hunting for ice cream maker machine

the summer fever is in town ^_^

I have been reading all those yummy recipes of ice cream and sorbet by different bloggers that just made me wanna prepare my own home made ice cream this summer! doesn’t that sound like a FUN idea n_n

But in order to do so, you need an ice cream maker machine! and before i start the hunt for the perfect machine, i had to understand the mechanism of this unique invention in order to make the right choice when it comes to purchasing the “ONE” ❤

So with a quick search here are the main findings i came out with:

1. the criteria to consider in the machine:

a. amount of ice cream you intend to prepare? large quantities or simple portions.

b. multiple flavor at a time means you would need a model with dual bowl option.

c. options for making more than just ice cream.

d. according to the above you will find machines with different price range.

2. there are two main types of machines:

a. rock salt and crank: which is the old fashion way of making ice cream, it is the most basic with manual use.

b. countertop ice cream maker, which is also two types:

b.1. frozen bowl: you simply freeze the bowl first (which consumes time) then operate electronically or manually.

b.2. compressor: (for professionals) compressor automatically freezes ice cream, and can prepare multiple batches at once.

from the above i think i would focus the hunt on the “frozen bowl” method machine, i find it most practical and convenient for domestic use.

if you already have an ice cream maker machine, share your experience and send us some advice on what to purchase 🙂

In return i have collected the wonderful recipes below for everyone to enjoy ^_^
