  • Fun idea but...
    The lid on ours leaked so the salt water leaked everywhere! What a mess. I now have a dry salt hue on my hardwood. Not impressed. And the instruction booklet needs work. It would be nice to know how much ice and salt a person needs to make a batch.
  • Fun, but...
    1. Lid for ice cream side on mine leaks just a little. Not a lot, but considering this is to be rolled on a kitchen floor... 2. You’re supposed to open it after 10 minutes. At this point we realized both caps are identical and unmarked. You can put a permanent marker dot or such on to differentiate, but honestly should have something stamped on plastic from factory. 3. Instructions don’t tell you quantity of ice and salt. I found salt quantity online. To be fair, on the ice you just fill it, but it’d be handy to know the volume so you can prepare instead of scramble when kids want to do it immediately.
  • Pretty fun
    Really have to tighten the lid to prevent leaking. Instruction book doesn’t tell you how much salt to add, kind of ridiculous.
