This little one is perfect, and it works like a charm. I keep both bowls in the freezer, so I can make two different flavors if I choose. I can't understand how anyone could claim it is hard to clean. The paddle and lid pop apart easily, and into the dishwasher. The freezer bowls take a swish of hot water, dry them and back into the freezer.
Most important -- it works. I make my own yogurt, and easily make frozen yogurt in minutes with no strange ingredients. I set it running while we eat -- usually takes about 10 minutes. I hop up to take the paddle out, and let it sit until we are ready for dessert. A quick stir, and it is perfect consistency. You can make up to 12 oz in one bowl -- perfect for two people. I especially love that it works equally well when I am making just a tiny amount for just me. If you love to experiment with exotic flavors that may be wonderful or awful (or expensive), you can make tiny batches to perfect your recipe.
I've been making ice cream for over 20 years, and I am having more fun than I ever did with my big machine. Easy to use, easy to clean, easy to store, makes great ice cream, and is as cute as can be -- what's not to love.
In the first five batches our results ranged from unfrozen soupy liquid after 15 minutes of churning, to a thick frozen shell on the bowl-walls surrounding soupy liquid with ice-pellets in it, to a thick frozen shell so thick that the lid no longer made contact with the bowl that contained about 3 tablespoons of thick ice cream and after letting it sit 2 minutes as per the instruction the beater was frozen into the cream and shell so that the lid could not be removed.
We read the instructions repeatedly and kept adjusting the icebox temperature, and read the reviews here repeatedly looking for tips, and finally we make the perfect bowl of ice cream every time with this ice cream maker.
What works for us:
1) the proper temperature setting on the icebox [our choices are between 1 and 5, and our setting is now 4.50],
2) leaving the bowls in the freezer for 24 hours [we wash & dry them after eating the ice cream and put them right back into the freezer where they stay until the next day when we're ready to make it again--we just leave them in there all the time now when we're not making & eating ice cream],
3) once a week mixing enough of the recipe for two servings daily & leaving it in the icebox all week so it's always cold enough to use in the maker,
4) when we're ready to make the ice cream we assemble the lid and have it ready to immediately put in the bowl BEFORE we take anything out of the icebox,
5) take the bowl out of the freezer & immediately take the recipe out of the icebox & immediately pour enough liquid to come up to one-half inch below the inner rim of the bowl & immediately put the lid on top & immediately turn it on,
6) set the timer for six minutes,
7) after six minutes turn off the lid & unplug & take it out of the ice cream & no we don't leave the lid on per the instructions because it isn't necessary as it is the perfect consistency and ready to eat.
It was worth sticking with it and making the adjustments, because we are really, really enjoying the results!
This one did not work the way the product is supposed to. The lid popped way up and down while churning and if you applied the slightest pressure to hold the lid on the paddle wouldn't turn to churn the ice cream. A shame, because when they work you can make really healthy soft serves ice cream with no sugar.
