With the Musso Lussino frozen dessert maker, you can have delicious fresh desserts in minutes. These desserts not only include rich ice cream, but silky sorbets, Italian gelato, frozen yogurts, and refreshing frozen drinks.
Fully automatic and precisely controlled by a timer, this machine takes the trouble and guesswork out of making ice cream, sorbet, frozen yogurt, gelato, and frozen drinks at home. Ingredients go into the bowl, the timer is set, two buttons are pressed and about 30 minutes later 1-1/2 quarts of a frozen confection are ready for consumption. Because the machine doesn't require its bowl to be frozen for hours in a refrigerator's freezer (like less expensive machines that only churn), it can immediately begin making another batch. If a batch becomes too hard the machine shuts off automatically. Not only does it work professionally it looks the part, as the housing, bowl, and paddle are made of stainless steel for sanitation and easy cleaning. The 100-watt machine measures 12 inches wide, 11 inches high, and 18 inches deep, and it weighs 38 pounds. Made it Italy, it carries a one-year warranty against defects. An instruction booklet with many recipes is included. --Fred Brack

The built in bowl is a professional decision. I was looking at the Breville unit with the removable bowl but went with the Lello due to not only the solid build quality inside and out (not made in China) but how quickly it freezes your recipe. Having a built in bowl allows the unit to chill faster which is extremely important when making these types of desserts. The longer it takes to chill the more ice crystals are allowed to develop which result in a grainy textured ice cream. I love Breville products however I went with the Lello because I also feel that all of the bells and whistles and pretty lights of the Breville were nothing more than gimmicks. You will still end up running it in manual mode like the Lello for best results.
Pros - Quiet, effective, well designed and built, easy to use, will make 1.5qt in 13-15min.
Cons - Only the price but this is a moot point. If you're like me and will pay extra for a well built product that will last years and years then the price won't bother you.
The only complaint I've seen on here was in regards to cleaning. I found this to be greatly over exaggerated. A warm sponge in the built in bowl will quickly defrost any I've cream residue. After than a series of sponge or paper towel wipes will finish it off. Total clean time is about 3min. If you cannot clean this unit in under 5min then you're doing it wrong.
Since there is only a one year warranty there's not much I can do. Other people report having it last much longer so if you want to take the risk I can tell you it does make wonderful ice cream and sorbet but I'm not inclined to risk replacing it at this price.
Our favorite ice cream recipe for one batch is 3 cups of organic half n half, 1 cup minus 2 T of organic cane suger, 1 tablespoon of organic vanilla. Mix for 30 minutes in your Lello.
I have owned several less expensive ice cream makers over the years and never found one I liked until now. This Italian ice cream is well worth the money. My husband was skeptical about the cost until he tried the ice cream. Now he is sold on the idea that this is a worthwhile use of our money.
The Lello is a compressor style ice cream maker, meaning no more pre-freezing canisters and no more waiting for the unmade ice cream to get cold enough to churn. It also means, you can let it run until you get the desired consistency since the ice cream gets colder the longer you allow the ice cream maker to run giving you the flexibility of making anything from soft serve style to a concrete-hard chunk of ice cream.
How good is it? I've taken dark chocolate sorbet and dark chocolate ice cream to parties and the result both times were a combination of happy groans and people saying: "this is the best ice cream I've ever had!" - yes, it's that good.
Throughout the summer, I've used the Lello almost every day and the results have been fantastic.
The build quality is also excellent. The Lello looks like it should be in a commercial kitchen. It's metal dasher and gleaming stainless-steel finish give me confidence that it will last for years.
Gripes? It's noisy. I use it in second kitchen in a finished basement and I can hear it on the first floor of the house. My wife often asks "what's that noise?" It's pretty bad. I've considered making a sound-deadening box to go around it, but it would be tricky since you need ventilation for the compressor. Until then, I just deal with the noise.
I also wish it had a removable container for easier washing. As it is, I have to take a bowl of warm water and a sponge and spend 10 minutes carefully hand cleaning and drying it after each use. It does clean up easily, but it would be much easier if I could remove the container.
Overall though, I am super-happy I purchased the Lello. My family is a little fatter and a lot happier this summer!
