But what if money is no object, and you simply want to produce shaved ice and snow cones as close as possible to the ones served at fairs? If itís within your budget, your best choice would be to select a commercial machine. Two machines that produce shaved ice on a professional level but are still suited for home use are the Hatsuyuki HC-8E Shaved Ice Machine and the Sno-King Snow Cone Machine.
The Hatsuyuki professional shaved ice machine produces fine, fluffy ice. Whatís great about this machine is that you can still use cubed ice or bagged ice with it. The Hatsuyuki HC-8E can easily produce 500 servings per day, making it suitable for large gatherings, schools, special events, and businesses. For safe operation, there is a safety switch and the machine cannot be operated when the lid is open.
The Sno-King professional snow cone machine produces snow cones by crunching up regular ice cubes. It has two rotating blades to make high quality snow cones. Because it can handle a large volume of ice, it is a good machine for group events and get-togethers. Itís easy to clean and has a safety button that must be pressed for the machine to work.
Of course, no matter which machine you choose, youíll want to stock up on delicious shaved ice and snow cone syrups. Which machine do you have or which machine is on your wish list? Tell us about it on our Facebook page!
