodigy Series is rated 4.6429 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from We are a school and the icemaker is used daily by athletic teams for water coolers when practicing and for teams that use the gym to play. We have found that the size (150 lbs. made daily and 80 lbs. holding capacity) works well with our school that has a population of 500 students. We have not had any trouble with the product, but have been using it only since the end of July.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love our Scotman ice machine. It arrived when we were told it would be here, no problem unloading it. My husband hooked it up with no problems and said it was really easy to hook up. We use it for our personal use. It makes ice really quickly and is very quite running. The outside is stainless steel and looks really nice. I would really recommend this ice machine, especially if you want one that makes l50 lbs. a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service Food Warehouse had great service, delivery and follow up. The ice machine is fantastic and make a lot of ice fast. My installation needed a condensate pump but the installation was easy. Like other reviewers, I'd say the machine is a little noisy. Mine is in the garage, so it's not a big issue.

how long does the machine need to make a batch of ice?

Asked by: Dallas Wilson

Would it be ok to put this on a covered porch, if we insulate the water line?

Asked by: Kara3boys
This ice machine should not be placed outside on a covered porch due to the fact that the air temperature needs to stay between 50 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

I am replacing a 12 yr old Ice O Matic and want to know if this model is comparatively the same unit? Also, what is the distinction of a "Prodigy Series"? Also, is the ice cube tray stainless steel? Thanks, Janet

Asked by: Inky
Scotsman Prodigy Series is defined by the Prodigy board that runs the machine. It is the brains behind the machine, & provides the highest efficiency level when referencing energy and water consumption. The ice cubes sit in a rotocast bin once they've been made.
