David, Lochwinnoch Enthusiastic amateur cook

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
An excellent piece of equipment, well built and good looking. This Ice Cream Maker is simple to use and the accompanying recipes make delicious, easy to make ice cream, sorbets and frozen yoghurts. You always know what goes in to your ice cream when it's home made. There is no need to store bowls in the freezer overnight because this machine freezes the mixture as it blends using it's own built in refrigeration unit.
Bad points:
The Ice Cream Maker is, in my opinion, excessively noisy. Leave it in the kitchen to do it's thing and go for a 45 minute walk, because you can't be in the same room while it blends. The instructions state that the equipment is not dish washer friendly so the mixing paddles, bowl and cover should be hand washed. Mine has been through my dishwasher with no ill effects though so no big deal.

PETER , LITTLEHAMPTON

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
i found it easy to follow instructions for making the ice cream i found it was much better to time 30 minutes as any longer the ice cream goes very solid. i have made vanila and mint choc ice cream both tasted very nice. and i did cut down on the sugar content which was ok.
Bad points:
My only concern was putting together the paddle and making sure it sat in the correct postition otherwise i found the machine stopped working and i had to try and rescure the mix apart from that and with practice all should be ok

Mike,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very simple to use - put your mixture of choice into the bucket, turn the dial and let it go. I use my kitchen timer to let me know when its about 10-15mins before the end to add fruit/choc chips/etc. Cleaning is easy enough too - not dishwasher safe, but only three bits to wash up, so it's no big deal. I've made my two favourites that I can't find any more - rum'n'raisin and tutti frutti, and, though I'm still experimenting a bit to find the best timing, I'm very pleased with the results.
Bad points:
It is noisy, but no more distracting than, say, having the washing machine running, if you're in another room. It is also pretty big, if you're short on storage space - I've only got a small kitchen, so had to rearrange my cupboards a bit to find it a home. It is on the heavy side, which wouldn't be so bad if the metal hand grips on each side weren't so sharp - I've fixed plastic 'edging strip' (available from Maplin or RS Components) to mine to make it a bit more friendly to handle. In all other respects, it does the job exactly as it says.
