10 seconds per snowcone

So good I actually rented it out once. Just don't overload it with ice and don't drop the top, mine cracked. Makes enough ice for 3 snow cones every batch, each batch takes about 30 seconds.

Chunks of plastic in your snow cone!!!!
by Gallen Sheneman (1 out of 5 stars)

(Chunks of plastic in our snow cones) I would NOT recommend anyone getting this snow cone maker!!! Immediately openinh, cleaning and reading the instructions entirely, we make snow cones for our 2 year old, 5 year old and my husband and I. It makes a horrible noise when making the snow cones. We made up our kids snow cones, gave it to them to enjoy and then proceeded to make ours. My husband and I felt PLASTIC with the first couple of bites and spit it out! I immediately took my kids away and took out pieces of plastic from everyone's snow cones! I felt horrible for even making them and stressed so much about my kids possibly eating chunks of plastic!! I was a nervous wreck. Needless to say, we returned it and I talked with Amazon about not selling something that is harmful when used and consumed. I wouldn't buy this snow cone maker. I ended up buying one from William Sonoma after this happened for more money but it's worth getting a good one that will never do what this one did. I read so many reviews about this snow cone maker and it was even "Amazons choice" when searching for snow cone makers. I seen so many pictures of childrens birthday parties and kids eating the snow cones and now knowing what can happen with this machine, I'm really hoping that there was no plastic in their snow cones like ours had! Just be aware of this before purchasing.

Works better than I expected!

I cannot believe I ever bought that stupid snoopy one! This thing is super amazing!!! Lots of fluffy ice in no time at all!! Awesomeness!!!

We've been using the syrups, but I bet this would be great with any liquid.

My only complaint is my box was missing the scoop. Not even a big enough deal to knock a star off the rating.

Bought this first to see if it would actually make great snow cone ice. It makes snow with very few small ice chips in. So fine you can actually compress the flakes and make a nice round real snow ball. Easy to set up and clean and makes plenty of shaved ice in about 4 minutes. For the price, we will keep using until it wears out or breaks, then just get another one. RECOMMEND TO ALL.

Great machine!

Great product. Shaves ice very well. Used it for a class project. My kids shaved about 10 pounds of ice (enough for more than 60 students) in about 25 minutes. Use with online snowcone flavoring recipe and you will be in heaven.

Great, easily used snow cone maker.

Great snow cone maker. This is just for small family use, you wouldn't want to use it for a large birthday party or anything like that. We used it this past summer, the kids enjoyed the cold treat. It's easy to use, and easy to clean. I like the holders on the side and the plastic holders it comes with. I purchased a tube of drink cones separately, they worked well. Snow cones are a great way to get kids to consume more water, and the amount of syrup per cone isn't extensive enough to add too many empty calories. You might be able to use the slush for drinks, like daiquiris. I don't drink, but it might work.

Big Hit at a Party
by Space Salamander (5 out of 5 stars)
July 3, 2018

Huge hit at a 6th grade graduation party. I had considered renting a Sno-Cone machine, but it was cheaper to buy this. Sure, you have to do it in smaller batches, but we had about 25 kids wanting Sno-Cones and no one had an unreasonable wait. They came out nice and fluffy. The only issue is drying it out afterwards... the area where the ice gets shaved can't be wiped out, so I just kept shaking it and shaking it and could still hear some water drops inside. So next time we use it I'll have to remember to wash it out first in case there's mildew.

One Big Mess
by Eve (1 out of 5 stars)

This thing was a total gyp! Money wasted, believe me. I tried using it, it starts off strong, but finished weak. What I mean is, the box looked cool, although I didn't like that it wasn't even covered, anyone could have sen it on my porch and taken it. But the box looked cool, I was excited to open it. It was almost impossible to assemble, I needed to google help videos, and it seemed to be missing pieces, nothing which I couldn't replace with household items, but still, upsetting. I had to buy my own flavors, which was to be expected. The actual machine was a pain to clean, did NOT make suitable amounts of ice and was all around a giant disappointment for me and my family. Save your money and get something else! Oh and also, AMAZON agent that I told my problems to, advised me he would send a replacement but never finished the order then the other amazon agents pretty much told me I was crap out of luck, nice, real nice....

Loved it
by Armida Herrera (5 out of 5 stars)

I purchased this snow cone maker and loved it the minute I actually saw it. I cleaned it out as instructed and tried it out. To my surprise it shaved the ice nicely. I kept refilling with crushed cubes from my freezer until the compartment was full. The fun begins, scoop and pour on the syrup. I didn't use the scooper that came with the machine. I used an ice cream scooper which worked better. I didn't like the fact that the cord is located where the door is. Make sure cord does not get wet. I used a dish towel to cover the cord so it wouldn't get wet. I would recommend buying the cups and spoonlike straws from Amazon. The store didn't carry these straws and the cups are sold by the hundreds. Have fun and enjoy. My whole family did and loved it!
