Please do not waste your money.

The ice cream starts freezing to the outside edge of the container causing the motor to quit when the bulk of the ice cream is still liquid.
Robert Butler
This ice cream maker works best with regular table salt instead of the rock salt.

I just received this ice cream maker yesterday and made a batch of french vanilla ice cream. I ordered Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Dessert book at the same time I ordered the ice cream maker and they both came the same day. I used the French vanilla recipe from their book. The recipe is only for one quart so I quadrupled it. I used a lot more salt than the directions with the ice cream maker calls for to get the temperature down and also used a little table salt along with shaved ice. Use enough salt with the ice and you should have no trouble getting the temperature down. The ice cream was done when the motor stopped as per the directions. It only took 18 munutes from start to finish. The brine didn't even run out the drain hole in the can before the ice cream was done. The ice cream was pretty stiff consistency right away. We ate some for a taste test and put the whole can in the deep freeze for about an hour and the stuff set up very well. The ice cream was smooth and not gritty like it can be if it takes a long time to get done. After reading some of the reviews before buying this maker, I had some reservations about buying this particular model. I see now that they were unfounded. I had no problems with it at all. I would recommend this maker to anyone looking for a reasonably priced ice cream maker. Just be sure you use plenty of salt with the ice and be sure your ingredients are good and chilled when you put them together. By the way the recipe I used is excellent. Page 35 of Ben and Jerry's book.

COMPARISON:
Cuisinart Automatic 1.5 qt
the Rival Gel Canister, and the
Rival Electric 4&6 qt ice

I have had quite the experience with ice cream makers lately and am happy to pass on my own comparison.

I actually bought the Rival Electric 6qt ice on a whim when I passed by it in the store. This is the same one as the 4qt. ice cream maker that uses rock salt and ice, just larger. (I know it's the same because the inlaws have the 4qt. It was on sale at Wal-Mart and even cheaper than Amazon.

I then exchanged the above ice cream maker, after issues I will get to, for the Rival Gel.

You'll notice, however, I have the "verified purchase stamp" on my review of the Cuisinart 1.5 qt automatic ice cream maker. That's because I gave up with Rival after continued problems with my first two ice cream makers and ordered the Cuisinart from Amazon. It's a keeper. However, you may actually prefer one of the other ones I used more if your needs are different from my own so I'll break down my experiences and you can decide:

But first...some TROUBLESHOOTING that may help you regardless of the ice cream maker you choose. Is your icecream more of a milkshake than ice cream? I have some chef tips:

1.Never put in chunky ingredients from the beginning. They don't allow the butterfat to freeze correctly. They need to be added at the end (chocolate chips, fruit, etc.)Soy milk? No problem.
2.Never use imitation vanilla extract. It contains propylene glycol which not only isn't as good as regular vanilla, it prevents milk and cream from freezing well. Use pure vanilla only.
3.Your ingredients should be cold prior to adding them to the ice cream maker.

The purpose of using the salt with this ice cream maker is to melt the ice as fast as you can. You will know that you are using enough ice when the condensation on the outside of the ice cream maker freezes. When the ice melts it gets real cold and freezes the ice cream. If the ice cream maker does not stop after an hour, then you are not using enough salt. Rock salt definitely works much better than table salt. Rock salt is also much cheaper. After each layer of ice add rock salt. Also don't be afraid if the motor sounds like it is dying. The ice cream freezes and gets thicker and slows down the motor until it stops. When the ice cream is done it will stop. Note that it is not on a timer.

Great purchase. I threw away the time waster wooden maker that I have used for years. This makes more Ice Cream with less Ice as it has a formed bucket that gives more contact and prevents ice spin. Get the book Ben and Jerry's to have the choice of recipes. When I get this piece of modern engineering out of the box, everyone gathers around to watch. This didn't happen when I brought out the old crank model.

This works well. With enough salt, it freezes a batch in about25 minutes. I never had trouble with it taking an excessivly long time as long as generous amounts of salt were used in the brine. The bucket design is nice since it takes less ic, the beatere and stores easier.

There are are two quibbles I have with this product though. First, the motors locks in the same direction as it turns, so it unlocks itself when you are loading it up. Second, the beater does not reach the bottom of the canister, so you have 1/4 in. of solid frozen ice cream batter.

It does the job if you know how to make ice cream, but it also has a couple of small things that keep it from being a lot better.
