A domestic Ice-Cream Maker is a machine used to make small quantities of ice-cream for personal consumption. Ice cream makers may prepare the mixture by employing the hand-cranking method or by employing an electric motor. The resulting preparation is often chilled through either pre-cooling the machine or by employing a machine that freezes the mixture. 

 

The great part of testing Ice-Cream Maker is eating ice-cream . Our testing methods involved making several batches of ice-cream with each model in order to test ease of use, ease of cleaning, consistency and other factors. We made basic vanilla ice-cream, using the vanilla recipe provided in each of the Ice-Cream Maker included recipe books, and added mini chocolate chips. This gave us a feel for each machine’s basic freezing and ice -cream making ability while also allowing us to test how evenly mix-ins were distributed.

An Ice-Cream Maker has to simultaneously freeze the mixture while churning it so as to aerate the mixture and avoid ice crystals. As a result, most ice-cream are ready to consume immediately. However, those containing alcohol must often be chilled further to attain a firm consistency.

Some machines, such as certain lower-priced counter top models, require the resulting mixture to be frozen for additional time after churning is complete.

These machines usually comprise an outer bowl, and a smaller inner bowl with a hand-cranked mechanism which turns a paddle, sometimes called a dasher, to stir the mixture. The outer bowl is filled with a freezing mixture of salt and ice. Adding salt to the ice causes freezing-point depression. As salt melts the ice, the heat of fusion allows the ice to absorb heat from the ice cream mixture, which freezes the ice cream.

This type of Ice-Cream Maker is inexpensive but can be inconvenient and messy since the ice and salt mixture produces salty water, which the Ice-Cream Maker must dispose of. The ice and salt mixture must be replenished to make a new batch of ice-cream. 

Many Ice-Cream Maker are available in the market , choosing best is Much difficult . So we Have shortlisted  7 Best Ice Cream Maker to help you in making right decision.
