I'll be the first to admit that I never though an ice cream maker could be this much fun. Incredible. We just can't put it down. We sit down at lunch every single day. and start talking about what we want to make for dessert.
It's extremely easy to use and clean and makes wonderful quality ice cream. This is paying for itself as we speak.

This product is amazing! Fairly quiet, it makes ice cream within 30 - 40 minutes without having to worry about all of the ice and pre-freezing process. Definitely a must for those cooks who make ice cream on a frequent basis and who want restaurant quality!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lebkuchen Best for the price
After trying a few other ice cream makers in the $50 and over range, I settled on the Whynter - and I'm glad I did! The others were very noisy and didn't work well at all. They had removable bowls that had to be frozen overnight, and the mix had to be very cold in order to achieve any kind of solidity. Even then, the product was slushy and had to be frozen. The final product was icy. Very annoying. The Whynter is a one-button affair. Put your mix in the bucket, push the button and walk away. You can time it for as long as you want it to freeze, or, if it's frozen before the time is up, it will automatically turn off while keeping the temperature below freezing. Just the ticket, short of a full-on commercial machine!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Diana Great product but the instructions are lacking.
Once I got a couple of gelato/sorbet cookbooks, I got a much better perspective on how gelato and sorbets are made. This meant a huge difference in the outcome of what I made. Now my gelatos and sorbets are smooth and creamy and very delicious.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SRabq Finally got the machine I was waiting for!
After receiving two ice cream makers with major flaws, I received one in perfect condition. I've made three batches
of ice cream since I received it four days ago. Works well and in no time flat the ice cream is done. I am completely satisfied, just sorry it took three tries to get it right!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gdlead01 An excellent product
Have made three batches of Irish Cream Gelato which have turned out great. Do not have a chest type freezer so I could not use a "freeze the bucket" type ice cream maker as my refrigerator freezer would not get the bucket cold enough. This Whynter ice cream maker, on the other hand, with its built in compressor does the job and does it very well. In about 55 minutes of churning the Gelato is ready to eat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TBone We made some great blackberry ice cream
Based on what I had read, I was expecting a little more noise from the unit, but was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was. Our first try was to make some Pioneer Woman blackberry ice cream, which was absolutely wonderful. We plan to work our way up to making spumoni. A very nice unit for the money.

Both my mom and my sister bought this, so I was slow to catch on but I finally got mine. I was hoping it would go on sale again, but it didn't so I had to bite the bullet and pay full price. I don't know how energy effecient it is which is why I left that part blank. I am a little bit worried that my power bill is going to shoot up. It does get noisy at the end, but if you have a large space you probably won't notice it. My mom has a large kitchen and living room and the noise isn't bad for her, but I have a very small kitchen so I notice it at the end.
