The machine must be switched on before adding the Ice cream or sorbet recipe to prevent the mix from immediately freezing on the inside of the inner bowl.

Top Tips and Important Information


When pouring mixture into the bowl, always stop at least 4 cm (1.5 inches) from the top, as the mixture will in-crease in volume during freezing.

Do not stop and start the machine during the freezing process, as the mixture may freeze when it comes into contact with the bowl and prevent movement of the paddle.

To avoid overheating the motor, the direction of rotation will change if the mixture becomes too thick. If the direction of rotation continues to change, stop the machine when the mixture is ready.

In the unlikely event of the motor overheating, a safety cut out will operate causing the motor to stop. If this happens, switch off, unplug the machine and allow the power unit to cool.

The ice cream produced should be soft. This can be transferred to a separate container for storage in the freezer or if you wish to firm the ice cream before eating.

Do not use metal utensils to remove mix from the bowl.

Do not remove the inner bowl from the freezer until it is ready to make ice cream.

We suggest that you keep your inner bowl in the freezer so that it is ready for use. Place it in a plastic bag be-fore freezing. Freeze the inner bowl in the upright position.

Always make sure the inner bowl is thoroughly dry before placing it in the freezer.

Do not puncture or heat the inner bowl.

The inner bowl should be placed in a freezer that is operating at a temperature of –18˚c (-0.40˚F) or below for 8 hours before use.

For best results always refrigerate the ingredients before making ice cream.

The addition of alcohol to recipes inhibits the freezing process.






Appliance Safety

Avoid contact with moving parts. Keep hands, hair, clothing, spatulas and other utensils away during operation to reduce the risk of injury to persons and/or damage to the machine.

Always make sure everything is thoroughly cleaned before making ice cream or sorbet.

Never freeze ice cream that has been fully or partially defrosted.

Any ice cream that contains raw ingredients should be consumed within one week. Ice cream tastes best when fresh.

Ice cream or sorbet that contains raw or partially cooked eggs should not be given to young children, pregnant women, the elderly or people who are generally unwell.

To prevent freezer burn, always ensure that hands are protected when handling the inner bowl, especially when first removed from the freezer.

If the freezer solution appears to be leaking from the inner bowl, discontinue use. The freezing solution is non toxic.

Do not place the machine on hot surfaces such as stoves, hotplates or near open gas flames.





Always switch off, unplug and dismantle the appliance before cleaning.

Never put the power unit in water or let the cord or plug get wet.

Do no wash parts in the dishwasher.

Do not clean the appliance with scouring powders, steel wool pads or other abrasive materials.
