Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by foofy This ice cream maker is pretty good, all things considered
I had trouble getting up and running but only because I was used to a traditional ice cream maker that has a much bigger capacity. The Sno doesn't freeze quite as hard as my other maker but is sure is easier to use. Not having to use ice really makes it handy. It would be the best machine ever if it had a larger capacity. It says it's 2 quarts but you can't put that much in. The instructions could use a little work...like a trouble shooting guide.

Complicated unit that broke on the first batch of ice cream. I have returned the unit (great customer service at Home Deopt by the way) and purchased a simple ice cream maker that required freezing the churn bowl. It is simple, easy to use and makes great ice cream. You really don't need an expensive, refrigerated unit. If many things can go wrong, they probably will.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dean excellent ice cream
A little tough to figure out at first but made great ice cream in a very short period of time. Quick to make repeat batches. a little difficult to clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer We just love it.
Not a fancy machine, but it sure does make very delicious ice cream. The consistency is surprisingly smooth and creamy. Not airy or flaky at all. It's a whole concept ahead of the rock salt self churn toys. Quite easy to use, just put your preferred mixture in and press play. You can fine tune by adding frozen fruit during the process. I'm very impressed.

I have used the ice cream maker about 30 times It is easy to use and easy to clean up, no difficulty making back to back batches. I find myself experimenting with different recipes more because the machine is so easy to use. I am pleased with my purchase.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bonehead Good, fairly heavy duty, lacks features
Early, but appears more ruggedly built than competition. Would like it to have some means to turn off at end of cycle - time, temperature, mixture stiffness, etc. Easy to clean and put back together. Touch controls don't always respond at first touch.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marauderer The Wynter works great and the price from HD was fantastic
This unit is great for making ice cream with a minimum amount of effort. The refrigeration unit gets cold quickly and it is a no hassle machine. I would definitely buy this unit again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve It's great, but expensive
Cons: expensive, heavy and loud.
Pros: simple to use, easy clean-up, makes great ice cream, doesn't take long (about 20 minutes), pre-freezing of the cannister not required.
