Customer Reviews for Little Snowie 2 Shaved Ice Machine
Frequently Asked Questions
This looks like a great shaved ice machine, can I use it to start my business?
Whoa Nelly. Donít get ahead of yourself. We recommend this shaved ice machine for home use only. It is great for serving shaved ice at small birthday parties or family get-togethers but not made to handle a commercial shaved ice business. If youíre interested in starting a business, visit our sister site at www.1-800-Shaved-Ice.com.
Alright, that makes sense. How many people can I serve with the Little Snowie?
This machine does great producing 15-30 servings per day. This would be fantastic for your outdoor picnics and parties.
Shucks, I planned on buying the Little Snowie for my upcoming party and I just invited 31 people.
Donít be silly. You can definitely shave enough for 31 people. Because this machine is not designed for commercial use, you need to be cautious how hard you run it. Think about it like a coffee maker. You canít buy a typical home coffee maker and expect to open up a coffee shop.
So how many people can I serve before changing my blade? Do you even sell spare blades?
We suggest you change your blade every 1000 servings. Yes, we do offer spare blades for this machine. This machine also comes with a handy-dandy illustrated guide on changing your blade!
My children would love to make their own shaved ice serving with the Little Snowie, is it safe for them to use?
The Little Snowie machine is definitely safe! We recommend adult supervision with all of our machines; however, this machine comes with a safety switch and a foot pedal, making it easy and safe all in one machine!
This shaved ice machine has it all, doesnít it?
Well, almost. We do recommend purchasing the Little Snowie Drip Pan. This helps catch overspray and melted ice. And it always nice to have an spare Little Snowie Blade.
What kind of ice do I use with the Little Snowie?
Household ice cubes from your freezer work great but bag ice will work just as well. Ice cubes 1 inch or larger work best. The ice does not necessarily have to be in an exact cube shape but most hard solid ice will work. You just do not want to use crushed ice or pellet ice for the Little Snowie Ice Shaver. We recommend thawing your ice for about 5 minutes before shaving. The big-shots call this ďtempingĒ.
What if my machine has a defect? Does it come with a warranty?
Our Little Snowie Shaved ice machines machines are carefully inspected before they enter your home. We apologize if you receive one with a defect, but your machine does come with a 1-year warranty. Our goal is to have 100% customer satisfaction. Remember this machine is for home use only. Your warranty will be void if you use it for commercial use.
Can I use any cups to catch the snow?
Sure! However, we donít recommend our shaved ice Flower Cups. Theyíre a little too big for this machine and you canít produce that nice snow ball on the top! Almost every standard 12 to 20 ounce cup will do.
How fluffy is the ice produced by the Little Snowie? Is this a shaved ice machine or a snow cone machine?
First of all, the Little Snowie is a shaved ice machine, not a snow cone machine. No chunks of ice come from this machine, only fine fluffy snow. On our Fluffiness Scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being the fluffiest ice, the Little Snowie produces shaved ice that would fall in the 7-8 range. While block machines produce the fluffiest shaved ice of all the machines, the Little Snowie does a good job at getting close to the quality of our block machines.
This machine is the best thing that we have ever bought. Ease of ordering, choices, flavors, shipping.....everything is perfect! Now we can enjoy a little bit of Hawaii every day, not just on vacation. I highly recommend this seller. I look forward to buying from them again in the near future!
