Smashing Ice!

We used to use all sorts of bags for breaking up ice, usually resulted in breaking up bag too. I bought a few nylon PE bags, work a treat.
A little thing, but handy.
We have an Ice maker but sometimes we need an ice slurry. I picked up an old skool metal, meat mincer, from a charity shop for a quid.

Bashing it works out some frustrations though! :laughing:

Bet you dont see those old mincers in charity shops much :(

I have a similar old contraption for cheese grating at home.
 
We always tip our ice cubes into a washing up bowl then crush them with a brick in the sink - low tech and satisfying!
 
We bought a crushed ice maker from Germany. Only makes about an ice bucket full at a time but quick and more than enough. Only £600 and money well spent as it saves so much flying ice. Also means I can grab it quickly when I forget the ice as usual.
I love my ice machine and ice crusher, saves so much time. I'd love an ice machine for home.
