    leaked at first, but the dog liked following behind and licking up the cream. after tightening the lids several times, the leaks stopped. ice cream actually got really hard. i don’t like the fact that you need to stop half way through the process to mix. probably would not buy it again or recommend it. too much time for too little ice cream and the expense far, far exceeds just buying ice cream. UPDATE: I have now tried it four times and I’m done. The end flaps pop open causing it to stop rolling, having to stop midway to stir is a joke, and it is just a huge mess for what you get and spend. I would only recommend buying it to my enemies, and even then I would feel badly. I’m done. Don’t spend the money.

    Great project, average ice cream, June 19, 2015

    I used the Yaylabs ice cream ball for a first-grade lesson on changing states of matter. Because of the small capacity of the product and the number of students in my class, I used two of them. I mixed and poured all of the ingredients, but the students rolled and shook the ice cream balls, and the amount of time it took to solidify the ice cream was not too long and kept them engaged. The ice cream was tasty and as a project it was successful.

    Pros:

    -Easy for young kids to play with, hard to destroy (we rolled them on blacktop and the scuffs washed off)

    -Appropriate length of time for freezing (might be too long for younger children if there are only one or two, but with 28 seven-year-olds this was perfect)

    -Ice cream of a good, fairly firm consistency

    Cons:

    -Washing them out later was a pain. The shells and lids come off easily, but to really wash out all of the salt you have to undo eight screws and really scrub.

    -Both in class and at home making ice cream, the mixing wasn’t the best, probably because there’s no center paddle. The sugar tends to freeze last so the newly frozen ice cream is very sweet, while the harder ice cream stuck to the sides is much blander. I mixed them pretty thoroughly halfway through.

    All in all, I’d recommend for a fun project, not for the tastiest ice cream you can make.

    The ball works great. It’s a lot of work (and money) for a little ice cream. The fresh cream tastes amazing but If you just want ice cream you might be better off buying it by the pint. I can see this as a good family activity.
