Attaching the Ice Cream Maker - Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer

How to Attach Ice Cream Maker to Bowl-Lift-Mixer

IMPORTANT: Always set the mixer to speed one before adding your ice cream base to the bowl. If the mixer is not running, the base could freeze too quickly and lock the attachment, causing breakage.

Before first use, wash the Freeze Bowl by hand. The Dasher and Drive Assembly are dishwasher-safe.

  1. Turn the Stand Mixer OFF (0) and unplug.

IMPORTANT: Do not pour ice cream batter into the Freeze Bowl until all parts are assembled and the mixer is running. Use the Freeze Bowl immediately upon removal from the freezer, as it begins to thaw once removed.

  1. Fit the Freeze Bowl in place over the locating pins. Press down on the back of the Freeze Bowl until the bowl pin snaps into the spring latch.


NOTE: The Freeze Bowl is designed to fit most bowl-lift mixers. If the bowl pin at the back of the Bowl is too long to snap into the spring latch, remove and rotate the Bowl so the blank side faces the spring latch. Repeat step 3.
