amps. (Export voltage is 230VAC.)
We recommend your Paragon Sno-Cone Machine be plugged directly into a dedicated outlet. Extension

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much will my sno-cone machine produce?
Your sno-cone machine was engineered to shave 500 lbs. of cube or chunk ice per hour.
Based on the ratio that a 1/2 lb. of ice will make a 6 oz. sno-cone, the Paragon Sno-Cone
Machine will yield 1000 sno-cones per hour.
How much syrup should I use to flavor my sno-cones?
One 6 oz sno-cone will take 2 ounces of syrup – cones will not hold more than that.
Can I use block ice to make sno-cones?
You can use block ice to produce sno-cones if you first break it down into pieces 3-4 inches
in size. Ice will not fit the horn if the pieces are too large.
