Nothing beats homemade ice cream and the riot of flavours you can experiment with, plus how fabulous to present guests with homemade ice cream as dessert – so more or less now with a flick of a switch you have some great easy to use and look after ice cream makers
The Cuisinart ICE30BCU ice cream maker allows you to create ice cream, frozen yoghurt, sorbets and frozen drinks within your home. It’s fully automatic, features an open lid to allow ingredients to be added while in motion, for complete ease of use. A 2-litre freezer bowl, mixing paddle and lid are all detachable for easy cleaning.
The Smart Scoop™ Ice Cream Maker from Sage by Heston Blumenthal is the first ice cream maker that automatically senses the hardness of the mixture based on your selection, and keeps it ready until it’s time to serve. Perfect for lazy summer days. There are 12 hardness settings to choose from so you can choose from sorbet, frozen yogurt, gelato and ice cream. Either use the pre-set automatic programs, or set it to manual for ultimate control. A pre-cool function gives the ice cream a head start at minus 30°C so it’s at your preferred consistency as and when you want it. A generous 1L bowl allows you to make a big enough batch for friends and family. It can even play an ice cream van tune when it’s ready! A bowl, paddle and cleaning brush are included.

Gelato and ice cream – aren’t they just the same thing? Actually, no. It’s not just holiday magic that makes your Italian gelato seem so different to the ice cream you have at home. Usually containing less fat and with less air incorporated, gelato tends to be smoother and denser. With no need to pre-freeze the bowl, this versatile machine has two mixing paddles to create both gelato and ice cream consistencies to perfection and will also produce delicious frozen yoghurt or zingy sorbet. Fully automatic with your chosen treat being ready in as little as 30 minutes, extra ingredients can be added during churning and it features a 10-minute, keep-cool function after mixing. The paddles, lid and bowl are removable for easy cleaning. Recipe book incl.
