As I mention in the video, this unit is labeled "Chris Freytag", but the graphics and lettering on both units are the same-especially on the Basics manual ice shaver, you'll see the exact same blue lettering on both. Apparently, Chris Freytag is in the health/wellness field, and perhaps they have a deal to use the Basics machine and add the Freytag name to it. (?) That's an assumption on my part, but either way, the units seem identical.***
Fun to use, definitely faster than a manual machine, although louder too
Just be careful with handling the ice molds. I broke one, and so I bought a manual ice shaver just to get the 3 ice molds with lids that came with that unit. It seems that many of these machines use roughly the same size molds, however finding ice molds to purchase separately can be quite a task.
Bottom line- happy with this item, seems a good purchase for the price and kids as well as adults enjoy the snow cones.
