Cast iron gear drive
-Exclusive three-gear "Triple Action" drive thoroughly mixes the cream, ensuring a smooth texture and fast, even freezing. (Electric models use twin precision steel gears.)
Wooden Tub-New England pine slats (1/2" thick) are bound with tight galvanized hoops and electroplated fittings to ensure lasting stability.
Stainless Steel Can-Warranted for five full years! Tall and narrow design brings more of the cream into contact with cold can for faster freezing. Cast aluminum lid.
Dasher and Blades-Solid cast iron dasher won't give out as cream hardens. Like all the fixtures, it's nickel-plated for corrosion resistance. Beech blades self-adjust to scrape inside of cream can thoroughly and will not split, chip or warp in the dishwasher.
Helpful Hint: White Mountain freezer tubs are made the old-fashioned way. Old-fashioned wood tubs work better than modern plastic tubs because wood is a superior insulator. However, when stored in a dry location, the tub may dry out. This causes the wood boards (staves) to shrink. Storing the barrel overnight in a wet location like the basement or filling it with water usually causes the wood boards to swell and seal once again.
