I have several vintage hand crank Rival Ice-O-Mats and they are ok, but don’t really get as fine of a crush as I like. I also I have around a half dozen of the electric vintage Rival ice-O-Mats. They look really cool with this art deco thing going on, an asymmetric shape to it that looks a bit like Gumby’s head, and those 50’s colors like avocado, pinky beige, plus black, or white. They only work ok, not great, they melt a lot of the ice and don’t crush consistent, and too large most of the time. I got them for around $10-15 each and give them out as presents to bartender and cocktail enthusiast friends, just for fun, not serious ice crushing.
By the way, the Waring pro ice crusher is terrible, and crazy expensive.
This style below is probably the best. I can’t recommend a brand, but the price is right, and Amazon has their great return policy. I have seen these used in some high capacity tiki and cocktail bars.
Personally, both for at home, and in bars I consult to, I use a Lewis bag and rubber or wood mallet. Wood looks cooler, but rubber mallet works better.
This company has some fantastic bar tools. (Note: I know the companies owner and much of the staff.) This is a good starter set up.
Although I was able to find canvas money bags online and bought a few dozen. With cheaper ones you may have to get the seems sewn with tougher thread. You preferably want the 12"x19". You can get them on ebay or at bank supply stores.
Bank supply, very inexpensive. Don’t know quality but they look good.
