It's a blast!

by

Took the Slicer out on wet grassy hill right after a rain. Talk about a blast! On wet grass, this thing really goes! Be careful, though, as you really don't have any steering control when riding on ice and it does tend to turn sideways and spin a bit like a snow saucer. Overall, though, it was a lot of fun. Just wish that the ice would have lasted a bit longer.More > < Less

Great fun! The Slicer actually really works!

by

We received two Slicer Sleds as Christmas presents, so our first experience with the Slicer was on snow, and it worked great -- one of the best sleds on the hill. But we didn't get around to trying the Slicer out on grass until earlier this this month (at a family reunion), so I'm just writing this review now -- as I assume most are interested in whether it really does work on grass.

I agree somewhat with the earlier customer review regarding filling the ice molds with water. The lids don't seal completely water tight (probably so the ice block can be easily removed from the mold once it's frozen), so it’s pretty easy to spill a little water getting the molds into the freezer. However, we had no problem getting the ice molds to fit in our freezer – and we have a somewhat smaller side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with less than a foot wide freezer opening. (The ice mold measures 11.5 inches wide in case you are wondering if it will fit in your freezer.)

The directions that come with the sled do say that you need the ice to be melting in order to create a slippery surface and that you need a relatively steep hill for the sled to work well on grass. That was definitely our experience, too, as our first try was on a part of the hill that wasn’t very steep (as we had younger kids that were using the sled). At first we couldn’t even get the sleds to go, but when we moved to a steeper part of the hill, the sleds went pretty well. And the more we sled the better it got, as the ice really started melting and the grass along our sled path became somewhat wet, making it quite slippery. In fact, I would have to say that by the end the Slicer was going as fast on grass as it did when we used it earlier this year on snow.

It was a pretty warm day, so we probably got less than 45 minutes of actual sledding time in before the ice melted or wore all the way down and we could no longer get the sleds to go, but we got quite a few runs in during that time and the younger kids were pretty tired out by then, anyway. Overall, it was a really fun thing to do, and even the adults enjoyed it!

Clever idea and lots of fun!

by

Clever idea: instead of putting your sled on snow/ice, you put ice on the bottom of your sled! I mostly agree with the other reviews. Youeviews. You do need a fairly steep hill for it to work well on grass-- but that's not too much different than for sledding on snow. And the lids on the ice mold containers aren't totally water tight, so you may spill a little water getting them into your freezer; and the door at the back of the sled where the ice molds are stored (when not in use) tended to flop open during sledding (which was no big deal), but other than those minor issues, there's not much to complain about -- except for perhaps the price. However, considering how solid the sled is and that you can use it year round, with or without snow, it's worth every penny in my opinion -- especially for those who rarely get snow and never get to go sledding. And for those who do regularly get snow, we've found it to be one of the better snow sleds out there.

Bottom line: our whole family has had lots of fun with this (on snow and on grass) and we would definitely purchase again.

GREAT IDEA THAT DIDN'T WORK

by

We could not fit the ice container into our side by side freezer because the containers are too wide. We then took the ice containers to our other home with a large freezer. It took 48 hours to freeze. The containers leak unless perfectly flat - not a Tupperware-type item that will seal in the water. After frozen, we tried it on regular grass, zoysia, short hill, steep hill....the longest trip was less than a foot. Very disappointing- especially after we promoted the item
to everyone as to what fun this would be in the summer when there was no snow.

Go sledding this winter. And spring. And summer.

About Slicer by Ice Meister

Ice Blocking

Ever wish you could go sledding in the middle of summer? Wish no more. The Slicer all-season sled lets you race down the slopes whether they’re covered in snow or not.

Years ago, snow-deprived kids started freezing large blocks of ice to use as sleds on grassy hills. When Scott Ireland’s kids tried “ice blocking,” he realized what a cool idea it was and wanted to make it better. He created the Slicer—a sled that could be fitted with blocks of ice.

Honeycomb-shaped Icer trays make lighter, stronger blocks of ice that last for up to two hours of “winter” fun. Freeze ‘em and snap ‘em to the bottom of your sled. After a few minutes they’ll be slippery, and you’ll be ready to roll.

Already have snow? The Slicer works great by itself in wintery conditions, with a double-walled design that keeps you a little warmer and further away from the ground.

When you’re not out racing, put the Icers inside Slicer for easy storage. Next time the urge to sled hits, no matter the season, you’ll be ready.
