Utensils For Making Ice Cream

There are some cooking utensils you will need to make your ice cream. Most of these you probably already have in the kitchen.utensils for making ice cream

Measuring cups – Dry measuring cups in U.S. standard 1/8 cup, 1/3 cup, 1/4 cup, 1/2 cup and 1 cup sizes, or your country’s equivalent, are a necessity in any kitchen. You can also find sets that come with additional recipe-friendly sizes of 2/3 cup and 3/4 cup. You’ll need these to measure sugar, cocoa, nuts, coconut…any dry ingredient you use.

Liquid measuring cup – for at least 1 cup to measure creams and milk. I find that Pyrex pours the best with their wider spouts. The liquid doesn’t tend to run down the side when I’m trying to pour into a smaller area.

Measuring spoons – You’ll need these to measure out extract or liquid flavors.

Fork or Whisk – used to very lightly beat your eggs or egg yolks.

Bowls – for eggs, combining sugar and cocoa separately, etc. A good set of heat resistant mixing bowls is always useful in the kitchen. Pyrex even has a set of 8 bowls now with individual lids for easy storage or freezing.

Saucepan – For cooking the ice cream custard when using eggs. A 4 qt. saucepan works well for 1-1/2 to 2 quart batches of ice cream.

Spatula – Very handy for getting all of the cream from measuring cups, custard from saucepan, and ice cream cream from canister or bowl into your freezer container.

Spoons – Stirring ingredients and custard.

Freezer Containers – To store your ice cream when it’s done. A 64 oz. container works great for 1-1/2 quart batches.

Not only is ice cream easy to make, the utensils for making ice cream are those you probably already have!
