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.
seems to be a good product. like the fact that it is quiet .
We don't do snowcones, but we both like iced coffee and this shaver works great.
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!!!
I wanted something to make an icee but it doesn't make the ice small enough.
Will keep looking.
Bought for grand kids they were happy for the snow cones
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.
Great product, Great price, Very durable.
Bought this to make a Filipino desert dish called Halo Halo. Makes great shaved ice and the halo halo is like a taste of home according to family. next attempt is to try to make some frappes like McDonald's
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.
My ice shaver broke 2 weeks after receiving it. Made in China. I wish WalMart would sell more American made products.
Easy to use, powerful, holds a lot of ice! Buy with confidence!
My wife and grandchildren love the snow cones. It is worth the money.
my husband loves this. He makes a snow glass every night
We have had other snow come makers and smoothie makers ! This is an excellent combo. Works in seconds!!!
Good for small jobs but takes a while to shave had to refill ice 3x to make large slushie
Love it works great
it does the job, but be warned....it is VERY loud!!!!!
I use it 2-3 times a day, but after couple weeks or so, it breaks. neat little machine, but can't take the pressure.
