Great Low Price
- Creative Design
Kids and adults alike will almost certainly have fun using this device simply because of the cute snowman that it emulates. Lifting the hat to add the ice is a creative feature that will encourage kids to learn how to use it on their own ( supervision is still advised, see below ). An additional bonus is that the shovel tool fits into the snow man's hand, keeping it safe and adding to the winter scene.
- Steeped in History
The Sno-Cone Man is an updated version of a classic device that has been around since the childhood times of today's parents and even grandparents. Nothing complements a product like longevity, and people still love snow cones.
- Lots of Flavors
Not only does this machine come with five fruit flavor samples, but it can also be used with the customer's choice of flavoring. This is accomplished by freezing juices or similar drinks in ice cube trays, then simply using those instead of regular ice cubes. No additional flavoring is required, as is the case with plane ice cubes.
- Large Base With Storage
This snowman has a big bottom. It includes spaces on either side to place each of the squeeze bottles.
- Mechanism Can be Dangerous
The process of turning cubes of ice into crumbled pieces and shavings takes a not-so-gentle touch. This product features a grinding mechanism in the body that has the potential to damage anything placed inside of it during operation. Accordingly, it should only be used by children with adult supervision.
How to Use (Step by Step)
- Prepare Cubes
Users should freeze water ( or flavored drink if desired ) in an ice cube tray, or obtain ice pieces from another source, like a fridge dispenser.
- Load it up
The center of the Sno-Cone Man's hat can be lifted out to reveal a chamber. Place the prepared ice into this area and reinsert the hat piece.
- Push and Grind
Turning the handle on the back of this machine will engage the grinding mechanism that sits in the belly of the show man design. Pressing down on the removable hat center will push the ice against the spinning shaver and deposit the resulting show inside the removal area.
- Scoop it up
A shovel-like accessory is provided to let users scoop out the snow and place it in either the provided paper cones or in their own container. Steps 3 and 4 can be repeated until people have as much of a serving as is desired.
- Add Flavor (if Necessary)
Customers who choose to freeze their own flavored cubes will not need to add flavoring after the ice has been prepared. However, nothing is stopping them from doing so and some interesting tastes may result from mixing techniques. Those who used plain ice will want to add either a sample, or their own choice of flavored liquid at this stage ( unless they like plain snow, which is fine of course ).
