Easy-to-Use Electric Ice Crusher
Whether you want to crush ice for a fruit slushy, a sophisticated cocktail or just to pop in your ice bucket to cool your champagne, wine bottles and beer, this ice crusher is quick and simple to use. All you have to do is fill the top chamber with ice, turn it on, and wait for ice to collect in the jug underneath.
Top Tip: If you use supermarket-bought ice cubes, use a rolling pin to smash the ice in the bag a bit first to speed up your ice crushing process.
Can You Change the Size of Ice Shavings?
Yes, just turn the dial on the front of the machine to pick between fine or coarse to change the size of the crushed ice produced.
Can You Use this Ice Crusher for Cocktails?
Absolutely! It’s great for making both crushed ice cocktails and mocktails. Crushed ice is typically used in julep, tiki, cobbler, and other spirit cocktails that need dilution. As well as cooling a drink, ice dilutes it and this can greatly improve the taste of some spirits. The small size of the crushed ice is great for use with drinks that include lots of fancy syrups and juices as it adds the right amount of dilution while keeping them consistently chilled.
Is It a Good Slushie Maker?
You can definitely make slushies with this ice crusher machine although it works in a different way to traditional slush machines. With this machine you should pour syrups in the jug first rather than through the top of the machine. The stirrer will turn constantly while the ice is crushing to mix in your chosen flavours – however, don’t add lots of liquid as you don’t want to be cleaning up spills as a result of the mixing.
You don’t need to add salt to the top of this machine either. Salt makes ice melt but keeps the freezing temperature lower, so you drink stays chilled for longer. If you want to add ice, stir it in after you’ve made your slushie.
