This White Mountain Ice Cream Maker is something I grew up with, and still use to this day. I remember as a child my grandma would always use this machine to make homemade ice cream for our parties. After becoming an adult this was still something I used frequently for birthdays, and other parties. Its very easy to use, nearly anyone can make there own ice cream. It works great, and makes the ice cream rather quickly. It makes just over six quarts for me when I use it, which is more than what the instructions say it makes. The ice cream always comes out tasting great, and everyone seems to love it. I highly recommend using this brand and style of ice cream maker, if you have never done it before. Ease of Cleaning Very easy to clean, no problems at all during cleaning. Capacity For me it usually makes just over six quarts of ice cream per use. This is just a little more than what the instructions say it will make. Design I love the design. It has a great, rustic look to it.
