Science of Cooking: Ice Cream


What you get

Science is never cooler than when you’re using it to make ice cream! Dig into a series of kitchen chemistry experiments and kid-friendly recipes for ice cream and sorbet — made using just the tools in this crate and some ingredients from home. Learn about the science behind ice crystals and freezing, how air is one of the most important ingredients in ice cream, and how stabilizers help keep dessert delicious. Then customize the included recipes to make all sorts of creamy concoctions — from choco-cherry ice cream to fresh fruit sorbet!

This crate does not include any food ingredients, including rock salt. Food prep tools should be washed before use.

Notes Notebook

From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

I've had enough ice cream, said no one ever. That's why we wanted to be sure our ice cream–making tools would hold up to lots (and lots) of use.

By the numbers

Ice cream scoopers tested: 7

Batches of ice cream made: at least 15

Ice cream considered in testing of this crate: a lot, but we'd still eat more!

I'm pretty sure I'm even more excited about this kit than my kid! We're still playing around with sorbets and having a blast. Everything in this kit is good quality and kid-friendly. The instruction book even has thick, stain-resistant pages that can handle life in a messy kitchen.

The equipment was legit nice. The pieces will last longer than a week like with most toys. The instructions are well done. The recipe was yummy. We've tried vanilla so far.
