There are so many great ice cream recipes popping up on pinterest I had to try some. A friend has this machine and was super happy with it so I decided to spend the bucks and try it myself. I can make all the ice cream I want now, perfect size batches for just me and my sweetie to enjoy, different every time. It is easy to use, quiet, and cleans up in a snap too. My ONLY problem is that it takes up a lot of space on my kitchen counter. I never used that toaster much anyway lolo!!
