Incredibly easy to use, you can create delicious ice cream, rich creamy gelato and sorbet all in the comfort of your own home. Designed with an upright, small footprint profile, this space efficient ice cream maker fits easily on any countertop. The unit can be operated in three convenient modes: Ice Cream mode, Cooling only mode and Mixing only mode.

It features a sleek stainless steel exterior and soft touch LCD control panel that will accent any kitchen counter. Upon completion of the cycle, the Whynter ICM-201SB prevents the mixture from melting and a Motor Protection function that stops the motor from churning to prevent overheating or damage to the motor when the mixture becomes solid.

Not only is it so much easier, it also tastes a whole lot better.

UPDATE: We received a new replacement for our icecream maker that I reviewed above. The only reason from mechanging it to a 5 star rating is that the jury for me is still out on this product for me. What was really difficult was I sent the unit back with out the stainless steel mixing bowl and all the accessories (at their request) and the UPS shipping was $93.00 which was hard to swallow but what made it a little more pallitable was they sent a new unit as stated with a new stainless bowl ($70.00) to buy another one to make more than one batch at a time. There customer service was top notch as I spoke with them on the phone and through email. Like I said in my first review, I hope that it was a coincedence that it quit working....
I unpacked it and let it sit a few days upright on the countertop before using it (I think they recommend at least 2 hours sitting upright). I like the footprint, countertop space is usually a premium and I'd rather have something that is taller than wider. The upper cabinets are about 18" above the countertop, you could carefully remove the bowl with this underneath the cabinet but it'd be tight so best to pull it out first. Plus you do want to keep an eye on it while it's mixing/freezing to make sure everything is ok.
We've used it 3 times now and each time it worked good. First time put too much 'stuff' in the bowl and it overflowed and made a mess. I'd say 5 cups of stuff max (liquids and add-in's, I got carried away adding chocolate chips and cookie bits). Luckily it wasn't too hard to cleanup, it's sealed well and rounded edges so not many nooks and crannies for things to get into. This last time the churn blade somehow got pushed off the motor spindle so it wasn't spinning anymore and the mixture started freezing solid on the inside edge of the bowl, had to turn it off and remove the bowl to let it thaw a bit so I could break it loose in order to resume it.
Still a lot more experimenting to do, but so far my impressions are that for add-ins like chocolate chips or fruits it's probably best if they are small in size otherwise they tend to bunch up on the churn blade. I'm thinking that running fruits through the blender first so they can get more evenly mixed would be a good idea too.
The button labeling on mine is different than the picture here, the manual has it correct though.
If you like vanilla a good starting base is one 14 oz can of sweet condensed milk, 3 cups of either heavy or whipping cream and/or whole milk, and 2 tsp vanilla. Using all cream makes it very rich and it didn't freeze much within 1 hour (froze once I put it in the freezer though), last time I did 1 cup whipping cream and 2 cups whole milk and it came out good and it was done in about 40 min. My wife made frozen yogurt using some yogurt and other goodies she had and it was came out good too.
You can adjust the time on the fly using the timer button, when I noticed it was slowing down on the mixing I cut the time down. Or you can simply pause it and it will keep the compressor running to keep it cool while you get ready to remove it from the bowl. No need to precool the unit although you could if you wanted (start it and then pause), that would probably cut down the time it takes for the mixture to freeze. But you wouldn't want to take too long adding things in as they may freeze too fast and it won't be able to mix them.
Update: It's still working great! It's winter now of course so not used as much, but we were making all sorts of goodies with it till now. I definitely recommend blending fruits first, mixes them evenly. Started experimenting more with frozen yogurt and even the mistakes (I think too much water, it turns out more solid) come out yummy.
The problem with the churn blade coming off during mixing was us not being careful about putting the bowl in. There are slots in the housing for where the handle comes through the bowl, make sure to line that up. It's easy to forget as it still works even if you don't line it up, but the churn blade will come off eventually.
I have been making ice cream since 1985. It started out just doing it for holidays. My first was a hand crank model in a wooden barrel. Then an identical one but an electric crank but the motor wore out in a few years of 6 -10 batches a year. I then got an electric 6 quart which was great for 6 or so batches then the motor started screaming at me. The company quickly did a warranty replacement. Now after about 12 batches and no warranty the drive gears are failing. Near the end of the cycle extreme pressure needs to be placed on top of the motor or it skips.
The problem with all the ice cream makers is they are loud. I have to run them in the laundry sink in the garage. Plus they are messy and have to be tended too.
The Whynter 2.1 quart upright is easier and automatic. I add my pre mixed liquid into the bowl and push a button. It has a pre set option for one hour which works out perfectly so far. It comes out soft serve which is the same as every other maker has done for me. Any firmer it would not squeeze through the mixing paddle but just spin around in a clump. There is also a timer so you can increase or decrease the freezing time. I have yet to use that setting at this time. It is quieter than all my other ones. I have it running on my dinner table in my RV next to the tv and I still can hear the tv just fine. At home on the kitchen counter I almost have to mute the tv in the living room to hear it. It's that quiet. It is it's own freezer. No mess with ice and salt. If you are not around when it finishes the freezer part of unit starts up and keeps it ready to eat for 2 hours
