One of the best parts about summer is that it’s basically the green light to eat ice cream for 90 days in a row. While there are plenty of fun grocery store flavors for you to overindulge, opening a pint of our favorite frozen dessert isn’t quite the same experience as making it yourself. I know what you’re thinking: who has time to make ice cream? Well, that point is moot when you have the Dash My Pint electric ice cream maker handy. Don’t have one? Do not worry. You can get one of these babies on Amazon for just $20!
Dash has become the internet brand for small devices. Most notably, people love the mini waffle maker which comes in different shapes such as a heart for Valentine’s Day. Now that it’s summer, let’s focus on the popular personal ice cream maker.
This ice cream maker is easy to use and makes a single serving of ice cream in just 30 minutes! It takes some planning – the ice cream container needs to be in the freezer overnight and the cream and other ingredients need to be well chilled before you can churn. But once everything is ready, just pour a cup of your cream mixture into the frozen container, put the top on and hit the power button. This little gadget then slowly mixes the ingredients as it freezes – the idea is to keep the mix moving so that ice crystals don’t form.
Not only can you have homemade ice cream whenever you want, but you can also experiment with different flavors and different types of liquids – you can try almond milk, coconut milk, yogurt or rice milk to create your personal dessert. But if you need guidance, the ice cream maker comes with a recipe booklet to get you started on your ice cream adventures. Thousands of Amazon shoppers are already dipping their spoons into personalized custards — it’s already gotten 4,600 five-star reviews for a variety of reasons.
Many shoppers use it to mix ingredients to their liking. One customer says it makes “a little pint of heaven,” but others use it because they can’t eat regular ice cream.
“I have IBS and am having issues with regular ice cream,” one delighted customer wrote. “Dairy-free ice cream is outrageously expensive in the supermarket and does not taste good. This little ice cream maker is my new favorite kitchen appliance! I prepare a batch of ice cream every other day… It’s fun to come up with new creations. No digestive issues at all and an ice cream I can control the ingredients of!”
If you don’t have a lot of freezer or storage space, you don’t have to miss homemade frozen goodies.
“Little freezer space? Don’t want a 15-inch honking cube taking up most of your freezer? asked a savvy shopper. “This is exactly why I got this. The cup is about the size of a large mug. It makes about 10 oz or 1 cup of great ice cream. In just 8 minutes. I made a great matcha and put the freezie cup back to a “triple strawberry for dinner…. Love this and the space saving. Might not work if you prefer the fluffy ice cream. But for us this is enough for 4 servings of dense deliciousness.”
Easy to use
Some customers love that this is a foolproof gadget.
“All of you, I am not a patient person,” one enthusiastic eater wrote. “I leave the bowl in the freezer for half as long as directed, don’t refrigerate the mix at all, let it run for about 12 minutes when most people say 20, and it STILL gets thick enough to hold a spoon upright. (I also fill the bowl like a fool so it’s much thicker towards the bottom.) I can only imagine how good it would be if I followed the directions lol.
