More and more people have either bought this Lickety Split Ice Cream Maker from eBay or at a yard, tag or garage sale. Typically, they do not have the instructions included with it. Luckily, I happen to have this very ice cream maker.

01 of 05I have fond memories of my mother making ice cream in this Lickety Split Ice Cream Maker. The best thing about it was that should could make two different flavors of ice cream at one time. You should end-up with 2 quarts of ice cream.
Ever since I mentioned my ice cream maker, tons of people have asked for the directions. Until late, I've emailed them a copy. I figured this might be the best way to get them.
I do have a couple of tips you won't find in the actual directions.
First of all,... be prepared. This machine is very noisy. My daughter loves the ice cream, but can't stand to be around when it is running.
Second, my Lickety Split Ice Cream Maker has a slow leak. I place mine on a big plastic tray. This makes clean-up so much easier.
You'll find more of my personal tips on each page.

To get ready to make ice cream, you should combine your ice cream ingredients and refrigerator them for 4 or more hours. I put mine together the night before or after I'm done with the breakfast dishes.

Before You Begin Making the Ice CreamBefore you even set-up your machine, be sure you have room in your freezer for the ice cream. I like to put the containers I plan to use in the freezer while the ice cream is being made.
Don't know what containers to use? I recycle my yogurt containers. Ice Cream keeps better in a container that is narrow in width and tall in height. There's less icing that way. Of course, it probably won't matter how long it keeps. Homemade ice cream rarely lasts a few days in the freezer as it gets... eaten pretty quickly.

Once I've got my machine all set-up. I fill a large mixing bowl with ice and get out my container of regular salt. (Yes, another reason this machine is so special. It uses regular salt, not rock salt.) Start the machine and pour in the ice. Next drizzle the salt all around, all over the ice. Now, just set back and watch your machine.

You've Just Made Homemade Ice Cream Using the Lickety Split Ice Cream Maker
Unplug your machine and carefully remove the containers. This is where it gets a little messy. Disassemble the machine as directed in the instruction booklet. Wipe off any residual salt that remains on the containers before putting the ice cream into the containers. Place your containers in the freezer as soon as possible. This will help finish the freezing process.
Lastly, enjoy! You'll find that a small amount of homemade ice cream goes a long way.
Don't forget not only can you make ice... cream in the Lickety Split Ice Cream Maker, but you can make sherbets, frozen yogurt, ices, gelato and sorbets in there too.
