looking to upgrade my gelato machine, anyone have any experience with the musso lello machines?

I just succumbed to Covid Cabin Fever and purchased the 4080 to wile away my boredom. While waiting for delivery I saw a review claiming that that the Lello's churn "Trancendant" ice cream, and had a good laugh - until I tasted my very first spoonful... Yep, this is some kinda transcendent ice-cream!

Highest reconmendation for one of the prettiest appliances you'll ever buy.

From the ingredients panel and nutritional info below for Haagen Dazs Vanilla Bean ice cream, can anyone tell me the source of the sodium shown? I agree that most sweets benefit from a little salt but do not understand its source here.

looks like there is 120 grams in one cup of milk  https://albertamilk.com/ask-dairy-farmer/why-is-there-a-large-amount-of-sodium-in-milk/

Tony,

There are a lot of substances and ingredients that contain natural sodium. I did a search of the ingredients listed on the label you posted at https://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/spices-and-herbs/219/2 and all of them other than cane sugar contain some natural sodium. FYI, there is also natural sodium in flours, which might surprise some people.

I don't think that you will find any vanilla ice cream that does not contain natural sodium. The good news in your case is that a cup of the Haagen Dazs ice cream contains a total of 120 mg sodium. That is the equivalent of 120/2325 = 5.16% of a teaspoon of salt.

Thanks, Peter. Interesting! I would probably add salt to it, especially if there is any chocolate involved.

After my last gelato machine died on me 10 years ago, I finally replaced it. First batch: dark chocolate gelato w/espresso coffee mixed in. Now I just need to wait a few hours as it relaxes in the freezer.

Is a Gelato making machine any different than an Ice Cream machine ?
We have an Ice Cream maker.  Don't use it very ofter though.

Thank you Bruce!

Yes it is different than a regular ice cream machine. The main spindle turns at a slower rate so that it does not add as much air, plus the paddle design adds to the overall product. This combo creates a more dense consitancy and the texture that stays silkier/softer. Gelato is served at a bit warmer temp vs regular ice cream and has less fat.

Like several others in this thread, my machine is a Lello 4080 Musso Lussino.

3.5 servings per container.

Yeah, right!

Probably a misprint and most likely should have been 3.5 containers per serving.

What recipe are you using for your gelato?

I also have the Lello Musso and love it. By the way - if you want a great ice cream book, “Hello My Name Is Ice Cream” by Dana Cree is absolutely fantastic. Also, the sorbet recipe in the Superiority Burger cook book is 💯

Agreed, Dana's book is excellent and one of my go to books as a resource. I also tracked down a book called "Gelato Messina" which is a legendary shop in Australia. If you can find it the book is well worth picking up.

Good to know re: sorbet recipe in the Superiority Burger - I'll check it out, I appreciate the recommendation.

Here is the recipe I used: https://foodnouveau.com/blueberry-gelato/
