The plastic gear pieces started to strip out during third use.
Marcia Bradley
This cause the bottom and sides to freeze up and stop the ice maker from turning, leaving the majority of the ice cream still liquid.
Kenneth Wright
I contacted Aroma through their online customer service link and I still haven't heard back from them.

I was actually searching for other customer reviews in hopes of finding some helpful hints for this contraption. We purchased this product at Target about a year ago because we had relatives who had such good luck with their old fashioned crank-style ice cream churns. We liked the classic design and the electric mixing option. But we've had quite a bit of difficulty with this. The electric mixer seems to mix the cream too fast--often producing an almost "foamy" result. The crank method produces better results, but the crank mixing mechanism makes a lot of noise and doesn't work smoothly...and it takes a looong time for the ice cream to freeze (over 45 minutes for just a small batch--our salt/ice mixture tested 25 degrees). I was hoping I would find some positive reviews that would be helpful...but we bought a Cuisinart 2 qt. electric Ice Cream Maker tonight instead. :-( Anyone with positive experiences, please review as we'd be happy to dig this thing out and use it for company if we could know there was a way to get good ice cream in the end! Otherwise, I'm afraid that this product had a lot of potential, but is rather impractical--especially considering the fact that more user-friendly electric ice cream machines can be bought at a similar price.

Update July 8, 2014:
It still works fine. I finally got around to making a custard style ice cream, and while it's much creamier and smooth, it's a lot of work. I still like the simple recipe I discuss below in the initial review.

After two years of occasional use nothing has worn out or broken.

--------

We bought this on sale because it handled a full gallon of ice cream and had both electric and hand crank options.

As the directions indicate, this ice cream maker only brings the ice cream to a milkshake consistency - it's not meant to make hard ice cream, more like a soft soft-serve ice cream. If you want a harder ice cream, as the directions indicate, once it achieves the milkshake consistency put the ice cream in a new container and freeze it. It's already been churned, it doesn't need to be churned throughout the freezing process.

That being said, my family loves it, and we've had excellent soft and hard ice cream made by it. I usually let the electric motor go at it for 20-40 minutes, until it sounds like it's having a harder time or the ice cream inside appears to be expanded and isn't liquid anymore, then detach the electric motor, add any fixings (nuts, chocolate, fruit, etc) and crank with the manual crank until it's the consistency of a thick milkshake, or the hand crank seems like it might be under too much stress. We usually serve a bunch of cups of milkshake, then freeze the rest for a snack for later - it's got great capacity.

It's not a particularly well built machine, but for what it's intended to do, it works fine. You have to recognize and live with its limitations, though.

What a huge disappointment. I bought one of these at a local store last week and returned it. It looks good. The aluminum container is relatively heavy gauge. The motor is simply not up to the task and the manual crank is poor. The motor stopped but the ice cream was still liquid.

DO NOT BUY THIS! I PURCHASED THIS AS A GIFT FOR MY HUSBAND FOR FATHERS DAY. HIS PARENTS HAVE AN AROMA 4 QUART TRADITIONAL WITH SOLID PINE BUCKET AND IT IS LOVED BY THE ENTIRE FAMILY. THAT WAS AN OLDER MODEL AND THIS WAS THE CLOSEST I COULD FIND. I ORDERED IT AND WE MADE ICE CREAM THE DAY IT ARRIVED. IT TOOK VERY LONG FOR THE ICE CREAM TO BE MADE. IN-LAWS NORMALLY MIX FOR 30 MINUTES THEN PACK WITH ICE FOR AN HOUR OR SO. AFTER 3 HOURS OF MIXING WITH THIS ONE WE TURNED IT OFF AND PACKED IT WITH ICE. ICE CREAM TURNED OUT GOOD BUT TOOK A LOT LONGER THAN EXPECTED. LAST NIGHT WE WENT TO MAKE THE SECOND BATCH AND THE MIXER WOULD NOT TURN. EVERYONE WAS DISAPPOINTED. NO MATTTER WHAT WE DID IT WOULD NOT MIX. SO I CAME ONLINE TODAY AND AM UNABLE TO RETUN THIS PRODUCT BECUASE IT IS ALREADY OVER THE RETURN TIME PERIOD. SINCE THIS IS NOT AN EVERY DAY USE ITEM I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT IF YOU DECIDE TO ORDER IT THAT YOU USE IT MULTIPLE TIMES PRIOR TO RETURN PERIOD.

We love our icecream maker! It is great to be able to choose from hand crank or automatic. When using the automated churner the motor stops automatically when the icecream is done churning so you have to keep and eye on the icecream maker. The kids love to hand crank it but get tired before the icecream is done. We use the vanilla ice cream recipe to make all our icecream we just add flavored milk from a local dairy to flavor it. We have made rootbeer, strawberry, and cotton candy icecream so far and look forward to making banana, coffee, and chocolate soon.

The electric motor broke down after 5 uses. Buy this only if you want a hand-crank!

I see this has already received poor reviews, but mine has failed in a new way, so I figured I should add my complaints just in case anyone was still thinking about buying one of these.

I bought this last summer and have made 3 successful batches of ice cream, although I found the other problems already mentioned in other reviews to be true to varying degrees. The motor didn't stop right away like it has for others, but when it eventually did, the ice cream was still very soft. The hand crank was more or less worthless because the internal gears are plastic and they slip when there is any significant resistance. On the 4th batch of ice cream, the aluminum bucket got a hole in the bottom, which caused the ice cream to get salt water mixed in it so it tasted terrible and never froze. The bucket is also starting to leak a good deal of water, although I could overlook that if not for the other problems.

To summarize, I'd have been far better off buying $50 worth of very expensive ice cream.
