Developed for home use in 1848, the traditional crank ice-cream freezer employs a metal dasher inserted into a metal cylinder full of ice-cream base, which is placed in a bucket filled with a rock-salt and ice mixture (brine). The hand or motor-cranked dashers turn around in the ice-cream mixture as it freezes, preventing ice crystals from forming and ensuring a smooth, creamy final product.

White Mountain Ice Cream Freezers

While it is still possible to buy Antique Ice Cream Freezers they can be hard to find and expensive to restore. A happy compromise is to buy a reproduction ice cream freezer based on a traditional design.

New England's White Mountain Freezer Company has manufactured traditional ice cream freezers for over 145 years and is one of the only companies left who still does. Their beautifully crafted, durable pine and stainless-steel ice-cream freezers give you the look and great taste of Antique Ice Cream Freezers married with modern convenience.

  • Only White Mountain Freezers feature the unique Triple Motion Action with 3-gear drive. This process properly mixes and beats the entire cream contents, resulting in the smoothest ice cream and assuring even freezing.
  • Freezer tubs are manufactured of select New England pine and bound with strong galvanized hoops. The tubs are fitted with electro-less nickel plated fixtures to ensure durability.
  • Tall profile can design allows cream to come in closer contact with ice and salt to give faster freezing. The cans are manufactured of heavy-duty stainless steel to guarantee long life.
  • Because the dasher is constructed of heavy duty cast iron, and is electro-less nickel plated, it will never warp out of shape like plastic dashers do. The imported Norwegian Beechwood blades are self-adjusting to ensure the thorough scraping of the inside of the can.

  • All prices quoted on the Antique Ice Cream Freezer page are indicative US prices at November 2005 - prices may change - please check with the retailer.
