Scotsman reveals stylish Legacy icemaker at Host 2021

The Legacy icemaker from Scotsman crop
Scotsman will only manufacture 250 Legacy icemakers.

Scotsman is unveiling its Legacy at Host 2021 with a concept that the company believes shows the future of ice machines.

The self-contained icemaker features a variety of innovations, ranging from the materials it is made from to its internal components. These innovations are designed to deliver benefits such as an increased production capacity compared to the equivalent EC Scotsman machine, as well as a striking look – black, sleek, glossy and contoured – that is primed to create a buzz with visitors to Host’s hall 24 stand A60 B61.

Scotsman is using the Legacy to test the market’s appetite for a high-concept ice machine. Consequently, it is a limited edition, as only 250 machines will be built.

The Legacy is built using black stainless steel, a special alloy finish, and tempered glass. It combines a modern retro aesthetic with a 3D grid profile and for deployment in any back bar or front of house setting.

The advanced construction materials should ensure this is a robust machine that is built to last. The concave front improves the internal airflow, boosting production, while the high-performance insulation is designed to enhance operation.

Meanwhile the cutting-edge evaporator has been tested using the hardest waters and carries TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) verifications. The Legacy is available using eco-friendly R290 refrigerant and can make up to 44kg of gourmet supercube ice per day, 10% more than the equivalent EC model (the EC86). Its integral storage bin holds up to 19kg of ice.

The Legacy also features Scotsman’s XSafe, the innovative hygiene system that destroys viruses and bacteria as well as significantly reducing the formation of mould, yeast, mildew, slime and odours in icemakers.

David Rees, marketing manager of Hubbard Ice Systems, which supplies the Scotsman range in the UK, said: “The Legacy is a truly exciting and innovative project that points the way for future icemaker design. It will be fascinating to get feedback from Host visitors to see how they react to its radical design and looks.”
