Not super great, but it doesn't suck either.Nov 11, 2009
By L. Blanco
Just wanted to chime in here because I purchased one of these recently for Halloween. I read a lot of negative reviews, but I went with my gut and bought one anyway. Quite frankly, I was pleasantly surprised. The unit itself is pretty sturdy and appears to be well-built. Most of the complaints about the unit appear to center around the fog not staying low to the ground. Well, depending upon the room temperature it is in, the fog will either rise or stay low to the ground. In a warm room it won't take long for it to rise. Well duh, is this really a surprise to anyone? In cooler rooms it will stay down longer, but eventually the fog will warm up and rise. ALL FOG WILL. Also, it isn't for outside use and it even says so in the instructions. I suspect complaints of the unit burning out and not working were the result of the operator letting the the fog juice run out resulting in the failure. The instructions warn against this as well.
I do have a legitimate complaint, and that is with the water drainage lever on the back of the unit. It doesn't indicate which is the "open" or "closed" position. I got a little concerned because the melting ice was not collecting in the drainage bag. I tried both left and right sides and even called the company and they said "right." Well, they were wrong. The lever, at least on my unit, has to be straight out in the middle. With the unit slightly raised and slightly tilted back, the melting water run right out and into the collection bag.
I would give the unit a higher rating if it were slightly cheaper. For a 400 watt foger, it looks like you're paying at least $75-$100 for a built in chiller. You can make a chiller to attach to your fogger yourself for about $20. I don't think I would recommend the unit for DJs on the go. They have enough heavy equipment to haul around, and other fog units may be better suited for their needs. But for use at small parties, home use, haunted houses, etc. the unit should perform well. I actually used mine outside on Halloween, and if not for the wind blowing so hard that night, it would have been perfect. However, for outdoor haunting displays, for next year I may pick up a pair of 1000 watt units. They cost less and should produce even more fog.

Fog Chiller that worksNov 20, 2009
By William S. Maley
This is a nice compact all in one unit. This is a multi-day multi-season machinge. It has the largest reservior for ice I have seen yet. When compared with standard for machines the fog it puts out stays much lower to the ground. However the 400 watt is a bit on the low side so the volume of it's output is medium to low. The picture of the fog comming out of the machine is greatly exagerated. The amount of fog juice it can hold is small, so be careful. When it runs out of juice you can easily burn up ANY fog machine. When done and it is time to store clean it with fog machine cleaner.

Works great!Mar 23, 2012
By Nick McCraw
I purchased two Mister Freezes. Good choice. These fog machines provide thick, opaque fog. This is exactly what I wanted. I spent $300 on two fog machines and it was a good buy. Ya, one leaks a little water when the ice melts but no bid deal. Want thick fog and a low price tag? Get this machine!
Awesom machine!Feb 01, 2014
By Jeff Lowe
Used it for Scrooge the Musical in a medium sized venue and it absolutely provided the ground fog we needed!

Here is a video i make a review of this product, it's cool, but do not make a real effect completely of low lying fog.
