Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Present My 11-year-old says “It leaked a little but over all was a great gift!” She and her siblings had fun rolling the ball around and the ice cream turned out good too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, but it leaks This is a great idea and we had fun making it, but it makes a mess. The salt water leaks out even when the lid is on as tight as I can get it. Also, you have to open up the ice cream compartment half way through to stir. At this point, it's a slurry mess that gets everywhere. You also have to open to add toppings near the end. Finally, we can't figure out a good way to get the ice cream off the bottom of the compartment short of filling the ice compartment with warm water (more mess). The ice cream itself was pretty good and our 4 year old had fun for the whole 20 minutes roll time (all 3 times we've used it). He enjoyed picking a topping to put in. We'll be putting this away until it's warm enough to use outside.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leaks, very hard to open I like this product but don’t love it mainly because it is very difficult to twist open the latches for fear of breaking off the plastic tab portion. It leaks if the latches are not screwed on tight. If you screw the latches on tight, it’s impossible for 1 person to open. My BIL has to hold the latch while I provided stability and counter twisting to the rest of the ball in order to get it open and you have to open and close both sides at least twice to make 1 batch of ice cream. It’s only good for rolling and it very heavy once filled. It is very easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ice cream Fun I saw this and had to have it for my ice cream loving granddaughter. It was a huge hit! We took turns rolling the ball on the floor, and before you knew it, the ice cream was done! We followed the recipe included for vanilla and it was really good. As a teacher I loved Mindware products. I still do. Fun with a purpose! Recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fun and good ice cream We used this ice cream maker about 4 times in 3 days since my daughter prepared ice cream and sorbet for our guests during the Holidays. Easy to use, very limited mess. Basically you can do sorbet with fruit juice and some sugar and it turns out great. Only drawback is that the bottom part of the container is difficult to scrape to get the sorbet out because it's very frozen and sticks to the container. You need to leave it rest for about 15 mins and then remove it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leaks The ice cream was delicious, but we were very disappointed that the salt section was leaky from the middle. My kids roll it back and forth on top of a few towels I laid out on the floor so the salty water didn't get all over my floor which is disappointing for the amount of money it cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought for grandchildren to contribute to THANKSGIVING dinner. Ages, 6,4,2. It was perfect. They played catch, they rolled it around and back and f My grandchildren ages 2,4,6 thoroughly enjoyed making ice cream for THANKSGIVING dinner. By playing catch and rolling the ball around they made milk into ice cream. The best was getting to eat what they had made!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They love it! Purchased as birthday gift for 5 yr old girl, future scientist. The ball works to make ice cream, doesn't leak, kids like the taste BUT after 12 minutes Dad had to take over in the rolling department.
