Nothing beats the heat on a hot day like inhaling frozen treats. The quickest way to frozen dessert nirvana is a snow cone, made with a Little Snowie 2.

Put away your antique Little House on the Prairie hand-cranked ice shaver. It’s cumbersome, and making a single cone takes more elbow grease than it does to lift a sedan. Do what the pros do: use an electric ice shaver that pulverizes simple cubes into soft, powdery snow. The dispensing tube even makes shaping that iconic dome easy as heck.

I wish there was more to it, but there isn’t. Ice goes in the top, you push it down, and in seconds you get the makings of a delicious frozen dessert. Sure, burly strong men can use it, but so can kids. There’s not a blade in sight. The Little Snowie 2 even comes with six tasty syrups and reusable spoons, so you can use your machine straight out of the box. 

Enterprising frozen treat fans might even orchestrate a pop-up, selling snow cones for a buck a pop. It beats lemonade any day. And because it’s lightweight and powerful, snow cones are only an instant away…anywhere. The Little Snowie 2 ice shaver is available online for just over $200.
