About this project

As featured in:-

 Let's face it... "Everybody loves a good slush" ! The Kids love it, Adults love it (especially mixed with alcohol), Family and Friends love it, it's the WOW factor at parties, and it's a Smash Hit during summer! 

  People all around the world drink slushy everyday, it's just a part of who   we are and what we love to do. 

Millions of people have wanted a professional slushy machine in their homes for years, BUT the problem is, until now, the crazy $2,000+ price-tags have made this luxury item impossible for the everyday person to afford. The other major problems with professional machines on the market is that they are big and bulky in size and simply don't fit on the kitchen bench. Traditional slushy machines weigh in at around 35 kilograms up to 75 kilograms, making it too heavy to move around or take away on holidays, and unfortunately, they don't match the kitchen decor requirements either! 

                So this got us thinking...

What if WE set a new industry standard? What if WE created the World's First, Custom Sized, Professional Slushy Machine for homes at the World's Most Affordable Price?  

      The result? The birth of the " iSlush "

                                             Here's the stats:- 

  •  The iSlush stands at only 40cm in height and 38cm wide "The perfect kitchen bench top size and the most compact machine ever created" 
  •  It's only around 15kgs in weight "The lightest professional slushy machine ever created" 
  •  It comes with 2 x 3 Litre tanks which creates up to a whopping 25 cups of perfect, consistent, mouthwatering slush before you even need to bother with top-ups! (Blenders/Ice-Crush-add-salt machines do around 3 cups only) 
  • Available in 7 High-Gloss finish colour choices "Created to suit the decor of almost any kitchen design" 

                         THE MASTERPIECE COLOUR RANGE

                        Which colour best suits Your home?

 The iSlush is super easy to operate- Simply add water, your favourite slushy flavours (alcohol if that's your liking), switch it on, and let the iSlush do all the hard work for you! 

Easy-Pour Taps - Pull down and enjoy the magic ! 

  iSlush is the "World's Lightest, World's Most Compact, and World's Most Affordable" HANDS DOWN! This product truly is in a league of it's own. For the first time in history, you can now own a product that brings genuine happiness, fun, smiles and value to your home at a price never before seen in the industry.  

We hope this products excites you as much as it has us and we invite you to back our campaign and help us bring the iSlush into reality.

Risks and challenges

We all know that poor preparation results in poor performance, so the team at T.S.G have made it our number one priority, to be focused solely on executing a well planned, and well prepared campaign.

We needed to invest a huge amount of time, trial and error and commitment along our journey to Kickstarter, and there's a lot of positives to report. On that note, here is a few Risks & Challenges we have addressed and continue to keep a rock solid eye on:-

MANUFACTURING: Tooling, iSlush mould creation, engineering and design are all very costly necessities in bringing our product to life. We have been working closely with our supplier to ensure all components, compliance and procedures are super tight, and as per our specification requirements. We will continue to monitor this daily whilst we move into our volume production stage.

AESTHETIC MODIFICATIONS: We are continuously working with our design partners to levitate their ideas into the iSlush. There may be some visual and internal operational adjustments to come which are in place to ensure our machine hits the market with the most simplistic, and visually appealing areas completely covered off.

FULFILLMENT: Nothing worse than ordering your very own iSlush, waiting teeth-grit to crack open the box and get slushing, but become disheartened when you find out its going to be delayed by 3 months!
That's why we have partnered with an internationally recognized powerhouse to take care of our end-to-end delivery requirements. Our fulfillment partner works within incredibly strict time frames, and have an impressive track record in sea and air freight transportation. Slight delays may be expected based on total volume of sales, so we do ask for some flexibility.

There is always, however, the unforeseeable, like natural disasters or machinery breakdowns which cause your iSlush to be delayed. If this does happen, you will be updated fast and efficiently to avoid concern, and with that comes a detailed understanding as to why your iSlush was delayed, accompanied by an honest, future date of expectation to reach your door-step. Transparency is key, and you can expect nothing less from us.

Any pledge amount means the world to us. When you press the "Back This Project" button, you are making an investment not just in a slushy machine for your home or business, but a commitment to bring millions of people around the world true happiness, and to us, that's what its all about.

  • Right now, the iSlush weighs around 15kgs, and stands at only 40cm in height and 38cm in width and depth. We are expecting our size not to change as it's built to the perfect kitchen bench-top size.

    Last updated:
  • The iSlush comes with a 12 month Warranty on Parts & Workmanship. Full details are available at theislush.com

  • We're working with a full-scale logistics & distribution team to make our international deliveries as effective as possible. But the iSlush has a bit of bulk to it, so it's naturally going to be more expensive to ship overseas. We're still determined though to get one to all our international backers! We took our original iSlush model at over 25kgs and reduced the weight without compromising integrity to reduce the shipping price down to almost half what it was before.

    Last updated:
  • It's actually pretty easy to adjust... Just go to the top right of the Kickstarter page and click 'manage my pledge'. You can adjust it there.
    You'll have to adjust your pledged total up to include the shipping. There is a shipping cost automatically populated in the Reward you purchased ie Regular Early Bird for Australia is $105aud to Australia, so please check there for your country.

  • We are so excited that so many people are as pumped about the iSlush as we are, but this level of interest is beyond our wildest hopes.

    We’re still aiming to begin shipping at the end of April 2016. At this scale it's possible they won't all ship at once, so we'll be ship out in the order they are received.
