Pros Of Breville ice cream maker

  1. It looks great!
     At the moment, probably the ​best looking domestic ice cream available in the Smart Scoop according to me. It has nice lines, pleasing symmetry, and a top-quality brushed steel finish. It’s going to look great on any countertop!
  2. The Pre-Cool function is really helpful
    I find the automatic Pre-Cool function very useful. It’s good to see the temperature falling on the LCD display. And I like the way it alerts me when the temperature’s as low as it’s going to get and it’s the right time to add my ice cream mixture.
  3. The Keep Cool function works surprisingly well​
    The Keep Cool function works well despite my misgivings. Being able to add my mixture to the machine and then walk away for over 3 hours is very liberating. I can make my desserts well in advance. I can get on with a whole load of other things. The business will be taken away by Smart Scoop for sure!
  4. The temperature display is re-assuring​
    The temperature of the bowl is constantly displayed on the LCD display. This display is really useful. If the temperature is low, it re-assures you that everything is going well. And if it’s not low, it’s an indication that somethings not quite right!
  5. Adding mix-ins is super easy!
    The Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker makes it really easy if you want to add pieces of candy, nuts, chocolate, fruit or basically anything you can think of. Not only does it have a flap in the lid too so you don’t have to actually remove the id (and believe me, getting the lid off ice cream makers is always a bit fiddly). It will also beep to let you know the best time to add those mix-ins! This is really useful.

Cons Of Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker

  1. The ice cream can be icy
    The Smart Scoop takes much longer to freeze and churn the mixture into ice cream than other machines. And because of this, the ice cream can be icier. This is probably due to the paddle design which only has one blade and leaves a large gap between that blade and the sides of the bowl.
  2. The Hardness Settings are confusing
    It doesn’t matter which hardness setting you choose when the machine reaches that consistency and stops, the dessert will always be softer than it should be and will need firming up in your freezer. So what’s the point of the hardness settings?! Do they vary the amount of air in the ice cream? Well no, not really…
  3. There’s no way to vary the amount of air in your dessert
    While the Cuisinart ICE-100 uses two paddles to vary the amount of air that’s added to the ice cream, the Smart Scoop depends on shorter program times, controlled by the hardness settings. But they just don’t work very well. So more or less the same amount of air is contained in both ice cream and gelato.
  4. The 1-year warranty!
    ​A one year warranty on a machine like this seems very tight to me. Compressor machines can be quite delicate. They’re also an expensive investment. A decent length warranty provides peace of mind. And if Cuisinart can provide a 3-year warranty, why can’t Breville?


The Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker has more features than any other domestic ice cream maker on the market. It’s also pretty expensive, second only in fact, to the professional level, Musso machines.

The Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker is so ideal for very special occasions in the family-like birthday, anniversary, graduation or grand reunion. What makes them even more special are the homemade desserts prepared by the host himself.
