Scotsman Prodigy CU2026SA-1A ReviewThe Scotsman CU2026 is one of the most popular and best selling commercial undercounter ice makers on Amazon. And has been for many years. When an item is a best seller on Amazon, you know it’s got to be a quality product with great reliability. If it’s not reliable, and gets a lot of returns, Amazon would knock that out of their best sellers list. We got our clients unit from Amazon, thanks to the lowest price on the internet, in addition to the free shipping from the vendor. Can’t beat that!

The Cu2026 ice maker was made for the small food and beverage business market. It is the perfect balance of production capacity, reliability, and value that makes it perfect for bars, restaurants, motels and small hotels. You can’t go wrong with a Scotsman, and if you need up to 200 pounds of ice per day, this is the model for your business.

It can be built in under a counter, or freestanding and it still looks great. Business owners will love the energy AND water efficiency of this commercial Scotsman ice cube maker.

It is also much more water efficient, requiring only 18 gallons of water to make 100 pounds of ice. You number crunchers will love this efficient ice maker!


The agion cubers ensures you (and your customers) are protected from mold, mildew, bacteria, and microbes. We love the Adaptive Purge control, which does a great job in reducing scale buildup, giving you longer uptime between cleanings.

The Scotsman auto alert LED lights give you instant feedback on when it’s time to descale, sanitize, and take care of other maintenance needs of the unit.

Well folks, that’s all we’ve got to say on the Scotsman CU2026 Prodigy series ice maker. With it’s great efficiency, reliability and excellent ice production capacity, this is the gold standard for smaller commercial ice making needs.
