The box says to let the mixer run for 30 minutes but you will get a better batch it you mix it for 45 minutes. Great product for kids and adults!

Not an all-in-one ice cream/sorbet maker.
Posted by: lininleander from: Leander, TX on
Even though I was surprised that there was some pre-preparation (putting the unit in the freezer ahead of time, mixing ingredients and refrigerating them ahead of time), this ice cream/sorbet maker made an excellent dessert. I made sorbet the first time out. 3 ingredients is all it took (water, peaches, sugar). The night before: make a simple syrup out of the water and sugar, pour it into a blender, add the peaches, and blend. Refrigerate overnight. The next day: take the unit out of the freezer, pour the mixture in and turn it on. Just 20 minutes is all it takes. Hint: I keep the unit in the freezer all the time so that it is ready to make your delicious dessert. Even my 11-year-old can do it. We love this product.

My friends are already making requests fot flavors haha.

I'm So Impressed!
Posted by: MrsJaxn from: on
My 7-year-old daughter asked for a toy ice cream maker for Christmas, but I wanted to get something that she wouldn't outgrow, or at the very least, I could use it. We used it for the first time last night and decided to start with the simple vanilla recipe in the booklet included with the unit. I had placed the freezer bowl inside the small deep freezer in our garage for just over 24 hours. According to the recipe instructions, the ingredients should be mixed and chilled in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours before pouring them into the ice cream maker. I didn't realize that before hand, and my daughter was so anxious to get the process going that I didn't have 1-2 hours to wait. Instead, I mixed the ingredients in a medium stainless steel bowl, using unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of whole milk, covered it with plastic wrap, and placed it in the freezer for about 15 minutes. The machine was super simple to put together. I removed my bowl from the freezer, turned on the unit, and poured the liquid mixture into the ice cream maker. To me, the ice cream maker was not excessively noisy. It was a heck of a lot quieter than the blender my husband uses everyday to make protein shakes. Every couple of minutes, I had to check to see how my ice cream was coming along. Within the first 3 minutes, I could see the mixture beginning to thicken. After 20 minutes, it was done! While it took a bit more effort to remove the ice cream from the walls of the freezer bowl than from the center, it was very easy to do so with a silicone spatula. I was amazed by how thick the ice cream actually was, but I wanted to freeze it to get closer to the consistency of hand-dipped ice cream. The ice cream filled a 32 ounce freezer safe bowl, and left a few spoonfuls for sampling. I can't even explain how fresh and delicious it tasted! My daughter was quite pleased also, and even my husband, who is reluctant to try new foods, marveled at how good the ice cream was. I am so excited about "my daughter's Christmas gift" and can't wait to try new flavors and use the new waffle cone maker and sundae toppings that were a part of "her" gift!

So far so good
Posted by: NelsBells from: Tx on
I've made 12 - 15 batches of ice cream, and they have all turned out well. I keep the bowl in the freezer and I also cool the ice cream mix in the fridge as suggested. It beats the hassle of rock salt and ice for sure.

Great kitchen toy
Posted by: MorganCALI from: San Francisco, CA on
This is an affordable, fun kitchen toy. Makes icecream in less than 20 minutes, and is easy to clean and store. Only downside is that the base must be ice-cold when making icecream, so you have to plan ahead (must be kept in the freezer overnight). I'm pretty sure this is the case with all icecream machines, so don't be discouraged. Definitely recommend this model.
