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.Read more ›
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.
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).Read more ›
