Product Description

Product Description

With the Musso Lussino frozen dessert maker, you can have delicious fresh desserts in minutes. These desserts not only include rich ice cream, but silky sorbets, Italian gelato, frozen yogurts, and refreshing frozen drinks.

Amazon.com

Fully automatic and precisely controlled by a timer, this machine takes the trouble and guesswork out of making ice cream, sorbet, frozen yogurt, gelato, and frozen drinks at home. Ingredients go into the bowl, the timer is set, two buttons are pressed and about 30 minutes later 1-1/2 quarts of a frozen confection are ready for consumption. Because the machine doesn't require its bowl to be frozen for hours in a refrigerator's freezer (like less expensive machines that only churn), it can immediately begin making another batch. If a batch becomes too hard the machine shuts off automatically. Not only does it work professionally it looks the part, as the housing, bowl, and paddle are made of stainless steel for sanitation and easy cleaning. The 100-watt machine measures 12 inches wide, 11 inches high, and 18 inches deep, and it weighs 38 pounds. Made it Italy, it carries a one-year warranty against defects. An instruction booklet with many recipes is included. --Fred Brack

I love this frozen dessert maker. I have used it at least once every night since it arrived 2 weeks ago. It's so simple to make a delicious frozen dessert with this machine, just mix up your ingredients (or you can just turn on the "churn" switch and have this machine mix it) and pour it in. 30-40 minutes later your dessert will be frozen to perfection.

The machine has a 60 minute timer which acts as a master on/off and two buttons, one to "churn" (mix) and the other to "chill". I often start it just before we begin our meal so we'll have a freshly made dessert when we're done.

This machine does an excellent job of making frozen desserts. We've made perfect fresh lime, cantaloupe and blueberry sorbets as well as delicious smooth and creamy ice creams like Mocha, Chocolate and Honeydew Melon. Because this machine is so easy to use, it allows you to be creative, often, and without the fuss of ice, salt or prefrozen bowls.

The 1-1/2 quart capacity is perfect for an average family, with some to spare, though for big parties you'd have to make more then one batch. Of course multiple batches are no problem with this machine and we've done 3-4 batches in a row more then a few times. Unfortunately since the bowl is not removable (the blades and cover are) you'll have to clean it out with a sponge and warm/soapy water between batches of different flavors.

You will need to have a permanent space for it since it is heavy and not the type of appliance you'd want to move in and out of a cabinet. This machine is really beautiful too with its stainless steel body/blade and eye appealing curves, it occupies a prominent spot in our home and has been a conversation piece. I consider it a practical "luxury" appliance.

Since you're reading this, you're probably wondering if it's worth the extra money compared to a lot of the other home machines on the market. I've had mine for five and a half years now, and I can tell you that this is the King, the Cadillac, the Ultimate home ice cream machine. It's absolutely worth the extra money, and I'd recommend it to anyone that's serious about their ice cream.

You probably already know that this model has a built-in freezer, so you don't have to pre-freeze a bowl for 24 hours or so before making a batch of ice cream. It'll happily make back-to-back batches if you want, and the extra freezing power makes incredibly smooth ice cream. Every batch I've made has been on par with Ben & Jerry's, my favorite ice cream up until buying this machine.

Unlike most other machines, everything is made of metal, including the dasher, so it feels extremely durable.

It also has a large see-through plastic cover that you can lift off to have full access to the ingredients moving inside, which makes adding things like nuts, candy, chocolate pieces, etc. very easy, instead of having to funnel them down a tiny chute and not really being able to see how the freezing is progressing. One of the fun things about this machine is being able to stand over it and watch as the liquid starts transforming into ice cream.

If you've read other reviews, you've probably heard people complain about a few things, so let me ease your mind:

Weight - it's 44 pounds, which I have no problem lifting up onto the counter.

Cleanup - because of the way it freezes, it uses a non-removable stainless steel bowl. Use a sponge with warm water, and you'll have it cleaned out in less than two minutes.

I spent two years, and graduated from culinary school on a whim (let's not go into that).
I had an opportunity to use quite a few machines in pastry class. This is one of the better ones. It's at the edge of being a pro tool, but it's capacity is too small to qualify for that, and the freezer unit is slow for a pro unit, (which will encourage ice crystal formation).
On the other hand, it's a capable machine, and a huge step up from cheaper machines in terms of build and performance. It's quiet, strong, and so far, very reliable.
If you are simply experimenting with ice cream making, this isn't the machine, probably (because of the price).
If you do like ice cream enough to plunk down half a grand, it's the best one I've used under [$$$$]. For [$$$$] you'll double the capacity and freeze cream in about 8 or 10 minutes.
It's not too hard to clean, and is easy on power consumption (sometimes we take the machine on picnics and use a generator to power the unit). I'm satisfied with the performance, quality and product produced to say I fully recommend it to ice cream loving families who know how truly great fresh ice cream is.

This is a wonderful machine. From design to performance, it cannot be beat.
But a new user needs to understand more than the very simple instructions would advise. After about six batches, you'll get used to what works for you:
1. While the book says to set the timer to 30 minutes, I have found that 40 minutes works best. At 30 minutes, with various recipes, they have all still been at soup stage.
2. The book advises that you turn the chiller off 2 minutes before ending the cycle. I would suggest doing so 3 to 4 minutes before (At about 37 minutes for my timing.) This way, it is easier to remove all of the ice cream, without having a cold "crust" which wants to adhere to the bottom / side of the mixer.
3. Cleaning is simple. I don't understand why so many other reviewers have complained about this. (Perhaps its the dishwasher appliance culture we have all adopted.) Take out the blade, and you can clean this thing in about one minute.
4. As another reviewer has noted, the indicators on the timer dial are deceptive. In fact, if you want 30 minutes, you must turn to the solid line following the number and the small arrowhead after the 30. In fact, I just set the timer well past 40, then manage the timing myself, both by a clock and by look and texture. You need to be careful, because the manual warns you that if the chiller is turned off, you must wait several minutes before turning it on again. Therefore, if you set the timer at too low a setting, this could be problematic if you still have "soup".
5. You MUST undertake an aerobic exercise program at least four mornings per week before you use this machine. Otherwise, buy lots of sansabelt pants, because you will increase your intake of ice cream once you acquire this device.
In summary, it's a fine appliance, and from only a utilitarian perspective, it is overpriced. But if you add in the design factor, it is well worth the money.
