This Whynter ice-cream maker is a must have for everyone who is serious and passionate about their home made ice-cream! First, there is the elegant stainless steel design that will compliment any kitchen. Seriously, it is a nice appliance to look at, not as bulky or large as some of the other self-containing ice-cream makers we had a chance to test out. This also makes it easy to storage. While it can be left out on the kitchen counter top if you have to room to spare, it will also easily fit inside any regular kitchen cabinet.
This machine will make precisely two liters of ice-cream in about 30 minutes. Running it for 30 minutes will give you a nice, slightly soft ice-cream consistency, but if you run it longer you will get a thicker, firmer ice-cream. The best part is that after you make one batch the machine is ready for another immediately, as no pre-freezing is required!
This is a compressor ice-cream machine, meaning that the operation is completely hassle free as it chills at the same time it churns! There is no need to pre-freeze the bowl or add ice or salt. The other casing is made from stainless steel, making it both durable and attractive. The inside bowl has a nice convenient handle that allows you to easily take it out and scoop out the ice-cream once the process is done. After that you can add another round of ice-cream mixture and make some more!
Both the bowl and the paddles are removable, making the cleanup process very easy. The LCD display allows you to set the end time of the churning process. When it is done you will hear a convenient little beep notifying you that it is time to take your ice-cream out. If the mixture becomes too thick the motor will disengage, preserving the life of the appliance and the consistency of your ice-cream!
While this machine is a bit pricier than your regular ice-cream machine on the market, we believe it is well-worth that price tag! Consider Whynter ICM-200LS Stainless Steel Ice Cream Maker, 2.1-Quart a lifelong investment that will enable you to make your favorite desert whenever you want, and have it come out tasty, delicious and texture-rich!
