A patented system that has stood the test of time, and discerning taste buds. 1. Motor Only the White Mountain® Brand uses a 12,000 RPM commercial grade motor, now with a NEW design and improvements, that provides the churning torque needed for making homemade ice cream. No other ice cream maker has the power to restart after stopping to add fruit, berries, chocolate or candy to a thickened ice cream mixture. 2. Bucket The NEW premium dark wood stained bucket is crafted of select pine from New England and bound with strong galvanized hoops and electroplated fittings to ensure lasting stability. NEW and improved slide and lock brackets hold and easily release the motor (or hand crank). 3. Canister The tall canister design allows the ice cream to come in close contact with the ice and rock salt making it freeze faster. Our canister is manufactured of heavy-duty stainless steel that will provide years of ice cream making service. 4. Dasher The patented dasher system is constructed of heavy-duty cast iron and is electroplated for lasting durability. It will never warp out of shape like plastic dashers are prone to do. And the beech wood blades are self-adjusting to ensure uniform scraping of the ice cream mixture on the canisters interior sidewall.
