Ice-cream maker with hyphen[edit]

The title of this page is grammatically incorrect. There should be a hyphen between "ice" and cream." "Ice-cream" operates as one adjective modifying "maker." —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:15, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Regarding the requirement that electric machines with built-in freezer units should not be used for 12 hours after any movement, I checked my owner's manual for my machine (which is a Gaggia Gelatiera as shown in the picture in the article). It reads "Do not use this machine for 12 hours after purchase or after any move, which might have stored the machine the wrong way up" I suppose this might mean that if you move it but keep it the right way up and level as you move it, the 12-hour rule wouldn't apply. But as it's such a heavy and cumbersome machine, such a move might be easier said than done. Appliance matt 09:22, 3 March 2007 (


Where it says "The advantage of this type of electric machine is low cost, typically under $100", I assume it means Australian dollars? If so I will change it to reflect the AUD rather than ambiguous "dollars". JayKeaton (talk) 05:01, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Manual Machines Are "Inexpensive"?[edit]

This article says that manual machines are "inexpensive." Not by my standards. Neither are they readily available. I have been searching for one so that my grandson can experience what I experienced as a child. I have not been able to find any at a price less than approximately $150 (US$). So far as I can tell, there are only a couple of manufacturers of manual machines in the US. If anyone has different experience, then I would appreciate hearing about it." —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:27, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

You deserve to pay for wanting him to go through that. If you want to churn it by hand and want it cheap, you could opt for the spoon and freezer method? Personally, I think he'll probably just end up sick of ice cream after putting all the effort in and ending up with milky ice.
I got one for $20. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:24, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
Would you mind sharing where you found it? (talk) 04:58, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Vending machine article removed[edit]

Because it is not relevant to the article, and it did not have any references. RH - (rosscoolguy) (talk) 20:11, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Hand-cranked Machine[edit]

″Nancy Johnson invented the first hand-cranked model in 1843. She then sold the patent to William Young, who marketed the machine as the "Johnson Patent Ice-Cream Freezer."″ Information on who Nancy Johnson and William Young were should be added for context, and a link to the patent document: .
