Klamer 2-in-1 in the test

In our test, the KLAMER 2-in-1 ice cream maker & yogurt maker 2 L from € 299.99 * one good impression. The design is elegant and the Containers made of metal is of high quality. The thermal conductivity is very good and cleaning is easy as the removable parts are dishwasher-safe.

The Assemble of the device is pleasing uncomplicated. You just have to remember that the lid has to be turned anticlockwise in order to snap it into place. The Opening in the lid for adding ingredients during operation rounds off the sophisticated design of the ice cream machine.

The Cooling is transferred indirectlyThis is due to the air gap between the machine and the container. This leads to a prolonged cooling phase, especially at the start of the ice cream production process. In contrast to my Nemox Gelatissimo I have not tested filling high-proof alcohol to improve the cold transmission. The seal between the gearbox and the motor does not appear to be designed for this purpose on this appliance.

One point of criticism that many ice cream makers in this price segment have is a Relatively large distance between agitator arm and container wall. This also means that the ice cream production process takes longer. The result is initially a softer ice cream, similar to soft ice cream, but after a certain amount of time in the freezer it achieves a pleasant creaminess. After a day in the freezer, the creaminess of the ice cream was better compared to the Nemox Gelatissimo not noticeably worse. However, this could also be due to the addition of Glycerin may be due to the

During operation, the volume is in the range of 55 - 60 dBwhich can be considered entirely appropriate.

The Operation the KLAMER 2-in-1 ice cream maker & yogurt maker 2 L from € 299.99 * is designed intuitive. The flashing display during operation and the continuous display when pausing takes some getting used to. This is particularly important when making yoghurt so that you don't accidentally remain in pause mode.

The Yoghurt preparation impressed in the test with its efficiency and silent operation.

One small point of criticism is the Complex designed agitator armwhich has a relatively large amount of ice stuck to it that cannot be easily removed. However, this may become easier with practice.

A positive highlight is the supplied Ice spatulawhich proved to be very practical for removing the ice cream from the container and for scraping the stirring arm, even if it looks unspectacular at first.

Last but not least, the manufacturer recommends disconnecting the ice cream maker from the power supply after use. A simple switch would make handling easier.

Conclusion on the Klamer ice cream maker

The KLAMER 2-in-1 ice cream maker & yogurt maker 2 L from € 299.99 * presents itself as Versatile and robust device. Their integrated cooling and heating system enables the production of Ice cream and yogurtThe appliance is equipped with a self-cooling compressor and a generous Capacity of 2 liters scores. The intuitive operation via a LCD display and the dishwasher-safeThe removable parts make both operation and cleaning much easier.

The indirect cold transfer and the slightly larger Distance between agitator arm and container wall prolong the freezing phase. Unfortunately, these points can also be found in other ice cream makers in this price segment. If you want to avoid this, you will unfortunately have to dig deeper into your pockets.

Overall, the Klamer 2-in-1 is a solid device. However, the manufacturer could still improve one or two points.
