I purchased the 8 qt. Immergood ice cream maker and have been very pleased with it.
I evaluated several other options but this one was by far the best constructed unit available.
When deciding which model to purchase I realized you can always make a smaller batch in the 8qt machine but you can't make a larger batch in the smaller ones.
So far we have made several ice creams as well as sherbet and an Italian Ice.
If you want to go beyond plain vanilla I recommend THE ICE CREAM BOOK by Louis P. De Gouy originally published in 1938 this is the definitive book on ice-cream made by hand.
Hi James, thanks so much for taking a few minutes out of your day to write an accurate review. We enjoy hearing from our customers. I like you book suggestion. I will have to get the book to inspire new ideas!
Great product. Bought them as.gifts for my sister who has a business. She is in awe of the durability, especially of the plastic.
Hi Claudia, Thanks for your comments on the freezer. We will do our best to keep producing these quality products.
used it for the first time today. i bought a six quart white mountain freezer in 1982 and have used it many times a year since then with good results, the wm bucket wood is still good but the bands that surround the staves is very corroded and fragile. i was goint to get replacement parts but found white mountain is longer the company it once was.
i found immergood freezers as a possible replacement and decided to go up a size.
i will say that the mixing action is as good or better than white mountain's and the freezing time is shorter. probably the insulated bucket is the reason. the ice cream ripened quicker (possibly because i also purchased the insulated cover) i had used a couple bath towels over the white mountain freezer.
i am well pleased with the immergood eight quart hand crank ice cream freezer.
Hi James, thanks for your review of your 8 qt. freezer. It sounds like you are an experienced ice cream creator. The Immergood freezer is born out of frustrations with declining quality and lack of continued improvement of available options. Common sense things like using non-rusting parts in salt water seemed to be missing on other models available. Immergood was built with longevity in mind. After all, if you are making homemade ice cream, you would like to continue the tradition into the next generation. We appreciate your in-depth review. Have fun making ice cream.
We've made 24 quarts of ice cream since we bought the 8 quart hand crank at the end of August for a few parties at the farm and youth group at our church. Everyone that had the ice cream loved it. We got engraving on the mixing unit and stainless steel lid. We got the got everything in 2 days! Blow away that it was delivered so fast with custom engraving. Thank you!!
Thanks for the feedback Matt. I am glad we were able to exceed your expectations. Enjoy making your homemade ice cream, and memories.
We haven't made our first batch of ice cream yet, (we're giving this to each other for our 49th wedding anniversary the end of this month), but the quality of this freezer is superb, and there's no doubt we will soon be making some delicious ice cream and other frozen treats for our children, our grandchildren, and our great grands! The engraving is beautifully done, and we really appreciated the suggestion to put something on each side of the gear frame! This ice cream freezer was extremely well packed, and the shipping was very fast! We look forward to many years of enjoyment from this item, and couldn't be more pleased with our purchase!
Happy 49th Anniversary! Blessings to you both as a testament of strong marriages. You provide the foundation of a strong community.
Oh, and thanks for sharing about your ice cream maker. I am pleased to be able to offer you the laser engraving (new this year). This is done right here in house. Enjoy making ice cream... and teaching us younger folks what makes strong marriages. Your example is noticed.
As always, if you have any trouble with the ice cream freezer, give me a call. Or if you loose a part, I will do what I can to get another for you.
