An ice cream maker is an important item to have when you are planning summer meals with family and friends. A backyard picnic is never complete without homemade ice cream. That coldest, most delicious of treats.
The ice cream makers on the market today take the work out of making ice cream. It is just a matter of deciding what flavor that you want to make, and then preparing the mixture to put in the ice cream maker. Once the mixture is in the machine and you have pushed the start button you can sit back and relax.
There are several different models of ice cream makers. The quantity of ice cream to be made in each unit varies. You may only want to make one quart at a time, or if you have a lot of family and friends around when you make ice cream you want a much larger one. Some ice cream makers with compressors make consecutive batches of ice cream for large functions.
The ice cream makers of today are versatile enough to make other frozen desserts like frozen yogurt and gelato; they will even make frozen cocktails.
There is nothing better than a quart or two of homemade ice cream or sorbet or frozen yogurt. With a fully automatic ice maker you can have ice cream or drinks in twenty five minutes. This is possible with a fully integrated motor, double-insulated freezer bowl and automatic mixing paddle doing all the work.
The gel ice cream maker is made with a gel canister that is frozen by putting it the freezer for several hours or overnight. Then as the paddles turn the mixture the gel canister will freeze the ice cream. It is best to keep the gel canister in the freezer so that it will be ready for use.
You can also purchase a play and toss gel ball that will freeze the ice cream as the ball is tossed around. This would be fun for the kids to play with by the pool.
Ice cream makers are available made with plastic and with a choice of colors. You may prefer the stainless steel or brushed metal models.
