Nostalgia Electrics Retro Series SnowNow I don't know about you, but I tend to be rather dubious of appliances whose name begins with Nostalgia. The indication right off is that they are emulating something fondly remembered from long ago, while completely ignoring the quality and craftsmanship that made the memory a fond one.

That being said, this Retro Series Snow-Cone Machine doesn't need to accomplish much outside of shaving ice cubes into fluffy snow for your enjoyment. The machine itself has a suitably tacky shell of metallic red plastic with chrome accents to match all the other Retro appliances in the series. Perfect for your 50's inspired kitchen.

The snow cone maker uses regular size ice cubes; you add them to the top compartment and the stainless steel blades shave them into the chamber for dispensing. This comes with two reusable plastic cones and features cone holders built into the side of the machine for paper cones. The unit is only rated at 40-watts, so best used for limited duration. For a practical, long lasting snow cone maker I would consider shopping around for a better alternative.

Users have been mixed in their reviews. Some love it and some, well, hate it. Problems include blades warping, excessive noise and plastic parts breaking off with use. Nostalgia Electrics provides a 90 day limited warranty with this unit.
