Ice Cream Makers

Learn how to make ice cream

Ice cream is a great treat for kids and adults alike. What if you could make this delicious frosty treat in your own home in a cost-effective way any time you like? An ice cream maker can make this dream a reality.

How do Home Ice Cream Makers Work?

Home ice cream makers generally work by churning a liquid mixture into the creamy frozen substance we all know and love. In the past, hand-cranked ice cream makers were the only option, meaning an hour or more of backbreaking labor every time you wanted to enjoy a creamy treat. Today, however, there are many electric ice cream makers on the market that churn your ice cream automatically with the touch of a button.

[what's this?]

You can make ice cream in all sorts of flavors. Be creative! Recipes usually accompany your new ice cream maker, but you can also find plenty online. Rich cream and yogurt make thick, creamy bases, but milk, fruit juice and purees can also be used for a lighter, healthier treat.

Selecting Electric Ice Cream Makers

Black and Decker ice cream makers are specially designed to make it easy for you to produce delicious soft serve at home! Unlike traditional ice cream makers, Black and Decker's Arctic Twister lets you use ordinary store-bought ice cream or yogurt, and then add your choice of mix-ins, such as candy bars, cookies, syrups and even fruit. With a touch of the button, the Arctic Twister then creates a unique swirled soft-serve treat just for you!

If you're looking for a more traditional device, look no further than Rival's White Mountain ice cream makers. Although they're designed to look like an old-fashioned hand-cranked ice cream tub, these modern Rival ice cream makers are completely cutting edge! Using a high-speed electric motor, they can whip up delicious yogurt or ice cream in no time! Plus, cleanup's a breeze with a dishwasher-safe dasher and canister.

Whichever brand of ice cream maker you choose, be sure to check the warranty and always follow the manufacturer's care and cleaning instructions. With proper maintenance, your ice cream maker will have you enjoying sweet treats for years to come!
