Make mountains of soft fluffy snow in seconds for cool, healthy drinks, slushes, and hawaiian style shaved ice drinks. Fluffy texture of shaved ice absorbs the flavoring and will not let it run to the bottom like crushed ice does. No hard chips or chunks. Also makes attractive ice beds for appetizers, shrimp cocktail, salads, fruits, etc. Includes instruction recipe booklet and 3 ice cups. White plastic body is 13 inches high. Just fill the ice cups and freeze. Slip an ice block into the machine and press down on top of shaver to create soft, smooth, fluffy snow.
