Ice-cream Maker

Modern ice-cream makers are inexpensive and easy to use (no hand-cranking, ice, or rock salt required.) The canister, which holds a freezing agent, must be placed in the freezer for at least eight hours before using. I recommend the Cuisinart brand. You can purchase an extra bowl (or even two!) if you want to produce different flavors of ice cream in a row.
