I would like to see ice cream made in five minutes. Even my modern plug-in freezer takes longer.
heh, I was wondering about that too. And oy, the pain of using an old fashioned crank freezer.
I have fond memories of making ice cream with hand cranked freezers at parties when I was a teen-ager.
we used them at church camp, and i tihnk the reason was to keep us kids occupied at least for a little while 🙂
Makes sense to me. 🙂
Somehow I think that the ad copywriter was over-optimistic when estimating the time.
We were given an old-fashioned hand-crank ice cream freezer with a cedar bucket for the ice as a wedding present. Some decades later we purchased an electrical churner, but we still have a rule that everyone has to take a turn at the final hand-cranking stage (when the electric motor starts to stall) in order to get their share of the ice cream when it is done.
I like the rule. It’s the best of both worlds – the electric churner does most of the work, but everyone still has the experience of hand-cranking.
Well, all you need is 15 minutes Sheryl! Oh, and an Acme ice cream freezer!
🙂 If only I had an Acme ice cream freezer. When I make ice cream with my electric one, it always seems like a major production.
And it always takes longer than it is supposed to!
Just love these old ads!
It’s nice to hear that you enjoy them. I also like them.
