Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed from Disappointed I literally purchased this before it went on sale. To my surprise Williams Sonoma would not adjust the price. They just lost a customer. The product itself is great but don’t purchase this item from Williams Sonoma.Date published: 2019-07-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Bella from We All scream for Ice Cream Just received my machine. Took only 3 days. Looks fantastic in my kitchen. It is darker in color then pictured more the color of light silver grey, matches the stainless steel appliances. A bit loud but not all that bad only con is it takes 17 mins to get soft serve sometimes need to add 2 mins more of the noise of compresser for perfect soft serve. Clean up is easy. Machine is of good quality a bit heavy. Very happy with purchase.Date published: 2018-06-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Rcg1 from Nostalgia Frozen Dessert Maker This product is amazing it saved me so much time because it is quick and easy!Date published: 2018-01-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Marks Mom from Great Machine I bought this as a Christmas Present for myself. I already own the Breville Smart Scoop, which I also love. But there’s something about looking at soft serve swirl ice cream coming down into your cup like you’re at a ice cream shoppe. The machine is louder than a normal ice cream maker. It isn’t extremely loud, just louder. I thought for the price it would be made out of more stainless steel. I am pleased with my new toy. The clean up isn’t that messy. Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve and I’m planning on making adults drinks in it.Date published: 2017-12-31Rated 2 out of 5 by Zinaj from Disappointed You don't know until you get it that you can't use whipping cream or heavy cream. Milk or half n half did not so justice to expensive mix. Very loud. Then there's the time factor. I just kept adding time to try to get it to hold any shape. Not satisfactory.Date published: 2017-12-27Rated 5 out of 5 by kitchencasey from My Favorite New Kitchen Tool!! I've wanted my own soft-serve machine ever since I was little and became addicted to it at camp. I recently received this as a gift and have had the BEST time making homemade soft serve. I recently used it at a small dinner party and it was obviously a huge hit. Especially because it works so well and is easy to use. I will definitely be using it at Thanksgiving this year!Date published: 2017-10-30
Can you use Williams Sonoma ice cream mixes with this machine?Hi Holleeska, Yes, you can use our ice cream starters with this machine.Date published: 2019-08-21
How many milkshakes does the machine make at once? And can the frozen product stay in machine for a period of time without being used? Hi Mindy, The Nostalgia Frozen Dessert Maker will make one quart of milkshakes. Depending on the size of the glass will determine how many a quart would make. The unit will keep the milkshake frozen. The unit has a Keep Fresh Mode. In thismode, the compressor turns on for 1 minute, then turns off for 5 minutes.Date published: 2019-08-21
What is the maximum mount of milk fat in the liquid product that can be made into soft serve ice cream.?Hi Mike, Soft serve is generally lower in milk-fat (3% to 6%) than ice cream (10% to 18%) and is produced at a temperature of about −4 °C compared to ice cream, which is stored at −15 °C.Date published: 2019-07-07
Do you have to use special type of ice-cream mix or can you use regular cream to make ice-cream in this machine? Hi DPierce - You should be able to add whatever you want to make your recipes. This item comes with a recipe book to help get you started. Enjoy!Date published: 2019-09-12
