The principle used by these machines is quite simple. The actual freezing is accomplished in the unit's freezer bowl, which contains a cooling liquid between a double-insulated wall. The bowl must be extremely cold before it can freeze anything, so you put the bowl in your freezer, preferably for at least 12 hours. (My original unit came with an extra freezer bowl, so I keep both bowls in the freezer at all times so I can make ice cream whenever the notion strikes me.)
Ice Cream Basics. Carlisle CM101202 White 3 Gallon Coldmaster Ice Cream Cold Crock with Lid. Keeping your ice cream at safe holding temperatures is very important. Ice cream is perishable, and if not stored properly, is subject to adverse changes in both the texture and flavor. Your freezer should always remain below -20 degrees Fahrenheit, so that the ice cream is thoroughly frozen and hard to the touch. If your ice cream begins to slowly defrost, ice crystals will form, which leaves a crunchy consistency, and therefore, an unsatisfying experience for the customer.
