I love ice cream and I have this special affinity to ice cream makers. I have tried a few ice cream makers and I
am also constantly searching for other models to try. I am making this ice cream makers buying guide to help other
people specially parents on what type of ice cream makers they should purchase for their families. By having your
own ice cream makers at home, you will be able to make your own nutritious ice creams and yogurts without all the
preservatives that commercial labels have. You also get to experiment on different combination of flavors and you
get to have a variety of ice cream choices every single day.
Selecting a good ice cream maker
Right now, I am using the Cuisinart ICE-21 Frozen Yogurt- Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker. I got it at a very
affordable price alongside with a Breville BJE510XL (check it
out!) and it was less than a hundred dollars. Out of all ice cream makers that I have tried, this is
definitely the best ice cream maker for me. The design is very simple and it does not have complicated buttons and
functions. My family and I are able to enjoy ice creams and sorbets in as fast as 20 to 30 minutes. Since it is
automatic, all I have to do is place all ingredients through the opening and turn the machine on.
It does the rest of the job and I can easily prepare other things in the kitchen while my ice cream is being
churned. Its capacity is 1.5 quarts. Other people may find it small but this is perfect for my family of 4. Of
course, I do not want to over feed them with ice cream so we simply divide this amongst ourselves. And I
think having this capacity makes it possible for you to try different flavors and not get stuck with a single
flavor for a whole week.
If you check out for blenders in places like woyano.com you will find that another great Ice Cream
maker they recommend is the DeLonghi GM6000 Gelato Maker with Self-Refrigerating Compressor. This great
looking ice cream maker is packed with great features. I personally do not own a DeLonghi ice cream maker but my
sister owns one and I have tried using it many times whenever I’m in her place. This is a fairly compact unit quite
similar to Cuisinart ICE-21. But my sister seriously thinks that this is the best ice cream maker ever created.
Think one of the primary reasons why this is so is because unlike the Cuisinart ICE-21 ice cream maker, the
DeLonghi unit does not require its cylinder to be placed inside the freezer for a long time. That means, there will
be no waiting. This unit has a built-in self- refrigerating compressor that chills the ingredients inside as it is
churning and mixing. This unit also uses a unique mixing process wherein the contents are mixed from the top to the
bottom. This dramatically improves the texture of the finished product.
Hamilton Beach 6833OR
The Hamilton Beach 6833OR 4-Quart Automatic Ice Cream Maker was the model that I as using before I bought the
Cuisinart ICE-21. I actually really liked this unit since it also is very simple and easy to use. In under an hour,
I am able to enjoy fresh and healthy desserts and ice creams that I can share with my family and friends. Yes, I
can definitely share with friends since this unit is capable of making 4 quarts or a gallon of ice cream. This is
perfect for families with more members than 4, and it is also perfect for parties and functions at home. But unlike
Cuisinart ICE-21, this unit form Hamilton Beach requires ice to be placed around the canister for it to chill. But
it is an overall excellent product.
Hopefully, my ice cream makers buying guide was able to help you look for the perfect equipment for your
