This machine is small in stature, but big on features and can produce two litres of ice cream, sorbet or frozen yoghurt in less than half an hour.

Ben & Jerry, eat your heart out. This ice cream maker whips up excellent, soft-scoop ice cream quickly and with very little noise. All in just 18 minutes.

Whether you're a cookie-dough or caramel-swirl fan, this simple system makes up to 2.4 pints of delicious home-made ice cream within 40 minutes.
For a fully automatic ice cream maker, this is as good as it gets. It gives great, tasty, creamy results using simple controls.

Gaggia's neat, fully automatic ice cream maker produces well-mixed results. It's wonderfully quiet and can create multiple batches with ease.
