I love this machine because you can make the best frozen drinks and slushes or even smoothies. It only takes a few short minutes to make an entire jar full of drinks to serve to guests at a party or share with your family. You could also freeze the rest for later. You put the ice in one compartment and the ingredients for the drink in the other compartment and you will finish will a delicious drink every time. It is one of the best machines that I have in my household.
