- All three of the ice cream makers were loud, but this one was the softest.
- The dasher seemed a bit flimsy and hooked into the lid with just a small portion of plastic. I do not feel that this would hold up well with thicker ice creams.
- It was difficult to get the lid on and off. It was very heavy and unwieldy and I had trouble getting it to click in place.
- It only comes in unattractive colors.
- After 30 minutes of churning, it shut itself off. The ice cream was soupy and nowhere near done. I thought this may have been a fluke since my daughter used the microwave just before it turned off (and maybe too much power got drawn from the same circuit–not that I know anything about electricity). So a few days later, I made another batch of ice cream and tried it again (with no children around). The same thing happened.
- Though not as loud as the Hamilton Beach, it still put out quite a few decibels.
- The dasher is firm and solid.
- The lid is lightweight and easily snaps into place.
- It comes in attractive colors.
- After 37 minutes, the ice cream was a perfect soft-serve consistency. It was so thick that it stopped moving around in the bowl and was all stuck to the dasher.
- Probably the noisiest of the three makers.
- Dasher seems sturdy enough.
- Lid easily snapped on.
- The bowl wobbled as it spinned.
- After 45 minutes of churning, the ice cream began to overflow. It was the consistency of melted soft-serve.
