There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was able to find the complete manual online with recipes. I also read pretty much only bad reviews for the machine so I decided to do a test run.
I made chocolate ice cream side by side in the Bella, and with my friend's tried and true Cuisinart model. I made one cooked base, as simple as possible. I went for cooked since this will always yield better (ie. thicker) results than non-cook recipes. I've read a lot of complaints about the time it takes to make a cooked base, but honestly I threw it together while I made breakfast. Just cream, egg yolk, sugar, salt, cocoa.
I gave both freezer bowls about 30 hours each in the freezer together. I saw reviews that said the Bella didn't freeze all the way, but both bowls froze completely solid.
I also followed best-practice guidelines, which I wonder if other uses didn't know/use. I cooked my base to the point where it coated the back of a spoon. This reduction is how ice cream base is always made in high-end restaurants. I cooled in the fridge, and stuck in the freezer a few minutes before I wanted to spin the ice cream. I could see my base was nice and thick when I took it from the fridge.
I spun the base in both machines at the same time. The Cuisinart and Bella were both about as loud. The Cuisinart reached its peak thickness quicker than expected - maybe 12 minutes while the Bella took about 15. I'd say the Cuisinart was just a tick thicker in texture than the Bella, but both were the texture you'd be looking for - a thick soft-serve. It's no secret you have to freeze in a container another 2 hours with any home machine to receive a harder texture. Both bowls left a fairly frozen layer around the edges that I scraped with a spatula and just ate...yum.
I'd give the Cuisinart a 4.5 star rating. I liked everything about it, except that the plastic lid/paddle was difficult to get into place and to remove at the end. But the texture was perfect and everything stayed cold, and spun very quickly. It was also very easy to tell when the ice cream was done.
The Bella I gave only a 4. The texture was a touch softer than the Cuisinart, but this was not enough of a difference to be an issue. It was a bit tougher to tell when to remove the ice cream because the design of the Bella is to spin the paddle (whereas the Cuisinart spins the bowl, paddle stays motionless). The moving paddle on the Bella also changed directions of spin when it met enough resistance. I stuck my spoon in for a taste test and when the paddle hit the spoon it started to rotate the opposite direction. Later, when the ice cream had become quite thick, the paddle started changing directions repeatedly because it couldn't stand up to the thickness anymore. I let the machine keep spinning in this fashion for awhile for sake of the test, but I'm assuming this would be your sign to remove the ice cream.
I'm guessing most of these bad reviews came from people who were pretty unfamiliar with ice cream bases and techniques, and I think they'd get better results by following some of these best practices and reading up on home machines in general. I'll be keeping my $10 steal of a machine for future use.
