Whynter stainless steel ice cream maker ICM-200LS Reviews

If you’re looking for a great gift to give your friends or family members, the Whynter stainless steel ice cream maker ICM-200LS is the answer. If there is anyone that you know who loves ice cream, frozen yogurt, frozen drinks, gelato, or sorbets, this ice cream maker is the best thing that they could ever ask for. I know, because I was given this ice cream machine as a gift from a friend and have since given it as a gift to my parents and my husband’s parents! When the package arrived at my house I was very excited to tear into it and get this machine all set up. I was happy to see that the packaging itself was not damaged in any way and that all of the components and instructions were in the box and unharmed as well. After reading the instructions I washed the mixing bowl and the churning paddles and wiped down the entire machine to make sure that it was clean before making my first batch of ice cream. I mixed up my ingredients and poured them into the mixing bowl. I set the timer and started my very first batch of homemade ice cream. When the timer went off I opened the lid to discover a delicious and creamy dessert waiting for me inside. I scooped myself a small bowl and put the rest in the freezer. I was blown away with the taste and quality of that first batch of ice cream and I have been astounded by every single batch since!

Features and Specification

This ice cream maker weighs around twenty-five pounds and is 11.2 inches by 16.8 inches by 10.2 inches. The mixing bowl is removable and easy to clean. There is a timer built in that sounds an audible alarm when the mixture is done. The motor is very strong and quiet and it has an automatic shut-off function that stops the machine once the mixture is done to prevent it from becoming damaged in the event that the ice cream freezes solid. The machine is made of high quality stainless steel and is incredibly sturdy while also being very sleek and attractive.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • This machine is extremely sturdy and reliable and is made of gorgeous stainless steel.
  • There is a bright LCD screen that gives a temperature reading and the timer.
  • The built in timer has an audible alarm to let you know when the ice cream is done.
  • The motor has an automatic shut-off that prevents any damage to the machine or its components if the mixture becomes frozen solid.
  • This machine gives you the ability to make ice cream of any flavor or combination of flavors that you can possibly dream up!
  • This machine is self-refrigerating which means that you do not have to put the mixing bucket into the freezer before use, allowing you to make batches back to back and not having to take up precious space in your freezer.
  • This machine makes all kinds of frozen desserts from ice cream to gelato all in record time, around thirty minutes.
  • A recipe guide is included with many absolutely delicious ice cream recipes to try out with your new ice cream maker!

Cons

  • This machine is relatively heavy and bulky so some people may find that storing it can be a problem.
  • This machine is much quieter than others on the market; however it can still be a little noisy while it is running. However, I feel that this is a very small price to pay for delicious ice cream made in your own home!

Not only that, but this machine has allowed me to entertain my guests and provide ample amounts of frozen yogurt, gelato, sorbet, and even frozen alcoholic beverages. This machine is an absolutely amazing purchase and it is worth its weight in gold!
