Choosing an ice cream maker
Ice cream makers fall into two categories: ones with a built-in freezer, generally costing between £200 to £300, and models (like the Andrew James) with a removable bowl that needs to be frozen before use. These models generally cost less than £50.
All ice cream makers come with a recipe book, although some can be quite brief.
How we test ice cream makers
We rigorously test ice cream makers, timing how long it takes to make the ice cream, including the time taken to pre-freeze the mixture or the bowl. We try out the same two recipes in each machine, one containing alcohol and the other a mix of fruits.
