EASE OF USE
When it comes to keeping everyone happy, ease of use is key. You’ll get no complaints on the Essential.
Because saving space is important, the Essential features a durable slide-up door, so there’s no need to plan placement around right- or left-opening doors.
LARGE ACCESS AREA
To make the most of every trip, a large access area promotes ease of use. Plus, a large, dishwasher safe scoop comes standard.
INTUITIVE CONTROL PANEL
We’ve kept things simple. Our intuitive control panel features a
prominent On/Off/Clean switch and easy-to-see buttons for adjusting ice thickness and harvest time.
What do ice lovers want to see in an ice cube? Nothing. That’s why the Essential delivers cubes in one color and one color only: Clear. Made with our innovative horizontal evaporator, the Essential doesn’t let minerals freeze in cubes, because spray jets help to keep them washed away. So from your first scoop to your last, you’re ensured perfect cubes.
When you’ve been making ice machines as long as Scotsman, better is in your DNA. That’s why all of our machines are designed responsibly to lead to lower energy costs. Plus, the Essential uses R-134a refrigerant, which does not deplete the ozone layer. And recyclable aluminum alloy side panels offer the same durability and corrosion resistance as stainless while improving long-term sustainability.
