World's First At-Home Automatic Soft Serve Ice Cream Machine – Ice Cream Depot

About Us


Inventor and dad Dick Pahl developed Ice Cream Depot as a gift to his children. “My goal was to make a machine that could have dessert ready while my family finished eating dinner,” he says. The result was the world’s first at-home soft serve ice cream machine.

After collaborating with his kids and his wife, he created a machine that not only produces soft serve ice cream in less than 15 minutes, but also churns out milkshakes, slushies, protein shakes, and frozen adult beverages.

Six patents and years of research and development later, Dick and his business partner Greg Walsh are proud to share the most revolutionary kitchen appliance since the breadmaker.

Ice Cream Depot is an American company with deep family values.
