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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by A. Turner Leaking blue liquid
I have only had my ice cream attachment for just over a year (I got it for Christmas last year). I haven't used it over but I noticed when I tried to use it this weekend there was blue liquid at the base and all over my freezer. I am surprised and dissappointed because I love Kitchenaid products and have never had a problem with them before.

This ice cream maker worked well enough at first, but small droplets of blue fluid started leaking out after a couple months. Since it was only a few drops, I didn't think too much of it at the time and put the ice cream maker away in a cabinet. However, when I picked up the ice cream maker today, it was sitting in a puddle of blue fluid. As it seems that nearly half of the coolant is now gone, I doubt it will work anymore. Its disappointing that the design of the ice cream maker is so flawed, especially since I love my kitchenaid mixer and other attachments. Unfortunately for me its also well past the warranty period.

I received the ice cream maker as a Christmas gift. Since then I made ice cream twice. It took no time at all, and the ice cream was very good. I took the recipe out of the instruction manual, which was easy to follow, and the ice cream was very very rich.

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 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.

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

I received this product as a gift and was thrilled to start making homemade icecream. However, after 6 batches it started to leak blue fluid. I expect higher quality from KitchenAid.
