Holiday Gift Guide: Serve up some sweet treats with The Automatic Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker
Have you ever wished you had some ice cream, but didn't want to make the drive to the store just to get some? I know we've experienced that, and living 10+ miles away from the store it just doesn't seem logical to drive clear into the store just for a sweet treat. Now that we have The Automatic Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker I don't have to worry about that anymore. With a few simple ingredients (that most have in their refrigerator already like milk, yogurt, or cream) you can make sweet, and yummy ice cream right at home. And you can add anything to it you like to make it the flavor you just happen to be craving at the moment. I made some yummy vanilla yogurt recently and I added granola and raspberry jam to mine and it was wonderful. Because I made a simple vanilla yogurt we were able to each add whatever flavoring to it we wanted. There wasn't any arguing over what flavor to buy, or buying multiple containers to make everyone happy. And with the cool topping dispensers on the side of the machine the kids were able to add sprinkles all by themselves! It's super easy to use, and it's just as easy to clean up after the ice cream is all gone. Definitely two pluses in my book as a busy mom.
This ice cream maker produces 1-1/2 qts. of soft serve ice cream, yogurt, sorbet, or sherbet in 35 minutes without the need for chemicals, salt, or ice, and allows you to mix your own toppings from three separate hoppers that automatically dispense nuts, cookie crumbles, and sprinkles through a funnel directly into a tube of frozen confection as it falls into a waiting bowl at the push of a button. The unit operates from a single switch, and its double-insulated freezer bowl holds its temperature (requires 12 hours of freezing prior) while mixing all the ingredients needed to make any of the products; a single lever dispenses soft-serve (harder ice cream must be removed from the freezer bowl). All parts remove easily for cleaning, and the device holds a stack of flat or sugar cones. Plugs into AC. Includes instruction booklet and recipe book.
