I've been looking to buy an ice cream maker and found this on M&S.
It can make 1.5Litres of ice cream within 40 minutes.
This has a built in refrigeration unit so there is no bowl that has the be frozen over night.
Made of stainless steel so easy to clean and looks good in the kitchen.
Also comes with a measureing cup and a ice cream scoop
All that's missing is the cones and a flake :)
Also comes with 2 years guarantee.

Similar ice cream machines cost in excess of £200 everywhere else,
so was very surprised to find this in M&S.

I bought one over the weekend and it works very well and it's quite quiet too.
Has a removable bowl and all of it is easy to wash.
It is big and heavy but all these machinese are.

It's price is £99 and you can use quidco too.
But i think it is cheaper if you just buy in store as there is no delivery charge and you get the VAT reduction to £96.89.

Details:

135 watt
1.5 litre capacity
Compressor fast cooling
Automatic programs
Automatic shut-off
Digital display for temperature and time
Dimensions: H32 x W38.5 x D23cm
Stainless steel

"it's not just an ice cream machine, it's an M&S ice cream machine"

Great bit of kit :thumbsup:

how many tubs of ice cream could you buy for a £100
then there is the electric and ingredients to add on top
it will end up with the yoghurt maker , bread maker ,doughnut maker etc,etc under the sink
#3
Yes it may end up in the cupboard rotting away but that's not the faulty of the product!
That the fault of the buyer that bought it on impulse and then was too lazy to use it! ;)

The only people that should consider buying this are keen cooks.
For me i like making green tea and sesame ice creams which you simply can not buy in the UK.
Remember it is half the price of any other similar product, has a long guarantee and it's M&S too boot.

I find the B&J's Ice Cream too sweet, as they use condensed milk in a lot of them.We have one for £35 and it's used every week, and almost every night in the summer.

20 and most of it seems to be choclet flavour.

I so want one, been thinking of one of these for a few years but so £££ wish I had seen this in spet 08 only £74 but this is still a killer price.

Hot & rep

Lets do some maths.

500ml tubs of Haagen Daz or B&J cost about £4 in supermarkets.
So let say we bought 40 tubs of 500ml or 20 Litres of ice cream
it would cost
40 x £4 = £160.

Now this machine can make 1.5L per use
The cost of ingredients to make 1.5L is as follow:

600ml double cream = £1.70
2 large eggs = 80p
50g sugar = 5p
100g chocolate = £1
electricity for 40 minutes say ~20p

It costs £3.75 to make 1.5L of homemade ice cream.
If we wanted to make 20 litres of ice cream we would need to use the machine about 14 times.
20L / 1.5L = 13.3

Now the total cost of making 20 litres of ice cream would be
£100 for the machine plus 14 x £3.75 = £152.5

So the machine will break even within 14 uses assuming we ignore your time labour costs.

Also this is great to impress friends at dinner parties or fun to make with your kids.
You can also make sorbets or frozen yoghurts for the healthy conscious.

Lets do some maths.

2 litre tub of tesco value ice cream cost 70p.
So let say we bought 40 tubs of 2l or 80 Litres of ice cream
it would cost
40 x £0.70 = £28.

Now this machine can make 1.5L per use
The cost of ingredients to make 1.5L is as follow:

600ml double cream = £1.70
2 large eggs = 80p
50g sugar = 5p
100g chocolate = £1
electricity for 40 minutes say ~20p

It costs £3.75 to make 1.5L of homemade ice cream.
If we wanted to make 80 litres of ice cream we would need to use the machine about 54 times.
80L / 1.5L = 53.3

Now the total cost of making 80 litres of ice cream would be
£100 for the machine plus 14 x £3.75 = £302

So thumbs up to Tesco value and it's Ice "Reconstituted Whey Protein Concentrate"! :D

Seriously, this looks like a very good deal and I'm trying to convince myself I would use it, but I don't think I would. Heat added though

hehhehe does tesco value brand ice cream actually have "cream" in the ingredients list?:)
#9
The review posted on the M&S site in November states the price was £74, so it is considerably more expensive now.

Why would it have to?

Ice cream does not have to contain cream.

Lots of home made recipes need not contain cream, and the fact you can make "ice cream" which would not be ice cream legally to sell, is a big attraction to having a machine at home, as commercial ice cream it needs to contain SUGAR! Low fat and low sugar recipes are one of the big selling points of these sorts of machines!
#11
Now,if this was a Mr Whippy type ice cream machine i would order like a shot,but block or scoop type leaves me cold........................................
#12
What is the point of this?

Can't you put it in a plastic container and then put that in the freezer :?
#13
I was genuinely interested in knowing if tesco value ice cream actually have cream in the recipe.
As if it didn't the second calcualtion wouldn't be a fair one as the cream is the most expensive ingredient.
#14
Yes you can make ice cream using a plastic container but you will have to wait several hours for it to freeze.
But more importantly the texure will not be as good as it's the air that is incoperated into ice cream that make it taste like ice cream as opposed to an ice lolly.

Hey, anyone who says this is not good value is REALLY missing the point.

I've got a Gaggia, which although the top of the heap when it comes to ice-cream makers, is still worth it at £300!! Although I paid £85 on Ebay.

All you do is take a carton of smoothie (tesco's or asda will do, but Innocent is far better), pour that in, and it provides "ice-cream" for four, and it's delicious and HEALTHY. We're greedy, too!

So, compare the health-giving aspects of that versus Tesco's "value" C?*P and think about what you're putting into your kids' bodies. Here you have a chance to start your kids on a life-long appreciation of fruit instead of cream and reconstituted whey product and sugar and e-numbers out the backside.

I should be an evangelist ....

Hey .... try some decent recipes. If you want some proper stuff, get a ben-and-jerry's recipe. NOT gritty, and just as good as Haagen Dazs or Ben & Jerry's! Or, try a carton of innocent smoothie -- ALSO not gritty, and most certainly not awful!!!!

OK, someone tell me to shut up.

Thanks.

Hey, say what you like, just anyone listening is going to be a bit disappointed :-(

I can't abide innocent smoothies as they are, let alone frozen.... bananas dominate everything for me, and I LIKE banana! :-(

While I agree with much you say about the machines... sugar is sugar, wherever you get it from, and just because it is fruit sugar, it is no less problematic and needs watching! Commercial smoothies are perhaps a poor example of truly healthy food, (as well as being too banana dominated to me)!

The true beauty of ice cream machines surely is the control you have on sugar and fat... if your not bothered about that, try Lidl (Real) Vanilla at 3 quid for 2.5 Litres and you probably wont bother making it at all! :-)
#21
These are fun to play with, the creative people can experiment and come up with their own flavours, you know what's in it and if it's natural or e numbers and it's fun. Plus it's fun.

I don't know how the price compares so I am abstaining but I would like one.
#22
montriff;4190671

Well, with Lidl vanilla @ £1.09 a litre tub you'd get around 91!

However, you do need to take the cost of ingredients into account in which case this machine probably works out more expensive!
#23
Was £74, now £99 lol.
#24
I'd really like one. If I'd seen it when it was £74 I'd have been sold.
#25
I want one, but won't get it because there's always deals on ice cream in Farm Foods, like Carte doir, 2 for £2 and so on. Nice gadget tho, if you not affected by the credit crunch. voted hot.

I believe the main thing the ice cream machines do is aerate the mixture and freeze it slowsly. Which you can do with a freezer. The simple instructions on celtnet.co.uk suggest that:
If you don't have an ice cream making machine, pour the mixture into a non-metallic freezer-proof dish then cover with a lid and place in the freezer. Freeze until the sorbet is almost firm (but still a little liquid). Cut the sorbet into chunks and place in a blender. Process until smooth then transfer the sorbet back into the dish and freeze again until almost firm.
I do this quite often as for some bizarre reason sorbets are just uncommon in this country (even you find them in every Duane Reade in US)

40p eggs? They'd better be golden...
#28
As its been sold cheaper before by the same store how can this be a hot deal ? you would be much better off using your existing freezer a container and an electric whisk and wooden spoon , thousands of recipes online and "sometimes" it is chepaer to make your own , just dont use all that double cream you woul be sick as a dog.

If your own icecream has gone grainy its usually because you havent beaten it enough during freezing.
#29
Doesn't matter now as it seems to be Out Of Stock:?
#30
Really annoying, it is out of stock on website. However, it is available to order in store.
Even without quidco, at a price of £99 this is a darned good deal. Similar machines cost a LOT more money. I don't want to buy electrical goods off ebay simply because you can spend a fair amount of money with no guarantee that it will actually work for more than a week or two.
#31
Looks like this is back in stock, so should be un-expired.
#32
Out of stock to me!
#33
Yes, out of stock again. These things must sell out quickly, as they were in stock.
#34
Hello, Firstly i also got a ice cream maker of the same type, Could you help me tho, Mine did not contain a recipe booklet! I agree a nice looking machine, if only i had the recipe book to make the ice cream, Enjoy
