The Rise of Shaved Ice
How a nifty little machine saved my sanity from the scorching heat.

Sleek in its design, the Hawaiian Shaved Ice Machine dismantles easily for cleaning and storing away in the colder months. But let’s not think about putting this away just yet. Not when there is so much fun to be had with it while the weather is still warm and the sun casts long lingering shadows on the hot pavement.
With a 55W motor, this little machine powerfully shaves ice into a fine powdery consistency in seconds. To operate, one simply fills the ice chamber to the brim, pops on the top, and pushes down on the button. Then magic happens: the ice is pushed down in a circular motion against a sharp blade, resulting in a delicious blank icy canvas, soft like freshly fallen snow, ready to be drenched with syrup or added to a variety of desserts.
This machine is so easy to use, my 3 year old can do it!
