  • -Shaved ice, we're testing three different types 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 tube

  • so 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.

  • No.

  • I feel like the blade in this, and the space between the gap just makes the ice too chunky.

  • I was considering getting this machine to do tableside shaved ice at my restaurants,

  • but I'm not sure that this is the quality that I 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 likely gonna be just not the product that I'm looking for.

  • Doesn't come with a mold,

  • so you'll just be putting regular ice in this compartment

  • and 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't like need a bowl or anything,

  • and it's actually kind of fun, and it's really cute,

  • it looks like, you know, a mini carnival happening.

  • You wanna add the ice first.

  • Close this.

  • It's slow.

  • 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 curious to see if the ice would be fluffy.

  • When your ice does that, no.

  • I am most curious and excited for this one

  • because it costs $108 and it calls itself the fluffy ice machine.

  • So, this one also comes with the mold.

  • So, to unlock you twist and pull up.

  • Place the ice in.

  • Oh my God.

  • Okay, so speedwise, really quick.

  • That was literally like two seconds.

  • I'm disappointed.

  • It's clumpy, it's chunky.

  • So, I realized that the blade needs to be as retracted as possible,

  • so you want to 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.

  • Okay.

  • All right.

  • 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.

  • Um hm.

  • And it's not as crunchy, it melts pretty immediately.

  • Super excited to try the milk

  • because I feel like, not only the flavor,

  • but it'll just be so snowy and beautiful.

  • It looks beautiful.

  • You see how it's building up like a mountain.

  • That's kind of like what I wanna see, immediately.

  • Ta-dah.

  • There's no like chunky ice particles.

  • It's moving when I flip it.

  • Melts immediately.

  • 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 want the real, true experience of shaved ice

  • you should definitely splurge and try this guy out.

  • Because it is pretty amazing.

  • For more product reviews like this

  • check out our friends at The Verge.

  • But one of the most fun things to ride with an electric motor in it is an electric skateboard.

  • And believe it or not the market's actually grown enough over the last two years that some of the--
