I am at a loss for words (almost!). This is a completely amazing piece of equipment. I have children with various food allergies, dairy being one of these. I've tried the 'gel filled, freeze the bowl for 8 hours' ice cream makers & been less then impressed. I also don't like having to have to do the plan a day ahead that these require. But this is a revelation on just how good home-made ice cream can be. It's really, really good. Better than anything that I have ever bought. And ready in 45 minutes. It is very heavy,14kg & difficult to lift as the weight is all on one side & the metal handles are rather sharp. But as it costs so much I am quite happy to have it on display ;-) It is noisy but I didnt find it annoyingly so (quieter by far than my washing machine) & I can forgive it most things for the smiles on my childrens' faces as they tucked in to delicious ice cream. I'm quite happy with compliments I have been getting from adults too. I really wished I had purchased one years ago.
