Ice Cream Maker Buyer's Guide

Feb 23, 2008
A lot of people like ice cream. Almost any one, of all ages, from a five year old toddler to a 75 year old grandma enjoy this desert's cold, soft and rich flavor which just melts in the mouth as soon as the tongue touches it. And on a hot and sunny summer day, you will likely go scrambling to the nearest sundae shop to get yourself a cone to cool and refresh yourself.

With rising prices and inflation, it is not surprising that this tasty desert can be quite expensive for a number of people. Getting a scoop or two a day may might very well burn a hole in your wallet. That is why there are a lot of people who have opted to get themselves their very own ice cream maker at home. Another reason may be there is a specific flavor that you have in mind that the stores and makers have not yet thought of. Maybe it is time you fulfill that fantasy and make your very own tasty concoction. Or perhaps, you simply want to have a maker handy so that you can make your favorite dessert right then and there in the comforts of your home. This affords you the luxury of eating your sweet delight in minutes without having to go and travel to the shop and getting yourself basked in the heat of the midday sun.

Choosing an ice cream maker however is not easy as reading your ABC's. There are a lot of factors that you should consider. Like any investment, to get the most out of your money's worth, you must make sure that you are getting a great deal of value with your purchase. Here are a few tips that can guide you in making that ice cream maker decision purchase.

In planning to make ice cream, you should have a quantity in mind. How much would you want to make in one setting? Most ice cream maker models can produce around 0.7 liter per set while there are some which allow more than 1.1 liters. You might want to choose the latter if you have a big household especially with lots of ice cream craving kids.

If you are looking for convenience in an ice cream maker then you should opt for one with a built in freezer. This way you can make cold and cream deserts any time and on any day. However, these types of makers are more expensive than their pre-freezing bowl counterparts. The latter variety may come at a cheaper price but there is more waiting time involved. Pre-freeze models means that you have to make advance planning in making your ice cream because the bowl has to spend an ample amount of time in your freezer before you can start. If you should choose to purchase this type of maker, you need to consider if the bowl would fit your freezer and if the freezer has enough space to accommodate such a bowl.
