The machine works fine. The motor went out mid-way through the 3rd batch of ice cream, however, customer service was very quick to send out another one. I have not received the new motor yet, but the hand-crank worked well for our 4th of July celebration. Make sure you quit cranking though when it starts to get really thick, stripping out the plastic gear on the hand crank could be an issue, we stopped as soon as it slipped the first time to avoid stripping. Be sure to register your machine online so it makes your warranty easier to use if the need arises.

I should have read the reviews, I bought two, Both motors lasted about 10 min. They are really just a piece of junk, made to look good. Not worth much, the Bucket will make a nice flower box..

My children and I gave this ice cream maker to my husband for Father's Day. We used it for the first time and the motor burnt. Definitely disappointed. Will be returning as soon as possible. The hand crank worked fine but if I'm spending this much money, I would like both options to work as described.

The electric motor shuts off before ice cream is ready. It shuts off in a smoothie stage.
The hand crank is made of a cheap alloy. I feel that using the hand crank much beyond the stage the electric motor stops will break the handle or some part of the hand crank.
I like the quitness of the Aroma freezer;however, I would like a stronger motor and a more durable hand crank. If this is not acceptable, I am very willing to exchange it for a full refund to include the shipping and packaging.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keith I had been looking for a while for at least a 5 qt freezer and this one at 6 fit the bill.
It looks good and performs with no effort on my part, other than keeping it iced and salted. Makes great ice cream in little time. Be sure to follow the instructions to fill with water for about and hour prior to using so that the wood can expand to seal leaks while operating. Strongly suggest putting the unit in a tub to capture the salt water that does leak. This is all normal.

I am an NC Farm Fresh Roadside. I sale fresh vegetables & fruits. I wanted to sale ice cream. I searched online for ice cream makers. I needed a big ice cream maker. I found Home Depot with 6 Qt. Woodbarrel Ice Cream Maker. I have 5 other manufactory ice cream makers. This Aroma is my best~ I have ever used! It has a large canister I needed and wanted. This product is cheaper cost than any other makers. The barrell, canister, dasher and electric motor are very professional items. With instructions and resource ideas making ice cream have helped me create the best topic ice cream. This ice cream maker finished making ice cream freeze shorter times than other manufactories. I try to keep my budget low and this item helps me saving money. I AM SUGGESTING OTHERS SHOULD BUY THIS "6 Qt. Woodbarrel Ice Cream Maker". Look forward your party everyone will be proud of you! I will buy 2 more again soon.
