I bought this product 2 weeks ago. Should have read the reviews before I spent the money. Had the Dowling in a deep freezer for 2 weeks, added mix that had been in the fridge for 24 hours. Didn't freeze at all. Thank God the department store said I had 60 days to return. Guess what I am doing this weekend.. getting a different brand maker with higher ratings. Don't waist your time and money buying this maker.

Love it and you can make ice cream, frozen yogurt or sherbet. I like that it comes with a booklet with a lot of recipes to try. Works great. I had originally gotten a Hamilton Beach red 1.5 ice cream maker and took it back because it had nothing to hold the paddle down as it churned so the ice cream could slowly push it up. This one locks into place and once the ice cream gets to thick the paddle just starts changing directions. Got one for us and one for my mom!

I have never owned an ice cream maker but always enjoyed home made ice cream when I went to other peoples houses. The gel canister seems simpler than a traditional machine that requires ice and salt. Two tricks you need to know to make good ice cream with this machine: 1. The canister must be frozen a long time in advance of using it. Rather than trying to plan ahead, it's best just to store the canister in your freezer. Then it's always ready to use. 2. The liquid ice cream needs to be very cold before you put it in this machine. On my first batch, I only left the liquid in the refrigerator for 2 hours. This is not cold enough. When I put it in this machine, it would not solidify no matter how long I ran it. It came out with the consistency of a milk shake. For my second batch, I refrigerated the liquid for 3 hours, then put it in the freezer for 1 hour before making ice cream. Your refrigerator is probably between 34 and 38 degrees. By putting the liquid in the freezer, you can get it down to near freezing. This makes a huge difference. Within 10 minutes, the ice cream was so thick the motor started reversing directions just like the instructions say it should. I was 100% pleased with this second batch. The consistency was very thick, just like you would expect ice cream to be. A word of caution: The plastic parts of this machine are not safe on the bottom rack of the dishwasher. The clear plastic chute warped from the heat of the dishwasher heating element. It should be OK on the top rack. I'm giving this four stars because the top of the machine doesn't lock to the bottom as well as it should. When the ice cream turned solid and the motor started reversing, the top unlocked on it's own due to the torque of the motor. I'll probably put some tape on it next time to make sure it's locked into place better. Also, it seems like a bad idea to have the chute wide open while this is running because it let's room air in. It seems like it would be better if this had a transparent door to keep the room heat out while it's running.

LOVE THIS!! The ingredients to make the ice cream are simple. I keep the internal tub in the freezer. Super easy to use and clean. NO SALT! Makes enough for 2-4 people depending how big each serving is. My sister has one also so we have two running when we have guests over. Added a smidgen of chocolate syrup during the beginning of the cycle and it turned out great! I can't say enough about this. Will probably get one for my daughter for Christmas. The homemade ice cream recipe in the book, when using 1/4 cup of sugar and 10 packets of Sweet-n-Low instead of 3/4 cups sugar, has less cholesterol, less sugar, less fat, everything!!! I use low-fat everything. I generally hate homemade ice cream but this is GREAT!

I have tried several times to make frozen yogurt. It seems to freeze too quickly, and the paddles stops churning. When checking why, the bottom freezes first, making it impossible for the paddle to churn. I have tried changing the ingredients,but I get the same results. Even what did churn is difficult to get out of the machine because it continues to freeze to the sides. Then what I do 'rescue' from it and put into the freezer, turns into a brick, and impossible to eat without letting it thaw some. This machine is hopeless!! No wonder the price has been reduced!

I bought this 4 days ago, followed all the instructions from the manual to set it up but when I switch it on the rotating paddle does not rotate but just vibrates back and fourth and does not turn. I returned it and got another but the new one does the same thing!

I bought this item just a few weeks ago. Tried to make ice cream the next day (after freezing bowl for 24hrs) and it didn't even change the consistency of the liquid. Figured maybe it wasn't frozen all the way, so froze the bowl again for a WEEK before trying to make ice cream again. Followed recipe for easy vanilla ice cream..let it run for 45 minutes, and nothing! Still did not change the consistency of the liquid....so froze it IN THE BOWL for the additional 30 mins..and still not frozen. Soooo disappointed. My kids were really looking forward to homemade ice cream...they are the reason I bought this thing!
