Read a few mixed reviews for this. I can only imagine that the unsuccessful slushes are a result of using sweetened drinks that have aspartame, saccharin etc. Trust me this works and as soon as everyone has cottoned on to how good they are, they will sell outmy son adores slush puppies but is only allowed to have them a couple of times a year as he is sensitive to the additives. This more than makes up for it. We have so far used every variation of shloer which stays fizzy. Unlike slush puppies it stays frozen until the end. It seems to work quicker if you leave it for about 2 minutes before you scrape the first ice crystals from the side. After that – it transforms very quickly. I would love to say that it works well for other drinks, such as fresh juices etc but my son has adored the shloer so much that he isn’t fixing what isn’t broke. It is so good that i will be buying several as gifts and more for the family as my son cannot wait the necessary time between drinks.
It does work however, you have to have the right drink to put in it. Bit disappointed when simple drinks don’t turn to slush.
Works in some freezers but not in others, difficult to get working.

, Good for a treat
Absolutely brilliant my daughter loves it and uses it all the time. Have tried various slushy maker cups – this beats them all .
Well packaged, but disappointed by the quality or quantity of slush generated. Wouldn’t recommend it sadly. Rating it 3 as it did the job to some degree.
Bought this for our daughter & she has loved using it. She has two which are used in rotation all the time.
Slightly over priced but i really wanted a slushie at the time of purchase. I’ve used it enough now to warrant the high price.
Bought this for my daughter’s 8th birthday and works perfectly. We followed the instructions carefully, and used pure 100% apple juice (real sugar) – it worked ‘like magic’ she said. She is looking forward to trying other drinks, particularly of the chocolate persuasion.
Really great product, i immediately purchased two and so far i’ve used them pretty frequently and it works very well.
I bought this as a stocking filler for my two sons, it makes great slushes and thick shakes with a little patience. A bit on the pricey side for what is basically a plastic beaker and spoon with an ice pack liner.
Easy to use and fun to have.
Keeps it cool and is really easy to make. Unlike other slushie makers i’ve had this one has lasted and still in good condition.
