I read a review on this product a few weeks ago and just had to have one.
I did an initial search and was surprised how expensive they cost, £54.98 on Amazon, I did a surf over several days and managed to get one for just under £16 including postage from ocean tree trading on Ebay, brand new but black graded(?) Anyone it arrived very quickly and I can see no defects on the item or box.
Why I wanted
Completely sold when read review. My fruit bowl often has bananas on the turn, and once they start going black on the peel, no one will touch them. So the thought of freezing them rather throwing out was very appealing. Also doubly appealing was the thought of creating ice cream from them as although my kids love fruit, it was still appealing to think of a healthy treat.
Its basically a blender, with a chute to push the frozen bananas in. Its a bit fiddly to take apart to clean but relatively simple to dismantle and reassemble. Its mains operated.
Despite the hype saying otherwise, we unanimously agree it tastes like mashed up frozen banana not ice cream and again agree YUCK. I do intend to drag this from the back of the cupboard once the strawberries and other soft fruits are free and in abundance to see if mixing them provides a better taste but it would have to be a massive improvement.
Scoring a 1, as gutted. Was genuinely excited when I read about it and now I'll have this at the back of my cupboard till my next major kitchen clear out.
