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

My background - I make about 200 pints of 'artisanal' ice cream/gelato a year ... so, the kind of ice cream you get in high end ice cream shops for $9-10 a pint. I've owned a Cusinart canister style, DeLonghi GM6000 (for 4 yrs.), tried the Cuisinart ICE-100 1 time (and then returned it) and tried an in-store sample of the ice cream produced by the Breville.
If you are looking to make ice cream there are 3 important factors:
1. Quality of the ice cream and/or gelato. Gelato btw, may include some different ingredients, such as cornstarch, but always has lower fat content and less air whipped into it. Most high end ice cream is more like gelato in being denser. The major factors in creating better ice cream are fast freezing to create smaller ice crystals, and, of course, excellent ingredients.
2. Reliability and service - Many home ice cream makers seem to have a 4 to 5 year life span. The more expensive the machine, the more important the warranty and available service.
3. Ease of use - Making ice cream is a little more time consuming to make than many people realize; maybe 15 minutes for Philadelphia style, and more for custard style recipes. In general, making good ice cream always requires more than just dumping in the ingredients. Beyond that, machines do vary in ease of operation and clean up, but they all seem pretty equivalent overall.
Bonus factors - heaviness/portability, appearance, noise etc. are issues that may matter depending on your circumstances
My review of the machines:
Cusinart canister style - requires that you freeze the canister ahead of time in your freezer. If you make ice cream very intermittently, and are not fussy about the quality of the ice cream, this is much more economical. The canisters do, however , have a high fail rate (we returned 1 out of 3) and are producing ice cream at the thin upper edge of the device's capabilities; anything challenging, such as alcohol content, etc. causes problems ( soupy ice cream, failure to harden). Even with less problematic recipes, it produced a very good ice cream about 1 out of 4 times.
Canister vs compressor - With the caveat that I've never tried using a rock salt machine, my firm opinion is that you cannot make top quality ice cream without a compressor style machine; a canister style one just can't do it. Actually, to be totally accurate - you also can't duplicate the quality/fast freezing capabilities of top end commercial machines with any home machine under $1,000. That said, home compressor style machines should be able to produce really excellent ice cream.
Breville - we have only tried an in-store sample of ice cream produced in the Breville; it was slumping and icy. Reviewers are right in saying that all ice cream comes out soft serve - but poor ice cream has inconsistent texture and larger ice crystals; those problems do not correct themselves during the hardening (further chilling in the freezer) stage. YMMV, since we don't know whether the ice cream was well prepared. Service/reliability - 1 yr. warranty isn't impressive in a $400 machine. At the point we looked at all the reviews on Amazon, the Breville seemed to have more mechanical failures than the Cuisinart. On the plus side - Breville actually has a lot of service centers in our area. (San Francisco Bay area)
Cuisinart - got it, all excited - tried it once - returned it. The ice cream (using the gelato paddle) was icy and slumping. We are now, sadly, used to much better ice cream. YMMV - one review said their first batch was a failure and the next batch was awesome. Even though we waited the requisite 24 hours for the coolant to settle, it's possible a 2nd batch would have been better. We were just too depressed to keep trying... Service and reliability - longest warranty at 3 yrs., and see Breville comment above.
Ease of use - a bit 'fiddly' compared to the DeLonghi, and the paddle is a bit hard to clean.
DeLonghi GM 6000 - great value for the money. I have been producing excellent ice cream for 4 years, and have made approximately 800 pints in that time. It's consistent in quality, and easy to use. The paddle is not very sturdy ( replacement costs about $15). Service - there's a DeLonghi Service Center in San Francisco... but they don't actually repair the ice cream makers. We have since identified a local ice cream maker repair shop - by calling a place on the Breville list - that might be able to repair it - but we did just purchase the Musso Lussino Lello 4080.
Musso Lussino Lello - the absolute Mercedes of ice cream makers. They are very expensive, they are just gorgeous, and they make really excellent ice cream. That said, most of us then put our ice cream in a regular home freezer - not a commercial blast freezer. So, after the ice cream has chilled and firmed up, the difference in quality is not as dramatically pronounced... it's still the best home-made ice cream/gelato, but it's not hugely better than the ice cream that DeLonghi produces.
Service and reliability - 1 year warranty, which is downright shameful for a $700.00 machine. Customer service is lousy (before buying, we left questions on their voice mail and have never heard back from them); the repair service is apparently very poor too, according to reviews.
Very kind fellow reviewers on Amazon answered my question about reliability, and many of them have had the machines for a good long time; up to 10+ years . There is no local approved Service Center in the San Francisco Bay area; figure on mailing your machine to New Jersey if it breaks during their fleeting warranty period. After that period, a local (Breville approved ) repair shop in our area says they can probably fix a Lello, because the parts are available. BTW, the repair store also said that appliances manufactured in China often don't have replacement parts available.
Ease of use - Dead simple - 2 buttons, one timer knob. Clean up is no harder than the other machines - the paddle is easier to clean, which evens things out.
A final note about expense - the very expensive Musso Lussino Lello does make financial sense if you make a lot of ice cream. I figure that my ingredients, using organic materials, etc., cost about $4-5 a pint. The local top end ice cream places (Ici, Tara's) charge $9-10 a pint. For us, it will absolutely be worth it - but I think a consumer rating magazine would not hesitate to give the DeLonghi the 'best buy' rating.
"NICOGENA Slow Cooker Dust Cover with Handle and Front Pocket for Crock Pot 6-8 Quart"

"NICOGENA Slow Cooker Dust Cover with Handle and Front Pocket for Crock Pot 6-8 Quart"
1. Excellent machine! Well built and look nice but it is heavy, so I leave it on the kitchen counter (which I had planned for). It is not huge but big and heavy enough that you wouldn't want to move it in and out of cabinet for every use.
2. Cool super fast! I turn the 'chill' on for few minutes before pouring the ice cream base in. You will see a layer of frost within few minutes of chilling.
3. Easy to use! Only 2 buttons and a dial timer. The manual has some simple explanations, but it is pretty intuitive.
4. Included some simple recipe to churn gelato right away! Came out nice.
5. Work like a horse!! I have been making gelato every week since I got the machine, trying different recipes from books I found. There were days that I made 3 or 4 batches back-to-back and the machine keeps cranking yummy gelato without any issues. Every batch turned out delicious!!
6. Easy to clean! I was also (initially) skeptical with the built-in-bowl and concerned about cleaning it. But, I can testify to others' comment about cleaning the bowl. Real easy - just use a sponge and some warm water. Few rounds of sponges and wiping it down takes about 3 minutes.
7. It's not the most quiet machine! No problem having a conversation in the kitchen but I won't stand next to the machine while on the phone. A minor disappointment but I don't mind it since it gives me yummy gelato at the end of the day. For comparison, my blender and magic bullet are louder, except it is not continuous for 30 minutes.
Overall, it is an expensive machine but I do believe in the quality of Italian made product vs. some made in C country. This ice cream machine has delivered and I have no regret spending the extra money. I'm hopeful it will lasts for years.... we shall see.
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.
