Help! Why Doesn't My KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Work?

Good Questions

Q: Last summer, we bought the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment, with hopes to be churning out gourmet homemade ice creams like nobody's business. Thing is — I've tried it a number of times with absolutely NO success. Last night, I gave it one last try on my own (following The Kitchn's recipe for vanilla ice cream), and after 90 minutes, it hadn't even started to thicken or become ice cream-like.

Is there a trick to this attachment that I'm maybe missing? I have followed the directions, but am wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences?

Editor: Amber, we've never used this particular attachment, so we can't speak directly to this. Readers — any clues? (Amber did confirm with us that she is fully freezing the bowl!)

Find it: KitchenAid KICA0WH Ice Cream Maker Attachment, $58.95 at Amazon
