any residues from manufacturing, as directed below.
• Never immerse the motor unit in water. Just clean it with a
• Clean the cooling bowl, lid, rings and paddle with warm
• NEVER clean parts with abrasive or harsh products. You
could damage them.
• Carefully dry all parts before use.
• Only the lid and paddle can be cleaned in a dishwasher.
Freezing the cooling bowl
• Remove the upper and lower rings from the cooling bowl.
Make certain that the bowl is perfectly dry inside and out
before leaving the empty bowl to freeze for at least 24
hours in a freezer at a temperature of –18°C or colder. The
freezing time may be longer in a combination refrigerator/free-
zer. Make sure the bowl is upright to ensure an even
distribution of the liquid between the walls when it freezes.
• You can check that your freezer is at the right temperature
using the indicator symbol located on the bowl: a snow
flake with green arrows around it will appear about 6 hours
after the container has been placed in the freezer compartment
and it shows that your bowl is in the process of freezing. If
nothing appears after around 10 hours, try lowering the
temperature of your freezer.
• Do not remove the cooling bowl from the freezer until just
before you want to churn the prepared mixture.
Preparing the mixture
• Prepare the ice cream mix (see separate recipe leaflet). The
colder your freezer is, the faster your ice cream maker will
work and the better the results will be. For recipes that
require heating the ingredients, remember to allow time for
your mixture to cool completely before churning! For best
results we recommend chilling the prepared mixture in a
refrigerator set at 4°C for at least 12 hours. For recipes using

mixture is, the faster the ice cream freezes and the better
• As the mixture will increase in volume during preparation,
do not exceed total quantity of ingredients - 1 kg for sorbets
and 1 litre for ice cream - and do not exceed maximum level
Assembling the ice cream maker
• Make certain the appliance is unplugged and start assembling
the components. When removing the bowl from the freezer,
take care to protect your hands with a towel or oven gloves
to prevent freezer burn.
a) - Place the frozen cooling bowl in the lower ring.
- Holding it by its handles, lift up the ring then turn it
until it gets to the notches: and click, its attached.
- Take the upper ring and whilst still holding the lower
ring by its handles, clip it in place (align the arrows on
the upper ring with the handles on the lower ring).
b) Secure the motor unit to the lid and fit the paddle into
the motor unit
. Make certain the motor unit is
c) Place the lid (with the motor unit positionned at the
back) on the bowl and turn slightly clockwise to lock it
. Make certain that the 4 notches are properly
Churning the ice cream
• Connect the ice cream maker and
run it immediately
before pouring in the mixture so the paddle turns, otherwise
the mixture will freeze onto the sides of the cooling container
immediately and the paddle will not turn.
• Once your appliance is running, pour the mixture through
the filling opening.
• Other ingredients can be added through the opening in the
lid (chocolate chips, small sweets, dried fruit, chopped nuts)
The paddle will

with the machine running. This is best done when the
mixture is nearly frozen so that the ingredients mix in
before it is too stiffly frozen. Do not switch off the ice
cream maker when adding additional ingredients.
• It will take between 10 and 30 minutes to make a delicious,
soft Italian style ice cream or sorbet. The exact time will
depend on the recipe, the quantity of ice cream, the room
temparature and initial temperature of the ingredients. Once
you have obtained the desired consistency, turn off the ap-
pliance and unplug it. Then immediately remove the paddle.
• When the ice cream or sorbet starts to melt at the sides of
the bowl or on the surface, it is ready. So as not to put a
strain on the motor, the appliance will change the direction
of rotation when the mix becomes too compact. If this
occurs repeatedly, this means the ice cream preparation is
ready. Press the ON/OFF button to turn the appliance off.
The light will go off. Unplug the appliance.
• Remove the lid, raising the motor unit slightly and turn
anti-clockwise. Remove the paddle. Disassemble the motor
unit by pressing down on the two release buttons (A1).
• Using metal utensils could damage the cooling bowl. Only
use a wooden or plastic spatula to remove the ice cream.
• The ice cream can be kept in the cooling bowl before
serving for a maximum of 5 minutes, with the paddle
removed, or transferred to a storage container with a lid
and placed in the freezer for 30 min - 4 hours to harden,
depending on the type of ice cream or sorbet.

• Wash the bowl in warm water and dry thoroughly. Do not
use very hot or boiling water as the sudden temperature
change could damage the bowl. Return to the freezer. The
bowl will be partially chilled, so it will require less time in the
freezer, about 4-6 hours.

• The product is equipped with a safety device that stops the
appliance automatically if it overheats. Overheating may
occur if the recipe you are preparing is very thick or if the ice
cream maker runs for too long or if the ingredients added
(e.g. nuts, etc.) are not chopped finely enough. To start the
ice cream maker again, press the ON/OFF button and let it
cool down. After a few minutes you can start it up again.
• Do not run the ice cream maker longer than necessary.
• Disassemble the appliance.
• Only the lid (without the motor unit) and the paddle can be
washed in the upper rack of the dishwasher.
• The bowl and rings can be cleaned in warm water and
washing up liquid (do not use hot or boiling water as it
could lead to expansion and damage the cooling bowl).
• The motor unit must not be washed in the dishwasher. Just
wipe it with a damp cloth.
• Never clean the parts with abrasive products, as this could
• Dry the bowl thoroughly before putting it back in the freezer
(without the rings). If you are not returning it to the frezzer,
leave the cooling bowl to thaw at room temperature in the
sink, then dry thoroughly before storing.
Advice and tips
• Ice cream preparations containing a high proportion of
sugar, fats or alcohol may require more time to freeze or
may even not stiffen.
• Alcohol inhibits the freezing process so we advise you only
add alcohol once the ice cream maker is running and the
preparation is already half frozen.
• We advise you to prepare the ingredients before taking the
bowl out of the freezer so that the bowl will be as cold as
possible on start-up.
Do not run the
the freezer or
TE_SORBETIERE_NORD_EN_2551162_NORD 23/02/12 09:18 Page9
• Any preparation poured into the cooling bowl must be liquid
and cold. Do not use stiff ingredients like whipped cream or
already frozen liquids to prepare the ice cream.
• Plan your ice cream or sorbet making the previous day.
Some recipes require the ingredients to be chilled for a mini-
mum of 12 hours in the refrigerator, before transferring to
the ice cream maker for freezing.
• Some recipes require the milk to be heated to just below
boiling point, then it is whisked into the beaten eggs and
sugar, similar to making homemade custard. The mixture is
then returned to the heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens
slightly and forms a film over the back of a wooden spoon.
Do not let it boil or the mixture will separate. If the mixture
curdles at any stage during preparation it can be processed
in a blender or food processor for one minute, to make it
• When making ice cream hygiene is of the utmost importance.
Make sure that the ice cream maker is thoroughly clean,
especially the parts that come in contact with the mixture,
and all the equipment and utensils used when preparing
the mixture. Always use fresh ingredients that are within
there best before date, especially eggs, milk and cream.
• Add additional ingredients like chopped chocolate or
chocolate chips, finely chopped nuts, raisins, through the
lid aperture when the mixture just starts to freeze. If the
pieces are too large they may obstruct the paddle from
STORING & SERVING
• Ice cream or sorbet can be stored in the freezer in the
covered cooling bowl for about 5 minutes after it is ready,
but make sure the paddle has been removed. If you want to
make it firmer in consistency, transfer it to a separate
container with a lid and leave in the freezer for about two to
four hours depending on the ingredients in the recipe.
• The maximum recommend storage times in sealed container
- Ice cream made with fresh, raw ingredients:
up to 1 week.
TE_SORBETIERE_NORD_EN_2551162_NORD 23/02/12 09:18 Page10
- Sorbet, frozen yogurt or yoghurt based ice cream:
1 to 2 weeks.
- Ice cream made with semi-cooked ingredients (such as
custard based ice creams):
1 to 2 weeks.
Ice cream tastes best when freshly made, and will lose its
texture and fresh flavour if kept too long.
• Home-made ice cream will harden during storage in the
freezer and the texture is different from the original soft,
spoonable consistency. To make serving stored ice cream
easier, remove from the freezer about 15–30 minutes be-
forehand and store in the refrigerator to allow it to soften
slightly. Remember sorbets defrost quicker than ice cream.
• Ice cream and sorbet tastes best when freshly made, and
will lose its texture and fresh flavour if kept too long.
• Defrosted or partially defrosted ice cream must never be re-
• Ice cream or sorbet that contains raw or partially cooked
eggs should not be given to young children, pregnant
women, the elderly or people who are generally unwell.
