Will a new ice cream maker make my ice cream set firmer?

Was interested in looking up the White Mountain model you have till I read the reviews and saw consistently poor remarks about it- new company purchased it- not gonna do it- maybe the hand crank version but no way motorized.

I have the best results same day- at -5 degrees using my high end Sub Zero freezer- I put the base in a ziplock bag. Then put ice and water and salt in a steel bowl - chill down the bag in the bowl and pop it right into the Cuisinart-chill a few hrs in the freezer in a plastic quart tub and perfection. I eat the stuff off the side after scraping the tub into the container which is so cold it reminds me of dippin dots :)

@tatamagouche lol.
and @Kyosa I know you tried it 4 years ago but why not substitute lime juice, add mint and the lime twist when you use le vert... J'ai le vert aussi and I'm not about to go out and buy le jaune

Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes

i agree with roundabout- its unnecessarily complicated but DO separate, beat whites till frothy and light- its everything to this recipe- absolutely no need to heat the milk- you're not making ice cream. Just melt the butter in the microwave and add it to the cold milk to cool. I actually make my own homemade ricotta and used 1 cup of milk and a 1/2 cup buttermilk for these and they were light and incredible!
