KitchenAid's Ice Cream Maker Attachment Is On Sale Just In Time for July 4th Weekend
Now is the time to give homemade ice cream a try!
With summer in full swing, there's never been a better time to hone your homemade ice cream making skills. There are many products to choose from, including an interactive ice cream maker that churns your dessert while you play. But, if you already have a KitchenAid stand mixer, your easiest route to homemade ice cream is most likely with an additional attachment.
Right now, you can save $20 on an ice cream maker attachment for your stand mixer — that's a 25% savings. This attachment includes an insulated mixing bowl and churning paddle. The double-walled freezer bowl turns out two quarts of ice cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet in just 20 to 30 minutes, and the paddle mixes and scrapes the batter with the help of a rotating dasher.
Shoppers say this ice cream attachment is easy to use, and churns out delicious results. Almost every reviewer suggests keeping both the bowl and paddle in the freezer before you're ready to start mixing.
One five-star review says this gadget makes, "The best ice cream! I gave this attachment to myself for Christmas this year, and wow, does it work like a charm. I used the vanilla recipe in the booklet that came with the unit and chilled everything. After assembling everything and pouring in the mixture, it was less than 20 minutes and I had the creamiest and best-tasting vanilla ice cream I've ever made. It was terrific!"
Once you master the basics (like vanilla ice cream), get creative with flavor combinations and add-ins. Add in blueberries from your backyard, mint from your herb garden or that pound cake that's been hiding in the back of your freezer. Whether you end up with a sophisticated flavor like Raspberry Buttermilk Sherbet or an innovative ice cream sandwich mash-up, the frozen dessert options are truly endless. Plus, what better way is there to spend a hot day at home?
