All you have to do is mix your recipe and pour it in to the ice cream maker, then push the button. In as little as twenty five minutes you can have ice cream.
These ice cream makers are available in a variety of sizes. The most used ones are the one or two quart capacity model, although they are available in a five quart capacity.
