The CFC-free 180-watt compressor (110/120V 60Hz) is both efficient and runs farily quietly. 2.1 quart capacity is roughly equal to 2 liters.
The soft touch LCD control display has the timer and temperature settings that you can adjust for different textures for ice cream, gelato and sorbet. The cooling temperature is between -0.4F and -31 degrees Fahrenheit. As an ETL certified unit it is safe to operate. It comes with the built-in security features like the Motor Protection Function to help avoid overheating or any damage to the motor when the ice cream mixture is frozen solid.
Stainless steel Whynter ICM-201SB has a sleek and modern design, weighs 25 pounds and measures 10.8 x 12.5 x 14.2 inches. It has a small footprint thanks to its upright design and will fit on pretty much any countertop. There are three modes to choose from, ice cream mode, cooling only and mixing only modes. You can also pause the ice cream making process with the Pause button if you want to add some flavors in.
Powerful and efficient compressor ensures the ice cream doesn’t melt. And you can use the machine continuously and without needing to prefreeze the mixing bowl. It is all done automatically without any extra work by you on this ice cream maker. If you want to make gelato or Italian ice cream you may want to follow the instructions on the recipes. You can make as little or as much ice cream as you want and most recipes are for two pints or almost one liter.
You may be familiar with the ICM-200 model and the difference of this ISM-201SB model is it has an upright design for a smaller footprint and the stainless steel bowl that is only available optionally on the ISM -200. This one costs more than the other Whynter Ice Cream Makers as it gives you more control over the results, and has the stainless steel mixing bowl. Please keep it unplugged and in upright position for up to 6 hours before starting to use it, because of being a compressor type unit.
The machine goes straight to the extended cooling for a couple of hours if you don’t turn it off within ten minutes of the completion. And after that it will be in the standby mode. There aren’t many parts except for the stainless steel mixing bowl and the churn blade, which makes this ice cream maker easy to clean and store. You’re recommended to wash them by hand rather than putting in the dishwasher. It is designed for use in the US and Canada with the 110 to 115 Volts power. Anything other than these voltages can damage the product.
