Summer Party Fun!

If you looking for something fun to add to your summer parties, an easy no bake dessert, then check out these snow cone machines. Everybody loves snow cones, they are fun and easy to make, they taste great, and you just need to supply ice, electricity and juice. A snow cone machine or shaved ice maker will make your parties something to remember!

You could choose the Nostalgia Electrics RSM-602 Retro Series Snow-Cone Machine. A great shaved ice maker, it has a grinder on top, just insert ice cubes and push them through with the plastic plunger. Quickly makes enough snow cones for several people. This device uses plastic gears and there have been a few rare complaints on the gears wearing out to quickly. I suspect though, that this may only be a problem if you try to push the ice cubes through to quickly. There is a video demonstration at the bottom of this page and you can see that several ice cubes are used simultaneously without any problems.

Or you could pick the Electric Snow Cone Maker. Also a shaved ice maker, it is similiar to the Nostalgia machine, you also put the ice cubes in the top and push them through with a plunger. These first two machines are quite similiar with equal reviews. The main difference is mainly esthetic. This device uses plastic gears and there have also been a few rare complaints on the gears wearing out to quickly. Again, I suspect though, that this may only be a problem if you try to push the ice cubes through to quickly.

This brings me to my favorite and it is simply called The Snow Machine. It is the ultimate party shaved ice maker, even for large functions like church outings and potlucks. Unlike the less expensive machines, it can grind multiple ice cubes to make shaved ice at once. It can serve hundreds of people as long as you bring enough ice and syrup. The initial cost is high, but it will last forever, saving you money in the long run. It uses all metal gears and can be easily taken apart and repaired if necessary.

    My kids love snow cones. I'll have to seriously consider getting one of these as they don't seem too expensive!
