I had been looking at this unit on and off for about a year after seeing it on display in a store and finally took the plunge and got it. This is absolutely the best investment I could have made for my family. I can now make "healthy" lower sugar, cool treats that taste great and stay away from the fattening ice cream we used to eat.
We always keep it stored in the freezer so it's ready to go whenever we want a treat. It's easy to tell when they are frozen and ready to remove and it only takes a few minutes. Have not had any issues getting the pops to come out. The only hint that I can pass along is to lubricate the handle (inside screw) with a little vegetable oil so that when turning the knob to remove the pops it turns so much easier and doesn’t grind metal to metal.
Have been experimenting with lots of new recipes and couldn’t be more pleased with this unit.
