We love it! It’s so much fun. It was the last present my mother bought the boys before she passed away, so we have had it for a couple of years now and we use it all the time.
It’s easy, quick and fun – we experiment with all sorts of natural and organic ingredients and the results are always terrific!
For sweeteners we have tried maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar, agave and other options! For fruit we have used raspberries, strawberries and coconut meat. For nuts we have experimented with cashews, almonds and hazelnuts. We always put in some natural/organic vanilla (even in our chocolate and berry flavored ice cream!), and we often add cinnamon and other baking spices to make it interesting.
I have tested all of the accessible components and found no lead anywhere on the appliance (this includes the cord, which is also lead-free.)
As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
