KitchenAid 5KICA0WH Ice Cream Maker : Great Ice-cream maker !

I live in france, but bought the ice cream attachment while in uk during the summer. I returned to france and used the machine no more than 5 times before noticing that the bowl was leaking blue gel while in the freezer. I asked amazon for advice and they gave me contacts for kitchen aid. Kitchen aid showed no interest at all in helping me. I was asked to take it to a small electronics repair shop an hours drive from my house in order to verify it was leaking. They would not accept photos and refused to say what they would do once the electronics shop had seen that it was leaking. I was a little shocked and upset at the money i seemed to have wasted and again contacted amazon to ask what i could do. They offered to send me a new one in return for the old. My point is that i have noticed people making the same complaint on similar sites, but kitchen aid does not acknowledge there is a potential problem. If you are similarly affected, you two could risk getting only 5 batches of very expensive ice cream from your purchase.

It very good and very easy to use but not so straight forward to use cause you have to leave in a freezer first for some time so you can not really make ice cream when you rally want.

Was worried having read other reviews claiming only could soup produced. Bowl froze solid in 15 hours after turning freezer to max. Used 1 cu whipping cream plus 1 cup skimmed milk as substitute for half and half following fat percentage comments in accompanying booklet. Have small chest freezer rather than fridge freezer, perhaps that makes a difference in temperatures?.

Has so far made the most excellent ice cream. Well, actually bought it for my wife, who has made the most excellent ice cream 😉 however she was delighted with it as a present to compliment her kitchenaid. I dare say other reviewer will complain it is a fiddle or that bits are made of plastic. However it’s not a fiddle if you have common sense and follow the instructions and the plastic parts are sutuitable strong and corrosion-proof which makes perfect sense. Doesn’t go in the dishwasher but (unlike some other reviewers) i am not such a lazy bugger that i find washing it in the sink a problem). As i say it makes great ice cream – especially if you buy the ben & jerry’s ice cream recipe book .

When requested for this as a christmas present, we asked just that question. However reports of great success and later tasting says that this is a great product.

This is very expensive for what it is. Make sure you keep it in the freezer for 24 hours before you want to make ice cream. It is easy to use and saves space on the worktop instead of having a seperate one. I have only used it 3 times so far and it worked ok but i found the paddle attachment a bit awkward to fit and when churning it would move and shift out of place creating loud squeaking sounds. I could not stop the machine to adjust it back into place or it ruins the ice cream if you stop churning.

When used in conjunction with ben & jerry’s ice cream book, it produces the most wonderful ice-cream. Very easy to use, was in constant use througout the summer months and several of the winter ones as well.
