Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The blue plastic exterior is designed well enough that it does not look cheap as it sits on a counter. The grinding chamber is clear enough that children can enjoy seeing the ice grind before it comes out as shaved ice.
All you need to do is add ice to the machine and within seconds get fluffy snow cones. With this particular machine, you do not need to have different ice molds that would fit the device. Regular ice cubes are enough to get you soft and fluffy shaved ice in no time.
This electric ice shaver uses plain or flavored ice cubes instead of molds and features an adjustable stainless steel blade that is replaceable. To create coarser shavings, loosen the screws on the blade and lower the blade into the chamber. For finer shavings, raise the blade out of the chamber, and then retighten the screws.
It does not require any special ice molds as it uses any regular ice cube. And features an adjustable stainless steel blade. It is also quite easy to operate
To ensure your safety, the equipment has an auto-shutoff mechanism such that it won’t work when the top lid is open. With a transparent flip top, your kids can enjoy the unobstructed view of the shaving process.
Avalanche ice shaver works without much noise. The device is easy to operate and clean after use.
Filling the machine with ice cubes give you enough to make three lightly packed bowls of shaved ice.
This model contains the new and improved avalanche ice shaver. Also, it comes with various unique accessories like ice cones, straw spoon, free syrup and scoop spoon.

What reviewers didn't like

Some users have trouble getting it dry. Some find that it does not last long.
The free syrups are slightly watery. The lid needs to be pressed down continuously for shaved ice
The lid has to be held down, so you can not just turn it on and leave it. The grinding slow down as the machine empties, so adding more ice when it is half empty keeps it working quickly.
Can't operate without the lid being fully closed. Time-consuming. Designed from plastic.
The device takes time to shave.
Free syrup may be watery.
