Rated 1 out of 5 by Tiger Fan Blue Liquid Problem Strikes Again!
I'm unfortunately joining the ranks of those who are experiencing blue liquid leaks from this unit. I found a ring of blue liquid on the surface of the shelf where I had stored it (a portion of the area is permanently stained now) from around the seam ring on the bottom of the unit, and on one of the protruding parts on the upper side, as well. There are no cracks visible. This is a frustrating development for sure. Of course, my unit is several years out of the warranty period, but, frankly, I expected it to last many more years, especially as I have been careful to treat it per instructions in the manual, and also because it is a product from a company known for durability and quality. It has produced many batches of ice cream, which my family looks forward to on special occasions. It is difficult to arrive at a rating when the unit becomes unexpectedly defective with what now appears to be a common problem. Otherwise, it made pretty good ice cream, although at times it seemed to be slow to freeze the mixture.

Very sad because this made awesome ice cream. After about 5 uses since we received this as a wedding present, it is leaking the blue fluid and now I have to clean my entire freezer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MP Great while it lasted....
I too experienced the 'blue goo' - so disappointed! I used this only a couple times and hand washed it and stored it very carefully. Overtime something must have happened because one day I opened the cupboard and the maker had cracked and the blue goo leaked EVERYWHERE - I now have a permanent blue stain in my cupboard. The bowl now has a full crack around it and has split horizontally. Still need to try and talk to customer service about this - they need to fix this because it's clearly a product glitch not user error! Very sad it only lasted a few times for the price and I expected a high quality product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mamma G Blue Goo! So I'm not the o my one...
Used twice received as a Christmas gift, from kids, started leaking from side, no visible cracks anywhere, don't want to throw away if can get corrected but is past warranty, so out it goes. Would not recommend. Which is to bad for it worked but seems to be a ongoing design flaw.I love Kictchen Aide Product's have many accessories for my mixer, just cannot recommend this one, sorry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by juljohnston Can you believe it leaks? ....
Of course you can believe it; it's why you're here reading the reviews. You're not alone, my fellow Blue Leak of Death victims. Mine is under a year old, had been used about 10 times, and leaks enough to be a nuisance. I am afraid to use it now because I'm almost certain that being frozen one more time will crack it for good. Other than that, I love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Amy Loved the product, but leaks blue liquid
I received this as a wedding gift last year and was very excited to try it out. I made ice cream for a few holiday parties and it was very easy to use. This summer I pulled it out of the cabinet and it was leaking blue liquid from the side. Very disappointed as it has only been used a few times and is expensive to replace.

I loved this ice cream bowl until it began to leak.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sherry Another Leaking Unit
Obviously a design or manufacturing flaw. My unit has only been used 4-6 times and is leaking blue goo as well. Customer service offered a discount on a new or refurbished one. I went with the refurbished one. Came with a 6 month warranty. We will see if the problems continue.
