Leaks Blue Fluid

By Jarrett Kerpan

from Birmingham, AL

Comments about KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

I bought this for my wife and we used it that first summer about 3 times. We got it back out this summer and the first time we started using it, it started leaking blue fluid in the freezer. This seems to be a very common issue with this device. I would advise anyone not to purchase this ice cream maker as it will probably only function a few times before it breaks.

Comments about KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

We have used it twice so far - once for gelato & once for ice cream. This is our 3rd ice cream maker but this one does the best job of mixing by far - excellent product!

Finally... Home Made Ice Cream

By Hummm.... IceCream!!!!

from Las Vegas, NV

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

I love the ice cream attachment. When I received it as my birthday present the only part that did not fit my mixer was the drive shaft. Contacted KitchenAid and sent it to me at no cost. Now it fits my Pro Line 7.

I made multiple ice creams already and works perfectly. I read other reviews that mention the bowl is leaking. What I do with mine is, first I do not get my freezer to the coldest settings, as mention in the instructions. The gel in the bowl freezes great, since it is the same type of gel use for the gel packs and it stays cold for hours outside of the freezer. Second, I do not get the bowl to touch the ice, I have a plastic mixing bowl and I put the ice cream bowl inside. And last, the instruction said when you are done with the bowl is to wash it in warm water. Here, what I do is I let the ice cream bowl to be at room temperature and the ice melted away and on them I wash it, otherwise you get the plastic to expand too fast and it will leak. I never store it in the freezer has mention in the instructions, I only put it in the freezer when I plan to make ice cream. To this day, no leaks!!!

Hope those tips can help.

Blue fluid stains grout! Watch out!

By Divers Wife

from California

Comments about KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

I already posted a review, but it never showed up here, so I'm going to post a second review and ask a few questions of other reviewers as well.

I rec'd this item as a birthday gift and was overjoyed! I got about three batches of ice cream out of it and put it away for the winter. It was stored in its box, which has been destroyed by blue fluid. The grout under the box is stained blue and is really tough to get out.

After reading through these reviews, I can see that the leaking is the big problem. My question to other reviewers is where are you finding your leak? I'm attaching a picture of the location of my leak, which is weird because I have literally no idea why this spot would leak as it's not used on my tilt-head mixer.

Read and Follow the Tips

By Messy Molly

from Mesa, AZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

I've used the ice cream attachment once and learned a valuable lesson: reading is fundamental! My mistake was that my batter was too thick and I couldn't figure out how to pour the batter into the mixer while the blade was moving and not make a mess. So, I stopped the mixer after I'd spooned in some of the batter. BIG MISTAKE.

Per the instructions, you MUST NOT STOP the mixer once you've started pouring batter. I tried to restart it and the blade was stuck. I mixed the ice cream by hand intermittently over 30 minutes (which still worked amazingly well because it freezes the ice cream in the bowl).

I rated 4 on "ease of use" because I still can't figure out how to get the batter in the bowl without making a mess.

Another leaker, won't replace this time.

By Amanda

from NJ

Comments about KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

I received one of these as a gift a few years ago and after a short time, it began to leak. I figured it was a fluke and was happy with it up to that point, so I bought a new one without contacting customer service. After a longer time I was again happy with the second one, until I just recently noticed blue leaking from the bottom again. I won't be replacing this one and wasting more money. I'll be researching other brands.

Design Flaw In The Casting, Be Ready For It To Crack & Leak

By TugBoatJody

from Burlington, VT

Comments about KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

My wife and I received the ice cream attachment along with a mixer as a wedding gift. We used the ice cream maker once about 6 months after we got it then put it back in the original box for storage. We moved and pulled it out about a year and a half later and the big bump casting part of the outer bowl was cracked. KitchenAid was not very helpful in dealing with the problem. They basically told me that they knew it is a problem and would offer me %10 off a new one at full retail plus shipping which is still more than any online or box store retailer would charge. Being the tinkerer type I tried to repair the crack before throwing it away. I cut off the casting with a coping saw exposing the crack. I then scuffed the area with a course sanding drum on a dremel tool and put on a coating of JB weld over the crack. It has been in the freezer for 6 months and hasn't come off or leaked. I am happy I was able to repair it but was very disappointed by the corporate response given the track record of this crack happening in the exact same spot for years without a re design of the product or an unconditional warranty exchange.

Disappointed

By Jill

from Hiram, OH

Comments about KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

I have had this attachment for over a year and was really happy with it until it started leaking blue fluid. I guess my coworkers are no longer going to enjoy frozen treats. Very disappointing!

Works well, when it works

By Nick

from Guam

Comments about KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my wife, and it worked great for awhile. Recently, it's developed the 'leaking blue fluid' issue similar to others'. Worked well other than that, but will likely have to discontinue use as fluid cleanup is nasty and freezing ability is compromised.

Works like it's supposed to

By Vintage Cook Jenny

from Fort Wayne, IN

Comments about KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment:

I've had my ice cream attachment for two years now, and it makes good ice cream. The result is a little soft, more like soft serve than hard ice cream when it's made, but it hardens up in the freezer -- *and* I use a no-cook, minimum-ingredient recipe due to allergies (milk, heavy cream, vanilla, sugar). It can be used every 24 hours or so if it goes right back into the freezer after it's used and cleaned, so it can make some very happy ice cream lovers. We use this to make ice cream all year long.
