And on top of all its other stellar qualities, it's an absolute party monster: It can be used to make frozen margies (yes!!) or serve as a champagne chiller.
The maker comes with an instruction booklet and a decent amount of starter recipes. The implication is that 15 minutes will get you your first batch of ice cream although I've found that 20 minutes is a better way to guarantee a satisfying result. Also, it's meant to remain chilled enough to make a second batch. If you attempt this, I recommend making the stronger flavor for the second batch, or making the exact same flavor. Otherwise, you may end up cleaning the maker between the two batches and the maker will warm up a bit from the cleaning. In any case, plan on the second batch to take closer to 20 minutes.
The maker allows you to simply lift the lid and stir at the 15-minute mark or whenever you need to. Additions to your ice cream should be made towards the end when you have a creamy (rather than liquid) product. Otherwise, adding in nuts or chocolate chips early on means that they will simply settle to the bottom and not get mixed in. A really firm spatula is often enough to scrape the sides, but sometimes I use a large spoon. When the maker is not in use, I store it in my freezer chest so that it is always ready whenever I get a craving for ice cream. One other tip is to chill the mixture before adding it to the ice cream maker.Read more ›
