  • Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked For Two Weeks Before Issues For the first couple of weeks, this machine made great light shaved ice, then the problems began. It would shut off after a few seconds of operation, requiring that I open the lid, turn it on again and run it for a few more seconds. I would have to repeat this process until the ice level was down to about a third of full and then it would run to completion. There is obviously a problem with this unit and I see only one other review that is similar although they call it a short. They are sending me a new unit and I hope that the first was a fluke because I really like the quality of the shaved ice it makes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun summer snow-ice machine Easy and fast machine to turn ice cubes into fine snow-like ice for summer dessert delights. Great to make "halo-halo", a popular Filipino dessert, with this machine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Machine Good machine . . . does its job. Ice is not as fine as I would like it to be. But otherwise a good machine.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Snowball Machine The machine in the picture looks strong and durable. It is not. It is very cheaply made. Very Dissapointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Produces Soft Fluffy Snow This machine works just as expected by following the directions included. It's also very user friendly. There is an online video with a brief tutorial that is helpful. The demonstrator usess a scoop (similar to an ice cream scoop) to retrieve the shaved ice from the bin. Like the instructions suggest, the ice comes out soft and fluffy with harder, colder ice. I normally use the ice cubes that are made from my refrigerator ice maker. When I tried the machine with (store bought ice) smaller, softer ice or ice that had melted slightly, the resulting shaved ice was large and crunchy (not good). I could only give a four star rating because this makes the machine a little harder to use for a larger family gathering. My most convenient store bought ice options are softer ice styles. You may have better luck with your store bought ice options. Overall this is a great purchase. You will be happy you went for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty, great family fun From my 90 year old mother to our 15 year old grandson, we had such fun making snow cones. We especially enjoyed the orange flavor. Lemonade slushy is very refreshing. It is now a part of our summertime fun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snowball Heaven I was concerned at first by the light weight and plastic construction of my snowball maker but those concerns disappeared when I pulled out the snow bin and saw what looked literally like SNOW. I purchased snowball syrup from a local snowball company that has been in the business since 1910 and have been making snowballs almost every day since. I took my machine to work for "Snowball Friday" and got a thank you card from the office with TIPS! This is a great machine that will surely bring lots of fun this Summer.
