👤The product felt like plastic and had a "look" of wood surround. The ice cream maker is not adequate. The cylinder is small enough to not allow ice to be made. You need to put the cylinder in the freezer for two hours before using it. You have to put the ice cream in the freezer for it to turn into ice cream. It is not the real thing where ice cream is made by making a product. It would be better to make the ice cream in the freezer and put it in a liquidiser with milk. There is a The original copy was a real ice cream maker. This is a game.
👤This stopped working around the 4th. I have waited patiently since I contacted the two companies more than once. Customer service just saw my questions because of a delay in notifications. I had a mistake with the machine and they worked to correct it. I ordered this for the kids to have fun. It was easy to make ice cream with strawberries and cream. This was easy to use, clean and assemble, and we will definitely be using it more.
👤This is a great ice cream maker. The ice cream was frozen in 15 minutes. It is very easy to clean.
👤I bought the ice cream maker to give my kids something to do. This worked well. The metal pot was placed in the freezer because it was better for ice cream. We made our first batches of homemade vanilla and it turned out great. 2.5 cups sugar, 2 half/half, 2 pints whipping cream, 4 eggs, and 1/2 pound of salt were included in the recipe. Add sugar and beat again. Add the rest of the ingredients. Place in maker at night. This makes a pot of 4 liters. It took about 30 minutes. I had a hand crank when I was a kid. The ice cream was good.
👤The machine makes over 40 gallons of ice cream.
👤The ice cream maker has been great. We like to make our own ice cream with no sugar. We've made about 7 batches and they are all delicious. It's a little loud but that's fine. We're happy we can have ice cream again.
👤Guess who made new friends because of her new ice cream? That would be me. I had enough ice cream to last two weeks and it was a great product. You should freeze it for a day longer than the instructions suggest.
👤Absolutely adore this! It is easy to use and clean. It was very quiet compared to my old one. I want to make my family Christmas this year because I am making ice cream constantly. My family loves it.

All parts of the ice cream making process are secured by notches. The bucket is made with real wood slats to recreate an old fashioned ice cream making experience.
👤We bought a new electric unit, 4 qt., because the dasher on the 6 qt was not fitting correctly and it wasn't working as well as the 4 qt. 1. We received it a day earlier than expected. Everything was in the box and in excellent condition. 3. I washed the unit. 4. The EasyVanilla Ice Cream recipe is in the manual. The instructions were easy to follow and it worked. We stopped the unit at 30 minutes. 5. Easy Chocolate Ice Cream was made an hour later. 30 min later... perfect. 6. Absolutely no mess. I used the unit on my kitchen table in case, but it never leaked. 7. It was very easy to clean up. There are no hassles, small parts, or hard to clean areas. There are 8. We didn't think of containers to store ice cream in the freezer. That's not their fault. I think that's correct. Both were delicious. I didn't have to wonder if it was safe to eat. The kids don't want store bought ice cream again. I would recommend this unit to everyone.
👤The electric ice cream maker works well. The ice cream is churned in about 20 minutes depending on the recipe. The results were perfect every time I used it. I enjoyed the one mistake that was made during assembly. I hope it wasn't one of my students who put the nametag on the front.
👤It looks great, like the nostalgia effect. Someone did something wrong when they put the motor works together. When you put the paddles in, connect the motor to the canister, and turn it on, the canister will not turn. I couldn't believe it! I allowed it to run until it stopped after 30 minutes, but there was no mixing of the ice cream mix and no aeration necessary to make ice cream. A group of people are having dinner and dessert. I'm getting a replacement and crossing my fingers that it will be okay, mostly because of the good reviews. I returned the item because I thought the first one was faulty and got a duplicate. I didn't see anything in the manual to tell me how they worked. I used to use ice cream makers that had the paddles rotating instead of the canister. I returned the ice cream because it didn't congeal as I said. I researched online and found that this was normal operation for this unit, as another arrived with the same canister motion. I had to stop the machine after 45 minutes because I was concerned about consistency after freezing. The ice cream tasted great. The result was great despite the learning curve. My review is being edited to reflect my new rating.
👤I have not had home made ice cream since I was 8 years old. My brother is 39. I picked the fruit. She made the mixture. My brother and I took turns. I made ice cream for the first time. My daughter helped with the stool. It came out frightening. The machine is worth something. My peaches are going to be ripe in a few weeks.
It's ideal for anyone looking for a soft serve ice cream maker. This unit makes four quarts of ice cream, frozen yogurt or gelato, which is enough to feed everyone. The Nostalgia ice cream kits include the Premium Ice Cream Starter Kit, the Chocolate or Strawberry Ice Cream mixes, and theVanilla crme. It is easy to clean up messes with a plastic bucket. A see-through lid is included that fits on top of the canister to keep ice cream in the freezer. The carrying handle attached to the bucket makes it easy to move ice cream around. No intensive stirring or manual effort is required because a powerful electric motor does all the work. The electric motor lock keeps all parts secure. Use your own recipes or follow the instructions in the manual to get started making ice cream.
👤I have made at least four batches of ice cream with this ice cream maker. There have been some problems with the construction, but so far nothing has gone terribly wrong. The motor does not stop working or burn out, which is a relief to me since I was worried about that when I first bought it. The cheap price makes it difficult to determine long term durability. The instructions for the maker are good. The plastic bucket has a metal handle attached to it and a plastic grip that helps with carrying. The inner bucket is made of aluminum and will easily be scratched by ice and salt as it is in use. The beater is made from plastic and has a plastic motor. Some of my worries are listed. The inner bowl is made of aluminum. If you drop it, the bowl will be damaged and the unit will be useless. The motor is still working on mine. The price tag is the reason for the doubt around the motor. The problem is now on the table. The plastic bucket has a metal handle attached to it, and the plastic bucket has a plastic grip. Salt creates salt water when it mixes with ice, so you need to add it to make ice cream. If the salt water is not cleaned off, it will rust the metal carrying handle, which will be hit by the saltwater when dumped from the bucket. The chrome under the plastic handle has been lost and the rust will spread to the rest of the handle. If you buy this, make sure you rinse the handle under water because it's unlikely that they'll fix the problem by making the handle STAINLESS STEEL. Take the plastic grip off if you want to make it easy. The ice cream maker's ability to make ice cream will not be affected by this problem, but you should make sure to clean it after each use. I will include pictures.
👤I bought an expensive ice cream maker and was disappointed. I knew that I didn't want an old style maker with a wooden tub because they come apart after a couple of tears. This is the ticket! I had to use it from the box. I put the top on and washed it, poured it in, and topped it with ice and salt. Viola! The motor was not bogged down. The machine stopped when the ice cream was done. Absolutely no issues. It goes together quickly and functions perfectly. I finally found a keeper.
👤I bought this for my sister. It was so good that we immediately made ice cream. We made ice and rock salt with regular size ice cubes. I used a no cook recipe with heavy cream and milk. I will be buying another for myself.
👤I decided to invest in an ice cream maker because I love ice cream so I might as well. It only took me 2 days to lose control of my life because of my Amazon Prime account. I opened my Nostalgia Electrics 4 quart ice cream maker at the house on Wednesday. I was going to make Death by Chocolate Ice Cream as my first experiment, I like chocolate, my housemates like chocolate, everyone loves chocolate. It was easy to put the machine together, you put the metal container in, fill it with rock salt and ice, then place the ingredients inside along with the mixer and the motor on top. You can hear it working, you can hear it doing all the work, and you can mix ice cream. I stopped the mixer and tasted the consistency of soft serve for the first time. Death by Chocolate Ice Cream was the most delicious ice cream I had ever had. I had to make more. I was looking at concoctions and flavors. No ice cream flavor will go untested. This machine has turned me into an ice cream fanatic. I have ice cream in my dreams and I can't put it down. I can't think of anything else than ice cream.
It's a super function. The commercial quality compressor-freezer means that the ice cream maker is always ready to go. 1.5 quarts of your favorite ice cream, frozen yogurt, gelato or sorbet can be made. The 60-minute timer has a blue screen for accuracy. The Keep Cool feature keeps your ice cream or gelato cool after the timer goes off. Refer to the user manual for questions surrounding warranty policies and the product is free.
👤The ice cream maker is for home use. I've only used the Ice Cream Maker to make ice cream. The amount of base you end up with is to much for 1 full batches of ice cream without it spilling out of the container, as many reviews point out. I saw the most complaints in the review section. All solutions are dependent on the machine working correctly. Ice Cream spills over at the end of the freezing process. There is a solution. There are a few things you can do. You can take 1/2 cup of the Ice cream Base, but not the rest. You could make a small batches with the remaining base, but it would be better to make the recipe 50% larger. You can make two smaller batches of ice cream without the liquid spilling over. You could make 3 different batches of ice cream. I have used the Gelato Paddle to reduce the amount of air in the product. Problem solved. 2- The container gets stuck in the machine when it's finished. Answer- It takes a small amount of water to freeze a container. The solution's. The gear at the bottom of the container holds a lot of water. After washing between batches or before every use, blow very hard for a few minutes into the gear at the bottom of the container. You'll be amazed at how much water comes out. If you do another batches immediately after the first, make sure the machine is free of ice and condensation. You can check by wiping with a paper towel. If there is ice on the wall of the container or towel, you can wipe it out with a warm wet towel and then use a paper towel. You can warm the sides of the machine by putting some hot water in the Ice Cream Makers container. The small amount of condensation and thin layers of ice can be removed with this. You can either blow the water from the bottom of the Ice Cream Base container before you use it, or just sit the machine for a few minutes to get it closer to room temp, and then let it dry. Ice cream does not freeze in the stated amount of time. If you want your ice cream to be frozen in under an hour, cool your base down to 55f. The cooler the Ice cream base is when you start, the quicker it will freeze. 40 min is needed to be ready at 55f. If the exhaust for the machine is blocked, it may cause your ice cream to take longer to freeze. The machine is blowing 105f of air. If you don't have enough clearance for the exhaust or around the machine, it will warm the whole machine and cause it to take longer to freeze. Did you prepare the recipe well? My solution is to make an ice cream base with half and half instead of milk. It's easier to get the right consistency, richer in flavor and easier to get to thick when frozen, because of this. It takes more time, but it is worth it. I think so. The calories/fat content is the only downside to the style. I made a single batches that was just over 130 calories per tea spoon. That's Richard. I'll update this once I start playing with the Sorbet and maybe I'll even share a recipe or two. I don't really want to make Sherbet so I don't have any tips for that. Hope this helps. It's a good thing.
Use your own recipes or follow the instructions in the manual to get started making ice cream without the use of unnecessary ingredients. The best ice cream maker is named after the author of Every day magazine and Yourbestdigs. Reliable built-in audible timer. The capacity is 2.1 quarts and the temperature is -31oF. The mixing bowl and blade are made of aluminum and are easy to clean. The Motor Protection Function shuts off if the mixture gets cold.
👤The Ariete - DeLongi and the Gourmia GSI400 are very similar to this Whynter ICM-200LS. I'll compare these units to the Breville BCI600XL at the end of the review. The Whynter ICM-15LS and the Knox 1.5 are the same size as the advertised 1.5 Quarts and have the same company bringing the UL listing. The mechanisms that attach to the bottom of the bowls are the same as the plastic paddles. I had access to a few of these machines and they all weighed in at around 26 pounds according to my shipping scale. The dimensions are about 16 1/2 inches long x 11 1/2 inches wide. Since they seem to have the same motor that spins around 25 revolutions per minute, the same refrigerant for cooling, and the same container that holds the mixture, what are the differences? The makers have a power button, a start/pause button, and a menu button. There are two additional buttons on the Whynter ICM-200LS. Ariete-Delonghi and Gourmia GSI400 have a round knob that you can use to increase or decrease time. The software and the displays are the same. You can choose between "cooling only" or "mixing only." If you prefer less time, you can either turn the knob on some models or press the buttons on the Whynter, which will give you 60:00 minutes. After the ice cream has been churned for a certain amount of time, they all go to automatic cooling mode. The safety function shuts off the motor if the machine is too hard to handle and the mixture gets too heavy. The "cooling only" mode is good if you want to chill the bowl before pouring in your mix, which will make it easier to contact and make for a creamy end result. There is a word about the warranties. The only one that seems to have a limited warranty is the company itself. The warranty does not cover manufacturers' defects. The mini freezers have a compressor with sealed oil, which is important. If the units travel upside down, they need to be placed right side up for at least 4 hours and 24 hours to make sure the oil doesn't leak from the sealed housing. If it is run with oil, it will break and make noise, but it won't cool a thing. If you store the unit on the side or back, you have to wait a long time to turn it on. If there was oil in the compressor, it wouldn't be covered as a manufacturer defect. These units make great ice cream and gelatos. Since they spin at 25rpm, you will never be able to make ice cream with air in it. Premium ice cream and gelato is what we want at home. Some user manuals are marginally better than others. Some give you more recipes than others. Some give you silly extras like a cheap plastic scoop, a cheap plastic measuring cup, or a cheap plastic spatula. What about the Breville and Lello? The Cuisinart is similar to the ones mentioned above but has a slightly different motor as it spins at 26rpm. The certification and design process that Cuisinart went through seems to have been their own. If you turn the unit upside down, it is the same design as the rest, with the same access points to get to the internals. The interface of the Cuisinart is less robust and only has 3 buttons. After mixing, it will default to a 10 minute "Keep Cool" cycle. It is a 1.5 quart machine and it does not have the cooling or mixing functions that other machines do. It has a different paddle design, one for ice cream and one for gelato. It's a little gimmicky, as at 26 RPM's you'd be hard pressed to get any better whipping action from the cream in the ice cream, with the understanding that commercial units like Emery Thompson units generate RPMS closer to 200. All of these home units are excellent for gelato because they are low in RPMs. I have never dealt with a warranty claim for Cuisinart. How about the Breville? It is proprietary and has its own unique interface and software. The aluminum mixing tub is tall and narrow. It is 1.5 quarts. The warranty lasts for one year. The design premise is the same as the others. The motor is spinning at 50 revolutions per minute, so it should be able to aerate ice cream more if you want. There is no way to play with the temperature or change the speed. The auto interface on the Breville is able to reduce the time and slap a name on it. Ice cream is more time consuming than gelato. This unit is worth the extra money if you can adjust the cooling temp and the RPMs, but none of the other models can do that. The Lello has a design that is based on a setup where there is no bowl. This setup is similar to a sealed commercial setup that should allow the compressor to work more efficiently. If you can freeze your mix more quickly, you should have less ice cream. Front load commercial washing machines use the efficiency of gravity. The Lello is small and difficult to clean, and it does have an issue where the spinning pin can get stuck if not cleaned well. It is made in Italy and has a one year warranty. The Ariete - Delonghi or Gourmia can be had for $199.99 at the time of this review. I think it would be a toss up if the Whynter was the same price. Over the past year, the price of the Whynter has fluctuated between $260 and $350, while the Cuisinart is a little more expensive with less features and smaller capacity. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the machines listed above, except for the mystery brand and unavailable warranty information. The machines are the same, so you may be better served by being price conscious. I don't care for the design of the Lello because it's too expensive and the efficiency doesn't do much to the end result. The Breville is $380 and I don't think it has any advantages that justify the price. All of the machines will make great tasting ice cream or gelato. You'd be hard pressed to tell a difference using the same recipe on any of the machines except in a side by side taste test where you're really trying to be picky about the perfect creamy, aeration, lack of ice crystals, etc. Good luck with your purchase.
It's a super function. The mixing paddle makes frozen treats in 20 minutes or less. It is a cool feature. The double-insulated freezer bowl does not need ice. It can be up to 2 quarts of your favorite frozen yogurt or ice cream. Adding ingredients is easy with the transparent lid and large spout. Refer to the user manual for questions surrounding warranty policies and the product is free.
👤I bought this one after reading reviews. The bowl stays in the freezer. We make our mix on Thursday, so far from The Best Ice Cream Maker Cookbook Ever. It is stashed in the fridge. The bowl comes out of the deep freeze on Friday. It goes into the freezer when it's done in the ice cream maker. Friday night dessert? Home made ice cream. The machine is great. The size works well for us and does the job. There was no messing with ice and salt. It makes the same amount of ice cream as a regular box from the store. I got the warranty for 2 years. I have learned a lot about ice cream. If you've been looking for an ice cream maker, you should look for fresh ingredients. We could tell from the back of the cupboard that it was a rocky road with walnuts. Be patient. Go buy some ice cream. The machine is about enjoying the creation. Does the store have ice cream? No question. The machine has been advertised. Yes, has. It has been a pleasure.
👤I read the reviews before selecting a machine. The machine arrived in perfect condition. I put the drum in the freezer after cleaning it. I used it to make ice cream and it came out perfect. My husband loved it so much that he couldn't stop talking about it. It was rated highly but there were some one star ratings that said it wasn't powerful enough to make ice cream and that the drum wasn't cold enough to freeze ice cream. Churning issues should be reconsidered by people who are complaining that it is not powerful enough to make ice cream. When I put too much whipping cream into the mix, it takes too long and the machine seems to be straining. I didn't have a problem with the ice cream coming out smooth when I used the proper mix of heavy whipping cream and milk. Every ice cream maker makes ice cream that is soft serve. If you want it to firm up, you need to put it in the freezer for an hour or so. Don't put fruit or nuts in the mixture. After you empty the bowl of ice cream, fold it in my hand. The chunks will get caught between the paddle and drum and cause problems if you add them. Chunks are supposed to be added later. You can't submerge the drum in water. The manual clearly shows that I say so. If you can't read the small print, you can download the PDF for the unit. I did that and it was much easier to read. I put my freezer in the upright position for 24 hours before using it. A layer of ice cream welded to the interior of the drum is what happens after you make ice cream. Don't use metal utensils to remove it. After about 15-20 minutes, I use a soft spatula to remove the paper towel from the sides. Don't scratch the interior, it will cause problems later. Do not put the drum in the freezer until it thaws completely. After waiting 15-20 minutes and scrapping the inside, I take my drum to the sink and spray it out with warm water, being careful not to submerge it or scratch it. I put it on my counter in the upright position and dry it out with a paper towel. I put the excess condensation back in the freezer in the upright position after wiping it off.
The vegetables are included. You can follow the recipes in the manual or make your own. A simple bowl for freezing. The Mr. Freeze ice cream maker has a bowl that you can use to make ice cream directly in the unit. The unit can be turned on easily with a simple control panel. There were no chemicals, alcohol or salt needed. The 1.5 quart capacity provides the perfect amount of serving for family and friends. The ice cream and dessert maker is easy to use. Simply freeze the bowl overnight, then add the ingredient mixture into the machine, push a button and you'll have a delicious dessert in a short time. You will receive a variety of recipes for frozen yogurt, ice cream, and sorbet.
👤At last! I can finally get ice cream that is allergy friendly and won't cause blood sugar spikes or inflammation. For Father's Day, I made a coconut milk ice cream that tasted amazing and we had a root beer float. My parents couldn't believe how good they tasted and that they weren't harmful to their blood sugar or health. The machine was easy to use. You just need to put the bowl in the freezer the night before and then load your ingredients the next day and put it in the machine to stir. You can either add vegetable glycerine to make it softer or take it out and thaw it in 20 minutes. You can make a couple different flavors at a time with the skinny 1 or 2 quart containers. My husband loves chocolate mint. It's nice to not have to pay a lot of money for a machine. It worked.
👤I used it for the first time yesterday and it worked out perfectly. The instructions said to freeze the bowl for 24 hours. It could not have been any harder. I was very pleased with my purchase. It looks good. It's easy to store and it's red.
👤It is an ok machine. I didn't have high hopes based on the price. I was bothered that I had to sit and hold the cover for the entire process. It won't be safe. I have to stir on the mix-ins when I transfer it to a loaf pan. The taste will be determined by the recipe used. You can leave it and come back in 25 minutes.
👤The recipes are for 2 cups of ice cream, not the advertised 6 cups. The ice cream maker works if you make less than 2 cups. You get watered down shake consistency when you attempt to make 1.5 quarts of ice cream. I would not have purchased the unit if I had known that the bowl could not be put in the freezer for more than 48 hours. If left in the freezer for more than 48 hours, the instructions warn that the bowl may crack.
👤The ice cream maker is great, but you have to freeze the pot for 24 hours, 12 hours will not work.
👤It is easy to clean and a priority appliance. Having the option to make ice cream at home with more or less healthy options is perfect for me. I would say that this appliance is fairly priced and looks pretty good.
👤The ice cream was perfect, it was a really good mouth feel, and it was just flipping amazing. I recommend freezing the bucket for 36 hours before pouring your ice cream base, you can chill it up to 14-16 hours. This machine is amazing. If you're new to making ice cream, it comes with a book that has recipes.
👤I like this machine. I did not buy a bigger one. I might just order another bowl to go with it. I ordered this gem when it was on a great sale at $24.99.
It is specially designed for quick and simple setup. There is a 6-quare catastrophe. Ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt and sorbet can be frozen. It's perfect for party time, snack time, barbeques, picnics and big events. The easy process is to mix your favorite ingredients, place in canister, assemble the unit and plug in. The ice cream and dessert maker is easy to use. Simply add the ingredient mixture into the machine, use the automatic motor or manual hand-crank and you'll have a delicious dessert in a short time. Quiet operation. The electric motor locks onto the bucket, making sure all parts are interlocked for safe and quiet operation. It is easy to clean. The aluminum canister makes it easy to clean up messes. You can easily store leftover ice cream in the freezer, and the see-thru lid fits on top of the ice cream canister. The canister and lid are dishwasher safe. Use your own recipes or follow the instructions in the manual to get started making ice cream without the use of unnecessary ingredients. The ETL approved a 50 watt/ 120V for home kitchen use. Includes electric motor, wooden bucket with handle, Stabilizing Ring, freezing canister with indent, canister lid and cap, dasher paddle and bonus die-cast hand crank. You can buy with confidence because of the 1-year limited warranty and customer support team.
👤We had a White mountain that died before this was bought. The container's lid is made of plastic that hangs down to catch the lip on the container and spin it as the motor turns. The motor is pushed off the lip by the ice against the bucket, meaning it is turning nothing but the lid and not the container. The baby is sitting the lid so it turns the canister. I'll probably modify the lid to work better myself, by the time the cream had any sort of thickness, the lid had no chance of catching the lip on the canister, so I just did it by hand. I would try to find a better ice cream maker for you.
👤I wanted to use this ice cream maker. The water kept leaking out of the bottom of the wooden bucket when I put it in. There was a small crack on one board. I glue that crack. It was leaking around the bottom rim. The ice cream doesn't harden when you can't hold the ice water. There was no water in the bucket when I dumped out the ice. That was after 45 minutes. For the price, I shouldn't have to glue around the rim. My can had a small scratch in it. I would have ignored that because it didn't affect how it worked. I made the batches before I needed them so they could be put in the freezer.
👤It was bought for the wife's birthday. She filled the water to expand the wood. It was leaking after five hours of soaking. The glue looked like it had been smeared on the floor. The Amazon Customer Service was past the 30 day return period and was able to send it back. I bought one that was twice as much.
👤It came apart after being ordered. The motor housing was cracked. The second one cracked after they replaced it. I still used it because it didn't interfere with the motor running. It's not powerful enough to keep the cream mixing. I was wondering why they included a hand crank. I know now.
👤The old machine stopped working and we purchased this item to replace it. It was easy to clean before the ice cream started. I understand that the metal that houses the ingredients needs to be cold quickly in order to make ice cream. We will be camping all summer and were surprised to see that the machine had a hand crank option.
👤This was the worst thing we have ever purchased. The customer service rep apologized. The ice cream was very soft. If you want to go to heaven, then spend the money. If we wanted a crank instead of an electric, we would buy it. We will not buy from this company again. No one was going to support this product. Never so angry.
👤After the electric motor stops, I always hand crank. I tried to hand crank the ice cream after installing the manual hand crank. The center of the tub was not solid after the handle turned a half turn. I used it for the first time. I am on a 31 day RV trip and purchased it for use. I will try to use it again on August 14th. If I have the same problem, you should replace it even if it's been 35 days. There is a bucket with ice leaks. The hand crank was tried again on August 15th. It didn't work again. The previous ice cream maker's hand crank did not work for me. I will return the maker to the store for a full refund.
Refer to the user manual for questions surrounding warranty policies and the product is free. It's possible to make ice cream, frozen yogurt, custard, sorbet, gelato and sherbet with one ice cream machine. No stirring needed. It does all the work, then stops when ready. Try the recipes inside or create your own unique taste by mixing in candy, cookies, or fresh fruit. The easy-lock lid is easy to fit on top. The perfect size for families and special occasions. It's ideal for anyone looking for a soft serve ice cream maker.
👤Don't buy. Amazon needs to be able to rate something. This is one of the worst designed and engineered products I have ever seen, and I am more critical of bad design than I am of engineered products. The dasher's stem is aluminum and too short, which makes it difficult to use. If it was longer, there would be more engagement so it wouldn't destroy the receiver cup so quickly. The small cup in the picture is aluminum and stamped square receiver. The end of the stem is rounded off and the aluminum cup is rounded out. One use. The ice cream wasn't churned properly and it didn't work. Proper ice cream texture is dependent on little to no air getting blended in. The housing is durable, but for another dollar in manufacturing costs, this could be a good product. If the dasher stem and cup were made of steel, it would work out well. The cup would have to be made from metal, not stamped, and that would cost pennies. If you throw away your money and don't get ice cream, this is a piece of junk and needs to be avoided. I have a dasher from a previous ice cream maker that fits perfectly, so beware of that one as well. Unless you have a lathe and milling machine and a spare dasher with a steel shaft, stay away.
👤I had been looking for $300 ice cream machines. Most of them made one quart at a time. I didn't want to be divorced for buying a more expensive kitchen appliance after buying a very expensive mixer and food processor. This one says it makes a gallon and will save me $270. We made our first gallon of ice cream after two days. It took about 40 minutes to cook it. The family was given some extra for the freezer. The first week we made four gallons. We eat a diet of no sugar or grains and make ice cream that tastes better than the store's junk food. Our guests had no idea that they were eating ice cream. This machine is a win. I never thought it would be so good for the low cost.
👤It died within a month after being bought. It died in 8 months after getting a free warranty replacement. It was done once or twice a month. Both failed the same way. The motor continues to run after the noise stops. hoping for an easy fix. The gears were stripped. The teeth break under the load. The gears look large, so I suspect cheap manufacturing methods. Cheap steel does not last and they are using a poor quality steel. It worked well while it lasted.
👤A lot of people claimed their canister had a small scratch, but I think that's just the design. It looks like it was made in a factory. I made ice cream. It was perfect. I didn't have to freeze it because it was already formed in the maker. I put my ice cream in the ice cream maker after making my batches in the fridge for 2 hours. The bucket was filled with ice and rock salt. 2 quarts of icecream were made with 8 pounds of ice and 3 pounds of rock salt. It was perfect. It took 40 minutes to get from a liquid to ice cream. The entire process was easy. We put it in the kitchen sink. You need to hear it so you know when it stops. It was worth it.

👤I used the ICE 30 at my parents' home. After making about 7 batches of ice cream, I knew I wanted a maker at my home. I had a better idea of what features I was looking for after using the ICE-30, so I decided to use the ICE-70. The ICE 30 and ICE 70 are both loud, but the ICE 70 is quieter. It is noticeable, but not substantial. I don't want to be in the same room while I'm in the other room, but the ICE-30 was loud enough that I didn't want to be in an adjacent room. The ICE-70 is noticeably faster. I've read that the ICE-70 turns at 45 or 55rpm, while the ICE-30 turns at 22rpm. The faster the speed, the better the ice cream. I think the ice cream I get from my ICE-70 is slightly airier, and from the ICE-30 slightly more dense, but not a difference worth discounting. The ice cream is set up quicker when the speed is faster. It will take a few batches to get familiar with what is right, but once you see it, it's clear. I had more "soft" batches from the ICE-30, but I don't know if that's because it turns slower, or just because we weren't familiar with when the batches were ready yet. The mixing paddle for the ICE-60 and ICE-70 was updated by Cuisinart. It is easier to get the ice cream out of the container and to clean it. Not a big difference. I believe the ICE-70 paddle is available for $10, and it looks like it would fit the ICE-30 mixer, but don't quote me on that. At some point, I hope to test this. The cover is a lid. The ICE-30 has a larger fill spout for pouring in your cream and ingredients, but it is also open. The ICE-70 has a smaller fill spout and a cover. We used a plate to cover the spout to keep it out of the basement because of the noise. I like the built in spout cover in the ICE-70. Some users have complained that the lid doesn't stay on the ICE-70. The design on the ICE-30 is more secure. It's tempting to put the smaller ingredients in the freezer bowl before starting the mixer. This doesn't work well because the cream is frozen to the bottom of the bowl, the mixing paddle is not seated in the bottom, and the lid is not locked in. If I start the mixer with an empty bowl and pour the ingredients through the spout on the ICE-70, the lid stays locked firmly in place. I chose the ICE-70 over the ICE-60 because it was the only appliance in my house that was colored in the same color as my other small appliances. The ICE-70 has an automatic timer, but it's not necessary as you need to check on it every few minutes. You don't want to forget about it and come back to ice cream. There is a simple on/off switch. The ICE-60 has the same speed settings as the ICE-70, but there is no automatic timer. The one for the ICE-70 costs twice as much as the one for the ICE-30, and all three use the same freezer bowl. The color of the exterior might be different. The differences between the ICE-30, ICE-60, and ICE 70 are small, but they are significant enough to distinguish them. If the cost is a factor that would discourage you from buying the ICE-70, then I wouldn't discourage you from buying the ICE-30, but I think the ICE-70 is worth the price difference.

👤This is a great ice cream freezer. Solid construction. The option of electric motor and hand crank makes sure you always have ice cream. See-thru lid helps to know when you mix is done. The price is great for a quality item. It would be great if a US manufacturer could make the same.
👤The ice cream maker is easy to use. The kids love being able to make their own ice cream and we love making it at home. We bought a second one so we could make multiple flavors at the same time. It's nice to have the hand crank and eclectic option. You don't need to have an outlet close by. We are moving off the grid in a few months and it's a must. I would recommend this ice cream maker to anyone.
👤I wanted to give my grandsons the experience of making their own ice cream. The electric crank works well. I had to find better screws for the hand crank handle because it kept slipping. The ice cream canister has a brace that doesn't fit. It doesn't seem to stop either method from working. If it cost less, this would be a great product.
👤I was looking for an old fashioned ice cream maker. It's like finding a needle in a haystack. They were not cheap. I was not sure if I could believe what I saw. It comes with both. I wanted the kids to crank the bucket like we did when we were young. The recipe for the custard was in the instruction book. It was great! I had the kids make ice with salt in the bucket. It was done in a split second. It took us a long time in our day. With your turn, you'd have to have a Popeye arm. Anyhow... The ice cream was good. I made some for my co-workers. I used the electric motor to make the rich recipe. I was surprised at how quiet it was. It took about 40 minutes and once again it was great. Keep your liquid cool. You can put the canister in the freezer or fridge to make sure it's cold when you start. I put ice and salt on top of each other. I think it helped it to freeze quicker. Do I think it was worth it? Yes! Buy two!
👤Some of the apparatus is cheap, which turned out to be a disappointment to me. The hand mixer is made of cheap diecast metal. It won't tolerate a lot of ice cream Churning as the electric motor is not strong enough to turn the ice cream mixture to completion. It makes 6 US quarts of ice cream which is nice. I have used my own recipe and not any recipes that come with this product. A little more effort and a little more money would have made this a really nice ice cream maker.
👤To get it lined up inside the bucket, it's a bi*tch. The ice cream motor mounts on top of the can to hold the cream. You have to side with the person. You have to put side B in the other side of the motor before you can lock it down. It took approximately 5 minutes to get it to line up before the motor could start. It will eventually break something if you squeeze it in. The motor is made of plastic. The metal is on the bucket. Had to return it. Not worth 100 bucks.
