From the manufacturer
Treat yourself to cold, creamy authentic Italian gelato with the De'Longhi GM6000 Gelato Maker. A mixing paddle incorporates all the ingredients in a stainless steel bowl with hermetic lid. Meanwhile, the built-in compressor with refrigerant immediately freezes ingredients. Much faster than traditional ice cream makers, this machine creates rich, flavorful gelato from fresh ingredients in less than 30 minutes. A color recipe booklet is included with 50 gelato and sorbet recipes. This durable gelato maker weighs 28 pounds and measures 12.8 by 9.6 by 16.7 inches (H x W x D).
Self-Refrigerating Compressor Freezes Gelato Immediately
Serve homemade gelato in less than 30 minutes. Unlike frozen bowl ice cream makers, this machine uses a self-refrigerating compressor to immediately bring the ingredients to below freezing temperatures.
Make Multiple Batches Quickly
Create multiple servings in different flavors for your friends and family. Without needing to refreeze an ice cream bowl between batches, you can prepare multiple batches continuously without the wait.
Creates an Ideal Gelato Consistency
Gelato is a dense mixture with lower fat than ice cream and no added air. These qualities produce a richer, more flavorful treat. The machine's mixing paddle effectively blends ingredients from top to bottom to create an ideal consistency.
Hermetic Lid Maintains Proper Temperature
A transparent, hermetic closure ensures an ideal gelato consistency. It helps maintain the ideal temperature inside the bowl and prevents air from entering and blending with the gelato.
Easy Cleanup and Dishwasher-Safe Parts
The durable stainless steel bowl, paddle, and lid are easily removable. And they're dishwasher safe for fast, convenient cleanup.
This unit uses R410A refrigerant gas, which operates more efficiently and does not contribute to ozone depletion.
Includes Recipe Book
Experiment with fresh ingredients and find your new favorite flavor with the included recipe booklet. This full-color guide contains 50 different gelato and sorbetto recipes to explore.

After reading all of the negative reviews about breaking the blade I was almost put off buying this machine, but I figured, what the heck, I'll buy a couple extra blades if they are that bad. I'm glad I bought it. I've had the machine for a year now and not one break. I never did get around to ordering the extra blades.
A tip; you run the mix in the machine to wipe air into the mix (also called overrun) and freeze it enough to trap the air. At this point it's soft-serve. You then move the mix to the freezer to do what they call "harden". This is the recommended procedure for all ice-cream and if you do it this way you won't be breaking things.
Myself I prefer soft-serve unless I'm making a root beer float.
However, I've mostly been making fruit sorbet. I do this on the cheap and easy by buying 100% fruit juice and pouring 2 cups into the machine and turning it in. There is usually enough sugar or other sweetener in the juice for the sorbet. Freeze for about 20 min and it's done. Perfect for these hot summer days we are having now.
Another tip: I found that Ceres Mango Nectar that I get at Costco makes a wonderful frozen concoction. Again 2 cups in the bowl for 20 min. It's smooth and silky, I think the mango pulp keeps the ice crystals under control.
Another thing I like about this machine is it's ready when you are. No running to get ice. No pre-freezing.
It's also easy to clean up. The dasher/scraper and bowl easily come out. I always hand wash mine as I don't think the plastic parts would fare well in a dishwasher. If ice has formed between the bowl and freezing plate a little rocking of the bowel frees it. There is a 3/8" grove around the top of the bowel opening where the lid locks on. If you aren't careful things can get in there, especially if you fill the bowel while it's in the machine like I do. But I try to to be vary careful and haven't had too many accidents. If there is a problem the grove is wide enough to wedge in a folded paper towel corner and run it around with a table knife. After getting most of whatever out that way a final cleanup with a q-tip finishes it up.
Happy freezing, enjoy.
UPDATE 2016: yes, 2016. Still waiting to hear from Delonghi. Actually we just finally gave up. Mine is sitting on a shelf in my basement, I guess I will donate it. OR perhaps, buy one of the broken ones of Ebay for the parts---seems to be an endless supply. Although this machine gets 4 stars on Amazon, a full 31% have issues with it. That should send a loud and clear message to both consumer and manufacturer: Junk. Buy the Cuisinart for $60--I bought my daughter one a few years back and she makes ice cream every week and has had zero issues. I can't tell the difference in the quality of the ice cream between hers and this problem ridden behemoth.
