The freezer bowl thaws quickly. And, let’s face it, it’s a rather ugly option compared to some of the other ice cream makers on our list.


If you’re considering getting into the ice cream making game, but haven’t tried it yet, you may want to start with this electric appliance. We know it’s not a pretty machine. And, we know it’s almost ridiculously loud. But…

It operates with a mere on/off switch, crafts a good wallop of ice cream, and it all comes at a terrific price. Who cares if you wear it out trying every recipe in the included booklet? It’s less than $30. You probably spend that much going out for ice cream.

How much ice cream can you make? You can make up to 4 quarts of ice cream with this ice cream maker. And, that’s exceptional for the price.

How long do you need to wait? Depending on how much ice cream you plan to make, you can expect it 20 to 40 minutes. A half hour or so, for that amount of ice cream, is rather good.

How much room does it fill? It’s not the smallest ice cream maker on the list, with dimensions of 15.3 x 12.5 x 11.1 inches and is quite light at 6.5 pounds.

Is it difficult to clean? No. It’s not difficult, but you can’t put any of the pieces in the dishwasher. Bummer.

Will it break the bank? The price is the reason we love this ice cream maker. The MSRP is $35, but you’ll get it for less than $30. You have to love that.
