BEST VALUE:Pro Lighting Snow 400

Snow Machine with one gallon of Snow Fluid - High Output. Produces the illusion of real snow. Includes remote control. Let the snow fall all season round!

When you need absolute best value, the Professional Lighting Snow 400 could be the clear choice. It's one of few snow machines available for under $100. During December, this machine does sell out, so don't be surprised if it happens again. This unit is strictly designed for small scenarios, and may not be suitable for larger settings/stages.

BEST BET: ADJ Entour Snow

ADJ Products ENTOUR SNOW Special Effects

For the best in value and quality, we're going with ADJ. With up to 1250 watts of power, the Entour Snow is a newer, more reliable unit that offers shooting distance of up to 12 meters! The DMX control or built-in remote give you all of the control you need, while the oversized fluid tank is easily accessible. Best of all? This snow machine has almost no warm-up time.

ADJ VF Flurry

American DJ VF Flurry Snow Machine 600W High Output Area Effect w/ Wired Remote

ADJ has long been known for producing a value-based snow machine. With great output for small areas, this 600-watt unit is easily one of the most powerful in its price class. The one liter tank gives you enough fluid for several hours, while the wired control lets you mount the unit up high to "let it snow".

Chauvet DJ SM250

CHAUVET DJ SM250 Snow Effect Machine | Special Effects

Chauvet's SM250 has only been around a short while, but was quick to make our list of best snow machines on the market. Priced right at under $300, the Chauvet SM250 offers user friendly volume adjustment, as well as built-in DMX control for those creating an entire holiday light show.

Antari S-200X

Antari S-200X High Powered Snow Machine

Those looking to step up there snow show this year clearly need to take a look at the S-200X snow machine from Antari. Antari's wide range of atmospheric effects have made them a prime choice over the last decade, and the S-200X offers excellent output at the right price. The 5-Liter tank is bound to last you quite some time.

Antari S-500 Travel Snow Machine

Antari S-500 Professional Travel Snow Machine

If you've got a traveling holiday road show, having to mount a snow machine everywhere you go is no fun. The S-500 is truly a professional unit with travel case and tank. The output is a hose, designed for quick hanging and removal.


ADJ Products VF SNOW FLURRY HO high output snow machi

If the Entour snow is too much, feel free to step it down to the VF Snow Flurry HO. Rounding out our list of best snow machines, this unit offers a tank that's less than half the size and far less distance. But in the end, you'll still get some great output, and you still have the option to control it via DMX.

Just a friendly reminder that these units do not actually produce real snow. It's more of a soap-like foam that can, and usually will, get floors mildly wet. Always consider your environment before setting up a snow machine. So what do you think of our list of best snow machines? Got something better? Let's hear about it in the comments!

I love my CITC Quiet Cubes ( It runs super quiet and has a low amp draw which allows me to run multiple units on one circuit. It was perfect for a quiet first wedding dance where I didn't want the machine noise to distract from the special moment.
