    I remember those things. I thought working that crank was fun for all of five minutes, then it got nasty. The result was not worth the effort.

    Then there’s Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream. It freezes so rapidly that the ice crystals are smaller, resulting in an extra-creamy product. Much faster than the eternal cranking.

    Oh, yeah, I remember those. My grandpa had one, and I was always the designated cranker; which seemed to take some of the pleasure out of consuming the final product.

    I have one of those and it makes great ice cream, however it has an electric motor cause I’m too old to crank it!

    Depends on how many are working on it. When I was a kid the library had an ice cream maker you could check out. With five kids rotating the cranking duties, it was not so bad. …And the result was definitely worth it!

    ajr58: Indeed. Best ice cream I ever had was homemade. I do use an electric church these days, though.

    A friend got one as a wedding gift. Her Grandfather pulled her aside and told her that it’s why her grandmother and him had such a wonderful relationship. Whenever an argument was immanent one of them would set it up and they would talk while taking turns turning the crank and by the time the ice cream was ready they would have talked the issue out and so it was a sweet finish both ways. The grandparents had just celebrated their 60th a few weeks before, talk about great advice.

    I have a new version It has the crank AND a plug for when your arm gets tired.

    Aww, that is great!! Definitely will remember that for when I get married someday. Then again, you’ve heard of the wife putting on weight once married? If my boyfriend and I were living together, making ice cream every time we argued, “debated”, I’d be 400 pounds! Still, eating ice cream has to be way better than “debating” :P

    I recall such a device as well. Tiring but the ice cream tasted good, when you added the sweeteners to it.

    A summer tradition.
    It kept all us kids busy for an hour or so to make it, and 20 minutes to eat it. And I guess an hour of argument over the flavor. Good times. Good memories.
