It's very easy to use and clean.
L. Wong
I thought I was going to get another one after the second one had the same problem, but I read an article about aluminum and its potential toxic long term effects.
Vilma
It makes ice cream but it freezes in the bottom of the bowls too hard.

I really love this little ice cream maker. I live alone, but often have an extra for dinner, and this is perfect. I had a larger one from when my kids were all at home, and when it died, I knew I wanted a way to make small batches. Homemade ice cream does not store well. I searched for a long time before I made my decision.

This little one is perfect, and it works like a charm. I keep both bowls in the freezer, so I can make two different flavors if I choose. I can't understand how anyone could claim it is hard to clean. The paddle and lid pop apart easily, and into the dishwasher. The freezer bowls take a swish of hot water, dry them and back into the freezer.

Most important -- it works. I make my own yogurt, and easily make frozen yogurt in minutes with no strange ingredients. I set it running while we eat -- usually takes about 10 minutes. I hop up to take the paddle out, and let it sit until we are ready for dessert. A quick stir, and it is perfect consistency. You can make up to 12 oz in one bowl -- perfect for two people. I especially love that it works equally well when I am making just a tiny amount for just me. If you love to experiment with exotic flavors that may be wonderful or awful (or expensive), you can make tiny batches to perfect your recipe.

I've been making ice cream for over 20 years, and I am having more fun than I ever did with my big machine. Easy to use, easy to clean, easy to store, makes great ice cream, and is as cute as can be -- what's not to love.

There are a number of reviews here where people have had the frozen bowls crack open, and the freezing liquid leaks out. I thought perhaps the people were careless with the bowls, like dropping them or washing them in a dishwasher. I was wrong to believe that. I too never misused the bowls at all. On only the second time I made ice cream, while the machine was in use, one of the bowls cracked down the side, and the freezing liquid that was inside leaked out, all over the place. There is a design flaw, or a quality control issue with the plastic that is being used to make these bowls. It's too bad because I really like the size of this machine, and the quick time it takes to make good, tasty ice cream. I wish Hamilton Beach would redesign the bowls. Please be aware that if you purchase this product, there is a chance that your bowls will also crack down the side, even if you handle them very carefully.

My husband and I have used this little guy a few times now and it couldn't be easier. The directions are really simple (almost annoyingly so) and include pictures for every step. There aren't really a lot of steps. You freeze the little bowls for at least 12 hours, mix up some ice cream mix (recipes included - takes about 4 ingredients,) pour 6-12 oz of the mix in the bowl, put the little lid on - it's kind of ribbed so it will stay put while it churns, then turn it on. And then you wait a few minutes and you have soft serve ice cream.

Clean up couldn't be easier. Since it's ice cream it just rinses off with hot water. You can't submerge the motor, you just wipe that off, the paddle detaches and can be rinsed off. If you do it right away, dripping isn't a problem getting it to the sink, even if you're on the other side of the kitchen.

As for the consistency of the ice cream, you just have to figure that one out for yourself. You can get anywhere from milkshake to regular soft serve. If you want it harder than that, just put it in the freezer for a while.

I did find their recipe for chocolate ice cream to be a bit grainy and way too chocolaty. But the next day the graininess was gone as everything had had a chance to dissolve. I then mixed it 3:1 with the vanilla ice cream mix to cut down the chocolate and it was perfect. Also, they suggest that to make frozen yogurt you can just put in a container of yogurt. That tasted just like... yogurt. It won't be TCBY by any means. I won't try that a second time.

As for the ice cream sticking to the side of the bowl. This is how these ice cream makers work. The bowl is frozen, the side of the bowl freezes your ingredients. Naturally the ice cream on the wall of the bowl is going to be the coldest.

For our 6th batch of ice cream in this maker we Finally got it right! And it's fantastic! Now when we use this little ice cream maker there is a thin layer of frozen cream on the walls of the bowl (just like in regular large-size makers) and the ice cream is perfectly thick & creamy home-made ice cream consistency, and we love it! We eat it out of the frozen-bowl so the ice cream doesn't melt quickly, it stays very thick and creamy while we slowly eat & enjoy it.

In the first five batches our results ranged from unfrozen soupy liquid after 15 minutes of churning, to a thick frozen shell on the bowl-walls surrounding soupy liquid with ice-pellets in it, to a thick frozen shell so thick that the lid no longer made contact with the bowl that contained about 3 tablespoons of thick ice cream and after letting it sit 2 minutes as per the instruction the beater was frozen into the cream and shell so that the lid could not be removed.

We read the instructions repeatedly and kept adjusting the icebox temperature, and read the reviews here repeatedly looking for tips, and finally we make the perfect bowl of ice cream every time with this ice cream maker.

What works for us:
1) the proper temperature setting on the icebox [our choices are between 1 and 5, and our setting is now 4.
