Product Description

Product Description

Treat your family to rich homemade ice cream with this handcrank 6qt. machine carefully constructed of the finest metals and woods Heavyduty hand crank; freezer tub is designed of select Maine pine and bound by strong galvanized hoops Exclusive Triple Motion Dasher System properly mixes and beats contents for optimal circulation and ice cream thats extraordinarily rich and creamy Tongueandgroove bucket is handcrafted finished with 3 coats of sealer stain and lacquer for beauty and durability


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

From the Manufacturer

Enjoy a sweet treat! Bring back memories and create new ones by cranking the old-fashioned way.

At a Glance

  • New England white pine bucket
  • Corrosion-resistant, cast-iron, triple-action dasher
  • Three-gear drive hand-cranked system
  • Steel inner bucket
  • Makes 6 quarts of ice cream in 30 to 45 minutes
  • 5-year limited warranty
  • Recipes included


  1. Bucket: The wood bucket is crafted of select pine from New England and bound with strong galvanized hoops and electroplated fittings to ensure lasting stability.
  2. Canister: The tall canister design allows the ice cream to come in close contact with the ice and rock salt making it freeze faster. Our canister is manufactured of heavy-duty stainless steel that will provide years of ice cream making service.
  3. Dasher: The patented dasher system is constructed of heavy-duty cast iron and is electroplated for lasting durability. It will never warp out of shape like plastic dashers are prone to do. And the beech wood blades are self-adjusting to ensure uniform scraping of the ice cream mixture on the canisters interior sidewall.




The White Mountain Experience


The White Mountain Experience started in the 1850s.
Founded in 1853, we’ve always been about making good times happen right at home with ice cream you make yourself. The experience starts with the discussion--often the kids get their pick--of what flavor ice cream your family wants to make. Vanilla with bittersweet chocolate chips or maybe peach made with orchard fresh peaches. Every delicious choice is limited only by your imagination. Just set up your White Mountain ice cream maker with ice and rock salt, and let the fun begin. Whether you’re cooling off a hot summer picnic or warming up a homebound winter weekend, the experience is one you can’t put a price on.

Our secret is the triple-motion dasher.
At the heart of the White Mountain ice cream maker is a uniquely designed, twin-blade "dasher." The outer canister turns clockwise and the blades turn both clockwise and counter clockwise. That triple-motion action continuously folds the ingredient mixture from the outer walls back onto itself creating the smoothest and creamiest down-home ice cream ever made.

Don't let the high price on this ice cream freezer fool you into thinking you're getting something that's high quality. We ordered one in late November, anticipating lots of fun "cranking" together at family get-togethers over the holidays. The "trial run" in early December went fine. But the second time we got the freezer out of the box -- on Christmas evening -- we saw that metal filings had shifted out of the crank mechanism. Then, as we attempted to make just our second batch of ice cream, the crank handle broke. (The crank mechanism seems to be poorly made, which overly stresses the crank handle.) Not what we expected from a $159 ice cream freezer.

Two years ago, I purchased this hand-crank ice cream freezer for $130 on the web. My wife and I loved the idea of kids taking turns cranking the handle.

But the very first time we made ice cream, we found that the crank would jam incessantly. If I pressed in on the handle in a certain way while cranking, the jamming was reduced a bit, but this was a nuisance. If one did not apply force in just the right way, the thing would jam again. (So much for friends and kids enjoying taking turns at the crank!)

The second time we made ice cream, the jamming was even worse, and we noticed that metal filings were dropping down from the gear mechanism and were making their way into the ice cream.

When I took the gear mechanism (the "crank assembly frame") apart, I discovered the problem: The gears inside are designed and manufactured badly. The gears are not held in place, but rather have about 1/8" play. That is a lot of play. When the gears drift apart, they jam. The gears in our unit were badly gouged after only two uses! (The gears seem to be stamped from low-grade powdered metal.) The entire problem could have been avoided in the manufacturing by simply using a plastic spacer on the shaft that holds one of the gears, but this was not done.

When I called about warranty service, I was told that a replacement gear mechanism would be shipped to me. That never happened. The next time I called, some months later, I was told that there was no record of my earlier call. Again, I was told that a replacement gear mechanism would be shipped to me. About a week later, a replacement handle arrived, not a gear mechanism.

If you are looking for an old fashioned hand crack ice cream maker that uses salt and ice - this is the only choice I have been able to find. Unfortunately, I was only able to make ice cream about 5 times before I noticed the gears were stripping. I then took a closer look at the hand crank system - and it is made very cheaply. Additionally, even though I have been diligent about rinsing out the bucket when I am done, it is still rusting on the inside. This is presumedly from the salt water needed to freeze the ice cream. Still, since I very much like hand cranking, I am now looking for a replacement piece for the hand crank system and hoping it will last more than a season.
The good news is that you can still buy an old fashioned ice cream maker. The bad news is that no one has come out with one that is made to last.
My suggestion is to look at garage sales for one built years ago - when they were built to last generations. If you don't find one, then this will do.

Update 2010: I never found a way to replace the handle so we now have a very expensive wooden bucket. Since more recent reviews say that the gears are still stripping, I would stay away from this product.

When I asked for an ice cream freezer as a gift, my husband suggested a modern style, but I assured him I wanted a "good, old-fashioned" hand-crank style. I wanted the quality of century-old manufacturing that uses elbow grease instead of electronics--that can be difficult or impossible to repair--and I also wanted the nostalgic satisfaction of working for my treat.

The quality of this product is shameful; there is no part of it that is not as cheaply produced as it possibly can be. The dyes in the wood bucket leak out; the rings around the bucket began rusting after the first use; the bucket leaks; grease and particles from the crank mechanism collect at the top of the paddle; the wood on the paddles are "hairy" with splinters; the paddle scrapes the sides of the canister, introducing particles into the ice cream (can be adjusted, but didn't realize it was mis-adjusted until the damage was already done); the metal parts of the paddle structure either rust or corrode, depending on the metal; the entire crank mechanism rusts excessively, regardless of how carefully we store it, wiped down with vegetable oil; and finally, the worst of all, the mechanism doesn't work properly. Every 3d or 4th turn of the handle, it seizes up and and has to be turned backwards to loosen it. That is UNBELIEVABLY frustrating.

A logical question would be whether we contributed to these problems with poor care, but all parts were washed and dried by hand, metal parts were put in a low-temp. oven to ensure dryness before storing, and we followed all the directions explicitly. No amount of care or maintenance could save this piece of, well, trash (literally, since after 2 years of struggling with it, I'm throwing it out today).
