News flash, welcome to the world we live in. The lifestyle you get to live is because of economies of scale and mass production that we enjoy. The old days of 1923 White Mountain freezers are gone. Unless you want to spend $180-$200 on a "White Mountain" ice cream maker that is still getting bad reviews and is now owned by Rival, I would suggest just a few tweaks to make this machine great.
First, my barrel had a crack in it like other people have complained about. Instead of having to deal with sending it back, I bought some wood glue for $4 at a hardware store and bought 6 hose clamps ($2 each) and connected two of them to make them fit around the barrel for each of the 3 wire rings. I pulled off the 3 cheap wires (that are only for show) and put some glue in the crack and tightened the hose clamps then left them on to keep it tight.
Is it as pretty? Probably not as nice to look at as one fresh out the box. Does it do a bang up job for the price I was willing to pay? Yes.
The ice cream has come out fantastic and as long as you follow the directions, you should be just fine. I used the hand crank after the motor stopped and although the hand crank was made of cheap plastic, it still churned it for another 5-10 minutes. After I couldn't turn it, I stopped. I didn't keep forcing it until it broke (like other people who have written bad reviews) I just stopped. I know, weird...
So if you're like me and unwilling to spend $100+ dollars on a product that was probably manufactured in the same continent as this one, and you're willing to put a little sweat equity into your purchase? This is a great buy. I got what I paid for and tweaked it and it turned out just fine.
After reading reviews on several different ice-cream makers, I decided that whether I bought an expensive maker or a relatively inexpensive one, I just had to hope and get lucky to get a good one (they all appeared to be manufactured in the same foreign continent, anyway). Being of a rather frugal nature, I decided on the $70.00 Maxi-Matic 6-qt. maker, and am I glad I did! Upon receiveing the maker, the first impression I got was that the wooden bucket had been marinated in several coats of sealer (and still had plenty of sealer fumes present). After washing everything in soap and water, the smell was gone and I was getting anxious to try the unit out. I filled the bucket with water to let it soak for a couple of hours before using, as instructed, and was pleased to note that absolutely no water leaked from the nice-looking wooden bucket. With the ice-cream mix poured into the shiny aluminum container and inserted into the wooden bucket, I anxiously placed the electric motor unit on the bucket and turned it on, using the very handy electric switch built into the unit, to see how it sounded. It was quiet as a mouse. I added ice and rock-salt, and set back to see how long the freezing process would take. After 40 minutes, the motor finally stopped, so I removed the motor, pulled out the churn, threw a towel over the maker, and let it set for a a few minutes while eating dinner. Upon opening the ice cream container, I was treated to the almost-heavenly taste of vanilla ice-cream of a perfect consistency. After eating, the rest went into the freezer for future indulgence. Thank you, Amazon, for selling this remarkable product.
