There's a reason why they call ice cream, ice cream. Too much iciness and it feels like you're sucking flavored water, too much creaminess and it feels like you're suffocating on a stream of condensed milk. I'm not saying they're not delicious but texture plays with ice cream. That's why you need the Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker.
Why? Because the Smart Scoop is the first ice cream maker that "automatically senses the hardness of the mixture" based on your selection and keeps it at that texture until you're ready to eat. You have 12 hardness settings at your disposal including sorbet, frozen yogurt, gelato, ice cream, etc. The removable 1.5 quart also keeps you from eating it all in one sitting (or makes it easy to eat it all in one sitting). If I was buying an ice cream maker, this one sounds very delicious. $400 [Breville]
