- The Best Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the milk, cream and 1/4 cup of the sugar. With the tip of a knife, scrape the seeds from the vanilla beans into the pan, then toss the pods into the pan. Place over medium heat and bring just to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and let steep for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, vigorously whisk together the egg yolks, salt and the remaining 1/2 cup sugar until the mixture falls in a thick, wide ribbon when the whisk is lifted. Remove the vanilla pods from the milk mixture and reheat to a bare simmer. Slowly add the milk mixture to the yolk mixture while whisking constantly. Pour the custard back into the pan and cook gently over medium-low heat, stirring often with a wooden spoon, until thickened enough to coat the spoon, about 3 minutes. Draw a finger across the spoon. The custard is ready if it does not immediately bleed back together. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean storage container, let cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate overnight.
Pour the chilled custard into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to a tightly covered container and freeze for at least 6 hours before serving. Makes 1 1/2 quarts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShtTech from 5 years later It almost Christmas 2019 and I was given Breville Smart Scoop for Christmas in 2014. I did not expect it to last this long because of how often it is used. It still makes wonderful gelato and has been worth the investment. If someone made pie or birthday cake, someone would have to make vanilla gelato to go with it. I have also made ice cream, but my family prefers the texture and flavor of gelato without any add ins. The "add in" feature works, but I've only used it a couple of times which may have added to the life span of my unit. I usually use the pre cool and keep cool functions. The finish alarm on the loud setting can heard from upstairs which is very helpful. However, the machine is too big to leave out on our counters, so it requires some heavy lifting from storage to counter. I hope it continues to work long after this post.Date published: 2019-12-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Boston_home_cook from Great tool for making frozen desserts This machine works really. It is far superior for making ice cream when compared to the systems that lack a compressor. Its display gives the user indications of where the ice cream is at in the production process, has a notification for when solid mixings can be added in, and has a final notification for when the freezing process is complete. This product will make ice cream somewhat solid, but can't entirely freeze ice cream to a cone filling consistency. Reason being ice cream for such uses is rather solid. As a result, if ice cream made in this machine is desired for cones, you'll need to put your fresh ice cream into a freezer for some time. Overall it's a great product, and a great purchase. Don't waste money on the freezer bowl mixers. Go with one of these machines that has a built in compressor. Competing products have a power rating of round 150W to 180W. This product consumes 288W, so it's powerful. Again, great product.Date published: 2019-07-03Rated 5 out of 5 by ANJ Chefs from Great Icecream Maker! The Breville Compressor is the best ice cream maker I have ever used. The results are perfect ice cream every time. I have made it with fresh fruit and nuts and it is absolutely delicious! It is a bit expensive but worth every dollar.Date published: 2017-08-22Rated 5 out of 5 by a12345 from Great Ice Cream Maker I bought this a couple of months ago and absolutely love it.Date published: 2017-08-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Tornadosplash44 from Professional Homemade Ice Cream at Home! I was on the lookout for a new ice cream maker and did a lot of research to find a good one. After plenty of research, I had to go with this one, and boy... I'm so glad I did! The machine may be expensive, but trust me, you get what you pay for! I love how you don't have to pre-freeze any bowls that way I can make ice cream whenever I want! Plus the Pre-Cool and Keep Cool Buttons are Super Convenient! Plus the hardness dial to get the exact consistency I want! But what sold me is the ice cream truck sounds to alert you your dessert is ready! I have made several desserts in this machine, and let me tell you, the results are out of this world! If you love homemade ice cream and want professional results at home, this is the machine for you!Date published: 2017-07-31Rated 5 out of 5 by Robi from Best ice cream maker The Breville Smart Scoop makes the most delicious ice cream. I have used the starters from Williams-Sonoma and highly recommend them. This compressor is a work horse and can handle batch after batch. I have made ice cream and frozen yogurt everyday since I bought this machine. I never expected it to be so easy and taste so good!Date published: 2017-07-10Rated 5 out of 5 by efgraphx from It is a great Ice Cream Machine I've owned this machine for a few years now and have used it a lot. From hard Ice Cream to Gelato. It really has been a work horse for me, with no problems. Being it has it's own compressor, but makes the ice cream within 45 minutes. easy to clean and really has been a joy to own. It is covenant to use compared to the pre freeze models which you have to freeze 24 hours ahead of time. This freezes right away and is ready to use with in 10 minutes. Great product!! The size is no problem and great on the counter with ease.Date published: 2017-06-27Rated 1 out of 5 by jccwc from Performs same as cheaper model, save up for Lello I've owned this machine for approximately 3 years so I've tried it many times. Getting your ice cream out of the mixing bowl is a pain because there's a non removable post in the middle of the bowl so scooping out the ice cream is difficult. Even the firmest setting doesn't make ready to eat ice cream as it's motor can't churn past very soft ice cream. It takes 50 minutes for a mushy consistency that still needs to be refrigerated. The dasher doesn't scrape down the sides well so a layer forms on the sides not allowing the middle to freeze as quickly creating ice crystals (rough texture of ice cream). The cool down feature isn't great. Putting the cooked custard base in an ice bath then the refrigerator works better. The mixing bowl is very narrow, and I'm unsure from what type of metal it is constructed, maybe aluminum. It does have a nice tone to tell you know when to put in add-ins, and when it's done. Mine is going to be sold at a yard sale. I saved up and bought a Lello which is quiet, easy to remove ice cream, easy to clean, all stainless steel, and makes ice cream in 20 minutes. Yep, 20 minutes.Date published: 2017-06-05
I can’t seem to keep the Ice cream on the counter long without it melting to liquid consistency… It comes out pretty well .. then several hours in the freezer but is hard to get the lid off of the stainless container from w s & melts FAST. Any tips ?Depending on the ingredients used to make the ice cream, the melting point can be significantly lowered to where it will need to be dished out but immediately placed back in the freezer to maintain consistency.Date published: 2019-07-13
Is it possible to make margaritas with this machine?The Breville® Smart Scoop™ Ice Cream Maker would not be compatible with making margaritas.Date published: 2019-06-18
