    Your house will be the new ice cream parlor

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Loving it

    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

    My daughter in law have the same KitchenAid Mixer I thought this would be a wonderful family Christmas Gift. It has been almost a year since they first got this. The family has enjoyed all the family quality time spent together making home made ice cream. They don’t know which part of the process has been better. The quality and fun family time together to make the ice cream or the awesome different flavors and combination of mixtures they include in the ice cream making process. I would definitely recommend this product

    My toddler and I make ice cream together all the time. I got this a couple of years ago when I got my KitchenAid mixer for mother's day. the bowl is really amazing although I have had to buy another one because there was a random leak even though I'm very careful of it and it has its own shelf in the freezer of our side by side - because it has to it takes up a good amount of space. When the first one started leaking my husband said it was definitely worth the price of another because the quality of ice cream is yummy. Also initially the first one I was shipped was damaged. So in theory I'm on bowl number 3.

    This is much easier than I thought it would be. Mix up your ice cream mix, take the bowl from the freezer, put on the dasher, turn it on and add your mix. That's all there is to it. When it ice cream is thickened and frozen it will slow down the mixer some. That is when you need to watch. Stop it and take the contents, put it into another container or leave it in the bowl and put back into the freezer (but be ready to use a heated scoop if you do because the ice cream will be kept very frozen for a while by the cold bowl. Great gadget, very happy I got it!

    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.

    Fairly Easy to Use

    Posted .

    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.

    My wife asked for this specific addition to her stand mixer. We have used it many times. Makes delicious home made ice cream. Be warned though - the bowl requires a significant amount of pre-cooling time. This makes it challenging for any type of spontaneous ince cream making - that is the only downside.

    Not much to say, it works as intended, and is very beneficial in a sense that you don't have to get up and go to the store if you get that ice cream craving (as long as you have the ingredients on hand, which is just whipping cream, half-n-half, and sugar).. Our first batch was vanilla.. 2 cups whipping cream, 1 cup half-n-half, 3/4 cup sugar, and 1 cap full of vanilla extract.. it came out tasting better than blue bell honestly.. we have only owned it for about 1 month now, but we have made at least 1 batch of ice cream per week for our house.. changing it up to peanut butter, strawberry, chocolate, etc.. Very easy to use, only takes 15-20 minutes to create ice cream.

    Used this all last summer. Makes great ice cream. Make sure the paddles are turning when you add your ingredients. Many great ice cream recipes in YouTube. Bowl must be frozen to use. I leave it in the freezer when not in use so it is always ready to go .

    I can eat ice cream again!

    |
    Posted .

    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

    good ice cream maker

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Last year I bought the Kitchen Aid and it is amazing. This year I added the Ice Cream Maker and it works like a charm. Keep it in the freezer and when you are ready to make ice cream, pull it out and go for it. A great addition to the Kitchen Aid.

    Great so far

    |
    Posted .

    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.
