Ice Cream Makers - which one ??

Thinking about buying one of these, not may I add one of the ones costing hundreds of £'s, but around £50 - £60.

Anyone any thoughts? I know Biggs has one and uses it a lot, which type do you have Biggs ??

Any info ref this would be wonderful, thanks in advance.

Yummy I had a Moulinex, which worked very well for years. It cost around £50. It was one of those you've got to freeze the bowl and then the motor part fits and churns on top. It took about 20 minutes to make the ice cream and the texture is certainly much, much better than hand-beaten ones. It didn't like ice-creams with bits in very much, as it would stop beating too early, and worked better with smooth mixtures.

I think it's Dolores you need. Remember looking up on "Which " for her re. best models. Sure she will get back to you as can't remember offhand which one it was !

Don't own one myself as quite happy to make the old fashioned way.

Do recall the price was over my budget though - how hard is it to stir after all !!

Ice cream makers

Hi Yummy, sorry I'm late. We bought a Magimix Le Glacier 1.5 with the spare JL vouchers left over when we married. I changed the plug to a French one and T has been using it a lot this year; first time. A great way of using eggs and fruits from the garden :0)
(just in case you need to try some gentle persuasion).

As I'm still affected by my RSI type injury to my right wrist I can only say the machine is invaluable; T loves using it and we keep the base in the freezer ready to make the next lot of ice cream.

I'm not really an ice cream fan but this is soooo delicious :0)

Thanks all for your invaluable input, as always. Biggs I too have a problem with my shoulder which makes the " beat your own"
method inpracticable (sp) So the machine churnable would be the best best for me I think.
I have looked at the Magimix and it was was my first choice.... especially with the soldes at the moment !!!!
In fact I am borrowing a friend from tomorrow to see if I REALLY NEED on eof thee and am not just hankd=ering after another piece of kitchen ephemera !!!
Time will tell..... will keep you posted !!

Yummy this should take you to the machine we have, we only got a few recipes in a book which came with the machine I assume at 9.99 it will be a proper book of recipes.

In the freezer we have:
Vanilla
Strawberry
lemon (my favourite)
cherry and redcurrant
blackcurrant

We have only had to buy the cream and the lemons :0)

Ice Cream Makers - which one ??

Thanks for that link Biggs, that was one I had looked at in Boulanger, may go back tomorrow and have another look. I looked at Amazon.co.uk but by the time P&P has been added I might as well go and buy one I think.
Amazon.fr don't do the Magimix brand.
I googled the Ice cream recipes and came up with loads but I will send you the link by email of a very good one I found.

Thanks all

Ice Cream Makers

I have been looking into this recently as I also want to get an ice cream maker. In the end I think I'm going to go with the Kenwood ice cream attachment for the Chef. You freeze the steel inner bowl and also get a white Chef bowl as part of the set, which is great value (60 Euro) as you then have a second Chef bowl which is always useful.

The other machine which gets rave reviews (on Amazon and Lakeland) is the Philips Delizia because you only have to freeze a disc (7" x 1") which is very handy as I am always tight for space in the freezer. Having said that, I have friends who have Le Glacier and say it is great.

Good luck with your choice.

Yummy - Ice cream makers...

Yummy, OH bought me the Magimix Gelato Chef 2200 but about £300.00 but it is fantastic and no need to put the bucket in the freezer, the machine prepares it ready for making the ice-cream.x

Lucky you Dolores !!!!

That is quite out of my price range, but it looks and sounds great.

My friend has lent me the Philips Delizia to try out, but it isn't the one with the freezable paddle it's the one with the freezable bowl which is in the freezer now, should be ready about tea-time, how's that for timing !!
Looking at the Magimix 1.5ltr to buy.

Off to get the full cream milk and the cream this afternoon. Just made some burnt sugar to break up and incorporate in a simple Vanilla to start off with....getting quite excited now. :0)

Yummy....

Here is a very easy vanilla gelato recipe from my book....

150g sugar
250ml milk
150ml cream
4 egg yolks

Whisk egg yolks and sugar together till they are light and frothy. Add the milk and cream, mix well and pour the mixture into the ice cream maker.

I use semi-skimmed milk and double cream and I also add &"189; tsp vanilla extract but this is optional.

My ice-cream maker stops when the ice-cream is done. The paddle goes in the opposite direction which is good but it usually takes about 35 - 40 mins.

Enjoy your ice-cream!! x

Ice Cream Makers - which one

I can recommend the Phillips Delizia from Lakeland. Turned out lovely strawberry ice cream for me without to much fuss or washing up.
