Ice cream makers
SKINTED Andrew James ice cream maker, £24.99, andrewjamesworldwide.com
This 1.5-litre ice cream maker is a freeze-first model, meaning you need to freeze the bowl in advance. Once that’s done, just add your ingredients and press a button to make ice cream, sorbet or frozen yogurt in just 20-30 mins. It’s very simple to use and clean, and its compact size is great for those with limited kitchen surfaces.
MINTED Cuisinart gelato and ice cream professional maker, £249.99, John Lewis
There’s no need to freeze your bowl with this maker: simply add your ingredients, set the timer and press start. There are two paddles – one for ice cream and one for gelato – but you can also make sorbet and frozen yogurt. It’s very quick, making professional quality ice cream in less than an hour, but its large size means it’s not ideal for small kitchens.
