If you’ve ever seen an Arctic Blast snow cone machine and thought about how awesome it would be to have a snow cone anytime you wanted one, you’re in the right place. We ate a lot of snow cones and researched some of the most popular products to find out which is the best snow cone machine. Before we get into our reviews, let’s take a closer look at some of the important features you should know.
Type: We found snow cone machines that are perfect for your kitchen counter or backyard on a hot summer day. Want to serve snow cones at your business or a large gathering? We found some great commercial options, too.
Syrup: A few of the products we chose come with a few flavors of syrup so all you need to do is add ice and you can have a fresh snow cone minutes after opening the box.
Pieces: We found a few kits that included syrup as well as paper and reusable cones, straws, and spoons. In this case, you definitely won’t have to add anything but the ice to get the party started.
Weight: If you’re planning to move your snow cone machine around or if you are going to store is between uses, pay attention to the weight. It should be light enough that you can move it independently.
Size: Some of the machines made for home use are the perfect size to leave out on your counter. They don’t take up too much room so don’t have to put them away after every use. Commercial products tend to be a little larger.
Warranty: The warranties for these products really vary a lot. Some cover you for 90 days, others for up to 3 years. Read your warranty carefully so you know what’s covered and, somewhat more importantly, what isn’t.
