Antique Ice Cream Makers

Look at the forefront of the glass case with the Victorian ice cream makers. The 'White Mountain' Triple Motion Freezer advert lists the most popular ice cream maker of the times. It is a banded wooden bucket with a metal can inside. This distinct ice cream maker has triple motion blades to effectively churn the ice cream. However, like most other ice cream makers, by turning the can clockwise, the outer mixer moves counterclockwise, scraping the inside of the can thoroughly and moving the colder cream inward until it meets the inner mixer. The inner mixer, turning clockwise, moves the cream in reverse with an upward motion, eventually achieving a whipped, creamy texture.

Generally, ice cream was made by pouring cream into a metal cylinder within the bucket and filling the space between the cylinder and the bucket with ice and salt. Ice and salt react together to lower the temperature below freezing. The cream was moved around by turning the handle so that it froze evenly.

Did you know?
The 'White Mountain Co.' Freezer has been so successful, that the designed has remained relatively unchanged since its inception the late 1800s.

The first recorded serving of ice cream was to King Charles II in 1672 at a banquet, where it was served only to the King and his closest friends. Other banquet guests looked on with envy.
