Homemade ice cream is a great way to boost your
5-a-day intake when made with fresh fruit
It's fun . . . especially for kids who are
usually only too eager to come up with
suggestions for new flavours
To ensure you make full use of these
handy appliances, below are some things
that you should consider before making a purchase.
Size/Capacity of the Ice Cream Maker
Although many ice cream makers have a 0.7 litre capacity, there are some which can make
over double this amount. Careful consideration should there be given to choosing a size
which meets your needs.
Pre-Freezing Bowl or Built-in Freezer?
Most reasonably priced ice cream makers have a removable
bowl which you have to pre-freeze before it can be used. Make sure you check the product
information as to how long the bowl must be frozen for and if you feel
you'd rather not have to pre-plan making ice cream in advance, you
should opt for a model which has a built-in freezer.
cream makers can freeze-churn ice cream mixture within 20 to 30 minutes however
you should carefully check the product
description for the estimated timescale.
