One of the secrets to wonderful ice cream, gelato, or sorbet is quick churning. Professional Italian gelato machines will churn within a few minutes. The quicker a mixture goes from liquid to solid, the smaller the ice crystals are and the smoother the product. Therefore, help out your ice cream maker by properly chilling mixture before you churn. This will reduce churning time and give you a more professional and delectable outcome.
