I mentioned this in a prior thread but I thought I'd mention it a little louder in case there are others that are interested. I tried my new $9.99 (reg. $60)Panasonic ice cream maker (3 cup capacity) today and it works beautifully. It works inside the freezer as opposed to having to prefreeze the canister, for spontaneous ice cream making. It is currently the top seller in Amazon kitchen and housewares. Works great!
