Why You Need an Ice Cream Maker

I’m sure I’m not alone when I fanaticize about having all the time in the world to create and cook anything and everything that I want… and making ice cream varieties is always at the top of my list!  Somewhere deep inside me is a little Ben & Jerry dying to get out. That’s why I was over the moon when Pampered Chef debuted it’s Ice Cream Maker a few years ago!  I keep mine right in the back of our stand-up freezer so it’s ready and waiting for me when I have the craving for something cold and delicious.

This compact Ice Cream Maker lets you create your favorite frozen treats any time you want. Use fresh, natural ingredients to mix up smooth, custom-flavored ice cream, custard, frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet, and even frozen drinks. You’ll taste the quality—homemade ice cream is smoother, richer, creamier, and less expensive than store-bought. Just push a button to set the timer, add your ingredients, and you’ll have a frozen treat in 45 minutes or less—you can even peek through the clear lid to see it come together! Cover the bowl with the stretchy silicone lid to store it for later.

Here are the details:

  • Includes a bowl, electric lid with paddle, and stretch-fit lid.
  • Compact design takes up less space so it’s easy to use and store.
  • Set the timer for 5 to 40 minutes.
  • Makes up to 1 quart of ice cream—or eight ½-cup servings.
  • Includes a Basic Vanilla Ice Cream recipe.
  • This product is built to United States electrical standards, and is intended for use in the United States and Canada only.
  • One-year guarantee.

Here are some tips:

  • Keep it frozen at all times – this week keep it ready to go when you are and properly frozen for use
  • Freeze it for a minimum of 24 hours before you plan to make ice cream
  • Keep it in the back or bottom of a freezer.  If you have a side-by-side freezer, keep it in the back/bottom.  Never at the top or near the front or on a door.
  • Check your freezer temperature to be certain that it’s at 0˚F.  So many I know have their freezers set around 15-20˚F and your freezer will need to be at ZERO to freeze this properly.
  • Chill your recipe in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before pouring into the Ice Cream Maker.  If you’re using a cooked recipe, chill it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before pouring into the Ice Cream Maker.  Trust me on this one… it will save you a TON of headaches!
  • You can use the Ice Cream Spade, Ice Cream Dipper and Freezer Storage Containers for your new creations!
