The machine is rather heavy but I expected this after reading the specifications prior to buying the machine in the first place. The weight (~45 pounds) could be a sign of quality in some cases. I know it gets cold very fast. After some use, I purchased a nifty cart with wheels from Amazon that I call the ice cream cart.
The outside of the machine is made of very shiny plastic. After use, any sticky residue seems to easily wipe away with a wet sponge or cloth. I may have preferred a stainless steel exterior but I’m not willing to pay hundreds of dollars more for stainless. That said, I’m perfectly happy with the white plastic which is more dent resistant than stainless anyway. The seams look straight and the exterior fit appears well done. To me, the machine looks nice and resembles a traditional, high priced, soft ice cream machine. This is good and bad. Children recognize the machine right away. If they see it, they want ice cream right away whether you have the ingredients or not.
The power cord is a hefty three prong version at a good length of about 4 feet.
Where is the power switch? Why would someone put a power switch on the bottom? Then it occurred to me that sticky liquids are poured into the top of the machine. Spills could quickly find their way to the switch and add difficulty in cleaning not to mention a potential electrical issue if the switch was not 100% waterproof. This placement could also make manufacturing easier.
The switch remains clean and dry. There is no problem getting to the switch as long as you know where it is. The machine’s feet keep it high and dry.
The funnel is made of the same slippery material which makes cleaning easy. When most funnels fill up, they tend to gurgle and spit out small bits of liquid when the air escapes. This machine has a baffle where the funnel fits to allow air to escape while you are filling the machine. No spitting or gurgling. This is another thoughtful design feature.
There is a dispense sensor just under the spout that turns on the churn motor anticipating the user’s intention to dispense ice cream. It’s the little black square in the photos. If you are using a glass dish, you may need to rotate your hand and block the window to turn on the motor. This is easy once you know about it. The dispense sensor window has a lip over it. Drips, if any, just go around the window to prevent blocking it. That’s thoughtful.
This machine is rather loud when the churn is running. I expected this as I have used other motorized churning machines. It’s a machine, it’s a churn, and it needs to be strong. It’s going to make some noise.
I was worried about how much ice cream would be wasted in the mechanism when you are done. I took a couple photos of what is left in the machine, not much. A couple of teaspoons maybe. This is pretty good.
If you watch some of the videos, cleaning really is that easy. While the instructions say parts are dish washer friendly, I always wash the parts wash by hand. The rinse function gets nearly everything out. Then I take it apart and clean the parts with soapy water. Margarine does make a good lubricant for the seals. I clean the seals carefully as well. The 3 seals look like good quality silicone. My machine came with a couple of tube brushes to help if needed.
I have used the machine about 7 times so far. I’ve mixed homemade recipes from the machine’s website as well as the free mixes that come with the machine. It comes with a pretty wide variety of common flavors with double doses of the typical favorites.
I’ve started experimenting with my own homemade flavors. That will take some trial and error. It helps to read up on soft serve ice cream. Things like dry milk, fat content, and natural thickeners can really improve the texture. Follow the instructions and go back to a known recipe if you need practice. The vanilla recipe from the website is very good. I’m going to try others as well.
When I bought this machine, reviews were sparse. I felt I was taking some risk but now I’m pretty happy with the purchase. I hope this review is helpful.
Sits nicely on our kitchen counter area; fits under the upper cabinets. Easy to clean and re-use (and re-use).
