The Whynter Sno is a fully contained 2 liter ice cream machine. It will both churn and freeze a mix to create:

- Frozen Custard
- Ice Cream
- Ice Milk
- Gelato
- Sorbets
- and even icy beverages (think Margaritas and the like.)

The Pros

It Works!
(Yes, this is a big deal. How would you like it if you plunked down $200 only to find your ice cream mix comes out soup or filled with chunky ice cubes?) This machine definitely gets the job done; It makes ice cream.

It is surprisingly quiet.
While you wouldn't want to use it in a library, this machine is actually pretty quiet. Most of us who don't have any experience with an Ice Cream Machine can only relate to the beasts they have at the local Ice-Creameries (You know the ones: Buy One, Get One Free on certain days...) These industrial behemoths are LOUD. This machine (not being an industrial behemoth) is not loud. It **IS** louder than my refrigerator (barely,) but not quite as loud as my washing machine. It's NO WHERE NEAR AS LOUD as a Blender, Food Processor, or Stick Blender (if those are your only gauges of relevance.)

You can make your own concoctions.
Some local ice-creameries will make you a custom blend of ice cream. For example, if you want chocolate chips in some strawberry ice cream, they'll do that. (Probably not nationwide chains, but the local shop might.) But ask them to make anything crazier than that, and you're probably out of luck. Rosewater ice cream? Sorry. Green Tea ice cream? You're probably out of luck.

With this machine, you can make whatever flavors your heart desires, and that's pretty cool.

Construction is solid. I haven't been able to confirm that this is the same as the Lello Gelato Pro, but the specs are the same, as is the appearance ('cept color). Packaging was poor for such a heavy appliance, and was only marginally holding together when the product arrived. However, the unit was in fine shape and works fine. The instruction manual does little to explain all the beep codes that the unit makes, but you'll figure them out in short order. There were times that the refrigeration shut off, and we were puzzled as to why. If it does stop (hard to tell, you get no indication except that your mixture doesn't freeze and the exhaust air on the side is cool), turn off the power and unplug for a minute and it will reset. If you have a power outage or remove the churn motor assembly while running, the refrigeration will shut off. It's a sensible feature, just not documented.

Overall, this is a huge step up from makers using a bowl you put in the freezer. It's by far the best bang/buck in a maker with built-in refrigeration. I deducted one star for the incomplete instruction book.

I was close to buying the Lello equivalent (made by the same company), but decided to try the Whynter. It's much cheaper, and seems to have very similar specifications. I've used it twice and I've been very pleased with results. I'm not especially impressed by the engineering, and therefore can only give it 3 stars currently. My main displeasure is that the lid cannot be washed, and the items that _can_ be washed must all be hand washed. I think that's just lame. Unit is reasonably quiet. I'll update this review in a few months. I've uploaded 10 photographs, too, and added some notes to each that might help you decide whether this machine is a good choice for you.

While the SNO Ice Cream Maker certainly has some good features, its durability is terrible. We purchased the ice cream maker less than a year ago. It is indeed great at making ice cream and frozen juices, etc. As others have indicated, it is quite noisy, but we just put it in another room and closed the door when using it.

Unfortunately, after less than ten uses, one day we put the ice cream mixture into the device, and started it up. It ran and ran, and after well over two hours, we realized that while the machine was making all the noise, it was not cooling the mixture at all. So a week or so later I tried it again. Same outcome. The unit did not cool down the mixture. So I wrote Whynter LCC about it, inquiring what might be wrong. Their response was,

"According to your description, the compressor of your ice cream maker may be defective or out of refrigerant. You can return the unit to us for repair or replacement and the estimated repair fee will be $160.00 + $35.00 return shipping."

That was not a typo. With postage costs, the repair would be over $200 to fix a machine that was hardly used. I paid less than that when I bought it last year!

So my review comes with the warning: While the machine works well when it does work, be warned that when it needs repair...even after little use...this company will soak you! I will not throw good money after bad, and so this device will now be junked. It is shocking to realize that the ice cream I made from this machine cost me over $40 a gallon! From my experience, I would recommend either another brand ice cream maker that backs their machine better, or purchasing ice cream from your local store. (In the end it will cost you a LOT less!)
