    We made ice cream in 15 minutes with this ball. My kids took turns rolling it down a grassy hill. They got the satisfaction of making it themselves--and eating it, of course. We will use this all summer long.

    We got this for our son. Works great and keeps little hands (and feet) busy with a treat at the end for all their hard work!

    I haven't made ice cream since I did with mom and dad before I can even remember. So I don't have much to compare it to. I've used this 1 time so far, and it seemed to do a pretty good job. Rolling is the easy part. The messy and more difficult part is getting the frozen ice cream unstuck from the metal of the compartment. It freezes around the outside, but the middle is still very liquidy. But still seems pretty good. I'm happy with it. Next time I might try a bit less than a pint to make it easier for things to not overflow when I unstick the frozen cream from the walls.

    About halfway through the time listed on the instructions, you should open the ball and scrape the ice cream formed around the sides into the liquid in the middle. Otherwise you end up with really hard ice on the outer edges and much in the center.

    I finally tried this out, prior to a camping trip to see if it works. It tended to leak a bit, but not horribly, and was heavier than anticipated (thought you could kick it around like a soccer ball but that was not recommended - likely to crack the plastic frame - and it would probably hurt your foot). Was able to get the kids to help roll it around. After 30 minutes of shaking/rolling, and opening the container to scrape the sides (mix the ingredients as it freezes), it made a pretty good product. I used half-and-half, directions say a heavier cream would take less time. This would be good for camping. Another poster said her kids liked rolling it down a hill. I would recommend that (less work on your part).

    I bought three of these to use in a summer school program. Two of them cracked the first time we used them. I was told they were great fun in a pool, but they did not work in a gym. all it took was a drop on the hard floor and it cracked. after 20 minutes with the two that still held ice cream, they produced milkshakes not ice cream. Handle with care

    My daughter (6) loves filling it up with salt/ice on the one side and the ingredients on the other. We just pick up organic half-and-half at the grocery store, add some chocolate chips and vanilla and she is in heaven 15 minutes later! The ice cream is actually very good and freezes pretty well. We have talked about bringing it out for picnics and the beach too. It really is a fun way to make ice cream!

    I initially bought one for my boyfriend and have since ordered 4 more to give as gifts. The first thing we made was the hot cocoa ice cream and we could not believe how simple it was to make and how good it tasted. Last night we made a fruit sorbet by adding a fruit/vegetable juice that had no added sugar, it was so good. The only drawback is that we wish there was a sleeve to place over the ball so when you use it outdoors it would keep it clean but we think next time we are going to put a plastic bag around it to make cleanup a little easier.
