Amazon.com Review

Tidy, cordless, and easy to put into action, this Panasonic ice cream maker is a refreshing alternative to its hulking all-in-one countertop cousins. Though it requires more steps than the models where you throw in ingredients and go, this little maker is both smart and efficient, making up to 3 cups of ice cream or sorbet in a few hours. Combining a stainless steel bowl and a battery-powered mixing unit, the appliance features a dual-fin stirring spatula to thoroughly mix ingredients during freezing. A microprocessor gauges the consistency of the dessert as it hardens, so no monitoring is necessary. The battery pack is compact and removable, and the other components feel sturdy and well designed.

Included with the ice cream maker is a clear step-by-step instruction guide and a colorful booklet of recipes to get you started. Most of these require mixing or beating of ingredients before placement in the freezer bowl, but the labor is far from intensive. Once ingredients are ready, simply turn on the power, put the bowl in the freezer, and come back in 3 to 5 hours. Impressively compact for easy storage, the ice cream maker measures just 5-1/4 inches high and 6-1/2 inches in diameter. Panasonic includes a one-year warranty.--Emily Bedard ... Read more

Features

  • Dual-fin paddle for thorough and continuous mixing
  • Makes 1.5 pints (about 3 cups) of ice cream or sorbet
  • Measures 5-1/4 inches high and 6-1/2 inches in diameter
  • Battery-operated ice cream maker for use in the freezer
  • Cordless for easy use; includes step-by-step instructions and recipes

Amazon.com Review

Yogurt is a great, guilt-free snack for both adults and kids. With this yogurt maker, it's easy to add favorite flavors--including exotic and sweet fruits, rich crunchy nuts, and natural sweeteners--to basic yogurt. Just follow the recipes, supplied by the manufacturer, and a nutritious snack, with very little fat and no preservatives (like most commercial brands), is not too far away. Making yogurt takes from 4 to 10 hours to process, depending on desired tartness of the batch. If you're looking for frozen yogurt, you do have to chill it for 2 hours in the freezer before consumption after it's made. The yogurt can be stored up to one week. --Teresa Simanton ... Read more

  • Clean container and lid with hot soapy water and base with warm cloth
  • Makes up to 1 quart
  • Temperature controlled
  • Internal container is freezer-safe
  • Power cord storage on the base's bottom

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and the Best!
I have tried many yogurt makers, this is the best.

The Easiset thick lush delicious yogurt
1. 1 qt. whole milk+1/2 cup alba calcium fortified dry milk( you can use any powdered milk... this is for extra body and calium)
2. Heat in microwave until 175 degrees approx 7 min on High.
(check your microwave of course for shorter or longer time))
3. Cool between 110-115 degrees
4. Scoop some of the warm milk into a clean glass
add, some active yogurt(dannon plain is okay) or add 1 package of Yogourmet Yogurt starter(best starter Ever, at health food store), stir throughly but not viciously!
5. Add the starter mix to large container of cooled milk, stir.
6. Pour milk into Yogurtcantainer that comes w/ set.
7. 4 hours and fantastic Yogurt. Make sure you let it chill, gets thicker...and you won't believe your eyes and taste buds at the thick yummy yogurt!

No additives, sweeteners, strange thickeners. I make every two days, can't keep it in the house, everyone waits for new batch. My husband has colitis and this is saving him!

The price beats all on this appliance!

5-0 out of 5 stars Happy After One Year
I bought this product one year ago based on Amazon reviews and, after some fine tuning of the included directions, routinely make yogurt as I get ready for work--as often as 4 times each week. I heat the milk in the microwave while I feed the cats, then cool the hot liquid in the refrigerator as I shower, and finally mix in the starter yogurt and pop it all in the yogurt maker before I head out the door. I remove the finished product when I come home for lunch. Even if I let it cook all day, I don't find the yogurt to be too tart. Making yogurt with this Salton product is easy. I like the large container size. The yogurt itself tastes great and has a good texture. I've only had two failed batches all year--can't remember why now, but probably my fault. I am buying another Salton Yogurt Maker to give as a gift.

5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful little machine!!!
I had a 6 (separate) cup yogurt maker which was difficult to keep clean. The yogurt maker made by Salton is very easy to use and makes perfect yogurt every time! Just follow the instructions and you have nice, wholesome, yogurt with no additives and at a fraction of the cost too. Truly, it is one of the best gadgets I own.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy, Cheap, Reliable!
I have always loved homemade yogurt and absolutety love this machine! I had never bought a yogurt maker due to the high cost and most of them being too big. (I mean, really, can a single person really eat a half gallon by themselves before getting sick of it?) Making yogurt is really easy and some of the other machines out there make it more difficult. Also, this machine is very user friendly, designed simply (low-tech is best) and very practically. It maintains the correct temperature, takes up a minimum of space, cleans up fast, doesn't make too much, and since I use it almost every day, and have for almost a year, I am very impressed with its reliability. What else can I say? If it were a man I would marry it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Why pay more for store-bought plain yogurt?
I eat a lot of yogurt. Plain. So why should I shell out so much for store yogurt when making your own is so easy?

Some of the secrets of yogurt to help you be successful:

1. Cleanliness is next to Godliness for any dairy recipe. Bacteria or other microorganisms you are inviting to the party can make off flavors, goopy results.

2. Yogurt is thickened commercially with dry powdered milk to add body to the product. American milk from Holsteins is thin and lacking in protein. Adding dry powder milk puts back in the casein that sets up to make a nice creamy, thick yogurt. Jersey cow milk is higher in fat and protein; if you have access to Jersey milk, then you might not need to add dry powdered milk.

3. If you DON'T SCALD THE MILK (bring to a boil) you will leave in enzymes that will result in a thin, porridge-like yogurt, if you are lucky. If you aren't lucky, the result will be liquid milk but spoiled. So scald the milk.

4. After you scald, take the milk's temperature. It has to be around 80-85 degrees and no more, or the culture you stir in will be killed off and again, you won't get any yogurt. Plain yogurt starter works fine. Make sure it's fresh, however.

I like my yogurt plain or with apple and sunflower seeds stirred in. But feel free to flavor yours with apple butter, jam, fresh berries, honey. Kids like it with whipped strawberries or blueberries and maple syrup. ... Read more

Fully automatic and precisely controlled by a timer, thismachine takes the trouble and guesswork out of making ice cream,sorbet, frozen yogurt, gelato, and frozen drinks at home. Ingredientsgo into the bowl, the timer is set, two buttons are pressed and about30 minutes later 1-1/2 quarts of a frozen confection are ready forconsumption. Because the machine doesn't require its bowl to be frozenfor hours in a refrigerator's freezer (like less expensive machinesthat only churn), it can immediately begin making another batch. If abatch becomes too hard the machine shuts off automatically. Not onlydoes it work professionally it looks the part, as the housing, bowl,and paddle are made of stainless steel for sanitation and easycleaning. The 100-watt machine measures 12 inches wide, 11 inches high,and 18 inches deep, and it weighs 38 pounds. Made it Italy, it carriesa one-year warranty against defects.

5-0 out of 5 stars MINT
My father is the most discerning food gourmet. Not only did he attend culinary school, but he also is a phd in chemistry, so he knows his stuff. When we learned that he paid the six bills for this machine, we thought he was insane. Then we tasted the ice cream. Put simply, this machine will make the best ice cream you will ever eat in your life, period. It will humble store bought ice cream or the expensive kind in all those specialty boutiques, and make Ben and Jerry eat their shorts. Everyone in my family proceeded to gain twenty pounds soon after his purchase. Frankly, the ice cream is [wonderful]. The machine itself is top quality, everything stainless steel and bulletproof. If you are ready to step up to the ultimate in ice cream, this is it . . .

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm gonna get fat!
One word describes this machine -- WOW.

PROS
1. Fast. First thing I did with the Musso was pour in a can of warm soda, turn it on, and enjoy a slurpee like drink within 40 minutes! Probably could shave ten minutes off with a chilled can, but the UPS delivery-person had just dropped it off.
2. It is so easy to use, the first three batches of ice-cream I made with this machine was devoured at a party, despite everybody claiming to be "stuffed."
3. Clean-up? Bowl of warm water and a cloth. The blade comes off to be cleaned separately. (If you screw the nut on too tight, it's hard to get the blade off afterwards. I don't know if trapped moisture freezes it on, I just know that it can be tough to unscrew.)

CONS
1. Noise? For something that packs its own refrigeration unit and motor, I wouldn't complain.
2. Calories? Whipping cream, heavy whipping cream, sugar, and egg yolks are not good for the waistline or arteries.
3. Price? Yes it's expensive, though cheaper now than before. But I no longer have to go out and buy high quality ice-cream or Slurpees. That's money saved in the long run.

My only complaint is that the bowl seems relatively small for a 35 lb machine. However, since it "only" makes a quart in 30 minutes, I'll keep my mouth shut.

4-0 out of 5 stars 5 star performer, 3 star price
We love our Musso and use it 2-3 times per week. The ice cream turns out beautifully. We put in rm temp ingredients, and the ice cream takes 35-40 minutes to make. We have saved money and calories by making our own low-fat ice creams. The ice cream tastes amazing because we can put in quality, fresh ingredients without additives.

The main cons against the Cuisinart, Krups and other makers requiring a pre-frozen container:
1) Space-- insufficient freezer space for the pre-frozen containers. 2) Time-- the containers require 24 hr. inside the freezer. 3) Insufficient freezing of ice cream. The ice cream does not get cold enough!
The ONLY pro for the container: easy to clean.

The Musso with its self-contained freezer works faster and chills the ingredients to a lower temperature. It easily makes multiple batches of ice cream, one after the other. The machine is a gorgeous example of modern design. Italian industrial design still leads the world.

The main cons of the Musso: the bowl is part of the machine and is harder to clean; the machine takes up counter space and is heavy; it's expensive.

I will grudgingly admit that the Musso is worth its high price.

5-0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL! ..... and S-O-O-O-O-O easy!!!
I have owned this machine for two weeks and have made ice creams, sorbets, and sherbets. I grew up making ice cream with the old-fashioned, hand-cranked ice cream makers, with all the attendant mess and physical exertion. The 4080 makes it so easy that you almost feel guilty eating the final product! Cleaning is EASY and the noise level is moderate.

5-0 out of 5 stars It might be a great product
The musso 4080 might be a great product, but try and find anyplace that sells it outside the US. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this machine!
I used this to make a custard based ice cream (recipe below) and it came out WONDERFULLY!The ice cream was done in 20 minutes and the consistency was fluffy.The recipe I made before (non custard) didn't thicken as nice, but I believe it was because it was not made with the custard base.I have uploaded a customer image of the maker in action near the end of the cycle.

*TIP*Make sure the bowl is completely frozen and do not pull it out until you are ready to pour the ingredients in.

Custard Base Recipe:

Ingredients for base - 4 egg yolks, 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup sugar.
For Ice cream - base, 1 cup fresh heavy cream, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.

Directions - In a double boiler slowly bring milk to a boil.In a glass bowl mix together egg yolks and sugar until thickened.Slowly pour in the milk stirring constantly.Return to double boiler and slowly heat until thickened.(Mixture will stick to back of the spoon.DO NOT BOIL!Remove from heat and allow to cool.(I recommend putting it in the freezer for about 2 hours before using.)When the mixture is cooled mix in the heavy cream and vanilla.According to maker directions, turn on machine and slowly pour mixture in. If you want to add chips, fruit or anything else to the ice cream, do it about 5 minutes before the end of the cycle.Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome and Easy!
I purchased this after much debate about whether or not I needed a two quart ice cream maker or just go with the original Cuisinart $49.95 one. I am so glad i bought this one. It is so great. Easy to use, makes alot of ice cream,so sleek looking.

I have a tiny kicthen and everytime I turn around I am buying something that will clutter my counterspace, but I have to say this I don't mind. It is square, not to bulky and the cord fits nicely up inside the machine. It doesn't dangle or anything. It's right next to my KitchenAid.

I have made two recipes out of the manual that comes with the machine. I usually don't like "manual recipes" however, these are fantastic. The Mango Gelato was a huge hit with family and friends. One girl who doesn't like ice cream, liked it.The simple ice creams that dont require making a custard, you just mix all the ingredients together and freeze, I was thinking it would be terrible. It wasn't, so you can make ice cream in 30minutes from start to finish with those recipes.

I do keep the bowl in the freezer like others suggested with the smaller ice cream maker. It has been very useful to have it already frozen when I am ready to make ice cream.

As far as noise, it is not as quiet as I thought, but don't let that scare you. It's not like turning on a blender and leaving it running for 25 minutes. It's not an annoying noise. Not like the old ice cream makers with the ice and stuff. It is fun to watch it churn too. So the noise just fades to the background.

It's very interactive and a great thing to do with kids and company.

I really can't say enough good. One of the best appliance investments I have mad yet. ... Read more

With a minimum freezing temperature of –4 degrees F, the Simac Gelato Junior takes only about 30 minutes to satisfy your craving for a frozen confection. Plus, the built-in compressor freezer operates continuously, so you can turn out multiple flavors of ice cream while your guests finish their dinner. A 60-minute electronic timer frees you up for other activities, and an automatic safety mechanism sounds a warning beep if the integrated spatula blade gets stuck. A removable 1-quart bowl, transparent lid, and slim ingredient window all simplify operation, and the unit is also useful for crafting frozen drinks and chilled soups. Though not lightweight at 31 pounds, the Gelato Junior is fairly sleek for its class, measuring 11 by 14 by 12-1/4 inches. Simac includes a booklet of tasty ice cream, sorbet, and dessert sauce recipes, as well as an ice cream scoop. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Ice cream? No problem!
A few simple steps: Turn on the machine and the refrigeration unit. Pour unfrozen ice cream or sorbet mixture into removable metal bucket. Insert stirring blade, set timer and start. Ice cream is ready in less than 30 minutes.

Refrigeration is more than adequate, moving parts are sturdy and well-designed, the price is 1/3 that of similar machines.

The unit is large but sleek. It looks fine on a countertop. Capacity is small, up to about 1 quart, but this isn't a real problem since it is so easy to make multiple runs.

No mechanical problems so far (2 months). I love my Gelato!

5-0 out of 5 stars Gaining weight has never been easier (or more delicious)!
I waited nearly two months for this, and when it finally came I was thinking it wouldn't see use until next summer. I was wrong. I've had to restrain myself to keep from making a batch a day! It's hard to imagine something much easier: mix the ice cream, pour it in, set the timer and go watch TV until it's done. The compressor is as quiet or quieter than the motor driving the paddle, so noise isn't a problem. The "manual" is really just a recipe book (with lots of delicious recipes), but what's to figure out? If I had to pick nits, I'd say that the slot to add ingredients mid-process is a bit skinny, and the fact that the freezer chamber lid can't be removed from the motor can make cleaning it a tad difficult.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent!!
This thing works great!!! Gets super cold and makes ice cream so fast.

The bucket and paddle detatch and are dish washer safe.

Top Notch

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use right out of the box.
UP: Can make multiple batches. Everything washes/sponges well.
My purpose for the ice cream maker was to make diabetic, no sugar, soy milk type recipes. I read the Amazon reviews, I scanned the internet for recipes, I'd gone bonkers trying to use the freeze cannister type ice cream maker. I was ready. When the machine came, the recipe book was more sophisticated, it used liquid sweetener. It takes more freezing time than the recipe indicates to get it cold enough, but if the beater is off and the machine is on, the ice cream will stay cold until you are ready to use it.
I did the recipes as written. My first and still our favorite is the maple syrup ice cream with pecans. I also use honey in this recipe. I have tried various other internet recipes and find that soy milk works best with pureed mango, chunk fruit added at end to prevent ice crystals. I have not made any custards using egg yolks, fat/colesterol,but am investigating a recipe using liquid lecithin. I've tried frozen yogurt, gelatin for thickener, and find that you either make a gelato/sorbet or make a rich cream ice cream. Inbetween takes alot of skill and practice. Plus,in a pinch, even strawberry jam and evaporated milk will make a great ice cream!
DOWN: Awful aluminum basket. I don't use aluminum anything, and would pay more for stainless steele. Everytime I scrape the ice cream out, I cringe. At first, there can be a buzzing sound if the beater insert unit is minutely off center, all you have to do is gently tweak right or left to perfectly align the beater head.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous for diabetics! Great service!
I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes shortly after purchasing this item. I was thrilled to find out that the custard ice cream recipes are high in protien and could be made with Splenda! (although the substitution makes the ice cream freeze harder) I have experimented with a variety of recipes and indulged my sweet tooth that way!
Our first machine we received was damaged in shipping, Amazon had a new machince out to us by FedEx within 2 days, and provided free shipping back for the damaged item. We were very pleased with the service. This machine is quiet, easy to use, and a MUCH better investment than one of the cheaper varieties...you'll get your money's worth and never go back to store-bought junk. :) ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

For a century and a half, since a woman in New York invented the hand-crank freezer, making ice cream has been an American family value. Mom blended the ice cream mixture; Dad filled the maker's wooden tub with ice and rock salt to achieve the below-freezing temperature needed to produce smooth confections; kids clamored to turn the crank; and everyone happily consumed big bowls of ice cream as a reward. This family-bonding activity remains as vibrant today as it was through a century-and-a-half of "progress." With various ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sherbet recipes included, this old-fashioned White Mountain ice cream maker maintains the tradition. Only the use of modern stainless steel for the freezer can and dasher and the electric motor distinguish this rugged maker from the one earlier generations enjoyed. And years from now it will still be used, knitting together a family's history. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars White Mountain is the Best
Twenty years ago when we got married we received a White Mountain Ice Cream Freezer as a gift. It was so different than any other ice cream freezer we had ever had. The ice cream turns out so smooth and the leftovers stay so smooth and good in the freezer, not turning hard like so many other ice cream freezers we had used. We have never had a problem with it at all, until a month or so ago our daughter dropped the motor on the ground and it broke--so we decided to purchase a new ice cream freezer. We would not purchase any other than the White Mountain. We have made many different flavors--the freezer works great with fruit and nuts, choc. chips,-anything. From the time our kids were little and still today as they are teenagers and beginning to leave home--we all look forward to the special days when we gather around and make homemade ice cream. It has become a tradition in our family. This is a great machine!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Homemade Ice Cream Family
I come from a family where homemade ice cream is a ritual and a tradition. Nearly every family gathering (4 or more per year) involves the making of homemade ice cream. People have three servings. And then a few hours later, a few more. Its quite amazing. The quantity made and consumed is large.

Most families within the larger extended family have their own ice cream maker. And all of them own and swear by these White Mountain Electric models. They have owned and used them for many years, having previously burned out many other brands before finding this brand that just keeps going forever. They even own multiple ice cream barrels so they can make multiple flavors using one bucket/motor set. (a good idea actually)

Now that I have my own home, I need an ice cream maker of my own and this will be the model. After all, I would be teased, mocked, and generally looked down upon if I bought anything else. Because the experts (my relatives) know that this is the best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quality bar none
I'm a novice to Ice Cream making. My family and I did own and operate a Baskin Robbins for about 6 years and I got to visit the dairy where they made the Baskin Robbins Ice Cream. For my money, even though this was an expensive purchase, the White Mountain ice cream maker provides the closest reality to taste and texture that commerical ice creameries produce, given the right recipes. The quality of the paddles or solid and designed to last a VERY long time. True the machine is loud, it also works hard to mix any type of ice cream wanted and does it very, very well. We've made about 20 batches so far and with the exception of 2 of them they all turned out perfect. The 2 that were bad, were pilot error. We also invested in the Ben-n-Jerry recipe book, which I also recommend. It covers everything from Vanilla Bean (yummy) to Cherry Garcia (double yum). For the money you'll end up buying 2-3 of those [inexpensive] ice cream makers and wear them out in no time. We have a large family for get togethers so we use the full 6 quarts, but it will do smaller batches for just 2-3 people with no problem. It cleans up easily with the cylinder being Stainless Steel and the wood paddles add a sense of realizime I love, plus it doesn't taint the ice cream, just like the pro's. A+ to White Mountain.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful quality product
This is truly a top of the line item. We have made several recipes and each have turned out perfectly. The ice cream is smooth and silky. The motor is loud so it's best to make your ice cream early and then pack the freezer for later consumption, that way the noise doesn't interfere with conversation.

2-0 out of 5 stars Metal Contaminated Ice Cream
Yes, it makes ice cream but you can't eat it.

Inside the container where the mixture is poured, there is a beater which stirs it as it freezes. The sides of this beater are thin wooden slats connected onto the cast metal beater by a few, cheap metal screws. These screws get wiggled back and forth while the container spins around in the ice. When it finished I was scooping out the ice cream and I found black streaks in it. You had to look closely but they were there. I don't like the idea of aluminum.

This was a very cheap and not well thought out way of connecting the wood to the metal. Poor workmanship. Not recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect homemade yogurt...yummmmm!
There are many methods for making yogurt and keeping it at the proper temperature for long periods of time (wrapping in towels, setting in oven with pilot light, throwing into a thermos wrapped in a blanket, etc.) to properly set it up, but I wasn't too thrilled with the idea of tempting the yogurt fates. This is a nice unit where the temperature is constant and no guessing games to fool the yogurt bacteria. It includes 7 glass jars, which I prefer over plastic. My first attempt (with the recipe using nonfat dry milk included in the box) turned out miserably. I tried again using nonfat milk from the dairy case and it was a great success. I left it overnight for a 10 hour period and it set up well after another couple of hours refrigerated. Added a bit of maple syrup and granola and it was wonderful. The best part of the recipe is that there is no need to boil the milk; just use it straight from the fridge. Every recipe I've looked at requires you to boil the milk first and then let it come back down to 110 degrees. Well worth the price with Amazon's free shipping policy. A quart of yogurt anytime you want it for about $0.50. And made with trusted ingredients! ... Read more

For a century and a half, since a woman in New York invented the hand-crank freezer, making ice cream has been an American family value. Mom blended the ice cream mixture; Dad filled the maker's wooden tub with ice and rock salt to achieve the below-freezing temperature needed to produce smooth confections; kids clamored to turn the crank; and everyone happily consumed big bowls of ice cream as a reward. This family-bonding activity remains as vibrant today as it was through a century-and-a-half of "progress." With various ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sherbet recipes included, this old-fashioned White Mountain ice cream maker maintains the tradition. Only the use of modern stainless steel for the freezer can and dasher and the electric motor distinguish this rugged maker from the one earlier generations enjoyed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product!!
I would nicely like to disagree with the review above. We have two ice cream makers and if you take care of them properly they will last forever. We have had one for over 15 years and the bucket is still good. All that need to be done is for the bucket to be washed out after use. I recommend this great product!

3-0 out of 5 stars So so
Got one of these ice cream churns a long time ago, and it was great... until the bucket fell apart. The bucket is wooden held together with bands that can corrode, so the salt you add to the ice ends up destroying the bucket in a few years. I haven't been able to find a replacement bucket, either. Makes great ice cream, though.

1-0 out of 5 stars High price, low quality
Don't let the high price on this ice cream freezer fool you into thinking you're getting something that's high quality. We ordered one in late November, anticipating lots of fun "cranking" together at family get-togethers over the holidays. The "trial run" in early December went fine. But the second time we got the freezer out of the box -- on Christmas evening -- we saw that metal filings had shifted out of the crank mechanism. Then, as we attempted to make just our second batch of ice cream, the crank handle broke. (The crank mechanism seems to be poorly made, which overly stresses the crank handle.) Not what we expected from a $159 ice cream freezer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Family Activity
I purchased this model for my husband's birthday recently and I have to say it was perfect! We have used it several times since then and everytime I have been amazed with the workmanship that has gone into creating this mixer. It is rare that you find things well built these days. Most companies cut corners by using cheap materials, but not White Mountain. The wood base is solidly constructed and the parts appear as if they will last for many years to come. I will say that if you are looking for a "quick fix" you will probably prefer to go with one of the electric models. If, on the other hand, you do prefer the nostalgia that goes along with this product and are willing to work for your treats then this will be perfect. If you ask me, I think our children today have lost sight of working for what you want and maybe this will be a small yet fun way of helping them learn that lesson! Okay, maybe I went a little far with that last comment, but it does make a little sense.

3-0 out of 5 stars Don't Expect The Same Quality as Grandpa's
The freezer works OK but the overall quality of the product appears to have slipped. The finish on the wood was poor and the lid for the stainless steel container does not fit tight enough. I do not expect this new White Mountain freezer to last as long as the one my Grandparent's purchased and used for 50+ years. For the money, I expected more.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun, but poorly made
If you are looking for an old fashioned hand crack ice cream maker that uses salt and ice - this is the only choice I have been able to find. Unfortunately, I was only able to make ice cream about 5 times before I noticed the gears were stripping. I then took a closer look at the hand crank system - and it is made very cheaply. Additionally, even though I have been diligent about rinsing out the bucket when I am done, it is still rusting on the inside. This is presumedly from the salt water needed to freeze the ice cream. Still, since I very much like hand cranking, I am now looking for a replacement piece for the hand crank system and hoping it will last more than a season.
The good news is that you can still buy an old fashioned ice cream maker. The bad news is that no one has come out with one that is made to last.
My suggestion is to look at garage sales for one built years ago - when they were built to last generations. If you don't find one, then this will do

4-0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia is as good as it used to be!
Bring back all the joys of a summer day on the farm with the White Mountain hand-cranked ice cream freezer. Who gets to crank? Who gets to sit on the old rug over the packed ice? And most important, who gets to lick the paddle? All these vital experiences come along with delicious home-made ice cream. ... Read more

Nothing beats the caramel aroma and fresh flavor of home-baked wafflecones, and this appliance makes one in about two minutes. And, because it hasinstant temperature recovery, it makes cone after cone without delay. The bakingprocess itself averages about 90 seconds, depending on the degree of browningrequired. A color-control dial makes that personal-taste choice easy to select.Accompanying the waffle-cone maker is a plastic cone-rolling form. Illustratedinstructions show how easily it's done, and recipes provide the remaininginformation needed to become a master cone maker. The nonstick waffle platesmeasure 7 inches in diameter and clean with the swipe of a cloth. Overall, the1,000-watt appliance measures 8-3/4 inches wide, 3-1/4 inches high, and 10inches deep. It carries a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars SIMPLY FANTASTIC!!
I recently bought a really great ice cream machine and I happened to be browsing the internet and I saw this waffle cone maker. At first, I thought, "O.K., not another gadget!" but after reading several descriptions of the machine I decided to buy it. Thank God for going with my first mind!! This machine is incredible. After reading the brief instructions, I mixed up my batch of waffle cone mix (Chef's Choice) and set out on my adventure. Spraying a small amount of olive oil onto the heating pads (I always spray oil for the first time of each use) I poured my first coaster-sized amount of mix onto the machine; closed the lid and waited for the appropriate time to elapse. After opening the lid, out came this good smelling circular cone. Immediately, I lifted the cone using a rubber spatula; used the cone roller as indicated and Viola!! A great cone!! Not to mention the wonderful smell permeating my house!!
It took me two tries to get the right amount of mix to make the perfect cone. I had some of the mix slide out the sides of the machine...no problem, just wipe it off. When making your cone fold a small amount at the bottom before you begin rolling the cone; or pinch the bottom of the cone when rolling so that your ice cream will not come out at the end; or put some melted chocolate, butterscotch or caramel at the bottom and let it get hard...a tasty plug!!
The only thing I can think of that would make this one package complete is if the company would supply a rubber spatula, the towel (they mention using) or perhaps a pair of cotton gloves to help roll the cone...it is hot!! However, I really use just my hands. I get a better feel of the roller this way. And, please do not let these couple of items dissuade you from purchasing this machine. That would be terrible. We should all, hopefully, have a rubber spatula and towels!!
Cleaning the machine is a breeze. The non-stick heating pads are greatly appreciated.
I highly recommend this machine. What a great addition to any household that loves ice cream!!
Be Blessed!!

This is the best way to draw customers into our ice cream shop. They smell the waffle cones baking and we can't sell enough. Is there some way to guide me to a source or supplier who sells the waffle cone mix. The ice cream store I worked in 2 years ago bought the mix and all you had to do was add water. I can't seem to find out who sells it. It's quick and you can mix up any amount at a time instead of a full recipe. I would appreciate your help. Your cone maker is wonderful!
Thanks, Judith K. Tooker

My kids love waffle cones but they cost much $ at ice cream parlors and the store. Bought this waffle cone maker & its easy to use - just throw the cone ingredients in a bowl, stir, put the batter in the pan and 1 minute later you have a delicious fresh waffle cone. Could'nt be easier & I've saved lots of $ having cones at home instead of at the ice cream stands. Fun to make with groups of kids too!

5-0 out of 5 stars dessert lover
This product is easy to use right out of the box. I got this a couple of days ago and have used it twice. The recipe booklet includes 3 recipes that are easy to follow. I have tried two of the recipes to rave results from my family. You can have fresh ice cream cones any time and they taste better than the supermarket cones in the box. These cones are a little smaller than the fresh waffle cones sold in the ice cream shops. The only thing you need to remember to do is to grease it well and often even though the waffle baker is non-stick some batter does get stuck in the grid of the waffle baker. ... Read more

Creating either 1 or 2 quarts of ice cream, frozen yogurt,sorbet, or frozen drinks at home takes only about 20 minutes with thisCuisinart machine, and because it features two separate 1-quartchilling chambers, it can make two flavors at once. Salt, ice, andeffort are not needed. Place the machine's chilling chambers in afreezer for about eight hours to thoroughly freeze the liquid betweenthe walls. Then position one or both of the chambers atop the powerbase, insert the plastic paddles in the chambers, lock the transparenttops in place, and turn on the machine. (A switch activates one or twopaddles as desired.) Add the ingredients in the chambers throughopenings in the top as the paddles turn. The chambers chill theingredients to whatever consistency is desired, though dense treats arehard to make because the paddles churn in air.

Users can add chocolate chips, chopped fruit, nuts, and other specialingredients toward the end. The chambers are nonstick for easy cleanup.Storing them in the freezer ensures frozen confections are only 20 to40 minutes away when the mood strikes. With its power base encased instainless steel, this sleek machine readily wipes clean. It carries athree-year warranty against defects.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Family Is Thanking Me!
This ice cream maker is so easy to use, especially since it doesn't require rock salt or ice. The ice cream is done in only about 20-30 minutes and the sound of the machine is not at all loud as compared to the old-fashioned ice cream makers that need the salt and ice. The ice cream is a bit soft at first, but once it is kept in the freezer for a few hours, it's the perfect consistency. I will be making more ice cream than I made with my old machine because of the ease.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Ice Cream Maker Ever!!
People are exaggerating the noise level of this machine. It is far quieter than a blender or even a hand mixer. Since it only runs for 20-25 minutes, the noise level becomes negligable. Unless it's on top of the TV you probably won't notice.

Recipes included with the machine are delicious. Be sure and use pasturized in-shell eggs and try replacing sugar with Splenda for a sugar-free treat.

It also looks nice displayed on the kitchen counter.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Ice Cream Maker!
This is my third ice cream maker. I received my first ice cream maker as a Christmas gift when I was about 7. I opened the box and the ice cream maker was dirty, it looked used, so we returned it and did not get a replacement.. I had slightly more luck with second ice cream maker, I actually made ice cream in it once! I received the second ice cream maker when I was about 13. It was one of those giant buckets with a big machine that sat on top, you had to fill it with a ton of ice and rock salt. It was really loud, big, messy, took up my whole sink and the ice cream came out horrible. So now here I am, 8 years later, and I see this Cuisinart ICE-40 ice cream maker being advertised on TV.. I had to buy it, so I did. I received it shortly after, opened it up, cleaned the parts, put the 2 bowls in the freezer overnight and the next day I made my first frozen treat: Coca-Cola Slushy. It came out perfect, I just poured a few cups of Cola in and turned the machine on, 15 minutes later I had slushies! I put the rest in the freezer for 30 minutes and it was even better! I was excited so I had to make more, but since I did not have any ice cream ingredients yet, I decided to make another slushy, this time I made lemonade slushy. It was like the slush truck came to my house, it tasted great and came out perfect. The following day I went to the store to pick up ingredients to make Frozen Peach Yogurt and Peppermint Stick Ice Cream... I made the Frozen Peach Yogurt first, it came out perfect, it's really creamy and tastes great (and I don't even like peaches!). So then I started to make the Peppermint Stick Ice Cream (which I hate), which I had confused with Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (which I love), so with a little modification, some green food coloring, and Andes Mint Chocolates instead of candy cane chunks, I had perfect green Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. It tastes just like the kind I buy at the store but it is way creamier. The machine makes perfect frozen treats. I was worried after reading some reviews that it would be really noisy but it is not, it is no where near as loud as a blender, it sounds like a muffled can opener. I was surprised how quiet it is. It's real easy to use and clean, and it's easy to make your own recipes. I had some leftovers from the peach yogurt and mint ice cream so I mixed them together and made this excellent vanilla frozen yogurt, which I'm eating as I write this review. It tastes almost like McDonalds Vanilla Soft Serve Ice Cream. Mmmm!

I am really happy with this purchase, finally an ice cream maker that is easy to use and works!

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best!
I bought this as a Father's Day gift for my husband last year. And we are still using and using and using it! Just finished making a Coffee Brulet Granita that was fantastic. Have made everything from rich ice creams to fruit sorbets and they have all come out fantastic. The noise is not that bad and since it makes the ice cream (or whatever!) so fast, the noise doesn't bother us at all. You do have to leave some headroom for the expansion, but once you get used to that, there are no problems. We couldn't be happier and look forward to another long hot summer with lots of cool desserts!

I recently bought this ice cream maker because I am a pastry chef and I wanted to experiment and have some fun. The first time that I made ice cream, I couldn't believe how easy it was!

I also have made rose petal ice cream, lavender ice cream, pina colada ice cream, and bailey's Irish cream ice cream. This machine has opened many new doors for me in the dessert world.

4-0 out of 5 stars Ice Cream Lover!
I got this for my husband for Father's Day a few years ago. Since then, he has been THE DAD of the neighborhood. Anytime we get the ice cream maker out, it seems, all the neighbors gather too! ... a sign of some good ice cream to come! The recipes that come with the maker are excellent (and easy). The directions are easy to follow. As for the review that comments on "shoddy" materials, I must say, I do remember this being made much sturdier when I was a kid, but I haven't found any black flecks getting into the ice cream. I have some concerns that we'll have to replace some parts in the next several years (we've had it 4 years and use it several times a summer and have had no challenges yet). I know that salt is highly corrosive so I'll cut some slack there. Even knowing we'll have to replace parts at some point, I would recommend this product. We think the hand crank is FUN and the anticipation of the ice cream to come only adds to the enjoyment of the final product! Get out the bowls and spoons and get ready for some all around family fun!

5-0 out of 5 stars Exellent Ice-cream maker
Our family loves using this ice cream freezer during the summer. At every BBQ we make fresh fruit ice cream (the peach is to die for!) and the kids love to participate and help crank the ice cream. It is easy to use and the product is made of heavy duty materials, well worth the money....go for it! This is a family memory maker!

1-0 out of 5 stars Very shoddy design for the price.
If you just want an occasional nostalgia trip, or a rustic decoration for your kitchen, then buy this freezer. But if you are serious about making ice cream with it, you're in for a disappointment.

The part that covers the ice cream container is made of a cheap, soft metal alloy. Friction slowly wears it away as you crank it, getting black gunk on everything it touches. It even gets black specks in the ice cream - yuck!

5-0 out of 5 stars A True Old-Reliable
When I was a teenager my dad sold these freezers in his hardware store. This freezer makes great ice cream and with reasonable will last at 30 (that's right 30) years. Once in awhile we would order minor small parts for people who had inherited White Mountain freezers from their grandparents. If you don't mind crankin' and doing things a little more slowly, this is the freezer for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy And Delicious
I was a bit reluctant to purchase this ice cream maker. I had previously spent about fourty dollars on a cheaper model put out by another company. The ice cream came out lumpy, and often was difficult or noisy to make.

This model, however, was well worth the money. The ice cream was quick and easy to make. Easy enough, infact, that even kids can help out. This makes it a perfect summertime activity for those kids who seem to have tried everything. It's even easy to clean up one you finish. Best of all, it tastes delicious. ... Read more

When the whole neighborhood brings the kids to your house, this extra freezer bowl provides needed flexibility by letting you make an additional batch of your favorite ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sorbet. Little assembly is required to use this extra bowl, as it's made to fit on the Cuisinart ice-cream maker. The bowl does not come with a lid for storage of your sweet creations, and so should be kept away from any heat source, and it's not dishwasher-safe. --Teresa Simanton ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great buy if you are going to make a lot of ice cream!
Cuisinart makes it easy for ice cream lovers by selling extra freezer bowls! Having an extra freezer bowl is extremely useful if you are making large quantities of ice cream or you plan on making different varieties. According to the instruction booklet it can take between six to twenty-two hours to freeze the bowl. We usually keep one bowl in the freezer all the time, then when making a batch of ice cream we replace it with the extra bowl. The freezer bowl doesn't take up much space and it's easy to clean! Fantastic Buy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Additional bowl: heaven sent.
We have been using our ice-cream maker for a few months now and love it! The only reservation is that we always want more ice cream! Having to refreeze the bowl before making another bath of ice cream had proved to be too time consuming! The addition of this second bouwl has resolved the only "problem" that we've experienced.

5-0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it's supposed to do
There's not too much to be said for this item beyond the fact that it does what it's supposed to do. It freezes solid and stays frozen long enough to make ice cream. I'd offer a couple of caveats which in no way reflect on the item itself: First, be sure it is thoroughly frozen or your ice cream won't firm up properly. Give it a shake. If there is even a little mushiness to the liquid inside, you'll hear it. And if you do, put it back into the freezer for 12 more hours. Next, get the ice cream out of the bowl as soon as possible after freezing. It sticks to the side and has to be scraped out. This doesn't necessarily detract from the quality of the finished product but it's a pain.

What's the point? Well, an extra bowl will allow you to make more than one batch of ice cream a day. If your freezer is set low enough, and not too packed, you can probably rotate two bowls for fresh ice cream every day. And isn't that really why you got your ice cream maker? I really recommend getting the second bowl, to avoid frustration and ice cream-less days with long faces and frayed tempers.

It's not expensive. Knock yourself out.

5-0 out of 5 stars Homemade is the best!
I purchased the icecream maker which came with one bowl, but liked it so much I decided to get an extra bowl so that I would be able to make two batches easily when I had larger amounts of company. I have made many of the recipes that have come with the icecream maker, and they have all turned out delicious. I would recommend purchasing an extra bowl, just so that you have enough yummy icecream to go around.

5-0 out of 5 stars What should I say?
If you already have the ice cream maker, this will allow you to make more in the same day. I will say that occasionally it will come as a free bonus when you buy the ice cream maker, so look out for a good deal like that before you rush into purchasing this. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Many people swear by the traditional way to make ice cream, with ice and rock salt and lots of turning of the crank. The Rival 6-Quart Electric Ice Cream Maker keeps the ice and salt, but takes away the cranking. A powerful motor mixes up to a gallon of homemade ice cream, sorbet or frozen yogurt; the quantity is nice for large gatherings or just for people who enjoy their ice cream. When disassembled, the ice cream maker is easy to transport, making it perfect for cookouts or camping, provided there's electricity. The instruction booklet comes with 18 ice cream recipes, including Rocky Road and Praline Almond Fudge.

Rival has modernized the old-fashioned ice cream maker's wooden bucket look with a tall blue canister of heavy-duty plastic and a sleek white motor casing with a spiral design. The ice cream can is made of sturdy aluminum, and it is marked with a convenient fill-to line. Cleaning is easy; just use hot soapy water. Towel dry the inner can; air-drying may result in spots. The motor section is not immersible. When assembled, the ice cream maker is 12 inches across by 18-1/2 inches tall, but it disassembles into outer and inner canisters, paddle, and motor. Rival products include a one-year warranty against defects and come with a detailed booklet of instructions, recipes, and tips. --Garland Withers ... Read more

On hot summer days nothing beats a scoop of snow--to eat! This delightful Snowman churns out bowlfuls of shaved ice in just seconds. Kids can slurp flavored sno-cones for a birthday party and adults can sip frozen daiquiris for evenings on the deck. Two 4-inch round plastic molds with lids are included for freezing water, syrup-flavored water, or fruit juices. Simply place the frozen round (regular ice cubes will work, too, but not as well) in the blade unit, cover with the motorized top, and press down on the palm-size operating button. A bowl placed underneath (not included) catches the instant snow. For safety the sharp blade is completely internal and not accessible to fingers when the Snowman is operating. The machine measures 13 inches high when assembled, with an 8-inch-square base. A one-year warranty covers the Snowman against defects. --Ann Bieri ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderfull summer treat !!!
When I was pregnant this just hit the spot every time! I started reading what other people wrote and could not believe people wrote about a snow cone maker, and here I am. I just thought it was worth writting about because it was SO easy! I add the ice or the bucket that it comes with to freeze and then shave it, add my flavor & then add for a real TREAT try a teaspoon of sweetend cond. milk and drizzle on top, OH YUM !!!! Enjoy, its great!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for a few snow cones at home!
This ice shaver went above and beyond my expectations for a manual low priced shaver! The ice, whether from the included tubs or ice cubes, is shaved very fine - more like a soft snow (although, being ice, it hardens after a few minutes). It is fairly easy to clean - the ice holder and blade can be rinsed off, but the top part (which pushes the ice down) has to be unscrewed so as to not damage the motor (but if you're using regular and not flavored ice you can just leave it to dry). It is not dishwasher safe.

I recommend that you freeze flavored water versus pouring the syrup on after the ice has been shaved - since the ice is shaved very finely, it tends to melt pretty quickly whenever something else is added to it. The added couple of tubs, although small, provide the best mold for ice shaving, and one can fill a regular-size bowl full of shavings (about 2-3 sno cones, depending on the size). You can create a little stockpile of ice molds from the tubs, and make quite a few snow cones for a weekend treat!

Overall, this is an awesome little home shaver, a great value for the price. If you're looking for a small ice shaver to satisfy a snow cone craving that makes excellent ice shavings for a small price, this is your product!

4-0 out of 5 stars Ice Shaver at Christmas
We got the Hamilton Ice Shaver for my parents for Christmas! They loved it! The motor is powerful yet quiet, and it sure beats the hand crank model my parents had before. It is easy to operate, just drop the ice block in the top, close the lid and push the button. It makes great, finely shaved ice with no mess and hardly any work at all. It could not be easier!

4-0 out of 5 stars Snowman Ice Shaver
I bought this machine before any description or reviews were posted and hoped for the best. I was pleasantly surprised in what this machine can do. One trick to this machine though, is to definately freeze the liquid that you want to use in the machine first. Conveniently, this shaver comes with two round freezing containers which fit the shaver compartment exactly. I have tried shaving just plain ice first and then adding liquids, but because this machine generates snow, the snow tends to melt before you get a chance to enjoy it. If you freeze it first, the snow cones last a long time and are much better. All that you have to do is put ice into the shaving compartment and push down on the top. You do not have to push for very long or very hard and the entire ice block will be shaved. If you are looking for a manual snow cone machine, I would highly recommend this one as an inexpensive, reliable candidate.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great little ice shaver!
It's very quick and easy to use! Just plug it in, put the ice in the holder (which has one sharp blade), set the top on it, and press down. It takes less than a minute to make a bowl full of fine-textured ice. The texture is closer to snow than the little ice balls you get with a lot of snow shavers. The molds have lids, so you can stack them in the freezer. It's easy to clean the ice holder and molds, but to clean the top part (which holds the motor) you must remove a bolt and wash the bolt and a metal disc by hand. It's quieter than your average blender crushing ice. I love cold treats, and this is perfect for that-- a bowl of shaved ice with a little fruit juice poured over it is VERY refreshing! ...
