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.
Top customer reviews
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.
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.
The paddles inside have too big of a gap to the container, which causes way too much ice to form on the walls.
The supplied scooper is useless, the handle is too short and you get ice cream all over your fist!
The programs are a bit off, you usually need to chose 'the next up' to get the desired consistency
Other than that... this thing (using the proper ingredients and recipes) makes INCREDIBLE ice cream, gelato and sorbet.
