Going retro

When I was a kid we had a Dazey ice crusher in the kitchen. It was attached to the cabinet next to the back door. I have no idea what happened to it. Mom probably sold it in a yard sale.

I bought this one on eBay for cheap. As far as I know it’s the one we used to own.

It certainly looks like it.

Why do I love the Dazey ice crusher? It makes better crushed ice than an electric model could. Nothing will cool you off quicker from the summer heat than a tall glass of crushed ice and a spoon.

    I remember those ice crushers! We had one, too. Maybe everyone did back then. And you’re right it made wonderful, almost chunky, crushed ice.

    It looks like a rocket ship!! I still use a hand can opener as I like it way better than the electric one. 🙂 We don’t need any crushed ice here; our weather has hit 70+ about 4 times so far. 😦
