I purchased the ice cream maker without a user guide. Is one available?


Are you looking for operating instructions or recipes? Recipes available everywhere ... really. Operating? Here is what you do: Get some ice cubes ... crush them with a hammer ... you will need a lot ... the finer crushed the smoother the ice cream. Put the mix in the metal container and put about 4 -6 inches of ice in the bucket with some water. Put about 1# of rock salt on the ice. More ice ... more salt ... more ice ... more salt ... more ice ... more salt until the bucket is full. Start the machine. Your ice cream should be ready in about 1/2 hour. When the machine stops cranking ... remove the mixer from the can. If you can stand it ... let the ice cream sit in the container for 1/2 hour ... the longer you wait the better the batch. But who can wait???

The ice cools the water, the salt reduces the temp of the water to cause the mix to freeze.

I hope this helps you ... this is how we make home made ice cream every summer ... what a special treat for the kids ... young and old alike.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Why won't the freezer freeze the ice cream? It freezes around the outside of the cannister only.


According to White Mountain, this happens because the ice brine gets too cold. The procedure they recommend is as follows:
After you put your cream can in the tub and attach your crank or motor, fill the tub with ice and run for two minutes to cool the cream can. Then, put two cups of rock salt on top of the ice and let it continue to crank. After the ice level has dropped 2-3 inches, put more ice on top and another two cups of rock salt and let it continue to crank until the ice cream is done.

I bought a used taylor ice cream machine. It is model number 8756-27 and it was manufactured in 1987. It is a water cooled machine ... Do you know how much water it uses daily?


You use ICE, not water and then rock salt is added over the ice to lower the temperature for making the ice cream.

The salt hastens the melting of the ice and thus lowers the temperature.

Ice cream maker keeps locking up


I am not sure what your situation is exactly, but I think you are talking about it locks from turning while in ice... I suggest for you to put in rock salt around the cylinder to keep the ice from forming around the cylindar and so locking it from turning. Is that the issue? thanks,

I have no instructions with my ice cream maker


If you can locate a model number (probably on the bottom), you can get an instruction manual from the parts department at sears.com.
Generally, you really only need a recipe (thousands on line), (preferably) crushed ice and rock salt. The ice is packed around the canister and then drop the rock salt liberally on top of it. The rock salt lowers the thaw temperature creating better removal of heat from the ice cream brew. You will probably have to add more ice and salt as the original depletes.
It's hard to find a commercial product that equals your home-made ice cream. :-)

I bought a used Rival model 8220 2 qt. ice cream maker. Is the dasher supposed to turn or just the canister? With my old one, the dasher turned.


The canister locks down and the dasher moves the ice cream. Adding too much salt will freeze the motor up.

New rivl icecream maker


Hi Sunshine!

Here is a recipe from: http://recipes.lovetoknow.com/wiki/Category:Ice_Cream_Recipes

Ingredients for Vanilla Ice Cream, No. 2
  • 3 cups cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
Instructions
  1. No. 2 Recipe, Whip two cups of the cream; to the thin part that drains from the whip add 1 cup of cream and 1 cup of milk, the sugar, and scald thoroughly.
  2. Cool and add the flavoring.
  3. Freeze till soft mush, then add the whipped cream.
  4. Turn the freezer as fast as possible for five minutes; remove dasher, repack and let stand thirty minutes before serving.
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
