I am thinking of purchasing this ice cream maker as it is one of few I have tracked down with a stainless steel bowl. I have one concern from the many positive reviews I have read concerning the strength of the paddle as I understand it is plastic and some users have reported this breaking.
I would also like to know if this machine will make Vegan ice cream with no sugar added using say rice or coconut milk and sweetening with fruit instead of sugar.
Hello,First, don't fret about the plastic. Though some plastic breaks, but some don't. It all depends on the user. Some people are not mindful or careful when using unit's like this and this is why they have their plastic broken. I believe if you handle yours with care, it would last longer. Nothing last forever, the way you handle it will determine how long it would last.The answer to your second question is yes. The machine can make Vegan ice cream with no sugar added using rice or coconut milk and sweetening with fruit........I hope this is clear now. If you have anymore question(s), please let me know.Good luck. Read More At : DeLonghi...
