I did not expect this machine to produce such finely chopped ice. The sno cone comes out w/the consistency of actual snow that falls in the winter -- which is really great. I was afraid it would produce chunky ice, but this is perfect. My daughter loves it and insists on making sno cones for her friends even though it is January. They all love it. The retro style is also fun. It is a very light machine so I don't know how durable it will be in the long run, but it appears well made. I appreciate the light weight of the machine, since it is easier to lift out of the cabinet when needed. The only negative is that the ice kind of flies a bit. It has a cup holder at the base, and the majority of the ice will land in the cup, but it also sprays beyond the cup. I have tried holding the cup under the spout, but the ice still sprays a bit. It's a minor matter for such a fun treat. (Very happy with Overstock -- got this to me very quickly).
After researching various snow cone machines, this one by far was the best value we found. It looks great and the cost was nice on our pocket book. It takes a bit to make each snow cone, and on occasion you have to run your finger along the inside when the slush starts to build up, but it's not a real issue. It was a gift for our daughter and she is loving it! Well worth the money.
This is my second single snow cone maker (my daughter has the other one) and I'm happy with the size of the ice etc. and would recommend this product. You can spend a lot more, but for something you don't use 'all the time' -- this product is perfect.

This works great!!! I've been looking at these for the past few wks, for a snow cone maker there either sold out or Sucky manual ones. This works great and uses regular ice. I'll probably be getting this for my nieces 4 Chrstmas, thx overstock another happy customer And we ate some tonight, yummy :) :) LUV IT!!!!
The product is a lot of fun for my 4 children-and my husband-. The ice crystals little too big for my liking. It makes more like a very finely crushed ice rather than shaved snow like.
But for the price and compactness of the machine it works wonderfully.
