About Wolfgang Puck
Austrian-born Wolfgang Puck began his formal training at age 14, inspired by his mother, Maria, a hotel chef. Encouraged by a friend, Wolfgang left Europe in 1973 at the age of 24, having already learned his craft as a classically trained French chef in the master kitchens of three-star French restaurants. After a stint at the restaurant La Tour in Indianapolis, Puck made the move to Los Angeles in 1975, and became both chef and part owner of Ma Maison, which quickly became a magnet for the rich and famous - with Puck as the starring attraction. Fame and acclaim quickly followed with his unique combination of dynamic personality and a culinary brilliance that bridged tradition and invention. Wolfgang has changed the way North Americans cook and eat by mixing formal French techniques and Asian- and California-influenced esthetics with the highest quality ingredients. Over a span of twenty years, he has founded a virtual empire of dining establishments, including 12 fine dining restaurants, and the newer Wolfgang Puck Bistro, Express and Cafe locations across the United States, into Canada and Japan. He has authored six popular cookbooks, and his weekly syndicated newspaper column, “Wolfgang Puck’s Kitchen,” appears in more than 30 newspapers throughout the United States and Canada, with a combined circulation of more than 5.3 million.
Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Inc. (WPW), a privately held corporation, includes a rapidly growing international franchise of the fast-casual Wolfgang Puck Express restaurants, consumer products, book publishing, television, radio and internet programming, and other licensing and merchandising projects.

Great little machine!
Found this machine on clearance and thought I'd give it a try as I've tried the crank and the ice/salt machines which work "sometimes". But this machine has given us wonderful sorbets, sherbets, low fat and full fat ice creams and they all turn out wonderful and free of "junk" ingredients. If you love frozen desserts this is a very good machine. Just follow the simple directions and you'll have wonderful additive free desserts in no time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is an amazing machine. Very well built, solid machine. There is nothing better than fresh homemade icecream. Just be sure to read the instructions -- It is Simple -- if you choose to cook the ingredients first then throw them in the freezer for 20 mins to cool them before pouring into the machine and when you turn the timer on, let the machine run for 5 minutes before you pour your mixture in.It really is that simple. Read the instructions once before you start and you will be very pleased with this unit. I would highly recommend this machine to anyone that likes ice cream.

Very heavy machine. It works well. I have made ice cream twice, and a slush drink. If the liquid you're wanting to freeze isn't really cold, it takes a while to make ice cream. You can't add piping hot ice cream, or even warm, unless you want to be starting the timer over again over. The first time I made ice cream, I put the mixture into the fridge over night before placing in the ice cream machine. It took an hour before I had soft serve ice cream.Just make sure your ice cream mixture is super cold before placing into your machine.This ice cream machine is fairly quiet. Just turn on the timer and it'll start up. I looked everywhere for an on switch. There isn't one. Only a timer dial. It automatically turns off after the timer goes off. If you want the machine to go off sooner, you have to unplug it.I bought this machine because it was less expensive than a lot of compressor type ice cream makers.I love that you don't have a pale that goes into the freezer.Bucket is easy to remove when the ice cream is ready. There is a handle.Comes with manual, and 2 or 3 recipes.It can be a pain to clean if any of the ice cream got outside of the bucket and into the machine itself. You can't take the whole thing apart..Otherwise, I am enjoying this ice cream maker. It's great for frozen drinks, frozen yogurt as well as ice cream, gellato.. custard.
