Wanted to share my good find

Wanted to share my good find last night!

I was at a second hand store and found a full size, circa 1980-90 Donvier ice cream maker for $3!

It was in good condition and clean so I purchased it...then came home and promptly sanitized it!

I had one many years ago, but it was the mini one as that was all I could afford at the time. I'm wondering if the person doing the pricing didn't know what it was

Just wanted to share my good find!

I love serendipitous finds like this. I found a set of 3 Le Creuset enamelled cast iron saucepans in nesting sizes for £2 the set (again, about $3) in a charity shop. The smallest was cracked (how??) so I re-donated it but the two were still a good deal for £2. They were even the same colour (volcanic) as my existing set of Le C pans which I'd paid about £35 for in a sale about 40 years ago.

So we're all invited for Ice Cream?

What's the first batch gonna be?

I like plain vanilla but strawberry comes in second.


Great find and you can't go wrong for $3.00.

Good choice.

Now how bout that invite for each and every one of us?

I've got an "old" ice cream freezer around here somewhere. Guess I should think about digging it out and making some fresh ice cream for myself.

If I do then your all invited for the big ice cream party.

But there are some exceptions.

Pac has to bring some bacon to the party. (Hey, Bacon flavored ice cream could be really good.)

And the Chief has to bring some fish chili because I haven't had a chance to make it yet and I really want to try it.

I'm sure I can figure out many other requirements but it would drift the thread way to much as if I haven't already.

Enjoy your ice cream maker Stormy. You got a great deal and there isn't anything much better then fresh ice cream.

Thank you! I looked it up on Amazon and the same model goes for $68...still outside my price range! I didn't even think they made it any more!

And here's a recipe (scroll down past the bit about candying bacon)

Thank you Mad Cook.

That shows that I'm not the only crazy person in the world.

If Pac brings the bacon that I've been waiting for at the Post Office to make the ice cream I'll pay for your ticket to taste it at the party.

Stormy,
$68.00 would be above my price range for an ice cream machine too. You got a great deal and I hope you have a wonderful time with it.

Water Melons will be ripe here soon. I can see that as a tasty treat also. Go for the gusto and remember that the sky and imagination are the limit.

Please remember to invite us to the "Ice Cream Party."

Is this a hand cranked model? I Googled it and saw the handle sticking out the top.

I have always been interested in the type of ice cream maker seen on the professional TV shows.
The one that has its own freezing capability. I bet that kind is very expensive.
