How to buy the Best Japanese Ice Cream maker

I have posted a couple of times some recipes on a some delicious Japanese Ice Cream. Ones I remember were homemade Japanese Green Tea and Soy Sauce Ice Cream and the yummy, plain Japanese Matcha Ice Cream .

You can make yummy Japanese ice cream at home, as good as any first class store brand, if you select a good quality ice cream maker and follow a few guidelines. Just as the best rice cookers are Japanese so are ice cream makers. Ice cream makers can vary in cost from less than $100 to more than than $500. The more expensive models have integrated freezing compressors , while the less costly Japanese ice cream makers are completely appropriate for use at home and come in two basic types. There is the type that needs rock salt and ice to chill the ice cream concoction and the model that has a container that is placed in your freezer. Both of these Japanese ice cream makers have either an electric crank or a hand crank. Your needs will decide which is right for you.

If you love to make a big amount of Japanese ice cream, you will need to pay for a machine that uses rock salt and ice. The canister models will only make up to one and a half litres of Japanese ice cream in a batch. If you would like to make Japanese ice cream production into a family activity, you can opt for the hand-crank version, it also uses rock salt and ice. The crank must be turned for quite a long time, so every family member gets a turn. The electric crank is a lot easier. You will also get more dependable results owing to the bowl turning at a steady speed. Most electric crank Japanese ice cream makers have an automated shut off feature that will stop the crank when the ice cream reaches the desired consistancy.

After you choose which type of ice cream maker is right for you, you will need to find the perfect Japanese ice cream recipe. Remember that the quicker the ice cream freezes, the better it will taste and the smoother the texture will be. It will be best to pre-mix all your ingredients and let them cool down for several hours before putting them in the Japanese ice cream machine. When your ice cream is ready, it will resemble soft-serve ice cream. You can then place the canister in the freezer for at least a couple of hours and you will get better results. If your canister is plastic, think about taking out the Japanese ice cream as soon as it is ready, and placing it in a metal bowl covered with foil. The metal will allow the ice cream to freeze quicker and become firmer quicker than in a plastic container.

You can buy a mix that is quite easy to make into ice cream very quickly. While the mixes are convenient, the best home-made Japanese ice cream is made from top quality,choice, fresh ingredients. Milk, sugar, eggs, matcha, red bean, green tea, wasabi and cocoa if you desire will give you the greatest results. You can find numerous Japanese ice cream recipes, some which need cooking some which require no cooking. The best ice cream recipes usually contain eggs, however there are many recipes that do not use eggs if you or someone in your family is allergic to them.
