Question about Rival 8550-X 5 Quart Ice Cream Maker

1 Answer

Homemade Ice Cream Inconsistency

After an hour or so of churning, my ice cream is very hard against the wall of the mixing container, but still very soupy in the middle. Could I be using too much salt on the ice?

It is possible, but the rivals don't have much power. In an hour it should be frozen anyway. I have an 8550X5 and it never got very firm. Now the gears are stripped. Typical for Rival.

Discovery kids ice cream maker instructions


Usually with these cheaper ice cream makers you put the bowl in the freezer for 12 hours and then put it on the machine and turn it on . Very important point turn it on so it is churning. Why so that what ever you pour in doesn't freeze solid and stop the agitator from churning. Most ice cream is Cream and sweeten condensed milk and flavouring. I do not have this exact ice cream maker but the one I do have has made three different ice creams in it so far. Add 1000 mL of cream to 250 mL sweeten condensed cream. Watch it for about 20 minutes till ice cream is solidifying then transfer to an plastic icecream container and put in freezer for at least 4 hours.

Can you tell me how this ice cream machine works


The basic old style ice cream maker worked by putting the ice cream ingredients inside the center container and the motor device on top turns the spatulas inside to mix it up. Then you put ice and water and salt in the outer bucket. The ice and salt make it very cold so the ice cream freezes as it churns. Some newer devices, just have a mixer and you put the whole thing in your freezer to make it freeze.

Don't have instruction manual. How do you make basic ice cream in this machine? How long do you freeze container in freezer? How long do you plug in?


Freeze the the container for at least 48 hours before using it. You can use whatever ice cream recipe you like in the unit. Basic vanilla - 3 cups whole milk - 1 teas vanilla - 1 cup heavy whipping cream - 1/2 cup sugar. Mix everything together in a pitcher and make sure the sugar is disolved. Taste it and make sure it is sweet enough for you. If not, add more sugar. If you use 2% your ice cream will not be very thick and it will take longer to set up and freeze.

Put the container in the ice cream maker. Turn it on (insert the plastic mixing blade if it has one) Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker if it has an open space to add mix through the top. If not - put the mix in before turning it on (my model is a little different than yours - sorry!)

when the ice cream is thick enough for you - then its done. It usually takes approx 15 - 20 for soft serve/milk shake consistency - and 30 - 45 for stiffer - ice cream. The ice cream does not get hard - at best its soft serve quality. There are other recipes that you cook which I hear will set up harder but I have not tried any yet.

You can make chocolate by using the same recipe above - and adding any liquid chocolate - or fudge. If you add strawberry preserves - it makes strawberry ice cream. sugar free drink mix added to the vanilla recipe above makes great flavors (crystal light drink power mixes ect)

Good luck!

CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME OR EXPLAIN WHY MY MUSSO ICE CREAM MACHINE TAKES HOURS TO CHURN 1.5L OF CHILLED MIX. DAVE 07 5448 2937


Do you use enough salt to assist in the freezing period? What kind of salt do you use? Use rock salt since it works better than table salt. This wills speed up the freezng time.

Gets only cool not cold


Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
makes 1 generous quart
4 egg yolks
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups half-and-half
1 vanilla bean or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup whipping cream
In a bowl, beat the egg yolks until blended and mix in sugar. Heat the half and half, stir into the egg yolks, and pour into the top part of a double boiler. Split the vanilla bean and scrape its seeds into the cream and add the bean as well. Place over simmering water and stirring constantly, cook until the mixture is custard-like and coats the spoon. Remove from heat and refrigerate until cold, or several hours. Remove vanilla bean. If using vanilla extract, stir it in at this point. Just before ready to churn; stir in the whipping cream. Freeze according to directions for your ice cream freezer.

Ice cream has ice crystals in it


Ice crystals are more prevalent in homemade ice cream because it takes longer to freeze the mix. When you can flash-freeze the ice cream to very low temperatures very quickly, there is less time for the molecules to melt and refreeze, which causes crystal formation.

ice-cream-ice-crystals-in-myawdgdmzywgx1pl2igmxr0v-3-0.jpg
Here are some of the useful tips:
1.) When the ice cream is done, transfer to the coldest part of the freezer as quickly as possible
2.) Pre-freeze the ice cream bowl before using, and pre-freeze the storage container before putting the ice cream in it and into the freezer
3.) Make sure the mix is very cold before using the machine. Maybe put the mix in the freezer for 15 minutes before starting the machine, so that it will finish faster

Hopefully this information helps a lot.
