Prefer ice cubes to be smaller. But size is OK>
The Good
Makes nice ice, clear and good shape. Is not as loud as expected. Very acceptable sound level.
The Bad
Have not noted anything particularly bad. Would like drain to be more versatile in discharge position. Replace a GE unit that drain in center. This unit drain is slightly off center and not easy to connect to existing.

The Good
Ordered online and got the machine a week later. I replaced a DCE33. This unit produces 3x as much ice and the bin was full in 12 hours. Great price.
The Bad
Installing the drain line is difficult when the unit is installed in a cabinet. The access panels on the front and back are too small making it very difficult to reach through and insert the line into the drain.

We replaced a Scotsman Model DCE33 with the Model CU50GA-1A. The new ice machine is working perfect. It produces a lot more ice and we are very happy with it. It is a great value for the money. The unit was delivered as agreed and we recommend Shortorder.com. Bill Pingree 01/01/2014

The Good
We use this in an office of 12 people and always have plenty of ice available. Be sure to order the model with the drain pump for indoor installation. I ordered this one by mistake and the installer had to retrofit the pump from our old machine into this one but it's doable and works great.
The Bad
We had the same model for 7 years before the the motor stopped working. Be sure to keep the vented area clean in a high traffic area.

I'M A CONTRACTOR & I INSTALL QUITE A FEW OF THESE MACHINES EACH YEAR. I'VE INSTALLED ALL DIFFERENT BRANDS. I USUALLY LET THE CUSTOMER DECIDE WHICH TYPE ICE THEY WOULD LIKE & TRY TO SUIT THEIR NEEDS. ALTHOUGH A LITTLE MORE PRICEY THAN RESIDENTIAL MACHINES, I THINK THE CU50 IS A GOOD CHOICE FOR HIGHER USAGE & MORE EXTREME CONDITIONS. THE TIME-TO-CLEAN LIGHT IS A GOOD FEATURE & SHOULD HELP PROLONG THE MACHINE LIFE. OVERALL SATISFIED WITH THE CU50.
The Good
I REPLACED A DCE-33 MACHINE IN A VERY SMALL DECK BAR ROOM. I LIKE THE EASE OF CHANGING THE DOOR SWING. (MUCH SIMPLER PROCESS THAN THE DCE-33 INSTRUCTIONS) THE QUALITY OF THE CU50 IS MUCH BETTER THAN THE DCE-33. MORE PRODUCTION PER DAY
The Bad
ON A CLOSE-QUARTERS INSTALLATION, THE EXTENDED HANDLE BAR CAN PRESENT A PROBLEM, THE DCE-33 HAD PULL HANDLE PARTIALLY BUILT-IN, AT TOP OF DOOR.

This machine replaces the same model that we've had for 23 years. It seems to work very well so far, and the addition of the cleaning light and scoop are improvements

The Good
very nice looking and easy to install. we had ice in about 15 minutes.
The Bad
WOW is this loud when dumping ice should go in a garage, my last icemaker was no where near this loud. we are only going to turn it on when we need ice.

This is our 2nd Scottsman Ice Machine and we love it. The best ice in the industry. Keep up the great work.

The new ice machines works great. Replaced older GE with smaller cubes which wasted water since the melted very quickly. I love the larger cubes and it saves a lot of energy. Price was over $500 cheaper and delivered to my door! I highly recommend for home use and highly recommend Shortorder.com.

This is the finest ice machine I have ever owned. The large clear cubes are what sets it apart from the other models. I have owned two other models that make the small square cubes and this one is much nicer. I would highly recommend it
