Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

What is being done?

Teacherreader 9/30/2017

While researching whether or not to purchase an ice cream attachment for my KitchenAid stand mixer, I have read review after review plainly stating that this KitchenAid ice cream maker design is flawed because of the paddle AND the bowl. The customer service people have had to comment on nearly every single review. Why is this attachment still on the market? AND, to make matters even worse, it is being given away as a "free gift with purchase" at retail stores. Shame.

Ed 9/10/2017

Made great ice cream--- twice

Marco 9/4/2017

Have enjoyed my Kitchenaid for years now and thought the ice cream maker would be a nice addition, especially when the grandkids came over. Unfortunately, a key component broke after using it only twice.The drive assembly broke. I have two model kitchen aids and the drive assemble did not fit either models according tot he directions. By the third use, the assembly slipped off the dasher bending the shaft and damaging the short wire intending to keep in in place. Am surprised by the poor design and over emphasis on plastic in the design (my original attachments were metal and have lasted me 35+ years).

Not durable like other KitchenAid attachments

Lyndsie 9/1/2017

I absolutely love my KitchenAid stand mixer and attachments. My mixer itself is 20 years old and still works perfectly. This ice cream maker is not even close to the quality I expected. I purchased it in January when a major department store in our area went out of business. I made ice cream once but noticed that the bowl didn't stay cold enough. I refroze and tried again and that's when I realized that the bow has a hairline crack around the circumference and I had almost no liquid inside to freeze! No wonder it didn't work! The department store has since closed otherwise I would have returned this ice cream maker. I didn't have trouble with the dasher like some other reviewers but I can see how the plastic might not hold up over time. Disappointing coming from the same company that made my mixer that has held up so well over the years. I was expecting a much higher quality ice cream maker.

Broken ice cream attachment

Dirks 8/25/2017

I used the ice cream attachment successfully twice before it broke. I made wonderful sorbets and a frozen yogurt, how do I replace the part that is supposed to attach to the machine itself. I see from other comments that this might be a weak link in system. The paddle and bowl are fine. I need the third part of the system. Can you help?

Mary 8/20/2017

I've had my kitchenaid stand mixer for almost 35 year and it is wonderful! Most of the attachments that I have collected have been fantastic. However the ice cream maker is a very big disappointment. The part the connects the paddle to the mixer does not stay connected well during the freezing process plus it does not freeze the ice cream well!

PurpleKitty 8/18/2017

i purchased this so my daughter (13) and I could make ice cream, on the box it states that it fits ALL KitchenAid Stand Mixers, well my daughter and i finally found time to make ice cream and to our disappointment it does NOT fit on our KitchenAid mixer. I cant even take it back because I bought it in the states while visiting a friend. So not only did we have to figure out what to do with the mixed ingredients bit now i cant even use the ice cream maker......also i cant buy any other extra bowls so my mixer is also a disappointment!

Broke the first time it was used

Wayne 8/16/2017

The first time it was used, the plastic arm that attaches to the mixer spindle and drives the paddle, broke. As a retired engineer, my comment is that it was very poorly designed and broke at a point where the spindle stresses in the plastic are the highest.

Like most reviewers, I had the same problem with the leaking blue liquid. I wrote a review to communicate my disappointment with the product. Within less than 24 hours I was contacted my a customer service representative and a replacement unit was in the mail.

JAM 8/12/2017

We received this as a gift for our wedding and are very disappointed with it. It does not freeze the ice cream well. We keep it stored in a deep freeze and even refrigerate our ice cream mixture prior to making, but it never gets the ice cream thick enough. The final product is not even worthy of calling a milk shake. We have tried different methods each time we use it to see if we can figure out how to get a thicker consistency but have failed every time. I would not recommend this product. My mother in law has a cusininart ice cream maker that makes perfect ice cream. We end up having to borrow it every time our kitchen aid ice cream maker fails.

Good design but tolerances aren't good enough

Surprised 8/12/2017

Have had this for a few years with mixed results. If you watch the mixture as its churning, you will see a build of frozen ice cream on the wall of the maker about 1/16" thick. Instead of scraping the frozen ice cream off of the side of the bowl it's just kind of swishing the mixture around the bowl. The frozen wall of the bowl is insulated by the thin layer of ice cream. After doing this for 30 minutes you get a thawed out bowl and a semi liquid ice cream solution that you have to freeze for another 4 hours to get hard. This should never have been released for sale. Surprised kitchenaid wouldn't have more thoroughly tested this before putting their name on it. I thought they were better than that.

Laurie 8/12/2017

We used our new Kitchenaid ice cream maker attachment for the first time this weekend and loved it!

Poor Design

gwshaver 8/11/2017

I bought the ice cream attachment a few years ago, however I only use it one or two times a year. Recently, I put the attachment in the freezer to "pre-chill" befor using and 24 hour later I found it to be leaking a blue-colored liquid out of a small area near the top of the attachment. The liquid leaked onto the floor of the freezer (see photo). I did go ahead and use it, (and it works fine) but it continues to leak. After reading others' reviews, this appears to be a known problem with these attachments, and hopefully this design has been corrected. While I love my KA stand mixer and other attachements, this one is a dud. I would not recommend purchasing this unless I had assurance that this leaking issue has been addressed.

Grady's Mom 8/4/2017

I really, really wanted to be the exception, but mine was leaking the blue gel/fluid when I removed it from the freezer. On a bright note, my first KA stand mixer was my grandmothers, and my daughter has it now. In all those years, through new mixers as gifts, pasta, sausage, and apple corer, attachments, blenders, hand mixers, etc. Our family has NEVER had a faulty product. That says a lot!

Never a problem

ValhallaBackGirl 8/3/2017

I got this as a wedding present about 4 years ago and have used it a few dozen times. First off: Never any blue goo. Someone else mentioned the paddle not attaching, it can be a little odd figuring out which side is the 5qt side and which is the 6qt but that trial and error and takes maybe 10 seconds. I have to buy a new one unfortunately because my apartment burnt down but other than that I am very happy with the ice cream maker.

Common Problem: It Leaks

Adam 8/3/2017

Kitchenaid has been a trusted brand in my family for decades. I own a Kithenaid mixer because my mother and grandmother owned one -- it was a kitchen necessity. Reliable, these mixers have been the Cadillac of food prep tools. Because I was a true believer in Kitchenaid quality and performance, it was a no brainer that I add the Kitchenaid ice cream attachment to my culinary tool box. I was almost immediately disappointed in my purchase. Following the directions, I made a batch of vanilla ice cream. The taste and quality of the ice cream was fantastic, however, the ice cream was almost the consistency of soft serve. I was fully aware, as outlined by the included instructions, that the ice cream would come out somewhat soft and that was okay with me. This was beyond that, so much so that the texture and thicknesses the attachment produced couldn't withstand filling a cone. I suspect that the attachment simply couldn't hold the cold temperature required to make ice cream -- it warmed too quickly. After four different times of attempting to make ice cream, my final batch was completely ruined after I discovered the blue liquid contained sealed inside the attachment has leaked. Keep in mind, I followed the enclosed instructions for cleaning, storage, assembly and use exactly as outlined. It's a flaw that I wish I would have learned about before purchasing the attachment. It's completely unusable now. Finally, the plastic fitting used to stir the ice cream is somewhat flimsy and complicated to assemble. I was concerned that it could fail and break or chip. Overall, the ice cream attachment was a good idea, just poorly constructed. It would be great if Kitchenaid redesigned this attachment with quality materials, such as a metal stir that easily attaches to the mixer; a higher quality of "blue solution" that could retain a colder temperature for longer and better materials used in construction of the freezer bowl with attention to keeping the blue solution sealed.

Great until it breaks

Warped 7/31/2017

I bought this about 2 years ago and it's been working great up until now. It hasn't leaked from what I can tell but the inside of the bowl became warped so the paddle isn't able to churn the ice cream. Naturally I discovered this after I dumped the ice cream base into the bowl :( I'm bummed there is only a one year warranty.

Not Worth It

Frustrated 7/30/2017

My mixer is the large professional series. Attaching the beater is a significantly different process than the smaller mixers. Frankly the beater just does NOT attach. Most components snap, latch or do something great and you can start. But not this. Yes, i found the b YouTube video demonstrations. Just poorly engineered for this model. Waiting for an upgrade.

Ice Cream Bowl Leaks

Matt K 7/25/2017

I really enjoyed making ice cream using my KitchenAid stand mixer, but I was sad to find that my chill-bowl is unusable after just a few ice cream churns. It has a leak in it, and the blue gel leaked out. Looks like this isn't too uncommon a problem -- I just wish I'd read the reviews beforehand.

Super Fast, Great Quality Ice Cream

Niki 7/17/2017

I have had my ice cream maker for 7 years and absolutely love it! I freeze it a day or 2 before I need it, use it. Turn it on before I pour the mix in. Take the ice cream out with a silicone spatula. Let the ice cream maker come to room temperature. Wash it in the sink and dry it well. Then I store it in my kitchen cabinets. No problems with leaking here. Super great attachment that is sooo fast. 15 minutes to delicious ice cream!

Ice Cream Maker Leaking Blue Liquid

TW 7/13/2017

I have had this ice cream attachment for 5 years and I use it 2-3 times a year. When not in use, I store it very carefully in it's original packaging, in a safe location. This week I put the bowl in the freezer to prepare to make a batch of ice cream and blue liquid has leaked out all over the bowl and my freezer. I can't tell where the leak is on the bowl and I do not feel comfortable using it to make ice cream. I loved this product until it self-destructed. Really a shame for such an expensive item.

Disappointed, bowl leaking after only a few uses

Usually a Kitchenaid Fan 7/5/2017

I bought this attachment a year or so ago. Made a few batches of ice cream last summer and left it in the freezer over the winter. With my second batch of ice cream this summer, I found the bowl in the freezer covered in blue fluid. We cleaned it up and let the bowl defrost. We found the fluid was leaking out of a crack in the outer bowl. Seeing all the other reviews, I'd say there is a serious design flaw with this product. Too bad, I really liked the idea of having one less appliance to store. We love homemade ice cream. Unfortunately I sold my trusty Cuisinart ice cream maker at a yard sale. Guess I'll have to buy another one of those.

Hugely Disappointed

Heather T. 6/26/2017

I've always wanted a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and especially the ice cream maker attachment. Last year for Christmas my fiance bought me the 5 quart Artisan stand mixer and the ice cream maker attachment. I have used the ice cream maker 3 times now and each time the churning/mixing attachment does not stay engaged. I also don't understand why the churning attachment is in two pieces of plastic. Each time I wind up turning off the mixer and putting the ice cream in the freezer without the proper churning time of 25-30 minutes. The two plastic pieces dislodge from each other within 10 minutes and will not realign itself to continue churning. Today is the last time I will be using this attachment because it dislodged itself within the first five minutes and flung ice cream out of the bowl onto the floor. I'm so disappointed with this attachment and will have to buy a separate kitchen appliance dedicated to ice cream making.

Flawed Design

gwshaver 6/25/2017

Although I bought the KA Ice Cream maker a few years ago, I only use it once or twice a year. I used it this weekend, and upon opening the freezer I saw a blue liquid on the sides of the maker (and all over the bottom of my freezer compartment). Based on what I have read from other reviewers, this appears to be a common problem. Surly this is a design flaw and while I love my KA Stand Mixer (I use it weekly), this particular accessory does not meet my expectations. I'm quite disappointed nevertheless.

Terrible quality

maria 6/22/2017

I received a free ice cream maker when I purchased my kitchen aid mixer. Well now I can understand why it was a free gift. It has been used once, and was sitting in the cabinet - when I was going to try to use it again. The bowl has a crack, and there is blue liquid leeking from the bowl. I handed it in to lakeland where I bought it, first they said it was not covered under warranty as it was a complementary item. Again I can see why it was free ! After requesting that it should be sent to the service center, they finally agree to do so. After a week, service centre calls me and says not covered under warranty as it was a complimentary item - also I must have mis handled it for the bowl to crack. Please not, only used once - and looks brand new, apart from the unsightly crack. Don't buy it, clearly is not made to last!!!!!

Best Ice cream marker!

Ice cream lovers in Delaware 6/22/2017

I have read the other reviews, my first ice cream maker developed a leak. I called the company and got a new one. For some reason, that one did the same thing. But, KitchenAid honest their product and I got another one. So far, this summer, we have used our ice cream marker three times. My family enjoys the French vanilla, the strawberries and of course, the peach ice cream. My husband's favorite is cookie and cream. Really, he does not share that one. During the summer, I keep the ice cream maker in the freezer so that it is ready to go. During the winter it rest. I love it.

My first attachment and still a favorite

Mointhebend 6/21/2017

I have had my ice cream maker attachment since 2005. It still works great. I read the other reviews. I have necer had any problems with leaks/cracks/braakage. However, I will say you need to read the manual and follow it thoroughly (start the thrasher on low setting before adding ice cream custard to churn, make sure the bowl is completely thawed before washing it and refreezing it, etc.) My family dies enjoy the homemade ice cream produced from this attachment. Initially it is a soft serve texture; not as solid form as a crank ice cream maker. However, if you put plastic wrap over the soft serve ice cream and/or put in an air tight container until solid firm, you will not have ice crystals/freezer burn. I did rate it a five star because this is the only ice cream maker I have ever used and am pleased with the results. I also store mine in the freezer so it is ready when I want to make ice cream. (I also store my meat grinder attachment in the freezer, too. )

Poor technical design

Monica 6/7/2017

I love my KitchenAid and I am satisfied with the other attachments I have, but I would give ZERO stars to the ice-cream attachment. Mine has been bought one year ago, and has been used maybe ten times. During the ice-cream making phase, there is heat dispersion in all directions, because the plastic cover won't fit and there's no insulation anywhere. As a result, the ice-cream is not properly churned, and it has to be put into the freezer only half-done and then it turns out all ice. This is all the more evident if you use another recipe for ice cream, not the ones given with the attachment. Very poor technical design. I'm buying a dedicated ice-cream maker.

disappointed

I've used this ice cream maker a handful of times and the plastic piece that makes it spin never really worked correctly, and I went to use it recently and it broke trying to spin. Not sure why you would make something like that plastic. I love kitchen aid and for the price this sucks..Totally disappointed with this product.

Doesn't fit older mixer

Gvillesv 6/5/2017

One of the big selking features of kitcheaid was that all the attachments are supposed to fit all the mixers. I have my mothers mixer model K45SS it was a big purchase for her when she bought it. This will not fit the model I have . It is disappointing that they can no longer claim that all the attachments fit all the mixers considering how expensive the mixers are and that was a big selling/ purchading point at one time

Disappointing

pjmill4 6/3/2017

I used this device perhaps 6 times. When I put it in the freezer I noticed the bottom of the freezer was blue and though someone had dropped a popsicle on it. Nope, it was coming from the little plastic nub in the back. Had to throw away everything it leaked on in the freezer. I have almost all the attachments for my Kitchenaid and they all work great. This one has a design flaw based on all the reviews.

Never had a single issue

Jamie 5/31/2017

I've had this for several years now and it makes fabulous ice cream very quickly. I've never had the bowl defrost midbatch. I suspect people poured warm custard into the bowl instead of waiting for it to cool. The design of the way the paddle attaches is not ideal, but it's still far superior to the conventional salt and endless spinning method.

Yes, I recommend this product

Worked fine until it started leaking.

Josh 5/30/2017

We used this a handful of times over a couple of years. Took it out for the summer months and discovered that it was leaking blue liquid everywhere. This is not worth the price unless this problem is fixed.

Leaking Blue

MOTD 5/29/2017

I bought this ice cream maker because I thought it would be easy to make ice cream for my grandbabies. It worked well at first. I had kept it in the freezer all the time for summer ice cream fun. I took it out of the freezer over the winter since we don't eat much ice cream when it's freezing cold outside. I just put it back in the freezer and there is blue leaking from it. I've had to throw out valuable meat because I'm afraid of contamination. The bowl was never dropped, put in the dishwasher or even washed with hot water. I'm very disappointed. I expected more from KitchenAid.

Very disappointed

Slilly 5/29/2017

I have loved this in the past, but just pulled it down for a special Memorial Day treat and there is blue antifreeze all over my cabinet, bowl and has stained/ruined the attachments to my very expensive food processor. Looks like this is a common problem for a very expensive attachment. Very very disappointed.

Not worth the money

Jennifer 5/20/2017

I have had my eye on this attachment for a long time now so I finally decided to purchase this icecream maker. I used the chocolate recipe included in the instructions and I ended up with chocolate soup. I separated my custard in two batches because I didn't know how much it would expand. My first batch went in the freezer after 30 minutes and I tried to do the second batch but my bowl had defrosted to much and I had to empty out my now liquid custard and rechill both it and my bowl. After 24 hours I re attempted my icecream. Again I ended up with soft soft soft serve. I own a traditional old fashioned that requires salt and ice and I will go back to using that machine. At least my icecream is icecream not semi goopy sludge. I can't even call what this kitchen aid ice maker makes as soft serve or icecream. So disappointed since this was something I had wanted for such a long time.

Don't waste your money on this Ice Cream Attachment

Ice Cream Maker 5/14/2017

Should have listened to the reviews, really please do. If your bowl doesn't leak after a few freezes the plastic adapter will torque and it will not spin. I believe this is an after thought add-on product that the engineers at Kitchenaid rushed to put together. Its JUNK. Buy a nice stand alone ice cream maker and you will be a happier person for it. Also don't expect any customer service on this, read the warranty info, you will be surprised!!
