Although the Victorio Kitchen VKP1126 remains somewhat popular, we decided to remove it due to ongoing concerns about rust. Even with careful cleaning and drying, it simply does not hold up. We added the Gourmia Shaver, instead, which is a similar portable model that offers incredibly easy operation. We also selected two additional non-electric models: the Arrow Home Products 60-Cube trays and the Viski Professional Lewis Ice Bag. They're both fine for casual entertaining, but if you have a large get-together on your hands or want crushed ice every day, a more robust, higher capacity model might be better. That's why we selected the Blendtec Designer Series WildSide+ and the Zeny Electric, although technically the former is a blender. This will be a positive for many users, however, as a multi-function device means fewer items to store and clean. Plus, Blendtec blenders are known for their durability and hassle-free operation.
