DeLonghi GM6000 Gelato Maker

5 posts in this topic

Where in the Lower Mainland can I find one of these wonderful machines? I missed out buying it at a great deal from William Sonoma for under $200.

I don't care for the "bowl in the freezer" type as I don't have much freezer space and I've been there and done that and I was not impressed with the results. The Cuisinart self-refrigeration unit which I was eyeing awhile back did not have an overwhelming review so nix that.

Try Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/DeLonghi-GM6000-Gelato-Self-Refrigerating-Compressor/dp/B002RT91FM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1280009284&sr=8-1

BTW, the container holds more than the 1.5 pints as sometimes listed online. The container holds 1 quart, with about 1/2" head room remaining. A couple people on Amazon have noticed this error in the specs also.

Thanks for the Amazon link but I much prefer to buy this in person in a store.

Sur La Table is selling the machine for $299. Macy's may have it for the same price. Williams Sonoma is out of stock and will remain so after their fire sale last wk. I haven't seen the machine at a cheaper price elsewhere. Perhaps another EGulleter can help you.

Big bump: It's for sale on moofi today (and beyond?) for US$199.99 + 5.00 shipping (new unit, 1-year warranty).


Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and their readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."
