Stainless Steel Ice Cream Maker
Lello Musso Lussino, available through Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk

Love homemade, Italian-style ice cream? The Lello Lusso Mussino 4080 ice cream maker produces frozen desserts from scratch in less than an hour! Just add your favorite ice cream or sorbet ingredients to the built-in mixing bowl, and this high-end gelato maker with a built-in freezer will take care of the rest.

No Pre-Freezing Required = No Need to Plan Ahead

It is not surprising that the Musso Lussino has received tons of great reviews. Unlike many of the cheaper models which require you to pre-freeze the mixing bowl for up to 24 hours before making a batch of ice cream, this fully automatic, self-freezing ice cream and sorbet maker comes with a powerful compressor which freezes the contents of the mixing bowl without you ever having to remove the bowl from the machine. This means you no longer have to plan hours ahead; instead, you can just add the ingredients to the bowl and press two buttons, and you will have luscious Italian-style gelato in less than an hour. And, after churning out the first batch, this ingenious ice cream maker can immediately begin making another batch.

Superior Performance

If you have already read the reviews of the Musso Lussino on Amazon, you know that this all stainless steel ice cream maker has scored top marks for performance, and many people who have bought the Lello 4080 Musso Lussino feel this high-quality ice cream maker is worth its relatively high price. With its powerful, yet quiet motor and rapid operation, the Musso Lussino may well be one the best ice cream makers designed for home use and worth the investment if you are planning on making a lot of ice cream and other frozen desserts. It is not, however, fast enough to be commercial-grade.

Solid Stainless Steel Construction (BPA-Free)

Unlike most other fully-automatic, self-refrigerating ice cream makers out there, the Lello Musso Lussino 4080 is all stainless steel, except for the lid and the buttons, so it is extremely durable. This means that also the mixing paddle and bowl are all stainless steel, so you won't have to worry about plasticky odors tainting your dessert. And, as stainless steel is naturally free of Bisphenol-A, better known as BPA, you won't have to worry about your ice cream coming into contact with this controversial chemical, either.

Any Shortcomings?

The mixing bowl is integrated into the top of the machine which means there is no seam to collect bacteria and you won't have to worry about ice cream dripping down onto the motor. However, some Amazon reviewers see the fact that the bowl cannot be removed as a shortcoming as you will have to clean it over the machine. To make the clean-up easier, place the machine on a location where you can easily reach the bowl, and use a warm sponge to defrost any ice cream residue. You will want to have a permanent space for this machine on the countertop since it is rather heavy (this is another minus that frequently pops up in the user reviews).
