Using interviews with specialists, online reviews, and personal experience, TODAY editors, writers, and experts take care to recommend items their readers like and enjoy. In June 2019, they asked Chestnut and Corner Kitchen’s Pastry Chef, Heather Gressett, which ice cream maker makes her dreams come true!
From the article:
As temperatures heat up, there isn’t a more satisfying treat than a scoop (or three) of ice cream.
Mint chocolate chip and cookie dough are delicious, but if you’re looking for something a little more creative, why not make it yourself? Have you always dreamed of frozen ribbons of candy mixed in with chocolaty goodness or sweet fruity goodness blended with comforting notes of vanilla? All you need is a great ice cream maker to make those dreams a reality.
These tools of the trade are so easy to use (and yield such tasty results), they’re what the experts keep in their own home kitchens.
Heather Gressett, pastry chef of Corner Kitchen and Chestnut restaurants, recommended the Breville Smart Scoop. “I like the Breville for anyone who wants to experiment with other frozen desserts aside from ice cream, like sorbet or custard-style desserts, because it has 12 different hardness settings. It’s perfect for small batch recipes, too, so you can experiment and have fun with it,” Gressett told TODAY.
