How to Choose an Ice Cream maker
How to pick an ice cream maker. How to buy an ice cream maker. Choosing an ice cream maker.
Buy an ice cream maker for making your own dairy-free (vegan) "ice cream."
Above are the White Mountain 4 quart electric model, the Krups 358 1.5 quart electric (replaced with a newer model), and the White Mountain 4 quart manual model, respectively. All these are excellent quality. I started using my first Krups maker July 1999 and used it frequently for many years. It made hundreds of quarts. It is compact, easy to use, and is great for small batches (1 quart - the size of the recipes in my book). I purchased a White Mountain electric for the 2001 PETA Gala in New York City and made 14 gallons of Vice Cream® in 3 days. The White Mountain models are the top of the line "ice cream" makers for home use. I like having both a Krups and a White Mountain. They are each great for different occasions. I special-ordered a manual crank to use with my two White Mountain makers, so I have the option to go manual.
There are two basic types of ice cream makers. One uses salt & ice, which has its benefits. The other uses a pre-frozen bowl, which also has its benefits.
White Mountain (and similar): you can make countless batches one after each other, but it requires salt and ice.
Krups/Cuisinart (and similar): No additional materials (such as salt & ice) are required, other than electricity. It is easy to use, but you can only use it once a day (possibly twice if you pre-chill the ingredients/mix and you do one batch in the early morning and on in the late evening).
If you get the hand crank option on an ice cream maker (like the White Mountain) it can be fun for a family/group and it also saves electricity (it's also quieter).
I actually have a number of White Mountain, Cuisinart, and Krups ice cream makers.
Another option, though more expensive, is a self-contained unit, which does not need pre-freezing, salt or ice, and can make batch after batch.
For a great location and price on one of the above "ice cream" makers, as well as other models, click here! I have purchased from this company and have been very happy with their service!
