Making the ice was more difficult than I had expected but with some research and trial and error I have a simple but effective process. You need a plastic bucket made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) of around 3/4 to 1 gallon size. Interior dimensions should be 7 to no more than 8 inches wide at the bottom and no taller than 6 to 7 inches. You want the ice to freeze from the sides and bottom with the top freezing last. Tap water works fine. Pour the water into the bucket to within about 1-1/2 inches of the top. I cut 2 circular pieces of pink wall foam board to just fit inside the top of the bucket. Wrap those in plastic wrap so the foam doesn't come into contact with your water and place on top of the water in the bucket. Put the bucket in the freezer for 24-36 hours depending on the temp of your freezer. I tried experimenting with the freezer temp but it didn't seem to matter as along as it was below +10 degrees F.
Once the ice is frozen solid remove the bucket from the freezer and carefully use an ice/chocolate chipper (6 prongs with a rubber handle for grip) to chip the top of the ice flat and level. Brush the chips from the ice and let it sit a room temp for 15 minutes or so until the ice can be easily removed from the bucket.
Place the ice in the machine with the very smooth bottom side down. If the ice is still really cold it may stick to the brass plate for a few minutes till it warms a bit. Center the ice in the machine by evenly aligning it with the spike plate. Use light pressure to make the spikes bite into the ice. You must have the ice reasonably centered in the machine or it will shake and wobble. For safety always have the blade completely retracted when inserting or removing an ice block and when cleaning the machine.
Put the safety guard in place. To shave ice start the machine (I highly recommend getting a foot pedal) and then slowly adjust the blade until it just starts shaving ice. The shallower the blade goes into the ice the finer the ice will be. Just a little practice and you can quickly get it where you want it with each use. Now you are shaving ice to compete with the best of the shave ice shops out there. I use a container to catch my ice in when making just a few but shave directly into flower cups for parties and get-togethers when I need to make 12 or more at a time and run an assembly line with help. One block of ice will make 6-10 servings depending on the size of your cups.
Use a quality syrup. I like the syrups from Hawaiian Shaved Ice (Mary Mac's). The pourers that just push into the bottle opening make it much easier to control the syrup and get an even pour. For adding cream flavor to a shaved ice serving I've found that melted vanilla ice cream is a much better taste than sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk. To go over-the-top put a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the bottom of the cup before adding the shaved ice and syrup then top with the melted vanilla ice cream.
I also threw in a few suggestions on what not to do as well as links to where I purchased my additional items for it. Let me know if you have any questions and I will try to answer them.
This thing is large and heavy. It's basically a small drill press dressed in cool plastic. It's well packed, and no damage from shipping. The machine is mostly assembled. I did have to put the feet on and the handle on. The screw and the press that holds the block of ice down was covered in machine grease and wrapped in plastic. Get a towel and wipe some of the excess off.
Usage is pretty simple. Just put in a block of ice. Use the lever to engage the block of ice, then turn on. that's it. Ice comes out very quickly. You can adjust the angle of the blade to change the consistency of the ice. I find that no matter what, I can't make the super fine, fluffy ice that we had when in Hawaii. Close, but not really the same. Perhaps it's the ambiance of chilling in Hawaii that made shaved ice taste better there.
Clean up is supper easy. Just a wet towel. Overall I like this machine a lot. I'll give a word of caution. Kids will be drawn to this machine, but it's no toy. Like I said, it's basically a drill press. The press has sharp barbs that hold the ice, and there's a blade that cuts the ice. And ice can fling off in chunks. Keep little hands away from the machine!!
