Guide Review - KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment
The KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment is the perfect KitchenAid stand mixer attachment to add to your collection. I've made both ice cream and sorbet with it so far and both were superb.
There's just nothing like the fresh taste you get from homemade frozen treats. It was easy to use too. The night before I put the bowl in my freezer and mixed up my ice cream ingredients and put the mixture in the refrigerator. Prior to making dinner the next day, I attached the Ice Cream Maker Attachment to my KitchenAid stand mixer.
I turned it on and slowly poured the refrigerated mixture in the bowl while it was still on. In approximately 15 minutes I had sorbet or in approximately 25 minutes, I had ice cream. I put the frozen treats in plastic containers and covered them for freezing. By the time we ate them they had been in the freezer for more than 2 hours. Clean-up was easy. I just hand-washed the bowl and attachments. (Only the attachments are dishwasher safe.) Then I placed the attachments and booklets on the bowl for storage.
