This was a huge hit. It really is pretty simple to assemble and makes creating frozen treats a breeze. One issue that keeps it from being 5 stars is one simple issue during cleanup. The mixing bowl with the self contained freezer pack is an amazing idea, but when you are done using the maker and you remove the bowl it drips out a little into the maker as it is removed. If they could figure out a way to only have to clean the bowl and nozzle when you are done it would be a 5 star product, but as it stands with the bowl dripping during removal, you have to clean the inside of the machine between the bowl and nozzle as well. Kind of a pain.
Its also a little noise, but quieter than most traditional ice cream makers
