PARTS & ASSEMBLY
Take the 6-QUART ICE CREAM MAKER out of the box and wash the Bucket, Canister, Lid, and all accessories (except for Electric Motor and plug) with warm, soapy water. Carefully wipe down the Electric Motor with a slightly damp, non-abrasive cloth or sponge. NEVER immerse the Electric Motor in water. Dry thoroughly. Now you are ready to enjoy creamy, delicious ice cream from your 6-QUART ICE CREAM MAKER. HOW TO OPERATE
HOW TO OPERATE
- First, find a stable surface near an electrical outlet before starting. Make sure the cord is away from any water source. It is acceptable to use an extension cord if needed.
- Chill ice cream Canister until cold to the touch.
- Choose your favorite recipe and prepare the ice cream mixture per recipe instructions.
- Pour chilled ice cream mixture into the chilled Canister. Make sure that you do not fill the Canister more than ²/3 full, as the mixture will expand during the freezing process.
- Insert the Dasher into the Canister and make sure the bottom of the Dasher is properly aligned in the center of the Canister.
- Place the Lid on the Canister.
- Place the Canister into the bottom center of the Bucket.
- Slide the two rectangular ends of the Electric Motor into the two rectangular holes on the rim of the bucket.
- Before adding ice, be sure that the ice you put into the bucket is broken into small, rough pieces. You may use a mallet or hammer to break into smaller pieces if needed. For each batch of ice cream, expect to use 1-2 medium bags of ice.
- Fill the Bucket with a small layer of ice (about 6 cups) evenly distributed around the base of the Canister.
- Cover the first layer of ice evenly with a thin layer of rock salt (about ½ cup). Regular table salt or kosher salt can also be used. Salt is necessary for the freezing process. It may take a total of 2 – 4 cups of salt to freeze the ice cream mixture properly (1 lb. salt = 2 cups / 2 lbs. salt = 4 cups). The more salt that you use, the better.
- Repeat steps 10 and 11, layering the ice and salt until it reaches the top of the Canister. Stop when the top of the mixture reaches the bottom of the drainage hole on the side of the Bucket. Adding more ice may cause the mixture to leak out of the drainage hole.
- As the ice melts down 2 to 3 inches, you may add more ice and more rock salt to the Bucket.
- Plug the power cord attached to the Electric Motor into an outlet to turn the unit on.
- As the Canister turns, stir and mix the salt and ice together every 10-15 minutes, or as needed, while the ice cream maker is in use.
- Turn off and unplug Electric Motor once the ice cream has churned for about 30 minutes, or once the Electric Motor has stopped. If the motor stops prematurely, turn it off, break up any ice blockages, and start again.
- With one hand on the Canister Lid, remove the Electric Motor from the Bucket. Be careful as the Canister may float in the ice water.
- Clear the ice and salt away from the top of the Canister. Wipe carefully to remove the salt and water before removing the cover.
- Take the Dasher out and scrape off excess ice cream with a spatula.
- Transfer ice cream to a freezer-safe container and freeze, or serve straight from the Canister. Lid and Lid Cap is included for the option of storing the Canister in the freezer.
NEVER leave the unit unattended while operating.Taste Finished ice cream will always taste less sweet than the initial mixture. You may adjust the amount of sugar in the recipe to suit your taste. Artificial sweeteners may be used in place of sugar. Use the following measurements for reference:
- 1 packet of sweetener = 2 tsp. of sugar
- 6 packets of sweetener = ¼ cup of sugar
- 8 packets of sweetener = ¹/3 cup of sugar
- 12 packets of sweetener = ½ cup of sugar
Texture To ensure that ice crystals do not form in the ice cream mixture, do not stop the churning process at any time until the ice cream is ready. If the texture of ice cream is hard or grainy, make sure that you do not have too much rock salt in the ice water. Too much salt can cause the mixture to freeze too quickly, which can also cause ice crystals to form in the ice cream.Consistency Homemade ice cream generally has a thick, milkshake texture. If you prefer a thicker or firmer consistency try one of the following:
- Remove the Dasher and place the Lid and Cap on the Canister. Place Canister in the freezer to harden.
- Remove the Dasher and add more ice to the ice-salt mixture. Cover with a towel and let sit until ice cream becomes firm.
- Too little salt may inhibit the freezing of the ice cream mixture. Try adding more salt.
- Recipes that call for alcohol may inhibit the freezing process. Be sure to add any alcohol during the last few minutes of the freezing cycle.
Jamming If the Dasher gets jammed or the Electric Motor stops prematurely, try the following:
- Ice may cause a blockage in the Wood Bucket. Turn off the Electric Motor and make sure that the ice is broken up into small pieces.
- Make sure that the consistency of the ice cream is not thicker than soft serve ice cream or the Dasher may get stuck.
- Ice Cream recipes that include hard ingredients like nuts or chocolate chips may cause the Dasher to become lodged in the Canister. DO NOT add hard ingredients until the churning process is done.
- DO NOT stop the churning process until ice cream is finished. Stopping in the middle of the process can cause the ice cream to harden and restrict the movement of the Dasher.
- Add up to one cup of cold water to the ice-salt mixture to speed up the freezing process.
- DO NOT operate the unit longer than required. If after 30 minutes the mixture has not yet achieved the slush consistency or has thawed again, do not continue. Possible reasons for mixture not chilling or freezing:
- The Canister was not cold enough. Try adding more ice and salt. Salt is a critical part of the freezing process and you will need plenty of salt added to the ice for the ice cream to freeze properly.
- The mixture was too warm. Make sure that the ingredients that you add are chilled and not warm, lukewarm or of room temperature before adding to the Canister.
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
- Make sure the Electric Motor is turned off and the unit is unplugged.
- Remove Electric Motor and wipe with a slightly damp, non-abrasive cloth. NEVER immerse the Electric Motor in water or any other liquid.
- Wash Bucket in warm, soapy water to thoroughly remove all saltwater residue. Dry thoroughly.
- Wash Canister, Lid, and Dasher in warm, soapy water and dry thoroughly. DO NOT replace Lid until the Canister is completely dry.
- DO NOT use harsh or abrasive cleaners.
- DO NOT place Canister or any other parts in a dishwasher. Hand washes only.
- DO NOT freeze the Canister when it is wet.
The 6-QUART ICE CREAM MAKER makes rich, creamy ice cream anytime! Try these delicious recipes and tips:
- To reduce the risk of salmonella poisoning caused by raw eggs, heat mixtures with eggs to a temperature of 160° F, but DO NOT bring to a boil. You may also use pasteurized eggs in place of raw eggs.
- Be sure to add ice cream mixture to the Canister and chill for 30 minutes prior to use.
