The 10 Best ice-cream makers

Billed as the ice-cream maker for children, this compact new kitchen gadget can make homemade ice cream in just 15 minutes. But you have to churn manually.
This isn't quite as easy to assemble or clean as some machines, but the controls are well-marked and it's simple to use. It also comes with seven great recipes.
If you've got a lot of mouths to feed, this machine will come in handy. With a built-in compressor and LED temperature display, there's no need to pre-freeze the bowl.
The compressor system of this machine means there's no need to pre-freeze the bowl, creating 1.5l of ice cream in just 40 minutes.
This churns great ice cream quietly in around 18 minutes. And unlike some machines, it deals with berries and alcohol with ease.
You'll have to be really serious about ice cream to buy this, but attention to detail is unsurpassed, including a sensor to tell you whether the mixture is the right consistency.
The bowl, not the paddle, rotates with this, which makes it noisy and a bit slow. But the machine is simple to use and the ice cream is second to none.
This piece of design wizardry makes nine ice lollies in minutes. Simply place the drum in the freezer for 10 hours, then insert the lolly sticks and pour in the juice.
This machine is quick, quiet and easy to operate. Handy features include the built-in timer, ice-cream scoop and base that doubles as a storage lid for the bowl.
Another machine that's great for large families. As well as being fully automatic (you don't have to freeze the bowl first), it comes with one fixed bowl and a removable one.
