This particular appliance is particularly known for its ease of use and it will help you easily whip up snow cone reminiscent of sunny days at the beach. Best of all, the Snow Cone Maker will also help you enjoy other treats such as slush drinks and granitas.
This snow cone maker by Nostalgia Electrics boasts of a rustic reddish design that will add a pronounced retro look to your kitchen. While it is on the larger side, it certainly is attractive enough to be displayed in the counter, which can help you save up on cabinet space. The boxed packaging also includes an instructions manual as well as several recipes to help you prepare delicious and highly decadent treats in no time, without even having to step out of your front door. Bound to liven up and add a special touch to parties, the machine can even be used by beginners.
Users will also receive all the accessories required to make delicious snow cones. Since the machine doesn’t take a lot of time to churn your ice, it can certainly be used to cater to large gatherings such as garden parties, barbecues and the likes. However, this model does come with a few downsides. For example, since it literally crushes the ice cubs to make your snow cone, it does tend to be on the noisier side. One user had a few issues with the latch that keeps the lid secure but this was a rather lone case. A couple of customers also complained about the fact that the machine was messy to operate. In terms of versatility, this machine is unfortunately limited to firm-textured sherbet, snow cone and slushies. Other than these downsides, however, this machine received quite a lot of positive reviews.
Measuring 12.5” x 10.5” x 15.5 inches, this appliance can make a considerable amount of snow cones in one batch. Users will be glad to learn that the appliance comes with two fully reusable plastic cones that can easily be cleaned under running water or in the dishwasher for the next time you want to use them. You can also scoop out your snow cone into your own bowls and cups if you want require additional servings.
According to the manufacturers, this snow cone maker requires around thirty minutes to properly crush and churn the ice. However, some users have found that forty-five minutes to one hour provided perfectly crushed, fluffy ice that was thin enough to properly absorb your syrup, honey or other toppings that they choose to put on it. The bowl does not need to be frozen before use, which can considerably shorten the preparation time. Still, a couple of customers claimed to have had better results whenever they’d allowed the canisters and blades to freeze for a few hours before use.

While it is not entirely appropriate to softer-textured delicacies like frozen yogurt and gelato, the machine does provide you with authentic, refreshing and- more importantly- entirely healthy snow cones. It also comes with an ice cream scoop that will help you easily dollop your crushed ice into individual portions without any hassle. The machine also comes with long-lasting stainless steel shaving blades that can very easily last for several decades with the proper care.
The parts are entirely detachable, which makes cleaning up quite easy. More importantly, it also includes a built-in safety switch that automatically shuts off the snow cone maker whenever the motor overheats, which means that you can safely allow your ice to churn while you go about with your regular activities. The countertop size makes it easy to carry around which means that you can even carry it to the backyard on hot summer days.
