    With the ice cream ball I remember as a kid making ice cream in a very similar way with two different sized metal coffee cans.

          I just realized, why dont you have both of them react at the same time? It would save you lots of editing time and make the tests a lot easier too.

                  Let's admit it, Ben is intentionally to make the tongs seems useless to protect his pathetic pride.

                    That ice cream ball - my summer camp did the same thing with a small coffee can inside a large coffee can. Sometimes a bit of salt water would leak into the ice cream, which I rather liked. Good fun on hot afternoons.

                            I mean, maybe James is a good actor and all, but he looked forlorn when he said "but maybe I'm not fun..."
                            Or maybe I'm in a weird mood RN. Who knows.
                            BUT if you can't kick, smack or toss the ice cream ball AND it doesn't make great ice cream then it really isn't that fun. Let's all be honest here.

                                              We made ice cream in middle school science, with a big coffee tin and a small coffee tin, the ice and salt went between them. Of course, my partner threw our tin at me, and it landed at my feet and splashed salty ice water all up my jeans, so I looked like I had very poorly acid washed those jeans for as long as I had them.

                                                      The one thing those tongs are good for is taco meat. It scoops it up great to put in the shell.

They're microwave machines but my jacket potato maker cost me £30 and it's the best invention ever! It has metal inside go oven roast the potato and silicone on the outside to put in the microwave. 17 mind for an oven roast potato!
