- Shaved ice, we're testing three differenttypes of shaved ice machines.
One hand-cranked one, and two electronic ones.
There's so many different types of shaved ice,the one that I'm used to eating is called bingsu.
It's the Korean style, it's so delicious.
My mom used to make it for me growing up.
And she used to top our bingsu with ice cream,and it was the best part.
Today I'm looking for really beautiful, fluffy shaved ice.
The first machine I'm gonna test is this guy.
I think I used this like 25 years ago.
From my memory it worked really well,especially for the price, this is like $23.
Super cheap and affordable.
This guy comes with this little plastic tubeso you can freeze your ice.
Basically you're placing your big ice cube in the cylinder,closing this, and then you'll just like hand-crank it.
So, quite simple.
It's like a workout.
And from that, one block of ice,I get this much shaved ice.
It's almost like too like chippy.
It's not fluffy enough, I want fluff, I want snow.
If you can chew the ice, that means it's not good flakes.
You want it to just immediately melt.
I feel like the blade in this, and the spacebetween the gap just makes the ice too chunky.
I was considering getting this machineto do tableside shaved ice at my restaurants,but I'm not sure that this is the quality thatI wanna use for the restaurant so, moving on to the next.
This is your classic snow cone machine,which is very different than shaved ice.
So, I'm a little bit concerned that this is most likelygonna be just not the product that I'm looking for.
Doesn't come with a mold, so you'll justbe putting regular ice in this compartmentand then, it'll shave it for you.
And, mind you, this one is electronic.
And your ice will shave directly into this box.
But, what's cool about this is that you don'tlike need a bowl or anything, and it's actuallykind of fun, and it's really cute, it looks like,you know, a mini carnival happening.
You wanna add the ice first.
Already you see, like huge chunks of ice.
I know that this is a snow cone maker,and not a shaved ice machine, but I was curiousto see if the ice would be fluffy.
When your ice does that, no.
I am most curious and excited for this onebecause it costs $108 and it calls itselfthe fluffy ice machine.
So, this one also comes with the mold.
So, to unlock you twist and pull up.
Place the ice in.
(whirring)Oh my God.
Okay, so speedwise, really quick.
That was literally like two seconds.
(sighing) I'm disappointed.
It's clumpy, it's chunky.
So, I realized that the blade needs to beas retracted as possible, so you wantto be just scratching the surface of the ice.
So, I have it on that setting,and we'll see if it makes a different product.
You see that the ice actually built up,that's like what I want.
It's more fluffy, you can tell.
But I'm gonna taste it and see.
And it's not as crunchy, it melts pretty immediately.
Super excited to try the milkbecause I feel like, not only the flavor,but it'll just be so snowy and beautiful.
(whirring)It looks beautiful.
You see how it's building up like a mountain.
That's kind of like what I wanna see, immediately.
There's no like chunky ice particles.
It's moving when I flip it.
This is legit.
Yes!Next, we're gonna build the actual bingsu.
Mm, that bite is just like worth it.
It's worth it.
We love this.
The other two machines, the ice is a little bit too coarse.
For the $23 hand-crank machine, it's not too bad'cause it's super cheap, but I think that if you wantthe real, true experience of shaved iceyou should definitely splurge and try this guy out.
Because it is pretty amazing.
