"Good, but could be better" star star star star star_border I haven't used this type of machine before. The opening for the ingredients is terrible. The instructions are vague. What is "the right consistency" 40-50 minutes later and my paddle is frozen in the ice-cream and I can't get my first batch out! - I had to let it thaw out and start again. Once I got the hang of it, it was fine and the ice-cream was very good. Adding additional flavours like nuts / choclate chips etc will be a challenge. However, I think it will be well used this summer. Rating 4 stars due to the poor opening for ingredients and poor instructions manual. Mrs McNeil - 19 April 2021 support_agent A note from the team Thank you for your review. We're pleased the ice-cream you made was really good! It can be a little trial and error at first making home-made ice cream however we'll be sure to pass your feedback along to our Buyers.
