Rated 1 out of 5Â by brookspi Very unhappy. I am returning it.
The first time I used the machine it stopped leaving a soupy mix in the canister. Hand cranking was the only way to finish. Not what I bought an electric machine for. Very disappointed in the whole experience. The machine is hard to set up, does not finish the job.

We were so excited to get this machine and it worked perfectly twice. Third time we used it the motor would make a noise, stop rotating the canister and then start again. Could not complete the freezing of the ice cream. Each time we tried to used the machine it got worse. Last time we had to use the manual crank in order to make ice cream. Would not recommend this machine. Appears to have faulty engineering in the cog mechanism.

I had wanted an old fashioned ice cream maker for a long time.
I wanted a wood bucket and it was not easy to find. This one has it and It has both motor and hand crank options, which makes it versatile to use. Just made the first batch last night, vanilla and it was delicious! Homemade ice cream has fond childhood memories for me, it was a first for my husband and 21 year old son. So glad they got to experience it too!

We ordered this for a memorial for my Dad - he loves homemade ice cream. I was very happy with the result, though I totally made too much. It freezes to a point at which you need to put it in the freezer (like all electric makers). It will be used throughout the year when the family gathers and the guys NEED their ice cream. Thank you so much.
