I've been making homemade ice cream for years. It is always a hit when I bring a batch or two to a summer party. Whenever any one has asked that question I tell them how much it cost ($8 for 2 quarts.) then they want it less and go back to buy it at the store. I still get the praises when it is party time though and that is just fine with me. Invest in a small maker where you freeze the container for 24 hours and then make the ice cream. super easy and you will make small batches for you and friends and family. The best!

If I were to build my kitchen from scratch, it would be pretty much what I have today w/out having to go through all the old, cheap stuff that I wound up buying getting rid of because it was low quality and wore out or broke or didn't work as well as it should have. So as follows:

All Clad Stainless:

  • 12" skillet
  • 1.5 qt pot
  • 3 qt pot
  • 8 qt stock pot (I have the 12 qt but most people won't use something that big

    Cast iron:

  • 12" skillet
  • 8" skillet
  • other cast iron pieces for grilling that most people won't use

    Enameled dutch oven (Staub):

  • 3 qt round cocotte
  • 7 qt round cocotte

    Various Appliances:

  • Kitchenaid mixer (hand mixer first, then stand mixer)
  • Cuisinart stick blender
  • Coffee maker (I have a Cuisinart, but I'm not stuck on the brand)
  • A toaster oven (again, I have Cuisinart, but check reviews)
  • An electric kettle (no brand specific)
  • Vitamix (optional - I love mine and use it daily)


  • Shun 10" chef knife
  • Shun 4" utility knife
  • No name super-thin flexible fish filleting knife that debones poultry like it was butter
  • Honing steel
  • Magnetic strip for storing knives

    Other misc stuff:

  • Fish turners in all sizes
  • Good set of bamboo (not wooden) spoons/spatulas
  • Set of silicone scraper/spatulas
  • Oxo tongs in various sizes (at least short, med, long)
  • A mandoline slicer
  • Epicurian cutting boards
  • Microplane grater/zester
  • A variety of mesh strainers (I use them more than colanders)
  • Thermopop instant read thermometer
  • A good quality probe thermometer (the kind you leave in the oven)


  • A basic set of Corningware
  • A couple of half sheet pans

    Fun things to have if you think you'll use them:

  • Pasta maker or attachment for your Kitchenaid
  • Ice cream maker
  • Bread machine

    These are the things that I have right now that I'd get from the start if I were starting over from scratch. I have other stuff, but it's been gathered over time and I'm sure I've left out a few things, since I'm kind of working off the top of my head. Oh yeah, like a good set of storage stuff (Rubbermaid or similar) and a garlic press ... and ... and ... :)

For the sweet tooth (like my dad, these are all things he likes):

  • A candy jar or bowl filled with her favorite candy.

  • An artisan ice cream scoop.

  • An ice cream maker. You could get an ice cream recipe book as well.

  • One of my dad's favorite gifts was a sugar dispenser... I think that shows his level of sugar commitment.

  • Some artisan marshmallows.

  • A milk frother that doubles as a hot chocolate maker.

    For the executive (like my mom, these are all things she likes):

  • A high quality thermos for coffee on the way to work.

  • A smart home setup, maybe an echo and some smart outlets or the google home. Really good for turning lights on/off, asking for the weather and news, listening to music, etc.

  • A FitBit to help her keep healthy even working long hours.

  • A popcorn maker that allows you to make non-microwaved popcorn in the microwave.

  • A white noise machine. If she has any trouble sleeping this thing is AMAZING.

  • A Roku or Chromecast that makes it easier to watch Netflix on the TV.

  • Wine tasting or cooking class that you can do together. Really my mom loves doing stuff with her family.

The food that you see here was made during a raw foods prep class I taught a couple of days ago. This time, the theme was Thanksgiving. I'll describe each of these dishes to a certain extent, but forgive me if I am not ultra-specific, as I am currently in the process of putting together a book.

  1. Nut loaf: Walnuts, hazelnuts and sunflower, with various vegetables, flax, herbs, spices, olive oil and salt. Mixed well in food processor. Shaped into loaves, then dehydrated at 110F for close to 24 hours.

  2. Mashed potatoes: Cauliflower, sweet potato and macadamia, olive oil, salt and pepper. food processed until fluffy.

  3. Gravy: Top secret for now (as it's a completely new idea, and tastes just like southern gravy). I will say it contains mushrooms and onion. :)

  4. Stuffing: I start with my basic onion bread recipe (onions, flax, sunflower seed, coconut aminos, dates, etc, then dehydrate). Once done, I cut the bread into tiny pieces, then toss with diced apple, celery, raisins, fresh herbs and a touch of oil. All goes back into the dehydratoe for a few more hours.

  5. Pumpkin pie: The crust is your basic raw pie crust... walnuts, pecans, dates, salt all blended in food processor. My filling is pretty unique, but does contain cashews and coconut oil. Ironicly, it contains no pumpkin.

  6. Ice cream: Super easy. Freshly made coconut milk, young coconut meat, coconut nectar and real vanilla bean seeds. I use one of those Braun ice cream makers.

  7. Scones: Soaked ground flax, dates, cranberries, lots of good spices. Shaped into balls, then dehydrated.

  8. Cranberry coconut swirl. This is like a cranberry sause, but sweeter. Cranberries, oranges, apples, young coconut meat and dates.

I own a Cuisinart ICE-30BC and I have loved it. Freezer space can be an issue occasionally, and I've found that you can't make a true 2 quarts of ice cream without overflow, but I have been very happy with any ice cream I've made in it. Personally, my thought would be that either one will take up a significant amount of space, and so I would just go for the stand-alone unit.

u/Cocoavore · 2 pointsr/Cooking

We're currently using this one:

Though it doesn't like look it's still available in the states - does say there is a 'newer version', though.

You can get one with a built in compressor, but more than anything, they are pretty huge. remembering to stick the container in the freezer a while before isn't such a big deal (you can even store it in there, if you like).

Just pulling up some links from my notes...some recipe sites: (subscription site, but lots of good recipes) (note, gluten-free vegan sites have LOTS of great recipes, as they are already dairy-free etc.) (paleo sites are also great) (this one is specifically corn-free) (she has a really good gluten-free cookbook) (another excellent gluten-free cookbook)

Some vendor sites: (their mini chocolate chips are great)


If you have the space & budget available, I'd recommend investing in an upright deep freezer (I have a monster 20cf model, although it's very energy efficient & uses less than $5/mo in electricity according to the energy star rating). Depending on how severe the allergies are, you might want to look into CSA farm-shares, buying grass-fed meat from a local farm, etc. Otherwise, it's also excellent to have for convenience & buying safe foods in bulk, especially if you get an Anova and/or Instant Pot & can prep freezable meals that are easy & fast to cook. I also make homemade ice cream using a freezer-bowl machine; currently $65 on Amazon:

This is my dairy-free procedure here:

The chocolate ice cream with half an avocado is actually really excellent! I still make that one, even though I can have dairy again. So like I said, it's not a death sentence anymore - lots of good tools, pre-packaged products, and recipes available for all kinds of allergies these days. You can also do stuff like sushi, wok-cooking (5-minute stir frys!), etc. Having allergies actually introduced me to a lot of cuisines I otherwise would have never tried.

u/rabbithasacat · 2 pointsr/AskCulinary

peanutbutterbuttplug's advice is great, but if you still have problems with the emulsion, you may want to try an extract rather than an oil, as in vanilla extract, mint extract, or one of the many extracts commonly used in ice cream. They contain no oils and are commonly alcohol suspensions. I have no idea if this bubblegum extract is any good, I'm just linking to it to show that such a thing does exist. Adding oils to ice cream mix is problematic in general.

I agree that an ice cream maker is going to give you much better results. I have this one and it's wonderful. You do need to freeze the canister at least 24 hours ahead of time in the coldest part of your freezer, though, just a heads up.

I don't think you need to use all cream, either. You may want to experiment with ratios of milk to cream or at least lighter cream. My husband actually prefers it when I make it with only whole milk! You may not want to do that, but that's just to give you an idea of the range of possibilities.

I hate single use tools but this thing is awesome.

Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker

Throw the ingredients and hit start. 10-20 minutes later ice cream.

Same quality they use for the bigger ones they use in restaurants.

u/JennyJoyO · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would love an ice cream maker

Your jewelry is so pretty.

Edit: I love the Snow White and the Peter Pan. Super cute

u/TheDoktorIsIn · 1 pointr/AskReddit

This is not lame at all. However, it's time to step up your game. I got this on sale. It's a game changer.

u/pinksalmonz · 1 pointr/keto

I threw all the ingredients into a 2 quart pot and used and egg beater to blend everything well. The pot was nearly full, so I had to be careful not to turn the beater on too high. I heated the mixture to an internal temperature of 160 while constantly stirring. You don't have to heat it but I did because I wanted the eggs to yield as much protein as possible and I've heard raw eggs aren't as nutritious.

Then I cooled the mixture in the freezer for 1 hour, and then the fridge for another 2 hours.

Then I put the mixture in this [ice cream maker] (, and it was ready to eat in 30 minutes.

u/IPickOnYou · 1 pointr/keto

I have one of these - but (disclosure) I actually got it refurb from* a few weeks back and without the extra bowl.

It's made easily 8 quarts so far (incl. some traditional mint choc chip for the rest of the family) and shows no signs of stopping. Also easy to clean.


  • Hey, they're owned by amazon - I didn't lie!
u/SquatzOatz · 1 pointr/keto

Well you could buy an ice cream maker and make your's really just heavy cream and sugar, so you can easily sub out the sugar for 0 carb liquid sucralose.

Four suggestions, none of them good:

  • bleach the dye with hydrogen peroxide

  • dye them a darker color

  • find OEM replacements for the dyed parts

  • buy one of these and never look back
u/MattDamonStuntDouble · 1 pointr/design_critiques

Oh man, I'm looking at your maker and it is on sale from $300 to $150, and I'm pretty tempted to upgrade. The self-refrigerating is a huge selling point. I've been using this maker. The 2 quart size has been big enough, but I have to manually freeze the bucket for 24 hours between batches. By the time the batch is done churning, the bucket has thawed a bunch and the ice cream comes out a bit too soupy for immediate enjoyment.
