We have tried many methods for crushing ice along the way, and all have their limitations.

This one does, too- but it's the lowest-tech and easiest to store we've tried.

Basically: put ice in the heavy canvas bag; fold the top over and hold it, and hit it with a hammer (or a meat tenderizer). Not only does it smash the ice efficiently, but it's excellent for releasing hostility! (I am a metalsmith, and I often say that us metals people are happy because we get to hit things and set them on fire- one commonality we have with cooking, which is another passion of mine).

You won't get perfectly shaved ice for a frozen margarita, but it's not a bad way to start that, then put it in a really sturdy blender. For other iced cocktails, it's excellent, handy, and easy to use and to store.

Win!

Before using this to crush your ice, I would suggest turning it inside out and pulling out any loose threads you find. There is nothing more unappetizing than finding multiple long cotton threads mixed in with your beautifully crushed ice.

I bought two of these bags. One was perfect but the other had about a two inch section along the side where the stitching was too close to the edge so there was a open gap. I've hand stitched this section and the bag works as intended but it is sad that no one at the manufacturer apparently examines these bags before they are packaged for sale.

I gave the item 3 stars since the quality of the canvas material is quite good and I expect them to last a good while. It's just unfortunate that half the items are poorly constructed.

I live in two cities and downsized one dwelling to an apartment that has a very basic refrigerator (no ice maker, therefore, no crushed ice). I used to be a bartender and remember lewis bags, and was very delighted to find one. No frills, but it works, at least for 1-2 drinks at a time. Buy two lewis bags and you can manage most dinner parties. I use a mallet also bought on Amazon (Crown 106 20-Oz Beechwood Mallet, 4-1/2-Inch), and it works perfectly.

The absolute testament to this purchase was when my entire household got the flu over the Christmas/New Years break. No crushed ice and none of us able to eat anything other than ice chips. Mssrs. Lewis and Crown enabled even the most feeble of us to nurse ourselves out of sickness and into health.

Now, they reign supreme at our très intime apartment parties.

The bag is ok, but it's sewn together poorly. Not only are the seams just so-so, but during manufacturing they left a ton of loose string on the inside of the bag. This results in bits of string being mixed in with your crushed ice.

Be sure if you get this bag, the first thing you do is turn it inside out and trim off all the excess string, unless you like bits of cotton floss in your Mai Tai.

Other reviews said a small wooden mallet might be included -- mine arrived with no mallet, but I still like the product. I grabbed a little wooden "crab hammer" for $1 from the rod-and-reel area at a local megastore -- works just fine.

The Lewis Ice Bag is a fun accessory in the kitchen or bar, making small quantities of crushed ice as needed. I've had mine for several months, and use it often. And if mine suddenly burst into flame, I would first call the fire department, and then get on Amazon to order another one.

A few caveats, if you're planning to get one:

* You'll find that the canvas seam inside the bag sheds a thread once in a while. It's part of the charm, so fish it out of the crushed ice and enjoy your extra-charming drink. :-)

* There's a knack to putting the right amount of "smash" on the ice. If you overfill the bag, you'll leave several cubes un-smashed, so don't plan on making six drinks at once with this thing. One or two drinks at a time.

* My icemaker cranks out *really* cold ice. The first time I use the Lewis Bag, the canvas is nice and dry, and it works great. The second time around (if the bag is still a little wet from the first run), the crushed ice immediately freezes onto the wet canvas. It's not a show-stopper, it's just a thing that happens. I might get a second bag and cycle through them to allow for drying time. Or I could, what ... drink less? (Good thing Amazon doesn't tell you how *many* of these things I buy!)

Enjoy!

I put some ice in here and went at it with a wooden mallet and got crushed ice.

It also comes with a "bat" to break the ice, but what's not in the description is that it also is a rather nice muddler.

Love it. Saw this on a YouTube video to make crushed ice. I use it for my home bar. Awesome job. Makes perfect crushed ice after banging a hammer to it. Keeps all ice in bag and absorbs water from ice while crushing. Scoop out ice as needed.
