I am a huge ice cream fan so for my birthday this year I was given a Ice Cream maker, I was a little skeptical as I did not think you could beat some of the ice creams that I have eaten in the past from shops, but I was wrong home made ice cream is better than ice cream from the shops.
The Kenwood IM200 ice cream maker that I was given has a 1.1 litre capacity and within an hour I have ice cream in any flavour of my choice. Not only can you make ice cream, you can also make sorbet and frozen yoghurt.
The ice cream maker helps to keep the mixture moving while it freezes, which makes sure that your ice creams remains smooth and lump free.
You can put any of your favourite flavours and ingredients into you ice cream maker and you can even try and invent some of your own flavours. If you need your ice cream to freeze quickly the process is faster if you add all cold ingredients that you have just take out of the fridge.
You need to make sure that you put the mixture into the machine when it is churning otherwise your ice cream may not work. If you do not need all of your mixture you can place it into the freezer and eat it at a later date. I recommend that you take it out of the freezer and allow it to defrost for a few minutes before eating it.
The only disadvantage is that this ice cream maker has a canister that should be placed into the freezer 24 hours before use. This means that making ice cream is not something that you do on a spare of the moment. Although if you have enough space in your freezer you can keep the bowl in there permanently ready to use.
There are many different recipes that are available for making ice cream, but you need to try a few before you find the perfect recipe that you prefer. One of my favourite flavours to make is plain and simple vanilla and later in the process you can ripple any of your favourite flavours through, I quite like to add small fudge pieces.
An overall great machine and it is reasonably priced unlike other various ice cream makers on the market. It is a must have for any ice cream fan.
Summary: any flavour of your choice
