Shaved ice is a lite and refreshing dessert perfect for hot days. It consists of shaved down ice enhanced with flavorful syrups. Although it sounds simple to make, you must use the right machine for the job. For many, that product is the Hatsuyuki® HC8E Cube Ice Shaver. Below are a few advantages of using this innovative device.

Why Invest in a Hatsuyuki Ice Shaving Machine?

1. Safety

Nothing matters more than safety, especially if your job involves serving the public. To remain compliant and avoid failing inspections, you should do everything you can to maintain a clean workspace. The Hatsuyuki ice machine makes it simple with its thoughtful construction. It features an acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic cover, which is a food-grade thermoplastic material that tolerates temperature fluctuations well.

The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) considers its components safe to use, and it stops completely whenever the inlet cover opens. You also don’t have to worry about longevity or premature failure; the blades last through repeated use, and it features convenient extras like a foot pedal and blade selection knob to customize usage.

2. Versatility

HatsuyukiThe Hatsuyuki machine also offers convenience. Because it weighs less than 50 pounds, it’s ideal for both large- and small-scale operations. Consider adding it to your eating establishment if you want to add shaved ice to the menu, or you might want to make it emphasize it by adding one to your food cart or concession stand. You can even use it at a sporting event or an amusement park. The product contains a 40AH deep cycle marine battery, which powers the device continuously—enough to serve at least 500 or more shaved ice orders within eight hours.

3. Texture

Many people confuse shaved ice with a snow cone. While the latter boasts larger granules of ice, shaved desserts are lighter and airier. But to achieve that desired texture, you need a machine that can deliver the result. The Hatsuyuki works meticulously to break down the ice, creating a material that’s lightweight, powdery, and airy, instead of thick and crunchy. It’s easier and more enjoyable for consumers to eat.
