Rated 5 out of 5 by kitchensuper1 Homemade ice cream in 15 minutes is awesome!
Upon reading mixed reviews, I was somewhat cautious about purchasing the ice cream maker attachment. However, after speaking with the ladies at the KitchenAid center in Greenville, I made the purchase and followed the directions closely that came with the product and those of the Greenville ladies, such as freeze the bowl standing upright in a deep freeze and chill the ice cream mixture before freezing at least 8 hours. I was amazed that in just under 15 minutes, we had delicious homemade French Vanilla ice cream! We look forward to trying new flavors!

I froze the bowl for 17 hours and has my mixture in the fridge overnight. I followed the directions exact and it worked perfect. My children are very happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by terryg this item has never frozen my ice cream
I have never had a complaint about a Kitchenaid product until now. I have many attachments for my Kitchenaid mixer. A couple of years ago I purchased the ice cream maker attachment. I tried it immediately, following directions but the ice cream always remained liquid, never freezing even the tiniest bit. I put it back in the freezer and months later tried again with the same results. Then because we were renovating our kitchen I put it back in the freezer until yesterday when I finally tried it again but still the base remained liquid. My daughter has this attachment and it seems to work fine for her. Unfortunately, the product is out of warranty for me. I have emailed to see if there were problems with ones made a couple of years ago. I hesitate to buy another one but really enjoy making ice cream and sorbets. I hate the thought of having to buy a completely separate appliance to do this and had so hoped that it would work for me. It is difficult to recommend this product to others when I have never been able to make it work. Any hints from other people would be most welcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AbbSears Skeptic turned into a Believer!
When I first received this product, I was highly skeptical about how it would perform. I read all the directions thoroughly and decided to make the french vanilla ice cream for my first batch. I prepared the mix the night before. The next morning, it literally only took me 25 minutes to make my first batch. And I couldn't believe how good that it tasted! My husband said that it was by far the best home made ice cream he has ever tasted! I love my little ice cream maker now and I am even wanting to purchase a second bowl!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MeganGinny Worked perfectly
I used this just today and loved it. It started to turn into ice cream within minutes and was completely done in about 15 min. There was no hassle in getting anything done. We have decided to leave the attachment in the freezer always, and just pull it out when we have the desire to make some ice cream. I'm really excited to make more.

the ice cream maker leaked blue fluid after only a couple uses. This was second unit that did this. Daughter also had 2 units that did the same.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Owphoenix Does not work
Tried three different recipes none worked. Bowl was in the freezer for days in between attempts. Speed was on stir. A waste of $79.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeffW Could use a lid.
I bought this ice cream maker because it received such favorable ratings on my fav cooking/product review show and I already owned a KitchenAid Mixer. I am very happy with it!
The one feature I wished it had was a tight fitting lid so when I did store it in the freezer for long periods of time it would be less likely to pick up freezer odors.
