I am a 38 year old female that has had diabetis now for 36 years! Yes, the diabetis has caused me to go blind and was on kidney dialysis from 2000-2005 when I recieved a kidney transplant! But unfortantly the transplanted kidney went into renal failure on Sep. 28th, 2008! I am now back on dialysis and since my body retains fluids, I can't drink a lot of fluids. So I went on Craigs List and typed in the search "Ice Crusher". And low and behold there was only one ad! I made contact with the owner and met them. Got a hand crank vintage ice crusher that has 3 diffrent sizes to choose from to crush ice! I of course, eat the smallest pieces that the crusher makes! I love my new ice crusher! The best thing is that its not electric and the blades will never get dull! Its made in the 50's and built to last! I've crushed 6 cubes and it over filled my 8oz coffe cup, so I went to crushing 5 cubes and found that number to be perfect! I don't have a frig with auto ice maker/crusher so this little crusher is perfect! Picked it up for $8!
