One of the most recommended machines on the market, the Lello 4080 Musso Lussino is globally acclaimed for its exceptional features that will undoubtedly make you feel like you’re enjoying a fresh Gelato in Italy. Indeed, quite a few users commented that this appliance delivered ice cream that could easily rival the quality they got at ice cream shops. Best of all, you’ll be sure to constantly have your favorite frozen treats on hand. Whether you’re in the mood for frozen yogurt, Gelato or regular ice cream, this appliance will certainly give you the upper hand over a plethora of frozen desserts.
For example, if you’re diabetic and can’t normally indulge in sugar, there’s absolutely no need for you to avoid ice cream anymore. Quite on the contrary, you can use this machine to personalize your dessert by replacing the sugar with honey or artificial sweetener or simply by skipping it altogether. Similarly, customers who feel like they don’t like the overly-frozen texture of store-bought ice cream can select their own consistency by making their ice cream at home. With this appliance, you’ll even be able to add extra ingredients like chocolate chips, coconut flakes, raisins, toasted almonds and other such delicacies to your ice cream mixture.
In spite of its highly professional features, this appliance remains surprisingly easy to use, even if you’ve never operated an ice cream maker before. The boxed packaging also includes a detailed instructions manual as well as a recipe book to help you better understand the functionalities of the machine and make delicious, nutritious treats in no time at all. With its larger-than-average capacity, the machine can easily be used to cater to parties, barbecue dinners and other such gatherings. Priced between $700 and $800, this is certainly on the more expensive side but the features and longevity are certainly worth the price.
On the flip side, this model does come with some minor drawbacks. For instance, users might find it on the bulkier side and may find that the appliance requires quite a bit of counter space. Another person complained about the fact that the machine has only been designed to make Gelato and aerated ice-cream, even if other people successfully managed to make frozen yogurt and soft-serve ice cream with the same appliance.
With a 1-1/2 quart capacity bowl the Lello Musso Lussino can make as much ice cream per batch as the popular models Cuisinart ICE-100 and Cuisinart Supreme. This generous capacity will ensure that you always have ice cream on stock in your freezer. Customers can also use this appliance whenever they have to cater to larger gatherings.
This machine only requires a churning time of 20 minutes for your mixture to be ready and provide you with a generous amount of soft-serve ice cream. However, if you want your ice cream o have a firmer consistency, you can allow it to rest in the freezer for a few hours after the churning process.
Extra Features: 5/5
