I still have not used this fog machine but I did try it to make sure it works. Yes, it does work. However, I was very surprised that there are no buttons on it. Not even an on/off switch. There is only a control remote cable that you can use to output the fog but that is it. I find this somewhat strange.
I bought this at half price and I am relieved that I did. A penny more and I would have taken it back to the store. It's a fog machine and at least it quietly makes fog. It needs to be manned at all times during use. Adding ice to the machine not only didn't create low lying fog, it didn't make for an easy clean up. The thing comes with a bag to relieve the ice box of melted ice but...I'll use this until it breaks and then I am going to go test some before I buy a new one.
