Not a Ice-Cream Maker.

Cons: it is just a mixer., cannot be used to make ice cream.
" It is not an Ice-cream maker - I would rather call it an Ice-cream mixer because after mixing one needs to put it in the freezer to harden the ice cream.
It is better to use any other mixer and put it in the freezer to freeze the ice-cream.
I would seriously suggest the company to change the name from Ice-cream maker to something else. "

Response from Costco:By BuyerSmall AppliancesJuly 26, 2011
Thank you for your review. The freezer bowl must be completely frozen before you begin your recipe. Before freezing, wash and dry the bowl. The length of time needed to reach the frozen state depends on how cold your freezer is. It is recommended that you place the freezer bowl in the back of your freezer where it is coldest. Be sure to place the freezer bowl on a flat surface in its upright position for even freezing. Generally, freezing time is between 16 and 24 hours. It is important that the bowl be frozen completely before use to ensure optimal results. The unit will mix your ingredients and make ice cream with a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, simply transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place it in a freezer until a desired consistency is reached.

" So far I have made a batch of ice cream and one of frozen yogurt... just getting ready to make another batch of frozen yogurt.
I find it makes a pretty good product, maybe a little soft but if its put into the freezer for an hour or two its perfect. The one thing I dont like is how hard it gets after a couple of days, but I am working on that!
All ingredients must be cold before making. I leave the bowl in the freezer at all times and then it is ready when I need it.

Does what it should do!

Pros: works well for the price.
Cons: not as proficient as a commercial product.
" I agree with the Costco response regarding this product. I have had this ice cream maker for over a year and when the directions are followed correctly, the ice cream is perfect! Yes, it is not going to be frozen solid but the consistancy is very much like soft-serve...I just pop it into my freezer for a while then...presto...the product is very good! Remember to pre-freeze the container before starting to make ice cream. For the price, I couldn't be more satisfied. For a more professional product, you'd need to buy a commercial ice cream maker. "
