When it comes to making homemade ice cream you have several options for an ice cream maker. Depending on how often you and your family like to make up a batch of fresh ice cream you can spend under a hundred to several hundred dollars.
If you make a small batch of homemade ice cream once or twice a year you can probably get by just fine with one of those imported freezers being sold in discount stores for under a hundred dollars.
However, if you’re a routine homemade ice cream family or you make a lot of ice cream for social functions purchasing too cheap may end up with a wasted batch and disappointment.
In order to sell those imports so cheaply manufactures use plastic parts and low end components to maintain their profit margins.
To step up a several notches White Mountain Freezers are a long time popular mainstay. They come in 4 and 6 qt hand crank or electric models.
If you really want to step up into a USA made freezer with larger sizes the Amish made Country Freezers are made with all USA parts. They range in size from 1 pint all the way up to a 20 qt 5 gallon size.
A new emerging Amish made freezer called the Immergood uses a fiberglass tub and heavy duty stainless parts. It currently is only available in a 6 qt in hand crank or equipped with a White Mountain or Country electric motor. A 8 qt Immergood with a USA made motor is in development for 2015.
