Hobart N50 KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment Compatability

I know this is a baking forum, but thought this wouldn't be too far off topic.  It is after all about "cooking" up some Ice Cream!

I have a Hobart N50 and decided to try out the KitchenAid KICA0WH Icream Maker attachmet to see if it would work.  It fits so far.   I'm freezing the bowl now and will try to make some Ice Cream over the next couple days and shoot another Video about how that works out.


I tried embedding the Youtube Video but that does not seem to work.  Above is the Link.

I don't know if you still make ice cream, but instead of the modern version, I can totally recommend the  2 quart 1960s kitchenaid ice cream maker.

The ice-cream from the modern attachments seams they are fighting a losing battle with temperature of the gel.  With the older version using ice and lots of salt, the temperature remains a consistent -17 degrees Celsius  (about 0 deg F).   At that temperature, ice cream is fully formed somewhere between 4 and 8 minutes.  4min = soft serve, 8min = you can eat right now.

Just a heads up, the small size of the ice well means it does benefit from very small ice cube size (I use the old kitchenaid pelican head ice disk and the size is perfect).
