Works very well for the price...A lot of fun!


Machine works well...although instructions are lacking a little. Remember to freeze churning tub for 12-24 hrs before use. Where 'mixing' is required to first make mixture....use a power whisk/stab blender or such and your results will be yummy. Plan ahead and do not rush. Do not expect frozen icecream from something that is churned with a plastic paddle! A little extra churn time and an hour or 2 in the freezer after churning will provide icecream worth the effort.

Another excellent ALDI product - works well, easy to clean & produces good quality ice cream


Purchased in December 2021 at ALDI for $39.99.

lovely icecream


makes nice icecream whether book recipe or your own. Measure,too easy to put too much in. Hardest thing is pouring in chilled mix while machine running. Keep bowl in freezer.

Makes perfect ice cream


This machine works perfectly well (especially for the cost) so long as everything is extremely cold (including your ice cream mixture - almost freezing but still liquid when it goes in works best), especially the mixing bowl. I've made 3 amazing batches using recipes I researched myself. Preparation is key, and some patience required; but again, well worth the cost.

Disappointing result same as the other dissatisfied users!


Disappointing !!!! Tried 10 different ways including manufacturers instructions and just runny messy custard, maybe Aldi should have demos for their machines prior to putting them up for sale, not happy

Does Not Make Icecream


The recipes dont work AND even a proper made Creme Anglaise fails to convert to icecream with this machine........I have now tried using it at least 10 times
This machine IS A DUD and Aldi should be fined for selling this product as it is misleading consumers big time

Machine works well


I purchased this machine as a gift for my husband and we have enjoyed using it. While the included recipes do not make icecream, more like cold sticky milk, we have tried several more traditional recipes with great sucsess. If you buy find your own repicies and discard included recipes.

Milk shakes are thicker!


I fail to see how this product is an ice cream maker. After churning my ice cream mixture for 40 mins I was left with a runny milk consistency. Which doesn't in my opinion meet any standards for ice cream whatsoever.
Very disappointing product. You get what you pay for!
Was super excited to receive this as a gift, just hope the giver can return it for a refund

Don't waste your money


Terrible! Tried 4 batches - 2 using the recipe provided with the machine and 2 from the internet. None froze, despite following freezing instructions and extending churning time. Motor overheated and had to wait for it to cool down. Horrified as I bought it for a present for my 6 year old. Christmas ruined, will seek a refund!

Not great


Budget design and crude, cheap motor which is quite loud and gets hot. For $40 I didn't expect a Rolls Royce but usually Aldi appliances are better than expected for the price. I've made about 4 batches with mixed results. During one batch, (followed Ambiano recipe exactly for Mango Ice-cream), the motor got too hot and cut out completely and would not re-start until it cooled down. I'll probably take it back for a refund.
