Having deliberated long and hard over which machine to buy, we were initially favouring the Gaggia (based on many positive reviews) but got the opportunity to buy this at £70 or so less than the Gaggia.

So, we took the plunge and I have to say it is spot on. I have seen one review which complained of this machine cutting out when the consistency reached a certain point but this sounds like a good safeguard to me. Besides, if you want it rock hard, then you would have to freeze it separately anyway - I fail to see how you can have the paddle mix it when it is solid.

There are some recipes included and the vanilla is pretty much identical to the one in Ben & Jerry's recipe book. All the vanilla recipes we have seen said to use vanilla extract so we did, but this is expensive compared to vanilla flavouring or essence. So we tried vanilla flavouring instead and a more sensitive palette may indeed discern between them, but we couldn't - that's the norm for us now. We have used strawberry flavouring and banana flavouring too and they are both spot on. We've also made grapefruit by using 125 ml of grapefruit juice and 300 ml milk in place of the 425 ml milk, then mixed the chopped grapefruit segments at the end - if you like grapefruit, this tastes unbelievable.

It is a doddle to use, too - mix your stuff, put it in the bowl, decide what consistency you want (this is only so you can set the timer to the desired duration) and switch on. All that remains then is to wait for the 'ding' and make sure you get to it before anyone else does.

The capacity of this machine is very good too, making 1.6 litres which is around 3 pints - this is more than most other makes.

I spent hours scouring the internet and reviews both in the UK and the US before finally buying this fabulous product. The main considerations for me were 1. quality of the machine (sturdy/unlikely to fall to pieces after two uses) 2. ease of use 3. no need to freeze any parts in advance 4. no need to add vodka to the bowl every time you used it (like apparently the Gaggia). Amazon delivered this item on time with the usual amazing logistical efficiency that makes them my number one choice for buying anything on the internet. We let the product sit for 24 hours and have been churning away ever since. I bought a couple of books with this but the one I like the most is the ultimate ice cream book by bruce weinstein which is all you need to figure it out (includes sorbets, granitas, yogurt etc.). This is a really fantastic machine. Buy it and have a great time.

Like others, I did much research before purchasing. After all it would be an expensive appliance purchase to 'get wrong'. I was within seconds of purchasing the Magimix competitor product but after looking at a YouTube demonstration I realised I did not like the requirement to place a saline or alcohol liquid between the bowls mentioned here and buried in the product's online manual AND I did not like how the arm 'looked' that was to turn the paddle... it looked flimsy.

All the positive recommendations here swayed me. After all I already had a Cuisinart US voltage ice cream maker for some time.

Bottom Line: I could not be more pleased with how this product makes ice cream! I am an experienced ice cream maker and have used any number of freezer insert type models over the years. Ice cream can now be made 'on a whim' all that is required is to make the mix, pour it in and turn it on. At first I thought the 40-60 minute churn time would be a negative of the product but the resulting ice cream texture is so good that it is worth the wait. And yes it is a bit noisy while in action but still the time and noise issues are minor given the quality of the outcome. Hence my 5 star recommendation.

By Dolphin #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 20 Sept. 2007
I have owned this machine for a few months and am very happy with the results. The recipe book that comes with the machine contains a reasonable number of recipes and, after trying vanilla, I decided to experiment! Blueberry ice creams is fantastic (I just liquidised and strained two punnets of blueberries with a small amount of apple juice and substituted the mix for the milk in the vanilla recipe) and did the same with Raspberries. Have also made honey ice cream (vanilla recipe again, this time leaving out the sugar and adding 200g or so of honey), which was fragrant and delicious. It seems you can make lovely ice cream with minimum fuss, to the extent that I no longer purchase ice cream at all.

The machine is noisy, there's no getting away from that and it is better to leave it to work its magic whilst you are in another room. But the ping when it finishes is loud enough to alert you when the cycle is completed.

I've given it four stars as it is expensive but the results are worth it and it is incredibly easy to use.

Gets four stars because I love the machine - makes great ice cream / sorbet etc, seems very solid and well made, and isn't bad to look at.

But loses a star because it makes an unholy racket that might put you off using it. Don't imagine that you can have the machine going in a room you are using. It makes a grinding, groaning noise that sounds like mechanical torture, and then the paddle changes direction and it gets even worse.

Strange because I can't imagine what's making such a racket - the chiller unit is pretty quiet, so it must be the stirring paddle. But plenty of other kitchen gadgets manage to turn a paddle or blade without inflicting that kind of din.

Mine lives under the stairs and the gnashing of cogs can still be heard throughout the house. Buy one - but only if you've got somewhere to muffle it!
