Sterling ice cream makers are out of production as of 2015, so the easiest way to obtain one is through listings on online auction sites like eBay. Both private sellers and companies use eBay, so a range of used and reconditioned Sterling products are available there.
Sterling ice cream makers were manufactured by the Richmond Cedar Works company in Danville, Virginia. The products featured aluminum freezer buckets and wooden outers. Despite the fact that they have not been produced for some time, many used versions in good working order are still available, both online and in local thrift stores. Boxed Sterling ice cream makers are also occasionally available, though they are rarely in "as new" condition.
