Homemade ice cream making as an indispensable life skill.
Category Archives: Ice Cream Maker Reviews
The one essential tool for making homemade ice cream, gelato and many other frozen desserts is a good, reliable ice cream maker. Unfortunately nothing about making great ice cream is inexpensive. In my opinion however, relative to a lot of other things in life, you get a lot of bang for your ice cream making buck. Home made ice cream is relatively easy to make and much tastier than anything you can by in a store. I assume you feel pretty similarly or you wouldn’t be reading this. Nevertheless to make ice cream you have to invest in an ice cream maker. Good ones that will give you years of service are going to cost you some money up front. I had originally intended to review a lot of different machines but to be honest it simply wasn’t worth it. Most of the under $100 ones are mostly junk. In the end I decided to publish reviews for the ones that I felt were the best at various price points. At the moment they both happen to be Cuisinart but that is a coincidence. I have no connection to the company and will replace those reviews in a heart-beat the second something better comes along. At some point I will review both vintage and very high end machines for the fun of it. Before you read some of the individual reviews (at the bottom of the page), you may want to review our post on “How to Buy the Best Ice Cream Maker” below.
