by fromFun Family Gadget This is a great ice cream maker. It comes with a booklet for some recipes, or you can go online and get others. You just need to look for homemade ice cream recipes. You put your sugar, cream, and flavorings in one end, and rocksalt and ice/snow in the other. 20-30mins later you have a modest amount of ice cream for the family. It is a great after dinner activity for the kids, and they never get tired of mixing the ball. Clean up is easy. Bottom line: fun and tasty

by fromVery tasty ice cream Probably some of the best ice cream we have tasted considering we made it ourselves. Takes a little longer than expected and not designed to kick or throw around like you would expect. Overall, still makes great ice cream!

by fromnice use this at school w/ the kids (6-9 yr. olds). works as a nice reward for hard work and they love getting something they made themselves. a tad bit messy, but probably because the kids are in charge of doing things. very nice product.

by fromIce Cream Maker This product is a great novely. The ice cream has been delicious thus far. The shaking does take quite a bit of time. We did not want to roll the ball because we didn't want it to get dirty or have the lids pop open. The only thing this product is missing is some sort of tool to scrape the ice cream off the sides. The instructions recommend a wooden spoon or a spatula, but neither of these worked very well. A metal spoon worked great, but scratched the lining off the inside of the ice cream compartment. A metal chopstick worked even better, but still scratched the tube. This size made more than enough ice cream for two people. I can't wait to use this product with my campers this summer - hopefully they'll even do the hardwork for me.
