which machine is the best one for making ice cream at home?

The pros say that finding the right ice cream maker for you means assessing how often you’ll be using it.

As Business Insider puts it: “If you’re going to make ice cream once or twice a month, a machine with a canister that you pre-freeze is your best bet. If you’re going to make ice cream once or twice a week, a self-refrigerating machine with a built-in compressor is the way to go.”

Every machine on our list is a self-refrigerating compressor model. ‘Cause that’s how we plan to roll. There’s a surprisingly strong consensus across all the consumer product testing sites we visited about the small number of truly luxurious home ice cream makers on the market right now. So our list is short: these are the ones to consider based on all the expert advice we could find.

1. Breville Smart Scoop

The gold standard of luxury home ice cream makers is the Breville “Smart Scoop.” Nearly every site we visited says so. The machine holds 1.5 quarts and automatically senses the hardness of the mixture based on 12 blade speeds, including sorbet, frozen yogurt, gelato, and ice cream. Experts note that you can let it “prechill” for half an hour in advance to cut down on the mix time. The barrel comes out, so you can clean it in the dishwasher. The Smart Scoop’s brightly lit LCD screen and control panel with over-sized buttons make it easy to use—even for kids. And the machine’s mix-in feature beeps to remind you that it’s time to add chips, candies and nuts. Smart!

2. Lello Musso Pola Dessert Maker

The New York Times says that the Lello 4080 Musso Lussino is “the crème de la crème of home ice cream makers.” Capable of churning out up to 60 quarts of ice cream in an hour, or two quarts in less than 20 minutes, there’s no need to pre-freeze the bowl or the mixture. Sadly, that model is extremely hard to find in the US right now.

So if you decide you really want to GO BIG, move up to the even more elite model from the Italian brand: the Lello Musso Pola Dessert Maker. It does everything the 4080 does, and more.
