Great White Mountain Tradition
Over one hundred and forty-two years ago the White Mountain Freezer Company was founded to build the patented Triple Motion Ice Cream Freezer. The company was originally sited in Nashua, New Hampshire primarily because Nashua was the very heart of the growing area for long grain New England white pine, so essential to the manufacturer of the wood tubs used in the White Mountain Ice Cream Freezer.
Originally staffed by European artisans skilled in casting, machining, and woodworking, the company gradually acquired a reputation for building the "Best Ice Cream Freezer in America." Many of these artisans stayed with the company their entire working life and brought their sons and daughters into the business. Today, they still have employees who have spent their entire careers building the best ice cream freezers in the world.
Materials and Construction of a White Mountain Ice Cream Freezer
White Mountain uses only the highest quality; metals, woods, and manufacturing processes to produce the White Mountain ice cream freezer. Stainless steel for the cream cans, tin electro plating for the heavy duty iron castings, imported Norwegian beech wood scraper blades, and the finest quality white pine combine to become the best ice cream makers that money can buy.
A good example of their commitment to exceptional quality is the wood freezer tub. Each tub is constructed of 3/4 inch thick select New England white pine staves, creating a tub which provides superior insulation for the rock salt and ice brine solution. This tongue and groove bucket is hand crafted in White Mountain's own cooperage and is finished with three coats of sealer, stain and lacquer. The 4 & 6 quart sizes have a maple stain finish. They take as much pride in making their ice cream tubs as do the finest furniture makers in the world.
Gear Frame and Motors of the White Mountain Ice Cream Freezer
The White Mountain Ice Cream Freezer features a strong cast iron gear case with a 3 gear drive that is simple, sure, and smooth. As the cream can turns clockwise, the outer mixer moves counterclockwise, scraping the inside of the can thoroughly with its scrapers and moving the cooler cream inward until it meets the inner mixer. The inner mixer, turning clockwise, moves the cream in a reverse horizontal direction and imparts an upward motion due to the design of the floats. This exclusive triple motion of the White Mountain Ice Cream Freezer properly mixes and beats the entire cream contents resulting in a smoother ice cream and provides a definite path of circulation which ensures; even, thorough, and efficient freezing. The electric units use a geared down 12,000 r.p.m. universal motor that will run on 115 volt A.C. or D.C. power.
The non-electric models utilize a similar mixing motion that is activated by the hand crank. The Joy of Cooking cookbook by Erma F. Rombauer & Marion Rombauer Becker describes the White Mountain® manual ice cream freezers as being able to produce the best ice cream available. The changing of the cadence at a certain point in the process creates a finished product that can't be matched by large batch electric ice cream making machinery. Don't kid yourself. Cranking is hard work. Consider the electric models for the ease of use and uninterrupted production. Once you start the process of freezing your mix you should consider toughing it out until the batch is finished. With the electric units you can still talk on the phone while your White Mountain Ice Cream Freezer does all of the really hard work.
