10 best ice cream makers
Why spend pounds on tubs of the sweet stuff in the supermarket when you can make your own innovative frozen desserts at home?

Love good ice cream, but fed up of paying over £3 for just 500ml? Then why not make your own? It will cost you around half the price and you get the satisfaction of making your own flavour combinations. And although you have to fork out for the machine itself, the cheaper ones can pay for themselves in as little as 25 uses.
Problem is, some ice cream makers don’t produce good results and others can be a hassle to use. That’s why we’ve got busy testing them to bring you a list of the best machines across all budgets.
Some, such as the Andrew James Ice Cream, Sorbet and Frozen Yoghurt Machine, have a removable bowl which needs hours of pre-freezing before use – so it’s worth considering the bowl size if you for this option, especially if you have a small freezer. Meanwhile, the pricier ice cream makers, such as Cuisinart Professional Ice Cream Maker, will make ice cream from scratch in as little as 40 minutes.

Lakeland My Kitchen Ice Cream Maker churns good ice cream quietly and quickly and is a bargain for under £40. If you’re willing to pay out more, the Magimix Gelato Chef makes astonishingly good ice cream from scratch and thanks to the two bowls, you can make huge quantities too.
