After browsing the recipe book, I decided to make a simple strawberry ice cream. It's my mum's favourite flavour and I thought it was a good one to start with as it required minimal ingredients and effort. The night before I put the removable bowl in a bag in the freezer so it would be ready the next day - an important step to remember, as the bowl must be frozen for around 12 hours prior to use.
Once the thirty minutes was up, I transferred the ice cream into a Tupperware container and put it in the freezer. I was seriously impressed with how the ice cream had turned out - it was lovely and vibrant in colour and soft to scoop. My homemade strawberry ice cream also got a big thumbs up when it came to trying the ice cream...now strawberry ice cream isn't my favourite but even I thought it tasted good! My mum and dad absolutely loved it and said it tasted as good as the ice cream you buy in the little shops on holiday!
At £34.99 (was £44.99) the Savisto Ice Cream Maker is extremely well priced and perfect for those wanting to try their hand at making ice cream at home. Although it doesn't have an internal freezing mechanism like some of the more expensive machines, I really don't think freezing the bowl is an inconvenience and the machine itself does everything you need it to do. It makes a great amount of ice cream with it's 1.5 litre capacity and I'm sure it's going to get plenty of use in the Hunt household!
