Close adult supervision must be provided when this appliance is used by or near children.

Keep ice cream maker out of reach of children.

Avoid any contact with moving parts. Fingers, hair, clothing, etc. should be kept away during operation.

Never turn upside down or lay on its side. If the unit has been placed in a non-upright position for whatever reason, place the unit upright on a flat surface for at least 12 hours before using.

Using attachments not recommended or sold by Keystone Manufacturing Co., Inc. may cause hazards.

Do not operate with a damaged cord or plug. If the appliance is not working as it should, has been dropped or damaged, left outdoors or dropped into water, do not use it and return it to the manufacturer for proper service and replacement or repair.

Always unplug from outlet when not in use and before installing, cleaning and removing parts.

For indoor use only.

Do not place near hot gas or electric burner.

Keep at least 34 inch away from walls or other objects that could obstruct free air circulation.

Do not let the cord hang over the edge of a table or counter.

The removable bowl should NEVER be used in a conventional oven, microwave oven, on top of the range or on any other heat source. DO NOT use the removable bowl to blend hot liquids.

Keep utensils out of the canister while in use to reduce the risk of harm to persons or to the ice cream maker. SHARP OR METAL UTENSILS OR OBJECTS SHOULD NOT BE USED ON THE INSIDE OF THE CONTAINER. They can scratch or damage it. Rubber or wooden utensils may be used when the ice cream maker is off.

Do not clean with metal scrubbing pads. Pieces can break off the pad and short-circuit electrical parts, creating a possibility of an electrical shock.

To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse plug, cord or motor base in water or any other liquid. This may cause personal injury and damage the unit.

Do not use an extension cord with this ice cream maker. However, if one is used, it must have a rating equal to or exceeding the rating of this appliance.

The ice cream maker is for household use only.

The ice cream maker should not be used for other than the intended use.

To reduce the risk of personal injury, always unplug the motor top before inserting or removing the paddle.

Before First Use

1.Remove all packing materials and literature.

2.Wash the removable bowl, clear-vue lid and paddle in warm soapy water. Rinse and dry all parts thoroughly. NEVER immerse motor top or compressor in water or any other liquid. NEVER clean any parts in a dishwasher.

3.Place the ice cream maker upright on a flat surface for at least 12 hours before using for the first time. This allows the oil contained in the compressor to settle. The same procedure should be followed whenever the ice cream maker has been placed in a non-upright position for whatever reason.

NOTE: When using your ice cream maker for the first time, you may experience an odor and possibly a slight wisp of smoke from the body. This is caused by the heat curing the insulation that protects the motor. This is normal and after the first few uses will disappear.

How To Assemble

1.Make sure the unit is unplugged before assembling.

2.Place the clear-vue lid into the bottom of the motor top by pressing the lockpin. (Figure 1)

3.Insert the stir paddle into the motor top until it snaps into position. NOTE: It is important that the stir paddle fits into the correct slots, otherwise the ice cream maker will not operate correctly. (Figure 2)

4.Insert the removable bowl into the stainless steel cylinder of the ice cream maker’s body.

5.Place the stir paddle attached to the motor top into the bowl. Rotate motor clockwise until it locks into place. Plug the motor top into the back of the compressor. (Figure 3)

How To Operate

For best results chill the mixture thoroughly before making ice cream. Chill 4 hours in the refrigerator or 1 hour in the freezer until the mixture begins to crystallize.

1.Place the unit on a flat stable surface allowing adequate space around it for ventilation.

2.Assemble the unit following the standard assembly instructions.

3.Plug the power cord into a wall outlet.

4.Press the “compressor” button. The indicator light shows the chilling system is working. Let the chilling system run for 5 minutes before pouring in ingredients.


5.After the chilling system has run for the required 5 minutes, set the timer to the desired setting and press start. (There are three different options, 10, 30, and 50 minutes.) Note: We recommend setting the timer to 50 minutes when first making ice cream. After 30 minutes, check the consistency.

6.Turn on the motor top by pressing the On/Off button on the top of the motor.

7.Pour ingredients in through opening in lid. NEVER fill the bowl more than half full. During the last minutes of the freezing process, the ice cream expands in volume until it fills the bowl.

IMPORTANT: Avoid turning off the compressor button before the ice cream is ready. If the button is turned off or in the event of a power failure, the chilling process automatically stops for about 5 minutes, jeopardizing the success of the ice cream.

8.When the ice cream has reached a good consistency, (after about 30-50 minutes) the stir paddle rotation reverses

direction, indicating that the ice cream is ready. If you require slightly denser ice cream, leave the compressor button on for an extra 5 to 10 minutes.

9.Turn off the On/Off button on top of the motor and unplug the unit.

10.Press the motor top release button and remove the motor (including the clear-vue lid and stir paddle) by rotating counter clockwise.

11.Remove the ice cream from the removable bowl using a

5plastic scoop or wooden spoon to avoid damaging the walls and bottom of the container.

12.After the removable bowl reaches room temperature, wipe away ice cream residue with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly.

IMPORTANT: Remember to turn the chilling switch off, otherwise the ice cream will freeze into a block of ice.

Using The Electric Timer

The timer allows you to set a desired period of time to make your ice cream. If the hardness of the ice cream is not the desired consistency, reset the timer and the buzzer will sound when the time is up.

There are three time settings (10 min, 30 min, 50 min). The LED on the top of the unit will flash indicating the time selected.

Press the start button on the control panel to start the timer. Press the button on the paddle motor to begin rotation of stir paddle.

The buzzer will sound during the last 10-30 seconds of the set time to warn you that the time is almost up and that the paddle motor will shut off.
