Rated 1 out of 5 by JAM from Very Disappointed We received this as a gift for our wedding and are very disappointed with it. It does not freeze the ice cream well. We keep it stored in a deep freeze and even refrigerate our ice cream mixture prior to making, but it never gets the ice cream thick enough. The final product is not even worthy of calling a milk shake. We have tried different methods each time we use it to see if we can figure out how to get a thicker consistency but have failed every time. I would not recommend this product. My mother in law has a cusininart ice cream maker that makes perfect ice cream. We end up having to borrow it every time our kitchen aid ice cream maker fails.

Rated 1 out of 5 by laberetaux from Does not fit professional 6000 hd model Received this as a Christmas gift, was very excited to use this during the hot summer months! I made my ice cream mixture, and was dismayed to find that the attachment does not fit my KitchenAid mixer. I made sure that this attachment was correct for my KitchenAid model, which it is. The drive assembly is too small to fit onto the drive shaft, either way that I moved the drive assembly it did not fit. This is very disappointing, as well I received the instructions for a completely different ice cream attachment with a different drive assembly. I'm unsure if this was just a packaging error or this just does not fit this KitchenAid model.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Stephen from Quality Issues Leaking Blue Internal Fluid I bought this ice cream maker attachment, and it makes ice cream well. However, after minimal use, it developed a small crack at one of the non-handle flanges and it leaked blue internal fluid in our freezer rendering it useless (see attached image of crack and traces of blue fluid after clean up). We handle the product well, and let it get to room temperature before washing, so it shouldn't be due to a sudden temperature change. Looking at other reviews, the blue fluid leaks pretty consistently for others after a short time too, so it must be a design or manufacturing flaw. Look elsewhere for a long term ice cream maker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Erinp from Loved it at first... I received this for my birthday last July. I LOVED it and it worked wonderfully. I was able to make my favorite flavors that I can't get regularly at my grocery store (bubblegum, chocolate malt, etcetera) but after using it three or four times, I put it away. This summer, I pulled it out a few days ago and froze it, all ready to make some fresh fruit flavored ice creams. Instead what I found was a pool of blue liquid at the bottom of my freezer and an ice cream maker that only half freezes recipes now. I am disappointed that my attachment is now useless after only a few uses. Since it is still leaking the freezing agent, I assume it will soon not even half freeze anything.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DMJU from Bowl stuck on mixer stand after one use! I bought this a week ago and was excited to make fresh ice cream using the strawberries we had just picked. Follow all instructions for assembly and have used an ice cream maker in the past, so comfortable with the process. I have a red Artisan stand and the bowl fit fine, but after I poured in the liquid ingredients and churned it, the bowl would not budge! I attempted to place a hot wet towel around it, sprayed vegetable oil and finally resorted to using a towel and hammer to tap the handles on each side. It finally released but was leaking and cracked (did not think I used that much pressure.) Disappointed and now unable to use again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by raschopf from Bowl Leaking - Blue goo all gone Got this a couple of years ago so we could downsize from having a separate appliance. Worked fairly well for two summers of years. Howerver it never seemed to get the ice cream as solid as the standalone units, you almost always had to freeze the results for an hour. Started leaking coolant after our first use for the summer. Considering all the reviews on this site and others, it looks like it is back to the standalone maker for us. Will NOT be considering a KitchenAid version. We always had great results from our Cuisinart **Note for KitchenAid - Please consider making your attachments as well as you make your mixer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Marco from Made great ice cream--- twice Have enjoyed my Kitchenaid for years now and thought the ice cream maker would be a nice addition, especially when the grandkids came over. Unfortunately, a key component broke after using it only twice.The drive assembly broke. I have two model kitchen aids and the drive assemble did not fit either models according tot he directions. By the third use, the assembly slipped off the dasher bending the shaft and damaging the short wire intending to keep in in place. Am surprised by the poor design and over emphasis on plastic in the design (my original attachments were metal and have lasted me 35+ years).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chefette from Love my KA Ice Cream Maker I have had my KitchenAid mixer for 21 years and I have most of the attachments they make. I wanted the ice cream maker and finally bought it for myself. I have always stored it in my freezer and have never had an issue with it. I do have a large upright freezer an that is where I store it. After use, I wash it and set it on the counter to dry and then back into the freezer it goes. I love it so much that I bought a second one! My only complaint would be if you were making two batches of ice cream, they could not be churned one after the other. This is why I bought the second one.
