Let's start with the design. Everything is made of plastic and the footprint of the machine is huge, so it looks really cheap. It isn't something you are going to want to keep on your counter if you could even find the room for it. The stand is very light and the top part if heavy when it holds the ice cream container. There are a couple of pieces that need to be attached and taken off as you place the ice cream container inside. These have a small range of movement and are difficult to get attached properly. The first time I used it, the bottom spout wasn't attached properly and it started to leak. We stopped the machine briefly to reattach and the container froze in place.
To clean it, we tried to get the top off, but I need a knife to get into the lever to release it. When it does release, the entire top pops off, which includes the motor. It is heavier than you might expect and awkward. Then, the plastic cover to the ice cream maker needs to be removed. Again, a short range of motion and awkward.
The second time I used it, everything seemed to be connected properly. I turned the machine on and used a funnel to get the mix into the freezer. The opening on the plastic top is very small. This brought a thought to mind. How are you supposed to get 'mix ins' into the container? This is something it proudly declares you can do.
It's also extremely loud and I think it is louder than a regular ice cream maker. Part of this is probably due to the fact that the motor is raised up, rather than sitting on a counter that can muffle some of the noise.
The instructions said the mix would take about twenty minutes to freeze. I set the timer. At eight minutes, the machine stopped because it was frozen very hard. I turned it back on and off a few times and finally was able to get some of the 'soft' serve to dispense. But after filling one cone, the mix just wouldn't come out anymore. I gave up. Turning it on and off just didn't do anything.
Also, the machine only makes one quart, if you are able to get it to work. I guess if you have kids, and could get it to work, this would be a good purchase for you. But would one quart be enough?
It would seem a better idea to spend a few more dollars and just get a regular ice cream maker.
The inner 'bucket', however, needs to be kept in the freezer - or at least must be kept frozen for about 24 hours before you want to use it - and only takes about 20 minutes to make soft-serve ice cream. But you have to continuously monitor the machine because it jams occasionally while running. I think those completely unsatisfied with it are expecting something a little more automatic (an expectation perhaps helped along by the overly optimistic marketing on the box) instead of the more involved process. The "add-in" chute is oversold as well and small enough that it's not that easy to use. But still, I think this is a machine that requires a bit of a learning curve and some practice - it's not simply plug-and-play/eat.
We've only used it twice so far and the second time was easier, but it still tends to clog when dispensing. It's not an easy thing to take apart/put together, either. Instructions are a good place to start but I recommend looking online for tips from other users and other brands, as they all seem to have similar problems (although you could probably find a nicer looking one elsewhere - if an ice cream maker is really something you want on your counter). I also wish it had contained a little more direction on the recipes - it only contains a basic vanilla recipe and says to customize it however you want, but I'm not that comfortable with my improvisational abilities.
they all suffer from the same design problems. Loud motor, poor aeration & freezing I have both machines. Nice thing is now Deni people can get parts!!! The sad part is the machine just poops out small strips of ice cream at a time, about 2-3 inches long. Check out the youtube videos. Also checkout the Deni reviews. Deni's soft Scoop ice cream factory. And remember you can only make 1 tiny batch a day, unless you get another speedee freeze canister, it has to be frozen for at least 24hrs. Also you must place your freezer on maximum cold! or you'll get ice cream soup!!! And for god sake, don't leave your machine unattended!!!
Update: canister leaks gel after 3 uses.
