i needed good, homemade, ice cream STAT! i live in kuwait and couldn't find an ice cream maker anywhere! buying pre-made ice cream here is hit or miss since it gets frozen/refrozen so many times it tastes horrible. i've never had an issue with hamilton beach products and you can't beat the price! yes, it's loud but that's the case with most ice cream makers; i just put a rolled up towel around the top like my grandma used to do and it cuts down on the noise. the instruction manual doubles as a recipe book and i have made the old fashioned vanilla ice cream (from a custard) and it was so yummy!

I bought this unit after giving up on the crummy frozen-bowl type of maker (see my other reviews). I looked around quite a bit and settled on the Hamilton Beach because of the reviews and the super-cheap price. I can't believe what some of the hand-cranked machines go for! As a kid, we had the kind with the wooden tubs, so I knew how much they leaked. Anyway, this unit has been everything I'd hoped for. Yes, it is lightly built and could be damaged easily. I'm pretty easy on equipment, so that shouldn't be a problem. It works like it should. At least I knew what to expect from my previous machine. You still should chill your ingredients and shouldn't expect the ice cream to be firm until it's been stored in the freezer overnight. I like the large capacity so that I can add a lot of good chunky stuff (heath bars, oreos, almonds, etc.) Couldn't do that with the little 1-quart unit. The motor has a good fan on it and doesn't overheat EVER! I didn't really think it was all that loud. I use it in the kitchen sink for convenience and the noise wasn't any louder than the dishwasher. Great machine for the money.

We are satisfied with the unit. We have only used it a few times, but it does what we hoped it would do: make ice cream. It is not as solid as one that we had for many years. It is made of plastic and very thin metal, but then you get what you pay for, and it does make ice cream. Not really sure how long it will last.

This new ice cream maker is wonderful--much easier and faster than the ones we used when I was a kid growing up. And after a thorough search and price comparison, I found the cost was much less than many other brands and types of ice cream makers. My new husband's family (who had never had homemade ice cream before) enjoyed my old family recipe for fresh fruit sherbet at a big family celebration for two birthdays in the family soon after I bought it. Needless to say, it was a very big hit! As they said, they never knew what they had been missing!!

well...the reviews didn't lie - it's LOUD! you may want to put it in a room and close the door. also, it requires A LOT of ice - we actually had to go out in the middle of making ice cream to buy more ice. my very first try at making ice cream turned out slightly gritty and i don't know why. i used real products - whole cream, half and half, etc. i will try again - maybe a smaller batch next time. oh btw - we made peach ice cream but our peaches weren't sweet so i had to add a lot more sugar than i wanted to.

This is a great ice- cream maker. I have used it several times with good results each time. I don't have a bad thing to say about it. I am happy I bought it. For the money you can't go wrong buying it.
