Ice cream makers practically have “summer” written all over them, and Breville’s Smart Scoop is among the best we’ve checked out.
Most ice cream makers can only make one batch per day, forcing you to refreeze the gel canister, but the Smart Scoop relies on a compressor to keep the canister cold, and as such, means you can make a litre of ice cream, gelato, sorbet, or frozen yoghurt, and then make batch after batch until you’re done, with no refreezing time in the process.
It’s a little bit more than some of the other ice cream makers out there, but it can make ice cream continuously, which we’re sure everyone will love.
Carbonated drinks practically make a party (that and booze, but we’ll get to that shortly), and SodaStream’s modern day take on what its classic fizz-injecting appliance should be means you can revive the concept with a stylish design in your home.
Whether you’re after soda water, or are making drinks for the kids with cordials or soft drink syrups, the Source is one of those appliances that makes summer fun for the entire family.
And then there’s the appliance that is fun for the adults in the family, and if you’re a beer drinker, the Tap King is the first of its kind, as Lion Beverages try to craft a Nespresso equivalent of what a beer keg system could be like.
Not everyone has the same level of success with it, and there are only a few styles of beer available, but if summer means relaxing and having the odd adult drink, this is one gadget you’ll want to check out.
