Breville BCI600XL Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker Review

Breville BCI600XLThe Breville BCI600XL Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker is guaranteed to provide you with delicious frozen treats and is one of the handiest tools to have in a kitchen. It is a 1.5-quart machine that has a self-refrigerating compressor and an optimum capacity of 700 ml to produce 900 ml of ice cream. With Breville BCI600XL, you can have excellent ice cream that is extremely creamy, smooth, and dense.


Maintains Hardness

The most innovative feature of the ice cream maker is that it allows you to choose several different levels of hardness for the frozen dessert. The user can choose to stop it churning and chilling sooner if they want a softer product or can keep it churning and chilling longer for a harder ice cream. Moreover, it can sense when the mixture is ready and stops at the appropriate time.

Stays Chilled

Unlike most types of ice cream-making machines, the Breville BCI600XL stays cold as the ice cream chills and churns. You can churn a lot longer, and the product will be firmer. In addition to this, you can pour in a mixture that is not quite completely chilled since you do not have worry about the bowl thawing before the mixture is fully churned. This ice cream maker comes with a keep-chilled feature that enables you to prepare the ice cream and leave it in the machine for up to three hours.

Pros and Cons

This machine comes with pre-cool and keep-cool functions and has adjustable temperature control that can modify texture. It is the quietest machine that can be run at any time of the day. The removable lid allows for easy access to ice cream while churning. With this machine, you can get a great texture. On the other hand, the freezer bowl is designed in a slightly awkward manner that requires the user to remove every bit of ice cream from the bowl. The dasher design makes for messy ice cream removal. Lastly, it is one of the heaviest machines you will find on the market.
