Product Description

Amazon.com

Do your kids have a hankering for a McFlurry soft serve treat? Forget about having to head to the McDonald’s drive-through window. This battery-free McFlurry Maker lets you make these tasty desserts right from home. Once assembled, kids pour half-and-half cream and a packet of McFlurry dessert mix into the metal canister, add the mixing fin and lid, and then pack ice cubes, salt, and warm water around the canister. Kids then attach the lid and handle and mix the contents for about 5 minutes until the ingredients reach a soft consistency. The plunger attachment goes on next and dispenses the McFlurry into a waiting cup, where all there is left to do is add sprinkles and stir. The kit comes with a McFlurry cup with lid, a spoon for stirring, two packets of dessert mix, and two packets of rainbow sprinkles. Refill ingredient packs are sold separately. The dessert maker must be completely disassembled after each use for cleaning and has many small parts that are not dishwasher-safe, which is a bit of an inconvenience. Smaller children will absolutely need a parent’s help to set up and break down this kitchen gadget for each use. --Cristina Vaamonde

The crank is very difficult to turn, my eleven year old was getting frustrated.
Amazon Customer
First of you have to buy cream, & add a salt & water mix to the top just to make a serving of the stuff that only fills about half of the cup.

So we thought maybe we did something wrong, and went through the process with intsructions again.

We just bought the McFlurry machine for my 8 year old daughter for her birthday. It is fairly easy for an adult to put together, but a little confusing for a kid. That's not a problem however, as adults are used to putting toys together for a child.
First of all, you have to be careful and not fill up the canister too much with the ice and salt, or you will get salt in your ice cream, which believe me, doesn't taste very good.
Also, be prepared to put a towel under the machine or you will have water every where. By the way, you will need 3/4 cup of table salt each time you use the machine, so make sure you buy salt before hand. After you turn the handle for like 6-8 minutes, then your ice cream is done. Keep in mind the metal container that the ice cream is made in is about half the size or less than the cup you are supposed to eat it out of. So you wind up with your cup about 1/4 full. A few bites maybe. To fill the cup up and peaked over the brim like they show on the front of the box you would need about 5 packets of McFlurry mix and mix it up 5 times. Which of course, it only comes with 2 packets of the mix, and besides, by the time you got done making ice cream 5 times for 6-8 minutes each time, what you had already made would be melted. Most kids would get tired doing this 5 times in a row anyway. They would have to set what they had already made into the freezer and total time would be about an hour to fill that darn cup all the way up.
So in other words, you follow all the directions, you will get a 1/4 ice cream in the cup that is provided. Maybe 3 or 4 bites at best. We also bought the refills at $5.00 each. They come with 2 packets and the 2 packets sprinkles. So we wasted $35.00 on the machine and refills.
Oh, and clean up is not easy and simple.

Basically this toy is the same as buying a child's ice cream maker type toy only it is in the shape and comes out like a McFlurry. Other than the mix, the only things you need are half and half (1 cup per mix package), ice and table salt.
The toys is not fun because my 6 or 8 year old could not turn the crank to mix it without help. There is a little arm that goes down into the ice/salt mixture and churns that and it is hard to turn it particularly at first.
The size cup that is provided is about the size of a small or medium drink from McD's and one mix package filled this cup up about 1/3 of the way. It was also difficult for my 6/8 year olds to use the plunger to dispense the McFlurry.
I suppose it could have a tiny bit of educational value if the parent explained the reason for the ice salt/mixture but other than that I don't really see any.
The product itself is durable. It doesn't seem like anything would break and nothing did when we used it.
My kids were disappointed and said that they would have had just as much fun with less aggravation had we just bought a 1/2 gallon of ice cream.

I bought this for my 8 year old and what a waste of time and money. First it doesn't tell you on the box that you need salt and cream, so we opened it up only to put it back until I went to the supermarket and bought cream and salt. It was hard to put together and after it was ready to use, the mcflurry tasted aweful. It tasted like vanilla with salt in it. This product stinks and I would never recommend it to anyone.

Thi McFlurry Maker doesn't make anything more than vanilla tasting cream! The machine does m=not freeze the stuff you put in it and it's hard to wash. If you turn the crank handle too fast, it flies off! I amvery disappointed in this item. DO NOT BUY!

My 8 year old son was able to put it together in a snap by following the pictures. I only helped in the measuring
of Half and Half and Salt. He did the rest. He did seem to turn crank handle for a long time and got a little tired but after adding more salt to the ice, which makes ice colder, the McFlurry mix and cream started hardening.
I helped push mixture out and we each had a small McFlurry from one packet. Clean up was a breeze as everything came apart easily and we could get our hands in with a sponge. We used the Sprinkles but I see us using everything in the cabinets soon. I hope the refills are available soon.

My 7 year old just got this for her birthday. So we decided to use it tonight. Following the directions closely it seemed very simple in the beginning. Soon enough, it was time to begin turning the crank. As I did, my daughter exclaimed that it was too hard to turn and the stuff was running out on the table. Sure enough, the cream was dripping out the bottom. I checked to make sure the bottom was all of the way closed, and indeed, it was. I thought maybe it was just a little overspill and continued. The more I turned the top, the more that ran out the bottom. I explained to my daughter that maybe we had done something incorrectly and would start over. That is what we did. We washed it and started over.(Which is a long process) I had company at the house at this point who assembled it along with me and we proceeded to start from scratch. Once again, I had cream dripping out of the bottom.I could see my daughter was quite upset. So we took our time and re-read the directions, it was not an error on our part. We added a little more cream and it, like before, dripped out the bottom. We turned on anyway. After 10 minutes of turning, it was still liquid cream.
I have never been so displeased with a toy before. Not only that, I tried to send a letter to the company thinking maybe mine was a defect, but the email address that they give sends a message back that "The recipient was unavailable to take delivery of this message" Do not waste your time or money on this product.
