We had a Gaggia for a while and it was EXCELLENT, but much smaller quantities of icecream produced. I am afraid I broke it by putting the wrong amount of vodka in the cooling unit.

We are thinking about getting another though for the summer. There is NOTHING like home made icecream. :)

Especially when you know what went into it!

And there are no preservatives or additives as with the ones in the stores.
That is, unless you buy all-natural ice cream which can cost a fortune!!

I've stopped buying ice cream 4 years ago. That's when I got my machine. And I enjoy doing that because it makes me feel so proud!

And most of all, no salt, ice nor prefreezing a space-robbing bowl in the freezer is necessary.

"healthier ice cream"

I have made ice cream with just 1/2 cup of whole milk, tofu, some splenda, some SF/FF instant pudding...egg white...a quart is about 600 and some calories, so if my husband and I sit down to split a quart after dinner, we are eating a pretty healthy desert. Working with the pudding in an ice creamer maker is tricky, but it came out very, very creamy. I'm still experimenting, I bought a KA ice cream attachment and I like it a lot so far--makes just enough for the two of us.

Let us know the exact measurements of the ingredients when you're done experimenting, please.

I'd like to try this one myself!! Thank you.

Interesting, let us know how it turns out when you've got it "figured out".

Here's what mine looks like and the review that I wrote on it;

I have a manual/hand-cranked Donvier that I think I paid maybe $20-$30 for about 8 years ago. It makes great ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbets, etc. & isn't a big deal to use. You just give it a couple of turns every few minutes for about 20 minutes. Kinda fun.

I'd be happy to post, but I am new here, so please direct me--would I post it here, or under the recipes section?

Thanks. Mary Ann

Go to "Forum Listings"

to

"Desserts"

within Desserts, "Frozen"

That will take you where you need to be.

For years I've been wanting an ice cream maker. But everytime I look at a model, it requires that the bowl be frozen first.

As I want to be able to make ice cream anytime I want to, and as I have no space in my freezer, I need an ice cream maker that does not require freezing the bowl.

Is there such a model? And would it work as well as the ones that require freezing the bowl?

Thanks!
