Looking at this cool, space aged blue plastic ball, you might think that Ice Cream making has been taken to a new high-tech level. You would be wrong, although the ball does look totally coo. This is the same ice cream making system that people have been using for years. What the ball design does is ramp up the fun and family involvement in the process. Just fill up the canister with ice and salt, then add the cream and flavoring to the ball and start playing. The idea is to get everything shaking, so parents and kids are encouraged to throw, kick, pass and jiggle the ball around. Well made, to withstand the abuse that is deliberately inflicted on it, the highly anticipated results are evident when you unscrew the top and start digging in.
