Metrokane Retro Ice Crusher

Metrokane Retro Ice Crusher : Attractive and compact with a classic Art Deco 1950s design, the Metrokane Retro Ice Crusher crushes up to a quart of ice less than a minute. Crushing ice for frozen margaritas, martinis and daiquiris, the Metrokane ice crusher also produces ice beds for serving seafood, fresh fruit and vegetables, ice cream and other chilled foods. Simply turn handle clockwise for fine crushed ice; counter-clockwise for coarse crushed ice. As professional bartenders know, crushed ice makes manhattans, martinis and other cocktails taste smoother and cooler than if using ice cubes. The heavy duty all-metal top with a polished chrome finish fits on a clear base so you can monitor the crushing process. Destined to be one of your favorite bar tools, the Metrokane ice crusher offers a lifetime warranty on moving parts. Includes recipes for mixed drinks. Metrokane was founded in 1983 by Riki Kane, creator of the popular newspaper word game, "Wordy Gurdy." Kane successfully re-introduced the manual juicer to American market with a classic retro design called The Mighty OJ. Today Metrokane produces a wide selection of innovative barware and wine accessory products.

It is difficult to hold when crushing ice. the bottom is too light and slides around on the counter even after I put rubber grippers on the bottom.

I really like the Ice Crusher and used it to make crushed ice for Mint Juleps at my Kentucky Derby Party. I crushed the ice ahead of time and kept it in a metal bowl in the freezer and it was great to have the crushed ice ready to go for the party.
