I scream, you scream, we all … well, you know the rest. The KitchenAid® 2-qt. Ice Cream Maker Attachment turns your KitchenAid stand mixer into a dessert lover’s dream. Make homemade vanilla, chocolate or strawberry ice cream -- and those are just the options if you want to be boring. If you can dream it, you can ice cream it. This KitchenAid attachment can help you whip up classics like chocolate chip or butter pecan, or you can experiment with exotic flavors such as bourbon-maple, salted caramel or basil-ginger. Try your hand at Italian gelato, sorbets and frozen custards. If you’re not feeling particularly creative, easy-to-use recipes are included with the instructions.
Making your own ice cream is fun for the whole family, and because you made it yourself, you can be sure that there are no additives, preservatives or ingredients you can’t pronounce in your sweet treats. The industry’s largest frozen mixing bowl is large enough to whip up 2 quarts of any frozen dessert. That’s more than enough soft serve for the whole family and then some. The dasher does all of the hard work of churning right in the mixing bowl, so there is no need to tire out your forearms to keep the batter from icing up. The included adapter ring allows the bowl to fit tilt-head as well as bowl-lift KitchenAid mixers and cleanup is super easy (even if you don’t have anyone to lick the dasher …).
Best Used For:
Homemade ice creams, sorbets, gelatos and custards.
Why We Love It:
Because let’s face it, everyone loves ice cream, and creating your own is a great way to make a splash at your next party.

An ice cream maker was not a necessity in our kitchen, but we thought it would be a fun addition for our kitchenaid HD mixer. It has handled ice cream and gelato well, taking about half an hour or so of mixing. We just store the bowl in the freezer for the next time we want to use it. One of the benefits of the bowl attachment is not adding an extra appliance around the house that takes up room and has another motor that might break.
A couple reviewers noticed a clicking noise after their ice cream had been mixing for a while. That's a handy feature that built in to the device. Once the ice cream gets thick enough, the mixer paddle will start to audibly click, letting you know that it should be done.
I purchased the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment to pair with my KitchenAid Artisan mixer. Based on reviews I read here and elsewhere, I chose this model over a stand-alone ice cream maker because I anticipated it would make reasonably good ice cream and would relieve me from purchasing another countertop appliance. Overall, I am pleased with the purchase. It took me some time to get used to, but after making three recipes, I got the hang of it.
The device performed as advertised, producing soft-serve ice cream in about 30 minutes. I found that 2-quart recipes worked best, because these recipes filled the freeze bowl. Recipes for smaller quantities worked fine and froze more quickly (about 20 minutes), but I think the texture suffered (perhaps due to the quick freeze time).
You do have to make sure the freeze bowl is very cold; I found that freezing it for 24-48 hours at the coldest freezer setting provided about 25-30 minutes of working time to make the ice cream. After 30 minutes, the freeze bowl reached the temperature of the batter (i.e., the ice cream ingredients in the freeze bowl) and letting it run beyond that time only resulted in melting of (rather than freezing of) the batter.
While running, the mixer is fairly loud and my mixer made some noises that suggested it might not have enough horsepower to do the job, but so far all has gone well. I would be curious to see if the attachment works more quietly or differently on the more powerful mixers that KitchenAid makes.
The recipes included with the attachment were very disappointing. For one, the custard recipes, if followed to the letter, will fail to produce properly formed custard. Also, I thought the proportions were not as flavorful as those in recipes I found elsewhere on the Internet.
I didn't have any trouble setting up the dasher (i.e., the ice cream
Keep this in the freezer- then, it will always be ready when you are. Make sure the mixture you pour in is very cold. Before turning on the machine, wrap saran wrap around the top to help keep the cold temperature of your mixture. If your kitchen is even slightly warm while this is trying to freeze your mixture -you will end up with slush. The key is to place this in the coldest room of your home (mine is the laundry room with the dryer off, of course). Let it continuously run for at least 25 minutes and don't peek under the saran wrap or Glad wrap. The Silver Spoon cookbook has great gelato recipes for this machine and other ice cream makers. I wish they sold the attachment for $50 -that would make it a great value and extra nice accessory for one's Kitchen Aid. The Krups Glaciere is also very good if you have room in your kitchen pantry or closet for one more kitchen gadget. Otherwise, purchase this when on sale and always keep in the freezer.
