For a century and a half, since a woman in New York invented the hand-crank freezer, making ice cream has been an American family value. Mom blended the ice cream mixture; Dad filled the maker's wooden tub with ice and rock salt to achieve the below-freezing temperature needed to produce smooth confections; kids clamored to turn the crank; and everyone happily consumed big bowls of ice cream as a reward. This family-bonding activity remains as vibrant today as it was through a century-and-a-half of "progress." With various ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sherbet recipes included, this old-fashioned White Mountain ice cream maker maintains the tradition. Only the use of modern stainless steel for the freezer can and dasher distinguishes this rugged maker from the one earlier generations enjoyed. And years from now it will still be used, knitting together a family's history. --Fred Brack

It's true. I went ahead and made my purchase for $150.00 with high hopes for this ice cream maker. I cleaned all the parts except for the hand crank itself when I first got it, and went ahead and attempted to make a batch of vanilla ice cream. The batch ended up getting pitched because I had noticed a black powder forming on the cannister lid and when I opened it, I discovered that the powder had gone into the ice cream. I took apart the entire hand crank to clean out the black powder and dried it well. My husband even fashioned a balloon contraption to cover the gap in the lid so nothing could go into the ice cream, but on my second batch it happened again and despite our efforts, the ice cream ended up being contaminated with the metal powder again.
The hand crank parts are made of cast iron, and it has a bumpy texture and when it is cranked, and the gears turn they rub against each other causing the bumps on the metal to be scraped off into a fine powder, which then travels down the dasher into the cream. Also, after using it the first time I cleaned and dried all the parts as instructed, but when I went to assemble it for the second batch, I noticed that the dasher itself had rust spots already.
I don't know why this company manufactures this product with such sensitive and impractical materials. I called the manufacturing co. and talked to customer service, and while they were very polite and wanting to make the situation better, their response to me was that they acknowledge this problem only happening with a very old machine or one that has been used too much....clearly this product isn't tested for quality assurance.
Beware if you own or are thinking of owning this product! You may not have noticed any metal powder/filings in your ice cream, but wipe your finger around the lid of the cannister next time and inside the hand crank part to see if it comes out black. I am returning this machine for a refund and will look elsewhere for a hand crank machine.
Also make sure you have the "ice cream maker salt", yup there's a large crystal salt out there made just for us ice cream crankers, and have 20# of ice on hand. We used every cube.
I have lower back issues so I had it to do over I would by an electric model as I have to draft a cranker to make a batch.
To the white Mountain Company: Excellent improvement on a winner of 125 years.
