Member Name: makeuprox
Advantages: Easy to clean, simple instructions
Disadvantages: Bowl has to freeze beforehand and can be hard to fit in freezer
I was lucky enough to receive this as a birthday present. I'd never used an ice-cream maker before so was worried it would be complicated.
However this machine is easy to use, there aren't too many parts - just a bowl (which you need to freeze for 24hrs beforehand) and then a paddle and lid which incorporates a funnel.
The machine comes with instructions and a few simple recipes. I made an orange sorbet and it was very easy to do, and made a really delicious treat. The ice-cream / sorbet is soft scoop but you can easily transfer to a tub to freeze for longer to get a harder ice- cream.
There are a couple of things to be aware of - you need to freeze the bowl for 24hrs and it was hard to fit in the freezer - we definitely need to defrost our freezer to fit it in more easily. The other thing is that the bowl needs to be dry when you put it in or the water will freeze in bowl and paddle won't fit. The guide recommends storing in a plastic bag and next time will definitely do this. Also the bowl is very cold when it comes out, so best to use gloves or towel to handle.
However, in short, I love it! Once you've put the mixture in the machine you can just leave it to work it's magic! Very straightforward to use and makes just the right amount, not too little and not too much.
Summary: Good ice cream maker for all
