I have made frozen custard, ice cream, gelato, sorbet, and sherbet in this and it all turned out spectacularly! Not sure what recipe the others who had poor results are using, but there may be some minor differences that kept theirs from turning out. I suggest using a recipe tuned for this type of mixer, perhaps from Lebovitz's book "Perfect Scoop" or the Americas Test kitchen recipes, they both use the Cuisinart version of this machine. I also agree with the other reviewer, sometimes a small touch of alcohol in the Sorbet can have good effects, even in ice cream too - both of the recipe sources I mentioned will back this up too.
Basically, make your custard, your gelato or your sorbet base, cool it down in the fridge (I even use the freezer sometimes to save time) and then pour it into the bowl. As another reviewer mentioned, keep the outside of the metal bowl clean and dry or it will stick to the machine like Flick's tongue to the flagpole in "A Christmas Story.".... "...but the Bell rang...."
My batches have been averaging about 30-45 minutes from fridge to soft frozen. I then pack it into a container and freeze for a few hours before serving. I have been manually stopping the machine about every 10-15 minutes and using a silicon spatula to scrape the sides a little, it does develop a frozen film. My temp gauge goes down to -10 to -20 in just a few minutes.
Its a machine, so expect a little noise from it, but I have found that it is bearable to continue working in the same space and still carry a conversation. Its about the same noise as a kitchenaid stand mixer on slow speed.
I like the small batch size, it encourages making ultra rich and flavorful ice creams, without thinking that you are going to have to eat a whole gallon of it. Also, the speed and convenience of it encourage making two flavors where before I would only make one. The churning time of the first batch is about the time it takes to make another custard and put it in the freezer to chill. If I do want to make a gallon, I still have my big electric tub with ice and salt. Really... 1.5 qt is a lot of ice cream, its THREE Haggen Das or Ben and Jerry pint size containers. (BTW - get the Sweet Bliss white paper containers - fill three pints, give one or two away, you can draw pictures on them etc... your friends will love you.)
Cleanup is easy, the bowl, the paddle, the lid all hand wash quickly. After the machine warms up a bit, I just wipe out the place where the bowl sits, there is always a little frost there.
PRO: Ease of use! Excellent/professional results with the right recipes. Small batch size. Easy Cleanup.
CON: Expensive. Large heavy appliance takes up storage area, hard to lift to upper cabinet shelf. worst of all... you will eat more ice cream!
I have used this machine for over 3 months now and have made more batches of ice cream than I can count. It continues to perform flawlessly. I love, love this machine. I have not bought store ice cream since I got the machine and likely will never buy it again. This is a great buy and I recommend it fully!
I purchased this ice cream maker after becoming frustrated with the whole freezer bowl process. I did a little research and it was quickly evident that I could not (would not) pay hundreds of dollars for a machine that I would use weekly at most. I stumbled upon this Whynter machine and for the price (Amazon also had a coupon for it) thought it was a fair compromise. I just got the machine, but have had time to test it. I made three consequtive batches of ice cream...coffee, coconut, and strawberry frozen yogurt. Two of the mixes were chilled while one was room temperature. The machine churned out beautiful firmly set ice cream in less than an hour for each. The cooled mixes took about 40 minutes and the room temp mix took about 50 minutes. They were all awesome! This machine is very simple to use. It has only 3 buttons...power, start/stop, and timer. You simply fill the pull out bowl with your mix, insert the dasher, twist on the lid, push power, set timer (default is 60 min; consecutive presses lower the timer by 10 min increments), and press start. The machine will beep for several seconds when the time ends, or, if your ice cream becomes so thick that the dasher cannot turn, the machine will stop mixing. There is also a 'stay cool' function that lasts for an hour following the timer. The machine is no louder than any other ice cream maker and I did not find it bothersome. Some have complained about the capacity, but 1.5 qts seems to be a good amount...that's 8 .5C servings, and given the richness of homemade ice cream and its reduced shelf life, this seems a reasonable amount. In addition, since it is so easy to make ice cream with your Whynter machine, you will want to experiment with a variety of flavors. The stainless steel color works well with modern kitchens. It's about 27 lbs and takes up the same amount of space as a 2lb breadmaker. I cannot speak to longevity but will update this post in a few months. I love this ice cream maker and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.
