I like to make my ice cream with 100% cream--no milk or juice--plus honey or dehydrated cane juice, vanilla, chocolate, egg yolk, whatever. Hand-crank ice cream makers caused a film of frozen cream to build up along the sides of the basin, making turning the crank impossible. Not applicable to the Midas. For my recipe and tropical climate, it takes 30 minutes in the Midas for the proper results with one stir-break at the 15 minute mark. I always use top-notch ingredients (everything organic including cultured-raw organic cream) such that I don't blame my full-sized German Shepherd for wanting to lick the bowl clean, and he deserves it. Fortunately, given that the Midas is stainless steel, there is no damage from my dog's rough treatment, unlike my other, retired, aluminum coated machine. I took the Midas in my suitcase to my tropical vacation home. It didn't take much room. No awkward cranks or flimsy plastic lids to pack. Like all modern ice cream makers, it must be well-frozen before use, as per the manufacturer's directions.

I just got a Midas ice cream maker, and I'd like to ditto what all the other reviewers have said--it's attractive, quiet, convenient, and really well made. I really like that you can store your ice cream, granita, or whatever in the same container you made it in.

And on top of all its other stellar qualities, it's an absolute party monster: It can be used to make frozen margies (yes!!) or serve as a champagne chiller.

I've never made ice cream before in my life, but it can't get any easier with this ice cream maker. First off, it's a very durable product. It feels very solid and, with proper care, should essentially last for decades. What's great is that there's no grinding needed, no motors, and no salt necessary. It's extremely easy to clean by hand because nothing sticks for long to the stainless steel, yet it is also dishwasher-compatible.

The maker comes with an instruction booklet and a decent amount of starter recipes. The implication is that 15 minutes will get you your first batch of ice cream although I've found that 20 minutes is a better way to guarantee a satisfying result. Also, it's meant to remain chilled enough to make a second batch. If you attempt this, I recommend making the stronger flavor for the second batch, or making the exact same flavor. Otherwise, you may end up cleaning the maker between the two batches and the maker will warm up a bit from the cleaning. In any case, plan on the second batch to take closer to 20 minutes.

The maker allows you to simply lift the lid and stir at the 15-minute mark or whenever you need to. Additions to your ice cream should be made towards the end when you have a creamy (rather than liquid) product. Otherwise, adding in nuts or chocolate chips early on means that they will simply settle to the bottom and not get mixed in. A really firm spatula is often enough to scrape the sides, but sometimes I use a large spoon. When the maker is not in use, I store it in my freezer chest so that it is always ready whenever I get a craving for ice cream. One other tip is to chill the mixture before adding it to the ice cream maker.

The reviews were all so glowing, I was excited when mine arrived, and the directions were so triflingly easy! But then, after 3 hours of stirring every fifteen minutes, it was still soggy goo. I finally abandoned it overnight, and woke up to rock hard frozen paste. I'll try some sorbets and ices, but for a first attempt at simple coffee ice cream,following instructions and included recipe to the letter, the result was a terrible disappointment.
