With this particular appliance, users will be able to easily turn frozen fruits into delicious, guilt-free treats that are entirely devoid of the additional chemicals and preserving agents that are so often found in store-bought ice cream. You’ll also be able to cut back on the cost of commercially-produced frozen yogurt and ice cream. Best of all, this model will help you control the exact amount of sugar and fat that goes into your food. All you need to do is place your semi-frozen fruits in the appliance and allow it to churn before enjoying your delicious concoctions.
Therefore, if you’re on a diet or if you suffer from a medical condition such as diabetes, you can use the Yonanas 902 to control the fat and calories that go into your food. For example, if you can’t take sugar, you can very easily substitute it for artificial sweetener or even honey. Indeed, several users claimed to have used this particular model for greater precision over their food. Customers will also be happy to learn that the parts are detachable and entirely dishwasher-safe which makes it easier to clean up.
Although it’s designed for soft serve or firmer ice cream, this particular model can also be used to make other types of delicacies such as frozen drinks, custard, yogurt, sorbet, sherbet and the likes. As a nice addition, thanks to its modern black and silver design, this appliance will certainly add some extra flair and panache to your overall kitchen décor.
On the flip side, while it does certainly have numerous advantages to its name, a few users have pointed out some downsides to this appliance. For instance, quite a few people found the unit to be on the louder side and claimed that the noise got irritating after a while. Even though, considering its price, this machine certainly does provide excellent value for money.
Thanks to the Yonanas, users will be able to make up to 1 qt. of soft-serve ice cream in one batch, which is a fair amount for such a small appliance. In fact, some users have commented that they got better results with larger batches than individual portions, and this is something to consider before preparing your ice cream. Additionally, if you’d prefer your ice cream frozen than soft-serve, this can be easily achieved by placing your ice cream in the freezer for a few hours.
The best thing about this particular ice cream maker is that, contrary to most models, it only requires around six minutes to perfectly blend your frozen fruits into soft-serve ice cream. Indeed, although this appliance doesn’t come with such a big capacity as the similarly-priced models Cuisinart ICE-20 and Nostalgia Old Fashioned, it comes with the advantage of preparing delicious soft-serve ice cream faster than most other models.
