At just 5.2 inches wide by 6.9 inches tall, this slim gadget doesn’t take up too much counter space and has a detachable spindle that mixes at two speeds. The device comes with a 28-ounce stainless steel mixing cup that's dishwasher-safe and clicks into place so you know when it’s ready to go. When you’re done making your yummy cold treat, the head tilts back so you can easily remove the cup and start enjoying your creation. Ultimately, the best part about this machine is that you get to decide what goes into your dessert. You can add anything you want, from different bases like yogurt or custard to fun stir-ins like coconut, berries, or chocolate chips.

Many customers love the retro, 1950s aesthetic of this gadget, which has a 4.4-star rating and more than 4400 reviews on Amazon. “We totally enjoy it and love the easy-clean aspects compared to a traditional blender or processor,” one customer wrote.
