Rated 2 out of 5 by Carolsa Kind of a good idea
Took a long time to make soft serve. I kept having to push down on the top to get the paddle spinning again. Don't like the idea of not being able to pull out the canister. Makes it hard to clean. I am giving it another try today. Same thing is happening with the paddle. Don't know if I want to babysit this all the time. Also seems a lot louder than last time.

Bought this because we are "empty nesters" and I'm always looking for ways to make things in smaller quantities. I have larger ice cream makers but this is perfect for us to use more often. The measurements were a little strange (a fifth of anything is just weird!), but I just converted them to grams and used a scale to weigh, problem solved! Tried the vanilla first. Will be trying some more "exotic" recipes that I've converted to the smaller size - hoping the Mexican Hot Chocolate Ice Cream turns out. Cleaning is a bit of a pain, but a quick wipe with a soapy cloth and a spray to rinse it out worked well.

This is every bit as easy to use as Meredith and David said it was. So simple to make delicious vanilla ice cream with just 3 ingredients, that tastes better then any you will buy at your local grocery store. The whole process is about 2 hours. We added a little bacon and some strawberries to the finished product and it was just amazing.

I couldn't wait for this to come in so that I could make my own ice cream. After reading the little cook book, most of the recipes have to be cooked or refrigerated. Only 1 recipe was throw in cream and turn on machine. When demonstrating this item they should say that most of the recipes have to be cooked, I never would have purchased it and now I have to pay to send it back.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bearmom Sooo good!
Got this machine yesterday, tried it out. I forgot about all this "cook In saucepan" stuff. Just mixed half and half, whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla - no messuring, but mix well to desolve sugar - poured into machine and turned it on. 45 min later I had the best soft ice cream! Will try with almond milk next time. I think this thing will be a keeper.
Rated 5 out of 5 by densk9 easy to use
I just bought this and tried it out. The first batch I made was so good. I used the soft serve setting and it came out perfectly. I have not tried the other recipes yet. Just plug in turn on and in an hour had perfect ice cream. I plan on playing around with the basic recipe to make it more sugar free. The only draw back is the measuring amounts. Just cannot seem to find a measuring cup or measuring spoons that have 1/5 of anything. Never heard of such a thing. You get just a small amount of ice cream but for one or two people that is fine. Do not have to keep refreezing anything once it is used. Keep cranking it out. Operation nice and quiet and the buzzer loud enough to hear.
