Ice cream maker

I use one of those freezer bowls ice cream maker. Although it’s a good idea it needs some freezer space to freeze it. It also needs at least 20- 24 hours to get a freezer effect. When using the freezer bowls always use with the paddle running add the ice cream mixture as you go along. Otherwise the mixture will freeze up before it starts to churn. It will spoil the motor of the unit. Here is a  link to a freezer bowl ice cream maker.

If not there is a compressor ice cream maker. It normally cost more than the freezer bowl ones. Here is a link to reasonably priced compressor ice cream maker.

Failing that I remember in my childhood days my mum use to go back and forth to the freezer and electric whisk. This is so as to churn the cream mixture into ice. It’s a lot of hassle making ice cream that way but it works.
