Oh Wow! Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker

I don't care that it's December. I can't wait for the warmer weather to tell you all about this awesome gadget - you need to know now! The Play and Freeze Ice Cream Maker (£24.95) requires no batteries ... just some muscle power - Seriously folks, this would make the perfect after-dinner activity on Christmas Day!

All you need to do is fill the outer chamber of this nifty little device with rock salt and as many ice cubes as you can squeeze in, and close it up. Then you mix up your ice cream mix (try this chocolate recipe) and pour it into the inner chamber. Simples! Hehe.

The Sciency Bit:

When salt comes into contact with ice, the freezing point of the ice is lowered. More salt means a lower freezing point for the ice. Now, in order for ice to melt it needs to absorb heat from its surroundings. By lowering the temperature that ice is frozen results in the cream mix freezing.

But, you don't really need to know about this ... let's get to ...

The Fun Bit!:

Once you've loaded your ball it's time for the fun to begin. There's no batteries in this little baby - it's pure people power that turns your mixture into ice cream. With the clever science taking care of the freezing thing, all you have to do is toss, roll and the ball about. The manufacturers reckon it'll take about 30 to 40 minutes of playing catch with the Play and Freeze for the magic ball to turn your cream mixture into a pint of frozen treat.

The Play and Freeze is a super-fun way to make pudding, and just think of the calories you can burn ... to make room for more ice cream!
