Back when we were making up our wedding registry, my then-fiance (now husband) really wanted an ice cream maker. The store we registered at had three options: the Krups, the Cuisinart and one that used salt. We chose the Krups based on its smaller size and touted ease of use.
The claims of ease were absolutely true! We keep the bowl of the machine in our freezer at all times so we're ready to mix up a batch of fresh, homemade ice cream with as short a wait as possible. The mixer is very strong and we've yet to mix up a batch too thick for it. It's also a breeze to clean up. You wouldn't believe the raves we've received on the varieties of ice cream we've made. What more could you ask for?
Another reviewer mentioned the scarcity of recipes that came with the machine. To be honest, we've never tried any of them. The most requested batch we've made came from "Williams-Sonoma's Ice Creams and Sorbets" book - it's the recipe for Cantaloupe Sorbet with Minted Melon. We've also found Ben & Jerry's book to be a winner as well.

I am a pastry chef, and bought myself a La Glaciere when I finished culinary school, where I had fallen in love with ice creams and sorbets. One of our chef-instructors suggested the Krups machine as a good alternative to the large, and very expensive, ice cream maker we had there. She was absolutely correct. I use it all the time both at home and in the restaurant where I work. I've even run two batches through it back-to-back. If you're going to make a lot, though, I would suggest getting a second canister.

I've seen many on here with the leaky bowls. I actually got a replacement from Krups...WITH THE SAME LEAK! Disappointing, but this machine makes amazing ice cream and sorbet. Love it!

Here's how to fix the bowl. I found that by taking hold of the top collar of the bowl, holding the bottom part stable under my arm, and twisting CLOCKWISE, I was able to get the collar free and off. This revealed the gasket which lays on the collar of the inner bowl (about 3/4" wide). The inner metal bowl sets into the outer plastic bowl which has this freezing gel stuff in it. Anyhow, once I had it apart, I set the bowl on the counter so as not to spill anything (it's not really exposed, but the metal bowl could come out at this point if you tipped it hard). You can see that the bowl and collar are "threaded" sort of...they have 6 sections that are ridged..sort of like the inside of a 2 litre soda cap..not continuous threads. There are lots of narrow gaps on the inside of both the collar and large outer plastic bowl. I noticed that this gel had gotten into them, so I ran the collar under hot water and used a chopstick to get any remaining gel stuff out of the slots (freezing will expand this stuff and likely causes the gasket to unseat in the first place). I wiped everything clean, relaid the gasket over the top of the metal bowl, lined up the spaces and thread sections so I could reassemble them, and pushed it down onto the outer plastic bowl, turning COUNTER CLOCKWISE as it all seated together. Voila! The "threads" caught. I now gripped the bowl under my arm again, and twisted the collar COUNTER CLOCKWISE until it would twist no more. It was tight. I checked the seal, looked good.

We loved this ice cream maker -- the ease of use, delicious results and quick cleanup were terrific. The only drawback was the unnecessarily difficult lid. However, after three months of occasional use we found that the paddle no longer will fit into the machine, so the lid won't lock down. We either have to stand there holding the lid down ourselves, or replace the machine. It has been difficult ... no, impossible ... to get support from Krups. We will try a Cuisinart machine next time.

Update: I have been using the Cuisinart model for several years now, and it works a dream.

Once I was able to get all of the parts to fit properly and the lid to lock in place, this machine made great ice cream. However, getting the equipment to work correctly was an exercise in futility.
First of all, the instructions don't explain that you MUST have the blade in place before adding the ice cream mixture, else it will freeze right to the bowl, making it impossible for the blade to fit or turn. Once you make it past this hurdle, you move on to the challenge of putting the lid in place (there was a great deal of swearing in my kitchen the day of this machine's first use). On about my fourth use of the Krups machine, the blade cracked, which makes the process even more laborious. When I attempted to use the machine about a month ago, I found that I couldn't fit the lid in place at ALL, rendering the machine completely useless.
I would have a hard time recommending this product to anyone. I'm going to give the Cuisinart model a try next time.

Although I have made some great frozen yogurt with this product, I haven't made any in awhile, because the paddle broke just over a year after purchase, and I haven't gone through the trouble of finding a replacement yet. As other reviewers have noted, it's quite a trick to snap the lid into place without feeling the need to curse loudly; it is not designed intelligently. The paddle is made of thin, cheap plastic, and it takes a lot of stress while stirring thick ice cream. Also, this ice cream maker is quite loud. I wish I'd bought the Cuisinart machine, which has received rave reviews on amazon.
Here is a tip if you want something unexpectedly healthy: I made frozen yogurt using yogurt (drained through cheesecloth, for extra creaminess), fruit and other flavorings, and stevia in place of sugar. Stevia is an extremely sweet herb native to South America, available powdered and in liquid form in the vitamins & supplements section on your health food store. It's non-caloric, completely safe (it's been used in Japan and South America for decades), and it tastes like sugar in frozen yogurt. This way you can make an extremely healthy, low-sugar, all-natural frozen treat. Enjoy!
