Want ice crusher.

I am looking to buy an ice crusher. I have check out all of the stores in my area and no one sells them. So I went on the internet and was suprised at how many different kind there are. Do you have one and do you like it? I would like one that is about medium size, not too big. Thanks if you can help.

I have a Waring Pro and really like it. I've tried others and the noise alone caused their demise This one makes some noise but it's not bad ..All in all it's the best one I've seen and used.

I have a hand cranked one I bought from Lehman's Hardware. it crushes in 2 sizes. I use it to crush ice to make ice cream. Works great, takes some elbow grease.

I don't have a stand alone ice crusher but my freezer door has ice crusher, sure comes in handy. Funny thing about me, I don't like ice in my beverage when I'm in a restaurant or diner but I will put lots of it in my beverage at home. Mostly because when one orders a cold drink with ice, you get less beverage , the glass is full of ice, therefore, I do not want to pay for ice.

My new fridge will have an ice dispenser in the door, and that includes crushed ice. Otherwise the only other thing I have is an ice shaver for making snow cones and mixed drinks.
Never had a need for anything else.
