How do you attach the ice cream maker to the bowl-lift mixer?

If you've treated yourself to the KitchenAid ice cream maker, here's how to assemble it and attach it to your bowl-lift mixer. Get ready for the fun...

Making ice cream is fun and simple with this attachment. Before you attach the ice cream maker (5KICA0WH) to the bowl-lift mixer, make sure you remove the 'Do not immerse in water' label. The dasher is dishwasher-safe, but the freezer bowl and drive assembly need to be washed by hand.

NOTE: The freeze bowl must be completely frozen to make ice cream, so use it as soon as you remove it from the freezer, as it begins to thaw once removed.

Here are the steps for how to attach the ice cream maker to the bowl-lift mixer:

  1. Turn the mixer to off (speed '0') and unplug. how do you attach the ice cream maker to the bowl lift mixer step 1

  3. Fit the freeze bowl in place over the locating pins. Press down on the back of the freeze bowl until the bowl pin snaps into the spring latch. NOTE: The freeze bowl is designed to fill all bowl-lift mixers. If the bowl pin at the back of the bowl is too short or too long to snap into the spring latch, remove and rotate the bowl, so the opposite bowl pin faces the spring latch.
