It is good for one year past the manufacturing date on the bottle, however we do recommend trying to use your mix within 6 months for optimum flavor and color quality.
You should start your machine 1.5 to 2 hours before you intend to serve.
You should never use bleach or soak plastic parts in bleach to clean. Warm soapy water should be used instead.
You can prepare your mix in the mixing jugs provided, and store them in a refrigerator or in the machine set to cold.
That comes from the amount of moisture in the air. In the same way a glass of ice water “sweats” the moisture in the air condenses when it comes in contact with the cold machine. Because of how cold the machine is, it sometimes freezes. You can try turning up the machine temperature setting to remedy the issue, but it is completely normal and the machine will function fine even if nothing is done.
Each case of mix has 6 bottles. Each bottle fills a bowl. So each case fills a machine bowl 6 times.
Yes, you should wash and rinse the machine before being used, to make sure nothing fell in the machine during the packing process.
Every 2 to 3 weeks you should do a deep clean, and rinse out the machine with hot water between flavor changes.
Make a batch of frozen product first thing in the morning in the machine. Drain that batch of frozen product into the mixing containers and set aside in the walk in cooler/freezer. You can do this several times before your meal period begins if you start early. The product will stay frozen in the walkin cooler long enough to replenish during the upcoming meal period. Right before lunch, begin serving drinks into the cups from the frozen product in the mixing containers. Once you have emptied the mixing containers, begin to serve from the machine like you are currently doing.
Machine setup is very simple, instructions are included with initial delivery and can also be downloaded here. The slushy machine only requires a standard electrical wall outlet/plug and does NOT require a water line.
Frosty Fruit is made from 100% fruit juice and has no added sugar.
The sugar is fructose, which is the sweetest tasting of all the natural sugars. Fructose is found in fruits and honey.
Frosty Fruit comes packaged in concentrate form in 1/2 gallon bottles. Fill the mixing container that we provide with two gallons of water and then add one bottle of your Frosty Fruit mix to that. Finally, pour the mix into the slushy machine, turn on the power and mixing auger and set the machine to freeze. It will be ready to enjoy in approximately 1-2 hours.
Most schools sell slushies either in their cafeteria, in the school store, in the concession stand, and during special events.
