We all scream for the Ice Cream Maker by Koji! Ice cream is right in every way, but it tastes even better when it's homemade. The Koji Ice Cream Maker uses tried and true traditional ice cream making methods (with rock salt and ice) to make 4 quarts of ice creamy goodness. Setup and cleanup is so simple, it's even easier than just licking the bowl. Plus, with a motorized electric crank, you'll keep your scooping arm fresh!
Complete garbage. First off, it's noisier than a construction site. Second, despite running for 4 hours the ice cream never gets past the consistency of a thick sauce. I am a professional chef, and I can assure you it's not due to user error. Thirdly, because the bucket is made out of plastic and not metal, the ice melts EXTREMELY quickly and you constantly have to refill it. Every batch I've tried to make has needed at least 2 10lb bags of ice for 1q of ice cream, and it still has never frozen completely or even to the consistency of a frozen yogurt. And because it doesn't freeze properly in the machine, it freezes VERY icy/grainy after you pop it in the freezer, no matter the recipe you've used. Trash. It's only $40 for a reason...you truly do get what you pay for. And this machine makes garbage inedible ice cream that, in the end, winds up costing about 5 times more than picking up a pint of talenti.
I have used this ice cream maker 6 different times with different recipes and still never gets to ice cream consistency. Wouldn't recommend purchase. My next ice cream maker will have the wooded bucket ( the old fashioned)
This ice cream maker works great for the price and my ice cream’s came out so good I’ll probably never buy from the store ever again. This all came about due to that girl licking ice cream in the store and putting it back but I’m glad I did I had a chance to find out I can make my own ice cream
The Koji ice cream maker is basic and seems to compare well with past ice cream makers I've used such as Rival. The round shape of the bucket makes it easier for the canister to turn and to mix the ice and salt compared to some of the rectangular oval shaped buckets. The plastic isnt heavy duty or lightweight. It's probably midgrade. Motor isn't too loud and power seems adequate. There is an on/off switch. Not sure if there is an auto shut off to prevent burnout so keep an ice on it. Only had it for a couple weeks, but so far so good. Seems to work well. Price was great.
The instructions don't include any recipes so I used the recipe for an old machine that made 2 quarts and doubled the ingredients for this machine. It would be nice if the aluminum container was premarked with fill-to lines for mix so we did this prior to making the first batch. It took about 1.5 10lb bags of ice and about 50 minutes before the motor stalled as its supposed to when the mix is done. I knew we were getting close when I noticed frost forming on the outside of the plastic bucket.
I had great hope for this with all the positive reviews. I've been making ice cream for 45 years. The last one I had finally rusted out. This one ran really slow. It took over 3 hours to make the ice cream and I went through an entire large bag of ice and a 1/2 box of rock salt and a container of regular salt. It never quite froze. Also, as soon as you took off the motor, the canister started floating so you had to grab it really fast. It ran very quietly but it was turning really slowly so I think there was something wrong with the motor. It is being returned.
