One of the lowest priced models that gives the best performance. It will provide you with shaved ice for delicious snow cones at a very affordable price. This appliance is very easy to operate and with all the safety measures taken, under adult supervision, children can make their own snow cones with this easy to use device.
- Home Holds
The machine uses an 80-watt motor and stainless steel ice-shaving blades to create snow, and it’s able to shave ice in seconds. You can get about two cones of ice from one batch of shaved ice, and you can fit a bowl under the dispenser. This allows you to walk away from the machine while it’s working.
- Diligent Chef
This machine is so safe and simple that kids will be able to use it unsupervised. This provides them with an extra source of wholesome entertainment. As an added bonus, all of the parts of the BLIZZY Snow Cone Maker Set are dishwasher safe. After use, simply throw the snow cone in the dishwasher and it will come out sparkling clean.
- Chef's Resource
Although BLIZZY ice shaver set is a new release, it has already taken the market by a storm and it is poised to be one of the best Ice Shaver machines of all time. The set includes an electric ice shaver, three different snow cone syrup flavors (grape, red raspberry, and cherry), twenty units of 6-oz paper cone cups and twenty plastic straws. Its stainless steel ice shaving blades can create the perfect absorbing ice.
- TopPro10
This will definitely be a hit in any children’s party. This comes in a set that includes 4 silicone cone cups, 4 metal cone holders, and 20 6-oz paper cone cups, and 44 plastic straws. The silicone cone cups are cute as well and they come in different colors. The metal cone holders are works of genius. It allows people to rest their snow cones on a table to free up their hands. It is quite clear that this product is being marketed to be used for parties and special events.

Easy to use and quieter to operate than most.

What experts didn't like
The edges can wear out easily. The ice is not as smooth as other machines on the list.
- Home Holds
Some people have complained that ice comes out as pebbles instead of being shaved. The blade isn’t adjustable, so you can’t make the shaved ice finer or coarser. Great for the occasional snow cone, but it’s not something that would necessarily work well at a party or family gathering
- Diligent Chef
Although the BLIZZY Snow Cone Maker Set works quickly, it can only hold one snow cone at a time. This slows down the process to a certain extent.
- Chef's Resource
The problem is that very little information to judge the product is available.
- TopPro10
Not as powerful as other snow cone machines.
- Dona's Kitchen
Small capacity requires you to continually feed it ice. Those who prefer finer "shaved" ice may be disappointed with the grainy texture it produces.
- BestReviews
Part edges can easily wear out. Crushed ice is not so smooth compared to other machines on the list.

An Overview On Snow Cone Makers

The snow cone machine was first patented back in 1920. At that time, it was used commercially to sell snow cones to customers at big events. Today, we have the luxury of purchasing a home model to enjoy a refreshing snow cone anytime.

As you shop around, consider how often you plan on using the snow cone maker and how many people you need to serve. There are models that can hold enough ice to make 20 snow cones at a time, as well as units that can prepare the ice in as little as 3 seconds. Single-serve snow cones makers are better for home or office use but wouldn’t work well in a party setting.

Check to see if the snow cone maker uses traditional ice cubes from your refrigerator. Many do, however, there are models that require you to use specially shaped ice drums.

Keep safety in mind as you browse the available snow cone makers. If you have children at home, you may want to go with a model that has a safety switch to keep your hands from coming in contact with the snow cone maker’s blade.

Look for any extras that put one snow cone maker ahead of another. For example, there are models with a built-in shelf for holding up to two snow cones. Other units provide complimentary serving scoops, sample flavorings and party spoons.

DYWM Fun Fact

A version of snow cones has been around since 27 B.C. when the citizens of the Roman Empire added syrup to mountain snow to consume as a dessert. Of course, this method meant you could only have a snow cone during the cold and snowy winter months.

It wasn’t until 1919 that snow cones became popular in the United States. They were served by Samuel Bert at the State Fair in Texas. It was summertime, so this dessert was a welcome treat, as it helped to keep fair-goers nice and cool.

The Snow Cone Maker Buying Guide

  • Some snow cone makers have extremely loud motors and make a great deal of noise while shaving ice. Keep this in mind as you browse the available models.
  • Not every snow cone maker provides a powdered texture. Some are coarser.
  • Check the running time of the snow cone maker if you plan on using it to serve a large number of people. Some overheat if they are used for an extended period of time. Those models aren’t recommended for commercial purposes.
  • Snowcone makers can be heavy and a bit bulky. This may be a concern if you need to transport the unit to the office or to a party.
  • Some models also have the option of adding a party kit. The kit would include snow cone cups, syrups for flavoring and straws with a spoon on the end.
  • Speed and quality are the biggest factors that affect the price of snow cone makers. The Cuisinart Snow Cone Maker, Hawaiian Shaved Ice Snow Cone Machine and the Nostalgia Vintage Snow Cone Maker are pretty evenly priced; however, the SNOWIE Ice Shaver & Snow Cone Machine commands a higher price tag because it has a professional-grade motor that can prepare one snow cone every three seconds.
