About this deal
A favourite with Mumsnetters, Argos does it again with this nifty ice cream maker. Not only does it rate highly for how easy it is to use but with its chic red design, it’ll look great on your kitchen worktop too. It has a viewing window so you can see exactly how your creation is coming along and with a 0.6L fast-freezing bowl, your ice cream will be ready to devour in 45 minutes. The only downside is the size but if you’re just wanting to give ice cream-making a go this summer without breaking the bank this is a great budget option. We have a basic Magimix that goes in the freezer. The bowl is pretty small. It lives in the freezer with the peas inside it so doesn't take up much space and is always ready when we need it. It is great" - EasilyConfusedIndith Our verdict
If you firmly believe that preparing popcorn should be a fun, entertaining experience, then this fabulous creation is sure to keep everyone happy. Whipping up homemade ice cream is surprisingly easy with a nifty ice cream maker. Fun for kids young and old, you can be as inventive as you like by throwing in fruit, nuts, yoghurt, chocolate (or booze) or keep things traditional by churning up classic vanilla ice cream or refreshing sorbets. The popcorn is produced in a small stainless steel kettle within the container. Once it is ready, the clear outer allows you to watch the popcorn fly out. Because the kettle is heated and stirs the kernels, few come out unpopped.One of the more well-known models on the list, so we had high expectations. While it did the job, there were a few disappointing flaws.
A homeware brand popular for its affordable yet decent quality gadgets, Sensio's machine is one of the smallest on the market, yet its 1200 watt power will crank out family-sized bowls by the time the credits have finishing rolling.Frustratingly, however, it is unclear exactly what size of popcorn portion this maker has the potential to create. Step 2: we will advise you on how to go about getting the machine to our workshop for inspection by our engineer A single scoop of kernels is enough to make approximately one serving, and there is a little measuring cup included. This means no waste and no shortages. There are four popcorn boxes included for the authentic cinema experience.It depends on the size of the machine’s bowl. Bowls can vary in size from 0.5 litres to 2 litres on average but most are around 1.5 litres which is around two tubs of Ben & Jerry’s for reference. Are ice cream makers easy to use? Use the lid to measure out one serving of kernels, switch on and let the corn pop of its own accord. The looks aren’t the only selling point. Popcorn is well shielded when it comes out, so there is little which goes astray. Its compact size means it can be left out on display at all times without getting in the way.
