Rated 2 out of 5 by TheaT Roller coaster ride
This has been a bit of a roller coaster ride. The first machine fused all the lights in the house. The replacement made a loud grinding noise. The second replacement (touch wood) is behaving well. Despite this saga, overall, the machine is very easy to use and the parts are easy to wash up. If it continues to behave, I reckon it will pay for itself within 2 years. And the ice creams and sorbets we have made are delicious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Speybox Really good, but a couple of pointers...
This piece of kit turns out a lovely product and I have no complaints at all. It is the perfect tool for an ice cream addict. There are a couple of things to note, though.
Firstly, make sure you have enough space to store it (doh!), so check the listed dimensions
Secondly, and less obvious, it has to be minded when making Kulfi. We used the cheat way which includes carnation milk. The resulting mixture is quite thick and would cause the motor to stall. Hence, it must be monitored, in order to stop the machine at the right point.
All the other mixes can be made without supervision as you can set the timer.
The end product is superbly smooth. I prefer ice cream that does not melt before you get to it, so I would still recommend a short spell in the freezer to harden it off properly. If you don't, it can be eaten straight from the machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by littlehousej Easy to use and makes delicious ice cream
I bought this ice cream maker for my husband for Christmas. I thought it was the ideal gift as he adores ice cream. He was thrilled and he never missed an opportunity during Christmas to try a new flavour.
The best thing about this ice cream maker is that it makes delicious ice cream really easily.
Finding a place to store it is a little tricky , as it is quite bulky. It seems robust, so hopefully it will last a long time.

I've wanted to move up from my basic machine, which needs the bowl to be frozen, for ages and am so pleased with this machine.
I've made ice cream gelato and sorbet so far and all turned out really well with smooth creamy texture. Frozen yoghurt next.
It's simple to use, easy to clean and although it is a little noisy, it's no more than my other machine and with the timer you don't need to be in the room while it's working.
I would definitely recommend it.

Easy to use and produces quality ice cream in no time. So much better than my previous entry-level ice cream maker, where the base needed to be put in the freezer for 10 hours first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HABHAB An excellent ice cream maker
I was choosing between this one and the Sage to replace my old poorly designed Magimix. In the end, I chose this one because of its bigger capacity and much simpler to use than the Sage. Besides, the Sage has too many unnecessary fancy functions. To be honest, who needs the machine to play a tune like an ice cream van when the ice cream is done?
