The Ugolini Slush Machine weighs up to 180 lbs, so ensure that you place it on a stable surface or use the cart that it comes with to prevent accidents.
It’s also crucial to have a grounded wall outlet nearby, or use a three-prong extension cord if needed. Keep in mind that the cord must be rated for outdoor use and be the correct gauge for the length of the cord.
Preparing Slush Mix
It’s best to prepare and refrigerate the slush mix before the event to save time and ensure the machine works efficiently. At River City Events in Edmonton, we offer a range of flavors, including:
To prepare the mix, mix one jug with four parts water and refrigerate it. A chilled mix will take only 30 minutes to turn into slush, while a non-chilled liquid can take up to 1.5 hours.
Preventing Leaks & Spills
Transporting the machine can cause the hoppers to come loose, leading to leaks and spills if you don’t put them back into place.
To prevent this, simply press down on the hoppers so that the clip, pictured below, clicks into place. The hoppers should now beleveled and fixed. The clip, pictured
Also, remove the two drip trays from the hopper and slide their prongs underneath the front of the machine. The drip trays should be lined up with the edge of the machine.
Adding Slush Mix
Next, add the slush mix to each hopper of the machine, making sure that it covers the auger but doesn’t go above the ‘MAX’ line indicated on the outside.
If adding alcohol to the mix, do so after dispensing the slush. Finally, reattach the hopper lids after pouring in the mix.
Turning On the Machine
To turn on the machine, locate the operations switches beneath the plastic flaps on the front of the machine.
The refrigeration control switch toggles between a liquid drink (‘I’ option) and slush (‘II’ option). Turn on the main power switch and switch the refrigeration control switch to ‘II.’ The machine will hum as the augers start spinning.
(Please note there is no need to touch the thermostat control knob, as it’s already set to the correct temperature).
Now there’s nothing left to do but wait for the mix to turn to slush!
Best Practices for Serving
To keep the machine performing optimally, keep it indoors away from direct sunlight and any other objects that may interfere with it.
Also, ensure that the machine is still on ‘II’ switch mode even when dispensing the slush, or it may revert to a more liquid form.
Finally, make sure you have pre-chilled mix on hand so you can add it as you serve.
Cleaning the Machine
Once everyone has had their fill, toggle the refrigeration control switch from ‘II’ to “I,’ allowing the ice to melt and making it easier to dispense.
To avoid a $50 cleaning fee, ensure that all product has been emptied from the hoppers. To do this, add warm (not hot) water to the hoppers and let them run for another minute.
Once the hoppers are empty, wipe down the outside of the machine with mild soap and water, and empty the drip trays before putting them back into the hopper for transport
