Cuisinart Gelato and Ice Cream Maker 1.5L ICE100BCU 4 "Impressed - firm scoopable Gelato in under 60 minutes!" Mr Rendell 17 July 2019 I previously had a the Sage Smart Scoop Gelato Machine which was struggling to make a very soft Gelato in 80-100 mins. I took the Sage back to the lovely people at Lakeland and swapped it for the Cuisinart Gelato Machine. Cuisinart doesn't have the bells and whisltes (or ice cream van tunes!) of the Sage, but it produces a firm scoopable Gelato in under 60 minutes, and that was without the mix being fridge cold before it went in. I intially thought that the more expensive Gelato machine was best, but if you want firm Gelato in under 60 mins, then Cuisinart was better for me.
