Ice cream – a childhood favorite. Modern manufacturers offer a huge range of this delicious dessert for every taste, but real ice cream without preservatives is really difficult to find: manufacturers often replace dairy products for vegetable, and berries and fruit fillers for flavorings. For those who believe that “it used to be better and tastier,” there is a solution – a personal household ice cream maker. It will cook your favorite delicacy to your taste from the products that are in the kitchen. The device opens up possibilities for imagination and broadens the taste experience.
Ice cream machines can be divided into two groups: manual (mechanical) and semi-automatic/automatic. The first ones are not popular nowadays, because in order to cook a portion of dessert in them you need to rotate intensively the handle of the mechanism for more than half an hour. Automatic devices are in demand today. Expertology experts took a closer look at consumer demand for ice cream machines and ranked the top 5 models in the inexpensive and premium categories.
