Store bought ice cream is sad. Ice cream stores get their ice cream from the same place as the store.
I'm going to start making my own. Does anyone make ice cream? Where do I start?
they have so many wonderful ice cream makers out there. a good way to start is online. i agree with you!

Yes mam..that is it!!

Sounds cheap for an electric model...but I have not priced one in years.
If I remember...they had a 4 qt. and 6 qt...model....

That one is a 6 qt.

The price seems pretty good for something with such a capacity that works really well!

I had one like that, but it was the 4-qt. electric model. It lasted for 20 years.

But after a while, it began making and awful squeaking sound that was just too unbearable, so I had no other choice but to throw it away.

However, I DO have a self-contained unit that works very well. You can get recipe books for ice cream at your local book store. There are some scrumptious recipes that you'll be tempted to try!

One of my favorites is Royal Vanilla ice cream.

Still have not shopped the net for a White Mountain...So I would agree.
A 6 qt electric White Mountain brand new for that price I think would be good...Mine is a 6 quart manual turn...We wanted it that way...Nostalgic I suppose....

A full batch(6 quarts frozen custard) takes longer to make and is harder to crank towards the end of the process... It has to be a big party to make a full batch.....So we usually make a half batch which is still a lot of ice cream....Mine is 12 to 15 year old...no problem...So it gets 5 STARS from me.

If you would typically need smaller quantities of ice cream, consider this. I have been using this machine for years and it makes very good ice cream.

Do any of you ever make "healthier" ice cream in your units? You know...low fat, low sugar...all that other kind of stuff? Or is not available/possible without those special commercial/industrial ingredients?

I never have tried...I always want the un-healthy kind..lots of cream, eggs, etc....

However I don't see why..using lowfat milk, maybe splenda type sweetner wouldn't work...then again it may not freeze correctly...might be kinda icey as opposed to smooth and creamy...I just don't know...But worth a try for sure!!

It's just hard to find a commercial ice cream that's both low fat AND low in sugar.

I think I have a recipe, now that you mention Splenda, in my Splenda cookbook. I'll have to check when I get home...
