Q. Are the machines easy to use?
Absolutely. When we arrive we show you how to make a batch and we make the first one for you. Once we get the machine set up all you do is drink and maybe make more. Refill when the light comes on and turn off the machine when you are done. Best of all, your guests can serve themselves so you can enjoy the party!

Q. How long does it take the machine to freeze?
Single Machine takes between 40-80 minutes to freeze depending on the temperature around the machine. This machine can freeze in high temps outdoors.

Q. What is the differance between the Single Machine and the 2 Bowl Granita Machine?
The Single Machine freezes in 40-80 minutes and once frozen there is not delay between batches. A "MIX OUT" light comes on when the top of the machine is running low and it is time to refill. As long as you keep mix in the top of the machine you shouldn't run out of frozen. This machine can freeze up to 5 gallons of mix per hour (this rating is at indoor temp).
The 2 Bowl Granita Machine takes 90-120 minutes to freeze. If you run out of mix on 1 of the bowls and want to make more it will take an additional 90-120 minutes for that batch to freeze. This machine is best for long duration events or short events that wont need more than 2 batches of mix (roughly 100-120 servings).

Q. How big are the machines?
Both styles of machine are commercial grade machines that are about the size of a large microwave. They are delivered on a skirted cart with that stays with the machine. The carts are about 17 inches wide and about 3 ft deep so they fit in most areas. The machine sits on the cart at a perfect height for self servings your frozen beverages.

No. Sorry but the machines are too heavy to lift up any staircases. With the exception of a single step we avoid stairs altogether.

No! All you do is drink and turn it off when you are done. When we pick up the machine the day after your event we will drain the machine and take it away.
