The Cube 750 is one of the most expensive ice machines you can buy for home use. Is the price justified and is it worth the purchase? You can read about it in my article.
If you are still unsure whether you should get such a device at all, then I can recommend my article Buy an ice cream machine: Yes or no recommend. In addition, I have set up a calculation, From when the purchase of an ice cream maker worthwhile.
Technical details of the Cube 750
First, a little background information: The ice machine is approximately cubic - hence the name "Cube". The ice production in one run is Maximum 750 g and lasts approx. 20 minutes.
The ice cream maker is therefore ideal for a 1 to 3 person household suitable. You can easily make several types of ice cream in a row. To do this, only the ice cream container is wiped out once briefly.
Due to the low Footprint from 30 x 30 cm the Cube 750 is very good for small kitchens suitable.
The power consumption is 140 watts, which is relatively energy-efficient. The strong engine causes the agitator to reliably scrape the resulting ice from the walls of the container. At 64 revolutions per minute, the result is a very fine and creamy ice cream.
The Cube 750 is manufactured in Italy handmade in small quantity. It is completely made of Stainless steel and therefore a durable device. Despite the small size, it weighs 16 kg because of the material. This professional ice machine is suitable even for the requirements of a small catering business.
The Cube 750 is very easy to operate. At the front there are one Cooling switch and that Agitator and a rotary knob for the Timer. A Instruction manual can be found below.
In addition, this ice cream maker is designed with safety in mind. The Agitator stops immediately, as soon as the Lid removed will. You can therefore not accidentally reach into the running machine. Some may interpret it as a shortcoming, since nothing can be added during ice cream production. Just think of the dripping of liquid chocolate in stracciatella ice cream. With the Cube, you have to stop the mixer, remove the lid, and then add the chocolate.
There is a solution that is practiced by very many cube owners. One puts Magnets on the corresponding places of the cube and thus leverages the safety precaution. Keep in mind that this is not a recommendation on my part and you do this at your own risk!
Since the tank is permanently installed, the Temperature transfer direct and very efficient. However, some also see a Disadvantage in it, as the cleanup is somewhat more difficult.
The Compressor is amazingly quiet and very reliable. The agitator has enough power to mix the ice well and to beat in air, even to the end.
Operation of the Cube 750
What you have to consider for the operation of the Cube 750, you will find in the included Instruction manual. Here I give you only a small Overviewso that you get an idea of the handling:
- First, the agitator is inserted and fixed in place.
- Then use the knob to set the preparation time (usually 20 - 30 minutes).
- Next, the cooling is switched on and the mass is poured in.
Here there is a large Difference to other ice machines with a filler opening in the lid. Because the Cube 750 should not be precooled for a long timeto prevent the ice mass from freezing when the agitator is at a standstill.
- As soon as the ice cream mass is in the cube, the lid is put on and the stirrer is started.
- When the ice is ready, both switches are turned off and the ice is removed with the included ice spatula.
The few disadvantages
As mentioned, the Cleanup somewhat more difficult due to the permanently installed ice container. However, the device can be operated with a Plastic spatula and microfiber cloths clean very well. You just have to be careful that no water gets into the shaft of the agitator. The Stirrer itself is dishwasher safe.
However, the biggest drawback of this ice cream maker is the Price. Depending on the market, this varies between 700 and 900 euros. That's quite a board and you have to think carefully if you are such a big ice cream fan that this purchase is worth it. However, there is no question that the quality of this ice cream maker is right and the price for a handmade stainless steel machine is justified.
The Cube 750 is distributed among others by www.eatal.de. The pictures used here were kindly provided to me by Mr. Fontana, the managing director. Sometimes it can also be purchased on Amazon or Ebay.
