"I bought this machine after owning a couple of cheap electric ice crushers that failed after a couple of months use (and always seemed like they would break down at any minute). I eventually bought an expensive Waring blender that is great for making blended cocktails but produces ice that is far too fine for a decent Caipirinha or Julep. This machine EATS ice and produces irregular large chips that are perfect for these drinks. I only wish I'd bought one years ago rather than spending hours bashing tea-towel wrapped cubes with a rolling pin. It's going to be a good summer!"

"Pleased with service and ice machine easy to use but does not like lots of ice in chute at once. It's quicker when ice slightly broken up as it seems to jam. Otherwise quick easy and really pleased."

"This is simply amazing, I can't believe how cheap it is for the quality. Decent size chippings of ice that don't melt too quickly, not too bulky, makes a bit of noise but nothing offensive and the cherry on top is that its aesthetics match its functionality. Worth every penny, don't hesitate."

"This is the first ice crusher that works!
It looks great and produces ice perfect for soft drinks and cocktails.
James Higgins - Doncaster, 15th January
"I'd been looking to buy an ice crusher for some time, but most are ridiculously expensive and clumsy looking devices. This one however, is the cheapest of the electric ice crushers I've seen, and by far the most stylish. It does the job in seconds and produces uniform pieces of crushed ice. The only down side is that you have no control over the size of the chips (around 1cm cubed), so if you want something for producing slushy drinks, then you're better off with a blender. I love this machine though, and it looks great in my kitchen next to my other brushed stainless steel appliances."
