you read and follow all general warnings, safeguards and
Read the instructions provided in this booklet carefully, as
they give important information with regards to the assembly,
use and maintenance. Preserve this manual carefully for
future reference.
This ice shaver is intended for household use only.
This ice shaver has a blade that is extremely sharp. Use
extreme caution during assembly, operation,
disassembly and while cleaning the unit. If the blade
becomes broken or loose, do not use the appliance.
After unpacking the unit and before each use, make sure the
mechanical parts of the unit and all its attachments are
intact. Look for any foreign objects before operating the ice
shaver. In case of doubts, do not use the appliance and refer
to the manufacturer.
To prevent electrical shock to yourself or others, do not
immerse the cord, plugs, motor unit or any other electrical

Before plugging the appliance into a power source, make
sure the voltage details marked on the appliance seal/plaque
correspond to those of your power supply. The seal/plaque
is located on the motor unit.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than
the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit a polarized
outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified
electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.
In the event that the wall socket and the appliance plug are
not compatible, have the socket changed by a qualified
professional, who must also ensure that the cross section of
the socket wiring corresponds to the power consumed by the
appliance. Generally speaking, adapters, multiple sockets,
extension cords and/or drop cords should not be used.
However, if necessary, only use single or multiple adapters
and extension cables which comply with the existing safety
standards, making sure that the current carrying capacity
limits, marked on the single adapter and on the extension
cables, as well as the maximum power limit marked on the
multiple adapter, are not exceeded.
Do not use the machine around a hot surface or hot
appliances. Keep the appliance away from stovetops,
broilers, ovens or any other potentially hot appliance. Pay
special attention to the electrical cord to prevent it from
touching a hot surface.
This appliance must only be used for the purposes it was
designed for, i.e. for crushing/shaving ice in the home. Any
other use must be considered improper and therefore
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot be held responsible for
any damages deriving from improper, incorrect and
unreasonable uses.
The use of any additional accessory attachments not
recommended by Hawaiian Shaved Ice is not suggested.

injury to yourself or others.

Have fun with Shaved Ice
There is so much more that you can do with shaved ice than just simply
shaving ice in a bowl and adding flavor. Try these great recipes below for
fun and easy treats.
The Classic Shaved Ice – Shave a mountain of fluffy snow into a small
bowl or ice cup. Add premium shaved ice flavor from
HawaiianShavedIce.com and enjoy. The flavor will be absorbed into the ice.
Remember that a little flavor goes a long way. You want to eat shaved ice
with a spoon not drink it with a straw!
Dipped Delight – Take a small bowl or ice cup and add a scoop of vanilla or
your favorite flavor of ice cream to the bottom of the cup. Shave ice on top
of the ice cream and top with your favorite syrup from
HawaiianShavedIce.com. Enjoy the combination treat! A big seller at
shaved ice stands all across the country!
Rainbow Shaved Ice – Shave a mountain of fluffy snow into a small bowl or
ice cup. Take two or more flavors and pour over the shaved ice to create a
rainbow effect. Try mixing colors like yellow and blue to get a green stripe
down the middle. Very popular!
Slush Drinks – Dilute one part shaved ice syrup to three parts water. Add
the mixture over a tall cup of shaved ice. Pour just enough syrup mixture to
cover the ice to keep it slushy. A great refreshing treat!
Soda Ice – Nothing helps make your favorite soda more refreshing than a
tall cup of shaved ice. Pour your favorite soda over shaved ice and enjoy!
Fruit Ice – Instead of shaved ice syrup or soda, try natural fruit juices,
lemonade or even tea over shaved ice. Serve these treats at your next party
and it will be a hit!
Mixed Drinks – Instead of having your alcoholic drink on the rocks, try
serving it over shaved ice. This also works well with margaritas, smoothies
and other frozen drinks!
Shaved Ice Toppings
Sweetened Condensed Milk/Sweet Cream – This is the most popular
topping used at shaved ice stands. Purchase a can of sweetened
condensed milk from your local grocery store. Then, simply pour a small
dose of sweetened condensed milk over your flavored shaved ice treat and
Evaporated Milk – If you want to give your shaved ice a creamy flavor, add
a dose of evaporated milk over the top of your flavored shaved ice treat. Mix
gently with your spoon and enjoy! This is especially great with Vanilla,
Peach, Banana, Pina Colada and Coconut.
Marshmallow Topping – Add a dab to your next shaved ice treat to make it
extra special.
Fresh Fruit – Try adding a fruit garnish to your shaved ice treat to make it
tasty! Popular garnishes include cherries, pineapples, bananas, oranges,
lemons and limes.
Other Shaved Ice Uses – Use shaved ice to make an ice bed for serving
shrimp, seafood or other cold items.
