The Nostalgia Electrics gets kudos from experts and owners as an affordable, easy to use ice cream maker. It's great for large batches, making up to four quarts. It has an electric motor, so there's no hand-cranking required, and it uses ice and rock salt rather than a gel-filled, pre-frozen canister.
