First attempt at making ice cream so was looking for a cheap appliance. Noticed the Russell Hobbs 'Temptations' model in store at Sainsburys for £19.99. Says it was originally £59.99. I bought mine yesterday, 18th Aug 08 in the St Clares branch and they were fully stocked. Probably need to go to one of the larger stores?
Comes with a recipe 'book' (leaflet) that tells you all the ingredients you need to make a few different flavours. It's not a super fancy well-built model (feel's a bit plastic-y), but if you are looking for a cheap 'have a go' model like I was, then it's ideal. Nice size too, as remember you need to fit the 'bowl' in your freezer. Literally has one switch on it for on and off, so not exactly high-tech either!
Hope it helps someone.. I'm certainly happy
*edit - sorry about the link to sainsburys kitchen appliances. 1st post and wasn't sure which to select as it's in-store deal only!
