I appreciate the previous price listing, but with that being a woot-off item, the discussion about the product was just above Zippy.

Anybody like this stuff? Frozen alcoholic drinks?

Dang! Once again...cheaper than Zulily. I bought two from Zulily for $19.98 (and the shipping was more expensive). This is a good deal! I watched a video and this appears to pretty easy.

We have one of the slushy magic things and it works great, but I hate the ice cubes getting all slushy in it. My daughter loves making chocolate milk slushies in it though so I think these would be a much better idea. In the summer I can throw in a Mikes Hard lemonade and enjoy!

It depends on the alcohol content. Depending on the salt % in the walls of the slushy maker, the lowest temperature it can possibly get (if the saltwater solution is completely saturated) is -21.1 degrees C (about the same temperature most home freezers will get).

Pure ethanol freezes at -114 degrees C. A 40% ethanol/water solution (80 proof alcohol) freezes at -23 degrees C, so anything above about 60 proof won't freeze in your freezer, and, thus, wouldn't become a "slushy" either.

So if you're looking to make an Everclear slushy, you're out of luck without some liquid nitrogen or some other means of freezing it.

Best Deal On The WHOLE Internet! I know cause I looked until I got to the end!

The closest was eBay at $25 for two with free shipping. I'm in for 6!

We were disappointed in these. They didn't slush up as much as I hoped, using cold beverage and plenty of time in the freezer.

$14.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond. There is sometimes $5 coupon off if you spend $15 or more. Also, you can use Chase point 2,250 to buy a BBB $25 gift card. I think if the price @ Woot! goes lower, I will go for it. Now, I will wait...I don't need one until summer anyway.. ;)

We have two sets (4 cups total), and primarily make frozen lemonade for the kids.

It works great IF you are willing to use two cups per drink--so, use the first cup as directed, and then transfer the slightly frozen (with a few ice slushy pieces in it, but not much usually) drink to the SECOND fully frozen cup, and follow the same directions again and use the second fully frozen cup to make a beautiful cup of slushy frozen beverage. So 4 frozen cups make 2 awesome slushies-- YUM! A drink takes about 6 minutes to make as we skip the "2 min in the freezer" step with the second cup.

So can anyone compare the resulting product of these to a FCB (frozen carbonated beverage) machine? From the look of the process you would loose most if not all of your CO2 in the process of slushifying your soda.

That's only for one. Woot is giving you two for $15. But by all means, use your points and 5 dollar coupin.

Did you have a problem with one of the videos on the Features tab? I just played both in Chrome just fine.

"if you're looking to make an Everclear slushy"... well, then you have never tried doing a SHOT of Everclear! I did in 1981 and my throat is still scarred!

I haven't used this product, but if it works, you should be able to make frozen highballs, like a jack and coke slushy, Moscow mule, dark n stormy, Cuba libre, etc. There would be enough non-alcoholic liquid to allow it to freeze.

Unless you make it really strong and then you just get slushy soup...

I love how a discussion about Slushy Makers in the kidsWoot! section has devolved into making adult beverages with them.

Having had a couple of these whilst growing up, i was much enamored of the frozen concoctions we could make once the slushie mugs were frozen. now, 35 years later, i think it is about time for my daughter to learn of the joys of a frozen root beer or cherry koolaid.

I got this last time it was up here and have yet to make a successful frozen alcoholic beverage with it. Not even close - no part of it gets frozen. And I used cold vodka and juice like the instructions said.

my kids love these, for milkshakes. that's all we've succesfully made with them. and they only turn out about a double shot worth, enough to fill a kiddy cup maybe.

These are much "cleaner" than the slushy magic versions with the plastic fronzen ice cubes in the cup (the "ice cubes" are in direct contact, so they get the drink all over them), but they don't work as well as the Slushy Magic.

We've made adult beverage slushies with both and the Slushy Magic ones are hands down the better choice for producing an actual slushy. Because of the alcohol content it doesn't "slushy" as well as non-leaded liquids, but definately gets thicker and worst case scenario...soupy.

Gin and tonic slushies...not good.

Vodak/Pineapple...highly recommend.

Our favorite was chocolate mike and Bailey's...doesn't sound good on paper, but on a hot summer's night...they were fantastic.

I bought these last time they were up. THEY SUCK. They don't really work, they aren't "just pour your drink in and you get slushy!" like they make them seem, and in my opinion definitely not worth $15. I've bought a lot of things off woot that I love, but every once in awhile it's junk, and these are junk.

Er... nobody said "just pour and SLUSHIE!"

The instructions clearly state that you have to knead and squeeze the cup to get slushie.

I bought these last time around and they work *great*. Freeze the hell out of them, pour in your drink (avoid high alcohol and diet drinks), stick it back in the freezer (I give it 5 minutes usually) and then squeeze/knead the cup for a few minutes. It'll freeze and set. You just have to be patient. It's also actually a surprisingly good hand workout too.

My main complaint is how small the slushie chamber is. I get why, but it's around 8 ounces max. I usually have to use both cups to get my slushie fix.

How easy are these to clean? It seems from what I'm reading that the material is soft - can you turn them inside out?

I have these and I (and my nieces) love them! We like using plain old orange juice the best, but other fruit juices work great too, a lot better than drink mix type drinks which kind of turn too icy.

Disappointed that they came packaged in one brown box...WITHOUT any instructions on using or care. I purchased as gifts, and now must direct the recipients to the web page.
