There's nothing better than making your own ice-cream, but most normal ice-cream makers are time-consuming and expensive. Luckily, at Ideal World we have a solution that's quick and easy and very impressive too.
Ice cream (or cream ice as it was originally called) dates back thousands of years. Alexander the Great ate snow covered in honey back in 300BC, and there's even reference in the Bible to King Solomon having a sweet iced drink (think slushy, or frappe).
However, modern ice cream as we know it didn't occur until 1744 (around the time of Handel and Walpole, at which time George Washington was only 12 years old, but in later life he owned his own ice-cream maker), but until the 1850s it was mostly only enjoyed by the rich elite. Then modern manufacturing and refridgeration techniques meant that everyone can enjoy it.
And we carry on revolutionising, too, with our easiest ever ice-cream maker to use, at a great low price to make it easy for you to enjoy your own ice cream.
