by pastrychefNtrainin great product!
I LOVE making ice cream instead of buying it, and this product is perfect! I've used similar products in commercial kitchens, so I know how easy it is to use! It attaches effortlessly to KitchenAid mixer. Just keep it stored in the freezer when not in use so that it's always ready!

I am sitting here getting ready for our family 4th of July celebration and was planning on surprising the family with some awesome homemade ice cream, however what I got instead was a freezer shelf full of blue goo, an ice cream base that is not freezing (due to no more cold blue goo inside of it) and then once I go to pour it out of the bowl I get blue goo in the ice cream. Needless to say, I am not a happy camper right now. I have used this item once since I have recievd it for a wedding gift 2 years ago and am now about on the verge of tears because of it. I am reading reviews from it now and am seeing that Kitcheaide does not seem to be very accomidating in exchanging this product. I am a long time faithful supporter of Kitchenaide and foodblogger/ vlogger and I can say right now that if this is not resolved in a favorable manner, my followers will not hear the end of it from me. I sure hope I am not further disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Heather Blue Goo Leaking
I have used the product only a few times and it is leaking blue goo. I am very disappointed in the quality of the product. The product functioned wonderfully before the blue liquid started coming out. It appears that this might be an issue with the product, since I have read a number of other reviews that have had the same problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Carlo M Stay away! Leaks blue liquid
My wife and I received this item as a wedding gift to be added to our collection of kitchen aid items (we have quite a few). Although this item was great at first, being able to make delicious ice cream only lasted a year as one day it started leaking blue fluid (it was all over one of our freezer shelves). We tried making ice cream anyways but it would not cool the mixture to the right temperature and ended up with a soupy cream instead. I would expect a higher quality product from KitchenAid. I would definitely suggest looking elsewhere for your ice cream making needs as the item is not worth the investment. I urge KitchenAid to solve this issue or at least extend the warranty as the leaking on our unit started a few months after the warranty expiration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mointhebend My family loves homemade ice cream!
I have had this ice cream maker bowl attachment and have thoroughly enjoyed it!! I have owned it for 6 years now and it hasn't failed me at all! I always store it in the freezer so it is ready to use when needed. If you read through the instructions thoroughly and maybe more than once, you will see how easy it is to use. You will not have firm ice cream immediately; it will need to go in the freezer for 6-8 hrs. to firm up. But the end result will be so worth it! My family truly loves the ice cream it produces!! Enjoy!!!

I received the ice cream bowl as a gift back in December 2012. I have used it a few times over the years and recently while I was unpacking it I noted the box had what I thought was water damage. Today I wanted to put it in the freezer so I could use in the next few weeks and noticed some blue liquid in the box and on the bowl. I noted that my bowl has a fine crack in the nub that fits into my bowl lift mixer. Now seeing how much liquid has seeped out over the past few months I'm not sure it will work anymore. What a waste! I would consider purchasing another one though...

Ive had my kitchenaid mixer for years but just bought the ice cream maker since I now have goats and wanted to make ice cream from my milk. I absolutely love it. Its super easy to mix ingredients with the mixer, then transfer to the ice cream maker. 30 min later delicious soft serve or freeze for later. Love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Randy Great until it leaked
We used it regularly and were very pleased with it. But apparently there is a design flaw. Just like others have noticed, eventually some seal goes bad and it leaks blue liquid. Makes a big mess. Now past warranty, it will go into the trash and not be replaced. Buy a different brand.
