***** update - 6/22/15 ***** This ice crusher has started dropping small flecks of plastic in with my ice. That being said I'm changing my original 5 star rating to 2 stars. The flecks are not mildew, I only run clear ice through this machine even though the book says you can do flavored ice and the flecks are hard like the plastic housing on this ice crusher. I was trying to be cheap. I should have bought an all metal unit in the first place.
My only complaint or concern is that owner must be careful when operating the Deni 6100 Ice Crusher. I recommend that the user place the ice on the trapdoor, push down the lever and then step back while closing one's eyes. Sometimes bits of ice will shoot outward when the ice falls inside and the crushing begins before the trapdoor has a chance to spring shut. Spitting chunks of ice is why the ice cubes should be crushed one at a time. It is best to allow one cube to be completely crushed before allowing another one to drop inside. The plastic tray will only hold about one cup of crushed ice at a time before becoming full. Seriously, it only takes about one to two minutes to crush one cup of ice. This is much easier and less time consuming than doing it with a hammer. Most of my recipes for the Big Boss Torpedo only requires one cup of ice. My fruit juices, smoothies and strawberry daiquiris are more delicious now that I began using crushed ice produced by the Deni 6100.
The operating booklet that came with the Deni 6100 was easy to read and I was able to use this appliance within five minutes after taking it out of its box, which is strong enough to be reused for storage. The crushing blades are stainless steel and, therefore, don't require cleaning. If one uses ice cubes made from frozen soft drinks, Kool-aid, liquor, etc., then one must crush a few cups of ice cubes made from water in order to clean the blades. (I will never use anything but ice cubes made from tap water.) Also, there is a black serving spoon that comes with the Deni 6100 Ice Crusher. However, it is very thin and delicate. Afraid that it would break when I washed it, I put the serving spoon away for safe keeping and used one of my regular stainless steel spoons for scooping ice out of the plastic tray and into my measuring cups. According to the booklet, the removable tray can be used as an ice bucket but I don't see this happening, unless your bottles of liquor are the miniature ones that are served on airplanes.
If one needs crushed ice for their blender recipes and their refrigerator doesn't dispense it, then I highly recommend purchasing the Deni 6100 Automatic 70-Watt Stainless-Steel Ice Crusher. It is one of the best investments I ever made. For its low price, ease of usage, and attractiveness, you can't beat it. My only recommendation to the manufacturer is that they design an ice crusher that allows customers to insert batteries in order to make it more portable. With batteries, the ice crusher can easily be taken anywhere, even outdoors on a picnic. Sometimes, when you transport an appliance to a party at school, work or church, there is a shortage of electrical outlets.

Yes, people complained about one ice cube at a time, that is not the case.
I have an ice maker and can put two to three cubes at a time and it crushes a large glass full within a minute! It makes perfect crushed ice and it's not loud like trying to use a blender.
I HIGHLY recommend this product for those of you considering the purchase!
Happy Summer drinking :)
The top half of the machine is a hollow chamber with the machine's one exposed moving part, a spinning set of blades like from a blender, on the bottom. Ice ricochets around the chamber violently and will move around counter, though not too bad. Ice cubes are dropped through a trap door. If cube is large and door must be opened all the way, ice will likely rocket back up and out before it can even snap closed. The included clear plastic safety shield to cover this area is worthless except for keeping the door clean when not in used. I'm actually interested as to why they even suggest it is for safety. Because it is impossible to use it during the most crucial moments of use (even with fast hands), I don't think it could even stave off a lawsuit. I don't think the ice is really coming out in such a way that I'll ever be hurt...but it's unpredictable.
