How do you choose your ice cream maker?
An ice cream maker consists of a tray and a turbine that will lower the temperature of a preparation while avoiding the formation of crystals.
There are 3 types of ice cream makers, with more or less sophisticated refrigeration systems:
> Single ice cream maker: Consisting of a turbine and a tank, to be placed in the freezer in direct contact with the wall. First prize at 20-25 €
> Ice cream maker: Works with a cold disc that is placed in advance in the freezer. Once the disc is frozen (count 18 to 24h), it is placed at the bottom of the ice cream maker: the cold will spread at the time of the turbinage. From 45 €.
> Standalone ice cream maker: Has its own refrigeration system. Between 150 and 500 €.
And be careful of the capacity of the tank! Take a tank of 1 L, 1.5 L minimum (or you will not be able to taste your delicious homemade ice cream to your guests …).
