Works pretty well

Comments about Rival 1.5 Quart Gel Canister Ice Cream Maker:

Before I could use this machine more than twice, the top plastic "lid" was dropped and it developed a nice long crack. However, it's still usable, just not pretty, and it's now more fraglie. I'm planning on keeping an eye out for a used one at the thrift store, so I can get a new lid. (And having a second frozen cup would be a great thing, too.) A couple of times the frozen bowl must not have been cold enough, and the ice cream mixture never turned into ice cream. But the rest of the times, after a new spot in the freezer, it worked great! We have only made ice cream in it, but this summer we'll try making sorbet and possibly frozen yogurt. It's easy to clean and you have to admit looks pretty cool.

Easy to use

Comments about Rival 1.5 Quart Gel Canister Ice Cream Maker:

I received the Rival GC9155 Ice cream maker as a birthday present last year. It is very easy to use and the ice cream I've made in it has come out tasting fantastic.

There are a few problems I have with this ice cream maker. The first being that after I'd only used it twice, the seal came away and it has leaked ever since. The seal fits between the 2 bowls that attach together to make one big bowl for mixing the ice cream in. Without the seal in place, the ice cream mixture drips down inside the bottom of the machine. 

Another problem is the area where you are supposed to pour the ice cream mix through is way too small and awkwardly placed. Because the ice cream mixture has to be poured in while the machine is already started, the ice cream mixture always ends up dripping down the side and making a bit of a mess.

The last problem is storage of the freezer bowls. They take up quite a bit of freezer space. But they do a good job of freezing the ice cream quickly.
