Unlike “ice cream in a bag” recipes, using an electric ice cream maker takes all the elbow grease out of producing homemade ice cream. Making ice cream at home without a machine can take up to 15 minutes of shaking, which can leave you tired (with very cold hands). Although it is fun for kids to make ice cream this way, the result can generally be a bit soupy as it’s hard to get your ice cream to set up correctly.


An electric ice cream maker is a simple solution that will result in perfect homemade ice cream every single time while giving kids the chance to be creative and hands-on in the kitchen. They will love using the hand-crank to add in spoonfuls of candies or nuts and see the ice and salt work their magic.

Ice cream makers also have other creative uses. You can use them as wine chillers or to re-freeze smoothies or other drinks that become watery. They can also be used to create sorbets, slushies, freezes and other cold drinks. Frosé, anyone?
