Pros:easy recipes, simple to use, works quickly

Cons:small batches, can't add large chunks, hand wash

The Bottom Line: Making ice cream with this little machine is a breeze, and so much cheaper than premium ice cream from the store.  Well worth the money.


This is a fabulous little machine!  We store the bowl in the freezer so we can make ice cream any time the mood strikes.  For those not familiar with the process, you combine your ingredients to make a base, which needs to be well-chilled before using.  The recipes in the book suggest from 1-2 hours to overnight.  After the base is chilled, you take your bowl from the freezer and put it on the machine with the paddle and lid.  You turn it on, pour in the base, and watch it turn into ice cream before your very eyes.  In about 15 minutes scoop out delicious, softserve ice cream.  If you want hard pack ice cream you scoop your finished ice cream into an airtight container and harden in the freezer. 

We've made and altered various recipes in the book.  Be aware that any fruit or additions need to be smaller than a chocolate chip or they will clog the blades, I just run any fruit thorugh a food processor first and it works great.  The strawberry recipe works fabulous with other fruits--we've made blackberry and look forward to trying peach.  You are not limited to high fat, high calorie desserts.  There are also recipes for sorbets and frozen yogurt (though we haven't tried those--we prefer the full fat version). 

We've started this machine before dinner and had homemade ice cream ready to serve with dessert.  This doesn't make a large amount of ice cream.  If you are serving ice cream on the side of dessert like cobbler or cake, you can probably serve about 8-10, if you are serving ice cream as the dessert, you will get about 5 or 6 servings.  It is easy to wash up by hand, though if you wash soon after making the ice cream, the bowl will still be frozen.  We just wash and dry and put directly back to the freezer again.
