Ice cream is thin and won't freeze; watery consistency

I have made ice cream for 2 years with my machine. I use the same ingredients and allow the machine to work the recommended time. Recently, the product has been thin and watery and it seems as if it won't freeze.  I always keep the removable "freezer" in my freezer until I'm ready to turn the ice cream maker on so it's as cold as possible. The machine seems to be working the same as always; same sound and speed.

I remember sitting on Grandpa's old hand-crank ice cream maker
as a kid, holding it down for Grandpa! Add ice to the maker in about 4" increments, layering in between with a good sprinkling of rock salt (lowers the freezing point of water, so the saltwater solution is actually below freezing), crank until the motor won't turn, then CAREFULLY remove the paddles (DON'T CONTAMINATE the ice cream with the brine solution!) cover the top with plastic wrap or wax paper and let it "firm up" for 15-30 minutes. Then enjoy a great old-fashioned treat!!! Hope this helps, let me know how it goes, and good luck and happy eating! -WB

SOURCE: ice cream is soupy & when I freeze it it becomes icy

Freeze the bowl for at least 24 hrs, rather than the 12 hrs the manual suggests - it will make all the difference in the world. For really thick ice cream, freeze the bowl for a day, and then put the ingredients in the freezer until the outer rim becomes frozen. Very delicious!

SOURCE: ice cream not firm

The freezer bowl is sensitive. Go ahead and thaw it out until you can hear the liquid swishing around inside - usually letting warm water run through it is sufficient for thawing. Then refreeze the bowl, making sure the bowl is sitting flat/level in the freezer. When making ice cream with this unit, letting the freezer bowl sit out for even 20 minutes can unfreeze it enough so that you only get sludge. Do not remove the freezer bowl until you are immediately ready to pour the ingedients into the bowl. You can even pre-chill your ingredients by letting the ingredients sit in the freezer for about 15 minutes - although I have found that this usually has the opposite effect of what you have just experienced --> the ingredients usually freeze up so fast that the mixing paddle is no longer able to turn.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Put the ice cream bowl in the dishwasher

The only way to tell is by putting it in the freezer for 24 hours, and then trying to make a batch of ice cream. If it doesn't freeze or make the ice cream properly, then you will need to get a replacement bowl from Cuisinart - they are available.

Most likely the type of heavy whipping cream. I have successfully used TG Lee and Publix brand Heavy Whipping Cream, and have not experienced the problem you are reporting. It was downright delicious.

The ice cream is granular in texture-


Hello!
I actually own the same ice cream maker, and it has made some very good ice cream for me. The most likely causes of grainy ice cream are too short of a time in the machine or recipes with incorrect proportions of water, fat, and sugar.
Firstly, make sure that you are using one of the recipes provided in the maker's user manual, or a different recipe from another source which says that it works with all ice cream makers. Following these recipes will ensure that your ice cream base (the liquid that you pour into the machine) is the correct consistency and composition for freezing. For example, too much sugar could cause improper freezing by oversaturating the solution, or too much fat (or fat incorporated incorrectly) could cause the mixture to become grainy or separate.
If you are using a recipe that calls for eggs, make sure that you mix them with the listed amount of sugar thoroughly before tempering them with the hot cream/milk solution. Additionally, make sure that you only pour a little bit (quarter - half cup) of the solution into the egg mixture at first, stirring thoroughly, before adding the rest. This assures that the eggs do not curdle when heated, which could cause a grainy texture.

Finally, make sure that you are freezing the mixer bowl overnight, using chilled ingredients, and allowing the machine to run for the full 20-25 minutes. The ice cream should be a bit softer than the consistency of soft-serve when you take it out of the machine - easily scoopable with a spatula. If you like it firmer, an 8 to 48 hour freezer session will greatly improve the texture in my opinion.

Hope this helps!

Do you have any recipe for milk free ice cream? For lactose intollerant diet?? Perhaps Almond Milk or Soy Milk.


Here are some of the useful steps to make a milk free ice cream.
1.) Microwave the chocolate and butter-substitute for thirty seconds in a microwave-safe bowl.
2.) Add a dash of salt, and a splash of vanilla extract to taste.
3.) Put a scoop of marshmallow fluff into the bowl and stir it in thoroughly.
4.) Remove the spoon, lick it clean, and wait up to 5 minutes for your mixture to become room temperature.
5.) Place it in the freezer for 50 minutes, remove, and if it is still not frozen well, then stir it thoroughly and place it back in the freezer for another 20 minutes.

Machine is model 750-27can you help me? runs for only about 5seconds not long enough to make ice cream


Welcome to FixYa
An electric ice-cream maker is a tabletop appliance for mixing and freezing ice cream at home. A small electric motor drives gears that turn the canister filled with the ingredients for ice cream. The canister is surrounded with ice and rock salt to freeze the contents. Alternately, a hand crank on top replaces the motor.
Although durable, ice-cream makers can require a few repairs. A common problem is damage to motors or gears from mixing too large batches of ice cream or from neglecting a jammed mixing paddle. The electrical cord can fail and motor bearings can dry out.
Read Following ...
  • Use your cylinder bowl correctly. If the cylinder isn't handled properly, your ice cream won't set. Make sure it is dried completely after washing so ice doesn't form on the walls, make sure to leave it in the freezer overnight before making ice cream and don't leave the bowl out at room temperature before using.
  • Check your freezer door. If it isn't sealed properly, or if it's constantly being opened during the freezing process, your ice cream can't set properly.
  • Handle the ingredients correctly. Don't let the ingredients warm and don't overfill the bowl. Check the manufacturers recommendations for the maximum bowl capacity.
  • Clean and dry your machine thoroughly. Use a damp cloth on the motor assembly; never immerse. Make sure to wash the lid, blade and cylinder according to directions and make sure the cylinder is absolutely dry before freezing.
  • Contact the manufacturer's support site only after you have exhausted your options. They may walk you back through the steps you've already taken, but at best your problem will get fixed far more quickly because you eliminated the easy problems in advance.

Wanting to make less than the 5 quarts that it holds, do I just reduce the recipe to the 2 quart instructions, will it freeze with that much less?


Why would you want to do all that work for LESS ICE CREAM???

In my experience, your ice cream maker will make any amount of ice cream up to its capacity. Remember, it is the salt that is the magic ingredient here ... that allows the ice water you are creating to get colder than 32 degrees F. Ice isnt really cold enough to freeze the mixture.

Why doesn't the ice cream freeze?


It depends upon which techniques you are using to make an ice cream.
If you are using a maker to make an ice cream then it will take hardly 30 to 45 minutes, not more then that.
For making a delicious ice cream right amount of ingredients should be added and should be mixed in a proper way, if it is not mixed in an appropriate manner then possibly you will not get the real taste that exactly you want.

Some one gave me a maverick ice cream maker,an i dont know what to use to make the ice cream.


Hi,
A basic vanilla ice cream recipe to which you change vanilla for anything you wish to is as follows:

Ingredients:
1/2 pint (250ml) single/light cream
small tin of condensed milk
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract (according to taste)

Pour all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix until smooth.

Transfer the whole mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

I have also included a link to what i think is an excellent ice cream recipe site : http://www.ice-cream-recipes.com/.

Hope this helps and happy ice cream making and eating!!!

I have the same problem, but it seems that it has gotten worse with time. When I first bought this product 6 years ago it worked fine, now the bowl won't freeze entirely and it has been in the freezer for two days (at the lowest freezer setting). I am wondering if the freezer bowl has a life span.
