Just spend the £42 on slush puppies, you'll be bored sh1tless of it by th'end of the summer.
I buy 5 litre bottles for £25 I think it is, but then you dilute it before you put it in so it last ages, you just have to find the right ratio for you, in this I do 300ml syrup to 200ml water, on my other machine it's 400/100. It's better using Rock salt in this as well, the salt is there to stop the ice from melting to quickly so that the machine stays colder for longer so you can make more slush drink. But YOU ARE NOT DRINKING THE SALT, the salt and ice go in the middle of the silver canister, and the liquid you pour in goes around the silver canister, so then the ice in middle and the rotating of it turns the liquid into the ice drink. Not sure if I was clear, but if you YouTube it then you can see instructions on how it works, but the ice and the salt on the inside, do not come in to contact with the liquid on the outside.
I want one like the corner shops all they do is add syrup and turn it on and it becomes slushy. Why do we have to add salt and ice, there has to be another way to just switch the power on and make it icy. The one reason is not buying is because you need a lot of salt and ice then syrup it's too much the expense is unbearable
I love my one, just have to make sure you but the silver part you see in the picture in the freezer for a while before you start making your drinks, I use the syrup from www.slushsyrup.co.uk and have been for years, I got this machine last year and have a snow come maker machine as well, use both for drinks and been a god send this summer.
It is a lot smaller but it has saved me quite a lot this summer I did pay £35 for mine last year but this price is the best I've seen in a while heat added.
