The Smart Scoop: Ice Cream Maker with Automatic Hardness Setting
“The creamier the mix, the thicker it churns.”
Normally if you want to make something more delicate, like a sorbet or a yoghurt, an ice cream maker needs constant supervision. Whereas the Smart Scoop senses the hardness and switches to ‘keep cool’ at just the time for whatever you’re making. It even plays music when it’s ready, styled just like an old ice cream van chime.
There’s no need to pre-freeze bowls since the self-refrigeration system does this for you and it will even keep the ice cream cold for up to three hours.
Heston’s Tip: Many frozen treats have varying levels of dairy and fat, from none of either in the case of sorbet, to lots of both in the case of ice cream. Apart from impacting taste, dairy and fat levels affect resistance when they’re being churned. So if you go from making ice cream to say a sorbet, you need to stop churning at a different point in the process to get the right result.

How do you keep the optimal texture without watching the mix? This ice cream maker automatically senses the hardness of the mixture based on your selection and keeps it ready until it’s time to serve. The pre-cool function takes the ice cream maker down to -30°C (-22°F), which gives your ice cream a head start. There are 12 hardness settings, so you can choose from sorbet, frozen yogurt, gelato and ice cream. Either use the automatic programs, or set it to manual for ultimate control. Once the ice cream is finished, you can set to keep cool for up to three hours until you are ready to serve. Durable and easy clean stainless steel housing, with BPA free internal parts.
