While this little bad boy might look like the majority of slush machines available, looks can be deceptive. If you want to make a litre of slushy with traditional machines you can expect it to take around 15 minutes. With the JM Posner Snowcone/Slushie Maker you just need to pop 10 ice cubes into the chute and turn the machine on. It then takes around 30 minutes to grind and shave the ice down so that it’s ready for you to add the syrup. It really is as simple as that. If you need more ice than what 10 cubes produce just repeat the process until you have enough.
To get you started this machine comes with 2 x 500 ml packages of Slush/Snowcone syrup and an instructional booklet that includes a variety of tasty recipes to try out. When buying things online that you are unable to see in person, it is always a good idea to look at reviews written by people who have actually bought and used the product. I think this rule of thumb is definitely applicable with something like a slush machine.
This JM Posner has received mostly positive reviews on Amazon, around 29 of the 50 people who have reviewed it have given it the full 5 out of 5 star rating. Of course, some customers who were not as happy with it as others.
One issue some customers mentioned was that they thought the blade was angled a litte too much and didn’t actually grind the ice as well as it could have done. They stated that this made it a little harder to make slush drinks than advertised. However, it should be kept in mind that other customers have said that it did the intended job of making slush drinks perfectly.
Yyou can use virtually any type of chilled drink such as fresh juice, fizzy drinks and even milk with this product, which means that it isn’t a problem when the original bottles run out.
One customer mentioned the fact that the majority of the machine was made from plastic, apart from the blade and a few other small parts that are metal. The general consensus is that this product, although plastic, is very robust and will last quite a long time if used, maintained and cleaned properly.
In summary, the reviews of this slush machine suggest that if this meets your budget and needs then you could do a lot worse than spending your hard earned money on it. Your kids will definitely thank you for it and adults will love making slushy alcoholic drinks with it too.
