Description

The first ice cream makers were produced in the United States from the 1860s. Smaller domestic ice-cream makers made from the 1880s usually consisted of a metal inner pail fitted with a paddle attched to a crank handle which sat inside a wooden bucket containing a freezing mixture of ice and salt. The cream was poured into the inner pail where it was beaten and churned as it froze.
