    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.

    Problem with part

    I would give the ice cream maker a 5 star rating if there were not a problem with the bowl getting stuck in mixer and would not release. I tried for almost a week. I emailed kitchenaid but they did not respond. I went on line and found in youtube the problem existed since 2014. I watched a few videos on their experiences and how they finally got the bowl unlocked but I still could not. I called Kitchen from a number I found online and it did work and I got someone to talk to. They told me to do all the same things I learned already on YouTube. I told them I had tried it all so they asked if I had someone strong to try and if they couldn’t to try tapping with a hammer to get it to move. My son came and he couldn’t get it off until he used the hammer. I had tried that but it didn’t work for me but he is much stronger. It is back working byt now I worry it will do it again. The first video said it still would get stuck every time she used it. The ice cream maker is great. But my concert I’d the company. Why did they continue to sell it unless they had resolved the pribkfn. I am not sure how many others had this problem but I found 3 on line who did. So 5 I love it but q!¡’

    As long as instructions were followed, it went perfectly. Keep in mind everything going into the mixture needs to be frozen or cooled for a few hours in the fridge. I also hand clean it only after it's completely defrosted (I can hear the liquid inside sloshing around). Obviously putting hot water to clean into a partially cold mixer will cause fractures to happen in the seal (expanding and contracting). So I simply let it thaw out, and don't put it back in the freezer until it's totally dry. Here are some things that I learned after making my first batch. 1) Don't be tempted to scrape the sides during freezing. I couldn't resist, but all I did was remove cold cream that would have helped my ice cream freeze faster. 2) Freeze the dasher! I don't think that's in the instructions, but the room temperature dasher can transfer the heat to the cold custard base. 3) Add a little more sugar than you think you need, the colder it gets the less apparent the sugar becomes. 4) DO NOT, and I mean really DON'T touch the frozen bowl with wet hands... 5) The warmer your kitchen, the quicker the bowl will defrost. Try not to make ice cream if your oven is on...yeah that happened! 6) If you're making vanilla ice cream use the real extract or beans

    Welcome to the world of homemade ice cream!

    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!

    So far I've only made one batch of ice cream (vanilla, then threw in some broken Reese's chunks and smashed banana). It was soft, and then it hardened up in the freezer. It makes a deceptively large amount of ice cream for a small container. I filled a large Rubbermaid container from one batch. Luckily I have a large freezer, so I always keep this frozen. (Otherwise I'd have to do more pre-planning since it does require to be in the freezer overnight.) The trade off with this method is that it makes it a little hard to clean up since I always keep it cold. The reason I put up with this is because I've read reviews about the blue coolant coming out with too many freeze/thaw cycles. I like having an accessory to work with my Kitchenaid mixer, but I don't think ultimately saves that much space vs a normal ice cream maker.

    Fairly Easy to Use

    This attachment works well and as advertised. Using some of the include recipes or ones found online, you can make everything from plain ice cream to gelato. And it's easy to taste the difference between homemade and store bought. My only complaints are that the bowl is large s drinking room in the freezer to prepare it is difficult at times. Also, although some of the recipes can be made quickly, you either need to leave the bowl in the freezer all the time or plan way ahead of time before using. Finally, you need to let the bowl return to room temperature before cleaning it with hot water. These are probably the same limitations as all the entry level machines so that's why I didn't deduct a star.

    I have been eyeing this for awhile now. I picked it up because the price was the best I had seen. I took it home immediately washed it and placed in the freezer and started planning what flavor I would make the next day. This worked like a dream! Easy to assemble, turn on and viola soft serve ice cream in under 1/2 hour. I'm slightly disappointed that the paddle attatachment is plastic so I'm worried it might get broken...my only other complaint is the bowl size is not very big. It makes enough ice cream for 6 maybe 8 people but wont cut it for a large cookout party like my parents used to feed with the old ice and salt type of ice cream maker. Perfect for my need of making low carb ice cream though

    This is a good ice cream maker if you're looking to save space and make ice cream occasionally. If you make ice cream regularly, I'd probably recommend investing in an actual stand alone unit but for us, this is an ideal compromise. It's nice that you can just keep the bowl in the freezer and use it whenever you feel the need. Bad news is that there's a lot time involved....time to let your custard age in the refrigerator then even more time to harden the ice cream after it's done. You also have to let the bowl warm completely to room temperature before cleaning by hand. The ice cream turned out great though and went off without a hitch.
