The best kitchen appliances, the best everything actually, are the perfect combo of function and style. They work seamlessly and efficiently and look good doing it. And we expect nothing less from our ice cream makers. We want them to look chic, pretty, fun – and churn out the creamiest homemade helado. Here some cool summer ice cream makers we have our eye on.
You guys, you can make your own soft serve!!! Skip the boardwalk and that fancy fro-yo place and feast on cones of homemade ice cream with this fun soft serve machine. It makes 1 ½ quarts of ice cream in 20 minutes, has three containers for mix-ins (just pull the tabs to release), and a cone holder. You could open up your own shop with one of these!
Summer is about being outside, laying on a beach, playing some games… with a ball that makes ice cream! That’s right, just fill up this genius appliance / toy with all natural ingredients then roll, toss, and shake and 20 minutes later (just around the time you want to take a break), bust it open and scoop out your ice cream. And they said you couldn’t play with your food.
If you skew retro, this ice cream maker is for you! Good news: though it looks like an old timey churn-your-own, it actually has an electric motor that whips up 4 quarts of ice cream per batch.
Behold, an ice cream maker from the future! No seriously, doesn’t this look like a new fangled piece of tech? It’s actually a healthy “soft serve and ice cream” maker. Why the quotes? Because it actually churns up frozen fruit (like bananas) into smooth, helado-like treats.
What better way to make ice cream than an ice cream maker that looks like an ice cream cone! This cute little machine whips up 4 quarts of ice cream, fro yo, or sorbet in less than 30 minutes and the aluminum mixing canister keeps it all chilly. And did we mention that it looks an ice cream cone?
If you’re weary about adding yet another machine to your ever growing kitchen arsenal that already includes a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, just buy the ice cream maker attachment. Once it’s sitting on the mixer, it blends in seamlessly, looking like the regular bowl. Except it churns out ice cream.
