i have owned this machine for about 18 months now, it has broken about 8 motor arms in that time, the internal components are made of cheap plastic cogs that shatter the teeth when the ice cream you are churning starts to thicken, the timer dial is of poor quality and has been broken due to accidental over turning.it is also very noisey as the arm starts to age, and the compresor slows down with age which makes the churning process take longer, BUT the ice creams and sorbets that ive churned...
