Fun and Slushy Shaved Ice Machines for Home Kitchens

by Regi_B

Machines for making ice a tasty treat.

What makes warm weather better? Especially to a kid, the answer can be a shaved ice "sno-cone" to cool the body.

If bringing the "shaved ice experience" into your home sounds cool to you, then there are machines for home kitchens that can help you do just that.

I have researched the shaved ice machines sold online -- some are electric, some are manual, all shave ice.

Here on this wizzle is what I have found.

Best Shaved Ice Machine

Perhaps, it is because this machine is sold as a package -- with all the shaved ice home serving supplies you could need.

Perhaps, it is because of its price.

Whatever the reason, people loved this machine by Hawaiian Shaved Ice.

In fact, it has gotten almost all positive reviews on Amazon.

Popular Shaved Ice Machine

To the right, is a very popular shaved ice machine by Victorio. 

To be clear, when you buy this machine, you are going the "no frills" route.

No worries though, right?

You can add your own snow cones -- your own flavors!

There are 50 positive reviews on Amazon for the Victorio Electric Snow Cone Maker.

Now, that is nothing to shake some thing you would shake at. (When not corny or cheesy, I am oft a smidge redundant.)

Check Out this Ice Concoction Maker!

Now, what is the reason to buy this product?

Go on, tell me! I am kind of at a loss over it.

Wait! I get it!

If you want something that can shave your ice, yet make an array of other frozen beverages, why not pay Jimmy Buffett and his friends for it?

With the Margaritaville DM1000 Frozen Concoction Maker, you get an ice shaver and drink mixer that goes up to 32 ounces.

Now, that is a lot of concoction makin'!

And people say they love it!

What Is So Great about Shaved Ice?

Here is what makes shaved ice superior to -- say -- other ice:

  • It house a nice texture to it.
  • Shaved ice melts evenly in your mouth.
  • You don't have to bite down on it.
  • It collects and distributes flavor better.
  • It is shaved, after all!

Get a Little Snowie

If you want your home shaved ice experience to be a little more fun, get a Little Snowie.

If you want to put a smile on your kids' faces, get a Little Snowie.

If you know what I am going to say next, get a Little Snowie.

Almost every online review of the Little Snowie is positive.

You could even use it to start your own little snow cone stand.

Premium Quality Commercial Shaved Ice Machine

If you want a premium quality, commercial-grade shaved ice machine -- and let us be clear, you only want one of these if your plan is to start a snow cone stand -- then what you probably want is the Great Northern brand machine to the right.

This machine shaves down large ice cubes, and produces consistent shaved ice.

Those who have written about it on Amazon have said positive things about this shaved ice machine.

Be prepared to pay more than $300 for this machine.

If you are interested in a high-quality, commercial shaved ice machine, that price may well be a steal.

Unusual Things to Make with Shaved Ice

  • Anise-flavored snow cones.
  • A dinner's main course.
  • World peace.

Normal Things to Make with Shaved Ice

  • Cherry-flavored snow cones.
  • Money.
  • A kid's smile.

Shaved Ice Machines -- in Summary

No matter which direction you want to go with a shaved ice machine, you have plenty of options available to you online.

Thank you for the comments, Katie. I think the first one is pretty "cool" myself. :-D

I love these fun slushy makers for home use. We bought the first one you highlight and it has been used to death. I'm liking the pretty blue one now. With this heat the ease of making icies and slushies at home is very appealing and so much better for you than ice cream. :)K

I hope you do check them out, Brenda, and I am glad you like what you see. :-D
