Great product.

published

Great little machine bowl alittle to small . And mixture has to be refrigerated overnight to maximise to icecream texture. Machine alittle noisey but that’s ok. Colours are a great addition to my kitchen. Priced range ok. Also makes great sorbet and youghurt good little product and easy recipe to follow.

Fantastic Ice-cream maker

published

With this particular older model it is necessary to freeze the churner, which just means being organised if you want to make ice-cream. Churns well and ice-cream is made in about 20 minutes. Love this product.

Waste of effort

published

I have used other ice cream makers for years, regularly making ice cream once a month. As my old machine died I was excited to receive a new lighter model for xmas. Freezing the bowl for over 48 hours and even after churning for 40 minutes there was no change to the liquid. I tried again and doubling checking that instructions were followed to the letter - no difference. It is really worth buying a compressor mdel and definitely not buying this one.

Beautiful ice cream.

published

I bought one recently on sale after checking the reviews on this site. I can't say I found it particularly noisy as others say. My other kitchen appliances can be just as noisy. Started with the basic vanilla ice cream and have to say it's the nicest I've ever had. You do have to freeze the inner bowl overnight in the freezer but my daughter bought an ice cream maker that was three times the price and you still have to do that. It's not instantaneous but nothing you create of quality is. The ice cream came out with the consistency of soft serve but you can harden it up if you prefer it that way by putting it in the freezer for a short while. I can't wait to try out my other recipes and maybe create some myself.

Disappointed ICE-21A

published

Twice I have tried making chocolate sorbet using the recipe in their book. My bowl on both occasions was in the freezer for at least a week and not taken out until the last minute. So I don't understand why after 30 minutes of turning my sorbet is still runny.

Very easy to use and versatile

published

This is very easy to use and you can add lots of different ingredients to it; the large size is relatively easy to clean as there are hardly any small crevices to get into. Apart from having to freeze the bowl for several hours - I would imagine you have to do that with most of them - it's hassle-free.

Lovely!

published

A friend served up the best chocolate ice cream I'd ever tasted and I asked where she got it. She told me she made it herself and showed me her icecream maker. That was enough for me! I found one online and just love it. The recipe/instruction booklet has some GREAT recipes and the machine makes a lovely smooth icecream. I am yet to use it for yoghurts etc, but so far it's fabulous.
easy to use, great recipe booklet, efficient.
It can be noisy but that's ok... it makes ice-cream...I don't mind a little noise if it means ICECREAM!

Great Ice-cream

published

I purchased this ice cream maker about a month ago. It makes beautiful ice cream and it is really easy to use! The ice cream produces smooth/ creamy ice cream and so much better then store bought!! You need to freeze the bowl well- at least a day. Easy to clean.
I really love the machine but the only downside I have is that I think the machine is of cheap quality, the motor at times sounds like it is struggling. Other than that I really do love this ice cream maker
makes beautiful ice cream
motor stuggles at times

Easy and Fast!!

published

Easy to use, easy to clean, comes with recipe book but you can make any recipe you like using this machine. We can't go back to store bought ice cream. Only takes about 15 minutes. Bowl needs to freeze for a good 24 hours between uses but you can buy a second bowl. I have had the machine for about 6 months now and use it every week. Not an overly noisy motor either. Worth every penny.

Near excellent

published

Very easy to use, and happy with the results. Only drawback is that you need to freeze the tub for 24 hours before use, so you will always need to plan ahead before use. Very easy to clean.

The expensive refrigerated units would be more convenient, yet I hear they are heavy and bulky to store.
Reliable, works well

Its works plugged in to the standard wall plug.

Kazzaasked

Does anyone else have a problem with the ice-cream sticking to the sides of the bowl creating a thick hard layer on the side that's hard to get off and doesn't have the ice-cream texture. Tried a few recipes and all does the same.

Rachel Landers

Yes that’s common because the bowel is frozen the mixture closet will freeze.
