The recipe book is confusing as to how much ice cream is made. Fortunately, I have another recipe book that is rationed to one gallon batches. The maker did a good job of mixing the batch, however, I thought the mix was still a little soft when the motor quit. The day was in the 90's though so it might mix a little stiffer on a cooler day.

Disappointing

Recommended Not Recommended

After the first, and only attempt, the bucket actually cracked clear down the side when it dried and we haven't used it since. There's two methods of mixing, hand crank and motor. The hand crank has a dual action, so while you turn one way, the canister will actually spin the opposite, which gets more spins per turn and makes it churn faster. The motor however doesn't do this. It only turns one way, and is much slower than if you do it by hand. Are all motors like this, or do any ice cream makers offer that feature with motor use? I actually thought it was broke, but couldn't find any information confirming or denying it was performing the way it was intended. We churned by hand for 30 minutes, then by motor for the last 15, and still had liquid. We had followed the directions in the booklet to a tee(and freezing the canister for 24 hours), and it still didn't set up. We ended up putting it the the freezer and it was just like eating a frozen milkshake. Not quite what I was hoping for.

Aroma® 6 qt. Traditional Ice Cream Maker

I made Ice cream 2 times, it was really good. It is easy to use, I use the electric. It's nice that it has the Hand crank. The handle on the bucket is made cheap, I taped mine, maybe it will last. Bucket leaked both times at the beginning and then it would stop. Over all I like it.

1) I paid for overnight shipping and it took 5 days to get it; Bed, Bath, and Beyond service = 1 star 2) Quality of materials feel somewhat cheap 3) The instructions for use (which we didn't really read thoroughly before use) says to put metal container in freezer for 24 hours before use, not seeing this at first we put it in the freezer just for the amount of time we prepared ice cream mix (which was stovetop cooked) and it did just fine. 4) this size makes a LOT of ice cream! Probably would've gotten the smaller one if I would've realized just how much 6 quarts of ice cream was.

Easy to put into RV and have ready when family & friends show up. Grandkids love homemade ice creams!! Wish there was a feature where it could be plugged up to keep it cold/frozen after ice cream is made to hold it for a while. I would pay more for a feature like that. Jal

We purchased this for a family event. We was using the hand crank to make it a family fun event and not even 10 minutes into cranking the handle broke. We had to put the electric motor on to finish the ice cream. For the amount of money you pay for the product, you wouldn't expect it to break the first time using it.

Great Homemade Icecream
Nesi ·
Recommended Not Recommended

This ice cream worked perfectly and we've used it a few times since we bought it. It makes 6-qts of smooth, creamy homemade ice cream in about an hour or so. Its a little loud but not nearly as loud as they used to be. We didn't have to read instructions, as its pretty self explanatory if you've ever had one of these. Even if you haven't, its easy to use and comes with several recipes that you will enjoy. Great quality wood bucket, with metal container that keeps ice cream cold for storage or while you enjoy with a large party for the summer. Would definitely recommend this product, especially for the price and even better if you have your 20% off coupon to use :)
