You don't have to wait or re-freeze. The respin button is primarily designed to mix in solid chunks after the churned texture is achieved. There is some lighter blending action but since it isn't the same intensity it can't be used on the solid frozen product. You can press it right after spinning. I suspect that its function in making things creamier is primarily by warming up the ice cream

re: next-day scoop-ability:

 

I don't think these machines are made with that in mind.  Isn't the allure that you can freshly "spin" a few portions at a time and use recipes that don't rely on the usual fat-sugar-solids ratios of traditional ice cream to stay soft?

This is exactly how I've understood them and seen them used in restaurant kitchens.

Any interest in me picking one of these things up and doing a complete physical breakdown with pictures? My background is in electronics/mechatronics, I spend most of my days dismantling and rebuilding things (particularly old stereos but new equipment as it comes through too), and I'm really sort of curious to know what the guts of this machine look like. Maybe after a couple of drinks on a Saturday night I might be mentally lubricated enough to click that "add to cart" button...

May as well ask for the full Modernist Cuisine photo montage of the thing chopped up like a Damien Hirst shark... I'd Paypal somebody $5 for that if they can put out proof they could do it. Just need another 39 people to agree with me, and somebody to prove they're worth the (minimal) risk.

Except with a PacoJet you can pacotize  a few portions at a time.  Correct me if I am mistaken, but with the Ninja one must spin the entire beaker in one shot.

 

 

Correct, Ninja won't do partial portions

Yes, but I want that AND the ability to have it last for longer than just the one serving day.

Actually it will.  The manual actually says that if you eat some of the ice cream and freeze the leftovers, you can just rerun the original cycle if it froze too hard.  I did exactly that tonight.  Came out fine.

@mgaretz I'm referencing @JoNorvelleWalker's comment who said she thinks the Ninja Beaker must be spun in one shot.  Can you tell us if you can freeze say a cup of ice cream mixture in a beaker and spin that smaller amount?

 

You seem to be able to.  The manual actually says that if you eat some of the ice cream and freeze the leftovers, you can just rerun the original cycle if it froze too hard.  I did exactly that tonight.  Came out fine.

That's what I've thought as well.

P.S. :  I won't be ' spinning '

 

maybe ' processing '

 

or '  creating '

 

I plan to start w canned Pears.

 

they end up riper than peaches in the can

 

as pears ripen off the tree

 

Pears ( no added sugar , maybe pear juice )

 

a little G.Marnier  or TiaMaria , or Creme-d-menthe  etc

 

looking forward to it.

 

if you watch a few YouTube vids

 

( if you can stand the 'ads'  which are insipid )

 

its noisy.  and listening to the pitch of the motor

 

very high pitched , I doubt the motor will last ' forever '

 

I hoping one Creation a day , and 1/2 of that back in the freezer

 

for further Creation the next day

 

Kudos to @mgaretz for paving the way.

 

abd BB&B  for the $ 40  ( + free shipping )

 

all pass the saving along to TJ's Table Wine dept.

 

looking forward to this.

Sorry, you are right. I meant that you cannot spin only a portion of the container, like the Pacojet which will let you spin 1/4th of it at a time etc.
