A lot of fun for kids, and homemade ice cream is pretty tasty! Easy to use, easy to clean. Sure beats the mess of making ice cream in salty, soggy plastic zip bags...

    Bought this for a family gathering, kids had fun 'playing with their food'! Easy to use and clean up, had a few good recipes inside.

    Took this camping. It works. However, it doesn't make much ice cream and the amount it does make is usually pretty soft. I'm sure it depends on the conditions in which you use it. It was a hot summer night when we did it.

    Also... not that great outdoors... the outside of the ball sweats and dirt & grass will stick to it.

    So, if you want to entertain the kids for a few minutes and you don't have an aversion to eating soft ice cream out of a dirty plastic ball... this is the product for you.

    We bought five of the Ice Cream maker balls for a "Bring Your Child to Work Day" event. It was great! With some adult supervision, we were able to make ice cream for a large group of kids with minimal mess (and that is saying something for 50+ kids), and the kids were able to actively participate in the process - adding the ice and salt to the outer ring as well as adding the ingredients to the inner core for the ice cream. The kids sat on the floor, rolled the ball back and forth, took turns shaking it, and had a great time. One word of caution - you definitely need to make sure to check the ice cream often and scoop it off the sides as you go. With five containers going at once, we had a few moments when the lids "froze" closed because we didn't open and scoop as often as we should have; however, a little hot water over the top and some "elbow grease" and they opened right up. Again, great product, fun for all ages and the ice cream was delicious!

    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.
