I may need to go shopping for an ice cream maker. My anniversary is this week.
I have two:
Amazon.com: Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker: Kitchen & Dining
Amazon.com: Hamilton Beach 68330R 4-Quart Automatic Ice-Cream Maker: Kitchen & Dining
You may be able to find the second one (or a similar one) pretty cheaply at Target or Walmart. That type of ice cream maker is better for spontaneous ice cream creation in that you just use ice and rock salt, you don't need to freeze the canister.
