1pc Baby Boy Sleeveless Stripe Giraffe Elephant Print Jumpsuit Review
NewHope: We have tested this Ice Cream Freezer well... we've made no less than two kinds of ice cream every weekend since it arrived... about a month now. It definitely surpasses our old one for speed of freezing, and keeping the cream mixed with the special dual action paddle.It is very loud, but I use ours on an enclosed porch so it helps to keep the noise down.I have had the issue that other reviewers have with the "black" around the top of lid (it's where the lid grinds against the canister while churning).All in all though we are very happy with it, can't wait for black raspberries to come in season... it's a favorite. But we've done chocolate, vanilla (3 x's), butter pecan, peanut butter (2 x's), and teaberry/wintergreen. Recipes in the book are few but the internet provides many to choose from, I've taken several and tweeked them to suit us then added them to my files, the peanut butter has gone over very well, add hot fudge and it's just like eating frozen reese's cups!I very much recommend this item over other brands, you can't beat the creaminess of the special paddle that double churns the mix.Update 2011...By the end of last year my husband had to put the motor back together (it literally fell apart when taking off the canister), thank goodness he's very 'handy'. But the tub is rusting quite badly (the bands that hold the wood together, the lock to hold the motor on) even with cleaning after each use, the inside canister is still looking good. I waited to amend the review until we tried to use again after repair. It does work, just sounds different. It always did have a loud sound to it but now it's different. I must admit I was disappointed, my parents bought White Mountain and it lasted through my childhood, my father says it's still there, just in the attic so he's not sure of the shape it's in, their's was hand crank. I'm told White Mountain was bought out by Rival so be wary that it may no longer be worth the price they are asking for, it is no longer the same quality as before. Hoping to get a few more years from it, I guess time will tell.
Sticky Wallet "Sticky Wallet": This is the real thing! I have tried other ice cream makers and this thing worked flawlessly out of the box and makes real ice cream even in a hot and humid environment with ambient temperatures of about 33 degrees Celsius and 85% humidity in a RESTAURANT kitchen and I have been using this everyday to make at least 2 or 3 batches everyday!Would definitely recommend it. A durable item that holds up in today's disposable times. A bit on the loud side as in other reviews but in a restaurant kitchen, who cares as long as it does the job reliably!
Terri Curran "Terri": My father has had one of these ice cream maker for about 25 years, I got mine about 10 years ago, and just got one for my son & his wife. After trying some of the 'cheaper' models, I went with what my Dad had and it has worked like a charm. It has never given me a bad batch of ice cream, and we make it all summer long. The only thing that I've found with any homemade ice cream is to let it 'sit' for about 30 minutes after the churning is done. It has a chance to harden up, and the kids always like having the dasher for a pre-taste!I don't think you'll ever find a better ice cream maker - and I hope you enjoy yours as much as my family has ours!
A. Biggs: I didn't fully realize how nice this peeler is until I was at my mother's over Christmas and tried to use two of hers. They were slippery, dull, and they HURT to use! I had never understood that one peeler really could be better than another before that.This peeler is comfortable to hold, even at the end of a big job like peeling apples for a pie or potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner. It is sharp, so you don't have to use a lot of pressure, which also helps decrease hand fatigue. All-in-all, a good product.** Update 8/18/11: I'm back to purchase two of these as stocking stuffers for my mother. No excuses -- now she can throw out those peelers that have been hanging around since I was a kid. . .
Acristo102: Sharp peeler, owned one for more than 2 years. It has a big and non slip handle that makes it easy to grasp.
