I was given the Hamilton Beach Half Pint Ice Cream Maker 68550E as a gift. With the Hamilton Beach Half Pint Ice Cream Maker 68550E you can make your own fresh ice cream with healthy ingredients in less than twelve minutes. It comes with two freezer bowls so you can make two different kinds of ice cream treats one after the other, and it even includes a recipe booklet so you can learn how to make an array of different frozen treats. I have made frozen yogurt, and ice cream in here. Every time I use it everything has been delicious, and the great thing is, is that I know exactly what is going into my desert. Performance It makes delicious tasting ice cream every time I use it. I like that I can choose the ingredients that go into it, and the flavor that I want to make. I know what's going into my ice cream, and how healthy or unhealthy it is. I have never had any trouble using this ice cream maker. It's easy to use, easy to store, easy to clean, and an overall great machine. Durability For the inexpensive price, it's pretty durable, and I haven't had any problems with it. I can't see it breaking anytime soon because it's not like I use it every single day. Ease of Use It's very easy to use and makes ice cream in under twelve minutes. The bowls have to be frozen, and then you just add the ingredients by following a recipe from the booklet. It works really fast so I wouldn't walk away from it. Ease of Cleaning You can't put it in a dishwasher, but it is easy to hand wash with hot water and dish soap. The mess comes right off and doesn't stick to the machine, so I have no complaints here. Capacity Each bowl doesn't hold a lot of ice cream, probably only enough for one to two people. But it comes with two bowls and it only takes about 6-12 minutes to make each bowl of ice cream. I mean I usually don't eat a lot of ice cream, so it's enough for me and my boyfriend to share. If you want huge amounts of ice cream then I would buy a bigger ice cream maker, but I like this size. Design It has two different bowls so even though they are small you can still make a decent amount of ice cream. It's a nice design for how inexpensive it is, and it serves it's purpose so I can't complain about it. I think the color is cute as well, and it isn't big or bulky. It fits nicely underneath my cabinet.
