DD got one for her birthday/Christmas from her Aunty.
I can say we have not used it for a month.
My only question is- if you have to freeze the unit prior to using it, is there much point since iceblocks can be made with moulds in the freezer anyway?
I think it's more that you can watch them freeze before your eyes.
DH snapped on stick the second day.
You have to use high sugar drinks or they get stuck. Mind you a few of ours go stuck and we used apple juice which is high in sugar.
The sticks are thick so eating the icey pole around it you kind of end up biting the stick alot.
Personally I would not spend money on it.
