      It seems funny to write about a snow cone maker when so many people are snowed in right now! But then summer is right around the corner, and you’ll be ready with family favorite in hand.

      The old fashioned carnival style snow cone maker by nostalgia electrics is one in a series of fabulous novelty appliances featuring old time appeal and modern convenience. Fashioned after antique snow cone carts of the early 1900’s, it features a large fun to watch ice shaving snow compartment, and a dual cone serving holder.

      When you purchase the snow cone maker you receive a main base unit, hood, ice shaving unit, and clear plastic lid. Cleaning the inside of the snow compartment is a snap since the top of the unit (including the hood,

      motor, and ice shaving unit), is removable. As you receive the snow cone maker nearly fully assembled, there are very few steps required to get the unit up and running.

      Before operating the snow cone maker for the first or really anytime, it is best to clean the inside of the unit. First lift the removable top off of the body so you can reach into the unit, and then you can wipe the inside of the unit with a moist, soft, nonabrasive sponge and dry it with a soft cloth. Once it is fully dry, just pop the top of the unit back on the unit base and get ready for the good stuff!

      It is best to put the ice cubes in the clear top of your snow ...

      • cone maker before plugging the unit in. To fill the unit with ice, simply remove the clear top by turning it in a clockwise motion and then lifting it. The best ice to use is a little pre softened. If the ice is frozen solid, it will be too hard to shave and may not work properly. It is best, to set the ice out until it is clear and wet to the touch so that it will become snowy when shaved.

        Once the ice cubes are in the unit, make sure there is some room between the ice and the lid and then place the lid back on the top in a counter clockwise motion. When you turn the lid in this motion, it will turn the unit on and

        this will cause the ice to begin to shave.

        Once you have shaved a sufficient amount of ice you can then scoop it out and begin placing it in the cone holders situated on the side of the cart. The snow cones can then take on a variety of flavor syrups. I have tried several flavors and bout syrups in Target, Kmart, and Wal-Mart.

        This machine can also be used to make slushy drinks, snow smoothies and yogurt snow. You can even freeze your favorite juice drinks into ice cubes and use the juice cubes to shave your own frozen juice treats. Whether you choose to create snow cones, or frozen drinks I think you’ll agree that the snow cone machine is a lot of fun to have around.
