With this attachment you can convert your KitchenAid stand mixer into an ice cream machine
After conversion you can make sorbet, frozen yogurt, and soft consistency ice cream in quantities of up to 2 quarts, and in only around 25 minutes. You first need to place your freeze bowl in your freezer for at least fifteen hours.
The attachment is powered by your stand mixer, you just need to add the batter and let the freeze bowl and dasher do all the work of making your homemade fresh ice cream.
Recommend you hand wash the freeze bowl, but the drive assembly, adapter ring, and dasher can all be put in the dishwasher for cleaning
The attachment measures 10 8/9 inches x 10 2/7 inches x 10 2/7 inches and comes with a hassle free one year warranty.
Being an attachment you don't need a completely new appliance to make your homemade ice cream
While making ice cream it is relatively quiet
Gives you the option of using all organic ingredients
Making ice cream with this attachment is also a lot of fun
This attachment is reasonably priced
Would like if the freeze bowl didn't take quite so long to freeze. Plus it only allows you to make one batch as the liquid in the freeze bowl thaws within about forty minutes or so. So if you want a second batch you will need to wait another fifteen hour to refreeze the freeze bowl. Of course, you could always just purchase a 2nd freeze bowl and have them both in the freezer.
Might not work on older models of KitchenAid stand mixers
The plastic connector is poorly constructed
Only makes custard style ice cream, Philadelphia style doesn't have any eggs in it and needs more whipping power than this ice cream attachment is capable of producing.
This ice cream maker/attachment is fun to use and very easy to use if you follow the directions. Unfortunately it doesn't work with older models even though they state that it works will all models. The ice cream that was made using the Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream book recipes was absolutely delicious! This item works great and can be purchased at a very reasonable price for what you are getting. Buy it and enjoy some homemade ice cream today!
