I'm considering buying one and wanted to know people's experiences with them. Did the kids like it? What did you use to flavour the ice? Did it work well? Any and all experiences welcome

Snow cone maker?

Could you maybe try an ice crusher. There was one in the Harv*y norm*n catalogue recently. That may crush the ice really small which would be the equivalent really.
I had a snow come maker as a kid and I remember it never worked.
Or you could buy the kids frosty mugs!? Again similar effect but you can use fruit juice in them instead of sugary cordial that you would add to the snow cone maker.

I have one, it's sat in the cupboard untouched for a few years.
They need a huge amount of ice, which is a PITA (IMO) to freeze at the best of times!
I use straight cordial to flavour.
They are cool, but just a pain.

I have a manual ice crusher but mostly just make cordial slushies in my blender. I'm very lucky and have a chest freezer so I buy big bags of ice.

I have an ice shaver. My kids love it, it was about $20 and works well for what we use it for

I have slushie cups (forget their actual name right this minute!) that live in the freezer and work well. Also have a thermy that crushes ice like nothing on this planet so that has us covered! A friend bought a snow cone maker and chucked it.
