Anyway I pre-made my recipe and had it waiting nice and cold in the fridge to pour into the machine as soon as it arrived. lol Placed a small amount of rum on the inner bowl so the 2 do not stick together. This is in the instructions. I turned the machine on thinking it would take a good 35 minutes and within 13 minutes it was done. Probably because MY recipe had very little watery fluids. The recipe book included called for more milk then I used.
I would like to share the recipe I created by pouring over multitudes of low carb (healthy brain diet) ice cream
recipes on the net. BTW Gelato is so much better then 50% air in ice cream. It is still ice cream just without all the fluff and Im not big on fluff and air.
Denises fabulous Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (gelato)
all ingredients preferable organic :)
2 1/2 C heavy whipping cream
1/4 C whole milk
3 Tbs. xylitol (a sweet-tasting crystalline alcohol derived from xylose, present in some plant tissues)
1/2 vanilla bean ground
11/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
pinch himalayan sea salt
1 Tbs Natural Vegetable Glycerin (Glycerin highly “hygroscopic” which means that it absorbs water, Keeping ice cream from getting rock hard and preventing ice crystals) It does not affect your blood sugar and is safe as a sweetener or for our purposes creamy scoop-able ice cream.
Put all ingredients in a quart jar, shake and refrigerate till cool, pour into maker.
This machine is worth every penny. :)
The Cuisinart ICE-50BC Supreme Ice Cream Maker
The Whynter IC-2L SNO 2-Quart Ice Cream Maker (OEM for the Lello 4090 Gelato Pro Quart Ice Cream Maker)
The DeLonghi GM6000
All three models are in the $200-$300 price range and received top marks from the various review sites. I am sure that one cannot go wrong buying any of these machines. For my personal choice however, I eliminated the Cuisinart machine pretty quickly off my list due to the potential design problems of the mixer motor arm assembly mentioned in the reviews. Several reviewers commented on the weak mixer motor and/or mixing arm assembly. The problems might or might not be real. But I just didn't want to risk it.
I looked long and hard at the Whynter/Lello machine. Seems like a really good choice. It makes a somewhat larger ice cream batch than the other two machines (2 qts. versus 1.5 quarts). I almost bought it. However, the non-removable mixing bowl was a deal breaker for me. I prefer to be able to remove the bowl and wash it in the sink when done making ice cream. I've had kitchen appliances in the past where this was an issue, and I can do a more thorough cleaning job when the bowl is removable to be cleaned outside of the machine.
That left me with my personal first choice: this DeLonghi model. The reviewers also complained about its mixing paddle tending to break easily. There were also comments about the small batch of ice cream that this machine makes. Finally, there were questions about whether this machine could make good airy ice cream due to its sealed lid design. But the mixing paddle is a really cheap replacement part (~$3 on the Internet). The smaller batches is not a really bad issue for self-freezing units such as this one, since I could just make batch after batch. Despite the airtight lid, some reviewers commented that this machine could still make good ice cream too. So I bought the DeLonghi.
We've made about six batches of ice cream so far on the DeLonghi, and it has worked out great. Every batch starting from the first was quite delicious, and this machine meets all of our needs for frozen desserts. The ice cream does tend to be denser and not so airy. But it is quite creamy and has a good texture like you would get from many premium ice cream brands in the store. Plus you can't beat the fresh and wholesome ingredients we use at home. Our family now prefer homemade ice cream over store-bought. Because the ice cream is so delicious, the smaller batch size is more obviously painful as they go quickly! On the other hand, we feel it's better to have less high-quality stuff than a lot of no-good stuff anyway.
The mixing paddle feels quite robust and turns out to be not a problem. Cleaning up was a piece of cake since the bowl, paddle, and lid are all removable and cleaned in the sink. We are careful not to leave the machine churning ice cream too long in case the mixture freezes over and break the paddle. We found the batches to be ready in under 20 minutes, as soon as the mixture firms up and starts to get pushed upward by the paddle. It then requires some additional time in the freezer to firm up some. If DeLonghi finds a way to make this machine to take in more air for a fluffier ice cream, I'll give it a full five stars.
The free shipping from Amazon was fast and awesome!
