Somewhat off topic, I just took out my ice cream maker (after many years of non-use) to find it covered in a yuckie crust. I am assuming the freezable liquid in the base seeped out so I am going to get rid of it and buy another. Can one of you enthusiastic paletas makers recommend a good ice cream maker? I don't need the top of the line, just one that is reliable.
