Customer Review

on December 5, 2007
I LOVE IT. I bought two on special..After 2 months..one did have a problem with the spin head..but I called and they sent another one out immediately..It's been over a year and both are fantastic. The base is built well and sturdy. Doesn't feel cheap except for the plastic cups and blender. But you know what..I find a use for it almost every day..and if the cups get beat up...probably best they are plastic....it really does everything!!
I make my own butter, grind coffee beans, make smoothies...chop a lot of stuff...and make and ice cream.
-----------------------------------------------
For an individual cup of ice cream:

Fill the large cup with 2/3 heavy cream. Blend until like whipped cream.

Remove chopper and then add:

3 heavy spoonfuls of sweetened condensed milk.
1 table spoon vanilla extract and
1 teaspoon or more of an alcohol of choice. (keeps milk from overhardening)
and any other flavors or additions at this point.

Put lid back on blend for about 5-10 seconds..take off and shake ingredients for a few seconds and reblend for another 10 seconds (just make sure it's mixed well). Freeze for about an hour! If it's too hard try adding a bit more of the Added ingredients next time.
----------------------------------------------
For your favorite compote spread/topping..I like cranberries. The result of this recipe removes the tartness of them and it tastes more like strawberries when done!!!

I blend 2/3 cup of cranberries with a splash of water (maybe 1/5 cup of water) Strain liquid into cup.

(Once the juice is in the cup..I add some other juice with the cranberry juice and just drink it while I finish making the compote.)

Press the pulp left on the strainer to get as much water out as you can. Put pulp in a small boiler on low heat...add a little water, sugar to taste, and anything else you may like such as vanilla extract or vanilla flavoring or a dash of alcohol of choice (keeps better longer). Keep stirring while boiling till you get the thickness you want.

Cool and use as bread spread OR ice cream topping. You can use any fruit. Keeps a long time in a well cold fridge.
