Be aware that its batch capacity is even lower than the freezer-sleeve models; you really shouldn't put more than about 700ml (3 cups or so) of fluid inside if you don't want to be cleaning the lid.
Some have complained about the noise. It is loud, but I can't say I find that surprising... and I'm willing to put up with it for the incredible ice cream, made with pure organic ingredients, and no additives.
There's more to discover (gelato, frozen yoghurt...) but given the results so far I expect the best.
Cons: unsatisfying noise, smallish canister for some
I have been using the ice-20 model and with my fridge, i find it time consuming and inconsistent freezing the canister. So, I really appreciate a machine that freezes on its own. I do put the canister into the fridge or freezer for a brief time beforehand (say 20 mins), just for an extra umph, but dont feel this is necesary. Compared to the ice-20, ice cream made in this machine comes out a tiny bit more firm, with more air, and takes a bit more time per cycle. consequently, a 3 cup cream mix is about the maximum volume it will handle. It results in greater overrun than super premium while still staying in a reasonable range. the accompanying sorbet paddle can be used to produce a more dense product so you also have more texture options. As to the noise, it is fairly loud but not as bad as a blender or coffee grinder. more significantly, its an unsatisfying noise. It doesn't hum but is deeper and more gratingly noticable, and you have to listen to it for 30+ mins at a time. all in all, I do prefer this machine over the ice-20 and am jazzed at making multiple batches over a few hours. I have no idea if spending more on a lello, etc will do you any favors.
I can only find two downsides. The machine is a bit loud when operating. With the machine in the kitchen downstairs, I can still hear it faintly upstairs. You definitely can not have a decent conversation with someone when the machine is on in the same room.
Secondly, there is a small gap at the lip between where the bowl sits and the rest of the machine. If any ice cream/liquid ends up in that crack, it is a bit difficult to clean.
Overall, I feel this is an excellent ice cream maker especially for home use.

The ice cream maker works well, although I'd prefer a 2 litre to the 1.5 litre capacity. However, most of its direct competitors are also limited to 1.5 litres. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Rod Pederson
