      Does anyone else use a Donvier? That's the one you keep in the freezer and it makes ice cream in just a few minutes. I love it!

        White Mountain is the only way to go. You can order one at your nearest True Value Hardware. http://store.rivalproducts.com/estore/product.aspx?CatalogId=5&CategoryId=1180&ProductId=433

          Don't even bother. I've tried them all and the VERY BEST home ice cream maker, short of the super expensive ones is the KRUPS.
          Can usually be found for $59.95. Even less on Ebay.
          The secret is in their paddle design. It makes the creamiest and smoothest ice cream in 25 minutes.

            Actually, I like my little Cuisinart, which is pretty close to your Krups. It, too, makes smooth ice cream in about 20-25 minutes. I froze some fresh peaches not too long ago. We will have peach ice cream with our Thanksgiving dinner, maybe some pumpkin, too.

              Williamsburger, I have been to Lehman's store out here in Ohio, in the Amish country. It is awesome. They have absolutely everything including those beautiful retro kitchen ranges that are electric but look like coal stoves. There is a whole room full of nothing but kerosene lamps, both original and electrified. If any of you ever get the chance, go there just to look, it's worth the trip.

                Sounds like a great treat. Enjoy!

                  Taken from the Lehman's page:
                  "Zinc alloy gears, extra heavy seamless stainless steel can, rustproof manganese bronze housing (with grease fitting)"
                  Sounds more like a 4X4 truck than an ice cream maker. I don't know about you, but I don't keep a grease gun in my kitchen.

                    Oh how I loved "hand cranked" ice cream. I don't remember it being smooth but I don't care about that! Nothing else compared to that... plain 'ole vanilla if memory serves me...kinda grainy? sugary? Mmmmm. We used to take turns cranking the handle at family reunions and one of my cousins must have dropped the eggs in without whipping them first cuz I remember whole egg yolks in a batch... maybe I dreamt that but I don't think so. ahhh memories I would love to have a machine that could duplicate it too!!
