I love this machince. It makes great snow cones - the ice is finely chopped just like snow. The picture on the box does not do it justice. The picture looks more like it makes crushed ice instead of snow cone. If you are looking for a machine that makes crushed ice this is not the product for you but if you are looking for a machine that makes snow cone then this is the machine for you.
This unit has performed admirably in daily use for more than 5 months. There is a minor design flaw in the "locking" mechanism, which causes the unit to become dysfunctional. The locking piece is too soft and does not hold its contact points under prolonged use, causing the basket to come apart. A temporary solution is to install a screw in the bottom of the cap, thereby increasing the contact pressure. The manufacturer needs to change the durometer or use dissimilar materials.

We have had snow cones every day since it arrived. I have met neighborhood kids I never knew - including their cousins! The machine puts out the "snow" quickly enough so the kids don't have to wait too long. It is also simple enough for them to operate (with supervision of course). They get a kick out of making their own snow cones. Clean up is nothing since you are only dealing with water so drain and go. Walmart carries a couple of the syrups and their is a great recipe online that takes only minutes to make and is a lot less expensive. Definitely recommend. It was a hit with young and old.

I bought this snow cone maker for my son's 2nd birthday party. I have to say out of all the things I bought this is by far the best one! It produce so much nice crunched up ice. I opted not to get the liquid that comes with it because I thought I would be able to find some at the local stores and/or create my own. Big mistake, for something as a short turn around time that we had I think I should of purchased the liquid, because I couldn't find it in any stores locally and I tried to use kool-aid already made, but it wasn't sweet enough, so we had to make it extra sweet and it still didn't give me the taste that I was looking for. It was so easy to use that I let my 11 yr old and her friend run that station and they had a ball creating the ice. I even used it for our adult party the next day with some friends and made margarita's! Besides that I just love to eat the ice that it makes and you can store so much ice in the ice holder. GREAT INVESTMENT!!!!!
this snow cone machine is perfect for family gatherings or neighbors on a hot sunny day. It's cool and refreshing. it makes snow ice instead of crushed ice. It makes the snow cones in minutes insteading of waititng, And it is very easy to clean. I highly recommend this snow cone machine
Perfect for the summertime. It's not a cheaply made kiddy snow cone maker either. Ours still makes snow cones in matters of seconds a year later. It's a quality made piece of machinery that goes along well with any vintage store/market motif. We took ours to a big family get-together because we were told to 'bring a dessert' and after dinner the whole family of 10+ people were munching on snow cones! So, needless to say it's great for a bunch of snow-cones at once, or just one for yourself. The shaved ice it produces is just like a professionally made snow cone, and after you have one of these you'll never want to pay for a snow cone from some Box truck stand again!

This machine can make one snow cone in one minute on average. However, we do not have information as to the number of cones it can make at once.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 6, 2012
How long does it take to make enough shaved ice for 10 snow cones and does it freeze up after continuous use and have to be thawed out?lyndalaffitte on Apr 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The retro single snow cone maker will produce approximately 10 snow cones with 10-15 minutes. We say, on average, it takes about a minute per snow cone. Please note, we recommend that all of our customer's should let the ice sit out for a little while prior to adding it to the machine. This helps with the shaving process.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 26, 2012
