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.
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.
Absolutely! It’s great for making both crushed ice cocktails and mocktails. Crushed ice is typically used in juleps, tiki, cobblers 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 whilst keeping them consistently chilled.
You can definitely make slushies with this ice crusher machine although it works in a different way to traditional slushy makers. With this machine you should pour syrups in the jug first rather than through the top of the machine. The stirrer will turn constantly whilst 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.
This machine will grind 250g of ice in each 5 cycle period.You should only run your ice crusher for 60 seconds at a time to prevent overheating, and allow a further 60 seconds between each crushing to let the machine cool down. Not only does this extend the life of your machine, it stops the heat of the motor melting your ice before you crush it. Allow a 30 min cooling down period after you’ve completed 5 consecutive ice crushing cycles.
The ice crushing machine is easy to disassemble for cleaning. You can remove the jug, stirrer and lid to wash them under the tap or with warm soapy water. You can also pour some water through the machine to clean out the dispensing shoot. No parts of this crushed ice maker are dishwasher safe. Please take care when cleaning the ice crushing chamber as it contains sharp blades.

This electric ice crusher can process 250g of ice at a time, i.e. over the course of 5 x 1 min cycles. After this you should let your machine cool down for at least 30 minutes before using again.
No, do not put salt in this machine as it potentially damage the motor and workings of the machine. Other slushy makers recommend salt as it lowers the freezing temperature of water and keeps your ice colder for longer. If you do want to use salt make sure you add it to the crushed ice afterwards.
The ice crusher measures 12.3 x 16.8 x 15.8 cm and has a 1m long power cable.
