Reviews around texture (5.00 of 5)

  • In order to get a smooth texture you need smaller ice crystals and to get small ice crystals you must freeze your ice cream base in the shortest amount of time as possible
  • The ice cream turns out with a beautiful texture and it is pretty quick.
  • The iced desserts I have made have good texture and do not get over-hard in the freezer, unlike ice milks and sorbets produced by my cheap ice cream

Reviews around steel (5.00 of 5)

  • After spending a year paying attention to various Ice Cream Maker reviews from various web sites, and then waiting for the sale price I wanted, I was able to get Whynter ICM-15LS Ice Cream Maker in Stainless Steel from a major retailer for two hundred including shipping and tax
  • It cleans up easily and it's nice to have the good looking stainless steel exterior.
  • It would be nice if the bowl was stainless steel, not aluminum, too
  • The prominent "Stainless steel" mark on the box refers to the handsome exterior.

Reviews around customer support (4.33 of 5)

  • The customer support is excellent as well; Ruth G. at Whynter helped me replace a part for my ice cream maker
  • OK 2 years in it now heats up after 15 mins and customer support from Whynter has been lacking.
  • (And, Whynter, if you read this, I'd recommend that you fix your customer support experience - hire more people or do a better job responding to requests - if you don't want PO'ed customers
  • Based on my customer support experience I decided to replace this unit with a Cuisinart since Whynter apparently does NOT want anything to do with their customers
  • immediately I thought I would start with Whynter customer support to see if they had any ideas

Reviews around serve (4.16 of 5)

  • After 40 minutes, I found the ice cream had reached a nice soft-serve consistency
  • Tried the MaxiMatic because of price, but it wasn't powerful enough for ice-bath chilled mixes, and even fully chilled mixes took longer than 45 min to reach a VERY soft soft serve
  • It comes out harder than soft serve and can be served right away
  • However, I was worried that any home ice-cream machines will only produce soft-serve icecream
  • this is a very good machine, it makes cold and firm ice cream...not soft serve

Reviews around consistency (4.03 of 5)

  • The machine makes a terrible straining noise, which is the point when the outer ice cream is frozen to a normal solid ice cream consistency and the inside is still a more line a loose taffy consistency
  • Generally the high fat base keeps the ice cream the right consistency for eating if stored in the fridge freezer
  • After 40 minutes, I found the ice cream had reached a nice soft-serve consistency
  • Though if it's is fill close to 3/4 ways up or more, the consistency of the ice cream suffers greatly.
  • Makes great soft to hard ice cream however you like it, just turn it off when it gets to the right consistency.

Reviews around maker (3.95 of 5)

  • Great ice cream maker, takes a while and is a little loud, but ice cream is delicious.
  • I've had this expensive ice cream maker for less than three months and it is broke
  • I started with the weaker $60 makers and then upgraded 12 years ago to the $700 Lello 4080 Musso Lussino 1.5-Quart Ice Cream Maker.
  • If I were to do it again, I would look for a more expensive compressor ice cream maker
  • This is a wonderful ice cream maker, it has a powerful cooling system and multiple settings, and you can make the ice cream using non-dairy ingredients and have fantastic results

Reviews around result (3.78 of 5)

  • and so I use coconut milk and rice or almond milk as the base and have created delicious results including liquorice, chocolate spearmint, cherry-blackberry-blueberry and banana pecan.
  • I would definitely try a different mixer if I got another--much too expensive for mediocre results.
  • Not sure what recipe the others who had poor results are using, but there may be some minor differences that kept theirs from turning out.
  • Great results again!I am an idiot when it comes to kitchen gadgets, but I love this machine
  • I recommend following the recipes that come with the machine for the best results and use quality ingredients

Reviews around product (3.61 of 5)

  • Ease clean up and does not take up allot of counter space, I strongly recommend this great product.
  • Also, I think folks have a tendency to give a bad review when they get a bad product than folks who have no problems.
  • This product exceeds my expectations, and has been producing several varieties of professional-quality frozen yogurt reliably since its purchase in Sept, 2012.
  • This product is wonderful, easy to clean and we love watching it processing in the window.
  • I don't recommend this product to anyone.

Reviews around machine (3.28 of 5)

  • The machine is very easy to use and I and my family like very much the results.
  • Being an ex pastry chef I can tell you this machine is well worth the money and so easy to use
  • This unit is much better than any ice cream maker I have had and that includes a very expensive Italian machine that I paid much more for
  • The machine was grinding like it was struggling, so I took the ice cream out, figuring it had gotten pretty hard
  • If you like ice cream or sorbet you will like this machine

Reviews around mixture (1.95 of 5)

  • It was fairly easy to prepare the custard base but challenging to wait 24 hours for the mixture to fully chill and mature
  • The machine cools the ice-cream rather quickly, usually in 30min - 45 minutes, but I find that I like to freeze the mixture for a few hours before use for better consistency
  • After chilling the Coffee mixture two hours it took 40 minutes to finish.
  • I also noticed that chilling the mixture thoroughly before putting it in the machine makes the result better (besides quickening the time it takes to chill the ice-cream).Overall, good buy IMO.P.S: I find that a good ratio for an icecream base is 2:1 cream (30% fat) to milk
  • For chunky ice cream, like Cookies and Cream, freeze the mixture, then when it's almost done add the chunks of cookies

Reviews around bowl (1.69 of 5)

  • My first excursion into the world of ice cream at home was with a Cuisinart ICE-21, the kind of maker where you freeze the bowl in advance
  • The pricing is a bit steep for one of these...but considering that it is basically a fully refrigerated unit (meaning you do not need to pre-cool the bowl, or keep adding ice while the ice cream is churning)
  • but I suspect that one of the Cuisinart units where you pre-freeze the bowl would do just as good a job at making delicious, high-quality ice cream for only about $
  • The fact you do not need to freeze a bowl and you do not need to worry about the bowl getting warmer and limited the times you can use it,Open a great door to me, you can do more than one ice cream flavor, whipped cream, etc continuously
  • I actually use it all the time, because I do not need to chill the bowl for many hours first
