I got a KitchenAid mixer last holiday, and I soon begged for this accessory afterwards. It's fabulous! Put the bowl in the freezer, pop in the ingredients, and mix mix mix until it gets more solid. It's a nice dual use for the mixer and the bowl isn't so huge that it takes up the whole freezer.

Your house will be the new ice cream parlor

Many many things have been said about this Kitchen Aid accessory, some are good, some others are just plain nasty. I bought mine back in may and I wanted to give it some time to make a real fair review. As per the bad reviewers, well, I must say that my unit came defective, blue coolant began to show just after 2 weeks. I just went to BB and they replaced it without any objection. Leaving that bad incident in the past, I must say this Ice Cream maker will make you happy if you are an ice cream enthusiast. Of course a few important things must be say OUT LOUD first: You need to follow the instructions to the tee if you want product durability and then, the most important characteristic you must develop is PATIENCE. It takes somewhere from 15 to 24 hrs to have the unit cool enough for ice cream preparation, then, any custard base you might need to prepare to make the ice cream mix must be "mellowing" in the fridge overnight and once ice cream is ready, you need, at least 10 hours for maturation on the freezer, in other words, if you begin friday, you will be enjoying ice cream most likely at sunday. The other key issue about home made ice cream shall be the cost. As per my experience so far, it will cost you approximate $12 to $15 (depending on flavors) for each 1/2 gal of ice cream. All that being said, reward will be like no other. I will paraphrase what my ice cream book author says: "HOME MADE ICE CREAM SHALL NOT BE CHEAPER THAN THE SUPER-MARKET ONES, BUT THE SUPER-MARKET ONES, NEVER EVER WILL BE BETTER THAN THE HOME MADE ONES". Honestly, there are no limits as far as how many flavors you could make, once you get the hang of it, the sky is the limit. Believe me, you will be rewarded...Ahhh and finally, if you don't happen to reach ice cream consistency (Ice cream maker will produce soft-serving texture right off the bat), for sure you are doing something wrong. With the Kitchen Aid Ice Cream accessory you won't buy any other ice cream carton never again, not at the supermarket nor any ice cream parlor. Welcome to the endless world of Ice Cream.

We have only made ice cream one time so far but did enjoy the ease of making cream. Do not cut any corners in freezing the bowl. You need to know a day or two before you want ice cream to start making ice cream. The day before you will need to freeze the bowl and make the ice cream mix and chill overnight. The next day you put your mixture into the bowl and let stir for 10-15 minutes and the place in a separate container and allow to thicken or harden for a couple of hours.

This accessory makes it so easy to make delicious ice cream anytime you want it. I bought a great ice cream recipe book to use with it and enjoy experimenting with it. This accessory came free with the purchase of my KitchenAid so it was a great value.
I have no complaints: it's a great size for storage in the freezer and for the amount of ice cream it produces.

Welcome to the world of homemade ice cream!
Posted by: Charger55 from: Lordsburgh, CA on
For Christmas I bought the wife (myself) a Kitchen Aid mixer and decided shortly after it was time to buy some of the wonderful gadgets that go with it. So far the grinder and sausage attachment have been outstanding so I figured I'd jump into the world of homemade ice cream and the ice cream maker attachment is fantastic. So far in the month that I've owned it I've made 6 different flavors of ice cream and two sorbets, next up is Cherry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt. It's simple to use, easy to clean and the ice cream turns out awesome. If you don't mind doing a little internet research you can find super ice cream and yogurt recipes that can be made in a snap with this attachment. Just be prepared to give the ice cream a little extra time in the freezer as the finished product is more like a soft serve ice cream. My only knock on the maker is I wish it had a bigger freezing bowl. Bigger bowl equals more ice cream!

Excellent Attachment for the Stand Mixer
Posted by: ShoppingPrincess from: San Jose, CA on
This attachment worked wonderfully! The directions are very clear and easy to understand. I started off with the vanilla ice cream, and the finished result turned out fabulous! This product is worth every penny if you already own the stand mixer. Very easy to clean the bowl and utensils. I keep the bowl in the freezer at all times. I am anxious to try the fruit sorbets next.

Even though it takes long for the initial freeze, if you always wash it after you use it and leave it in the freezer, you won't have to worry about not having it when you are ready :-)

Delicious ice cream and easy to make
Posted by: freddysoon from: chandler on
I have used this maker several and it works great. Be sure to follow directions and you will not have any trouble. Most ice cream takes only 20 minutes to complete.

Quick and Convenient!
Posted by: RoLyMa27 from: on
Quick and easy homemade ice cream! Only makes one quart at a time though (which we knew before hand) and you have to refreeze the bowl before you make the next batch. Excellent build quality, easy to use and clean!
