A slushie machine for hire slowly freezes a mix of certain juice flavour and water to make a nice smooth and refreshing drink. If you one like to use one for your next party, it would be very helpful to know the basic steps on how to operate it.

1. Plug the slushy machine into a reliable circuit. A basic power outline will certainly work just fine.But you need to be sure that there are no other electrical devices plugged into it. Avoid using an extension cord, as this could cause a surge which can damage the slush machine.

2. Pour the drink mix and water into the five-gallon bucket. If you are referring to a drink recipe, see to it that you stick with the indicated ratio of water and juice mix, as you will be mixing a larger quantity of the drink. In this case, the water will take the place of your ice. See to it that the quantity of your mixture is 4 gallons for non-alcoholic drink, and 5 gallons for alcoholic.

4. Observe your mixture through the window in front of the machine. When it begins to be cloudy, the ice is already forming. This gives you the idea that the drink is almost ready to serve. When you see the cloudy consistency, wait for around 20 to 30 minutes to make sure that the mixture is fully ready.
