Nice Product, too bad the motor is junk!7/11/2011
I bought this ice cream maker in April & it was a great deal from Buy.com. Now I know why. First time I used it in July, the motor started making this horrible squealing noise. It was so bad that I had to unplug it so that it would stop. Did some research on different websites, including White Mountain. This motor had gotten horrible reviews with most people complaining about the motor not working or just plain siezing while churning the ice cream. Seems it is not large enough to handle the job. Since the product is out of the 45 day return policy with Buy.com, I have to contact White Mtn directly. Let's see what happens. Do your research on other websites before purchasing this product!
The metal paddle shows small amounts of surface rust after only one use. I love the quality of this ice cream maker but how can a key element like the paddle rust? I requested a replacement paddle and am hopeful that this won't happen again.
Best Ice Cream Maker Ever9/20/2010
White Mountain Ice Cream Makers are by far the best ice cream makers around. They are nice to look at, commercial quality and makes great ice cream! The specially patented dasher mixes the ice cream better than normal dashers. The motor is very heavy duty and spins faster than any other I've seen. The heavy stainless mix container holds cold better than other light weight aluminum containers thus making the ice cream set up faster.I personally did not think it was worth the money, but now that I have used it I have changed my mind! It's worth the extra $$!

Great construction. Fast Shipping. More expensive but definitely worth the extra. Made a great batch of ice cream for Labor Day!
Best of Ice Cream Machines7/31/2009
We host an ice cream social each year making four or five different types of ice cream. Having worked with several different ice cream machines, I quickly learned to appreciate this one, so much so I even bought a second. It is more expensive than a lot of others, but you can tell a definite difference in the power of the motor, as well as, the quality of the overall product.
Great Ice cream maker8/6/2008
We were surprised at how quickly it shipped and the ease of use in the electric model. Nothing beats home made ice cream. My sister has a cheaper maker and smaller and the consistency just isn't the same. It is worth spending to get one that will last. Plus with the 6 quart size it is big enough to make with company or freeze for later.

The ice cream freezer is just what we wanted. Buy.com got it to us real quick. The freezer freezes like it is suppose to not like the plastic freezers you buy at the stores now those don't freeze like the rival blue mountain freezer
