This is a great machine for the price! I have purchased ice machines in the past, and was not happy with them. They either didn't work well or broke down after a few months. This machine works excellent and produces the ice just the way I like it. My sister also has this Rival brand ice machine and she purchased hers 10 years ago. Just to show you how durable they are.

After purchasing 3 machines from the store and which all worked @3-4 times, I returned them and decided to order online. Once again, after ordering 3 (all from different companies) I had to return the first 2 (worked several times and quit) and so far......the 3rd one has worked like a charm!!! It is the Rival Deluxe Ice Shaver and to date, I have had no issues or problems and am very,very pleased with my "working" Ice Machine!!!! I have a rare Lung Disease and stay extremely thirsty at all times and was drinking 8-10 bottles of water a day. Needless to say my fluid intake made me look like a "blowfish" and also made me was very uncomfortable. The Ice Shaver delivers the exact amount of fluid I need, and is wonderful to crunch on as it does not break your teeth!!! Love it, love it!!!

Unless you unload jets for a living, the little plastic Rival ice grinder is unbelievably LOUD. Could accept the noise, but it is also SLOW. Expect 3-5 minutes to make a single snow cone. If you have kids waiting, then you know that is a deal breaker! Also expect hard ice chips the size of a grain of rice, not the melt in your mouth fluffy commercial shave ice quality. Worse yet, it would just spin noisily on ice from an automatic ice maker (typical half-moon shaped wedges) with no output. Had to pound the ice into tiny little chips first with a wooden mallet before machine would work slowly. Note that most reviewers had purchased as gift and never actually used it. I returned it to WalMart.

Couldn't get ice to shave at first

Customer review by christiangram

by christiangram

I was frustrated at first because the ice wouldn't shave no matter how I fed it into the shaver. Finally, we realized if we put the ice in the cup and let it sit for about 5 minutes, it worked. Better anyway. This is not a very fast method but eventually it got the job done. Once it works, the ice is nice. I have only used the snow cone setting because of the time element.
