Sensio Ice Cream Maker UK Review - Gelato Sorbet and Frozen Yoghurt Machine

Thanks for taking the time to read our UK review of the highly buyer rated Sensio home digital ice cream maker. This home ice cream maker came out as the number one buyer rated ice cream, currently available on the UK market.

Given the competition that is very impressive.

Please note that this is an ice cream maker where you do need to freeze the bowl the night before. Ideally the bowl should be frozen for at least 12 hours.

This is typical for the lower priced ice cream makers. If you want to be able to make ice cream without having to freeze a bowl, then you need to buy an ice cream maker with a compressor. Those cost anything between £145-200. You can check out our top 11 list of ice cream makers by clicking here.

There we will explain the differences in these types of machine, and also show you some of those compressor ice cream makers.

However this Sensio ice cream maker is typical of what is available on the UK market, and this model does get the highest online buyer reviews. It can make ice cream, sorbet, gelato and frozen yoghurt in approximately 20 minutes, once the bowl has been frozen

This ice cream maker has a digital timer and LCD display. It is also covered with a 2 year guarantee.

This ice cream maker makes soft scoop ice cream. You can then freeze it again if you prefer to have a harder type of ice cream. The ice cream however will always be soft and creamy, and not the harder type of ice cream. You can use this machine to make vegan ice cream if you prefer.

It is really important that you freeze the bowl for up to 12 hours beforehand. If you have the frozen bowl then it takes about 20 minutes to make the ice cream.
