Swan ice shavers have been recognized as the best in the industry for several decades. Among the reasons that Swan has remained at the top of the field is the consistent performance of their machines, producing perfectly textured shaved ice that rapidly absorbs the flavors of the syrup. Their machines are also tested to meet both health and safety requirements, which is particularly important if you are considering opening a small businesses.

Types of Swan Ice Shavers

The type of machine that you buy will depend on how much business you intend to do. If you are expecting a high volume of sales, you should consider the SI-100E or SI-200E, both of which are easy to operate and hold seven or eight pounds of ice, respectively. These machines take blocks of ice, which may or may not be available in your area, and may be possible for you to make if you want to invest in more equipment.

If you cannot get blocks of ice, but still want the texture of your shaved ice to be similar to that which would come from a block, the FM-800E uses ice cubes. For a party, the SI-3B is appropriate, and a great conversation piece. This is a hand cranked ice shaver that takes blocks of ice and has an antique appearance. As it does not require electricity, it could be set up anywhere to make shaved ice.

If you are considering adding shaved ice to your menu, you should consider Swan ice shavers as your staff will be able to learn quickly how to operate them. On a hot summer day, if customers want something to cool them down other than ice cream, shaved ice may be a nice surprise for them. If you are going to take the plunge and start selling shaved ice, begin by looking to the industry leader so that you get off to the right start.
