It is easy to use and easy to wash. I wish I had purchased the attachment years ago.
Just make sure that the Kenwood is switched on before pouring in any liquid, or you could break the plastic blade. As long as the Kenwood is swiched on I really do not see how you could have a problem.
Worth every penny. The Ice cream is just as good as any being made by a machine costing £300 to £400
This is great value as it includes the Kenlyte mixing bowl which costs £19.99 on its own. This mixing bowl can be used for all Kenwood Chef tasks and is great to have as a spare. You also get the ice cream maker itself which goes in the freezer. It is full of the gel you get in ice blocks so it freezes very quickly, but I leave mine in the freezer all the time and as it is hollow I normally store a bag of peas etc inside so I do not waste the storage space in my freezer. In the box you also get the paddle which is made of plastic but is pretty tough, finally you get the splash guard with a pouring hole.
I use a very basic mix of ready made custard and I add my flavours to it, be it pistachio, chocolate etc. This isnt as nice as proper ice cream made with actual cream, but as I am on a diet I have to be careful!! It is also very tasty and is extremely cheap to make. I have also made sorbet and granitas which is a slushy ice dessert which is very refreshing. If you have the machine switched on before you add the ingredients and then pour the mixture in slowly then you will have no problems at all with this attachment.
Amazon sell a book which called "500 ice cream and sorbets by Alex Barker". this book has helped me get 110% out of my ice cream maker. In fact I have bought a second ice cream maker so I always have a bowl frozen!
In the box you get:
1 x Freezing bowl
1 x Plastic bowl (to sit the freezing bowl in)
1 x Ice Cream Scraper Attachment
1 x Plastic lid to pour mixture through
1 x Kenwood Spatula
We have had some fantastic results with this attachment and I am really glad I bought it; the fact that it can take ice cream to near soft consistency is wonderful although often means less is put in the freezer for later.
The attachment is incredibly easy to use, the instructions are clear but for reference:
- Make sure the freezing bowl has been left in your freezer for at least 24 hours prior to making ice cream; we leave ours covered in a clean bag permanently so it’s ready to use whenever.
- Make your ice cream mix; there are plenty of recipes online but there is also a basic recipe in the accompanying instruction booklet.
- Fit the plastic bowl on your Kenwood, with the freezing bowl sat inside, the plastic attachment sat in the middle and the plastic lid on top THEN lower the lid down. N.B. unlike all other Kenwood attachments where you insert them into the top first, here you lower your actual Kenwood onto the white scraper attachment.
- With everything nicely in place, switch your Kenwood on to its slowest speed setting and gradually add your ice cream mix.Read more ›
What you do is fit the kenlyte bowl into the stand mixer and then add the pre- frozen bowl and then put in the beater. You then put in the guard and make sure the beater is fitted through the hole correctly. You the lower the head and the beater fits straight on. You then get the machine going on the minimum speed, and THEN add the mixture, NOT before because if you do the ice cream will freeze the the bowl, and if you start the mixer afterwards the beater will snap!
So if you do everything correctly the ice cream maker will make absolutely superb ice cream! It will take about 30 mins.
Well it's fantastic. The freezing bowl is much wider and the freezing mix goes up the sides so it has a much larger cold surface area. The paddle is much bigger and everything seems to work so much more effectively.
I read many reviews about issues with the paddle. Seems to be first you need to check it has a moulded C on it for Chef. Despite tales of it shearing off, the material used to make it is exactly the same plastic on my two previous other manufacturers machines. I think the issue is caused by letting the mixture freeze for too long. I've cautiously stopped the machine at 20 minutes, when the mix was just starting to freeze up the sides. Don't expect the stuff to be exactly like manufactured stuff. Let it firm up a bit in the freezer. All you are trying to do is beat in some air and stop large ice crystals forming.
I also use the recipes in a (now On Kindle) book by Weir and Weir on Ice creams sorbets and Gelati, the definitive guide They investigated the science of getting the correct proportions of fat to sugar to flavours. Get it wrong and the texture can come out wrong.
Just made banana ice cream this morning which came out soft the evening from a day in the frezzer. Truly worth the price to give up on supermarket blandness

I was a little secepical about this product given some of the reviews. However if you follow the instructions exactly it works perfectly. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Steve
This works but is a bit of a faff. Freeze the bowl, add the ingredients, use the mixer to make creamy, cold mixture, refreeze bowl and contents if not set to ice cream consistency. Read morePublished 2 months ago by GD46
+ As long as it's been in the freezer for 24 hours and as long as I cool the mix in the fridge before churning, it always works for me. Read morePublished 4 months ago by fuchsia
unfortunately the blade does not scape to the edge of the bottom of the bowl. so the ice-cream freezes sold round the edge and insulates it! Read morePublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
