Reviews around taste (4.67 of 5)

  • My family and I really love the fresh tasting ice cream we are now making.
  • Too little tastes icy and awful
  • In less than a half hour you will make the best tasting ice cream you can imagine
  • The next day it was wonderfully firm like store bought ice cream, but so much better tasting than anything I'd ever purchased at the store.
  • I believe that the icecream we made in this machine was the only icecream EVER that actually languished in our fridge (this is saying a lot for a family of icecream fiends).As far as taste is concerned, well that is really not a problem.

Reviews around serve (4.65 of 5)

  • In 20 minutes you have creamy soft serve in the flavor du jour; freeze it to your liking.
  • If you use the ice cream as soon as it is finished it is like a soft serve.
  • This does make soft serve, like you would get at dairy queen, so if you want harder ice cream, just freeze in it a sealable feezer safe container for a hour or 2.
  • I usually run the ice cream maker until the ice cream is too hard for it to easily stir, and then take the freezer bowl out, cover it with foil and put it back in the freezer to get extra hard before serving
  • The ice cream comes out soft serve, but if you will freeze for a few hours it comes out hard just like store bought

Reviews around result (4.63 of 5)

  • Mediocre results until hitting upon a great cookbook.
  • Pouring the result into a freezer-proof container and freezing for a few hours to one day works very well
  • Each time we have used this ice cream maker we have thoroughly enjoyed the results.
  • I've had it a few weeks and have made several different recipes for frozen yogurt and ice cream with excellent results
  • If you're an extreme ice cream connoisseur and real picky about ice cream, you might not like the results, but if you're willing to bend a little for the sake of eating a healthier product you should be able to find recipes you like.

Reviews around product (4.33 of 5)

  • The only downside was that the product was a bit dirty upon receiving, but a quick clean and it was ready to run.
  • Wonderful product - but the key to great ice cream is to get the mixing bowl frozen solid
  • For people who are or live with homemade ice cream lovers, this is a great product.
  • But overall it's a great product that makes great ice cream.
  • The box was in such bad shape, I was certian the product was damaged.

Reviews around maker (4.30 of 5)

  • If you love Ice Cream, you will love this ice cream maker.
  • I'm going back to find a Rival ice cream maker, or maybe a Krups.
  • But even with those things, we love this ice cream maker.
  • This little maker doesn't make so much noise, no mess, and it only takes 20 to 25 minutes to have firm ice cream
  • My family and I wanted ice cream the other day, so we decided to break out the ice cream maker.

Reviews around consistency (4.29 of 5)

  • After 25-30 minutes in the machine, the consistency and texture are quite good...definitely hard enough to eat immediately.
  • After all you can add anything you like to the recipe to make its flavor appeal to your particular taste, but as far as the consistency is concerned, it really was a disaster.
  • Don't keep the ice cream in the freezer too long or after it's made or it will lose that fresh homemade consistency and taste (under a week is best).
  • Dosen't freeze ice cream as firm as i like, but that is fixed by removing from canister and placing in freezer for an hour or so befor serving.
  • It's true that the ice cream comes out with a very soft consistency, like a thick milkshake, but after a couple of hours in the freezer it's fine

Reviews around recipe (4.09 of 5)

  • The owner's manual comes with some great basic ice cream recipes, too!
  • The recipe we tried that we got online was most like regular ice cream, but I didn't like that it had uncooked eggs in it.
  • Lots of great recipes and the ice cream and sorbet are yummy!
  • A recipe book is included and the recipes are very good
  • Dosen't freeze ice cream as firm as i like, but that is fixed by removing from canister and placing in freezer for an hour or so befor serving.

Reviews around way (3.81 of 5)

  • After letting it freeze all the way, I tried the recipie for the Vanilla Ice Cream that is in the manual.
  • The best and fastest way to make excellent ice cream and sorbet
  • The way it works is you freeze the bowl before making the ice cream, sorbet, etc.
  • If you have room in your freezer, it's a fun way to enjoy your own ice cream flavors
  • There seems to be no real easy way to make home made ice cream.

Reviews around machine (3.65 of 5)

  • This machine is not loud, and is easy to use and makes delicious ice cream.
  • The only negative is that the machine is very loud when it's working.
  • And the machine is not too loud and is always done in about 25 minutes.
  • Other than that, its an awesome machine that is easy to clean and makes wonderful ice cream.
  • All done in this little (although slightly loud) machine.

Reviews around container (2.59 of 5)

  • A couple of hints; I froze the container well in advance, and after making the ice cream, I washed, dried and froze it again for its next use
  • You have to freeze the container for a day, but it is an unexpensive machine compare to those freezer units which cost a lot more.
  • It would be nice if they told you that you have to freeze some big metal container to make ice cream
  • I do recommend removing the ice cream immediately to a freezer useable container in order to keep from scratching the inside of the insert as you serve the ice cream...
  • to then have to clean and freeze the container for 24 hours before making more.

Reviews around reviewer (2.22 of 5)

  • Some reviewers complained that their ice cream never froze.
  • I have never needed to freeze the serving bowls like one reviewer mentioned, probably because I let it ripen in the freezer all day
  • Some other reviewers have complained of freezing time for the cylinder
  • Some reviewers complained the machine is really loud, but I don't find it bothersome
  • I've read some earlier reviews where the reviewer had a problem with the ice cream being too soft.

Reviews around freezer (2.21 of 5)

  • There are 2 main reasons for failure to get the ice cream to freeze - first is your freezer is not cold enough to freeze the bowl through and through.
  • (I have a modern and very cold freezer, and keep the bowl right in the back, too).
  • The only downside is the freezer bowl takes up valuable freezer space
  • When I saw the free extra freezer bowl - I ordered it here.
  • The only little problem I ran into was cleaning the freezer bowl.

Reviews around mix (1.98 of 5)

  • One little trick I use is I make the mix and freeze it a few
  • Dice any ingredients that you may add at the last minute or they don't get mixed in really well
  • Cold mixing turned out as good a product as heating then cooling
  • I ended up experimenting on my own, and deviated slightly from the recipes in the book, and so far, so good!Lastly, I found that after the recommended mixing time of 20-25 minutes, ice cream had a tendency to be a little soft.
  • Keys to get the correct consistency include turning the temperature of your freezer down to the coldest setting so that the bowl is fully frozen, chilling the mix you are going to put into it ahead of time so that it is cold, and then transferring the soft product you will have at the end of 20 - 25 minutes of churning into another container to freeze a bit longer

Reviews around ingredient (1.95 of 5)

  • Unless I do something wrong (like put hot ingredients in the first time) then it produces great tasting, well made, proper consistency ice cream every time
  • Love this product, I can control the ingredients and use Stevia instead of sugar to make healthier ice cream and it all tastes so very much better than store bought
  • I chilled the ingredients and the bowl prior to use, and only had to leave the ice cream maker on 15 minutes
  • This ice cream maker is easy to use, but you do have to be sure the bowl is really frozen and the ingredients are very cold
  • You also don't have to make the desserts as unhealthy as the recipes call for: we use half and half instead of heavy cream, and 1% milk instead of whole milk, and we couldn't imagine the ice creams tasting any better!I can't wait until the summer to make frozen daiquris using fresh ingredients instead of

Reviews around noise (1.95 of 5)

  • The machine is somewhat noisy, but the noise is better than a timer for letting one know that the batch is nearly done or ready for add-ins
  • The bowl goes into the freezer until it has frozen solid (I just leave mine in there all the
  • About the noise level: I'm rather sensitive to loud noise, but I don't think this machine is particularly noisy
  • The ice cream maker is very easy to use and while not as quiet as I hoped for, it doesn't take long to get great ice cream.
  • Dosen't freeze ice cream as firm as i like, but that is fixed by removing from canister and placing in freezer for an hour or so befor serving.

Reviews around motor (1.83 of 5)

  • I did this after the ice cream had hardened and broke the motor!
  • More concerning has been that the motor shuts off when it overheats (at least it is smart enough to shut off).
  • Maybe I just got a lemon, but this is a pretty poor motor.
  • The motor is quite robust (a bit noisy though) and well geared down, so even thick recipes will work (I made a thick chocolate pudding with condensed milk once... very good!
  • I read a review before that mentioned how "loud" the motor is when the machine is running, but I have no problems with it, and this machine is worth EVERY penny I paid for it

Reviews around bowl (1.82 of 5)

  • It takes only 6 hours or less to freeze the freezer bowl.
  • I like that I can keep the bowl in the freezer and make ice cream any time.
  • I would recommend an extra freezer bowl if you have a family and want to make enough to put in the freezer.
  • Only down side is that you have to freeze the bowl for 24
  • You have to make room in your freezer to freeze the bowl, 2.

Reviews around yogurt (1.31 of 5)

Reviews around rock (1.00 of 5)

  • If everything is not rock cold you won't get good ice cream
  • The ring of rock hard ice cream wasn't just a small skim, it was a substantial amount.
  • Commercial ice cream makers then chill it at very low temperatures to get that rock-hard texture that gave me swollen hands when I worked in an ice-cream store
  • It makes the ice cream fine and all, but it makes this 1/2 inch wall of rock hard ice around the outer edge of the bowl.
  • Other ice cream makers are either way more pricey or you have to buy that horrible rock salt to make it work

Reviews around freeze desert (1.00 of 5)

  • This will produce wonderful frozen deserts from more elaborate recipes, or just use some yogurt and add fruit for a simple, easy and quick dessert for one to four or so servings.
  • How do you produce a frozen desert with proper consistency using this device according to directions?
  • This gem of a unit has the frozen desert category covered
  • This model makes about 1 1/2 to 2 quarts of frozen deserts
  • The machine is also excellent for other frozen deserts like sorbet, sherbert, etc
