The BCI600XL Smart Scoop is Breville's easy to use ice cream maker with automatic hardness settings. It's the first ice cream maker that automatically senses the hardness of the mixture based on your selection and keeps it ready until it's time to serve. The Breville BCI600XL Smart Scoop is made of BPA free materials, features a child lock, and when your dessert is ready will sound an alert beep or one of three musical tunes.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The machine arrived on schedule and I was excited to try it. I read through the entire manual and followed the recipes included in the recipe book line by line. The machine, however, stopped churning the ice cream after about 20min after having accumulated a thick layer of solid frozen ice cream on the sides of the bowl. I tried 5 different whole milk recipes, including ice creams, gelatos and frozen yoghurt with the same end result.
After examining the other reviews, it seems the compressor in this machine is incredibly delicate. One wrong bump during shipping or leaving the machine on its side and the ice cream maker will no longer function properly. There are plenty of satisfied customer reviews out there though, and it seems to me buying this product is just a bit of gamble.
Had it worked as intended, I'm sure this would have been one of my best purchases, as most of my Breville purchases usually are. Unfortunately I had to return the product. I did not get a replacement seeing as I move around a lot and I did not want the headache of transporting such a delicate appliance.
There were some negative reviews, which is always scary. In this case I think the negative reviews must have been due to some receiving a defective machine, some ulterior motive, not reading the directions, or not really understanding what this kind of machine can do. It does take 40 minutes or so and the dessert is not frozen solid - if it was the paddle wouldn't be able to turn. The directions are clear that if you want a dessert that is frozen hard, you need to put it in the freezer for a couple of hours.
Two bits of advice. Don't over fill the bowl. The directions say 3-1/2 cups max and the mean it. This amount of either sorbet or gelato will fill the 1-1/2 quart bowl when it is done. If you add more it will overflow and it will be hard to clean up. Second, do all your preparation the day before and put it in the fridge over night. I usually make a couple of kinds, put the mix in the fridge and then make more than one batch the next day.
Like all ice cream makers, the ability to know what you put into your ice cream is a huge draw. Possibly more important is what you *don't* put into your ice cream. Purchasing ice cream from the store is infinitely easier than making your own from scratch, but then so is ordering pizza and fast food over cooking your own, and most of us are aware that doing so comes at it's own cost. If you want to make your own ice cream that is healthier, usually tastes better, and can be made to whatever ice cream cravings you happen to be having at the moment, then you want your own ice cream maker.
As to this ice cream maker specifically:
Since you're looking at this review, you probably already know that you want *an* ice cream maker, you want to know if this particular ice cream maker is worth it's fairly hefty price tag. Breville's Ice Cream maker tries to make the process of creating your own ice cream as easy as possible by giving you everything you would want in an ice cream maker, all in a convenient and sleek looking package that you would be proud to keep out on your countertop for all to see (and to encourage you to use more often).
First off, the biggest difference between ice cream makers is if it comes with it's own refrigeration unit, or it you have to do things like put the bowl in the freezer first or surround it with a ton of ice cubes. This isn't nothing, especially if freezer space is already near maximum like mine often is. This really is an all-in-one. Get your ingredients together, dump them in the machine, set your desired softness, and let it do its thing until it plays the chime/melody you have it set to play, letting you know that your ice cream is ready. And yes, it comes set with whatever Ice Cream Truck jingle you may have grown up with. It can keep the ice cream cold on it's own, and stir it up as necessary to keep your ice cream at the softness level you have it set. Even the always dreaded cleanup is made simple with a base that just pulls out of the machine, and all with easily washable parts.
Is it pricy? Yeah, it assuredly isn't going to win any votes from the super-budget minded. Is it a great ice cream machine? Yes, it really is. It does everything you could want it to do, it's very aesthetically pleasing, and you can tell it is very well built. This is not something I can see breaking down on me, something that you always risk when choosing a budget appliance. Is it worth it? That really comes down to how much you'll use it. I have a vegan ice cream book I bought (N'ice Cream: 80+ Recipes for Healthy Homemade Vegan Ice Creams) specifically so I would have all the recipes I'd ever want, to make sure I made use of this purchase. I recommend the book also, even if you're not vegan, as there are some great recipes for inspiration if nothing else.
