  1. This is so cute. I love that the recipes are simple, with few ingredients.

  2. hey I have the ice cream but ive been turning the handle for almost an hour and it’s still liquid…. I dont know what I did wrong…. it has all the ingredients… afeter mixing them and putting them on the maker … was there something else I had to do? ps. i used heavy whipping cream was that the problem?

  3. @Paloma
    First, did you make sure to fill the drum with ice? Other then that, the type of cream is important, some creams tend to solidify easier then others. Also if you pour to much mix on the maker it won’t work. Be sure to pour very slowly and never put too much in it. It does take quite awhile to make good ice cream though. If you do everything right though it should solidify eventually.

    Hope this helps. =)

  4. Isn’t 5 0z of salt a lot of sodium for one recipe? I wouldn’t give my kids that much salt.

  22. What brand to get for heavey whipping cream

  23. What brand of whiping cream am I suppose to buy

  24. I don’t understand! Is everything in the tin? Or do you poor the mix in the white thing and the salt and ice in the tin?

    • I asked that too 3 questions down!

    • Anonymous says:

      you put the ice and salt in the tin, then you mix the rest of the ingredients and pour them SLOWLY on the tin (Make sure its in the white, little container thing) It takes a while to freeze though so i would suggest putting the container with the ice in it in the freezer, while you mix the ingredients! hope that helps! 🙂

  28. Where do you put the actual ice cream mix that you make? Do you put it in the drum with the ice cubes, salt, ect…? (I lost my instructions.)

  34. I can tell you that I went ahead and made sure we got ice cream. I put the drum in the freezer with the ice in it. Then got it out and added salt and the water to the drum. Poured very slowly and our ice cream was a little hard! actually had to use a little more than the plastic scraper to get it off! Maybe not quiet so much cold:)
