This review is from: Gaggia RI9101/08 Gelatiera Ice Cream Maker (Kitchen & Home)
This is a great machine. It's sturdy, sensible - yet stylish looking - and it's relatively quiet. It's easy to use and you can add bits like nuts and chocolate whilst the paddle is turning. Cleaning is pretty straight forward - though I agree with one of the other reviewers that it's a little fiddly getting the ice-cream coated paddle out without your hands getting completely gooey. Never mind. You now have an excuse to lick them off. Someone has to.
A word of warning: don't be tempted to overfill the bowl even though it doesn't look full. 600 ml mixture is the max (this leaves a bit of room for expansion) and the machine will cut out if it has to struggle with much more. I know this from experience. All in all, I'm very satisfied, but fear I will need another freezer to hold all my creations e.g. Banana, blackcurrant, mango and grappa sorbet, strawberry, chocolate, vanilla bean...
