This is the first ice cream maker I've ever owned or used. It works great and the resulting ice cream has turned out fabulous.

The bowl freezes well and I've never had a problem with the ice cream never getting cold enough. The motor is very quiet so you can run the machine during dinner or when you have company. Clean up is a snap. There are no weird parts or super delicate pieces to worry about.

I've made ice cream several times. I've enjoyed recipes in the Williams Sonoma ice cream book, "How to Cook Everything" by Bittman and Gourmet's cookbook. One note: I have had to toss out a few attempts at making custard-style ice cream using eggs. I just needed to get the hang of it. I'm glad I hung in there until I got the recipe right because it's worth the effort!

This is also my first automatic ice cream freezer, and I am glad I chose this one. You do need to follow the directions and pre-freeze the container. In fact, after using, I immediately wash the freezer bowl, dry it well, and stick it back in the freezer so it is ready to go when I want to use it. I store any leftover ice cream in another container. That is, if I am lucky enough to have leftovers!

The unit is a snap to put together, use, and wash.It is reasonably quiet to use as well.

I found tons of recipes on the internet. So far, our favorite has been orange sherbet. Yes, it is cheaper to buy commericial and you do need to keep ingredients on hand and chilled, but well worth the effort!

The title says it in a nutshell. The poor design of this product deserves 0 stars, but if you don't mind doing some slap-dash repairs it will make some good homemade frozen treats. The details:
If you look at the picture of the machine, you will see a clear plastic top which fits on to the white plastic piece below it. There are 4 small round pegs on the inside of the top which slide down the same number of slots in the white plastic piece below it. At the bottom of the slots you can then turn the top to either side where it will slide into a semi-circular recess. And therein lies the problem--while a circle will easily slide into a semi-circle, there is nothing to lock it into place. Once the motor starts running, there is more than sufficient vibration to jiggle the lid out and up. This will result in the paddle no longer scraping against the bottom of the frozen bowl as it turns and you are left with a non-creamy solid block at the bottom of the bowl when you are done.
I called Krups support line about this issue. After 20 minutes on hold waiting for someone to pick up, and another 5 minutes on hold after I explained the issue for the agent to track down the machine so he could see for himself, I was told "If it makes you feel any better, the previous model's lid just sat on top with nothing to hold it down at all." Which tells me the designers were aware of the issue but couldn't come up with a very good idea to solve it, and didn't do sufficient testing to determine whether the problem had been solved. As I said, the designers deserve 0 stars on this one. While the wait for support was longer than a customer should have to put up with, the guy I talked to certainly did all he could do under the circumstances.

Krups brand has a good reputation, but my experience with their automatic ice cream maker has raised some concerns, "buyer beware." I read all 17 reviews, and only three ranked less than 5 stars. I found JM's two star review dated Aug 3,07 particularly useful because I encountered similar but not identical issues.

I made the coffe gelato recipe from the, "Dessert Bible," by Christopher Kimball, editor of Cooks Illustrated. Krup's instruction says to put the freezer bowl with the finished product back in the freezer overnight. When I did, the gelato became a frozen-solid not suitable for scooping out. My suggestion would be to remove the finished product to a separate container before placing it into the freezer for "final curing." As the mixing finished, I removed the lid and paddle and noticed that the sides and bottom of the bowl was not scraped cleanly during the "churning" to incorporate all of the mix.

Last week, for my second attempt, I tried Ginger Ice Cream, a recipe from the Little Washington Inn cookbook. After making the cream mixture I placed it in the refrigerator to cool. The next morning I began to assemble the Krup's ice cream maker and, as much as I tried, I was unable to get the lid to attach to the freezer bowl.

Customer Service at Krups is closed on weekends, so on Monday, I called them and described the problem about my difficulty in securing the lid. The lid assembly has the motor attached from the top and the paddle attached from the bottom. Customer Service's analysis came back as a "defective freezer bowl---warped." I described my problem to them as I could not get the lid assembly unit to fit into the "lock" recesses of the upper ring (there are four such recesses that secure the lid to the freezer bowl.

I've made at least 6 different types of ice cream, sorbet and frozen yogurt since receiving this as a gift. Even though I've followed the directions carefully, chilled both the bowl and the mix as directed, the consistency of the end product tends to be a bit granular. I still haven't produced an ice cream with the smoothness that I was able to get from my old 1970s era Salton-put-it-in-the-freezer-while-it-mixes ice cream maker. I'll keep trying, but I'm disappointed. Plus, other than the metal lining for the freezer bowl, all the other pieces are plastic, so I have to wonder how long this thing will last.
