Scotsman Prodigy 70 Lbs, 15" Self Contained
I bought this ice maker to replace an Everstar which since it had the control board (which was not the same as the original) replaced by a certified technician it never worked right after that. This new machine has been performing as stated in the product literature. As a user, I had no problem installing it and following the set up instructions all of the events occurred as stated. The only problem during installation was it took almost 3 hrs to remove the protective plastic on the unit, especially around the vents. Since installation it has performed flawlessly. I would definitely recommend this unit!!

Great for coolers for kids practices & games
This cooler is exactly what I was looking for. We already had an ice machine in our kitchen that produced small ice which we love for drinks. However the small ice melted too quickly for the hot Texas summers of baseball games and football practice for our 3 boys. This ice machine produces a pretty big ice cube which is great because it melts slowly. The ice is clear and good.
TIP: I had wanted another ice machine for awhile but had no where to put one since I did not have another floor drain. We ended up putting it in the laundry room and the plumber was able to tap into the cold water line and then run the drain hose down the same drain as my washing machine. You will need a $50 condensation pump and I recommend a water filter. Set up works great.

Quickest Ice Ever
First ice cubes dropped within 15 minutes and they were perfect. Overnight the bin was filled with 70 lbs of ice. We have had many other ice machines, and none have kept up with a weekend get together. This is an awesome ice machine; worth every penny.
