In the package you will get the main Knox 1.5 quart Ice Cream Maker, the mixing blade, detachable bowl, spoon, measuring cup and the plastic lid. You will be able to make home made ice cream, gelato and frozen yoghurt easily and conveniently without having to add any of those preservatives and chemicals found in supermarket bought ice creams but with only the very natural and fresh ingredients available in your fridge. Making frozen desserts and treats is a very simple process with the Knox KN-ICE01 as all you need to do is put the ingredients in the bowl after mixing them and simply set the time at whatever your recipe requires and the machine will handle it for you, will stop automatically when you’re done and go into keep cool mode where it chills the bowl and ice cream automatically so you can serve it for you, your family or guests whenever you want.
Please bear in mind that the “Keep Cool” is activated ten minutes after mixing and the cycle will run every ten minutes up to an hour so that it will not melt and will actually stay at the -7 degree near frozen temperature till you’re ready to eat. You do not have to mix the ingredients thoroughly after preparing and putting them in the bowl as the unit will blend them properly and freeze them slowly with the automatic cooling and mixing. Automatic shut-off feature works when the ingredients get too hard or there is blockage in the motor, as a security measure and potential damage is avoided this way.
Thanks to the integrated compressor, you do not need to freeze the bowl or tub overnight like with some other ice cream makers and although there are several cheaper models on the market, none of them have the very useful compressor and this will have to be one of the lowest cost compressor model ice cream makers. 50 ounce is equal to a bit more than 1.5 quarts which is all right but not very big and will not take up that much space. It makes a little bit of motor noise and none of the parts are safe to be put in dishwasher and all need to be washed and cleaned by hand but its is very easy to do so with the mixer and bowl easily lifted up. According to customers that own the product it makes very good quality ice cream if you are serious about making it properly at home with the natural ingredients. It goes down to the required ice cream making temperature very quickly in just minutes and makes thick and delicious soft serve ice cream enough for 4-5 people in just about half an hour.
