Yikes! White Mountain Ice Cream Makers have suddenly disappeared

White Mountain Ice Cream freezers once were king of the ice cream makers for centuries ever since they were originally introduced in 1853. Now in 2022 White Mountain has seemed to suddenly stop making ice cream makers-freezers. They haven’t officially announced this but when calling the White Mountain phone number their support staff are telling people that they are no longer being made. This leaves a huge void in the family ice cream maker options for those looking for a mid-range priced ice cream machine as well as parts for existing units.

The Amish ice cream freezers are filling the void left by White Mountain’s sudden departure from the market.

For centuries the Amish also grew up with and enjoyed White Mountain ice cream freezers to make frequent batches of ice cream for their large families.  Like so many other products that became obsolete or less dependable over the years, the Amish began manufacturing reproductions making them stronger and longer-lasting as well as replacement parts to keep what they had going.

Within the past decade, two different Amish companies developed their own brands of Ice Cream freezers to replace White Mountain Freezers. Both started off just making better replacement parts as the quality of the White Mountain parts began becoming less dependable.  Simple things like the tub centers, tub, ears, tub latches, and for the hand crank freezers higher quality USA-made stainless steel gears.  Then followed stainless steel freezer cans and dashers and complete gear frames and motor units.  As the wooden staves on the White Mountain freezer become thinner leaking tubs became a problem so the Amish started making poly-insulated tubs that didn’t leak.

Finally, the Amish companies realized that since they were already making all the parts they might as well make a complete ice cream freezer and so Lifetime and Immergood Ice Cream Freezers were born.

Immergood has also developed an ice cream freezer that operates off popular tool battery packs making it very popular for those who frequent picnics and camping adventures. Most who are outdoor adventurers already own a Dewalt, Makita, or Milwaukee tool battery-powered drill with battery packs and a charger, so it is a natural fit.

Now with White Mountain Freezers no longer available consumers are finding nothing between the small plastic ice cream makers being sold in discount stores and these Amish-made brands. During the pandemic, the Amish companies couldn’t keep up with the demand and even in 2022, there is often a wait for some of the electric models. 

You will likely pay twice to three times as much for one of the Amish brands that you may have paid for a White Mountain unit 5-10 years ago. However, inflation would have also increased the price on the White Mountain products.  At the end of 2021 those who still had a stock of the White Mountain units set premium prices. At that point, you would have been ahead to purchase one of the Amish brands because of the better all USA-made quality. The Amish build things to last and be passed down to the next generation.

Cottage Craft carries the Amish ice cream freezers-makers in both hand crank and electric models. They are also one of the main referrals for White Mountain parts as people call the White Mountain number looking for replacement parts.

Homemade Wholesome Buckwheat/ Sweet Potato Dog Biscuits for dogs with grain allergies

Cottage Craft Works offers an assortment of Amish Organic flours and grains to meet a variety of needs. Buckwheat is a favorite for Gluten-free diets because it is a fruit seed and not a grain. Despite its name, it has no relation to wheat and is actually closer related to rhubarb!

In addition, it is high in fiber and protein as well as containing many health-boosting nutrients such as lysine, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, selenium, manganese, and vitamin B. It also contains heart-healthy omega-3.

Buckwheat can be beneficial for managing diabetes by helping to reduce blood glucose levels. It has also been found to reduce cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure!

All of these benefits translate to our canine friends as well. In fact, as more research is coming out that legumes such as peas, lentils, and chickpeas can have negative effects on dogs, many dog food brands have been searching for alternatives and have found a great option in buckwheat.

Here is a recipe for Buckwheat/Sweet Potato Dog Treats for dogs who have grain allergies, sent to us by a customer.


1 Cup Mashed Sweet Potato

2 1/2 Cups Buckwheat Flour

1/4 Cup Water

2 Eggs

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.

Mix Buckwheat Flour, Sweet Potato, Water & Eggs in a large bowl, until a dough forms. Turn dough out on a well Buckwheat floured surface & roll out dough to approximately 1/2 inch thick. Cut out shapes with a doughnut cutter or other item. Place cutouts on a large cookie sheet using parchment paper. Bake until crisp or until treats just start to smoke. About 35-45 mins depending on your oven. Cool for at least 10 mins before feeding to dogs.

DO NOT add sugar to this mix, there is plenty of sugar in sweet potatoes for use as dog treats.

If you are making these for "Jawbreaker" snacks for human consumption, you can add brown sugar and spices such as cinnamon, ginger, or pumpkin pie seasoning to taste and substitute water with applesauce, for a long-lasting trail snack. These can be frozen and kept indefinitely and used as needed.

Reduce cooking time for a softer treat.

Best manual sewing machine lift

 Best manual sewing machine lift

Popular Rudersberg German sewing machine airlift used in our Amish custom sewing cabinets. This is the same German-made heavy-duty lift that will hold up to 50 lbs. for the larger machines. Others were selling this lift for much more and can no longer get them from the original German distributor. 

Sewing machine airlift is widely being used in sewing cabinets made in custom woodworking shops across the country. Our Amish hardware distributor orders them directly from the German manufacturer in large container quantities allowing us to have them available and offer them at such a great discount.
