Breville BCI600XL Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker
If you want multiple setting on the hardness of your ice cream, try the Breville BCI600XL Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker. With 12 different hardness settings, you'll get the right consistency that you want, every time for maximum ice cream enjoyment. The Breville will make 1.5 quarts of hard ice cream in about an hour but it will take less time if you want softer ice cream.
This ice cream maker will keep your frozen treats frozen for 3 hours after it’s finished, and if the pre-cool setting is turned on about 20 minutes before you begin, it will shave about 10 minutes off of ice cream production time. Although fully automatic, this unit can be run manually if you want to experiment with different times and ingredients. At 16 inches long by 10 inches deep and high, it is fairly compact too.
The BCI600XL is versatile in making sorbet, frozen yogurt and gelato, and although it is rated at making 1.5 quarts of ice cream per batch, in actuality it’s more like 1 quart so take that into consideration if you decide to choose this model.
