The Krups “La Glaciere” ice cream maker is a popular home ice cream, sorbet and gelatto maker. The model consists of a freezing cylinder, paddle, lid and motor unit. The lid has a feeding hole in its center. The release button is located at the top of the motor unit, and the on/off switch is on the side of the motor unit.
Never put the base in water. To clean it, wipe it with a damp cloth. Avoid any contact with moving parts. Pull back long hair when using the ice cream maker, and always watch children carefully if they are helping you use the maker. The Krups ice cream maker is intended for indoor use only.
Freeze the Cylinder
Place the clean, dry cylinder in a plastic bag (to protect against freezer burn) and place it upright in the back of your freezer. The cylinder will take 8 to 9 hours to freeze at -22 degrees F, 12 to 13 hours at -13 degrees F, 20 to 22 hours at 0 degrees F and 24 hours at 5 degrees F. Shake the cylinder to check for complete freezing: you should not hear any sloshing of the water inside the cylinder’s walls when it is fully frozen.
You can use your own recipes, or this basic recipe for vanilla ice cream. Warm 1 cup milk in a pan. While the milk warms, whisk together 2 eggs and ½ cup sugar in a separate bowl. Slowly add warm milk to the eggs and sugar, whisking continuously. Heat slowly and continue stirring until the mixture is thick. Let cool completely and add 2 cups cream and 2 tsp. vanilla extract.
Assemble the Machine
Slide the motor unit into the lid until they lock together. Put the paddle into the frozen cylinder. Put the lid on the cylinder. It will connect through two tabs on the side and will connect with the paddle. Plug in the ice cream maker.
Make Ice Cream
Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker through the feeding hole in the lid and turn on the machine. Let it run 30 to 40 minutes or until the mixture is as thick as you want it to get. Turn off and unplug the ice cream maker and remove the lid by pressing the release button at the top. Remove the paddle. Your ice cream is ready to serve or to store in the freezer for later.
