My issues are with the unit itself
May 18, 2014
The issue I'm having is with the design. The drive assembly has never fit all that well. It snugly fits. It doesn't click in.
Second, the dasher. The dasher is to go into the ice cream when the bowl is in the down position for the bowl-lift mixer, then you raise the bowl, and the drive assembly and dasher are supposed to line up.
Herein lies the problem. If they do line up, there's slippage. If they don't line up, there's slippage.
The first time I used it, it took 5 tries; then it just magically aligned, and it worked fine. My next few times all worked wonderfully. Today, I tried 20+ times to get it to line up and catch and work. Not a chance. Very frustrating.
And there is no troubleshooting section in the instructions/recipe book.
If anyone has had this issue, I would love some feedback.
Pros: Easy to Clean, tasty end product
Cons: Difficult to Use, Temperamental, Assembly
