How do you attach the ice cream maker to the tilt-head mixer?

If you've treated yourself to the KitchenAid ice cream maker, here's how to assemble it and attach it to your tilt-head 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 tilt-head 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.
