BCI600XL Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker
If you’re an ice cream lover, treat yourself to this high-tech, super adjustable machine from an industry-leading brand.
This high-performance appliance includes 12 settings for a custom consistency. It’s also great for parties since you can keep ice cream cold inside the machine for up to 3 hours.
You’ll have to dish out a pretty penny for this ice cream maker. It’s also large and doesn’t have handles, so it’s difficult to store and awkward to pick up and move.
Traditional Fir Wood Ice Cream Maker
Patience is key for this traditional-looking ice cream maker, but you and your family will enjoy ice cream for several days after just one use.
Kids will love the classic look and hand crank that resembles an old-fashioned ice cream maker.
This ice cream machine is much slower than others on list (a few hours), but it makes the most ice cream per batch.
Frozen Healthy Dessert Maker
If you’re looking for a healthy dessert alternative, you’ll love the fruity soft-serve this machine can whip up in 15 minutes or less.
It’s perfect for those who are lactose-intolerant or health-conscious. It’s also the fastest machine on this list for nearly instant gratification.
Although lightweight and fast, this machine is tall and quite loud. Since it uses frozen fruit, you won’t achieve a creamy ice cream flavor.
Automatic Stainless Steel Ice Cream Maker
The consistency may not be as smooth as the Breville, but the Gourmia is a great user experience. It’s easy to use, clean, and store.
This compact appliance is easy to store in small cabinets and full pantries. It only takes 20-30 minutes to make ice cream, and customers love how simple it is to breakdown and clean.
We read a few reviews that mentioned ice crystals and problems with properly closing the lid.
ICE-30R Pure Indulgence Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker
Despite a longer process, the Cuisinart ice cream maker’s results are comparable to the high-end Breville model at a much lower price.
Cuisinart is a trusted name brand in home appliances so you can count on a quality product and good customer service if something goes wrong.
Some pre-planning is necessary. You have to put the drum in the freezer overnight before you intend to use this ice cream maker.
