My mother bought this product for me for a gift, it very easy to use and easy to clean up, but it took forever to make two servings of slushies. The ice will continue to get stuck...The blades are not sharp enough...you have to watch the amount of ice you place in the top, because every so often you have to un-jam the ice when you notice the ice not shaving. I would not recommend this product.
I bought this machine thinking it would I would be able to not only make snow cones but also shave ice. When got it home I tried it out. This did not work very well with the ice from my fridge's ice maker. I had to use the crushed ice setting from my ice maker for this thing to shave the ice.
Even then it took for ever for this machine to shave the ice in the chamber.
I would not recommend using this unless you plan on using crushed ice, which defeats the purpose of this machine.
The product is reasonably priced and very attractive. However I could not get it to shave even one piece of ice. My children were very dissapointed. So no matter how inexpensive and attractive it is worth nothing if you cannot use it.
We've tried other ice shavers, and have always regretted getting them within days, as our 5 year old was constantly asking for a snocone. With this ice shaver, I don't mind at all making one for her, or two, if her younger brother also wants one! I love that when I put the juice in the cup at the bottom, it mixes right into the shaved ice! The box says that occasionally you might have to stop the machine and rearrange the ice, but the holes in the top are large and I can put 12 pieces of the thin ice in at a time and not have a problem. I prefer the snocone setting over the slushie, but that's more because I prefer the ice to be a bit finer. But the fact that it has two settings makes it a level above other shavers. I would completely recommend this to anyone who wants to make slushies, snocones or adult drinks...totally worth it!!!
