White Mountain F69206-X 6-quart Electric ice cream freezer reflects the 145 years old heritage of its manufacturer every bit through the superior-make homemade ice cream, frozen yogurt and other frozen or semi-frozen desserts. It’s a calculated height and diameter ratio that makes the freezer can and tub belt out maximum efficacy with a minimum ice/rock salt mix.
The super smooth and deliciously creamy results owe to the traditional barrel construction techniques and a unique dasher system built on triple-motion action. At 180 watts and 12,000 rpm, it is rugged, dependable and performs better than some of the so-called commercial-grade motors.
Excellent starting and running torques eliminate the problems with restarting after adding fruits, candies or chocolate. The triple-motion dasher system has been exclusively designed for this. It mixes properly and beats efficiently an entire cream content, thus ensuring an even circulation of the freezing temperature. The system makes the canister turn clockwise first; the outer mixer moves anticlockwise at the same time.
The wood blades scrape inside the freezing canister thoroughly, driving the cooler cream inward. Upon meeting the inner mixer (turning clockwise), the cream takes a reverse horizontal direction, the impact creating formation of floats giving rise to an upward motion. The motion also inhibits the formation of ice crystals, another cause behind the resulting smoothness.
The groove bucket and the tongue are made from selected pinewood, held together with strong, galvanized hoops and three coats of sealer, stain and lacquer each. The other material is stainless steel (the freezer can, the dasher, the electric motor). Durable and built to stand long, exhausting sessions, the F69206-X Electric ice cream maker is a large, attractive, high-capacity ice cream making machine.
The White Mountain F69206-X electric ice cream maker radiates the same charm as it was in days of yore; the whole agenda carried out towards rewarding dollops. This old-fashioned White Mountain ice cream maker maintains the tradition well.
Despite a few ice cream maker reviews pointing out the freezer leaking oil from the motor and spoiling the ice cream, the White Mountain F69206-X wins praises chiefly not because of its capacity to handle large quantities at once; it’s because it handles the part efficiently.
That is, however, dependent on not less than 10 pounds of ice and rock salt rightly mixed in right proportions. Best for outdoor usage, one reason being the noise it makes. The large capacity; however, makes this mammoth unsuitable for small families and groups. Unless the canister is full, the results won’t be of the desired quality. That, of course, except for individual distastes for ice cream or similar desserts.
Finest materials, high craftsmanship and a superior built make the White Mountain stuff die hard, so its wise investing upon one. The richer and creamier results are the results of the superior techniques applied, so there’s a price to pay. The paddle churns the mix but does not separate the ingredients unlike done by cheap, plastic units that corrode and snap with time. The results, thus, come out fantastic.
The White Mountain F69206-X electric ice cream machine is LOUD, though. But that seems okay for a motor that can pull through a thickly frozen mix after being stopped for adding fruits and/or candies. The simultaneous motions of the canister, the outer mixer and the inner mixer also drives the air out and stops air from coming in, thus increasing and retaining the density of the mix. The result is a mind-blowing consistency with zero ice crystals at the expense of a LOT of ice.
All in All:
The search for a large capacity ice cream maker that makes good ice cream and doesn’t resemble a pile of complex junk ends with the White Mountain F69206-X electric ice cream making machine. A great choice for those tired of trying getting rid of ice crystals and large air gaps from their ice creams provided they take no offence in the noise. Else, the F69206-X electric ice cream maker has a sturdy and attractive look to compensate.
