The thing that is even more impressive is that you do not need a blender or ice and there is no mess at all to clear up. There is only a little bit of prep work with these slushy makers in that you stick them into the freezer until they are frozen. Then when they are ready to use, add your own or your children’s own preferred chilled drink and your slushy is ready to drink.
Fruit juices, fizzy drinks, even chocolate milk and any others that you can think of can be used to make delicious slushy drinks! It’s for that reason, the versatility of flavoured drinks you can make and the fact that they are transportable, that this particular slushy maker should be seriously considered.
This particular product has around 395 reviews on Amazon, 175 of which gave it the full 5 out of 5 star rating. Clearly a large number of the customers who have purchased this were very happy with it. This is not to say that there were not a small number of customers who were less pleased with it. As it is importante to look at both sides of the story, it is worth looking at the negatives as well as the positives before buying.
For example, there are some people who have experienced difficulty actually getting the cups to make slushies. Whether it is that the drinks aren’t freezing properly or they can’t get the drinks to mix properly once they have frozen, these are the most common problems. However, for every one or two negative comments that suggest the product doesn’t work well, there are plenty more saying that it does. This is a comon issue with this type of device, as not everyone gets to grips with them for one reason or another.
It does seem that if you are going to buy this particular slush machine that you need to follow the enclosed instructions and the various hints and tips available from forums too. For example, fridge-cold water is the best way to start and will freeze much faster than lukewarm or cold tap water. The majority of positive experiences also seem to happen when the freezer is set at the most appropriate temperature, which might require turning down the thermostat further than what it is set to normally. Another tip from many of the customers with positive experiences is that you should allow enough time for the cups to freeze properly – some even suggest doing it the night before you plan on using them. As an even better rule of thumb you can start freezing them as soon as they have been used and washed up.
Judging by the comments and the overall experience of customers using this product it may seem a little expensive for what it actually is and does. However, when used properly the resulting slushy drink more than makes up for the cost.
