the pics on the box show a very creamy soft serve (I know, you shouldn't believe what a box or ad shows anyway since it's usually photoshopped and styled). The end product is extremely icy in texture like a sorbet, not at all what soft serve is. Mine didn't even dispense because the bottom of the freezer bowl was too cold and froze the cream almost immediately on contact, so the dispenser hole was clogged. The dispenser hole is way too small to dispense easily it seems. I did use the receipe for a low fat ice cream included in the booklet. It used 2% milk and half&half instead of whole milk and heavy cream. I also substituted Splenda for sugar. So I dunno if this altered the freezing ability too much (too much water in low fat milk perhaps). I'll be trying the full fat version to compare. I guess if we cared about the fat content we wouldn't be eating ice cream in the first place right? Also if you use a fruit puree with seeds, make sure you strain it since that can also clog the dispenser. I recommend just using juice and not puree in the machine, it sinks to the bottom of the mixer bowl and clogs it.

Buy some of that Junket ice cream mix, follow the instructions, put it in your Ice-45 and wait, not too long you will have soft serve as good or better than the Dairy Queen. Not too sweet, just right. And the great thing is, you can do it twice with the bowl that they give you, the darn thing stays that cold. The negatives, it needs a bit more capacity, and don't use their recipes unless you really like it sweet. We love it!!
