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 have so many KitchenAid items and we decided to get something fun - this is so easy and everyone should own one!

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Elyse I've been happy with this attachment
Reading all the blue goo posts has got be a little spooked, though. I've had my ice cream maker attachment for about a year, and have enjoyed using it. After I use the frozen bowl to make ice cream, I let it sit on the kitchen counter on a towel to fully defrost before cleaning it with cold water and soap. I've never used warm water on it - cooling and heating that liquid inside just didn't seem like a good idea. I've given it four stars because it makes ice cream, but doesn't mix absolutely fabulously (I always add chocolate chips, etc., with a rubber spatula by hand), but I think that's the nature of a frozen bowl mixer. But it's definitely a solid "good" and fun to use.

Yummy homemade ice cream. Once you get used to the attachment then you can easily whip up a batch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Heimmm15 Hmmm.....
I just got this for Christmas....tried making my first batch. Canister was frozen for 24 hours and I made my ice cream....after 45 minutes, it's still soup. My instruction book is missing pages, perhaps it's missing helpful tips on a successful batch. Mix till desired consistency isn't very specific. My husband will be returning as this didn't work and my instruction book was incomplete. How frustrating!!

Got this as a gift last Christmas along with my mixer. Got it out this Christmas while my kids were home to make ice cream. The top part will not push the paddle for longer then a couple minutes then it won't work. Started over 3x and made a huge mess but could not get it to work. I think I have used this 5 other times and had no problems. Poor design
