SNOW CONE MACHINES
Snow cone machines are very easy to use and very profitable - 80% or higher profit margins are common. To make consistent snow cone profits you must start with the right raw product, which is the ice itself. All snow cone machines need good quality clear cube or chunk ice. For best results, all ice, cube or chunk needs to temper out - warm up enough to soften slightly prior to use. The best results come when the ice is allowed to warm to about 25 degrees (-4 centigrade).
SNOW CONE BASICS
A snow cone is produced by a machine that grinds the ice to create a chunky coarse snow product. Topped with an ounce of special snow cone syrup that goes to the bottom creating the world's coldest most refreshing drink. Snow cone machines are not as costly as the ice shavers.
Most Gold Medal snow cone machine models have a display case. The machine shown on the right is a typical snow cone machine. To operate, simply lift the pusher handle, fill with chunks of ice, turn on the motor and pull the handle. You can vary the fineness of the finished snow by using colder ice, putting less pressure, or setting the blades to shave more finely.
A high output snow cone machine can shave up to 500 pounds of ice per hour. Shave ice machines do not have a display area.
One of our most popular snow cone machine is the Gold Medal Sno-Konette, which was the world's first complete ice shaver with a display case. A lot changes have been made since it's inception back in 1947 - there have been dozens of improvements! The Sno-Konette and Shav-A-Doo family of snow cone machines have a model that's right for you.
SHAVE-A-DOO SNOW CONE MACHINES
The Shav-A-Doos are one our most economical snow cone machines. These are entry level snow cone makers for customers with lower volume ice shaving needs. Uses Plexiglas windows rather than the tempered glass that is featured on the larger machines. The welded frame reduces leaks from melted ice but we highly recommend the optional drip pan to safely catch condensation.

SNO-KONETTE SNOW CONE MACHINES
The original snow cone machine that began life back in 1947 and is still our best seller. The Deluxe Sno-Konette is very popular with rental outfits beaus of the added safety of a momentary push-button motor switch to keep both hands busy. UL approved and tempered glass (except for the Sno-King).
